"Destroyer": These characters are the bane of all that is good and organized. Chaotic evil characters are motivated by the desire for personal gain and pleasure and does whatever his greed, hatred, and lust for destruction drive him to do. He is hot-tempered, vicious, arbitrarily violent, and unpredictable. They see absolutely nothing wrong with taking whatever they want by whatever means possible. Laws and governments are the tools of weaklings unable to fend for themselves. The strong have the right to take what they want, and the weak are there to be exploited. Bloodthirsty buccaneers and monsters of low intelligence are fine examples of chaotic evil personalities. If he is simply out for whatever he can get, he is ruthless and brutal. Otherwise if he is committed to the spread of evil and chaos, he is even worse.

Thankfully, chaotic evil plans are haphazard, and any groups they join or form are poorly organized. When chaotic evil characters band together, they are not motivated by a desire to cooperate, but rather to oppose powerful enemies. Such a group can be held together only by a strong leader capable of bullying his underlings into obedience. Since leadership is based on raw power, a leader is likely to be replaced at the first sign of weakness by anyone who can take his position away from him by any method.
