"While some telepaths on other worlds it evolved naturally, the majority were created by the Vorlons through centuries of genetic manipulation. They created us so that we can be used by the other worlds as weapons in their war against the Shadows. That is all we are to them: things to be used and thrown away. All that was bad enough. But to find that we would not even be telepaths, would not be hunted down and caged and controlled, if the Vorlons had not interfered with out genetic makeup, made us into what we are."

"Some of the staff have found him wandering the palace late at night. They say he talks to himself, cries, wails, curses, and then falls silent when somebody approaches.

Once, before his aides could bring him back to his room he told a guard to kill him, but he was not himself. Of course he was quite drunk at the time."

A place where others like you could gather safely without fear of persecution."
