In Nathaniel Hawthorne's " The Scarlet Letter", Roger Chillingworth, Hester's hubby, is a bad guy because he turns into a man lacking in human being warmth as a result of his desire to gain revenge against Hester's forbidden paramour: Reverend Dimmesdale. His vindictive desire and malice influences his exterior appearance and makes him pain Reverend Dimmesdale. Roger Chillingworth is a villain because he desires to exact payback against Dimmesdale. When Chillingworth talk to Hester in her prison cellular, he talks to her Dimmesdale, and how he has " wronged" both equally Hester and himself. That's exactly what vows that he "... shall seek out this guy... " and "... shall see him tremble". Chillingworth must think that Dimmesdale is a only person here who has wronged him. He seems hurt and directs his pain, anger, and frustration towars Dimmesdale. As the result, we have a villain whom becomes so consumed by his malice that is no longer a reasonable human being. Roger Chillingworth proves his villainy along with his vengeful nature. During the discussion between Chillingworth and Dimmesdale by the graveyard, Chillingworth says how " ugly weeds" grew out of a serious with no tombstone and this was because the person in this grave must have some " hideous secret" buried with him which he should have confessed. Then simply, he says how Hester Prynne is much less miserable as a result of her scarlet letter upon he breasts which identifies her open sin. The conversation entails secret sin and religion. Chillingworth additional tortures and worsens Dimmesdale's guilt. His guilt is escalating while he grow less strong and more ill. This provides and improves to what Chillingworth stands for: wicked with cold reason and intellect not affected by human being emotion.
