Too ugly to love, Caciope's parents abandoned him. Taken in by a circus, he became an attraction that appealed to people's unhealthy curiosity. But when he turned 21, the World's Ugliest Man fled the circus in search of his worthless parents to take his revenge on them. Chased away by one and all, the “monster” takes refuge with the Sakrohms.
Start shaking infidels! The Sakrohms spread the word of the Creator-of-All-Things and Great Cosmic Entity, Glibon Dashra Sakrh, the old-fashioned way. These missionaries are trying to convince the government that the only way to avoid a war against other stellar peoples is to burn all works of science-fiction as they are a vehicle of anti-alien sentiment.
