1. Read my response to your comment on my proposal for the killer from Blood Trail.
2. While this happened a while ago, I need you to explain this. Why on earth did you add Alex, out of everyone, to “on & off”? That’s really pushing it. Alex is an abusive, sadistic, and remorseless rapist and murderer. “On & Off” implies redeeming qualities, which has nothing to do with Alex. Just because he was brainwashed against violence doesn’t mean he “sometimes switches to the good side and sometimes to the bad side”, since it wasn’t HIS CHOICE to refrain from villainy. He was in a hypnotized state. During his normal state, he commits crimes as long as he has the chance. So please don’t add the category again. That’s borderline abuse.
2. I don't recall to put him under On & Off, but I'm sorry if this happened. Yes, he didn't deserve to go under On & Off, that's a fact. Though saying that's borderline abuse is quite... exaggerated, you don't find? I was perhaps tired and didn't think twice before adding the category.
“Borderline” is the key word. I meant that it comes dangerously close to abuse since Alex himself is absolutely irredeemable. But if you just added it out of absentmindedness, I can get why. Just be more careful.
Don't misconstrue the whole thing, because it's not a case of "Genocidal villains aren't xenophobic" at all.
It's been a long established rule that both the genocidal and xenophobe categories don't belong on the same pages together because genocidal villains are much more extreme than your typical xenophobes, thus making the inclusion of the xenophobe category on the page of a genocidal villain redundant. The same thing applies to "Murderer" and "Serial Killers" categories.
I admit I was quick to act to what I believe is false. I still believe that Genocidal villains and Xenophobes can go on pair, because Genocidals villains can be motivated by Xenophobia.But rest assured that I won't cause an edit war for such an insignificant issue.
OK, so I read the (I think two) volumes of the manga. Personal distaste for it aside, what makes Oushima stand out? Given the setting of the manga where anyone is able to make a profit from committing horrific murders, the setting feels too dark to have a legitimate example.
Sorry for not answering quickly, I was busy doing many things so I did not notice your message (unfortunately).
In fact, I don't think the Freudien excuse hold up, once she killed the pregnant woman in an atrocious ways, though she has a quite rough backstory. However, I think that I should not have add her to the Pure Evil category, not for the Freudian excuse but because I now think that her Moral Agency is not very clear (as she become very delusional by what she lived).
Having watched the film, she seems competent enough to orchestrate the murders. If anything, while I know about her letting her father die rather than help him, and her relationship with her brother isn't much, what about her mother? She was obviously sorrorwful when she died years ago.
