How do you like your villains? Naughty-by-nature or naughty-by-nurture?

 

I've been thinking about serial killers lately. And how weird it is that I've never met one. I mean, according to the world of fictional film and books, serial killers are everywhere, stalking our friends and neighbors, waiting in the bushes, and always watching. And yet, strangely, I can't recall the last time my path has crossed with an electric drill-wielding maniac or a cross-dressing cannibal. Maybe I should get out more.

 

Or maybe it says something about our fondness for conscience-free killers, naughty-by-nature villains who stalk, torture, murder, rinse, repeat without any obvious motive. Or without any motive at all. They're just born that way...

Interesting thought.  Actually, my killers are in it for the money.  I guess that is a conscience-free villain.
