In 1991, a Gorma named Shadam (although he was unknowingly a false recreation of Shadam) seduced and impregnated a member of the Dai Tribe. His original intention was to use her to spawn a powerful offspring, with a mixture of Gorma and Dai powers, but he fell in love with her. Or perhaps he was just obsessed with her. The Dai woman gave birth to twins, Kou and Akomaru. No one knew she gave birth to twins. In the Gorma tradition, the weaker of the twins is killed so that all the energy is transferred to the stronger. She couldn't let that happen. She fled with Kou, believing him to be the stronger. She left Akomaru in the care of Dai tribe survivors in hopes that their healers would help him to grow strong. But the Gorma found Akomaru and took him. She knew that someday the Gorma would try to find her again. She also feared that they might be drawn to Kou’s power as they were to Akomaru’s. She placed a tiger brand on Kou to seal the energy inside of him so he could not be found, then she fled.

Azreanna: A Edenyte. Member of the resistance on Edenoi.
Zordon: Zordon served as a soldier in Lord Zedd’s empire more than 1.7-million years ago. He was young and did not realize the empire was evil and oppressive. Zordon broke away from the empire, became a Ranger, and started a resistance movement against Lord Zedd. Zordon left his homeworld of Eltar and fought evil across the galaxy. He followed the evil spirit DaiSatan to Earth. Zordon tapped into the One Power to create mighty beasts to fight against DaiSatan and his witch Bandora. The Ryujinn, an ancient race that lived alongside the dinosaurs, named these beasts “zords” after Zordon. Zordon created a set of Power Coins that allowed six Ryujinn to harness the power of the Dinozords and become Rangers. With the Rangers’ help, Zordon banished DaiSatan from the mortal plane. But Bandora placed a curse on Zordon that separated his consciousness from his body. Zordon used the One Power to communicate with the Ryujinn and enlist their help in building a Command Chamber. Zordon used the Command Chamber to appear as a holographic projection. He used a mix of Eltarian technology and magick to create the android Alpha-5 as an assistant in the Command Chamber.
Eltar: A planet near the Galactic Core, often thought of as the hub of trade and commerce across the galaxy. The planet had two main races, the human-like Eltarians and the elf-like Moon Elves. Zordon was from this world, which had one of the few remaining mage academies and praxiums in the galaxy.
Government- The planet was governed by the Eltarian Court, which had a five-member Ruling Council. The Ruling Council was the executive branch of the planetary government. The other two branches of the Eltarian Court were the legislative Parliament and the judiciary Judges of Thymis. Eltar had four main continents divided into 13 peripheries, which were further divided into 54 prefectures.
Capital- Zygria. A description of the capital city: “A Greco-Roman type city within a valley. A network of waterways and canals stemmed from a massive, flat-topped pyramid in the center of the city. A dome-shaped building, surrounded by columns, rested on the top of the structure. The pyramid was made of the same tan-colored marble as the city's other buildings, most of which had columned, elaborate entryways and rooftops of deep emerald. The city was dotted with spots of greenspace, which were decorated with trees and statues.”
Religion - The main religion of the planet was the Church of the Light. The Church of the Light was more of a philosophy, in that its followers didn't worship a specific deity. They followed the Light, the force of good in the universe. The Church of the Light was established after Zordon defeated and imprisoned Lord Zedd. The Church of the Light was to ensure that the shadow of evil would never again fall on the world. The Church of the Light replaced the Church of the One God, which was the dominant religion before Lord Zedd conquered the world as part of his empire of evil. The Church of the One God and its beliefs were brought to Eltar by invading forces from the planet Zarkadia, homeworld of Lord Zedd, before Zedd fully turned to the forces of evil. The Church of the One God still exists, but its followers are only about a third in number compared to the Church of the Light. Before the Church of the One God, the people of Eltar worshiped a pantheon of gods similar to the Greek gods on Earth. Some still worship the pantheon of gods. The Moon Elves worshiped the Goddess of the Moon, Alune, who they believed saved them from being wiped out by Sauron eons ago, at the beginning of recorded time.
Races- The native species were Eltarians and Moon Elves. The Eltarians appear human. The Moon Elves were said to be the first humanoid race to evolve on Eltar. Their skin was tinted with shades of blue or violet. They had long, pointed ears. They were mostly secluded on a northern continent but took part in the planet’s government and economics.
Edenoi: Once a planet of artisans, scholars, and teachers. The planet was governed by the Five Great Houses, which were presided over by the Royal House. A member of the Royal House named Count Dregon abolished the Five Great Houses as part of a military coup. He wiped out most of the planet and turned the population into slaves to mine for gases beneath the planet’s surface. The gases were toxic to the planet’s atmosphere once unleashed. The toxins turned the surface into a wasteland.
Eltarians: Appear human. Inhabitants of Eltar.
Edenytes: Appear human. Inhabitants of Edenoi. Nearly extinct following the collapse of their society at the hands of Count Dregon. Most Edenytes are slaves.
Moon Elves: Said to be the first humanoid race to evolve on Eltar. Their skin is tinted with shades of blue or violet. They have long, pointed ears. They are mostly secluded on a northern continent but take part in the planet’s government and economics.
Teegrai: Tiger-like humanoids. Their true homeworld was unknown, even to them. For as long as any of them could remember, their people had been slaves. Many of the Teegrai had broken free from their slave traders and vowed to fight oppression and slavery everywhere in the galaxy.
