I examined the skull.
It looks vaguely human. But not. The nose and teeth are wrong. There's no hole for the nose; in its place juts a pointed mass of bone. The back of the skull is elongated: if I align the front with my nose, the skull extends five inches behind my head. There are four eye sockets in a row, two in the normal place, two beside them. A fifth eye socket dominates the centre of the forehead.
I'm going to show the skull to Xi and Sergei. I can't tolerate it alone.
