The Babylon 5 Project

Vir Cotto

Centauri Republic Ambassadorial Attache to Babylon 5

Background

    Appointed attache for Ambassador Londo Mollari in 2258, apparently through the influence of his family. The role was treated as a joke, and a place to keep Vir occupied.

    Vir became ambassador to Babylon 5 in 2262.

Notes
