What's strange is that Lavell is described as being Warrior Caste and yet is also of the Third Fane of Chudomo.



Which makes me wonder, Delenn tells Neroon in Legacies that being religious caste by mother takes precidence over having a father who is warrior caste.Could it be that warrior caste are keeping their clans pure by not marrying religious caste women? If so there might not be any religious caste clans.

You're right! I totally forgot that Levell is Warrior Caste. Even more questions!

I think the key reason the JS teddy bear was offensive to Sheridan is the same reason the figure was offensive to Londo, it undermines their position of authority. Much of this episode deals with keeping up appearances right down to the plot against Sheridan. Keeping up appearances would be crucial to people dealing in diplomacy. Something viewed as a toy based on the image or likeness of someone trying to project an image of authority and power would naturally be met with a negative reaction. How can you take a military governor seriously when you are holding the teddy bear version of that military governor?
Well sure. I could see that. But, it doesn't actually look like him at all, and it's not supposed to! It's supposed to look like a teddy bear! It doesn't even have an Earthforce uniform, and it's not labeled as "Captain." It's just a bear in a baseball shirt with his initials. I understand that there are real world reasons for that rather than in-universe ones (as per the Lurker's Guide ), which also explain why the baseball shirt looks suspiciously late 20th century-ish (not that I know anything about the evolution of baseball uniforms!). It doesn't seem nearly as offensive as say, having a collection of masks in there so customers can dress up as other races, because .. yikes!
