When a Guardian of the Universe (Herupa Hando Hu) and his Zamaron mate (Nadia Safir) came to Earth to choose their successors, they super-evolved ten human beings giving them powers and immortality, and united them as the Chosen, progenitors of the next step in humanity's evolution. When one of the chosen, Janwillem Kroef, decided he could not live in a world where the racially and sexually diverse Chosen represented humanity, he created a race of neo-hybrids to destroy them. After the neo-hybrids, called the New Order, were released from Kroef's dark thrall by a reluctant Tom Kalmaku, it was revealed that it was the hybrids who were the true Chosen. The New Guardians settled on Kroef's South African compound to teach the neo-hybrids the true meaning of peaceful co-existence on earth.
