His “bond” with Powder is entirely dependent on him projecting his own issues on to her, his own issues with abandonment and betrayal that in actuality have nothing do with her situation. His need for her has nothing to do with her well being. His unresolved issues with abandonment just drives his need to possess her. He needs her by his side and he’ll do anything to keep her there regardless of what it costs her because as with everything else the ends justify the means to him. He’ll murder her family just on the off chance that family might come between them, he’ll lie to sway her decision making in his favor, he’ll feed her paranoia and self loathing to shape her into his specific vision of “perfect”, and he’ll pump her full of horrifically destructive, addictive drugs so she stays breathing. Silco is a tragic character but nothing he does was ever really for anyone but himself.
