Young Sorrow McLeggin set out to see if any ospreys had taken up residence in the haphazard twig nests he'd built for his school science fair. To his surprise, a beautiful white llama was inhabiting one of the nests. How she got there he'd no idea, but adopt her as his own he did. After all, she was not just any llama, she was the white queen. He was awarded the Rupert T. Harrowsby Prize for Primary School Science Genius in 1904 and went on to first imagine anti-matter, though he kept the dark dream completely to himself. He died in 1954, after a tragic accident in which he impaled his foot with his own walking stick and died of sepsis a fortnight later. His journals were found behind a moldering loaf of bread in his ice box.
