%%* WouldHurtAChild

to:

%%* IneffectualSympatheticVillain

to:

%%* IneffectualSympatheticVillain* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: He's ''so'' dreadfully awful at being a bad guy, it's hard not to pity him, just a little, especially as Valkyrie and Skulduggery use his incompetence for their own plans. Though he does pretty much deserve it.
