Detective Jason Lee Scott is the main character of Legacy of Power, a fanfiction story written by Little_kingsfan2005. He is adapted from the fictional character of the Power Rangers franchise portrayed by Austin St. John.
As a Power Ranger Edit
The first Red Ranger of Earth, Jason has since moved on with his life. He is now a homicide detective with the San Diego PD, and has both a wife and a daughter. However, not even Jason could escape the Power forever.
It had been 12 years since Jason’s Red Ranger powers were restored to him in the Countdown to Destruction, and other than the Forever Red mission in 2002 he had no need for his powers. However, in the summer of 2010, the Red Ranger has found himself recalled to active duty after a trip to a parallel universe causes a surge in the Morphin Grid, bringing his past into the present and leaving him dealing with the Legacy of Power.
During his trip to the other world, Jason was offered the chance to become a Morphin Master (like his mentor, Zordon), while his friends, Det. Josh Grayson, and CSI Rosie Jones, were on their own quest to receive the Power. Jason was sent to the College of Morphin Masters on Eltar, where he spent six hours being interviewed, interrogated, and challenged by some of the galaxy’s most notable Red Morphin Masters. After that, he was sent alone into the Caves of Alshar to face three tests of virtue. Upon his emergence from the Caves (in the fastest time on record), Jarek of Gaiala, leader of the Tribunal of Morphin Masters and senior Red Morphin Master, proudly presented Jason with the rank of Red Morphin Master. Meanwhile, both Josh and Rosie passed their tests with flying colors and earned the power of the Red Morphin Warriors.
Jason’s new status as a Morphin Master not only augments the powers of the Red Ranger (among other things, it allows him to control the Dinozords on his own), but also thrusts upon him new responsibilities to the universe at large – which sometimes necessitates him to travel to other worlds, act as a mentor to various teams of Power Rangers both on Earth and “abroad”, and represent both Earth and its Rangers’ interest throughout the known universe.
Not long after being recalled to action, Jason was invited to Triforia as an honored guest of the State. While there, the newly-minted Red Morphin Master aided Trey in stopping some two-bit wannabe Big Bad hoping to earn some cred by taking on the Gold Ranger.
Around Christmas 2010, Master Vile, who somehow avoided destruction during the Countdown, returned to Earth and easily defeated Jason, Josh, and Rosie when the three of them tried to stop him. Realizing they needed reinforcements, Jason summoned all of Earth’s Red Rangers, and together they made their triumphant return to Angel Grove and sent Master Vile back where he came from. Ever since, Jason and his team have been on standby should the Rangers of Earth (or on another planet) require their assistance.
In 2014, Jason joined all of the Rangers of the past, present and future in the final battle against the Armada.
Not long after the first Forever Red mission in 2002, Jason and Tommy began to organize “Red Weekends”, where the Red Rangers of Earth (and the universe, if they’re on Earth) get together every few months at a Red Ranger’s house to hang out, play poker, drink beer, practice martial arts, reminisce about the “good old days”, etc. With each new team, a new Red Ranger comes to the table, and in 2012, the Red Rangers welcomed their first female member, Red Samurai Ranger Lauren Shiba, to their ranks.
As a police officer Edit
Jason began his law enforcement career with the Angel Grove Police Department. As a lifelong resident of Angel Grove and a good friend to most of its citizens, Jason quickly made it onto the AGPD SWAT Team. However, in 2003, after shooting a disturbed man he’d known for years who had taken hostages, Jason felt he couldn’t continue serving on the SWAT Team or in Angel Grove, for that matter, and requested a transfer to another city. After passing the detective’s exam, Jason was accepted onto the San Diego Police Department in their Auto Theft Unit before transferring to the Robbery-Homicide Division in 2006.
Personal life Edit
After he and Kimberly Hart, the Pink Ranger, moved back to Angel Grove in the early 2000s, the two began dating after the death of their close friend and teammate, Trini Kwan, and were married in early 2004. They have a daughter, Jasmine, born on November 21, 2004 (six years to the day after the Countdown to Destruction); Jasmine is the first child born to members of the first team of Power Rangers on Earth. He and his family live in Coronado, where Kim runs her own gymnastics/martial arts studio that he also teaches at.
He has over 25 years of training in the martial arts, and is currently a 5th degree black belt in American-style karate. He also holds non-black belt ranks in Tae-Kwon Do, Judo, and Kenpo.
Superpowers, weapons, and equipment Edit
As a Power Ranger Edit
As the Red Ranger, Jason carries a Blade Blaster as his Ranger sidearm, and uses the Power Sword as his personal weapon. He commands the Tyrannosaurus Dinozord, Titanus the Carrierzord, and Tor the Shuttlezord; when necessary, Jason can also summon the Mastodon, Pterodactyl, Triceratops, and Sabertooth Tiger Dinozords, which allows him to control the Megazord. He also has access to the Metallic Armor and carries the Green Power Coin for emergencies, which allows him to use the Dragon Shield, the Dragon Dagger, and the Dragonzord.
As a police officer Edit
As a Detective with the SDPD, Jason drives a Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor as his duty vehicle and carries a SIG-Sauer P229 in 9×19mm as his sidearm. His personal vehicle is a Ford F-150 pickup truck, and he also has a Harley Davidson motorcycle. Jason has killed 3 people in the line of duty as a police officer, and has been decorated for heroism multiple times by both the Angel Grove and San Diego Police Departments.
