    im confused.


    he knew about caroline and her genetic gift, then why wait so long to become her handler? he didnt become her handler right after she became a doll, thus why wait?


    also why did he become her handler in the first place? to keep an eye on her?


    also what were his intentions? why create a antidote? he created the technology, then destroy it. why would you create the technology then create an antidote for it?


    so he wanted to let the select few who were 'up to his standards' live?


    why save adelle and topher?

    He wanted to wait and see if the special genetic trait found in her spine actually came to fruition.

    He was partially insane and yes it was just a means to keep a closer eye on her.

    To control the use of the technology and limit it to a specific purpose.

    To protect himself from being wiped.

    The wiping technolgy was used against him by Topher and Echo uses the easy suggestibility of his now doll-like state to convince him to blow up the building.

    So that the technology won't be effective against you..

    He grew attached to them; this is confirmed in The Hollow Men where he states "Don't you get it? I brought you here 'cause you're my family. I love you guys."

    The reason that he waited is because she already had a handler I'm guessing, it's not like he could say that he was the founder so let me be her handler!
