be a villain if it happened for a very corny, clichéd and sappy goody two-shoesy reason. xD
Have you read "His Dark Materials" by Philip Pullman ? Mrs Coulter seems perfect to the children (including Lyra, at the beginning), and they all love her, though she's one of the most evil villains.
Sorry for my poor English and lack of vocabulary.
