In this particular context, Elseworlds is a series of stories:
What ifs...worlds that could have been if someone had decided differently, chosen a different path. Better and worse worlds. Worlds brought into being by an enigmatic human in purple robes...manipulating history for reasons known only to him or her, seeking to prevent a future event, an event that intimately involves our friends, the cast of Ranma 1/2. Someone is going to die that Purple Robes would rather see live among that cast, but the harder Purple Robes yanks the skeins of time, the harder they slip from her/his grasp...
His/her manipulations trigger a series of alternate timelines explored in the stories of the Ranma Elseworlds Series.
