I'd really like to do something of that sort, Amos...and I do imagine such enlightened beings a great deal and I draw inspiration from them...but there's a problem in presenting them here, because they are sacred to me.

I think that many people would show them no respect at all, attack them, ridicule them, and take delight in picking on them endlessly.

And I simply couldn't tolerate it. I will not expose pearls to the assault of swine if I can help it. Therefore I am sparing myself the pain of going through all that by creating more wacky and quirky and troublesome characters...as I don't mind it if people throw stones at them. It doesn't upset me to see a fool like Shane or a rough and tumble character like Chongo or an unassailable fortress of self-satisfied smug superiority like Ms Penelope or William Shatner getting picked on by people. They can take it, and it doesn't hurt me to see them being picked on, because, well, they just might deserve it! ;-)

As for Corridus, he was a cheery little adventurer and all round good fellow, wouldn't you say? Hamsters are pretty straightforward.
