I like Davvol! He's so ******* put-upon. Gotta love a villain whose motivation is being tired of his boring job. Actually, I sort of like every Evincar.
Even if Heliod is an antagonist-but-not-a-villain he's probably the most hated, with Konda pulling a close second. Something about the self-righteousness and hypocrisy of white-aligned villains pisses people off more than the honest self-servingness of black-aligned ones.
I think this is because people EXPECT a black aligned character to be self-serving and power hungry. That's normal behavior for Black.
Whether intentional or not a lot of people still see white as the "good" vs Black's "evil" so a white villain seems more like a personal betrayal.
