Osiris is really effective as a bad "guy" for one main reason: the accent. I mean no offense to those who those who speak like him/her, but her accent definately makes her character the super-villain.
Let's face it. For us Americans who watch the show, we associate a highly cultured English accent on a villain with arrogance, cunning, and deceit, whether we consciously realize it or not. (Ever see Star Wars where 99.9% of Imperial officers had British accents?)
And the way that Osiris speaks, slowly, methodical, and purposefully, gives me the impression that she knows everything, has everything under control, and it about to give you a serious ass-whooping.
Yeah, Hathor had an accent, too, but she was too much of a seductress to be taken very seriously in my book.
As for creepiness, Sokar definately takes the cake on that one. The redness, the candles, the pale skin and veiny head combo, and especially those nails. EEK!
I have a Vespa and two cats!
