View Full Version : Goodest Villain

May 25th, 2004, 10:30 AM
Ok, I just re-read "Bellmaker" and finished it last night when I figured out there was another good villain other than Romsca! Blaggut! So, I'm gonig to post a poll and you vote who you think is "goodest" and tell why.

And why not? I love the word goodest....I don't care if goodest isn't a word. It's *my* word. *huggles goodest*

Well, I've seen "goodly" used in literature but never yet "goodest".;) Anyway, I'm not sure how much one can really weigh up the two. Blaggut was pretty much always "good", whereas Romsca changed most dramatically, so that while the bosun was clearly "gooder" at the start one might say that everyone's favorite corsiar ferret changed most for the better.

Goodest...? Just a suggestion, Rilf; try to use real words in your topic titles next time. :p

Romsca was a villain who saw the light in the end, Blaggut was a good guy who had fallen in with a bad crowd from the start. I'd say Blaggut was the "more gooder" of the two.

Do you mean another grey character or just the best 'vermin' species member. Perhaps Blaggut was better than Romsca. I suppose he was more consistent.

Blaggut, Romsca never openly said she changed while Mr. Blaggut did.;)

I think having to be a mediator with the captives and the lizards caused her to click some kind of maternal instinct that the readers hadn't seen previously, so yes, I doubt she had reformed as such.

While Romsca was much more of a gray character than Blaggut (who didn't seem gray at all), Blaggut seemed like a pure goodbeast straight from the start, so I voted for Blaggut.

I'd also nominate Thura from "Salamandastron" (one of the "hurr mucker" stoats), who seemed plain silly and less evil than Dingeye. Well, only less evil because Dingeye cruelly abandoned him.

Blaggut easily, I agree Folgrimeo that he was never reall that much of a villian. He is also one of my favourite charactes so thats another he would have won:D
Though I do wish he had stayed at Redwall.

Blaggut. No more needed to be said...
