Brian Crowmeowme V is your typical 17 year old. At least, as typical anyone in the Crowmeowme family can be. He likes hanging out with his best friend, Rick, at the mall, checking out girls. Because his parents travel a lot, he shares an apartment with his sister and her boyfriend. The only things not typical about him are his appetite and his extra-curricular activities. His father, Brian IV, compared his son's appetite to a black hole. No food is safe around him. As for his activities, well, he can thank Great Great Grandpa Brian for that.
When the Thermox attacked, Edenoi Riders were recruited to help fight them. The Thermox would also unleash Riders of their own. Brian and his godson, Willael Cranston, began working on their own Riders. Brian V, or B5 as his family calls him, became Rider X. He and Rick would fight off the Thermox whenever they could. B5 found himself teaming up with his sister Megan's boyfriend, Prince Dex of Edenoi, the new Masked Rider, and Dex's siblings, Lex and Alex.
With the Thermox defeated, things were peaceful. But only for a week. While at a party celebrating Brian Sr and Bob Sr's 36,000th birthday, Willael alerted Rick to a new threat. A group of space pirates sent down a giant orb, containing a monster. This orb shook up the party, literally, causing lights to fall. One of them fell on Tari Crowmeowme, daughter of Tad and Tori, who was getting to know Rick. With the space pirates enslaving many people, including Megan, B5 is ready to become Rider X again to stop them. If he's not grabbing a bite to eat or flirting with a girl.

Megan Crowmeowme is the 19 year old daughter of Brian Crowmeowme IV. She is also the great great great great grandniece of Molly Stewart, the adopted sister of Masked Rider, who was raped and killed by William Wallace Fenwick. Dex never got the chance to tell Molly how he really felt about her, and eventually returned to Edenoi. Megan would grow up, reading Molly's diary.
Megan first met Dex's namesake grandson at Gray Lake Memorial Park. They were both there with the same purpose, to visit Molly's grave. Soon, Dex, following in his grandfather's footsteps as Masked Rider, would save Megan from the invading Thermox. Even though he tried not to reveal his identity, Megan was smart enough to figure it out. He would save her again, this time from a Thermox created vampire. By then, there was a definite attraction between them.
But her feelings for Dex made her a target of the Thermox. One of their Riders, Heart, was sent after her. He decided he wanted her for himself. The Thermox rulership had other plans for her. She was sent back with one mission: to weaken Dex. She was given special lipstick, which would weaken him when they kissed. She was also given a dagger, to deal with Dex's sister, Alex, or anyone else who got in her way. Once Dex was dealt with, she would be returned to Heart. The Star Sentinels got to her first, and made sure her mission failed. Once the lipstick was wiped away from her lips, Dex freed her from Thermox control with a kiss. But one mark of her time with Heart remained. A heart-shaped brand over her belly button. For her own safety, Megan stayed on the Star Carrier, where the Thermox couldn't get to her.
When the Thermox invasion ended, Dex chose to stay on Earth to be with Megan. He moved into the apartment she shared in Crowmeowme Tower with her brother, Brian V. She would introduce him to the rest of her family at Brian Sr and Bob Sr's birthday party. Her father, grandfather, great grandfather and great great grandfather all approved, because he made Megan happy. The party ended early, when a new invasion threatened Gray Lake. A group of space pirates, looking for an undisclosed treasure.
One of the pirates, Plundarr, looking for a distraction, had Megan abducted. Plundarr used a potion of his own creation to make her his obedient slave. This, combined with another pirate abducting his sister, Alex, cased Dex's Rider powers to change, and he became almost uncontrollable. When Megan accompanied Plundarr on a mission to the surface, her cousin, Maski, grabbed her, taking her back to the Star Carrier, where she would be restrained until she can be freed from the effect of Plundarr's potion.

Leo Crowmeowme was born on Mirinoi, a son of Willy and Maya. Sometime before the Thermox Invasion of 2500, he moved to Earth, living in Crowmeowme Tower. He never expected to become a member of the Star Police.
While taking a walk in Gray Lake, Leo wandered into a fight between the Star Police and some space pirates. One of the Star Police, Officer Nessa, noticed Leo had an uncanny resemblance to her late partner, known by the code name Star Lion. Wanting to follow in his parents and grandparents footsteps, as well as getting to know Nessa better, Leo accepted the offer to become the new Star Lion. He met his new comrades, Star Eagle and Star Beetle, after being given a bracelet which functioned like a morpher. Then he was taken to his new vessel, the Lion God.
Upon returning to the surface, one of the Space Pirates, Electron tried to convince Leo that they were the real Star Police, and the ones Leo joined were impostors. Using a device that functioned like a lie detector, Leo knew he had joined the right team, then set about rescuing his great grandniece, Megan, who was enslaved by the pirate Plundarr. While he did not rescue her, he had several encounters with the space pirate, Blaze. Although, Leo could never remember the name. In one of their fights, Blaze told Leo to ask Star Eagle about the history of the pirates and the Star Orbs.

When the evil Tarnished Gold had his reign over the PRWF in 2003 and early 2004, his favorite concubine was Tori, despite her love for Tad. He added her to his harem, making her addicted to his power. As his defeat drew near, Tarnished Gold knew he needed a contingency plan. He impregnated Tori, making her the carrier of his legacy. Tori discovered she was pregnant on the same day she became a Star Guardian. Lord Zedd's son, Zarr, sensing the evil within her unborn child, abducted Tori, transferring her child into a clone, intending to sell the real Tori at auction. When the other Star Guardians saved her, and Zarr himself was threatened, he returned the child to Tori, cursing it to be unforgivably evil. All of the transferring caused the child to come to term in less than nine months. Tori had a son, with hair of gold. Dustin suggested she name him Orion, after a comic book character, born the son of a villain, but raised to be a great hero. She would call him Ryan for short.
Ryan wasn't very old when he was abducted by Tori's clone, Queen Tori, who was unable to have children of her own, and wanted to please her husband, King Tommy with an heir. He spent several months on the Machine Skybase, until he was released, in exchange for Queen Tori being given a new body, capable of producing an heir. Orion was reunited with his real mother, but he was still not a perfect child. When he was three, Tori got news that she was pregnant, but Orion didn't want to be a brother just yet. He used his power, inherited from his father, to wipe the child from existence. Another pregnancy, a few months later, however, he did not end, resulting in the birth of his half-sister, Tabitha.
As he grew into adulthood, Ryan knew Tad was not his real father, and never truly returned the love and affection he was given. Eventually, he would expand this to all Minutiaeians. When he was 21, he stole a time machine Tad's parents had used to travel back from the 26th century. He went back to 2005, and began a plot to bring his father back. His plot also warped time in an area near Angel Grove. He had dinosaurs in his army. Angel Grove surrendered, and he renamed it Tarnished Gold City. But the arrival of two other time travelers, sent by Tori to retrieve him, ended his reign before he could revive his father. Upon returning to 2025, Ryan learned one of his "rescuers" was the boyfriend of the woman he wanted for his Queen, Sydney Drew. When he addicted Syd to his power as is father had done with Tori, her boyfriend, Calumentus, struck, using his weapon, the Multi-Pole, to prevent Orion from fathering children. Tori promised her son that when they returned home, a collar would be placed on him, limiting his powers. He fled, swearing vengeance on Cal, and his cousin, Markanis. Other than a brief attempt at joining the Virus Crime Syndicate, Orion laid low for the next few centuries.
In 2500, he resurfaced, during the Thermox Invasion. He tried to gain favor with the invaders, by providing them with Tad's niece, Lyssy and her new boyfriend, Jason. When Tori tried to stop him, he turned her into a marble statue, and deposited her in the ocean near Australia. The power of the Animarium retrieved and restored Tori, who stayed on the Animarium for her own safety, not just from the Thermox, but from Orion. Believing his mother was no longer around, he turned his attention to Tad and his fellow Minutiaeians. He met Danielle Delgado, spokesperson for an anti-Minutiaeian group, and romanced her. He used his powers to create a child within her, a warrior who would destroy every last "Minee" in Gray Lake. The child was born within a day, and matured to adulthood. Orion named him Tempered Gold, and sent him on his mission. Tempered Gold was defeated by Prince Shiziro, the son of the Thermox Emperor who betrayed his people to help Earth. Eventually, Tori chose to leave the Animarium. She was soon surrounded by Thermox forces, and attacked. Her screams drew Orion's attention. At first, he seemed pleased that his mother was under attack. But then, he felt something he never felt before. Love. He saved Tori, and finally became the good son she always knew he was.
Orion's change for the better led to Danielle shooting him. he was hospitalized, until he was healed by the Deer WildZord. But as he recovered, his father's spirit took over Tad's body. Ryan had to fight both his father's, in a sense, to save Tad. In the end, he banished his father yet again. Orion was captured by the Thermox and cloned, the result being a powerful warrior know as Demon Riser. But Orion's love for his mother was also cloned, and Tori proved to be his downfall. Orion would later help to heal his half-sister Tari, after she was paralyzed by a falling light fixture. Ryan would formally adopt Tad's last name of Crowmeowme, finalizing the adoption process Tad started when Orion was still just a baby.
After 500 years, Ryan was still a good son, and found the one thing he needed to make his life complete. Love. He saved Tea Redstone, a dancer at a sleazy establishment in Domino City. They fell in love, after her first love, an alien named Mysticor, was killed. When Tea's brother, Mickey, was killed by mutants, Ryan knew they were a problem that needed to be dealt with. To combat this menace, Ryan would give the world Hope.
Using the same process he used to create Tempered Gold, Ryan and Tea had a daughter, who they named Hope. Aged to adulthood and possessing her father's powers, Hope was sent to stop the mutants. And stop them she did. Now that he was happy with Tea, Ryan went to visit Cal, something he had done regularly since his reform. He told Cal he had finally found happiness, so Cal used the last of the Multi-Pole's energy to undo what it had done nearly a thousand years earlier. Ryan could father a child now. And after he and Tea married, he did. Tea gave birth to a son, Ryan Jr. he was not aged like his sister, and it is yet to be determined if he has powers like his father.
In Revolution, many who know the 20 year old Orion, and more importantly, know who his father was, fear he may be the one responsible for the power going out. Tori, however, hopes his powers may eventually restore the world to how it once was, if she can appeal to the goodness she knows is within him.

The man now known as Gold Any Ranger was born thousands of years ago in Mesopotamia. When war broke out, he sought shelter in a cave, where a strange golden artifact was kept. Touching this artifact endowed him with great power. He could do almost anything. And he would be unaging. The cost of this power was that no one, save a blood relative or the woman he married could see his unmasked face. Making a full body costume, we set out to end the war. But his actions came at a price. His brother was killed. His brother's son, Tarnoqq, blamed him. Tarnoqq would find the same cave and gain the same powers, using them for evil. The future Gold Any Ranger would trap his nephew, now calling himself Tarnished Gold, in a sarcophagus for centuries.
