Will we be able to seperate Drazi faces afte B5LR?

Hi,
I was just wondering..
In B5 I never could tell one Drazi from another.
But now, we will have a main character Drazi.

If B5Lr has a 5-year run, will we be able to tell which Drazi we see when we see him/her under all of the makeup?

Been there, done that

Quite possible. I mean, when I started watching B5 I couldn't really tell the supporting Minbari apart either.

Now we all know that the only way to tell the drazi apart is by the purple and green ribbons they wear while beating the piss out of each other

I'm sure you can also tell one Drazi apart from another by their size... there must be both bigger Drazis and smaller Drazis?

Or not?

Only to your very untrained eyes, Terann.

Kribu, make that "inexperienced eye" in my opinion. I, too, found the features took some time to get used to. I'd guess I'll be able to tell them apart (but won't know their names) pretty quickly. I admit: faces are much easier for me to remember than names!

Re: Will we be able to seperate Drazi faces afte B5LR?

JMS has said it was the heavy Drazi make-up that made the Markab the victims of a 100% fatal, 100% contagious plague instead of the Drazi, because the Drazi would not have been able to show emotions as well through the make-up.

Perhaps the make-up for Tirk will be toned down a little bit. Maybe it won't cover his face as much as it does most Drazi, so that Gus will be able to show his facial expressions through the mask.

I wouldn't be surprised if there were very subtle differences in G'Kar's make-up compared to most Narn. He still looked very Narn, but he was able to express and emote quite well.

In fact, I wonder if that's part of the reason Londo had a higher hairline than many other Centauri, so that Peter could provide more expression through his forehead.

Just a theory.

I noticed that the Minbari also looked kind of expressionless in the pilot episode and maybe the first couple of eps after. Then their make-up seems to have been "toned down" considerably. I'm hoping the same will happen with the Drazi.

And while we are on the subject of alien Rangers, I hope if there is a series someone will slip in a Pak-Mara Ranger. I always liked the idea of the Pak-Mara being the "ones no one wants to pay attention to" and slipping through all sorts of places basically ignored.

From JMS (in the Lurker's Guide)

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, arial">quote:</font><HR>
We'd originally planned to go for a more vague sexuality for Delenn; a male physically and primarily in the voice, on top of the natural female movements one gets from an actress. In post-production, however, we couldn't get the voice to sound as good and male as we'd wanted. In addition, a couple of convention showing of a rough cut saw people responding VERY strongly to her voice as it was, so we finally decided to let it stand and change the one reference to "he" to "she," and that was the end of it.

Delenn was originally going to be a fairly sexually-ambiguous character... a male character, played by a female, with a computer altered voice... but we couldn't make the alteration sound good enough to satisfy us, so we left her a her.
