Little CJ, sometimes affectionately called Little One (or by his fan name Oliver), is a non-human who formerly lived in District 9. He is the offspring of Christopher.

Adorably ugly


Little CJ, as far as we know, was born on Earth. He appears to be too young to have arrived on the mothership in 1982. He is the non-human equivalent of a small child, perhaps five or six years old, with a näive view of the world, and an expanding vocabulary. However, he is much smaller than a human child of the same age. It is possible that non-humans go through a growth spurt during adolescence just as human do. However, it is unknown whether a growth spurt occurs or if they grow steadily into adulthood. He has a strong trust for Wikus, primarily because of his alien arm, a trait his father tried to discourage. Little CJ is also very intelligent, being able to remotely operate the mothership as well as remotely powering up a battle suit for Wikus to use.

CJ: How many moons does our planet have?

Christopher: Seven.

CJ: This planet only has one. I can't wait to see our planet. It's bigger than this one... isn't it?

(Christopher turns off the holographic atlas)

Christopher: Enough.

CJ: We go home now?

Christopher (full of regret): Not home, no. This is where we must go.

(Christopher shows CJ the District 10 Brochure. He points to a tent on the front page)

Christopher: See that tent there? That might be ours.

CJ: I want to go home!

Christopher: We can't go home. Not anymore.
