Six For Sunday: Baddies Who Deserve Their Own Story


Six for Sunday is weekly prompt hosted by Steph at A Little But A Lot where we are encouraged to give our opinions on a certain topic or a book-related theme. 

This week's prompt is 'baddies who deserve their own story'. Now, I love a baddie and there are many who I absolutely love so this prompt is perfect for me. There are a few villains, however, who I would be thrilled to get to know more.

What baddies do you think deserve their own story? 

Baddies Who Deserve Their Own Story

1. Bellatrix Lestrange (Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling)

Bellatrix is extremely evil as one of Lord Voldemort's most loyal death eaters and some of the things she does throughout the series are inexplicable. However, I would love to have a story dedicated to her early life. How did she become a death eater? What was her upbringing like? I know J.K Rowling has given us snippets about her early life but I want to know more!

2. The Darkling (The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo)

Oh The Darkling! He is a bad boy that I admit to loving on a regular basis. I am really eager to learn about how he became The Darkling and what sent him on his path. He is such an intriguing character and I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting to know more about him.

3. Scythe Goddard (Arc of a Scythe Series by Neal Shusterman)

Scythe Goddard is the worst scythe you encounter in this mindblowing series and he, in my opinion was created for you to hate. I am very eager to find out where his views started off from and how he became a scythe in the first place. 

4. Ms Trunchbull (Matilda by Roald Dahl)

This is a long shot as sadly Roald Dahl has been dead for many years, but I would love to find out about Ms Trunchbull's upbringing and what led her to hate children like she does. Was she treated badly in her childhood? and if so could this have led to her being the evil tyrant that she was perceived as? Also, how in the world did she get a job as a teacher!?

5. Draco Malfoy (The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling)

Another Harry Potter entry but who could blame me when it has some of the most complex baddies of all time. Draco, yes I hated him at times, but I also felt sorry for him. I would love to read a novella or even a full length novel about him growing up in a strict pure blood family. Yes, he was a bully but he was also very misunderstood.

6. President Snow (The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins)

The Hunger Games is one of my favourite YA dystopian trilogies and this is down to a number of reasons. One was the complexity of President Snow. I would love a whole book dedicated to his rise to power in Panem and how he became a sadistic ruler.
