The bane of our hero’s existence. The villain who appears from nowhere. Well, nowhere, as far as the story is concerned. In the beginning he was almost a Joker like character. But as time progressed, I came up with little details about him that filled in his past. What are those details? I can’t reveal that here, as that will come in the future.
But, what I can tell you is that for Deceit of the Phantom, Nightmare is a character fueled by hatred and disgust for the city and everyone in it. His past isn’t what I would call troubled, but it is lively.
In Deceit of the Phantom, as far as I’m concerned, he is the final villain of the ten year arc and he ultimately wins the fight against Phantom. At least, superficially. The moral victory goes to the citizens. What is Phantom’s victory? His victory is one of final rest.
Nightmare’s name was given to him by the media, but on my end, it’s more of a play on the whole of Phantom’s life. He is the commentary on the fractured existence that he leads. One thing after another happens to our hero, and this man appears at the end to bring him to his long nightmare’s end.
I wish I could say more about this character, but hopefully knowing what you know now, you’ll be enticed to read stories I eventually get around to writing. Sometimes, I wish there was a machine that would just read my mind and put all the thoughts and tales down on paper for me. Having to do the manual labor behind this sucks. lmfao
