Vegeta, well until he met Goku, was the strongest saiya-jin known for his incredible power and strength at such a young age. His father King Vegeta was killed by Freeza along with all the other Saiya-jins on Planet Vegeta (the Saiya-jins home planet). Vegeta was Freeza's servant, partnering up with Nappa, destroyed planets for Freeza and did what he told him. He knew that Freeza had killed his father. But all he said was, "so", and went on like nothing happened. He planned on getting stronger and stronger until he was strong anough to beat Freeza, but he wouldn't try until he was for shore he could win. Vegeta is sent to Earth on one of Freeza's missions. He meets Goku and finds that he isn't so tuff as he thought.Goku has surpassed him so he flees in his spaceship. After that he always fights to become stronger than all the other z fighters. He succeed some of the times but Goku or Gohan would pass him in the next few episodes. Vegeta is a one of the most strongest Saiya-jins and has the pride to become the strongest. He marries Bulma, but doesn't show much love between them. Later on, he has Trunks, then after that his daughter Bra. The first time he hugs trunks is when he is almost 9 and is about to die, a very sad moment ;.;(i almost cried). But Vegeta is always looking for a new and harder challenge and will never give up till he's dead. Vegeta appears in DBZ and DBGT and is the most exciting character in DBZ.
Future Trunks is trunks in the "other future" it is rather hard to explain. In the "other future" all the other z fighters die, Gohan and Trunks (the only survivors because of Android #18 and Android #17) train to beat the Androids. After intense training Trunks turns super saiya-jin, over Gohan's death. In the end, he still isn't strong anough to beat the Androids. Bulma (his mother) makes a time machine (called hope!) to send him into the past. So he goes back in time, to find Cyborg Freeza arrive on earth. He beats King Cold and cyborg Freeza. Then fights the Androids but fails. Cell absorbs the Androids, and he fails again to find victory against Cell. He does reach ultimate super saiya-jin during the fight with Cell, when Cell almost kills Vegeta, but it only slows down his speed and increases his power. He returns to the future a little after Chibi Trunks is born and appears in dbz at times.
Vegeta and Bulma's son, Chibi Trunks has extraordinary power at a young age. He becomes a super saiya-jin at age 8 and always is around Goten (Goku and Chichi's 2nd son).They are best of friends and tend to get themselves into some trouble often. He merges with Goten to make Gotenks to kill Majin Buu but fails. He only reaches super saiya-jin 3 when he fuses with Goten.He always wanted a brother like Goten. In movie 13, he pretends Tapion is his older brother which makes him very happy.
Tapion, known as "legend of the brave" is from the planet Konack. A demon called Hildegarn was destroying his planet. Him and his brother (Minoshia) play a song on a ocarina that stops Hildegarn in his tracks. Tapion chops him in half. Hoi possess him and the upper half of Hildegarn is trapped inside him. He is put in an oracle and sent away as far away from Minoshia (which has the lower half of Hildegarn in him).He has a ocarina and a sword (reminds me of Link). Hoi brings Tapion to Earth and is released by Shenlon, from his oracle. Hildegarn is released from him and it raids the city and Goku and the z fighters fight against Hildegarn and... well u know what happens. Tapion gives Chibi Trunks his sword which he is seen with when he comes back from the future.
Minoshia appears in movie 13, not much but anough to make a bio, he is Tapion's younger brother (also from the planet Konack).As along with Tapion he fights Hildegarn and is possesed and has the lower half inside him. Hoi gets ahold of his oracle, which he is concealed in, and releass lower Hildegarn.Soon after that Minoshia is killed, stepped on, rather tragic. He is remembered as "legend of the brave" and is a loyal hero.
A black magician, along with other of its race, released Hildegarn from statue form. It destroyed planet Konack.He gets his hands on the oracle that holds Tapion and Minoshia. He releases both, ending in Minoshia's death and Tapions release from the oracle. He is killed by his own creation, Hildegarn, he is stepped on also, like Minoshia.
A demon which was originally a statue was born by a unknown race, one which was Hoi. Hildegarn raided Planet Konack and was finally concealed by Tapion and Minoshia. He becomes complete on planet Earth which he raids also and destroys some things. He is killed by Goku using the ryu ken (dragon fist).
