Freiezeit is a dimension where time and space and knowledge are fluid and they are seen in many ways to be one. While certain aspects of it has an old-world feel, it is an extremely advanced scientific society. The residents are non-corporeal. Energy beings who have gained such power over their own consciousnesses as to be able to be transported across dimensions with the help of energy transference technology, if needed, though a host native to the dimension is required, and is only able to be separated by being retrieved or death of the host.

The dimension has been ruled by a hereditary monarchy for what humans would call a millennium. Time flows differently here, so millennium is a loose term. This has been considered an historically successful governing body, However in recent times it has had its difficulties.

In Freiezit, reproduction leads to twin births in the majority of propagation. Although individual births are not entirely unheard of. The last ruler or Freiezeit, Big Caeser, rose to power as per normal traditions. Their rule was contested by their twin sibling, Little Caeser, who was annoyed with what they considered the stagnation of the empire. Big Caeser successfully defended their seat of power in legal standing. This situation was untenable for Little Caeser who then recruited other minor noble twins who also felt overlooked in the empire. They struck out in open rebellion.

Little Caeser struck a deal with the beings in the dimension of Tartusuria. When the invasion forces of Tartusuria struck, Big Caeser sent their twin heirs to another dimension. The heir regent's essence was sent across the dimensions, along with the king's most trusted advisor, to be safe. A guard of the highest order was to go with them, and he was ready for the trip, but at the last moment, Lord Draxion, of Tartusuia, forces deflected the guard’s essence away from earth, trapping him within a prison made of rock in space. The heir regent’s twin was lost and has not been recovered until this day.

When the advisor reached Earth, they inhabited the body of a man known as Burt Remington. The advisor also found that he had been separated from his regent. Because of the fluidity of time, the two had accidentally been sent to different eras. Unable to find him anywhere, the advisor settled into life on the planet and joined with the Earth's heroes of the time so that, when he eventually found his ward, they could aid in his protection. He eventually took a human wife and the two had a son that was named after his father. After the Legion of Champions disbanded, Burt aided in the formation of a new group: the Champions of Justice.

About five years after the formation of the CoJ, Burt Sr. sensed the presence of another of his kind, but so had the enemy, Lord Draxion. The Champions of Justice went to the Arizona town that Burt led them to. They tracked the person down, a Starchild girl named Angel, and had her evaced by Banshee. Burt was picking up a secondary presence as well, but before he could investigate further, Draxion teleported the town to Tatursuria in an attempt to capture the Starchild. The Champions fought to protect the child and the town. They managed to reverse Draxion’ warp machine, but at a cost; Burt Remington Sr. died before he could reveal the identity of the Freizeitan they were protecting or the fact that there was a second presence. Neither the Heir Regent northeir Guardian would learn that there was indeed a second Starchild, Matthew Star.

As Remington died, the Freiezeitin Advisor transferred his essence to the body of Burt’s biological son, a college aged young man. While he returned to Arizona to investigate the secondary presence, eventually deciding that it must have been an echo effect. When the Heir Regent fully emerged in Angel a few years later, Burt Jr. fully adopted the girl and worked to teach her what it was like to be human. Before long, though, the Advisor and the Regent were summoned home with the end of the war, leaving the Burt Jr. and Angel to adapt to a world without the Freiezeit presence in their lives. The Champions, for their part, found the situation perplexing but accepted everything at face value.

The small meteorite containing the essence of the guard eventually fell to Earth, where it was found by Bryce Janus. While the guardian was unable to transfer their essence from the rock, they were able to grant their human friend with powers and abilities beyond mortal man, becoming Meteorite and also joining the Champions of Justice.

The Heir Regent has been installed as monarch and now rules in their predicessor's stead. They took a mate and, in time, had twins of their own. When they came of age, the Regent prepared them for their own journey to earth, to learn what it means to be human. It was only after they were dispersed that the Heir Regent realized the time displacement that had affected them and the Advisor was still active, separating the twins through time and space. One found themselves in the body of a boy named Matthew Starr in Arizona, only to be captured by an American black ops agency (Project Titan) instead of taken in by Remington. The other arrived several years later and, calling itself Princess, was initially trapped in the subconscious mind of a fae. The two were eventually reunited and, once freed from the fae mind and put into the body of a new volunteer, now travel the world, trying to figure out what their parent thought was so great about it.

To this day, very few realize that when the Heir Regent inhabited “Starchild” Angel arrived on earth, their future progeny from Freiezeit would arrive and reside in Matthew Star at the very same time. It was all timey-wimey and very headache-inducing to those who thought too hard about it.
