After much thought and head scratching I have reached a decision.
Alvin the Treacherous
Alvin the Treacherous is a recurring villian in the 'How to Train Your Dragon' series by Cressida Cowell. I think there is something always a little bit difficult about coming up with baddies for kid books - you don't want them to be too evil, but then at the same time you don't want then to be so washed down that they are laughable.
Alvin the Treacherous though is WICKED. He has no problems with trying to kill Hiccup and his friends and he would be more than thrilled if he succeeded.
He is always different every time he appears in a book because of the previous 'Kill Hiccup' plan failing and him usually getting stuck in his own trap - it is going to be interesting to see what body part he is missing after the last failure. :)
(As soon as I read this weeks question I starting thinking in general terms like (for example) in romance novels there are always some really evil people - because, hey, the hero and heroine don't deserve their HEA if they don't survive some nastiness. But then as soon as I tried to narrow it down to one my brain drew a blank)
