During a recent list discussion of the Scarecrow's origin, series writer Christopher Rowley recalled the following:
"I can't remember exactly, was Granna a Terraformed world? ..<clipped>....I think that originally it was a barren rock. The Scarecrow entity was dumped there either as a punishment or simply because it couldn't be turned off. I think the idea was that the Scarecrow thing then became dormant, grew into a cyst that could survive there in the dark forever. Then, much later, humans came and set to making soil and stirring it around."
The Scarecrow could shift to the form of other characters.
