The Babylon Project

This unnamed Ralgan met with Captain Lochley during the brief seconds she was dead, drawn into the Ralgan soul vessel where they existed.[1] He took on the form of Stephen Franklin, his image being a side-effect of Lochley needing a friendly face and a doctor. He told her about how his people were trapped in an existence of horrifying emptiness, and that half of them had gone insane during their long imprisonment and were willing to do anything, includuing cause their permanent extinction, to escape. He also told her that the Ralgans had not been about to die 10,000 years ago, rather they had begun to evolve into energy beings, but the Soul Hunters only saw their physical bodies dying and trapped them in their still-living, incorporeal form.

His wife was Shanalla, who died a few months before the Soul Hunters came for them. The widower bitterly commented that perhaps this was just as well, as their imprisonment would have been too much for Shanalla to endure.

It is possible that this same Ralgan met the Soul Hunter after he willingly entered the soul vessel, this time taking on the form of Captain Lochley for the same reason he appeared as Franklin to Lochley herself.
