Born of a world torn asunder

Post war. The first family to have the gift of a child.
As a result of all the war years working in a bomb factory,
Fanny Hamchild's uterian business was mangled.
Only the handy tinkerings of her husband, Metalorion
(who was in fact Hubert Metal, the anchient god of metalwork)
- it was only his handy tinkerings that restored her insides to a
usable state.
So there it was, not 9 but 14 months after conception (allowing for
smelting and setting of the support strutts) that our little friend
was born.
Panface Hamchild was his name, taking his mothers name to ensure
the anonymity of Hubert.
Panface might one day amount to something, only time would tell.