As he traveled about, doing heroic deeds, he came to know Zordon of Eltar and the Morphicrons, Morphos and Multus. Their shared dedication to justice allied them It was not until 1993 that he would choose a name. When Zordon's first Rangers morphed, he made a golden version of their costume, and simply called himself Gold Alpha Ranger. He would change his looks, to match the Alien Rangers, the Zeo Rangers, the Turbo Rangers and finally, the Space Rangers. He liked this last one more than the others, so he decided to become Gold Astro Ranger. It was in this guise that he would start a new venture, where the Power Rangers, and their foes, would compete in professional wrestling matches. The Power Rangers Wrestling Federation was born, copying heavily from the World Wrestling Federation.
Eventually, after several years as Gold Astro Ranger, his costume started changing, once a day, each time, a new Ranger costume. He changed his name to Gold Any Ranger. By now, however, his life was not as lonely as it had been for the majority of his long existence.
Through the PRWF, he had met Dulcea, the Master Warrior of Phaedos, and fallen in love with her. He used his powers so that she could leave her plateau without aging, and they soon married. In 2000, Dulcea gave birth to a son, who they named Zordon, or Zordy for short.
In 2003, Tarnished Gold was freed, and trapped his uncle as he had been trapped before. He took his Uncle's place, and began running things his way. Including taking women as concubines. Eventually, Gold Any Ranger was freed, and Tarnished Gold was destroyed. Dulcea would soon give birth to a daughter, Dimitria.
In 2020, Tarnished Gold would return to attack his uncle. One of these attacks would leave Dimitria crippled. Gold Any Ranger blamed himself, and shut himself away from all but his family. He wouldn't even appear in public when Zordy married his long time love, Annie Crowmeowme. The birth of his first grandchild, Ashley Dulcea Garson (Garson being the last name Zordy took for himself when he and Annie married) brought some joy, but he still did not go out in public.
By 2500, with more grandchildren, Gold Any Ranger and Dulcea remained in hiding, despite the invading Thermox Imperium. He has yet to meet with his grandnephew, Ryan, but could, now that the son of Tarnished Gold has rejected his father's ways.
In Revolution, GAR and Dulcea live like the Swiss Family Robinson, on an island which he rose from the sea just off the coast of Gray Lake. A wooden ferry boat transports Zordy and Annie over to visit them.

Born late in the 30th century, Cronus was a mutant, although the only sign was his hair color. Born with the gift of chrono-sensativity, which would allow him to sense changes in history, Cronus was always fascinated with time and time travel. When he started school, he was bullied because he was a mutant. One day, a young John Forester helped him out, earning his friendship. But Cronus was sent to a different school soon after, and it would be many years before they saw each other again. As he grew older, society became less and less accepting of mutants. Cronus was unable to get a job, or even a decent place to live. That's when he turned to crime. He planned on stopping after amassing enough money to live comfortably, but he became hooked on the adrenaline rush.
After stealing a small time travel unit, Cronus knew how to make a name for himself. He journeyed to the future, stealing weapons that the authorities in his time, Time Force and the CTI Enforcers, would not be prepared for. Once he had the weapons, he went back into the distant past, hiding these weapons in various caches, safe from intruders, and protected against the rise of the Venjix virus. Cronus soon gained the attention of Ransik, the foremost mutant criminal of the time. He wanted Cronus to join him. Cronus was about to say no, when he saw Ransik's daughter, Nadira. Wanting to get to know her better, he took up Ransik's offer. Cronus and Nadira soon became a couple, setting out to be the Bonnie and Clyde of the year 3000.
But soon, Cronus was arrested and placed in cryo-prison. The same cryo-prison that Ransik and Nadira would take back to the year 2001. One of the first mutants Nadira freed was her beloved Cronus. Together, they would commit a series of robberies, which seemed more geared toward Nadira's selfish ways, than Cronus' adrenaline rush. Clothing stores and jewelry stores were frequent targets for the pair, although most of these robberies drew the attention of a small group of Time Force officers who had followed them back in time, accompanied by a distinguished CTI Enforcer, or by a group of local authorities, the Silver Guardians. Cronus, who was using the alias Chronal, at the time, and Nadira would usually escape. Cronus also had to deal with another mutant, Gluto, who pictured himself as Cronus' rival for Nadira. Thankfully, Nadira saw Gluto as merely annoying.
Another Time Force officer would soon arrive from the year 3000. Although Cronus didn't know it yet, this Brown Ranger was his childhood friend, John Forester. But the one-time friends became bitter enemies, especially when John broke Cronus' arm. Cronus was determined to destroy the Brown Ranger, no matter what. Cronus even tried to send him in an alternate timeline, but ended up being caught in his own trap. The two of them had to work together to make their way back home. The found a reality where mutants were heroes and the Rangers were members of Crime Force, and another where mutants and Rangers worked together. Here, John and Cronus were best of friends, and expectant fathers. As they waited for the device which brought them there to recharge, Cronus relayed the story of his childhood, and the young boy who befriended him. John revealed that was him, and their bitter feud was ended. Cronus began helping Time Force.
But the CTI Enforcer who accompanied Time Force, Bart Cromwmeowme X, did not believe the notorious Cronus had reformed so easily. Cronus had to prove himself, and he knew just the way. Cronus learned that Bart X had loved a young woman, who was murdered before they could get to know each other. Cronus used his time portal to save her, allowing her to become Bart X's fiancee. With Cronus doing what CTI regulations prohibited him from doing himself, Bart X now trusted Cronus as well.
Soon, Nadira began to rethink the outlook she had been raised with, that humans had to be treated as enemies. Cronus helped her realize how wrong her father was, and asked her to marry him. Before she could answer, Ransik destroyed the clock tower where Time Force had been headquartered. When Nadira tried to convince her father that he was wrong, he struck her. Cronus had enough. He took Nadira and left Ransik's forces. Only after Ransik had nearly killed Nadira did he realize how wrong his hatred was.
Upon returning to the years 3000, Cronus and Nadira were given suspended sentences for their actions in helping Time Force. Cronus was given a job with CTI, and he and Nadira married. When Time Force needed Ransik's help fighting Mut-Orgs in 2002, Cronus and Nadira accompanied them. After a great battle, Ransik was cured of his mutations, leaving him apparently a normal human. But this effected John, who had been linked to Ransik's mutant energy. To save his friend's life, Cronus transferred some of his mutant energy to John. At the same time, Nadira told Cronus he was going to be a father.
Their first born child, Johnathan Ransik Cronum was born on July 17, 3002. And to the surprise of his parents, he was completely human, no mutation of any sort. Cronus began training to eventually become a CTI Enforcer. A few years later, Nadira gave birth to their second child, a daughter, who they named Nadia. Cronus' friendship with John remained strong, as shown when John and Jen named Cronus and Nadira as godparents of their twins, John Jr and Alexa. By then Cronus was a Junior Level Enforcer at CTI, reporting directly to Bart X. Though he had never started out to do so, Cronus was changing the way mutants were perceived.
In Ranger League, Craig Ourastatos, Nadia Ransik's boyfriend, was a small time career criminal who had an obsession with time. He was also a former friend of Wesley Collins, secretly the super hero, Ultraman. Upon joining Rex Ransik's crew in Angel Grove, he became the super criminal Cronus, whose motto was "Any Crime, anytime." Outfitted with time based weapons, most of which were made from the meteor alloy which was Ultraman's weakness, Cronus had his first run-in with Ultraman when he was sent to kidnap reporter Jen Scotts, who Ransik intended to marry. But he also encountered Ultraman's imperfect clone, Omega, who turned against his creator, Ransik, because of his own love for Jen. With Ultraman and Omega fighting over Jen, Cronus returned to Ransik Tower, to await his next encounter with Ultraman.

In the Earth year 1924, a Minutiaeian explorato vessel, commanded by Colta Micron Morphicron, the future Bart Crowmeowme, visited the advanced planet of Centrino Prime. One member of the crew, Magnos Mechtoron, had a brief relationship with a native woman named Medicia. The explorato vessel left before Medicia learned she was pregnant, with Magnos' child. In 1925, she gave birth to a son, who she named Calumentus. Because of his unique heritage, Cal was born with technopathic powers, the ability to control technology with his mind. When he was a young boy, Cal lost control of his powers, causing an accident that resulted in a fatality. The Techno Authority, the law enforcement body in the Centrino system, knew Cal was not to blame, but that his powers could go beyond his control again. He was given a special suit to control his powers. Cal would never take it off, afraid he might cause another accident. When Cal was 75 Bart wrote a book, published everywhere, except Earth, relating his adventures, as a Colta Explorato and as a Ranger. Cal would read this book many times, and when his mother told him his father was Minutiaeian, he hoped that his hero, Micron would be his father. Cal would soon join the Techno Authority, alongside his cousin, Arienna.
Cal's powers made him a valuable addition to the Authority, and he would apprehend many criminals. He mastered the use of the Techno Authority's greatest tool, the Multi-Pole, which could serve as a weapon, or as a containment device, trapping the guilty on disks. Sadly, his mother did not live to see him achieve the honored rank of TechElite.
As a TechElite, Cal was given the standard armor associated with that rank, activated by tapping his badge and saying "TechElite". Cal continued to rack up the achievements, apprehending numerous criminals, including an anarchist named Driox, who had sought to conquer all of the Centrinan system. Because of his accomplishments, Cal was chosen to go to Earth, as part of an Officer Exchange program. He would be assigned to Space Patrol Delta. But he would not be going alone. He was given two robotic companions.
SAGE was his Sidekick-Analyzer-Guide-Educator, programmed with a vast array of knowledge about Earth, which Cal considered primitive. Squawk was SAGE's scout unit. The three of them were given an advanced prototype Omniform, Reconfigurable and Battle-ready, which Cal called the ORB, to use for transport and living quarters. They arrived on Earth shortly before Emperor Gruumm, and the Troobian Empire. Because of the different visual spectrums between Earth's sun and Centrino Prime's sun, Cal had to wear special glasses on Earth, or everything would appear blue to him.
As he worked with SPD's B-Squad, Cal became attracted to Cadet Sydney Drew, but hid his feelings. Cal was not the only newcomer there. A Minutiaeian, Markanis Magmonic, an old friend of Commander Anubis Cruger's, was brought in to help the cadets. Markanis became Cal's confidant, and Cal told him of his feelings for Syd. Through a misunderstanding, Syd thought Mark was in love with her, and kissed him. Cal, through Squawk, saw the kiss, and believed Mark loved Syd himself. The two patched up their differences soon enough.
Driox soon came to Earth, looking to get revenge on Cal. Cal remained in the ORB, waiting to strike. But Driox struck first, severely injuring Mark. Only when Syd was threatened did Cal take action. He blasted Driox, but not enough to destroy him. Bart arrived at SPD, to give Mark a blood transfusion. But he also had news for Cal, who he had met earlier. He had found out who Cal's father was. He also informed him that Magnos had a cousin who married into the Magmonic Clan. Cal and Mark were eighth cousins, close relatives by both Minutiaeian and Centrinan standards.
Cal used his Recon Mode to spy on Driox's minions. But Driox had determined he could use Syd to get to Cal. His minions attacked her. Cal could not hide his feelings, and attacked to protect her. But Syd was taken by Driox's Lackey. Cal was determined to save her, without SPD's help. But Bridge convinced him otherwise. With Bart providing transportation, Cal and B-Squad rescued Syd, before Driox was finally contained. Cal and Syd soon began dating.
