    A villain doesn't have to be purely evil. He should be a multi-dimensional character imo, because that is simply more realistic, and to most, more compelling to read.

    The only advice I have to give to you is that you should give him a backstory, and motives behind his actions. He can be as good of a person as possible, but still have reasons to do what he does to deserve to be classified as a villain; most people do (even if it isn't corrupting people, and much more minor).
