Many of the first beings in Foo were given keys forged from the bark of the Oldest Tree on the Island of Alder. The first beings in Foo were the lithens, the siids, the Waves of the Lime Sea, the Palehi, the Eggmen, the Longings and the sycophants. Creatures such as rants, cogs, echoes, whisps, nits, offings, the Omitted, tea birds, rovens and lathar whips all came much later. The First Want was installed to look after the surface of Foo, while the Dearth was placed benath the soil. The Seven Keys were given to the Lithens, the Nit Elders, the Sochemists, the Sycophants, the Waves, the Want and the Eggmen.
