Victor’s mother passed away when he was young, and from that moment, he knew he needed to find a way to cure death. Victor attended college and found a way to make his dream reality. After he created the creature is when everything went downhill. The monster was angry at victor and killed all of his loved ones and victor wanted to get revenge and destroy the creature.

These dark thoughts breed into deadly cruelty. As a result of his anger and loneliness, the Creature vows to seek revenge on the person who cursed him with his miserable existence, Victor Frankenstein. The Creature’s first of many victims, Victor’s younger brother, is killed after he insults the Creature by calling him an “ugly wretch… monster” (123). The Creature’s murder of William symbolizes the Creature’s descent to darkness, as his anger externalizes for the first time and he commits an act of violence out of uncontrollable rage. The Creature also realizes that the best way to gain revenge on Victor is to hurt those who Victor love, a twisted revelation stemming from the Creature's own limited experiences with companionship.

Victor makes this point in the twentieth chapter; “They might even hate each other...she also might turn with disgust from him to the superior beauty of man; she might quit him, and he be again alone, exasperated by the fresh provocation of being deserted by one of his own species.” (179) If the female companion regards the creature with distaste, this would cause more anguish for the creature as he would be shunned by his own kind. In turn, this would cause the creature to seek vengeance and may murder more innocent humans. Victor’s concern of the female creature turning away from the male creature is the second reason as to why I believe that Victor was correct in not creating a companion for the
