Another vote from me "off the grid". I voted for the Tisroc. The cold, calculating way he manipulates those around him, even his own son whom he claims to love, to advance his power.

I really enjoyed the White Witch, especially once her character was expanded upon in Magician's Nephew. I loved Tilda Swinton's portrayal as well; it made me appreciate the character even more. I wish Lewis has written on how she returned from the North and conquered Narnia. Or what she did during her exile.

I’m taking some creative license here and I’m going to say Calormen. Lewis doesn’t “flesh out” his villains very much, and I understand his reasons. Evil is evil. But the Calormene culture reminds me so much of the general fallen nature of man. Here are some abbreviated examples manifested through individual characters:

The Tisroc - ready to sacrifice his own son in his greed for power.

Rabadash - his lust drives him to extreme and unwise lengths.

Rishda - willing to put aside his religion for personal gain and then making a measly attempt to earn respect from Tash when it suits his needs.

Lasaraleen - foolish and caught up with parties, reputation, and materialism.
