Aric the mastermind

Aric is certainly one of the most complex characters in The Beast at the Gate. Indeed, I could write a book solely on her and never grow bored. Although she is complex, she is by no means ambivalent. Make no mistake--Aric is evil, period. Where Nephredom may have had some noble underpinnings, Aric is rotten to her flamboyant core. She is an unredeemable and manipulative creature who delights in the ill-fortune of others and schemes for her gain, and her gain alone. The fact that she is both beautiful and intelligent, only serves to camouflage her deadly ways.
