"With the spirit of the mighty lion!"
―Jarrod's roll call[src]

Jarrod is a Pai Zhua student and one of the guardians who served as the vessel of the evil Dai Shi. As the user of the Lion Spirit, he possessed his own ranger-like form known as the Black Lion Warrior.


Early life

Jarrod as a Young Child

Jarrod was initially a normal child in a farm. He would stay at a neighbor's house whenever his very busy parents aren't home. Then when he moved to the city of Ocean Bluff who was so alone, that he became the victim of intense bullying by five fellow kids. Eventually, they cornered him in a playground and beat the living biscuits out of him. Having had enough however, Jarrod became so enraged that he unleashed a giant energy wave from his body that sent them flying (said energy wave proving to be the Lion Animal Spirit). Sometime after that, he either heard about the nearby Pai Zhuq school or was approached personally by it's leader Master Mao and ended up joining it to learn to harness his Lion Animal Spirit for 10 years.

Jarrod was to be one of the three guardians alongside Theo Martin and Lily Chilman of the chest holding the evil known as Dai Shi. But when he showed himself to be a bully to others and was arrogant, he was expelled, and Casey was given his place. But, when Jarrod attacked Master Mao with his Black Lion Animal Spirit, the chest was accidentally opened and Dai Shi was released. As he was making his way through the forest, Dai Shi caught up with him and possessed him. For a long time, Dai Shi used his body, and his Animal Spirit as well. Jarrod's animal spirit, during his time as Phantom Beast King, seems to be gryphon-themed, though this was never confirmed on-screen.

Eventually Jarrod begins to fight back against Dai Shi, having never wanted to hurt anyone, and is eventually able to expel the evil spirit from his body. He and Camille then leave Dai Shi and join the Rangers, however his guilt in unleashing Dai Shi estranges him from the rest of the team for a while. However he soon decides to fight by their side again and is instrumental in weakening the Dai Shi. At the risk of Jarrod’s own life, he destroyed Dai Shi by combining his power with the energy ball that struck Dai Shi by Casey, Lily, and Theo to finally restore his place as guardian.

Jarrod (good)

At the end of the series, Jarrod decided to re-enroll in the Pai Zhuq academy with Camille as beginners feeling there was more they needed to learn. Jarrod and Casey were now firm friends, and Casey allowed Jarrod to take over his class whenever he was away.

Jarrod was not shown to have fought in the final battle between the Legendary Rangers and the Armada which is likely because of his new student status.

Powers and Abilities

  • Strength: As one of the main protagonists and antagonists of Jungle Fury, Jarrod has strength far exceeding any Rinshi or monster. The only one stronger than him was Grizzaka (before Dai Shi gained control over Zocato). Even when reduced to a normal Power Ranger, Jarrod was powerful enough to help destroy Dai Shi forever.
  • Ultimate Power Blast: Jarrod's strongest attack. Jarrod can use all of his energy to unleash a large yellow blast that, when performed inside of Dai Shi, left him weak enough for Casey, Theo and Lily to destroy him.
  • Transformation: As Dai Shi, Jarrod can transform into either his Lion Warrior or Phantom Beast King forms at will. Once he lost Dai Shi, he can only access his Lion Warrior Form, although it is extremely powerful.
