A World Without End
The Rorensons and helmetcats
The Rorensons began as a poor family of cobblers in Bavaria, but have become fabulously rich and powerful as a result of their relationship with helmetcats and their tampering with Earth’s timestream. Roren Rorenson is the patriarch of the family. Ulrikke Rorenson invented the ubiquitous Serv-Bots. Taraz is the youngest son. His untimely death in the original timestream was the trigger for Roren to recycle time to have a happier outcome.
The helmetcats are directly tied with the Rorensons, who invented the helmet. The alpha helmetcat is sent back in time to affect events whenever a new cycle is needed. They have created 437 new cycles to date, always attempting to improve the Rorenson family or fortunes.
