Sidekicks, villains, and foils: Learning Character Development and Design

In character design as in life, opposites attract and react. Once you’ve defined who or what your character is about, designing an opposite character—a foe to the hero—will help to define your main character more clearly. Here you’ll learn what “hooks” can capture the essence of a universal sense of evil and how to key into emotions like fear, disgust, or malevolence, with carefully chosen elements to make your villain more memorable.
