I mean he's the book protagonist, but Jorg is pretty evil too (especially in Prince of Thorns). He is many things, but definitely an evil bastard.   ;D

Umbridge gets my vote. Gah, that petty, bureaucratic evil...

Captain Kennit in the Liveships Traders series. Absolutely evil characters don't feel like real characters to me, so it's hard to see Sauron, for example, as an evil character because he's hardly a character at all—more like a force of nature (which I can still enjoy). Kennit, however, seems very human—and evil.
