Backlog: Life on Antar
Antar was at war... had been for generations.
King Zan, his sister Vilandra and his best friend and second in command Rath had all been trained from the time they were children in the arts of combat.
They were fierce warriors, but also compassionate rulers. They saw the greed and snobbery of the Aristocracy around them as a plague. They knew it was the cause of all the recent wars and that it would spell an end to their world if it wasn't remedied soon.
King Zan tried to implement democratic reforms. Slowly giving more power to the people while shifting it away from the planets Aristocracy. Among the planets rulers he ultimately reigned supreme, but he spent his life navigating the quagmire of politics with lesser dignitaries who could garner the support of a portion of his planet and try and take his position.
In an effort to stop one such rebellion he agreed to marry Ava the daughter of Khivar. In an effort to prevent Khivar from asking for his sisters hand in marriage, he betrothed her to his second. Even though he knew there were no romantic feelings between the two such was the life in politics.
At the reception of his wedding, his new bride and her father betrayed him and attacked. It was King Zan himself who took Ava's life for her betrayal but by the time the dust cleared Khivar was left standing and Zan, Rath, Vilandra were all dead, Ava had been the only casualty from his side.
Zan and Vilandra's mother who had been late to the reception stumbled across the aftermath. Seeing Ava dead she assumed she had not been part of the betrayal. She arranged for the "Royal Four" to be cloned, hybridized and sent to earth.
Life on earth:
Max, Michael, & Isabel all emerged from their pods with the memories of their past life intact.
When the Evan's headlights appeared on the road Michael hid, ready to ambush if anything went wrong. But this tactic ended up getting the three separated.
Then things progress like in the cannon, however, because they have all their memories, they know who they are and where they come from, instead of having and inferiority complex and thinking they're monsters, and being afraid like on the show; they have a slight superiority complex (not to much of one though because they hate snobbery and aristocracy), they've all been trained by the best for combat against aliens with powers so they're confident that they could handle anyone from Earth that would dare try to capture them.
In the third grade, Max falls in love with Liz just before being reunited with Michael. They don't make any rules pact (they're confident they don't need one). Max immediately starts planning Liz courtship, he's determined that she will one day be his new queen.
The Challenge is to write that courtship.
Points of Interest:
--At some point when Mrs. Evans is in danger (Think something like the fire in Toy House, but feel free to be creative.) Max saves her and they tell their parents a portion of the truth. (We're special, we have special gifts, that's part of the reason we were in the desert the night you found us, please keep it a secret so no one comes around to try to treat us like lab rats, we can defend ourselves if necessary but we'd rather not be put in that situation... They never use the words Alien or Antar or anything but after that they do use there powers freely around their parents.) This can be at any point in the time-line from while they are kids before they go to school to during their high school years.
--The first time Michael comes to Max's window, because of Hank, Max tells his parents about it and that Michael was out in the desert with them the day they were found. As a result the Evan's sue for custody and get it. Michael refuses to change his name because he doesn't think it would be appropriate to have the same last name of his king. This should be somewher in the timeline before highscool.
--Max isn't the shy loner type. He's self-confident and has an presence of authority about him that makes him the leader of his social circle. He Michael and Isabel are like the three musketeers - Inseparable. They have a large circle of friends from across the social strata and they real friends as opposed to the superficial kind.
Like I mentioned earlier Max, Michael, and Isabel have a real problem with snobbery so they quickly earned a reputation for sticking up for the underdogs. When the jocks were being bullies they interfered. When the popular crowd or the geeks or any other cliche started pulling pranks they interfered.
However, it's not only the underdogs they stood up for. The have a really strong sense of right and wrong. If someone of smaller stature start calling a jock names and picking on him, when the jock finally responds with violence they wouldn't interfere because they figured the guy was asking for it. The only interfered when someone was being hurt what they considered unjustly.
They are very friendly and polite to anyone who doesn't pick on others.
--Max's planned courtship (given that in the third grade they're too young to even date) includes becoming her friend first and telling her his secret after they get close but before they start dating, and the dating starts in junior high.
--Tess should exist but Max knows that Zan's unconsummated marriage to Ava dissolved at death, that he gets to choose his own queen. You can choose when she comes to town.
--Max, Michael, and Isabel are all capable of protecting themselves from mindwarps (You can't rule a planet very effectively if you are susceptible to being controlled by anyone with that particular gift).
--This is a dreamer challenge, the rest of the couples can be as conventional or unconventional as you'd like.
