¡Qué buena palabra!

Would this be evil, bad as in 'malicious' , as someone who is truely evil, or more in terms of the bad guy in a story e.g. (a 'fiend' , or more like a 'rogue' for example )

Fiend :–noun 1.Satan; the devil.2.any evil spirit; demon.3.a diabolically cruel or wicked person.4.a person or thing that causes mischief or annoyance: Those children are little fiends.
Rogue–noun 1.a dishonest, knavish person; scoundrel.2.a playfully mischievous person; scamp: The youngest boys are little rogues.

@Bob: "no siempre Bob es malvado, sino sólo a veces" or "Bob no es malvado siempre, sino sólo aveces" would sound better.

"Siempre" can be at the start of a sentence when you want to stress something that actually always happens.
