Flashbacks soon showed that he would call her this whenever he sexually abused her. The first sign that she was getting herself together was when she finally snapped at him to stop calling her that.

It's only vaguely menacing, though; mainly he's just being condescending about Vimes' cynicism being slightly less absolute than his own. He also addresses Moist von Lipwig as "my dear Mister Lipwig" once, while implying he might throw him in the dungeon, and occasionally calls other people "my dear ____" as well. It goes with the rest of his [[BeardOfEvil send-up]] [[EvilWearsBlack of a certain]] [[RightHandCat stock villain type]] [[ContemplativeBoss thing]].
