** In ''Dirge'', the reveal about the [[spoiler: true nature of the Pitar: on the outside, they look like extremely attractive humans with unusual skin and hair colours. In fact, the entire species is so narcissistic that they can't stand the thought of allowing other races to exist, so they intended to wipe them all out. However, they realised that they had a very obvious flaw: they produced children at a much slower rate than the other known races, so if they openly waged war on the other races, they wouldn't be able to recover any lost numbers at the same rate as their enemies. Their solution to this was to attack the innocent human colony of Treetrunk, kill everyone and eviscerate the adult women to steal their reproductive organs, which would be modified and used to help make more Pitar babies at a faster rate than normal. When the other races wage war on them, they're forced to wipe the Pitar out- not because they want to, but because the entire race refused to surrender and just kept fighting, even the children.]]

Even the few rare ones captured alive either mentally shut down/go insane, or commit suicide.]]

** Tonx Ghin Rakossa, Landgrave of Poyolavomaar in ''Mission To Moulokin'', is an insane sadist implied to have murdered his brother for the throne. Obsessed with the capture and abuse of his slave-concubine Teeliam, he launches an invasion of peaceful Moulokin that ends in disaster for his fleet. Abandoned on the open ice of Tran-Ky-Ky by his disgusted surviving troops, he's found by Teeliam, who pays him back in full for years of torture.

** Lord Dominic Estes Rose, a major villain in ''Bloodhype'', is a drug dealer who trades in substances other dealers won't even touch, like the titular bloodhype. Like Challis, he enjoys torture, and responds to news of the escape of a set of captives by crushing some songbirds in a cage. He then attempts to blackmail the [=AAnn=] on Repler by threatening to release his stash of bloodhype in their compound, horribly killing all of them, and manages to provoke the [=AAnn=] commander into declaring him the most disgusting being he's ever seen. His hubris reaches its pinnacle when he attempts to sell humanity out to [[OmnicidalManiac the Vom]] in exchange for his survival, and promptly dies.
