Believe it or not, the Warlord would make an awesome babysitter for Willie. Oh sure, he was once the merciless conqueror of the Homeworlds of the Xxo. But he didn’t set out to rule his own people for the fun of it. He was trying to stop the endless cycle of civil war and blood-fued. You have to take that into account.
Besides, he gave all that up when he became the dishwasher at the Saloon at the Edge of Everywhere. Okay, that is a somewhat shortened version of what happened, but if I give the whole story away, you wouldn’t need to buy my book, would you?
