Nobody knows for sure who is good and who is evil. We all have our theories, of-course, but really their all speculative, especially with all sides saying that they are the good guy. So is Richard good or evil? Is Jacob good or evil? If Jacob is the one who caused Richard not to age, would that be a good deed, or a bad deed? Is it a reward, an assignment, or a punishment? I have to think that it has to be an assignment or a punishment. And does Nemesis even know who Richard is? I'm not so sure.
