Quote1 First, let me say that I am not of your earth, but of a parallel earth... similar to yours in many ways. On my world I was not a good man. I did things that now I am ashamed of. I realized the error of my ways, but knew it would be impossible to stay where I was-- --thus I came to your earth to begin my life as a benefactor to mankind. Quote2
