The creature did not care for anyone, he only felt malice since the moment he was animated. After the creature tries to help a human from death and is only returned by being shot utters this cry,“ Inflamed by pain, I vowed eternal hatred and vengeance to all mankind,” (Shelley 130). The creature may have tried to help someone but he only does this in the most dire of circumstances and truly only wishes evil upon mankind. After Victor has gone against his promise of creating a companion for the creature, the creature says,“ I may die but first you, my tyrant and tormentor, shall curse the sun that gazes your misery,” (158).

The creature kills Victor’s wife, Elizabeth, after he fails to provide the creature with a female companion. Victor spots the marks of the creature’s hand on her neck and fills with rage. The creature lingers outside the window and Victor observes, “A grin was on the face of the monster; he seemed to jeer, as with his fiendish finger he pointed towards the corpse of my wife” (242).

He completely abandoned him, leaving the monster in predicaments that, in numerous times, threatened his own life. Everyone in the outside world shunned, beat, and ran away from the poorly constructed monster, automatically assuming he was a malicious demon, ravaging for destruction and death.
