"Delay is preferable to error." —Thomas Jefferson

Our world, our story
Korea was known for more than 200 years as "The Hermit Kingdom", because it had no relations with any country but China. A hermit is someone who lives in a secluded place and avoids contact with people. There's a sea creature called a hermit crab. It uses the discarded shells of other creatures the way a human hermit may use a cave.