Cal and Mark were contacted by Tori, to retrieve her time traveling son, Orion. Using 26th century technology, they tracked him to 2005, where he was attempting to conquer the world and revive his father, Tarnished Gold. Orion and Cal had something in common; Syd. Orion was obsessed with her, and desired her as his Queen. Cal and Mark tried to contain him, but he switched places with Cal, thus Cal was contained. Orion finally surrendered, if he was allowed to meet Syd. Despite Cal's objections, the meeting took place, with Cal and Sam the Omega Ranger in the room with them. Orion had a plan though. He got Syd angry enough to slap him, and she did, even though Cal tried to stop her. That was enough for Orion to take control of her. Mark came in to help Cal, and Orion made him angry as well. He used Z, who Mark was in love with, as a shield, even draining her of her life force. But while Mark distracted him, Cal struck. He adjusted the Multi-Pole, and struck Orion between the legs. This caused Orion intense pain, and left him unable of fathering children. He escaped before Cal could forcibly rehabilitate him.
Cal's control suit was damaged in battle, but he did not have time to go back to Centrino Prime for a new one. But then his badge was severely damaged. He had no choice but to return home. With B-Squad going to planet Zentor for special training, Cal went home, knowing Syd would be too busy to miss him. He was given a new badge with some upgrades. He was also told he had enough control over his technopathic powers now that he no longer needed the control suit. As the ORB was ready to depart for Earth, Cal gained two more traveling companions. His cousin, Angel, transferring to Earth, and a new robot, Tracker. SPD contacted Cal, informing him the Rangers needed transport back from Zentor. Cal detoured the ORB to pick them up, reuniting with Syd.
The first of Cal's new upgrades was Tactical Elite mode. Similar to the new SWAT mode the Rangers had been training to use, Cal's armor was more heavily armored. Now equipped with an energy shield, shoulder and wrist mounted blasters, a jet pack and a vision piece linked to Tracker, and wielding the TecTac Rifle, Cal helped the Rangers retrieve stolen equipment, and freeing the Commander, Mark and two other Rangers.
The second upgrade was Super Elite mode. This was equivalent to a Battlizer. Equipped with a turbine blaster and an energy katana, this was Cal's most powerful form. But even it wasn't strong enough to save Cal from Gruumm.
For Christmas, Syd wanted to give Cal a special present. Not able to think of anything else, she and Cal slept together for the first, and as it would turn out, only time. A few days later, Cal and the Rangers were captured by Gruumm. Cal threatened Gruumm. Gruumm decided the best way to make Cal suffer was by targeting Syd. He fired a blast at her, that would have been fatal. Cal took the blast, saving Syd. Thanks to his Minutiaeian/Centrinan heritage, he wasn't killed. He was left comatose. The Rangers defeated Gruumm, and a few weeks later, Syd learned she was pregnant... with Cal's baby. After a run in with Dracula, which saw Syd temporarily becoming his vampire Queen, Syd took a leave of absence from SPD. After giving birth to a son, who she named Sal, she returned to active duty.
After three years, Cal came out of his coma. Angel, now married to Barty Crowmeowme, was nearby when he awoke. But Syd was otherwise occupied. Within the year of her return, she and Bridge had fallen in love and married, and she was now expecting their first child, a boy, who they named after Cal. Cal would meet his son soon enough, And would spend a lot of time with him. And since the ORB was damaged in the final battle with A-Squad, Cal was stuck on Earth. Cal would still help SPD, including in a battle with the Virus Crime Syndicate, which saw Squawk destroyed. To compensate Cal for this loss, SPD made Cal R.I.C.'s custodian.
By 2500, Cal had become something of a recluse. He rarely left the ORB, and only Angel and Sal would be allowed to visit him. The only times he and R.I.C. would leave the ORB would be to visit Syd's grave. But the Thermox invasion changed that. Orion resurfaced, still eager for revenge against Cal. For Cal's own safety, he and the ORB were taken to the Animarium, where Orion couldn't find him. But Orion soon reformed, and gave up his quest for vengeance. After the invasion end, Cal and R.I.C. went to visit Syd's grave. A brunette young woman was also there. She was Syd and Bridge's descendant, Syd Carson. She bore a strong resemblance to her ancestor, and had read everything Syd wrote about Cal. The two started dating. Sal returned home from his travels, only to be taken prisoner by a female space pirate named Watera. Cal is unaware of his son's location. Sal, thanks to his mother's time as a vampire, has incredible agility, semi-superhuman strength, and can grow fangs, like a vampire. He has no hunger for blood or the traditional weaknesses of a vampire.
Over the next 500 years, Cal and Orion became friends. Cal revealed that he could undo what he had done to Orion centuries earlier, but Orion declined, saying he wanted to wait until he was happy. After Orion met and fell in love with Tea Redstone, he realized he was ready. He went out to the ORB, and told Cal he was finally happy. Cal used the last of the Multi-Pole's energy to allow Orion to father children.
Cal's cousin, Arienna, was born with a rare disease, that left her legs weakened. To compensate for this, she was given cybernetic wings. This led to her being nicknamed Angel. When she reached maturity, she joined the Techno Authority, and convinced Cal to join as well. They worked as partners, until Cal was sent to Earth. For Cal's 100th birthday, she came to visit him. While there, she met Barty Crowmeowme, and the two of them both felt a spark. Angel would later transfer to Earth to be closer to Barty. While Cal was comatose, she and Barty got engaged. They waited until he was awake to marry, and now are the parents of quadruplets. Even in 2500, Angel remains close to her cousin, Cal.

Detrola was born in the 8th Century AD, part of a long line of sorcerers, descended from the legendary Merlin himself. His father's name was Merlin, as was his older brother's. As an apprentice, he met a squire named Lykos, who would become his closest friend. As he became a more skilled sorcerer, he and his master fought many evils, including a vampire, who Detrola was shocked to discover was his own brother. After he became a master sorcerer, Detrola was in love with Lady Millicent, the niece of the king. Her father was a cruel Baron who hated sorcerers. Detrola never even got a chance to talk to her, as war broke out and she was abducted.
On that same day, which was also the day Lykos was knighted, Detrola found a magical gem. Unfortunately, it was cursed. The gem would change color from white to black. When it was white, whoever possessed it would be the spirit of kindness. When it was black, however, the owner would become selfish, almost evil. Detrola found this out the hard way, when he went to rescue Millicent. The gem turned black, and when he found her, he asked for a kiss. When Millicent refused, he cursed her, taking away her youth and beauty. When the gem changed to white, a regretful Detrola told Lykos of his actions. The next morning, Detrola left to seek out a powerful wizard, who could break the gem's curse. He never found him. While his gem was black, Detrola came upon a group of lovely young sorceresses. When they refused his advances, he tried to seduce one of them, whose name was Niella. The sorceresses cast two more curses on him. The first was that all who knew him, including Detrola himself, would forget his name. Even a scroll, which he kept as a journal, had blank spots where his name was. The second curse was that, when his gem would turn gray, he would turn to stone. They did not tell him what would break either curse however. After meeting twin brothers (Morphos and Multus Morphicron) and relaying his tale to them, his gem turned gray that night, and Detrola was left a statue.
For eleven centuries, the statue remained, in the forest near Briarwood. Before she met Lianbow, a young Udonna would try to break the spell every day, never succeeding. Shortly after the sealing spell was broken, freeing the monsters of the underworld. Clare, while out gathering ingredients, found herself being chased by a mystically controlled Kevin. In her haste to get back to Rootcore, she touched the statue. The stone shell cracked away, freeing the cursed sorcerer. His gem fell to the ground. Not remembering his own name, the sorcerer joined with the Mystic Force. he was falling in love with his beautiful young rescuer, but kept his feelings hidden.
Soon after that curse was lifted, the sorcerer went into the forest, to investigate stories of a cursed knight. Man by day, and wolf by night. He would find the wolf, and discovered it was his old friend, Lykos, kept alive by a curse of his own. Reunited after centuries, the sorcerer cast a spell on Lykos' armor, so it would appear as modern clothes, should he journey into Briarwood. He told Lykos of what had happened to him, since they last saw each other, and of Clare's beauty. While Vida was a vampire, thanks to Necrolai, he finally told Clare of his feelings for her. She did not return those feelings immediately.
Soon, Udonna told the Rangers and the sorcerer of her sister, Niella the Gatekeeper. She was a descendant of the one who had cursed him centuries earlier. Udonna also mentioned Clare was heir to her mother's legacy. And that made her a target for evil. She went to fight the forces of Morticon. The sorcerer and Lykos followed her, but he was helpless to save her when she was taken by Koragg. With the help of Nick, the sorcerer searched for Clare. They did find her, eventually. And after Clare fulfilled her destiny, and sent the gate back to the underworld, she was separated from the others. When she finally found the sorcerer, she surprised him, with a kiss. Their courtship began.
Although Morticon was defeated, a new evil, Imperious, took his place. In his previous life, as Calindor, he had been in love with Niella, even though she did not return those feelings. Now, he would force Clare to love him, by whatever means it took. As Imperious's forces tried to abduct her, Clare finally declared her love for the sorcerer. This broke his remaining curse. Detrola recalled his name, and with it, his full magical abilities. At the same time, Lykos was freed from his own curse.
Detrola and Clare grew even closer. When Udonna left to find her missing husband Lianbow, Clare and Detrola secretly followed her. They tried to hide, but Udonna eventually discovered them. Lykos soon joined them, when an old foe of Detrola's reappeared. Detrola faked a spell to summon Lykos, unaware Daggeron had sent him to help out. The four of them traveled together, until Hekatoid, one of the Ten Terrors, kidnapped Udonna. Detrola, Clare and Lykos found themselves teaming up with the children of Necrolai, Leelee and Proteus. Proteus had been interested in taking Clare for himself, but Lykos was ready. A skilled woodcarver, Detrola had a stake ready to keep him at bay. With the troblin, Phineas, working as a third party, the two groups worked together, proving that Leelee and Proteus were not as evil as their mother. With Udonna safe, they returned to Rootcore. Detrola began to consider asking Clare to marry him.
Before Detrola got that chance, however, The Master was freed. Lianbow, Daggeron and Lykos went to help the Mystic Mother, only to be ambushed, and killed, by the Master. Clare was made a full sorceress by the Mystic Mother and Detrola helped the Rangers fight off the Master. Necrolai was able to revive Lianbow and Daggeron, but not Lykos, as he was not a sorcerer. Despite mourning the loss of his friend, Detrola moved on with his life, and asked Clare to marry him. She said yes, and they were married in a ceremony performed by Mystic Mother herself.
Before long, Clare and Detrola learned they were to be parents. But his cursed gem was found. Detrola tried to destroy it, but unleashed a demon from within. He cursed Detrola, never to die until the last of his loved ones had passed on. This would include Clare, their children and the dragon Fire Heart, who he and Clare had raised since He was still an egg. Clare would eventually give birth to twins, a boy and a girl, who they named Lykos and Niella, after his closest friend and her mother. Another son, Merlin, would be born September 11, 2012.
