Viscount Calah

Because I needed a thread to analyze how much I hate him and why. :evil: Seriously, does the Viscount care about anything other than his own personal agenda? Either use this to analyze him or vent your frustration towards him. The two are not mutually exclusive in his case, I think.

To start the discussion, does Viscount Calah actually care about Lilith, or does he only care about the votes she brings him? To quote one unscrupulous reptilian politician:
Nothing beats the empathy game.
He also does not seem to make a lot of room in his schedule for spending time with her.

I'm sure at a certain degree he cares about her, but clearly not anywhere as much as he actually should.

I don't know about the rest of the people here, but I find it very hard to hate on a character who is never in the comic and holds a loosely defined position (no offense Dave). We have no idea how much time he literally has to spend doing his job, in addition to that we have no idea what his motivations concerning Namah are. realistically, she lives in the lap of luxury and while she isn't allowed to "exist" If she did it would be as the illegitimate child of the Viscount and not as anyone else.

The Viscount's sheltering of her could literally be shielding her from the outside world, which probably wouldn't be kind or would forget about her.

I'm not saying this is the best idea (digging a hole and all that) but it could explain his motivations.

Devil's advocate out.

Or just to protect his image. :(

He's a celebrity first, so I haven't been as appalled at his actions as I should be. I don't think we're going to ever get much of a touching moment between him and Namah. If we do, I have no doubt it'll be pretty tense.

It would probably involve a lot of yelling on Namah's part.

I mostly hate on the Viscount because of the way he treats Namah. I know what it feels like to not have any friends and feel alone. :cry: I just can't believe any parent worth his shorts would do something like that TO THEIR CHILD. It is quite possibly one of the most selfish acts I have ever heard of The poor girl is deprived of a normal life so that Calah can have a flawless image. It's just so....horrible!!!

Let me be a little heartless here, but isn't the best way of hiding an illegitimate child is to get rid of her quietly.

If you look at Tinsel, for example, first thing she does when Viscount's daughters cross her path is try to kill them even if she is to become their stepmother.

So clearly there is at least one character more cruel and selfish for al the hate to go into.
