@lilithsaintcrow $SPOUSE does that writing thing you do. From her experience with obstreperous characters, it's not you who's in control. Even if this character doesn't defeat you (and he probably will) any small vestige remaining will capture the hearts and minds of your fanbase and you'll be forced to write a sequel with him as the main protagonist.
