|~ Ransik to Nadira|
Ransik is the main antagonist of Power Rangers: Time Force.
Ransik was created by the very people he seeks to destroy. In the future, children are born in labs, with traits designated by their parents. Ransik is a product of this tampering, born from an accident in a lab: During one of genetic enhancement sessions, one of embryonic vials that containing embryonic biomass unexpectedly fell and shatters, spilling the contains to a drain where the staff believed that the biomass would died out due to exposure to outside world.
However, instead of died out, the environment around the said spilled biomass(which is sewers) unexpectedly causing it to mutate, and from amalgamation of that mutated biomass, a full-grown adult man was born. Possibly due to inherited memories of his parents' DNA donor, the creature, whom named himself Ransik, developed intelligence equivalent with that of full-grown man, but was forced to raised himself in the underground, rejected from society. As the first mutant, he organized factions of other mutants to take the world away from those who fear and hate his kind. He also presumably married to a female mutant where from their union, Nadira was born. Who was Ransik's wife and Nadira's mother is not revealed at all in the series.
While roaming the dark parts of the city, he found three statues which were actually imprisoned Orgs. Since they had the same goal as him, to destroy humanity, Ransik set them free. The Org spirits copied his DNA and created bodies for themselves, making them Mut-Orgs. In exchange for freeing them, the Mutorgs gave Ransik the power to pull weapons from his body.
At one point before he organized factions of evil mutants, Ransik was bitten by the poisonous mutant known as Venomark. Alone and dying, Ransik was taken in by Dr. Fericks, who developed a serum which Ransik would need to take for life. Ransik turned on Dr. Fericks, stealing the serum and his Cyclobot technology, and laying waste to the lab. Dr. Fericks later survived the explosion, and became Frax. It should be noted that it's not just Ferricks whom feels pity on the mutant, as Jen stated many people tried to help him in spite the mere sight of his hideous look would terrify anyone who see it, but Ransik was too much consumed by hatred that reaching him was extremely difficult that made him denied any help from humans.
From there on he carry out his plan to conquer the world and wipe out humanity. But due to Time Force Rangers countered his evil plans, he resorts to went back in time with his army to conquer the world in the past, only for the Rangers to followed him and countered his evil plans.
In 2001, In what would be his last battle against the Power Rangers, Ransik injured Nadira, mistaking her for the Pink Ranger. Upon discovering this, Ransik was horrified at what he did and he realized that his hatred of humans had to end, because it only causes more suffering. He then turned himself over to Time Force.
A year after incarceration, Ransik was called on by Time Force to aid them against a new threat - the Mut-Orgs due to history between himself and them. He agreed to help Rangers, and travelled to the year 2002, where the Mut-Orgs went to ally themselves with Master Org. Before they start to hunt the Mut-Orgs, Ransik tells all the Rangers his story about how he unleashed them in the future, and revealed that the Mut-Orgs bestowed him powers to turn any part of his body into weapon. He also reveals that he's already seen the error of his ways, especially the Mut-Orgs' existence. Just as the Mut-Orgs powered up their Spirit Bomb attack, Ransik, who was determined to fix his mistake, threw himself on them, causing an explosion which destroyed their mutant halves, allowing the Rangers to defeat them. The explosion also destroyed Ransik's mutant half, making him wholly human.
Personality & TraitsEdit
As result of mistreatments and being shunned by society due to his hideous nature, Ransik developed into a homicidal, sadistic, wrathful, and destructive force to be reckoned with. He also self-centered, egocentric, and only focused on his plans for world domination, treating everyone around him except for Nadria like an expendable pawn. He can also described to be ruthless and cunning and has a hatred towards both humans and robots. Whereas he viewed robots as wasted metal that he can abuse, his hatred on normal humans are thousand fold worse: Due to his hideous appearance, the mere sight on his deformed face instantly scared anyone who see him, which also resulting society shunned him and had to endure their mistreatments. He later met other mutants whom also born in the same way with his, and less fortunate due to having inhuman appearance.
Despite being ruthless, Ransik shows a loving side towards his daughter Nadira that his desire to rule the world was second only to his fatherly instincts. When he found out Nadria developed a crush on Lucas, despite being upset about the news at first due to him and Lucas supposedly enemies (as Lucas was happened to be Blue Ranger), he ultimately went with her decision to date him, even visiting Lucas and giving him dating advice, albeit in a twisted and somewhat violent manner. He did however, give Lucas gifts to give to Nadria to help him impress her. In exchange for this, he threatened Lucas if he didn't treat Nadira well he would end him. He also spied on them during the date and reminded Lucas to give her the presents he gave him and later feigned ignorance when Nadira told him about the date so the credit of giving Nadira a wonderful date would go entirely to Lucas. He also even went as far as to forbid his minions from harming Lucas during the brief period they dated. Despite being Ransik's enemy at the time and not fearing Ransik himself, Lucas both feared and respected Ransik's instincts as a father and despite wanting to break up with Nadria he was afraid to out of fear of facing Ransik for doing so.
Ransik's fatherly instincts turned out served as his first step for redemption after nearly killing Nadira with his own hands, having finally seen the error of his ways, he sought redemption just like his daughter did shortly before him. After his change of heart, he referred to the Rangers as his friends and nearly sacrificed himself to stop the Mut-Orgs. Afterwards, he was shown to still dislike Nadira's intentions towards Lucas but seemed more accepting of them. Ransik was notable for being one of the more serious Power Rangers villains. Whereas most villains in Power Rangers are melodramatic, burlesque characters, Ransik, like Astronema was much more a cold, calculating mastermind with a penchant for convoluted Machiavellian evil schemes, often going for more realistic crimes such as bribery and stealing large amounts of money.
Ransik has powers include telekinesis, teleportation, energy projection, and the abilty to pull weapons from his own body.
- In episode Movie Madness Part 2, when Ransik goes along with Cinecon's plan in wiping out Rangers with his movie-based reality warping powers Ransik's post-apocalyptic cyberpunk costume served as homage for Wez, one of main antagonists in post-apocalyptic film Mad Max 2. Interestingly, Wez was also portrayed by Vernon Wells 20 years earlier before played of Ransik.
