I don't know if Commander Cavilo would qualify as outright evil. She
struck me more as sociopathic. To her, other people---whether it was
Randall (the commander of her force before she usurped power), Miles,
Gregor, her own soldiers---were objects to be manipulated for her amusement
I've heard sociopathy described as like being color-blind. Basically, they
just lack empathy to a scale most people can't understand. And not all
sociopaths are serial killers. Far from it. Cavilo could have been a
high-functioning sociopath all her life.
