by Micha F. Lindemans

The son of the Itherther and Thamuatz, the first living creatures on the earth. He was a wild and adventurous animal and left his parents. He came upon a village that was built by the first human beings, and they almost caught him. The wise bee told him that it was better for an animal to serve humans because they would provide them with steady meals and protect them from lions.

Achimi, however, was determined to remain independent and control his own fate. He returned to the land where his parents grazed with their new-born daughter. In a fit of rage Achimi expelled his father and mated with his mother and his sister.
