Create a bad guy (BG)

Imagine a bad guy (or girl or monster or whatever). Write a one-page description of how the BG looks, smells, acts, sounds and moves. Include details that make your BG unique or interesting, like a hobby, talent or skill. Write about the BG’s background and family. Share his or her fears, goals and dreams. Describe what kind of trouble the BG has caused and why.
