The inhabitants of this island have the appearance of human babies, but speak and reason as adults.
They claim to have been born on another planet, but to have died. Their religion holds that, to avoid damnation, a person must undergo a rite of purification similar to baptism. The inhabitants of the isle claim to be those who died before undergoing this rite, but who had committed no other offence.
As such, they claim to be living in the mildest possible form of damnation.
