Does anyone know how to effectively describe a character from another charcter's perspective. (as if the charcter automatically assumes the other character is evil from their physical appearence)

This is going to have to be a mix of language and juxtaposition. You have to really sell the idea that character[2] fulfills the stereotype of an archetypal evil character, potentially even use a simple sentence such as "this man was clearly evil". If you feel confident you might even drop in some subtle hints at characters 2's true personality through foreshadowing. You then want to position character 2 as the catalyst to change throughout the plot someone that helps the reconciliation of conflict and how character 1's opinion changes of them.
