LEXX: Cultures: The Astral B Heretics

Their greatest achievement was the development of a biogenetic formula that enabled the LEXX to be grown. The LEXX was not the conception of the Divine Order, but an ingenious plan to develop a planet-killing spaceship capable of destroying the cluster and other agents of the Divine Order. The Astral B Heretics were the only known force of opposition to the Divine Order. They fought numerous battles and campaigns of subversion but had lost many of their people.

Unfortunately, Stanley Tweedle, a deputy backup courier for the Heretics was captured and made to surrender the formula to the mercenaries Feppo & Smoor. Stanley became known amongst the Heretics as ‘the Arch Traitor Stanley Tweedle‘ though he believed that he had no choice.

Astral B Heretic Humour: 

Q: What’s the difference between Stanley Tweedle and a computer?

A: You only have to punch information into a computer once.

Eight and a Half years later, their best warrior, Thodin was given a key so that he might steel the LEXX once it was fully grown. Thodin the miraculous with his amazing, exploding body parts and glittery pink skirt, led his men with breasts (it’s a long story) into the LEXX in the first episode, I Worship His Shadow. Unfortunately for Thodin, Kai killed him, and a Cluster Lizard killed the last of his men, but not before passing the bio key to Stanley.

Social tip: If you invite a Heretic to a party DON’T let your girlfriend wear a short, glittery pink skirt and thigh length boots as this is a sign of masculinity.

The Astral B Heretics are all fun and striking people (women glow and men thunder, that sort of thing). A few sprinkled generously, would liven up any party.
