He tries to keep their relationship strictly professional, but does admire the commander to a great degree. He hopes that working closely under Justaucorps may get him answers as to the disappearances of his sister and father.
Justaucorps sees great potential in Hot Pants as a soldier and captain for the super soldier branch of Lethocs. He is aware of the kid's wavering loyalty to his organization and suspects that the kid's been snooping around in places he shouldn't. But he senses no ill will out of Hot Pants.
Despite disliking the guy at first, Hot Pants eventually warmed up to him. Full, yet guilty as shit, disclosure, Hot Pants only did so because Duster reminded him of a favorite fictional character from a video game. Regardless he still loves Duster and strives to find medium ground between their disagreements.
Madly in love or just mad, Duster will never tell. His obsession with Hot Pants has its ups and downs, and he loves him all the same despite any shortcomings they may have. He'll follow Hot Pants to the ends of the Earth, even if he has to drag him to the edge.
Hots grew up depending on her for guidance after their father died and mother entered a deep depression. He is mistrusting of her considering that she's gotten them in deep trouble. It's unknown of what he thinks of her beyond mourning because as far as he knows, she's dead.
Before mental reconditioning, Faux cherished her little brother and vowed to protect him growing up. Even if that did get them in a helluvah lot of trouble as children. But since her past self doesn't exist anymore, she's indifferent and prefers to keep away from him for the better.
Hots has some complicated feelings toward his aunt. While he suspects her for being behind the disappearance of his late father, he can't help still referring to her as "auntie" or appreciate some of her gestures.
It's hard to tell how she truly feels about the kid. Considering her track record when it comes to treating others, many think some sort of witchcraft was involved for her to show genuine affection to Hots. Perhaps it has something to do with her late sister-in-law.
