  • A safe pair of hands?

    Head of security (both Garibaldi and Allen)
    the centauri ambasador
    the captain (lochley)

    all alcoholics

    sheridan - mimbari war syndrome

    doctor - a crack head

    marcus, lennier and ivanova - all hopeless emos

    should g'kar and vir have been placed in charge?

    You've got a point, to a point.

    As your implies, Sheridan didn't really suffer from Minbari War Syndrome, that was all propaganda intended to discredit him.

    I don't think Ivanova qualifies as a "hopeless emo" either.

      I think you also have to include junkie for Lochley as well. She was a wild child.

      And don't forget, early on Londo had a gambling problem and Sinclair had a bit of a death wish or real Minbari War Syndrome in the form of needing a purpose after the war.

      Na'Toth clearly had anger issues.

      And remember in Dust To Dust, 3.6, G'Kar became a Dust Head.

        I'd have to say that Byron gets my vote for hopeless emo.

          I'd like to take a moment to defend Londo. As far as being an alcoholic goes, he did drink a lot, but we know it was considered part of a Centauri's duty. We only saw him observably drunk two or three times. We can't be sure how large an impact that amount of drinking had on Centauri physiology. We never saw him truly desperate for a drink.

          In the area of gambling, I would say he had a boredom problem rather than a gambling problem. When he became more busy (shepherding known space into war and all) he stopped going to the casino. It wasn't even a matter of replacing gaming with gambling in real life, since he mostly pursued a more conservative approach to the conflicts, such as not wishing to expand to multiple fronts.
