[At first, the camera is just pointing into a bush. There's a bit of shuffling, a flash of sleeve and a wide-eyed Skiddo pressing up against Harvey's legs. Then he points the camera around the tree they're hiding behind.

This thing is oozing along down the grass, waving tentacles and tongue in the air.]

Please tell me other people are seeing this thing.

If we ever find out who's responsible for this, I say we feed 'em to them. What the's it even moving on land like that?

My kind, yes. There aren't many of us at all, it's a very complicated story that I must confess I don't know all of. But we are known as Immortals, and in the world I came here from, we are ageless and invulnerable and possess great magical energy, moreso than any mortal.

[Ming tends to try and be humble and not mention her royal status, but if anyone so much as hints that Numara isn't the peaceful paradise she believes, all bets are off.]

The people of Numara are normal mortals. The islands were barren, inhospitable, the people living upon them barely surviving. I gave them proper soil, lush vegetation, knowledge of the workings of nature and how to harness them and create. And we've doing such ever since.

I don't have any other plans in mind. It's what I've always done.

Oh, I suppose I'll take holidays now and again, to spend time with my husband, but I really can't imagine doing anything else. And Numara needs me.

They have for a thousand years.

[Ming pauses, thoughtful. It must sound so strange, to those not from her world and familiar with its workings.]

I knew the life I was choosing for myself, when I tied my own energy to the land of Numara and stepped up to protect it. My people are true pacifists, Mr. Finevoice. They wield no weapons and rally no army. My power and immortality keep them safe, and keep the islands vibrant and flourishing. They are like my children, in a way, and I could no more leave my throne than a mother could abandon her children.

Yes and no. I may be quite old, and wise in my areas of knowledge but...

There's much of the world I've never seen or experienced. I've only ever left Numara before once, for a brief and necessary time. I'm sure, in many ways, you have far more experience than I.
