Can I get some good examples of real Chaotic Evil done right? I'm always interested in seeing how a CE character can be portrayed that doesn't wind up being "lol I stab the guard and take a shit on the ground".

Chaotic Evil =/= no impulse control. You can hate being told what to do and have no value for human life, but still reign yourself in and get along in society for a time at least because you know that's what you need to do. You just won't like it.

As much as I hate to say this, the best way to play a CE character is to "hide" your edginess. Kind of like the Joker. Everything that you do is for selfish reasons - you only help others out when it suits you or directly rewards you. Kill surrendering enemies. Lie, cheat, and steal.

But never do it to your party. The thing about being evil is that other people need to see you do it for you to be truly evil. When you ransom back the princess for double the price after rescuing her, killing the adventurers they send after you, take the gold from the desperate king and then immediately sell her off to an Ork raiding party for a keg of mead, you want the other players around you to want to kill your character because of how much of a dick you are.

One thing I always like to do is play the Honest Crook. Be honest to literally everybody because nobody will believe you. When somebody double crosses you, pull out all of the Evil stops.

"Real" CE is not really viable as a player because its literally the alignment shared by monstrous humanoids, evil extra-planar entities and most non-sentient undead.

LE and NE are viable because everyone's known some scummy asshole that would rip off his own mother or weasely prick that hides behind the rules. They are pieces of shit but fundamentally compatible with society. Selling your heirlooms for hookers and blow is abhorrent but killing your dealer and raping his hoes at gunpoint is not really on the same level.

Being Chaotic Evil implies someone is lacking the mental facilities to realize holding back some what and just being NE or playing the rules to be LE. A "real" CE person would have serious mental disabilities that made them unable to function in society. Vid related is about as far as being Chaotic Evil would actually get you, assuming your fantasy realm is as tolerant as our modern society and you didn't get killed as a preteen for something similair.

CE is just like CG and CN, without the moral compass. A chaotic character is no more likely to jump off a bridge than cross it, and an evil character is no more likely to rape the puppy to death than return it to its owners for the reward. A CE character can be the same as a CN character in all ways, except he'll happily set fire to the orphanage if the big bad is hiding inside. Just like real-life psychopaths, who can easily act normal in public while having the capacity to do downright diabolical shit if push comes to shove.

Jaded old noble who lost his family to a war his country won. The fact everyone is happy while he is sour led him to manipulate his own country and the neighboring country into another conflict. He's not insane, he's not making a deal with demons, he's not preparing a dark ritual, he just wants to see the world burn.

Some dark entities ARE using the chaos he sows to prosper, and he realizes it halfway through his plans. So, he hires the party to stop the dark entities, and only the dark entities, because he wants man to hurt man, and not some spotlight-stealing demons.

In short: A sour, bitter and petty asshole with the chops to make his pettiness grand.

Either they have higher ideals like a desire for brutal anarchy, or they do what they do because it feels good.

Chaotic Evils notably will never care about anyone other than themselves, and sometimes not even themselves.

Not every CE character has to be a homicidal maniac, just like not every LG character has to be a mighty paladin. Every outlook on life comes in various magnitudes and can be expressed on different scales.

Law vs. chaos is about valuing consistency or variability. All else being equal, would you rather keep a tradition or challenge it? That can mean overthrowing a nation or just trying to change your own culture in small ways.

Good vs. evil is about how you feel about other people. Everyone wants good things for themselves, but, all else being equal, if would you like other people to share in it or not? Once again, that can mean killing for sport, or it can just mean taking quiet pleasure in the fact that you have something nice that someone else can't have.

That probably-apocryphal accoubt of Alexander the Great on his deathbed declaring that his empire should go "to the strongest," knowing full well that it would cause endless infighting and tear apart everything he worked his whole life to build.

A little late to the party, but I would propose Kotomine Kirei from Fate/Zero and Fate/Stay Night as the only great Chaotic Evil character I have seen.

He simply takes pleasure in seeing people suffer. He orchestrates elaborate plots in order to see people suffer and for no other reason. He is not stupid, he is cold manipulative and calculating. He goes to great lengths to cover his tracks and keep his desires from destroying his means to sustain his life.

Another good example now that I think about it might be Kira from JJBA part 4.

She is, and I'm not joking, on another level.

She absolutely cannot survive without relying on Jaime or someone who can handle the little people and violence for her. But when it comes to manipulating people like Jaime she is top-tier. It's just that every other top-tier character is also high-tier at something physical or popular, she's maxed out in 'secretly rule Robert's kingdom', which she could do by manipulating basically two men in total, and the situation changed, and she is keeping up okay.

Point being, she was prepared for being a woman in that society and she is about as well prepared for more than that as any woman could have been. If she had a few loyal women fighters she might actually be unstoppable, but since she's a bitch that won't happen.

Yes, I know you like her.

But she isn't that good. She has made monstrous blunders in past, and even in the current (book) storyline, she's still kind of fucking up, and slipping deeper and deeper into paranoid, idiotic madness.

We'll see how she does in the books to come, but she...yeah, not that good.

If Tywin wasn't such a fag about Tyrion, his family would've been truly on top. Instead he just pissed all over him.

