Land of Lots of Legs

Legend speaks of an Earth once protected by Silex, the creature of rock. Created by the Angels of Oborana, Silex would shield Earth and its creatures in their absence. 65 million years ago, two asteroids came to earth. Silex managed to stop the large one, but the smaller one hit close to where he stood.

Silex held up a part of the Earth, sheltering its creatures from the fires that raged beneath. for thousands of years, Silex smiled as he watched the insect world in the palms of his hands.

When the Angels returned, Silex asked his land to be adopted into their world of safety.

The Angels agreed so asked Silex what his realm should be named. Silex replied, “It’s not my realm. It’s theirs, so it should be called, ‘The land of Lots of Legs’”.
