– As a kid, Archibald gets kidnapped by the Nomes and is forced to labor. He learns a lot about mechanics there. When the Nomes start going extinct, Archibald uses this opportunity to escape.
– He returns to the Meadows, but can’t live like he used to. He continues working and urges other Apes to follow his example, arguing that it’s more interesting than pointlessly wasting their lives. Most of them just frown at him, but some start listening.
– Eventually the five Apes leave the Meadows and move to the Violet Country, away from the poppies.
