The Quifflings began as superevolved hairless beings who grew hair to account for a sudden change in their planets weather. As soon as they discovered the existence of extraterrestrial life, they began infesting other worlds and used their psychic powers to possess members of other species by disguising themselves as a poor hairstyle. Several have known to have landed on Earth, one in particular possessed a famous pop star before being accidently flushed down the toilet. Another, Bolazafl, apparently dedicated his life to making less-than-average-in-quality Youtube videos. Apparently, there is also yet another Quiffling who commands the Chosen Juan and has summoned yet more Qufflings to aid in his devious dealings.
