The prologue of Behind the Gloves is here - please read!
Behind the Gloves' main focus is of course on telepaths, though to tell the telepath "story" with completeness, one must also tell other stories that intersect with this central narrative. One such story is the rise - and fall - of Morgan Clark. Behind the Gloves' position is that rather than the straight-up villain he is presented as in canon, he was actually a more nuanced character, a bit like Macbeth.
A very powerful figure in EarthGov, Clark's obsession, after the Earth-Minbari War, with defending humanity from the Minbari at all costs, led him to make a "deal with the devil" (the Shadows). Though his initial motivations were just, the Shadows exploited his fatal flaw (his lust for personal power), convincing him to assassinate Santiago and take over the Presidency - a choice that led Earth down a catastrophic path, and eventually, brought about Clark's own destruction.
We cover this story because many of the victims of his despotic regime were telepaths.
