Few things are more fun about this job than creating truly evil, nasty, vile antagonists, and when it comes to mean, nasty and downright evil, Craig Walker from The Stalker is an absolute delight.
A writer by profession, Craig met Rachel, the leading lady, while doing a stint as a staff writer for a regional lifestyle magazine. Rachel considered Craig a mentor, but he had much bigger plans for her, and they went well above and beyond being her mentor. Those plans, however, were suddenly foiled when she accepted a promotion he felt she didn't deserve. Unaware that she had even applied for the position, he reacted with rage, and after a confrontation she ended the friendship. Craig, however, had no intention of letting Rachel go. He began stalking her, and he continued to stalk her long after the magazine went out of business. Craig wants Rachel, and he intends to have her at all costs, whether she wants him or not, and he's finally come up with plan for getting his way with her, once and for all.
Craig was inspired by someone who once stalked one of my friends and made her life miserable for a number of years.
