Dixie’s and Distortion’s relationship wasn’t always strained. At first, Distortion kept his involvement with Them hidden. She called him Babe. Their love magical.
But then Dixie witnessed him at one of his jobs: killing a witness. He was supposed to take the fall and keep attention away from Them. This new knowledge infected and changed their relationship.
Distortion tried to fix it by introducing her to more of the operation, amongst which the female leader.
It didn’t work. His neglect of her, that she could previous look past due to him being unable to keep his hands to himself around her, was now horrible because she knew what he was doing. But she still loved him and stayed with him, hoping she might be able to get him away from it. It was painful and involved a lot of tears from both and their love suffered. And eventually, it became clear to her, that Distortion was driven by a lust for violence, a lust she couldn’t get out of him.
She was done. All was lost. Recalling the smoking gun, she could no longer look forgive him for his crimes, no longer hope, he would change. He chose lust for violence over his love for Dixie. The love was gone and he lost her. The Leader won, as tragical as it was.
And Dixie’s life lost all fun. She began fighting against Them – and lost.
In their last letter exchange as a couple, Distortion apologised to Dixie and reminded her of how sweet their relationship had been. She knew, he would regret it all. But what good was that now, when they were both shells of their former selves? It was too late. How could Dixie ever trust him again?
