Behind Door Number One We Have…
MASTER VILLIAN-Russell Edington- Vampire King of Mississippi!
Why is this vampire the master of True Blood villains? Certainly there are those that equal Russell in the pure tendency toward “evil”. However, nobody masters buisness appeal like Russell! Mastering buisness appeal itself has helped Russell control others. Controlling others effortlessly makes for a more masterful villian than any other.
Russell always manages to command the room (with an upright and wide posture) despite the fact that he may be the smallest, shortest individual/vampire in the room or area:
Russell always starts with a smile before any “polite” gesture:
Russell realizes the value of physical contact and a “handshake”:
Russell never loses eye contact when he makes a point, no matter what the other person is saying or doing or who they are:
Russell is the most dangerous and the most evil because he knows how to manipulate others like none other and claim that power in a way that is seemingly “civilzed” no matter how evil or “uncivilized” he actually is.
Behind Door Number Two We Have QUEEN SOPHIE-ANN:
Why is Queen Sophie-Ann so dangerous? Like Russell, she possesses the capacity for great selfishness and “evil” yet her power certainly has nothing to do with mastering her buisness or people skills for sure. Her power comes from PURE VIOLENCE (sexual and physical) and using her feminity to play men against each other, It also comes from playing her own sexuality and the sexuality of others. Her problems come from the magister who cares for none of those factors.
QSA simulataneously plays on her own sexuality and Bill Compton’s sexuality during his visit to her:
While this technique makes her (QSA) powerful enough and dangerous (because of the unpredictability and violence), it is a house of cards waiting to come down and not nearly as solid as the king’s power.
Now for the more minor villians:
Behind Door Number Three we have Debbie:
Are you surprised? Wait till you notice these signs…
Notice anything here? DING DING DING! Debbie is the werewolf version of QSA (including the non-body language cues, Debbie has an addiction to V. QSA has an addiction to spending money).
Behind Door Number Four we have Franklin Mott:
However, Franklin is too insane to be much of a powerful threat on a wide scale (though he is certainly dangerous).
Finally, are Bill and/or Eric villians? Let us do some photo comparisons…
Bill gets physically violent with women simply bc they annoy him:
Eric gets physically violent with the queen in order to save Pam and possibly himself from her “set up” that caused Pam’s torture and might causes their final death:
Really I could go on and on but I think you get the picture concerning both Eric and Bill.
You Decide. How would you rank “evil” on True Blood?
