I’m also battling with empathy for a character who has committed horrific acts. The backstory (referred to as death visions in the Opus of the Dead series) is full of his personal demons, making it difficult for me to know where to land. But in the end, I’m focusing on squishing personal bias and allowing this character to take life organically.
Thanks to all of you who have waited so patiently. Know I’m giving it my all. It won’t be long now.
