The Great Skaboola
First Appearance: Close Encounters of the Dairy Kind (October 3, 2001)
The Great Skaboola is the leader of the Grey Aliens and supposedly of the same species. Unlike the rest of his kind, he is large and fat, dwarfing the carbon-copy drones in both height and girth. He rarely if ever moves under his own power and instead travels by means of a levitating chair that barely contains him.
The Skaboola controls the drones via some means of telepathy, the exact nature of which is unknown. Thus, the Skaboola is the only member of the Greys who typically expresses independent thought. It should be noted, however, that individual drones can act on their own in the absence of the Skaboola's influence.
The Skaboola is corrupt and greedy, and is easily bribed. His primary weakness is an obsession with cheese, for which he acquired a taste for but could never reproduce. Although he abducted Fooker and Trudy to observe human mating habits, he eventually traded their freedom and a vast quantity of weapons for all the cheese his spaceship could carry.
In the alternate universe of Emperor Nicholas the Puissant, the Emperor subjugated and enslaved the Greys by drugging the Skaboola and using his telepathic influence over the drones to force them to do his bidding.