The twins would grow up to join SPD, as members of C-Squad. Detrola, Clare and Merlin would go to visit them from time to time. But as the years passed, Detrola would grow older, and watch his family die, while he would just keep aging and living. As of 2500, he was still reported to be alive and living in Rootcore.

Proteus is the first-born child of Necrolai, Queen of the Vampires. His father was the most feared shape-shifter in the underworld, and Proteus took after his father. When his sister Leelee was born, Proteus made it his duty to look out for her. Eventually, he would travel the world. While in Transylvania, he encountered a gypsy, who told him he needed to protect his sister at all costs. He returned to Briarwood immediately. Leelee was glad to see her brother again. Now reunited with his mother, he became an invaluable weapon in the battle to defeat the Power Rangers. With his sister spending a lot of time at the Rock-Porium, even before she started working there, Proteus needed a less conspicuous form to allow him to stay close to her.
Appearing as a normal human, he took the name Peter Pimvare, and was never too far from his sister, unless he was on a mission for Imperious. One mission had him retrieving the apprentice sorceress Clare, who Imperious wished to make his Queen. But Proteus was taken by her beauty. Once Imperious was defeated, he thought nothing would stop him from taking her. He didn't count on the resourcefulness of her beloved, the sorcerer Detrola.
Seeing how the Rangers resisted in a seemingly hopeless situation caused him to rethink things. He realized his mother, and The Master, were not the ones to side with. He and Leelee would leave her, and the Underworld. The Rangers still didn't trust them. As Peter, he began working, delivering telegrams. His shape-shifting powers proved useful in getting big tips. He began saving up for the condo Leelee dreamed of living in. And when they helped to rescue Udonna from the Underworld, they proved to the Rangers that they were on the side of good now.
After the defeat of the Master, and Necrolai becoming the human Nikki, the reunited family moved into the condo. Proteus was dating an elf girl from a forest village. But she would break up with him, as all their dates were double dates with Nikki and Toby. Her brother, thinking Proteus had broken his sister's heart, sent him some cookies, laced with a potion that took away his shape-shifting powers.
With his powers blocked, an evil spirit took control of his body, It restored his powers, then used his body to seek out a bride. He chose Madison, who had recently reconciled with her boyfriend, Kevin. The spirit, called Nospe, bit Maddy to make her love him. Because Proteus did not bite her of his own free will, he lost his powers again, just as the same gypsy who told him to protect Leelee prophesied. To regain his powers, he needed to find true love within a week. Vida, who had been mourning the death of the knight, Lykos, who she had fallen in love with, was finally ready to move on. They found each other, surprisingly. After nearly four years of dating, he proposed. Vida said yes. They married at 11:11 am on 11/11/11.
In an alternate timeline 2030, Proteus and Vida, now the managers of the Rock-Porium, have a daughter named Petra Madison Pimvare, who shamelessly flirts with any man she sees. In the main timeline, Petra was born on July 31, 2013.
Proteus is still alive in 2500, with a long life-span inherited from his mother. It is not known if he bit Vida, or let her live a normal life, growing old and dying of old age. In 3009, Proteus will be the owner of the Rock-Porium, frequently visited by Leelee and her son, Phinlee, as well as the sorcerer Dartro, a descendant of Detrola and Clare.

Jake Oliver grew up reading the journals of his ancestor, Tommy. Unfortunately, he put his own take on certain events, especially relating to Tommy losing Kim and Kat to Brian and Bob Crowmeowme. His views became worse when he started drinking, heavily. He came to hate the Minutiaeians. It didn't matter to him that his sister was dating one. While attending Gray Lake University, he met a girl named Lyssy, and started dating her, unaware that she was a Crowmeowme. He just wanted to be intimate with her. Then he found out she was one-quarter Minutiaeian. He started treating her like dirt, even abusing her. Lyssy ended their relationship. A few weeks after that, at the beginning of the Thermox Invasion of 2500, Jake, more drunk that usual, came looking for her. He was going to get what he wanted from her, and then, possibly, kill her. Luckily, Tatsu, a close friend of her Uncle Tad's intervened. He gave Jake a good scare, enough to lose control of his bladder. He drove away, and in his drunken state, crashed his jeep, the same one that Tommy had driven nearly 500 years earlier, near Crowmeowme Tower. His sister, Sam, along with several members of the Crowmeowme family worked to save him, but it was too late. He was dead.
But death was not the end for Jake. His body was taken by the Thermox. His hatred of the Minutiaeians would make him a perfect weapon. Sam was also kidnapped. She and two others had just become Star Sentinels. The Thermox duplicated her Morph Device, making an evil version, the Dark Knight Riser. Jake was revived and given the Dark Knight powers. The leader of the Thermox forces, Baron Trax, saw one of his memories of Lyssy before he was revived. Trax knew she was the woman he was destined to marry. When the other Star Sentinels, Maski and James, came to rescue her. Jake confronted them. Maski, who was Sam's boyfriend, went to find her while James fought Jake. But James defeated Jake not with fighting moves, but with words, telling him how the Crowmeowmes worked to try and save him. Maski returned and added how Sam was crying that he was dead. Jake overcame the control that the Thermox used when they revived him, and joined in the mission to rescue Sam. He also realized he was wrong about the Minutiaeians. Reunited with his sister, Sam first hugged him, then slapped him.
Now that he was an official Star Sentinel, Jake accompanied the others as they went to the planet Edenoi to recruit help fighting the Thermox. Princes Dex and Lex and Princess Alex were sent by their grandfather, King Dex, to help. When Jake first saw Alex, he knew there was something special about her. Alex was glad to finally have an admirer. She and Jake started dating as soon as they returned to Earth. They kept their relationship a secret, as her brother's did not seem to approve. Their attempt at a first kiss was interrupted by the appearance of a Thermox warrior. Alex would kiss him for luck as he rushed to attack the warrior. A better kiss came after the battle, when Jake learned he was going to be an uncle. But after a change in Thermox leadership, a failsafe in Jake's powers were activated. His Morph Device was destroyed, and the Dark Knight Riser powers with them.
But Jake was not powerless for long. James did research on a fourth Star Riser. The only information on these new powers was one sentence. "Look within yourself for the answer." But a Thermox created vampire went after Alex, wanting her to become his mate. Jake watched this from the Star Carrier. Alex was bitten and briefly turned into a vampire, when a mysterious new warrior arrived, and destroyed the Thermox vampire, restoring Alex to normal. The warrior powered down, revealing himself to be Jake. These new powers, the powers of the Shining Knight Riser, allowed Jake's path to mirror his ancestor's. Dex would finally come to accept their relationship, as he had fallen in love with Maski's cousin, Megan. Jake and Alex finally declared their love for each other. But Lex presented another problem. He too had fallen in love with someone, namely Sam. Lex would be controlled by the Thermox, and abduct Sam to be his and his alone. To get his mind off his missing sister, Jake told Alex he would be willing to move to Edenoi to be with her. Sam was returned, after Jake and James captured the new Thermox empress. Sam's morph computer, however, was not. It was returned to her by a concubine of the former Thermox Emperor.
Sam was taken again, by a new Thermox warrior, the Demon Riser. By now, there was another change in leadership for the Thermox, and the new Emperor had Sam controlled to become his Empress. Alex's presence was the only think keeping Jake calm. With his sister now the Empress of the Thermox, Jake and the others went into the final battle of the invasion. Sam was eventually freed, and she and Maski helped James become even stronger. But when this power up ran out, Jake was left taking care of his three unconscious teammates. In the end, the Thermox Prince, Shiziro, who had betrayed his people to help Earth, took the throne that was rightfully his, and declared the invasion over. Alex and Dex both decided to stay on Earth with their new loves. Lex would return home, with the concubine who returned Sam's morph computer. Alex moved into Jake's apartment with him, and they thought the worst was behind them. They were wrong.
A week after the Thermox left, Space Pirates came to Earth, looking for an Orb. Jake used his Star Riser, a giant mechanical dragon, similar to Tommy's DragonZord to help James fight a monster sent down by the pirates. The monster was defeated, by members of the Star Police. But these pirates weren't done. One of the Pirates, Electron, enslaved Alex, using a potion that made her completely obedient. Another pirate had done the same to Megan. these two abductions had an effect on Dex, causing him to lose control. Jake tried to reason with Dex, but Dex just attacked him. Even with the help of Megan's brother, B5, Jake couldn't stop Dex. And when he and James contacted Edenoi to determine how to help Dex, Jake asked the King for his blessings to ask Alex to marry him. The King said if it made Alex happy, he would give his blessings. Jake and the others soon found Alex, and Electron, at a power plant. Dex showed up, and carried Alex off. Jake followed, hoping he could help Alex. But Dex said he could help her his own way. After returning to the Star Carrier, Jake began looking for Dex and Alex with the ship's monitors. What the future holds for Jake after that remains unwritten.

Of all the planets in the universe, you will rarely find one as peaceful and as civilized as Minutiae. An Earth-like planet, it's slightly closer to it's sun than Earth is. One Minutiaeian year, or cycle, is equivalent to six Earth months. It also rotates twice as fast as Earth does, so a Minutiaeian day is only 12 Earth hours. Winters on Minutiae are cold, with temperatures on a warm day averaging around -25 F. Summers, on the other hand can have temperatures as high as 175 F, giving Minutiaeians living on Earth a greater tolerance to extreme temperatures.
Minutiaeians, as a people, are not warlike. Minutiae is not part of a vast empire, it's just one planet and it's seven colonized moons. To say any Minutiaeian is average would be an understatement. Nearly every Minutiaeian has some sort of special ability, which is passed on though family, or clan, bloodlines. Clans are very tight-knit, with relations as distant as tenth cousins considered close relatives. Minutiaeian naming traditions dictate that at least one son every generation is named for either his grandfather or his uncle. Names usually relate to the power they possess, or to a field of knowledge they would one day study. Smaller families within the clans are unusual. Most parents have at least four children, some having as many as ten. The average Minutiaeian life span is 200,000 cycles, or 100,000 Earth years. Birthdays are celebrated infrequently, usually every 2,000 cycles. There are only two traits common to every Minutiaeian. All Minutiaeians have the same eye color, sapphire blue. Minutiaeians are also born chrono-sensitive, allowing them to notice changes in history, unless they are directly effected.
Clans live together in clan halls, towers, usually built when a new clan is formed, or when an existing clan moves to a new city. Clan Halls can be as tall as 50 stories, but thanks to Minutiaeian construction, can grow or shrink if needed, depending on how many members of a clan live within. Clan halls sit in the middle of a large plot of land, owned by each clan. The rest of the grounds can be developed in whatever ways the clan chooses. There are no zoning laws. Clans have been known to build shops, Charktori ranges, even family burial grounds on the land.
