How possessive/jealous you think Overlord can be? For Fort Maximus.
I’d love to think not very and it drives Fort Max insane.
Like, he doesn’t care, he pretends to care, sometimes, and that really screws with Max’s head because he thinks /maybe/ he’s endearing himself towards Overlord and /maybe/ he can use that to his advantage to escape or similar. Fort Max simpers and pleads with Overlord; he’s “only his” (Overlord’s) but if that was the case then why does Max /let/ the whole prison use him? Fortress Maximus can only grovel, he can do no right.
He wants it to be only Overlord, it sickens Max but it’s somehow better for him that way.
Overlord will only pretend to care to mess Max up more. If Max died it’d be a pity but no real impact on him. In the greymatter Fort Max is aware of this but ignores it, he has to stay alive, to stay alive he must be important and he wants to believe that he is, in some way,important or precious to Overlord. Overlord must want to keep him. Max will make Overlord want him. It becomes a bit of an obsession to Max.
It’s kinda heart breaking.
