* Maximum power! *

Supreme Commander, later President of the Terran Federation.
Ambitious, cunning, glamorous and thoroughly evil.

Define 'evil'. And for that matter, 'thoroughly'.

In the Federation Space Dictionary & Phrase Book (FSDPCool, under "thoroughly evil": see Servalan...

Your circular referencing cuts no ice with me!

I looked it up in a proper independent dictionary for you:
'evil' means 'profound immorality and wickedness, especially when regarded as a supernatural force'. There's nothing supernatural about Servalan, so that doesn't apply in any way
'Immorality' means 'not conforming to accepted standards of morality' and of course a Supreme Commander cannot be limited by what is 'accepted', otherwise she'd never get anything done
'wicked' can have a variety of meanings, including 'playfully mischievous', as in 'a wicked sense of humour', which of course, Our Glorious Leader demonstrates so delightfully in her dealings with Avon in particular.

You can't quibble with the facts, OSP.

The dictionary reads "especially", which indicates that "evil" can also apply in non-supernatural cases.
But then, I used the characterisation as used by Jacks Pearce herself.
She enjoyed playing the female baddy and entertained us, fans, proudly with her chats about it in panels and in private.
I've met her several times and I can assure you that she wasn't evil in real life.

Thoroughly ruthless is perhaps a better description? Of Servalan, I mean.... Grin

"Nothing supernatural about Servalan"? Oh, I don't know. There's some who say she's the devil in disguise Wink Grin

Who are these people? Defamation of the President is a capital crime....