Minutiaeian civilization started out as barbaric, with various tribes fighting each other. That changed millions of Earth years ago, around the time when dinosaurs were becoming dominant on Earth. Amid all the fighting, one man stepped forward to try and bring peace to the planet. Born with the ability to create up to 100 doubles of himself, thus man, named Multiplas, sent representatives to every warring tribe, asking them to come to a gathering to discuss ending the fighting. The tribes sent their representatives, and they listened to Multiplas. His words were moving, and the tribes agreed to end their hostilities. And since Multiplas was the one who brought about this peace, he was declared the first Lord of Minutiae. The day of the meeting would forever be celebrated, once every two cycles, with a great feast, the Feast of Multiplas. Shortly after Multiplas died, presents began appearing in clan halls on the morning of the feast. Some say that it was Lord Multiplas himself who was delivering these presents, as only he could be in more than one place at the same time.
Since the death of Multiplas, a council was formed, to wisely govern the planet. Four Lords, each elected to their position, and an elected ruler, The Prime One. Numerous ministers advise the Four Lords in their decisions, and the Prime One is not above any laws. Unlike Earth politics, there are no scandals, no party lines, no mudslinging. Candidates for the Four Lords and the Prime One are chosen by a computer, and based on several factors. Age, clan status and popularity. Only one man has ever turned down the chance to be a candidate. Colta Explorato Micron Morphicron was selected to be a candidate to be one of the Four Lords, but refused, to deliver the remains of his Uncle to his cousins, who had been living on Earth for thousands of cycles.
Though Minutiae is a peaceful planet, they are able to defend themselves in case of invasion. The last great wars involving Minutiae were against the Electric Empire, and against KO-35. During the war with the Electric Empire, one clan, Clan Munitious, rebelled against Minutiaeian beliefs, and aided the Electric Empire. The war would have been lost, if not for proud warriors from Clan Morphicron. They stopped Clan Munitious, and turned the tide back toward Minutiae's favor. Things changed again, and things were looking grim for Minutiae, but help came from the planet Elnar-6. The two worlds joined forces, forming a long-term alliance, and defeating the Electric Empire. In the end, Clan Munitious was banished, and they swore revenge against Clan Morphicron. When not being used for defense, Minutiaeian combat is sport, divided into the Combatra and Charktori. The Combatra focuses on unarmed fighting, and could be compared to an Earth martial arts tournament. There are two levels of Combatra, amateur and professional. Most of the best at the amateur level eventually become professionals. Only 12-time champion Morphos Morphicron did not go professional, as he chose to leave planet to combat the forces of evil. Charktori is a shooting competition, requiring great skill. Each competitor, or Charktor, is armed with two weapons, a barra (similar to a bow) and a blaster. Two Charktors compete at a time, aiming at the same target. A computer determines who is more accurate. Only the best achieve the rank of Charktor Master, the most recent being Markanis Magmonic.
Minutiaeian cuisine is based purely on flavor, not on nutrition. Minutiaeian delicacies include cherubach, fried Ferbus, roast porcha and fresh grown sillarask. Cherubach is a plant that can be eaten raw or smoked like tobacco, but is toxic to all non-Minutiaeians. Ferbii, while kept as pets on planets like Edenoi, were at one time, outnumbering the Minutiaeian people. They were hunted, and it was realized how delicious they were when fried. Porcha is a pig-like creature, and must be roasted in special ovens, specifically used for porcha roasts. Sillarask is the most popular crop on Minutiae, a corn-like vegetable that can be eaten raw, like fruit. Most Clan halls grow Sillarask gardens on their roofs.
Unlike some civilizations, who are focused in whole or in part on developing weapons, Minutiaeian science is among the more advanced in the universe. The shipyards of Minutiae make some of the finest vessels to travel the stars. Among the foremost of these ships are the Explorato ships. Each ship's Colta (or Captain) and En Colta (First Mate) hand pick the crew before they begin their voyages. A typical Explorato crew spends as many as 500 cycles away from Minutiae at a time, making contact with new worlds, maintaining contact with others, and establishing trade routes for Minutiaeian merchant ships. Some planets, like Earth, were considered too primitive when first discovered by Minutieian Explorato, and initial contact was not made. Other worlds, like Eltar, became trading partners, receiving their own embassies.

Jake Ying comes from a long line of ninja. One of his ancestors taught Brian Crowmeowme and Jack Yamate centuries ago. But his family has known more than it's share of tragedy. His great-grandfather was a Japanese pilot, killed in the attack on Pearl Harbor. His great-grandmother was in Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. Thankfully, his grandfather was in Tokyo at the time. His grandfather and grandmother met in the 1950s, at a Gojira movie. They moved to the US in the 60s, and Jake's father was born on July 20, 1969. They named him Neil, after Neil Armstrong. Neil Ying met Mary Shannon, a second generation Irish-American at college, and they fell in love. Jake was born in 1993. When he was 5, his grandfather began his ninja training. Neil wanted Jake to be home schooled, but Mary didn't want Jake to miss out on the life of a normal boy.
As his ninja training progressed, Jake excelled with the use of his family's signature weapon, a shuriken, marked with a yin-yang symbol. He was also quite good with a sword. His grandfather died when Jake was 13. The family traveled to Japan for the funeral, where his ashes were scattered at the base of Mt Fuji.
When they returned home, Jake took part of his inheritance from his grandfather and bought a pet. He chose a ferret, and named him Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, but calls him Tik-Tik, for short.
Shortly after Jake's 18th birthday, Neil and Mary were killed in a car accident, leaving Jake alone. He considered moving to the East coast, where his maternal Grandmother and Uncle live on their family farm. But first, he has to honor his father's dying wish: To visit Mentor-Ji at Shiba House.
Upon arriving at Shiba House, Jake met the Samurai Rangers, and accompanied them to battle. There, they all met Matt Yang, who also happened to be a Samurai Ranger, and had the same kanji as the Ying clan, the kanji symbol for justice. Through Matt's grandfather, Jake and Matt learned they were cousins, with Matt's mother having been disowned for marrying a samurai. Jake helped save Matt's grandfather from the Nighlok, Regretarrow.
Jake stayed at the Shiba House, helping Ji while the Rangers were away. Occasionally, he would help the Rangers in the field. He soon realized he was falling for Emily. Unfortunately, it took her being severely injured by a Nighlok for him to tell her.
When Jake and Matt's long-presumed-dead Aunt Kimiko showed up, they thought they were going to have a pleasant family reunion. Instead, it turned out that Kimiko had been hired by a disguised Nighlok to assassinate Ji. To help her complete her mission, she had been given the Sasuke Morpher, which Master Xandred had developed to fight against one of the earlier generations of Samurai Rangers. Jake found it, and hoped to use it to help his new friends. But since it was created by the Nighloks, it controlled Jake, causing him to fight against his friends. It took memories of his parents, and his feelings for Tik-Tik and Emily, to help Jake bring the Sasuke Ranger powers under his control. The family kanji appeared on it, leading to speculation that Xandred's original Sasuke Ranger was also a member of the Ying Clan.
Kimiko revealed to Jake and Matt the reason she took the job to kill Ji. She was dying, and wanted to make sure her daughter, Mariko (named for Mat's mother, Kimiko's twin sister) would be well taken care of. She now feared Mariko would be targeted in retaliation for her failure to complete the assignment. Jake and Matt are planning to go to Japan to bring her back to Panorama City.
By then, Jake had finally told Emily how he felt. They soon began dating, although he feared his family's curse was more of a threat to her than any Nighlok. But their relationship would not last long, and not just because Jake feared the curse. When a Nighlok accidentally switched Jake and Tik-Tik's bodies, Jake saw through Tik-Tik's eyes how much Mike and Emily cared for each other. Wanting Emily to be happy, Jake broke up with her, not telling her the whole truth until he knew she was happy with Mike.
Jake would soon find his true love, however, when Jayden's older sister Lauren arrived, after years being hidden, so she could perfect the sealing power. Jake was instantly attracted to her. Jake soon fought her in a training duel, which lasted half an hour with no clear winner. His attraction to her grew stronger.
When Master Xandred attacked Lauren, Jake felt a rage like never before, but kept it in check. Little did he know that he unlocked a power-up for the Sasuke Ranger powers. The next time he morphed, Jake's eyes and kanji glowed red, and his shuriken would ignite in midair. This, Xandred revealed, was the Shinobi mode. While Jake was able to deliver a massive blow to the Nighlok leader, Xandred dealt a critical one back at Jake. Since he had created the Sasuke powers, Xandred was able to destroy them with a single, powerful slash.
Alive, but somewhat sore, Jake left the battle, returning to Shiba House. He found Lauren lying unconscious in the dojo, and, with the help of Mariko, carried Lauren to a bed. When she woke up, Jake told her how he felt. Lauren, never having had time for anything recreational, especially a social life, wasn't sure how to react, until Mariko told them the Nighlok had been defeated. Lauren kissed Jake, and their relationship began.
Jake and Tik-Tik would leave with Lauren, so Jake could teach her how to lead a normal life. They recently moved to Gray Lake City, taking advantage of the city's invitation to the Samurai team. Jake would get a job at one of Brian Crowmeowme's dojos, unaware of Brian's past connection to the Ying clan.
On November 12, 2013, after dating for just over seven months, Jake proposed to Lauren. She said yes. They married a little over a year later, December 13, 2014. Shortly before their first anniversary, Jake suffered another loss, when Tik-Tik died. Jake and Lauren buried the beloved ferret under a tree in their backyard. On Jan 10, 2016, Lauren gave birth to their first child, Neil Jayden Ying, named for his paternal grandfather and his only uncle.
Power Rangers (Super) Samurai
Kimiko Ying was the twin sister of Mariko, who was disowned when she married a Samurai of the Yang clan. Upset over this treatment of her sister, Kimiko faked her own death. She became a ninja assassin for hire. She fell in love with anoher Ninja on a mission, and they became lovers. He was killed, however, and Kimiko learned shortly after she was pregnant. A few months after her brother Neil became a father, Kimiko gave birth to a daughter, who she named Mariko after her twin. Kimiko would take some time to spend Mariko's formative years as a good parent, until the need for money arose. She left Mariko with her paternal grandmother, and returned to work. On one mission, Kimiko, who had always scoffed at the curse on her family, was exposed to a rare disease. She was dying, and had a few years left, at the most. Wanting to spend her remaining time living the good life with her daughter, Kimiko took any high-paying assignment. The last one she took would unknowingly be for the Nighlok. Paid handsomely in advance, Kimiko was sent to kill Ji, Mentor of the Samurai Rangers. She was given a weapon to use, if needed. The Sasuke Morpher. What Mariko didn't know was that she had two nephews, who were both at Shiba House. Jake became the Sasuke Ranger, and Kimiko revealed to him and Matt why she took this assignment.
Power Rangers (Super) Samurai
Jake and Matt, along with Matt's grandfather, Makato, went to Japan to find Mariko. After fighting a Nighlok and retrieving the EagleZord, the two of them met their cousin. She returned with them to the United States, where she was reunited with her mother.
Kimiko's illness grew worse. Hoping to save her, Matt and Jake went off to break the Ying family curse. A Nighlok, known as Grimspear, was responsible for the curse, and kept the spirits of the members of the Ying family in a stone, which illuminated his cave. Working together, Jake and Matt shattered the stone and defeated Grimspear, ending the curse. But it was too late. Just moments before the stone was shattered, Kimiko succumbed. Per her request, her ashes were scattered at the grave of her twin sister.
