Alan Scott, locomotive engineer/train operator, is the sole survivor of a train derailment. Moments before the crash, the train was struck with what appears to be a meteor. It is, in fact, The Starheart, an otherworldly gem containing the spiritual fragments of The Twelve Facets of Gemworld–the legendary creators of that world. The resulting explosion destroyed the Starheart, forcing the fragments to seek a new host. They chose Alan Scott. In the blink of an eye, he found himself transported to the mysterious land of Gemworld where he was discovered and rescued from the train wreckage by a young woman–who he would later discover was actually another survivor from the crash–Amy Winston, AKA Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld.
