  1. From "B", click on the "+" button on the "Relationships" panel. There, the dialog has two drop-down selection lists, and a navigation tree.
  2. Select "Belongs to or Within" from the first drop-down list.
  3. Select "Master/Minion" from the second drop-down list.
  4. Select "A" from the content tree.
  5. Enter any notes you like in the "Enter Description Here" box.
  6. Click OK

This creates the relationship where "B" is the Minion of "A"
  1. Click "+" again.
  2. In the dialog, select "Comprises or Encompasses" in the first drop-down list.
  3. Select "Master/Minion" from the second drop-down list.
  4. Select "C" from the content tree.
  5. Enter any notes you like the "Enter Description Here" box.
  6. Click OK

This creates the relationship where "B" is the Master of "C"

Parent/Child in either direction is contained within the "Family Relationship"; from either one of the two, you can select "Parent of" or "Child of", or "Immediate Ancestor of" or "Offspring of", to create the Parent/Child or Ancestor/Offspring relationship in either direction from one of the participants.

Many other relationships are simpler links between the two.. "Simple Relationship" and "Arbitrary Relationship", for example, do not denote hierarchy intrinsically. You may include notes to that effect, but by their nature they are simply bi-directional links.
