When Magnus Takariyama by chance arrived to reality 09, a Millennia before the appearance of google boy Tsurugi and his firneds. Clavis Angemon summoned Magnus to the Digiworld despite Magnus was supposed to have landed in the Digiworld from reality 12 and gave him the task of defeating a digimon called Quartzmon which arrived from nowhere and was attempting to take possession of Yggdrasil.fav.me/dap6ily
Several digidestineds that were summoned before the lad ended all failing to accomplish the mission and became preys of Quartzmon themselves!
One of the captive digidestineds was Hikaru Kamiya. A 14 year old guy from the Taishō period who learned too soon about the harshness of life. Having grown up without a father and being the eldest child, he always took it upon himself help his widowed mother raise his 5 younger siblings. Everyday he would diligently deliver newspapers before going to school….
One day he was magically transported to another world and became a Digidestined. He was granted a Leomon as his partner and clicked almost immediately.
Leomon was adamant about his duty as a fighter and Hikaru proved to be as equally committed to the mission as well.
Hikaru proved to be the most mature member of the digidestined team and was often relied more as a leader than the google boy in turn. Not that the google boy minded at all but his reliability would often provoke another Digidestined´s jealousy, Haruki Kuremi (future Keruta and Kyoko Kuremi´s reality 09 male counterpart) which ended bringing misfortune over the entire group when they eventually failed to defeat Quartzmon.
Quartzmon kept them trapped for such a long time and was about to consume Yggdrasil´s Core that Clavis Angemon, the closest angel to the Computer Host at that time, had no choice but to summon another digidestined in order to free them and finish the job. Hence Magnus Takariyama from reality 012 was brought to the Digiworld from reality 09…
Magnus´s unexpected death and Akarimon´s grief marked deeply Hikaru and Leomon´s hearts and they ended blaming themselves for not being there when it happened and wondered if had they been stronger…if they weren´t captured by Quartzmon Magnus would had lived.
When it was time to go back home Hikaru and Leomon manifested the same words: IF ONLY I´D BEEN STRONGER..!
Akarimon, despite the grief, assumed her new role as Yggdrasil´s closest guardian in Clavis Angemon´s name (who also passed away) and sent the digidestineds back home. The Digiworld was in peace again and it lasted for almost a millennia so the Taisho Era digidestineds were never summoned again…
Hikarugrew up, went ahead with his life and would occasionally share about his time as a digidestined with his grandchildren. But his heart never forgot about the tragedy and his wish remained the same: become stronger.
When he passed away in his 80s his spirit was transported to another reality, Reality 01and was reborn as an angel Digimon…Hikari Yagami´s future Angewomon!
Leomon, meanwhile, lived his good life until he passed away when Barbamon began his awful campaign and died fighting against the Black Knight´s minions.
Instead of being reborn immediately as a digiegg, this Leomon´s soul was dragged to another Digiworld, from reality 02, (the V-Tamer reality) and was reborn as Lord Angemon´s most loyal Leomon. While he consciously remembers nothing about his past life his obsession about becoming stronger never faded…
