The creature says that it caused him agony to commit his crimes, since his heart "was fashioned to be susceptible to love and sympathy"; only the greatness of his misery drove him to vice and hatred. Ironically the creature does not revel in Victor's demise. In many ways he loved his maker. He wanted a relationship with him which would never be.
