Excerpts revealing Chaos, another interesting character from Volume 1, Mona Lisa on the Moon, Thirty-Two Thousand Years in the Making.
Chaos was expecting interference from the technically advanced sentient inhabitants of this solar system. They always thought it was easier to divert him from his target when the distance from his objective was the greatest. So he was ready to extend his force field around PlanetKiller at a second’s notice.
Chaos normally didn’t leave the shadow of his battering ram; to do so would tip off the inhabitants that the tumbling boulder in front was not the only problem. (This time it wasn’t that important; he had already tipped his hand because of the earlier interrogation from the sisters.) However, Chaos was so arrogant he didn’t feel the need to change his tactics.
