What: The Aberration Blog Hop: Finding the Most Aberrant Characters
Where: Sign up here
When: June 6 & 7, 2013
What to do: All you have to do is list your top 5 choices for the most aberrant characters in fiction, television or movies. Also, if you're a writer, you can then include a short paragraph about who you think is the most aberrant character from your own work.
So, without further ado, these are just a few of the characters I can think of off the top of my head that definitely fit the term "aberrant" (and please note that if you've never seen the legal drama The Practice, there is a rather big spoiler in the bullet points below):
- Sylar from Heroes
- the guy is just plain evil, and from what I've seen of the series so far, he's got no hope of any sort of redemption
- Max Guevara from Dark Angel
- she's not evil but she's definitely not natural. And even amongst her own "aberrant" kind, she's special. Love this show!
- Hannibal Lecter from Silence of the Lambs
- this was the first character I thought of when I thought about moral aberration. Definitely one of the creepiest, most memorable characters ever!
- The reavers from Firefly
- these dudes are also plain evil, and plaaaaain gross.
- George Vogelman from The Practice
- OH GOD! I am still not over this. I still remember the shock and horror I felt when the truth was revealed.
