    Awsome article but Peter, why did you not expound on the fact that Aaron may have only wanted his child to live because he will grow up to be his fathers child, if not worse.?

    Diana, true. But it does seem that he loved the child . . . even if it was his evilness that he loved. Excellent point, though.

    Aaron is the perfect foil to the other characters in that plot. They are all engaged in dirty work, and they all have their reasons, their rationalizations. the others are full of justifications, but not Aaron. he just wants to hurt people. He KNOWS he’s a villain, and that knowledge gives him great power.
