When trying to figure out what I wanted to do for Day 6’s villain – the Fanatic, I found myself thinking about Renfield from the Dracula story. Specifically, I thought a lot about the portrayal done by Tom Waits in Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992).
Not that I went for a likeness, but I wanted that same kind of broken human. Someone who is so passionately a believer in their villainous boss as to be, well, a fanatic.
So here we have our fanatic – emaciated and wide eyed – and yes, a good bit damaged.
