The point is, that during the story, Alvin Ho is encouraged to make a Bucket List by his grandfather, a list of things he wants to do before he dies. It made me thing that this is a pretty good character exercise in general for characters as well. So, I've made a character list for Tim, my evil villain-in-training.
Tim's Evil Spring Loaded Metal Pail List
(Or Things To Do Before he is captured by Amaz-o-man, or his father kills him, whichever comes first.)
- Get through Dr. Stitchworth's class just once, without losing, misplacing or otherwise destroying my Science Project.
- Find out where those abandoned Mine Shafts underneath Father's Lair actually lead.
- Successfully complete an evil plot.
- Successful escape capture after an evil plot.
- Find my lost dissection project, once and for all.
- Find a medication which prevents fur allergies... that actually works.
- Find out if Master Viper's silver eye really is a cog, or just an iris.
So, what would some of the items from your character's bucket list look like?
