How is the relationship between Prospero and Ariel introduced in act I, scene 2?

How? Prospero calls out and Ariel appears. The relationship seems a straightforward master-slave or servant relationship. He gives orders, and Ariel follows them. He praises Ariel for this, and uses Ariel as a sounding board (just a bit)