Mariko would stay at Shiba House with her cousins for several weeks, until Makato offered to hire her as a live-in housekeeper. Despite worrying about keeping Mariko safe from Nighlok, the offer was accepted.

Born early in the Earth year 1995 on Minutiae, Malagros, son of Mercantus and Minimala Makritek, was cousin to several prominent Minutiaeians, Morphos, Multus and Micron Morphicron (the latter also being his holdpatra, or godfather) and Markanis Magmonic. Mercantus had been the supply officer on Micron's explorato vessel, and his older brother married Micron's aunt.
When Malagros was six cycles old, Mercantus took his famiy on a trip, to visit Micron on the planet Terra 3, which is what Minutiaeians called Earth. Unfortunately, the forces of Astronema, fearing the ship carried technology which could be beneficial to the Space Rangers, attacked their ship. The family managed to make it to an escape pod, which landed on Earth, in the woods of Harwood County.
As Mal, as his parents called him for short, grew up, he learned he had a link to plant life. He could influence how they grew, as well as knew what they were feeling. This empathic link would often warn him of danger in the woods. He used his abilities to help create the natural shelter his family would call home. The family would lead an isolated life, until one fateful day.
Mal was alerted by the trees to an intruder in the woods. hiding in one tree, he observed the alien Creepox. Trying to return to his parents, Mal misstepped, falling out of the tree, landing near Emma, a student at Harwood County High. The two of them were teleported to Gosei's command center, Emma on purpose, Mal, by accident. Even though he was not intended to become one, Gosei made Mal the Gold Megaforce Ranger.
Mal and the others soon received their MechaZords. Mal was given the Gosei Stag, a majestic denizen of the forest. It became a packpack on the Gosei Great Megazord, and is the only component Zord that does not launch it's head to attack.
The day after becoming a Ranger, Mal's life was changed forever. While he was meeting with his new friends and teammates, an alien carpenter ant, Termini, was sent down to attack Earth's forests. Despite a delay when Dante Manfred attacked him, Termini made it to the forest, only to be confronted by Mercantus and Minimala. By the time Mal arrived, it was too late. He found their bodies, riddled with Termini's splinters, lying on the ground. He gave him parents a proper funeral, and chose to remain in the forest, rather than move into the city to be closer to his new friends. He also learned of Gray Lake, where his holdpatra and cousins live.
Recently, Noah sent an email to the Minutiaeian Ambassador's official website, letting them know of Mal's whereabouts. This lead to a group of Crowmeowmes, including Bart, Brian, Bob and Bruce, coming to Harwood County to meet Mal. They provided him with documents he would need to get a job, credit cards and a Minutiaeian educational computer, so he would be able to get a GED. He also told Bart, in Minutiaeian, that he was developing feelings for Emma.
Like his teammates, Mal was given an Ultra Mode by the Wild Sword. Mal's Ultra Mode, unlike those of his teammates, is silver in color, not golden, to differentiate it from his Ranger Color. Shortly after this, while severely weakened, he mumbled his feelings for Emma, and almost spoke them clearly when he and his teammates thought their ends were near. This brought him into a minor rivalry with his teammate, Dante Manfred, who also has feelings for Emma. When Emma learned of both of their feelings for her, she chose the diplomatic route, and told them she wouldn't choose either of them, until Earth was finally safe.
When an alien armada, led by Vrak's brother, Prince Vekar, attack Earth, Mal and his teammates needed new powers to fight them. Mal's Super Mega Mode was a Platinum Ranger, not a Gold one. Gosei also gave him a Master Key, as at least two past Ranger teams (Mystic Force and Jungle Fury) did not have Ranger powers compatible with Minutiaeian biology. He is, however, a Ranger without a Zord, at present, helping Troy with the Rangers' Sky Ship. Mal would soon gain a Zord, when Dsnte, who went missing after the final battle against Vrak and the Messenger, resurfaced. He had been abducted by the Armada, and brainwashed into serving them. His freedom came at the cost of his original Mega powers, but Gosei had new Super Mega Powers for him, and a zord, the Sky Cruiser, which he would share with Mal.
Mal's Minutiaeian jealousy became apparent when Emma chose the recently arrived Orion to help her stop a monster, by pretending to get married. Mal slammed his head against a metal pipe at the thought of Orion possibly kissing Emma. Thankfully, this jealousy was not enough to cause Mal to fall victim to the Curse of Miah Nabas. Emma reassured Mal that she only chose Orion because he and Dante would have been too eager for a kiss. That weekend, she took Mal to the botanical gardens, not on a date, but as two friends with a love of plants.
Sadly, Dante was lost in battle. The Armada had created their own Ranger, who could transform into Legendary Ranger villains. The Rangers barely survived their first encounter with him. Their second encounter, he was accompanied by 12 X-Borgs, who could transform into Legendary Foot Soldiers. The Rangers managed to destroy half of them, and only Orion's gold mode won the battle that day. Their third encounter robbed the Armada Ranger of his transformations, and his remaining X-Borgs, a defeat that caused the Armada Ranger to be banished. With nothing left to lose, he attacked the Rangers one last time, intent on taking one of them out of the picture, permanently. He chose Emma, angering Mal and Dante, but Dante was the only one to act on this. He tackled the Armada Ranger, forcing him to free Emma. The Armada Ranger soon exploded, but Dante was too close to get away. He sacrificed himself to save Emma, declaring his love for her with his final words. The plants showed how Mal was affected by this. as flowers wilted and trees prematurely shed their leaves.
After the final battle against the Armada, which saw their entire fleet destroyed, and the hordes of remaining X-Borgs destroyed, with the help of the Legendary Rangers, Mal knew it was time for him to leave Harwood County. He and the others had been invited to move to Gray Lake, and, as a member of the Crowmeowme extended family, Mal already had an apartment reserved for him in Crowmeowme Tower. He left employment at Ernie's, and presented his former employer with a large investment check. The next day, his friends came out to the woods for a goodbye picnic. Per Minutiaeian tradition, he gave each of them a present. In Emma's case, he gave her two presents. He left her the duty to protect his area of the forest, and then, he kissed her. It was the second kiss he had given her; the first was when she was in an seemingly unending sleep, caused by a monster. Emma made no reaction, good or bad, as Mal kissed her, partly because of Dante's dying words, and partly because she had a Crush on Orion, the team's Silver Ranger and Mal's co-worker at Ernie's. With his parents transferred into coffins, for a proper burial in Gray Lake, Mal said goodbye to his friends, to begin the next phase of his life.
In July of 2019, Mal, who had to replace some flowerpots that broke during an Earthquake, met a lovely young woman named Brigit, who turned out to be Gia's cousin. She and Mal began spending quite a lot of time together. She was targeted by the anti-Minutiaeian element, and abducted, along with Rainbow and Melissa. After she was rescued, Mal had Brigit move in with him, not only for her own safety, but because he loved her more than he ever did Emma. On the eve of the Feast of Multiplas, Mal proposed. Brigit said yes without hesitation. Their engagement was a short one, as they married at noon on New Year's Day 2020, in a traditional Minutiaeian ceremony.
Arnold Charles Edwards, known to his friends by the nickname Ace, is first cousin to Bree Cornett, Alfred's former girlfriend. (His mother is her father's sister.) Arnold and his family have lived in Amber Beach for several years. In ninth grade, he first met Shelby Watkins, and the two became fast friends. They even dated, briefly, before realizing they had a better relationship being just friends.
Ace was known at Amber Beach High for dating the smarter girls. Whether they were on Student Council, the debate team or the Chess club, Ace liked girls who had brains, as well as beauty. Sadly, by graduation, he still had not found his perfect woman.
Ace is, like many teenagers, a pop culture junkie. Movies, TV shows, video games, comic books; Ace collects it all. As such, he tends to make a lot of pop culture references, sometimes to the annoyance of those he is with at the time. Because of everything he buys, he has yet to buy his own car, often using his mother's minivan for transport, which doesn't set a good impression with his dates.
When Shelby got her job at the Dinosaur Museum, Ace would visit her frequently. These visits became even more frequent the first time he saw Shelby's boss, Kendall Morgan. She was his perfect combination of brains and beauty, despite being eight years his senior. Ace would often consider acting on his crush, but was afraid it would cost Shelby her job. Soon after Shelby became the Pink Dino Charge Ranger, Ace decided to give Kendall a gift, saying it was from a secret admirer. He first checked the museum gift shop, but found nothing he could afford. Learning they were hiring, he did take a job application.
At a local flea market, Ace, who, aside from his pop culture obsessions, had a sizable collection of rocks, found an unusual specimen, one which looked almost like a diamond. He bought it, unaware it was, in fact, an Energem. Fury and some Vivix soon arrived, looking for the Energem. Shelby and the other Rangers, including their new Brown Ranger, JC Noblet, also arrived. When a young girl was separated from her mother by a crowd fleeing from the battle, Ace risked his own life to save her and reunite mother and child. This act of bravery was enough for the Energem to bond with him. Ace soon became the Diamond Ranger, with powers based on the tupandactylus, a flying dinosaur.
Accompanying his fellow Rangers back to their base, Ace soon learned his close friend Shelby was one of them. Seeing that Kendall worked closely with the Rangers was an added bonus for him. Learning he had an application to work in the museum gift shop, Kendall said she would make sure he was hired, so he could easily slip away to fulfill his Ranger duties.
Ace found his Zord on a mission in the mpuntains, where his teammates Jean-Claude and Quatra also found their Zords. Or rather, Ace's Zord found him. An alien named Desira had been sent to get Ace's energem, using her ability to use what someone desires most against them, Ace saw her as Kendall, attacked by Vivix. Saving her from their attack (all part of her plan) "Kendall" told Ace she wanted to thank him properly, even calling him Arnie, a nickname he only let his girlfriends use. The other Rangers, however, saw Desira as what she was, and Jean-Claude took a picture of her to convince Ace she wasn't Kendall. It was at that time that the Tupandacytl Zord arrived, drawn to Ace's energem. Desira was defeated after she turned three of the Rangers to stone.
With advice from Jean-Claude, that night, Ace told Kendall of his feelings for her, even though he knew she would not be interested in a relationship. And indeed, she told him she preferred to keep things professional between the two of them.
Ace remained hopeful that she would change her mind, and when Sledge was defeated and other members of the team left Amber Beach, Ace stayed behind, still working in the gift shop. But then Heckyl and Snide took over, and the Rangers were needed again. Ace was always at the ready to fight.
When Sir Ivan destroyed a priceless antique on loan to the museum, and it looked as if the Museum would be taken as payment for it. Ace showed concern. Not concern for losing his job, or seeing Kendall everyday, but for where Keeper and the Energems would go. Outside the safety of the lab, Snide to take them with ease. This caused Kendall to start to see Ace in a different light.
Eventually, Sledge returned, and the Dark Energem was found. The power of all 13 Energems were used to save the Earth from a black hole, opened by the destruction of the ark Energem. The Rangers went back in time, to the day Keeper landed on Earth. They defeated Sledge in the past, sending him and his ship into the sun, before Keeper returned everyone to their own times. Upon returning to the present, Ace was surprised when Kendall said she could call him Kendall, and that he could call her antime calling him Arnie. She punctuated this with a kiss. Ace finally had his perfect woman. Ace also impressed her with his amateur time travel knowledge, gained from many movies he had seen; a predestination paradox for Ivan returning to his own time, and an alternate timeline created when they stopped Sledge and prevented the extinction of the dinosaurs. What the future holds for this new couple is a story still to be told.
