I’ve not developed villains as much as the main character because so much focus in that direction can confuse the reader, and as others have said here, the best advice is to think like the reader.

If this character is a sub-villain – you you will – your character exposition focus should be even less than your main villain, and somehow tie in the the overall focus of the “evil” you may wish to convey.
