Have you ever read the novel Tangerine, by Edward Bloor? If so, then you are likely familiar with Erik Fisher, a character in Tangerine, and can reasonably agree that he is mischievous, violent, and heartless. Clearly, Erik Fisher could easily be described as mischievous, and perhaps surreptitious. For example, Erik and his reprehensible cohort, Arthur Bauer, were exposed as as the bandits behind the local robbery, when Erik foolishly decided to enshroud the stolen loot in the Fishers’ garage.

I believe that evil is only evil by the way someone perceives it to be. For example, let 's say a man robbed a woman 's purse ; to that guy who stole the purse, it 's probably the only way to get enough money to stay, but to the woman she just lost the money she had earned.
