Alright folks, here's another question who's relevance, (like the will only come into play in a few months: Which villain do you think is the best? I am not talking just about their actor's portrayal, but also their character, scheme, and motives.

Oohh, tough choice.

I'm rather partial to Saavy since he's something of a villain "different" rather than the typical I-don't-care-about-anybody-but-me kinda guy. He was a decent person who went over the deep end when he thought his entire village had been destroyed by two very selfish boys. Gehn is a close second since I see him as being a tad like that too.

So I'm focusing on who I see as the most *interesting* villain (which is different from the "best" villain in the question, really).

If we're going with "best" as in most effective, I would say Ae'garis hands down. He managed to manipulate someone else into destroying an entire civilization just because he wanted to get even for what he saw as a personal injustice. And to this day, everyone still blames Ti'ana for it. Wow, talk about a master of the craft!

Poor Saavedro, he got pushed over the edge by some guy who separated him from his family, who could blame him, and in the end (depending what ending you chose) when you let him go to find his family he was greatfull. Kinda reminds me of when Gametap was shut down

Let's see... "Character, scheme, and motives": I assume you mean in the villainous sense, so the more cruel and driven, the better.
Should I say spoilers ahead?

Edit: added spoiler for improved aerodynamicity.

I haven't read the books, so my choices are restricted to the in-game villains.

My experience with Myst is also pretty limited, having not read the books nor played Exile;
