Someone who doesn't think they are a villain, but whose lifestyle, choices, personality, and circumstances have led them to do terrible things that put them at odds with many other players.

Nobody is the villain in their own story.

If I were Danny, I'd be listening to Olenna. She's survived how long?

Seriously. Heck, even when I was reading the books I was like USE YOUR DAMN DRAGONS DANY

She got as far as she did by using her dragons, and then she chickened out and started spinning her wheels.

Master in steal.

More seriously, someone that can dance the 'game' part of the game so as to include staff & different clans. 

But more generally, to second Kyros's point, Zalanthas doesn't really have villains (except maybe sorcerors?) just as it doesn't really have heroes.

Yeah, man. Go for the m91/30 Mosin Nagant. Best rifle ever made, IMO. Ivhevsk armory weapons are supposedly better than the Tula armory ones. you'll know them by the hammer and sickle within a triangle stamped onto the receiver; Tula is a star.

Hooooo boy, I bet that thing is fun. I've only fired a blackpowder rifle on two occasions, at the range. I've never hunted with one. I always feel like a colonial soldier when I see the puff of smoke in front of me :)

I like the SKS but I want something bigger for deer and in case a bear comes bothering my animals. 

I forgot, we have a .50 Hawken black powder.  That'd knock something big on its ass.

A fine balance, being effective without ruining everyone's fun.

Strong or well-connected enough that they can't be easily killed, while also possessing the judgment and restraint to not run around killing anyone mildly opposed to them.

Bayonets are cool, for sure. The Mosins have that foot-long spike bayonet. Turns your rifle into a War Spear. :)

I had one I bought at 16 years old, had a gunsmith drill and tap the receiver and mount a scope to the side (because the bold and breach open UP, not to the side).

Unfortunately, my father sold it out from under me, one year. Long story. I've been meaning to replace it for a while.
They used to go for 90 bucks a rifle, until Cabellas and a few other retailers bought up hundreds of thousands of them some years back. Now, you can get a cheap one for 250, and a mint one for 350. Still very affordable for a sub-MOA rifle.
You can pick up big sardine-tins with ~500 rounds (they have corrosive primers) of ammo for less than 100 bucks, compare that to the price of a .308 round.
Maintenance is easy, but very stiff.

SKS are fine weapons, too.

A renewed topic, but one I think merits an effective re-post of what I've said before.

The best villains are not mustachioed cliches, or shallow, one-dimensional foils of conflict.  The best villains, the villains I love playing and playing around, are complex, real, visceral characters who have had a life path that takes them into conflict with others.  In my opinion:  ubiquitous, all-consuming villainous behavior is boring and fit for a light novel and unworthy of investment.  But when characters have their paths cross and the resolution is through conflict, you have something worth being involved in.

A handlebar moustache (except for handlebars are anachronistic and would never fly).
