Benjamin Linus, "Lost" (2004): Is he a cold-blooded villain or a visionary with good intentions? It's never quite clear. The enigmatic leader of a group of natives ("the Others") who occupy the island on which Oceanic Flight 815 crashes, Ben (Michael Emerson) is ruthless in pursuit of his mysterious goals (the main one seemingly to protect the island itself). He manipulates and often persecutes the survivors of the crash though later in the series, he becomes their ally. He moves the island and helps several of the survivors escape -- and then return again -- and eventually finds peace as advisor to Hugo (Jorge Garcia). (Mario Perez / ABC)
