Commentary

I've never really cared for villains who are just evil for evil's sake -- the kind of 1980's Saturday morning cartoon villains who do bad things simply because they're evil and have no other reason -- Skeletor, Cobra, the Decepticons, etc. This is why I've always tried to make my villains a little bit more believable, with motives that make sense -- to them at least, if nobody else. There is always the question of how much they really believe their own rhetoric versus how much it's just something they tell themselves and others to justify their wanton greed and a lust for power; but ultimately, even the worst people in history never thought of themselves as evil. And neither do my villains.

Before it became defunct,  somebody on my old forum raised the question of why Horatio still works for the Empire, when he obviously doesn't believe in their brand of fundamentalism. Incidentally, I had been planning on addressing that very question for a long time already, and so here it is at last.
