Brand New Day

Good example here of the villain having a recognizable motivation for his evil actions.

The bad guy isn’t just intrinsically a bad guy. He/she/it has a REASON why he’s bad. There’s feelings and emotions and rationales and all kinds of backstory.

We don’t need to see all of it. We need to see enough to see the bad guy as something more than a cardboard cut-out of evil.
