Extraterrestrial Life

In Episode 9, Kyubey reveals himself as an alien from outer space. His precise origins are unknown, but presumably he belongs to a scientifically advanced race that is either immortal or has mastered faster than light travel. QB's species is likely a hive-mind, similar to an ant-colony, such that all members share a collective consciousness and memory.
