    Summary

    Early 2156: According to global news reports at the time, a hundred telepaths in Chiapas, Mexico locked themselves in a church and set it on fire, and committed suicide supposedly in protest of telepath registration. The "Chiapas Incident," as this event came to be called, almost brought about an end to attempts to unify the "Earth Alliance" - a global government with universal laws, including telepath registration.

    Or maybe that's not what happened at all.

    Summary

    In case you missed it: the one where Bester's parents die.

    Summary

    Cadre Prime was the most elite of all cadres in the Corps. Those twenty-five, maybe thirty students each year - out of the whole Corps of millions - were hand-picked for the most prestigious jobs upon reaching adulthood. They became high-level administrators. They became teachers. They became whatever they wanted.

    But they had also survived a system that was, at times, uniquely abusive.

    Part 1 is here.

    Now that I've spent nearly 200k words in Behind the Gloves introducing readers to telepath culture, I begin also to discuss some things that went Wrong.

    No nation is ever perfect. Telepaths are no different - humans are humans, and humans are imperfect beings. Humans fail. This is the lesson Bester takes away from his experiences with abuse in school.

    Summary

    How does telepathy work?

    Well, like the Heinsenberg compensator: "Just fine, thank you."

    Actually... it's complicated.

    But don't tell anyone, OK?

    Before you read this chapter, please read P-ratings for n00bs, latent through P5, and P-ratings for n00bs, P5 through P11 - at least the first part, so you know what I'm talking about.

    Summary

    Natasha Alexander, Lyta's grandmother, has been chosen by Vorlons to save the world - but there's a price to pay: We are fighting to save one another, and some must be sacrificed, if all are to be saved.

    This is the chapter that explains it all. (The overview of the story line about Department Sigma can be found here, with spoilers.)

    Summary

    A Psi Cop disappears on Mars, and reappears a month later in the abandoned metro tunnels under Brasilia - and she's seemingly possessed by evil spirits. No one can catch her, so they call in Bester and his team. They catch the rogue, but that's not the end of the story.

    Canon only mentions these events after the fact, and never properly shows their significance. I both tell the entire story, and show its relevance to later events.

    Gregory Keyes, this is what your scene should have looked like. I fixed it for you. You're welcome.

    Part 1 (the mission) is here. Part 2 (the chase) is here. Part 3 (post-chase) is here.

    Summary

    Talia's grandmother had a rough childhood before she joined the Corps. This is a canon story - I am expanding it, cleaning up the writing and connecting her experiences thematically to the larger story I am telling.

    Summary

    In the years before the Dexter Raid of 2189, rogue telepath violence and chaos seemed to increase month by month, week by week, day by day. Bombings all over the world. Prison breaks. Telepath youth sold into slavery - both by normals and by other telepaths. And kidnappings - oh, so many kidnappings.

    This is the story of thirteen-year-old Remy Ligeau, an autistic telepath boy from rural Canada - his kidnapping by rogue telepath leaders, and the hunt to find him.

    This story is canon. I filled in what they didn't tell you.

    Summary

    The prologue of Behind the Gloves is here - please read!

    The elusive "Department Sigma" is mentioned many times in the canon books, and the results of their work (and mishaps) are mentioned several times in the show (e.g. Dust, and the Ironheart debacle). Indeed, when it comes to "secret projects" in the Corps, it seems they're behind everything. But who was "Department Sigma," and what were they really up to?

    Perhaps surprisingly, they weren't the "evil" outfit the show leads you to believe. Rather, the inspiration for their work came directly from the Vorlons themselves, who took Psi Corps director Kevin Vacit, and his aide Natasha Alexander (Lyta's grandmother) onto their ship - and showed them the long, difficult path necessary for humanity to defeat the Shadows. Telepaths were at the center of the plan.

    Director Johnston assassinated Natasha Alexander.

    Under subterfuge, Department Sigma plowed ahead anyway, knowing nothing less was at stake than humanity itself.
