Fisher was "born" when a defective robot triggered the pod right before the entire Ark was destroyed. Fisher was the only biological being to survive.

So Fisher sets off in search of other Arks accompanied by his defective robot protector Click and a friendly baby woolly mammoth that Fisher dubs Protein just in case he needs to eat him later. Out in the world the trio encounters killer giant parrots, swarms of tiny, vicious crocodiles and not so friendly nanotechnology.
