— Nelson Azikiwe on Ken
Now a sheperd, he used to be a lecturer at the University of Bath before changing his lifestyle after Step Day.
Ken is described by Nelson as a suntanned and rugged man.
The Long War
In March 2040, Nelson was visiting Ken on his farm, just one step away from the Datum, as he was carrying a ewe on his shoulder to a stepwise England where goats, sheep and Joy, Ken's dog were waiting.
Nelson soon joined him and found himself in a clearing surrounded by a forest of big old trees.
There, after talking about Ken's livestock, Nelson told Ken about his plans to leave the parish in search of the 'Lobsang Project'.
