31 Days, 31 Villains: #26, Caliban

On today’s Villain Countdown episode, we cover the menacing yet pitiful character of Caliban from The Tempest. Tomorrow we kick off the top 25 – it just gets more villainous the further we go!

The Villains so far:

#31 – Iachimo, Cymbeline

#30 – Saturninus, Titus Andronicus

#29 – Cloten, Cymbeline

#28, #27 – Chiron and Demetrius, Titus Andronicus
