Akubasimé the Loon of Truth saved Mirakles of the Elastic Tendon from drowning in the Sunless Grotto. For when Queen Desiphae gave birth to her son Mirakles, as well as to a hideous monster known as Smorma, King Hyperenor did his best to kill Smorma at the instant of its birth, but it slipped from his hands and fell into the Grotto. The king was understandably distressed and confused by this entire ordeal, and he picked Mirakles up and threw him into the water after the anemone. The magic creature Akubasimé swam up with the baby clutching its long neck and flew away with Mirakles, depositing him in the care of joyous gypsies in a land far away.
