Is it fair to call Haman's attempted genocide the first attempted genocide? I'd argue that Pharaoh ordering the death of every Hebrew boy was a de-facto attempted genocide, since a race without any males will eventually vanish, if only through dilution. Plus, I seem to recall that Haman's own ancestors were the victims of an attempted genocide by King Saul.

Should Longinus (the Roman who stabbed Jesus on the cross) and Goliath be added to this list? I'm not sure about goliath, as he seems to turn up as heroic in quite a few occurences.

In addition to that, should we add Lilith to the list? Yeah, she's not technically Biblical, but she seems to be one of the de facto progenitors of vampires these days.

She is also technically not a "guy"...

I think there is probably room for an "Other" section - in Five Girls it's Legion.

Longinus is a) not in the Bible (the soldier with the spear is unnamed in the Bible), and b) was never imagined as a bad guy.
