So, due to a smaller miracle, a scrapped concept, a badly timed Eragon review from Nostalgia Critic and the SAO abridged came together and created a good "filler" episode concept and a character in my mind for the story, however, there is a small problem:
The story takes place in GURPS' Banestorm setting, conveniently renamed "Shitstorm". Basically, a remake of Saint George and the Dragon, with a twist, and
Pedobear Slenderman, oh and the dragon is really on the "good side", that's where the problem starts
The dragon, Saphire No-last-name-given (according to the Most Generic Fantasy Names for all Fantasy Races 3.14th edition) is supposed to be on the good side, but her character traits...
She never really excelled at combat, relying on traps, tactics, and manipulated people as ablative meatshields. Once she runs out tricks and safeguards, Saphire goes into an unstoppable crying/sobbing/pleading for life trio, and though she doesn't antagonize humans directly, being busy with amassing knowledge, is very condescending when speaking to/about them, almost always boasting about her (actually existing) intellectual superiority, which is surprisingly absent when talking to someone who could easily kill her (a strangely long list, by the way).
To make things even worse, her goal is to once use the before mentioned knowledge (military tactics, agriculture, economic theories) to rule over, pretty much the entire planet, because she thinks that everyone else is too stupid to do and succeed in it.
An antisocial fuck-up who's cowardly, hypocritical, manipulating, pompous, pathetic and really more of a loose collection of the most hated character defects and the Napoleon complex than anything else.
I mean, how is anyone supposed to like her, it's the type of character that everyone hates, kinda like Umbridge.
How could I at least make the reader "understand" the character, it's not about deeply sympathizing with it, just not wanting to murder it so hard that it reincarnates as an abortion?
