Antagonists are the Heroes of their own Story World

Villain, Chalvaren Rising, Isa Ansgar, Dragons, Dragon Egg, Magic, Fantasy


The best stories, the ones we really remember, are drawn by how well the author lets the antagonist challenge the main characters.


My favorite heroes are the ones who learn something significant about their own world from their antagonists – usually a villain – who embodies the lesson the hero needs to take to heart, to change their world for the better.

The Story World

Antagonists want to rule their story world, no matter the setting, and the best in fiction use all their resources to keep the main characters away from the prize.

So, what about you, Readers? Who’s your favorite antagonist from fiction?
