The tale of the “boy who was good for nothing” is known all over Sarvonia. It provides a mythological account of how humans learned to keep malise (honeybees) in hives, so as to collect a regular harvest of honey. Among scholars of mythology, the tale is famous for the prominent role played by the hiveling, a creature who summons a swarm of insects to form a temporary body for itself. - It is not thought polite to tell this story in the company of nobility, as its morality is suspected of being slyly subversive to the feudal social order.
