About Jeffrey Dahmer

Growing up, Dahmer was a socially awkward misfit who, due to his parents' deteriorating marriage, had a volatile temper and a severe case of separation anxiety, best illustrated by Dahmer attempting to physically coerce both Lance Bell and Rodney after he both had decided to go to Dahmer. Dahmer also suffers from self-loathing and at various points delivers demeaning speeches in which he clearly projects all his own problems onto Lance and Rodney.

Dahmer was horrified and disgusted, almost throwing up and could barely look as he dismembered the body, later breaking down crying and drunk and phoning his father Lionel. In the present, however, Dahmer's empathy has been dulled to the point that he shows absolutely no reservations about raping and murdering other men and appears largely impassive while torturing and mutilating one named Khamtay.

Dahmer still shows the occasional flare of humanity; He dropped everything and obliged when his grandmother called to ask him a favor and appeared to like his favorite fish, dismissing Rodney's suggestion that the bettas fight each other for their pleasure while explaining that he was the betta who would remain separate and self-contained because he doesn't want them fighting or killing each other or any of the other fish in the tank.

While Dahmer strangles Rodney towards the end of the film, he seems to just give up midway through and do nothing but stand still and look dazed when Rodney gets up, punches him, and leaves, implying that this is true despite Dahmer's claims to the contrary. His and Rodney's time together had an effect on him, causing him to seemingly spare Rodney.
