Dalai & Lennie
This is an interesting coupling. On the face of it, Dalai does not like Lennie much. Lennie, however, loves Dalai. Lennie follows Dalai around, hoping for crumbs of affection. If he persists, then he will eventually get Dalai to engage in a flirty session. At the height of flirting, Lennie will regurgitate to Dalai & Dalai (greedily!) takes it. Almost immediately after Dalai has taken Lennie’s regurgitated seed, he will signal the flirting is over & Lennie is relegated back to the sidelines.
Dalai & Lennie appear to have a “fairweather” relationship, dictated by Dalai. Yet, despite Dalai not particularly liking Lennie (unless it suits him at that moment), I think the two of them have a lot in common. When they do the flirty-flirty-flirt dance, they appear very much in tune with each other, mirroring each other’s actions beautifully.
In some respects, Lennie does not endear himself to Dalai because he gets jealous quickly & if Dalai is flirting with Perry, Lennie will try to disrupt them.
