Victor’s Big Mistake
Victor brought his creation into the world not from a place of love, but a place of pride. His father was against Victor’s interest in alchemy and the natural sciences. His vehement opposition to Victor’s scientific passions is what lead Victor to come up with a way to prove his craft, taking the form of the creation of new life. Victor created the monster purely to prove his father wrong, not to because he wanted to care for a new being.
He initially describes the purpose of creating a new species to have dominance over a being that would look to have as a god (cite).
