Killer Blogfest - Antagonists

Yesterday was tough for me, but today I do have a clear winner  for my favorite antagonist and his name is... Erik from Gaston Leroux's Phantom of the Opera.
Erik has been painted in so many different roles. Some of them have been incredibly spooky and some have been sincere and sweet, but in the original, you can't help but love him for all that he is and all that he's not. Controlling, caring, conniving; in a word, complex. It's a great combination (and alliteration!)

This Killer Blogfest is brought to you by E.R. King and Deana. Thank you for hosting!


  1. He is great. I didn't event think of him! Gotta love an antag with a tragic backstory.

  2. The complex ones are always cool to me because you want to root for them too in a way. Great choice!

  3. Great choice and one that I had not considered.

    I am SO GLAD I FOUND YOU. I don't know why, but when I click on your photo under followers it takes me to a profile page that does not list your blog. I was able to link to you now by clicking on your name in the comment section of someone else's blog. It might have something to do with this new comment method (DISQUS) I am using. I am going to have to go back to the old version. I have something for you for being my 100th follower. Please email me @

    Thank you

  4. This is an excellent choice, and one I hadn't thought of myself at all, even though I love tragic antagonists. Great post!

  5. Such a great choice! Erik is dark yet alluring. You can't help but love his manipulative ways. Thanks for participating in the blogfest!

  6. Oh, awesome choice! How can you not root for him?

  7. Oh! I didn't think of him, but of course! He's a sexy villian....
