Matthew J. GRAEBERA Fatal Illusion
The image of the alien in UFO culture has generally been dominated by an entity with a large, bald head. Usually the being is small compared to humans. Often the limbs and torso are described as thinner or more slender, but the more closely universal rule is that such aliens are never fat or obese. Current convention labels all approximations to this stereotypical ufonaut with the term Greys. Ostensibly this is because of the greyish skin tones usually being associated with this body type. In practice, absence of this defining trait does not inhibit use of the label so long as a big bald head appears somewhere in the description.
