"From you only could I hope for succour, although towards you I felt no sentiment but that of hatred..."   (Chapter XVI)

The creature’s relationship with his maker is paradoxically full of both hatred and dependency. Alone in the world, the creature’s only hope of connection is with his creator. However, the creature despises his own existence and the person who created that existence. This relationship constitutes the main tension of the novel.
