Interviewer: "Sir William, we understand that the Assembly chose you, above all other agents, to defeat that enormous space monster, Chi' Pequel. You were a trash barge pilot before this time, why would they choose you? And how does it fit with your new assignment?"
William: "Why they chose me? That was exactly my question to them, but, what they wanted was really someone to annoy Maurice, that's what I called the monster, enough to make him just move along and quit eating the planet. Annoying happens to be one of my greatest talents. The eighty-nine agents before me, who became eighty-nine dead agents, had tried to just defeat it. But I am known for my annoying abilities. That's the only answer I can come up with."
Interviewer: "And now you have been assigned to watch over this Earthling boy named Mac. Any idea why?"
William: "Not a clue. I have only been told that he is important. And, listen, when the Assembly can put you in a lovely cabin, surrounded by fields of flowers, and maybe give you a pet, and-and this is the kicker-you will never leave that place, never see another soul, you are quickly convinced to do whatever they want. In this case it seems that I am supposed to hangout on Earth and watch over this kid named Mac. His father, as I understand it, is kind of out there, wacko, so, you know, probably a good match for me, but, he seems to be convinced some bird is still in existence that they thought was extinct and wants to take a picture of it. You can't question too much because, after all, they are from the Earth colony. We love them but they are not the shiniest pennies in the fountain."
Interviewer: "Yes, we do love Earth. Why is this man chasing a bird?"
William: "They're supposed to be these huge, enormous birds, terror bird, great name, right, that can do some damage. They thought they were extinct but Mac's dad is convinced it's still around. Big beak thing, hunts, attacks, eats. Messy business. Mac's concerned for his dad, so, I'm going to go check it out. Should be a blast. And, I'm taking my slippers, and the goggles! Couldn't be all bad, right?"
