Added DiffLines:

* VillainProtagonist: Both Danny and Peachy could be considered villainous people given that they are con men who are simply out to swindle a race of people who they feel are inferior. Never mind the fact that not only had they planned to steal from them, but they planned several CurbStompBattle's in order to conquer the the various tribes under one banner. Not very nice men.
