They are a couple. They had a two year old daughter named Madeline who they loved very dearly. One day, they heard her scream. They went to check on her in their backyard, but instead they found the Zylon Dragon. They at first thought she had turned into a dragon, but then they realized she had been eaten. They tried calling for her through the dragon's stomach, but the toddler had already been digested. They were so distraught they decided never to have children again. In the alternate universe, they never met, and as a result, she was never born or conceived.
