Maleficent was the fairy guardian of a land known as Moors. Her beautiful black wings were of utmost pride to her, she would soar through the valleys of Moors watching over her land. One day, a human boy named Stephan had entered her jewel chambers. She calmly coaxed him out and let him leave her land without any violence involved. But they grew closer over the years, Stephan and Maleficent were the bestest of friends. One day he just disappeared, Maleficent would spend long days wondering about where he had gone, one day the king of the human land had attacked Moors. Maleficent defeated his army and the king returned to his kingdom, grasping for life. He decreed that whoever would kill Maleficent and bring her wings back to him, would be the next king. Stephan returned to Moors, calling for Maleficent. Even after years of not seeing him, Maleficent fell in love with him all over again, she fell asleep on his lap, that being the gravest mistake she'd over done. Stefan drugged her and sliced off her most prized possession; her wings. He returned to the king with the wings, out of his happiness the king declared Stephan the next king of the land. But when Maleficent awoke, she awoke to her most prized possessions taken from her and swore revenge upon the new human king. The rest of the story surrounded how Maleficent's nature of evil began to take shape and near the end how her heart turned pure again.
The nature of Evil in Maleficent
Maleficent turned evil because the thing that was dearest to her was taken away from her. She was so deeply hurt that she gave up who she was and devoted much of her life to mourning and thoughts of revenge, in essence, her wings contained the happiness and good that was contained within her. When Maleficent found something she loved almost as much as her wings, the good in her began to shine through and she later regained her wings. The nature of evil in this case was caused by the loss of a loved possession.

The Nature of Evil in; Visser
Visser was a good person at heart with strange intentions and an unintended evil welling inside her. She had only intended to protect the coven youth from leaving the coven just like how Mabis had left upon discovering the very tomb that Visser had set out to destroy in part three. Her nature was to do things carelessly and without input from others. She didn't care about anyone except herself, even if she thought she was helping everyone.
The Nature of Evil in; Lilla Blackbird
This evil found in Lilla's heart was a potentially self destructing kind as she had created a recipe of destruction against her own kin. She really thought that if the Baen would win the second war, that her inner darkness and past sins would be erased. But in the end she was only killing off her own and bringing in the golden age of a race that would probably kill her for her crimes in the first war.
