* '''Played For Drama''': Bob is a VisionaryVillain who saw people suffering and was inspired to [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans create a utopia]] because he believes everyone deserves to be happy. At least, he started out that way: nowadays he cannot see the forest for the trees, willing to sacrifice hundreds, even thousands without a second thought for the 'greater good'. His lack of empathy ironically stemmed from a sense of empathy that could be called overdeveloped.
