From the very beginning, the nameless youngster showed incredible promise. In fact, had he been raised anywhere but in the cloistered innocence of a convent, humans might have grown suspicious, fearful of the rapid development that made him a beautiful, full-grown male of superlative intelligence at the approximate age of fourteen.
But by the time he was ready to go out on his own, it was already too late for humanity.
