which is already in progress.....
"I object to that description!" says the alien in a huff, puffing out his chest. "I mean, sure, I DO use a bit too much mousse in my hair" (he runs his hand over his hair, which is standing COMPLETELY on end in a dramatic crest across the top of his head, sideways), "but I am NOT greasy!"
You look askance at the strange man, who you now realise is an alien, although at first you thought he was just some guy with a sideways mohawk and a rather extroverted fashion sense. He is about 5'10" or so, 50-something, rather stout, with a round face, jet black HUGE hair with a grey streak in each side, and is wearing an elegant long black velvet coat with gold epaulets that comes down to the backs of his knees, a brocade vest with several fancy closings under that, a cravat, knee-high black leather boots, and several large jewels. He has a booming, scratchy voice and a strange accent full of rrrolled rrrrrs and lisping "th"s. And he is rather familiar...
"Haven't I seen you on T.V. or something...?" you ask.
" Ambass ador Londo Mollari of the Centauri Republic, pleased to meet you," he says with a big grin that you suppose WAS meant to be friendly, but since in so grinning, he exposed his fang-like sharp canine teeth, it freaked you out instead. "I don't know WHY the Author chose to put me here, but since she felt the current storyline wasn't going anywhere she thought she would bring in one of her favourite characters to spice things up a bit. Oh, and by the way, I am required to read this before we go any further:" (he pulls out a small scroll tied with a red silk ribbon--EVERYTHING has to be fancy with the Centauri!) and reads aloud:
"Babylon 5, Londo Mollari, Centauri, and anything else from that entire universe is a copyright of J. Michael Straczinsky, Babylonian Productions, Warner Bros Inc, etc, and is being used for purposes of personal entertainment only by this author." He rolls up the scroll.
"Well, I'm an Ambassador and I'm also gonna be Emperor someday, so it's possible I CAN actually help you. I mean, I DO have lots of powerful friends. Now, what seems to be the problem?"
"I'm turned into a RAT, you DOPE!" you yell.
"Now, come, that isn't so bad, is it? I mean, why would you want to be a HUMAN, anyway, such a DULL species. Well, not quite as dull as a Minbari, but..." he trails off as he realises you are quite serious. "Okay," says Mollari, "I CAN help you, but it might be dangerous. Some of my powerful friends exact a VERY high price for their favours. Are you sure you really want me to try and help you?"
You ponder this.
