In the town of Orn, there lived an old man who had no friends but the bees.  He lived alone surrounded by lots and lots of bees.  They never stung him and happily shared their honey with him.  One day, a junior sorcerer stopped by and told the old man that he must have been transformed from something.  The bee-man began to wonder about this.  The junior sorcerer could not tell him what he used to be so it was up to the bee man to find out.  So, taking some bees and honey, he set off on a journey to find out what he used to be.  Do you think you can figure it out?
