Does it stink like rotten meat?

As always, the poem is Langston Hughes and Dollhouse is owned by Fox and Joss.

As an aside, I actually liked the way Alpha turned out, overcoming his own impulses and desires to become a better person, but that is not this Alpha.

Does it stink like rotten meat?

Alpha is a curious creature. He would classify himself as a creature if anyone ever asked. Of course, since he rarely leaves anyone alive, no one ever does ask. He is one of kind, a mashed up mess full of pain and rage and fury. He had been a very successful Active, perfect at killing with no remorse. In some ways as an Active he was a psychopath, since he was never in control of his urges and his active mind never really understood that he was wrong. Then he woke up and became aware.

He is not a psychopath anymore. No, now Alpha is a sociopath, in control of his urges until it was time to set the loose on his target. He is aware at all times that there are laws and rules, but he never sees that those laws apply to him. After all those laws were written for humans and he was so much better than just human.

In fact the only thing that Alpha needs to be complete is a worthy adversary, someone to play the game with. Perhaps Caroline will be that playmate, in time. Until then he will keep busy. So many places to go, so many people to kill. A creature’s fun is never done.
