But anyway, I'm really interested in the wide range of development that is Khivar. First of all because I've always had a thing for the villian. I love watching fall from grace that a really serious villian has to have. Since it is my opinion that people aren't born messed-up or despondent, experiences and tribulations have a lot to do with it. Just as they do with the hero. The villian is, to me, what happens when a person, faced with the same battles as another, takes an opposite, extreme approach.
Secondly, because I love when the actual character of the villian is explored. He's not just this bad-guy who is evil only to give the good-guy hell, but he's this developed character with views and opinions that could be rational, without the restaints that the hero has.
I'm more interested in Khivar, not as the big, bad, villian of Max and the Royal Four, but as an anti-hero. Everything that Max is not. That is what makes a bad guy, a bad guy; not having that certain purity and disipline as the hero.
So I guess I'm just asking the masses,
To me, Khivar is:
-Ruthless= I see him as someone who is rarely plagued with guilt or remorse. I can easily imagine him furious yet so calculating in his retort or punishment.
-Passionate= My Khivar is all rage, lust, joy and pain. He's ruled by them. While Max and....well all of the Pod Squad live their lives trying to govern their desires and personal wants for fear of what the repercussions might be, Khivar is a ever-wanting, never ceasing, desire. For power, glory, sex, control, you name it, he wants it all. I see him as someone, not cut off from feeling, but someone who feels so deeply that he becomes self-indulgent to satisfy or relieve what emotion overcomes him. Where one is angry, he is furious. Where one is infatuated, he is lustfully obsessed.
-Vengeful= I see Khivar as someone who can who a grudge for a long, long time. I see him as someone so calculating, that he would let himself simmer in hatred to insure a cruel, personal retaliation.
-Controlling= The Khivar that I envision is controlling to the point of sadism. No matter what, he will get what he wants and if he has to cut you down to a stump, he'll tear you out by the roots. I don't see him easily controlled by someone, not even in matters of love. I thought of this with Khivar and Vilandra. Though I'm not sure if he actually loved her(even though he came to Earth one time in the entire series and that was to get Vilandra), but if he did, he wasn't that swayed to not kill her and her family. It was what he wanted and nothing was able to pull him from that goal.
That's my 2 cents for now.
I would love anyone's input on how they see Khivar. I think that one great thing about the PTB slacking off on developing Khivar as a character, is that it offers little to no canon of who he is. He's, in my opinion, more of a blank canvas than anyone else on the show.
So, what is your Khivar like?
