Okay, time for me to play devils advocate here with one of the most recently recognized villains in literature. Bellatrix Lestrange was one of Lord Voldemorts most trusted servants in the popular Harry Potter book series. She was cruel, sadistic and did what Voldemort told her to do and not to do. However, she was one of two female death eaters, Voldemort’s followers. When we are first introduced to Bellatrix we learn her background, she is not a very nice person. But, when it comes down to it she is able to hold her own. She uses her brain when she needs to figure things out. She is not hesitant to call a stop to things when she knows that Voldemort would be unhappy. The only problem with Bellatrix is that everything she does is for a man who does not love her back. In the end, Bellatrix stands up for herself and is not afraid to challenge other people to defend her beliefs.
