Eons ago, Hephaestus, blacksmith of Olympus, was married to Aphrodite, Goddess of love and procreation. The Goddess however was an unfaithful wife who didn't even bother to hide her infidelities. Hephaestus had caught her many times in the company of gods and mortals, including his brother Ares, the God of war and savagery.

Fed up with his wife's unfaithfulness, Hephaestus decided to take matters into his own hands. With the help of Eros, the primordial deity of desire, who took pity on the ugly son of Zeus and Hera, the God of blacksmiths forged a powerful jewel that he intended to offer to his wife. Once she would have started wearing it, the powerful artifact would make sure the Goddess only had eyes for her husband.

Unfortunately for Hephaestus, Adonis, one of Aphrodite's many consorts, had assisted discretely to his craftsmanship. Hoping to please the Goddess, Adonis immediately reported her husband's intentions to Aphrodite. After thanking her lover appropriately, the Goddess of love confronted the blacksmith of the Gods and forced him to get rid of his present.

Forged with the combined might of Eros and Hephaestus, the jewel was however too powerful to be safely disposed of. To this day, it had been sealed away in a pocket dimension. As time flew by, it's power increased to the point that the jewel had acquired a conscience and was able to find its way out of its prison.

Nowadays, the jewel takes the form of a button that one clips on his clothes, displaying a round white face with a red circle and a slash over the image of a broken Valentine's Day heart. It is known to those who are aware of its existence as the Anti-Broken Hearts Pin.

When attached to a person, the Pin has the power to make copies of said individual, one for all of their love interests or potential romantic matches. Every copy comes with its own unique traits and history to make it the ideal match for the partner they are intended for, as well as an unearthly desire and need for the targeted love interest. The Anti-Broken Hearts Pin goes as far as altering a person's hair or skin color, their skills and superpowers, their character and propensity towards good or evil, even their ancestry and individual history. Every copy is ready to do anything and everything to satisfy its lover.

The original person however is destroyed in the process and the pin disappears to find its next subject.

As Hephaestus has divorced from Aphrodite and remarried to Aglaea, a minor divinity of beauty, the Pin's original purpose is no more. So now, it wanders through the Multiverse, looking for a new reason to its existence. In its travels, the Anti-Broken Hearts Pin stumbles upon a particular Universe...