Within six months of beginning his relationship with Kendall, Ace moved out of his parents' house, getting his own apartment closer to work. A two bedroom apartment, Ace turned one bedroom into his private library, where he keeps his various movies, comic books, video games and what not. He rotates roughly 7 movies and 12 video games to a shelf near the TV. Since moving in, most of the cooking he does is in the microwave.
Six months into their relationship, (six times longer than his longest previous relationship had lasted) Kendall took their relationship to a physical level, making one of Ace's dreams come true. On their first Valentines Day together, Ace proposed, with an Energem looking diamond on the ring. Kendall accepted. A little over a month after their engagement, Kendall gave Ace some unexpected news: He was going to be a father. He took the news well, and suggested a house they could look at, across from his parents. That October, Kendall gave birth to a healthy son, Theodore Ivan Morgan-Edwards, though his parents call him Teddy.
In Revolution, Ace is part of a much smaller team of Rangers, but still is in love with Kendall. A love she returned much sooner than she did in the main Dino Charge dimension. When she left with Lord Zedd, who desired her as his new Queen, to save the Earth, Ace became despondent. He was ready to jump off the Amber Beach Bridge into a garbage scow, either the impact will end his woes, or it would take him to someplace new where he could forget about Kendall. She returned at just the right time, and their relationship resumed. Ace wanted to marry her, then and there, but Kendall wasn't ready. However, she said she might be ready in another month. She has yet to tell him, however, that she is pregnant with Zedd's child. After feeling something akin to morning sickness, Kendall told the small team of Rangers (and one potential Ranger) of her condition. While Kendall was unsure she wanted to keep this child, Keeper convinced her nurture can be stronger than nature, especially with Ace as a father figure. Thanks to Goldar's machinations, the child a daughter, was born early, thanks to artificial pregnancy acceleration. Kendall named her slightyly red-tinted daughter Miracle. Miracle is healthy, but her cries can cause power outages. To keep her calm, Ace and Kendall took her to a secluded cabin belonging to Ace's family.
The main PR dimension's version of Ace is much like his Dino Charge counterpart. He works at the gift shop of the Amber Beach Dinosaur Musuem. Shelby is one of his closest friends. And he has a huge crush on Kendall. He just doesn't have an Energem. Which would come in handy, as an alien called the Adaptacroid has chosen Kendall to be one of his 12 brides, using his first bride, Gwen Tennyson, to collect her. Ace foolishly followed Gwen and Kendall through a portal, but the Adaptacroid has captured him, saying Ace will get to watch as he mates with Kendall, before finishing off Ace. Facing potential execution, and with Kendall fully under the Adaptacroid's influence, Ace proclaimed his love for her, hoping to free her.
The center of Gray Lake, and the first building on Earth to be built using Minutiaeian construction methods, Crowmeowme Tower is the Earthly equivalent of a Minutiaeian clan hall. The entire Crowmeowme family lives here, with Willy and Alfred's residences within untouched since they departed on Terra Venture. Mal is the newest member of the family to move in, and has already made his residence feel perfect for himself.
Minutiaeian construction allows for a very flexible floor plan. Even the number of floors isn't fixed, despite the building being fully constructed. While the tower itself currently stands at 40 stories, it could reach as high as twice that, to accommodate an ever-growing family. And the residences are not fixed locations either, as a traditional Minutiaeian clan hall has the residences of the children on the floors directly under their parents residence. Thus, even though the floors reserved for Brian Jr and Kelly's residences are not currently close to Brian and Kim's, they will be on their respective occupant's 18th birthdays.
And while the residential levels all seem to have the same exterior footprint, the interior layout of each residence can be customized by the occupant(s). Load bearing is done by concealed beams of hardened universal steel within the ceilings/subfloors. Walls can be erected or removed easily, and rooms will seem larger than they actually appear to me. These are hallmarks of traditional Minutiaeian construction.
The main entrance to the tower is through the lobby on the ground floor. There are three passenger elevators and one freight elevator, although one of the elevators is for residents only, and can only be accessed with a key card. Visitors check-in with the receptionist, who gives them access to the public elevators, or freight elevator, in the case of large deliveries.
Also on the ground floor is the large swimming pool and an oversized hot tub. This area can only be accessed by elevator, which is another private elevator.
The second floor of the tower has only two rooms. One is the large dining room, used for family feasts, including Thanksgiving, the Feast of Multiplas, and any other occasion where the entire family would dine together.
The other room is the ballroom. This is where Brian's election night watch parties are held, along with numerous other special occasions. Significant wedding anniversaries, milestone birthdays, among others. Only one wedding has been held here so far; Oliver and Ronny's, although, Brian and Kim and Bob and Kat renewed their vows here on their respective 20th anniversaries. When the entire Morpicron clan came to visit a few years back, this is where they teleported in.
Perhaps the most used of the non-residential levels is the recreational level. There are three game rooms. One room is for video games. A large TV, with a variety of video game consoles from the 1970s to the present, dominates one wall. The large TV can be divided into multiple displays, allowing multiple games to be played across multiple consoles, or even local multiplayer with each player having their own screen. On the opposite wall are actual arcade cabinets, along with a few pinball machines.
The middle game room is for large table games. Billiards, ping pong, air hockey, foosball, even shuffleboard can be played here. There is also a card table, suitable for all games from crazy eighs to poker.
On the far right is the board game room. There are several small tables, and many shelves of board games. There are also several chess tables, two checkers tables and a backgammon table.
Across the corridor from these rooms is the simu-room, using the same technology as the Simudeck on the Megaship. This can be used for any number of activities, from martial arts, to Kim and Kelly's Mommy and Me yoga class. The most common configuration, however, is a private movie theater, complete with access to first run theatrical movies.
The next two floors focus on Minutiaeian heritage and culture, and that includes plant life native to Minutiae. The private greenhouse level grows all manner of Minutiaeian flora, from edibles like grask, grava beans and cherubach, to decoratives, especially a grove of Multiplas shrubs. Mal has spent a lot of time here since moving into the tower, to further reconnect to his heritage.
Above that is a level devoted purely to Minutiaeian culture in general, and the Morphicron clan specifically. A shrine to Lord Multiplas occupies one corner of the level. While Minutiaeians are not so much a spiritual people, some do ask Lord Multiplas for help in times of greatest need, akin to an Earthling praying in their house of worship. Next is a Minutiaeian m'ol'i, a pub. All sorts of spirits, from almost every known planet, including Earth, are consumed here. There is also a room, where the ashes of Micron and Mindrona, Brian and Bob's parents, are kept. The fallen X-1, Ben Crowmeowme's original body, also rests here. Finally, is the room where Morphicron family heirlooms and artifacts are displayed. Most are Minutiaeian, but some are from Brian and Bob's 15,000+ years on Earth, including the suit of armor Brian wore, both as a medieval knight, and as a costume back in Angel Grove.
The next three floors are currently unoccupied. They could be used for future additions to the family, or, if needed, extra space for guests.
Where the third floor is where most of the fun in the tower takes place, the ninth level is the most utilitarian level above ground; the building's central laundy. Residential floors are have laundry shoots, which lead to the sorting area. A staff of robots, all designed by Bob, sort the laundry by apartment, and then between machine washable and dry clean only. Laundry is done every day, on a specific rotation. Each residence knows when to retrieve their laundry for the week, which is picked up in the same room where it is sorted.
The next ten floors are all guest residences, three per floor. Each guest residence as equivalent of a room in a five star hotel, in terms of comfort and amenities.
The ten levels above that are reserved for the family members under 18. For now, they occupy a standard floor plan, but will be customized, like all residential floors. Three of the floors will be subdivided. One floor will be divided into three residences, for Barty, Cassie and Annie, and two floors will be divided into two residences, for the two sets of twins. (Ronnie and Ty, Agatha and Eve) While Brian and Bob had residences on the same floor in Morphicron Hall, as Brian is the Supreme Patrias of Earth, he and Kim are entitled to the own floor, and thus, Bob and Kat get their own floor as well.
Despite only being occupied for a few months, Mal has made his residence suit his tastes, with a private greenhouse of Earth plants taking up more space than any other room. He keeps a picture of Emma near his bed, in hopes that someday, she will share that room with him.
Oliver, Ronny and their boys live on the next floor up. Being twins, the boys share a bedroom for now. Oddly, their bathroom is on the opposite end of the residence from their bedroom, as part of Ronny's plan to make sure they get as much exercise as possible, despite Oliver's reassurance that Minutiaeian metabolism would keep them in shape. Oliver and Ronny also have their own private spaces within the apartment. Oliver's is his private library, with some permanent fixtures, and a rotation of other books. Ronny's space a room for her many trophies.
Bruce and Cassidy are they only residents who have two floors. Their apartment and the KGL Emergency studio. While Bruce does not have a private space in the apartment, he does have a music room, where he continues to play the piano. Cassidy has her own dressing room, near the direct access to the news studio. Kitty's bathroom, like Ronnie and Ty's, is also on the opposite end of the residence, so Kitty can have a closet almost as large as her mother's.
The KGL Emergenmcy studio has a perfect replica of the KGL news set, so no one can tell Cassidy is broadcasting from home in the event of a major news story. (Such as the night Osama Bin Laden was located.) The control room is fully automated, so Bruce can run things single handedly. Even the cameras can be operated remotely, should Devin not arrive before they go on the air.
Ben, Dana and Carolyn live on the next floor up. Carolyn has the advantage of having her bathroom directly next to her bedroom. The subfloor is thicker than most levels, to allow for the emergency access tunnel so Ben and Dana can get to Lightspeed Headquarters. They also have their own offices. Dana can research the latest medical advances, or review notes on patients, while Ben review case notes, trying to clear up any backlog of unsolved crimes.
Once one of the most crowded apartments in the tower (second to Bob and Kat's before Alfred's 18th birthday), Bart and Ashley's is, for now, one of the emptiest. Until the triplets and Sam arrive though the time portal in 2019, it's only Bart and Ashley for now. The bedrooms for all four of their children untouched since Zordy opened the time portal. It is one of the few with more than two bathrooms. (One master, one for Barty and Sam, one for Cassie and Annie, and a half bath.) Ashley has a small studio, where she can carry out her fashion design ideas. Bart has an office which, given his status as Minutiae's ambassador to Earth, is considered Minutiaeian territory, just like the embassy a few blocks away.
Unoccupied since February, Alfred's apartment is exactly as he left it. One of two residences with a dedicated media room, Alfred's private lab is equipped for a number of scientific disciplines, mainly robotics and biology. Should Alfred and Mary ever return home for a visit, they can easily customize the apartment to meet their shared tastes, or give Mary a space of her own.
The most crowded residence in the tower belongs to Bob and Kat, as they still have four children under 18. While Bobby has the advantage of a private bathroom. Eliza has to share with her younger sisters. Kat has a small ballet studio in the residence, and she has been training the twins since they were old enough to walk. Bob's office doubles as a lab, where he furthers his mastery of cloning, and more terrestrial sciences.
