What I think makes a good antagonist is a plausible motive. They can't just be bad for no reason. I have a soft spot for villians who could also be viewed as sad or lonely people (that's hard to explain).

But for a personal novel, my villian's actions are a desperate attempt to gain her fathers affection before he passes away. After a lifetime of her father turning down every heartfelt gesture has got to be shattering.
