According to Leder's story, a long time prior to the events of Mother 3, the world as everyone knew it was destroyed. A group of people had planned an escape from the world. Before the world ended, the White Ship (Japanese: しろいふね White Ship) took the few people that remained from the old world to what would then become the Nowhere Islands. The Nowhere Islands are a special place. Even though the world had ended, this small section of the world would be safe from harm, because it is actually the body of a large dragon. The people on the ship invented new lives for themselves, however they still went by their old names, and shared their wisdom. They decided to change their lives, and make their own lives up. They would follow this life, and forget all about the old world. The people on the Ship stored their memories in the Egg of Light, with Wess and Duster to obtain it should a dangerous situation occur. Leder was chosen to retain these memories as well.