KK's residence is perhaps the most simple of all the residences. Knowing she would only be living there less than a year, she did not overcrowd it with too many walls or rooms. She didn't need a lab space, like her older brother and cousin, so her private space is dedicated to her love of soccer, including the trophies she's won playing on Conner's teams.
Being the first Earth-born Crowmeowme, Willy's residence was the first in the tower to be opened after 2008. Like Alfred's, Willy's has a dedicated media room, akin to a home theater. Rather than have spate kitchen and dining rooms, Willy chose a small kitchenette, since he had no plans to entertain many guests, expecting to have, at the most, his then girlfriend Angela over for dinner. This gave him space for both a lab and a private dojo. Brian has already worked out several rearrangements, for when Willy, Maya and B.J. ever return home for a visit, although, Willy has final say on the look of his residence.
The penthouse of Crowmeowme Tower is Brian and Kim's residence. Per Minutiaeian custom, the Supreme Patrias lives in the upper most residence of a clan hall. Junior and Kelly each have their own bedroom suits, although, until she is potty trained, Kelly's bathroom has no toilet, just a small tub, a sink, and a space for her potty training seat. Junior and Kelly do share a playroom. Kim has a small workout space, where she keeps the balance beam and vault Brian gave her for their 20th anniversary. Brian's study contains his private library, as well as access to city computers, in case his mayoral duties are needed away from city hall.
The roof is accessed by a stairway across from Brian and Kim's door. An elevated helipad allows Crowmeowme helicopters, or those of visiting VIPs to land with ease. There are several grills, some gas, some charcoal, and some wood burning, used for family barbecues. Near that is an outdoor dining area, so the food can be eaten fresh off the grill, instead of waiting for it to travel down. Several telescopes dominate one corner of the roof, some powerful enough to view all the way back to Minutiae on a clear night, despite the city lights below. A weather station sits nearby, providing accurate forecasts for the KGL Weather reports. Willy and Angela spent a lot of time up here before he left on Terra Venture. The central air system for the entire tower takes up another corner, to keep all the floors nice and cool on the hottest California summer days.
Descending all the way back down, the first level below ground is the garage. With room to park 500 cars, there is more than enough room for every Crowmeowme automobile. There is also an office, where drivers, well paid by the Crowmeowme family, can chauffeur around those too young to drive, or to drive one of the Crowmeowme limos on special occasions.
Below the garage is a level of emergency shelters. Even with the shields protecting the city, the Crowmeowmes came down here during the early stages of the Armada's assault on Earth. Each shelter provides comfortable living for up to one week.
The next level down is one of the most restricted areas in all of Gray Lake. An emergency command and control center, from where the city's hidden defenses can be activated. The Crowmeowmes also use this area for secure meetings. This level also has the tower's well stocked wine cellar.
The lowest level of the tower has the generator for the entire building, to keep it functional should there be other power outages nearby. Also down here is the tower's most closely guarded secret. Four powerful engines. In case of a world ending situation, Crowmeowme Tower is cable of space flight, with room for up to 500,000 passengers. This secret is closely guarded to keep the anti-Minutiaeian element from using this as more fodder for their campaigns. If they knew of this, they would probably wonder just who, aside from members of the Crowmeowme family, would make the seemingly elite lsit of those who would survive the end of the world.

Based in the same alternate dimension where Toliver comes from, the Crowmeowme Crime Family are the evil doppelgangers of the Crowmeowmes. Their goal, short term, is to control all of California, but their long term objective is global domination.
Don Brian Crowmeowme - The head of the family, the "Boss" of Gray Lake. He has his fingers in every racket in the city, and bribed his way to power. Responsible for numerous deaths, including President Zedd's first wife, Rita. Outside of Gray Lake, he's public enemy #1. His marriage to Kim is more one of convenience than of love, as her father owed the family a great amount of money. As long as Kim is with Brian, her father wont have to face any repercussions.
Bob Crowmeowme: The family's money man, and chief scientist. He's responsible for creating Toliver, along with Ben and Bruce. He's also known for frequenting many ladies of the evening, despite his marriage to Kat.
Bart Crowmeowme: The consigliere. Came to Earth twenty years ago, bringing with him a cache of advanced weapons, which helped th family's rise in power. Married Ashley, to save her from a life walking the streets. Willing to marry off his daughters to anyone who can bring him the heads of the leaders of the California state legislature, Senator Spectre and Representative Astronema.

Alfred: Bob's son, Willy's enforcer on Mirinoi. Created a new type of drug, more addictive than cocaine, heroin and marijuana. Uses robots to make sure those in debt to Willy pay up quickly, or they will find themselves in a series of coffins.
Ben Crowmeowme: The corrupt police chief of Gray Lake. There is no bribe he wont take, no law abiding citizen he wont trump up charges on. Addicted to morphine, which is why he married Dana, to keep himself supplied.
Tod the Terrible: Ruler of Turtle Cove, forced to flee after the Orgs regrouped. Married Taylor, his favorite and most loyal slave.
Tad: Formerly the figurehead boss of Blue Bay Harbor, though Tatsu was the real power. Had Tori as his lover, and regularly abused her, even killing her real lover, Ken. Defeated by the Ken from our dimension, and sent packing. Rejoined his twin brother, hiding on the outskirts of Gray Lake.
Bruce Crowmeowme: In charge of Gray Lake's bustling porn industry. Co-starred with Cassidy in her first movie, shortly after her 18th birthday, then married her to make her a star. Paid Ben to lock up Devin for groping Cassidy.
Mal Makritek: The newest member of the family. Uses his ability to influence plant growth to make new strains of marijuana. Blackmailed Gia and Emma into becoming his lovers. Had a vine strangle Jake when he tried to save Gia.
In November of 1963, at the height of the Cold War, and just one week before his assassination, President John F. Kennedy, who knew Brian and bob's extra-terrestrial origins and history. requested a soldier, as skilled as Brian, to help out in case things with the Soviet Union escalated. Bob made a clone of Brian, with a few physical alterations. He also implanted holographic emitters within the clone, to allow a perception of aging. To insure stability, he remained in the tank until January of 1964. Taking the name Carl Crowme, he joined the Army, and began his basic training.
By the time the US entered the conflict in Vietnam, Carl was a Lieutenant. He served multiple tours in country, and was decorated several times. He also made several lasting friendships. When he returned home on one of the last choppers out of Saigon, he saw the anti-war sentiment of the times, and left the Army. He would travel the world as a freelance adventurer, putting his training to use helping those in need.
In 1981, one of Carl's old friends, now a Colonel, told him of a new terrorist threat that was emerging, a group calling itself Cobra. Feeling the call of duty, but seemingly too old to start anew, Carl reset his holograms, re-enlisting as his own son, Carl Jr. By 1982, he had completed basic training again, and was already a PFC, when he was recruited to a new specials missions force, collectively known as G.I. Joe. Carl was given the code-name of Chrome, for his tough nature. After their team's first mission, Carl was promoted to Corporal.
Before the year was out, Carl had risen quickly through the ranks, and was now a Major, second in command to his old friend, who went by the code-name of Hawk. And it was in 1983, that Carl found love.
A model turned tank driver, Courtney Krieger went by the code-name of Cover Girl. Carl fell in love with her at first sight. Due to the special nature of the team, fraternizing within the ranks was allowed. Their first date was into New York City, for Shakespeare in the Park. The sparks of love burned hot and fast, and they were inseparable ithin a few months. Not wanting to watch her grow old, but knowing theu couldn't get married wile they were still active duty, Carl received the matrimonial formula from Brian and Bob, along with a small holographic prohector, easily concealed within standard issue dog tags. Even though they weren't married, Carl injected Courtney with in on the first anniversary of their first date, slowing her aging to a crawl, which the hologram concealed.
The special nature of the team's missions meant that many of the team would venture outside their areas of expertise. As such, Carl had to be ready for any battle field, whether it was underwater...
… the North Pole...
… a vast desert...
… or someplace that could only be reached by parachute.
For some missions, Carl led his own unit within the team, known as Chrome's Commandos. A specially trained group within the larger Joe team, they would often be an advanced team, when Cobra had already taken over a location. Striking by night, they would weaken Cobra's defenses, to prepare for a larger scale battle. These raids lead to Carl's final promotion, to the Rank of Colonel, only a few years after Hawk was promoted to General.
By the early 21st century, Cobra were not the only terrorists threatening the world on such an organized level. After 9/11, Carl and his Commandoes would sneak into Afghanistan, looking for Al Qaeda forces and their Taliban allies, After the location and execution of Osama Bin Laden, Chrome's Commandoes were retired as a unit, and Carl took a break from the field, leading from the team's classified headquarters.
In early 2018, having been in the Army for 26 years, and now looking 55 years old, Carl, worrying about the fitness of the new Cmmander-in-Chief, filed his retirement papers, and encouraged Courtney to do the same. By mid-June, the two of them retired from the Army with full pensions and honorable discharges, and headed to the only family Carl knew, the Crowmeowmes. On the train ride to gray Lake, Carl officially proposed and Courtney said yes without a moment's hesitation.
Once in Gray Lake, and moved intyo an apartment within Crowmeowme Tower, Carl was given a new job offer. Ben needed a commander for the GLPD's SWAT team. Seeing it as similar to his old Commando Unit in a way, Carl accepted, breaking out the balaclava he would wear on his commando missions to add to his uniform.
Minutiae's closest planetary neighbors, the binary worlds of Candor and Calumny are perfect opposites. While Candor rotates clockwise, Calumny rotates counter clockwise. Their positions in regard to their sun means Candor's day is Calumny's night, and vice versa. Even the behaviors of their people are polar opposites. Candorites always tell the truth, while Calumnians never tell the truth. Candorites have blue hair, while Calumnians have red hair and eyes,
Candor is a great center of trade, thanks to their truthfulness. Minutiae has had relations with them for hundreds of thousands of cycles. the Explorato Academy has a facility on Candor, for off-world training missions. A young explorato cadet named Micron Morphicron spent several months training her, and where his reputation as a ladies man truly began.
The life span of the average Candorite is comparable to Earth humans, though some have longer lifespans thanks to relationships with Minutiaeians. Candorites with Minutiaeian heritage, some seven generations removed, have been known to live as long as 1,000 Earth years.
Candor has numerous species of native fauna, many of which are kept as pets. One of the most popular species for this are amphians. frog-like creatures that can be well trained. They can jump up to six feet off the ground, with an average lifespan of 25 years.
By contrast, Calumny is practically isolationist, since their inability to tell the truth kept other species from knowing exactly what they meant. This as solved, with help from Minutiaeian and Candorite science, when a truth translator was developed. Any Calumnian leaving the planet has to use one of these. The translations are not always perfect, of course, since a lie is not always the perfect opposite of the truth.
Legends says that everyone on Candor has a doppelganger on Calumny, and if they should ever make physical contact, their lives would be as one. Feeling each other's pains, knowing each other's thoughts and emotions. As of yet, no one for either world has met their opposite number to see if this is true.
