The stories were written when Lis Morris first heard about C2 and theorized what future editions of Creatures may have. The four stories, A Switch in Time, The Power of the Past, Future's Shadow (these first three known as the Chronology Trilogy) and Our Present Incarnations can all be found at Alex's Creatures.
Cast & Characters
|Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.|
- Annie - A norn who is very curious and likes to draw. She was selected by the Hand to take part in an experiment to see how a norn from her game could live in the Creatures 1 Albia. Unfortunately, this results in her mind decaying until she starts to act like the C1 norns. It's revealed to Chris by the Hand that Annie is something called a test tube norn.
- Chris the Hand Norn - A norn who cares for the welfare of other norns and is in love with Annie. He tries to keep this secret because no norns show any affection toward or have monogamous relationships with other norns. He believes these emotions make him a mutant and thus he will be killed by the hand, and is already somewhat of a social outcast.
- David the Hand - David is the Hand in this story. Some sections of the story are told from outside the Creatures game in the real universe, inside David's attic.
- David the Norn - The son of Annie and Chris. Due to the 'irrevocable data loss' that Annie experienced during the pregnancy, he is mentally a child.
- Christoo - A norn that Annie befriended during her stay in the Albia of years gone by.
- Ynbru - the Leader of the Desert Island.
- Llanyb - an Islander.
- Christopher - Chris's clone in Albia 7. Resents his status as a clone.
