"Unlike other silkworms, which used their prized silk to build a cocoon out of, Jeremiah was something more. When his fellow brethren tucked themselves into what would be a long and dreamless sleep, Jeremiah began his work in solitude. When his brothers and sisters burst from their silken sleeping vessels to test their new found wings, they were startled by Jeremiah's appearance. His life's work as a larva only to.....become a larva again? They did not understand. His silken garments rivalled even those that were made from the Great Pale TwoLegs that stole the silk of so many to make coverings of their own. He was not a mainstream silkworm. Not one bit."
