A bit more than a friend. I've been considering for some time adding another supporting character in the faith to the cartoon. The attraction between Faith and Blackbear happened immediately. I think she deserves having someone strong to fall back on now and then, and the interaction gives me the opportunity to showcase a healthy pre-martial relationship with all it's challenges and joys. Timothy of course will have a problem with this. As of the moment he isn't even aware of what's happened.
