History: Aelfyre Whitemane, who went by the nickname "Whitey," was a Kymellian, a member of an alien race dwelling somewhere in the Milky Way Galaxy. Whitey was a scientist whose field was the study of alien races, and his first assignment was the observation of Earth's human beings. He carried out this assignment by monitoring Earth communications transmissions and by tapping into Earth computers from his sentient starship, called a "smartship."

Through monitoring Earth computers, Whitey learned that the scientist Dr. James Power had discovered a method of converting matter to anti-matter without impractically large expenditures of energy. Power's machine, which he called a matter/antimatter converter, would also cause antimatter to contact matter under controlled conditions.

In ages past the Kymellians had discovered the same matter/antimatter conversion process, but they had tested it without realizing that they had not yet mastered all of the physics that the process involved. As a result, they had unwittingly set off a chain reaction that had destroyed their planet, killing all the Kymellians living upon it. However, there were many Kymellians living on space stations and on planets they had colonized, so the race survived. Whitey feared that the testing of Dr. Power's matter/antimatter converter might similarly destroy the Earth, and he sent a message to the Kymellians telling them of Power's discovery and asking permission to warn Power of the conversion process's dangers despite Kymellian laws against interference with alien races.

The message was intercepted by the Z'nrx, a reptilian race from another galaxy whom Whitey called "Snarks." The Sharks intended to use Power's matter/antimatter conversion process as a weapon for conquering their own galaxy, and shot down Whitey's smartship. Damaged, the smartship landed on Earth near Dr. Power's home. The Sharks .then kidnapped Dr. Power and his wife Margaret, intending to force them to reveal the formula for the matter/antimatter conversion process.

Dr. Power's four children found Whitey's smartship, and two of them, Alex and Katie, met Whitey himself. Whitey used his powers to rescue the two other children, Jack and Julia, from the Snarks, but in doing so, Whitey was mortally wounded by a blast from a Snark laser gun.

A Kymellian can transfer his powers to another Kymellian. Whitey decided to try to divide his powers among the four children, so that they could escape the Snarks and stop the converter from being activated. Aelfyre Whitemane initiated the transfer of power to the children and then died, vanishing from sight. The children soon discovered that they each now had one of Whitey's superhuman powers; although the powers did not function in exactly the same way that they did for Whitey. Using their powers and their own wits, the Power children escaped the Snarks, destroyed the converter, and rescued their parents. The Power children, calling themselves the Power Pack, still operate as adventurers today.

Strength Level: Aelfyre Whitemane possessed the normal strength of a Kymellian of his age, height, and build who engaged in moderate regular exercise. It is not known exactly how this strength compares to that of a human being.

Known Superhuman Powers: All Kymellians are born with the potential to absorb and project energy, by altering the molecular density of matter, to move themselves at superhuman speed through teleportation or flight, and to vary or reverse gravitational attraction. However, a Kymellian must spend years of training to develop real skill with these abilities. A Kymellian who does so is called a "sorcerer" by the Snarks, although these powers are not magical in nature. Having devoted his life to science, Aelfyre Whitemane had not engaged in the continual training necessary to develop his powers fully.
