Falling stars aren't an unknown phenomenon in Azan. This one was observed with ordinary curiosity, recorded in the astrological archives, and, initially, left to whoever would find it. It landed not especially far from the capital, in a nearby farm by a river. It did surprisingly little damage, burying itself in a deep, narrow tunnel rather than leaving a large crater. The farmer in charge of the land, Agan, decided to dig the thing up, more out of curiosity than anything else, at which point the meteorite suddenly became much less ordinary. It was a perfect, smooth sphere, as far as Agan could tell anyway, once he'd cleaned off the dirt and scorch marks, it was a disturbingly bloody red. He had already decided to take the thing with him when he next went to the city market, but when it started cracking open, revealing pink, squirming, pulsating flesh beneath its hard outer surface, he put it in his cart and went immediately.
Agan took it to a friend of his, Peri, who was a bit of a collector of oddities, to see if he knew anything about it. He did not, but seeing the thing continue to expand, the red shell pulling apart and being absorbed by the fleshy blob inside, they collectively decided that they should take this to the highest authority they could get the ear of.
That turned out to be a functionary at the palace of the king, Kani, who had the thing put in storage, to be examined by the doctors, veterinarians, and natural philosophers on staff at their next opportunity.
The first one to arrive, a doctor named Ragi, does so about a day and a half later, and found, rather than a seemingly shapeless mass of flesh, something looking eerily akin to a human body encased in a bag of skin, not unlike a newborn trapped in its amniotic sack. Spurred by the sudden analogy, Ragi did her best to try and open up the skin and help whoever had somehow gotten trapped inside out and clean, but the person inside quickly began to struggle when a scalpel was put to the skin, battering it out of Ragi's hand. After that, she let it sit on its own, and warned the others who arrived that it seemed to be responsive to the environment.
They waited for hours more, and most left for the night after a terrifying day of watching the body beneath the skin slowly grow and shift around, the bag tightening taught around the man-ish body inside.
It was the early morning when Ragi (who had stayed the whole night out of worry and fascination) saw the skin burst open and a well-formed, handsome even, man emerge, stark naked and dripping with sweat. Dark eyes and hair, gentle face and tawny skin made him look Azani, and if the farmer Agan had been there he might have thought he was looking at some unknown brother of his.
The man asked her, in halting but understandable Azani, "Could I have some clothes, and a bath?"
