The opposite of a Betrayed villain, a traitor is an individual who betrays his or her allies, whether for personal gain or some other factor. Treachery is often considered one of the most evil of traits in a villain due to the fact that a traitor is hard to trust; after all, any character who is ruthless enough to betray friends and allies is more than ruthless enough to be a threat to anyone else.

Traitors are similar to Usurpers, but do not always seek a position of power. Also, traitors can sometimes betray and kill other villains if it suits their purposes or are simply in the mood to do so. While traitors are meant to be the opposite of a betrayed villain, it is possible for a traitor to be betrayed by others.

If asked by anyone for their treason, they will make a snide and opprobrious remark pertaining to that person/party's gullibility.

Please note that Treachery does not constitute a crime, so do not add it to a character's list of crimes.
