Write about a character who feels he's in the wrong time or place or universe. (He doesn't need to be in contemporary times of course! Doesn't even need to be in or of our world.)

Has he found a way to fit in? Or appear to fit in? Does he spend all his time working on ways to escape? Does he escape?
