Do you believe you were born with a predetermined role in society? If so, how do you feel about it?

Born?

They mean hatched, Daffy. //Did you know it's impossible to find letters to spell our names on these things? We'll just have to go by the names he gave us.//

Oh. Silly soft-bodied things -- of course we were. We are here to keep the One from succeeding -- to keep them from defeating us in the last great war. Can you imagine, an upstart race thinking they could defeat us? The only reason they succeeded--

//They didn't defeat us, they just hurt us badly...//

The only reason they hurt us as badly as they did was because they stole machinery from their own future to use against us in the past. They used knowledge of us from their own future against us, so we are here to use what we have learned of that future against them. We know of certain souls who will return to the time of the last great war, and so we are here to bring those souls to our side of the conflict.

They are just mistaken -- they have only been told one side of the story, and the ones who determined what they would be told are the same ones who have manipulated them all along; the ones who ensured that their very genetic makeup would cause them to respond favourably to our enemies and adversely to us.

We are here to educate them -- we are here to teach them that there is far more to this conflict than the Vorlons have allowed them to know. We are here to let them know our side, so they will make an informed decision.

We know he hates being lied to and manipulated; we know he hates to have decisions made for him, so we know he will appreciate our input.

//We also know he is very entertaining.//

\\quiet!\\

And we know that through his friendship with the One, he may be able to sway his opinion. The One trusts the Vorlons far more than he does.

If we are able to sway the One, then we will win the last great war, and all of this will go very differently.

//And if we are not able to sway them with words, there are other ways to bring them to our side...//
