In a nearby dimension, the battle between good and evil rages on with all of Existence teetering in the balance. Dimension 49632 is the home of 11 special dragons which, when together, are the key to opening the 'gate of all gates.' The gate that gives access to ALL dimensions, the Vertex...Hyperion Elderman is the last guardian of these dragons. He and his two children were all that remained of his people. Their dimension was crumbling around them due to the never-ending onslaught of the evil entity Parallax, who, in his boredom, loves nothing more than to create chaos, death, and destruction. This small dimension was not enough for him and he wanted more, he wanted access to ALL the dimensions, and to get that he needed control of the Vertex… but Hyperion stood in his way. As an act of revenge, Parallax killed Hyperion's two children sending their souls into the afterlife. In a final act of desperation, Hyperion gathered up the 11 dragons in order to open up the gateway to dimension 49633 also known as ‘Earth.’ Entering the Vertex allows the traveler to see all dimensions at once. This is where Hyperion saw his children one last time... in the afterlife. "I couldn't protect you in life, so I shall bestow upon you this dragon so that he may watch over you in the afterlife...", he says tearfully and gave them one of the dragons to protect them, since he could not. In the process of crossing this dimension, his youth was sacrificed. Therefore, when he continued onto Earth’s dimensional gate, he arrives as an old man, and to his surprise, the 12 dragons that he once possessed were now 12 tiny kittens. His plan was simple... separate the dragons/kittens from each other to close the gate. For he knew that if the Kats were ever to be in proximity of each other again, Parallax could enter the Vertex, and all would be doomed...
Dim and Bonita Bones, Fifi (Kat), and Rex (Dragon)
Bonita and Dim Bones were from the same dimension as Hyperion, in fact, they were Hyperion’s children before they were killed by Parallax. Once they were cast into the dimension of the dead, they lost all memory of their real identities and had to take on new names. H.E. was supposed to protect them, but parallax killed them as revenge for not allowing him access to the vertex, the gateway leading to all the other dimensions unlocked by the 11 dragons. In order, to protect the multi-dimensions, Hyperion took ten of the kats and split them up on Earth amongst the child guardians but left the final key with Bonita and Dim Bones in the dimension of the dead to keep them from ever being in the same location and reopening the vertex. Because once the gate is open, parallax could slip through and destroy all. Hyperion felt so guilty for losing his two children that he gave them everlasting life in the dimension of the dead and made them the guardians of Fifi the kat and Rex the dragon, the last key(s) to keeping the universe safe.
