Cruelty attracts cruelty.
Octavian is a genius with a gift for being able to combine the science and magic of Old Valyria into new ideas and devices. Unfortunately, he also possessed a fondness for plagues and a lack of compassion for humanity in general. His experiments were cruel and twisted, and often resulted in the horrible death of his test subjects.
How could Alexander Targaryen resist adding a man like that to his retinue? And how could Octavian resist the depraved things that Alexander asked him to do?
