This didn't turn out quite as I'd hoped, mainly because I had to draw Alexander's face! Erk! Anyway I hope it gets the point across. Genetically bred companion humans like Alexander are destined to love one person, their owner. It is after all what they are bred for. Although Spike is catering for his physical needs, emotinally they are worlds apart here. As Josie illustrated so wonderfully in her latest chapter, without the Suzerain's love, Alexander will find a way to end his life.
