Defined as a cruelly malicious person who is involved in or devoted to wickedness or crime; scoundrel. A knave, rascal, rapscallion, rogue, scamp.
When I played Dead Rising 3 this past weekend, and came face to face with this crazy psychopath, injecting hallucinogens into people, setting them loose and then running around with a surgical saw blade, grinding into their abdomens for their liver while they were in a frenzy… I can understand why one would be described as a cruelly malicious person who is involved in or devoted to wickedness. But a knave, rascal, rapscallion, rogue, scamp? Not even close.
That sicko is a psycho. I mean, its not just the fact that it’s a freakin zombie apocalypse and he’s collecting living people’s livers instead of saving them, but the depravity in giving them hallucinogens and letting them roam so he can kill them; and he has the audacity to say “You must make use of the opportunities when they present themselves!” That is a despairing atrocity.
