Rex Salazar is the protagonist of the Cartoon Network series "Generator Rex".
Born as the second son to Rafael and Violeta Salazar in Switzerland Geneva, both of his parents and older brother, Caesar were brilliant scientists who traveled around the world before Rex's birth. During his childhood, Rex spent every summer in a small South American town, where he played with his best friend, Federico.
However Rex was fatally injured in an industrial accident during the nanite event, due to a dispute between many scientists about how the nanites were to be used. Violeta, Caesar, Rafael and Gabriel Rylander injected Rex with the batch of fully programmed nanites hoping that it would save Rex's life. Though it was a major success Rex recieved abilities which reinforced their beliefs. By blind luck, Rex, Gabriel, and Caesar managed to survive the Nanite Event, While Rafael and Violeta were killed due to the massive nanite explosion it caused.
Later, assumed to be caused by the explosion, Rex had gained amnesia and traveled to Hong Kong and befriended three incurable EVOs Tuck, Skwydd, and Cricket.
