Weird old alien mechanic from Babylon 5. "Sometimes Zathras talk to walls, but mostly dirt. Dirt is closer. Very sad." Seems to have clones.

Zathras is the oldest living caretaker of the Great Machine at 110 years old. 'Slightly' mad he and his nine brothers (all named Zathras, with phonetic emphasis slightly changed) keep it running. He may be a bit slow, but he can also be quite wise at times.

As a hobby, he is reasonably familiar with temporal mechanics, though its not his favorite task. He is often doing repair jobs and handyman things

Zathras as philosopher

Zathras understand. No Zathras does not understand, but Zathras do. Zathras good at doing, not so good at understanding.

Drall gave Zathras list of things not to say. This was one. No. Not good, not supposed to mention one, or The one, or... ...You never heard that.

Zathras is used to being beast of burden for others. A sad life, and probably a sad death, but at least there is symmetry.

Zathras as a temporal mechanic

Cannot run out of time, there is infinite time. You are finite, Zathras is finite, wrong tool.

Zathras working but have no time, Zathras say go somewhere else. But no one listen to poor Zathras. Go now or be trapped here for ever.

Zathras as a madman

No one listen to Zatharas. Quite mad they say. It's a good thing that Zatharas does not mind, he's even grown to like it. Oh yes.

Sometimes Zathras talk to walls, talk to ceiling...but ground is closer. Ground is used to being walked on.

What more information is there about this most elusive and enigmatic character of Babylon 5?
Zathras cannot say. Saying, I would know. Do not know, so cannot say!
