She's far from evil - I mean, she's one of my favourite characters already since she's *not* evil or 'misguided' you also get to see her when she wasn't the antagonist as well even if she were 'evil'. The protagonists (all four of the main characters including her are female) are mostly from a region reflecting South Asia so two of the protagonists are that and one of them is a white chick, then the secondary characters are mostly South Asian too. Thanks for your input!
Oof. Anti-blackness is rampant throughout the world #bleachcreamsinasia. So now more than ever, I would question the choice for a black (or darker skinned south asian) woman as an antagonist in a region where there aren’t many black people to begin with (much less positive representations of them).
I obviously don’t know your entire story or this world that you’ve built. And I am sure your intentions are pure. But I would tread carefully, and make sure not to play into the same old oppressive narratives of black being evil or bad (or only visible as the /other/).
