Sixes are powerful, driven beings, constantly looking for ways to influence or determine events. They love human sensuality in all its forms, and see their bodies as the highest temple in praise of God that has yet been constructed. They are also deeply manipulative and have a tendency towards physical and emotional cruelty.
“Are they the lucky ones? That’s what you’re thinking, isn’t it? We’re a long way from home. We’ve jumped way beyond the Red Line into uncharted space. Limited supplies. Limited fuel. No allies. And now no hope! Maybe it would have been better for us to have died quickly back on the colonies with our families instead of dying out here slowly in the emptiness of dark space. Where shall we go? What shall we do? “Life here began out there”. Those are the first words of the sacred scrolls. And they were told to us by the Lords of Kobol many countless centuries ago. And they made it perfectly clear that we are not alone in this universe.”
I want the pain. It’s how I learn. I was instrumental in the destruction of humanity, but at the same time I learned, because…because I fell in love…with a human man, and he was mortal and fallible. And he had this incredible pride in himself. He thought he knew everything there was to know. And I loved him, with my whole heart. And then one day, I realized I wouldn’t have him forever. I understood what I’d done. How I betrayed him and humanity. And that pain taught me to understand death. Baltar could die. And I loved him. Baltar’s heart was ephemeral. Baltar’s body was fragile in my hands.
