Many aeons ago, a substantial meteor impact resulted in the eruption of a hitherto dormant volcano on that mythical isle, causing the almost complete decimation of its inhabitants and ecosystem. However, through circumstances beyond human perception, a solitary lion escaped unscathed. Legend states that the lion rushed into the crater caused by the meteor impact and tunneled inside, ensconcing himself within the topsoil and ground uplifted once the meteor hit. The lion hadn't the slightest sliver of understanding that soil around him was infused with highly radioactive fragments from the meteor, which caused his muscles to lock up, effectively mooring him to the ground – immovable, whilst he was still breathing and aware. Eventually, his surroundings started to collapse upon him, burying him deep within the core of the island.