>"Jaime," she said, tugging on his ear, "sweetling, I have known you since you were a babe at Joanna's breast. You smile like Gerion and fight like Tyg, and there's some of Kevan in you, else you would not wear that cloak... but Tyrion is Tywin's son, not you. I said so once to your father's face, and he would not speak to me for half a year. Men are such thundering great fools. Even the sort who come along once in a thousand years."

Anyway, that's how I always took it. In the show, Cercei is made to seem much more cagey than she is in the books, though they do keep her as being both loony and so selfish that it poisons all her relationships.

CE Is like really aggressive nihilism. Not only is everything doomed to fall to entropy, but you must help it. Create chaos, destroy orderly systems. Families, governments, minds, anything that stands in defiance of the yawning chasm of inevitable destruction and chaos.

Theirs is an infinite truth. A certain one. They're RIGHT to kill you, because they're the one doing it. The act justifies itself, everything justifies itself. To forbid an act, any act, is as futile as trying to stuff the moon back in to the sky so morning won't come. Though they might try that too, and with enough power, who knows what they might achieve.

Yes and no. While nihilists believe there is no meaning to anything (broadly), they are still wedded to physical sensations and their own emotions.
When nothing has meaning or inherent value, you are free to elect to follow your animal instincts. That might be a value judgement in itself on some level (say, preferring comfort to nausea) but I think we can agree that it's not the same as adopting an ethos.

>> No.57198568

But existence preceeds essence, our emotions don't have any meaning to them beyond a chemical response to environmental stimuli. There is no reason to act on them when you cannot achieve anything by doing so, unrepentant hedonism will leave you empty for you have only created a hollow facsimile in place of meaning. It may appear meaningful to the shallow man but in truth they think so as they cannot accept they will never significantly influence anything.

What about a CE character that likes, or even in a sense, loves, the group he's in?

Or even just one of the group?

I once made an argument that if there were two friends, one LG the other CE, the CE would have a easier time justifying the friendship in the form of a very selfish love or fondness.

"*I* like him. He makes *me* laugh. He is nice to *me*. He is *my* friend. Don't you dare hurt *my* friend. You are not *my* friend, so be careful."

I mean, they would still probably knee-jerk into destructive shit, but if they knew they would lose this thing that they like more than said destructive shit, they would refrain.

CE, being monstrously selfish and destructive, doesn't stop them from forming bonds (however poisonous they may be), or even following the rules if it enables their behavior.

This may sound odd, but I really think I'd have fun making and playing a Chaotic Evil PC and building them up to be the BBEG of our campaign.

I want to make him a wizard who succeeds in gaining the fear and loyalty of his army of cohorts that build for him a base of operations where he can begin plotting his world conquest.

A wizard bent on summoning up the power of gods and devils to mold the world in his own vision, who literally joins the party in a way where his first interaction with them after introductions is a monologue where he tells the other PCs "this world is imperfect."
He won't betray the party, though. Not until he gets from them what he needs to complete the first phase of his ambitious plan. Afterwards, I want him to be powerful enough where I will be forced to forfeit my right to play him as a PC, and will be forced to go back to playing my Neutral Good PC and fight him alongside my companions, now that the wizard has turned into a Chaotic Evil BBEG NPC.

I know it sounds so farfetched, and the DM of our group may or may not go along with this or want this, which is why I haven't even considered the idea until now. But I do think it could have potential of being it's own fun series of quests on its own.

I think this misinterprets nihilism the same way religious cautions against lust or greed is often misinterpreted.

As a nihilist it is not the case that I hate success and love failure. Or hate success or failure or merely am apathetic to success and failure. Rather, I would rephrase the statement as I love success and failure.

Being chaotic means you are not beholden to any laws or order and probably act in spite of law and order. Wildcard bitches!


Being evil means you revel in one or more of the following: Wickedness, depravity, filth, disease, immorality, and hatred.


Any of following are examples of chaotic evil behavior:
Sneezing in people's faces
Stealing from the charity bowl
Poisoning the town well
Being a serial killer
Not using your turn signal
Abusing loved ones
Not cleaning up after one's self
Lying


Chaotic Evil characters in places of Goodness end up jailed, alone, or dead unless they are smart, strong, or charismatic. Retards who play chaotic evil characters like "lol I stab the guard and take a shit on the ground" die quickly because their character isn't smart, strong, or charismatic enough to get away with it. Also, I wanna say that just because a person is chaotic evil, it doesn't mean they are incapable of neutral, good, or even lawful acts, it just means they are less likely to do such things unless motivated.

I can't believe I spent an hour contemplating what it means to be a chaotic evil and only have 200 words typed up.

Wouldn’t you consider the ancestor to be lawful, if only because he WAS the law? Good and evil refer to morality, lawful and evil refer to method. Ancestor was methodical, scheming, did his homework, etc. If he were anyone else, ruining everything the way he did would be pretty goddamn unlawful in that they would be destroying the existing society around them. They’d be walking down the beach kicking over the other kids sandcastles for giggles. Ancestor was just knocking over his own sandcastle because he was bored of it.
