Sometimes I like to explore different dynamics of Ples Tibenoch’s split personalities; one of my personal favourites being the dysfunctionally authoritative parent-child relationship of two siblings, who both end up feeling limited by the other. The original child being restrained and trapped in perpetual arrested development - and the parent who only exists to keep the self-destructive child safe out of obligation and thus having no time to indulge in their own dreams or future. Neither can reach their full potential in their rigid roles, but neither could exist without the other.
This is the only version in which I subscribe to the theory that Hyde!Ples came first and good!Ples being the secondary/facade.
It also makes good!Ples seems like less of a victim in this twist, as he is actually the one in power (and needing to enforce a “cruel to be kind” sort of tactic) and so their dynamic is mutually abusive by putting Hyde!Ples in the role of the discontent child rather than that of the bully.
TL;DR it’s passion vs. self-preservation
There needs to be more vampire!Ples.
vampire!Ples is an apologetically messy eater…
/makes dumb noises

Friendly reminder that Ples is canonically far-sighted.
