Poll: Which is the best player created evil character?

I'm just curious as to what you guys would think would be the best character of evil alignment that you (the gamer) have created. My best evil character would have to be my Sorcerer, whom I had use the wand of Cloudkill inside the Copper Coronet and then kill not only everyone but also my NPCs.

Just about any class can make a good evil...it's all about what you do with them. That said, I think assassin is a natural choice. I really enjoyed my lawful evil female monk. She had fun corrupting Anomen.

Yeah, of all the classes, Assassin seems to be the one with "evil" stamped on its forehead, which makes it one of the most fun to play (in my opinion).

I would also have to say that the best evil player character to be would be one of the thief kits (especially assassin). I say this mainly because it gives your character a chance to stand out from amongst your companions. I have a LE Mage and I ended up having an inferiority complex compared to Edwin. Edwin seems to have a whole lot more spells per level then my character! Likewise an evil fighter has to compete for glory and body count with Korgan who is pretty darn good.
If you end up playing a good fighter, mage or thief, you can be pretty sure that your character will be 'top dog' amongst his good aligned companions.

cleric of talos. what other character can you play with a more malicious fanatical devotion. Plus, they get to be quite powerful. It ain't so bad bein' part of the clergy. Plus, it is a lot of fun wiping out the rest of the temple district. Anyone ever tried to take on the radiant heart with keldorn/anomen as an NPC. Mwuh-ha-ha

My best evil character is my Archer Originally I created him good, but when I was in hell at the end of BG I confronted Wraith Sarevok and chose to turn into a slayer because I'd rather get +2 strength than +1 wisdom/charisma, I went halfway through TOB before I realized that the evil option also made me of evil alignment autotmatically... dammit, and I had a 20 rep... Well... that's the most evil character I ever had. I know, I'm a pansy, but I just can't bring myself to betray everything Gorion taught me... except for that one fling with Wraith Sarevok... anyway... I'll be gone trying to get to where I was before I had to restart from hell to keep my good alignment.
