On the day 15.1.71 N.C. Hoborg introduced a group of three beings into the Neverhood. They were a mismatched lot, one looking Neverhoodian, another a tall hoophead, and another something no one could quite place. Hoborg’s children gathered around to see. Who were they?
The first of the three beings, a red-skinned boy in white clothes, chose “Krevel” as his name. It was a good name. Krevel, also known as haematite, was a mineral common on the Neverhood. In this way and more, Krevel made an honest effort to fit into his new homeland. Not many noticed that if he changed into brown clothes and closed his eyes, he would look exactly like Klogg used to. Hoborg and Willie, who did notice, didn’t like to think about it.
Several weeks after they arrived at the Neverhood, Krevel and his two brothers bore witness to their first weasel hunt. This tradition was tolerated by Hoborg, who wasn’t fond of its many dangers, because everybody else simply loved it.
