        The  Scottish  roots  of  Roxy  Loudrige   inventor  of  the  Gifachrome  technology     Way  up  north  in  the  highlands  of  Scotland,  hidden  deep   down  in  the  glen  of  the  river  Finnay,  once  lay  the   beautiful  old  house  of  the  McGiff  family.  The  estate  was   called  Blue  Cairn,  referring  to  the  strangely  colored  big   rocks  that  set  near  the  gate  to  the  family’s  estate.     Gregor  McGiff,  son  of  Hamish  McGiff  and  his  bonny   wife  Mathilda,  lived  a  happy  life  as  a  young  man  in  the   house  of  his  parents.  Being  gently  born,  and  having   wealthy  parents,  lord  Gregor  had  no  more  duties  than   the  usual  things  young  noblemen  were  supposed  to  do   photo    2:  Remnant  of  the  blue  cairn  at  the   like  for  instance  hunting,  playing  croquet  and  flirting   Blue  Cairn  estate's  entrance   with  young  women  trying  to  find  a  proper  spouse  to   produce  an  heir  for  the  McGiff  family.     Hamish  and  Mathilde  had  been  granted  only  one  child.  They  had  three  children  but  lost  two  of  them   as  babies.  So,  the  responsibility  to  procure  an  heir  to  the  McGiff  estate,  lay  solely  on  the  shoulders  of   young  Gregor.       Gregor's  parents  loved  their  son  to  bits  and  were  inclined  to  spoil  their  only  child  rotten.  Each  time   he  found  a  new  dream  to  his  future,  his  parents  financed  his  infatuation.  Gregor  had  had  many   infatuations,  for  instance  once  he  wanted  to  become  a  famous  poet  and  later  dreamed  of  becoming   an  important  painter.  Both  ended  in  a  total  delusion  due  to  lack  of  talent.       Some  time  later,  Gregor  thought  of  taking  up  science  as  his  new  passion.  Though  missing  the  proper   education,  he  had  thought  of  himself  as  becoming  a   famous  chemist.  Being  aware  of  the  growing   importance  of  explosives  in  then  modern  warfare,   Gregor  set  him  self  as  a  goal  to  invent  the  world's  most   powerful  explosive.  Not  only  would  this  give  him  most   surely  a  proper  place  in  British  history,  most  of  all  it   would  make  him  one  of  the  richest  men  in  the  world.       Hamish  and  Mathilda  McGiff  offered  Gregor  one  of  the   least  used  stables  on  the  estate  as  a  place  where  he   could  have  a  laboratory  build  and  perform  his   experiments.  They  also  gave  him  a  considerable  large   sum  of  money,  to  buy  the  necessary  equipment  and   photo    1:  Gregor  McGiff  used  trees  to  test   his  explosives   chemicals.
