"Phenomenal! The Mantis DNA worked! I'm a Ranger."
―Nate when he became a Ranger[src]

Nathan "Nate" Silva is a genius prodigy, chief researcher and head of technology of Grid Battleforce who developed Morph-X for use as a clean, sustainable energy source. He created the Grid Battleforce Rangers, later joining them as Grid Battleforce Gold Ranger, the Gold Ranger of the team. He is also the one who inadvertently turned Venjix into Evox.


Early Life

Nate is a prodigy who joined Grid Battleforce at the age of six. When he was 10, he discovered a way to harness the Morphin Grid, allowing him to refine it into a substance called Morph X, which would later be tried as a sustainable energy source. During this time, he experimented with past Ranger Morphers to find a new way to morph. Trying with Scott Truman's old Cell Shift Morpher by mixing Morph X and snake DNA, Nate accidentally revived the dormant Venjix Virus in the new form of Evox, which hid inside the computer system; luckily only a small portion of Venjix escaped, leaving the new Evox too weak to manipulate technology (the snake DNA thankfully prevented Venjix from replicating its code to grow stronger). Nate remained unaware he had released the evil that nearly destroyed the RPM world. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Source Code

A New Ranger Team

Nate later helps Grid Battleforce create Grid Battleforce Power Rangers to protect the Morphin Grid. He developed the Morph X powered arsenal they would use as well as a one-way transporter. He is forced to initialize the Ranger forms onto two people that were not candidates while Ravi was the candidate for becoming the Blue Ranger when Evox attempts to steal access to the Morphin Grid.

Becoming a Ranger

Before Nate was captured, he created two Morphers and two blade-like arsenals for Grid Battleforce Gold and Silver Rangers. Unfortunately Nate was later captured by Evox's Crew to finish the cybergate and body for Evox.

Nate becomes the Gold Ranger.

While being captured he decided to repair a broken Wristcom to summon the Striker Morpher to foil Scrozzle's plan. He then shoots two transporters which sends Evox back to the cyber dimension. While in use, he used two Ranger DNA capsules to become a Ranger himself.  Fortunately he succeeded by becoming the Gold Ranger while Steel's body became complete and fully functional, carrying Nate's DNA and enabling him to become the Silver Ranger.

Evox's Reveal

Nate finds the truth.

When Evox gets captured, Nate modifies the Ultra Blaster to scramble his data until he is dispersed forever. The plan works at first, but before Nate can finish him off, Evox hacks into the forcefield's computer console, escaping and re-materializing in the command room where he extracts the Morph-X Tower's access codes from the computers, the Rangers then follow him to the Ranger Vault in Nate's lab, Evox retrieves the briefcase containing the Ranger Operator Series Morphers and absorbs the data inside Scott Truman's Cell Shift Morpher. Nate attempts to blast him again, but the Ultra Blaster has no effect this time, as Evox rebuilds himself completely.

The virus taunts Nate, saying that he should already know who he truly is. Evox reveals his true origin as Venjix to the Rangers right before blasting them while he escapes. The Rangers then confront the virus outside of Grid Battleforce, but Evox, now wielding the full might of the Venjix Virus, resurrects four Robotrons in front of the team. Evox then fires a blast that de-morphs Nate. Evox teleports away after mockingly telling Nate that he'll go down in history as the boy genius responsible for ending human civilization.

After the big revelation Nate feels incredibly guilty over releasing the Venjix Virus into the world, but is able to work on a solution with Doctor K, whom with he's able to share his pain as both of them made a similar mistake, they both work on an experimental anti-Evox arrow that the team later uses on Robo-Blaze, destroying him for good.

Ending Venjix

When Venjix activates all the Morph-X Towers around the world to have the world at his mercy, Nate finishes a second anti-virus arrow and has Ben load it into the Beast-X King Ultra Bow. Nate and the other Rangers then find Venjix on his way to Tower One, Nate declares that they will destroy him before morphing and transporting some old Legendary Ranger Weapons from the Vault as Venjix never hacked into them.

Nate uses the Dino Saber to fight Venjix.

Nate uses a Dino Saber to strike up close along with his brother's Cloud Hatchet. Venjix revives some old Robotrons to distract the Rangers while he goes to the core of the Morph-X Tower, Steel then takes the anti-virus arrow and follows Venjix as Nate and the others are distracted during the fight. Nate and the others eventually catch up to Venjix and Steel who are now on the stream of Morph-X, while Steel stabs Venjix with the arrow, this doesn't do anything to him as it merely dissipates into energy, Venjix then proceeds to strike and kill Steel with a energy blast, much to Nate's despair. After Venjix blasts the other Rangers out of the Tower, Nate wants to go back and stop Venjix, but Devon tells him that they must regroup back at Grid Battleforce.

As Venjix plans to eradicate humanity, the Rangers confront him with the Beast-X King Ultrazord. Nate realizes during the fight that Venjix has been vulnerable to human DNA all along, recalling how he could not possess Steel due to his half-human DNA structure, and how possessing Mayor Daniels left him weak after prolonged exposure. Nate enters the Beast-X King Zord’s cockpit and begins to reroute the energy circuitry in order to allow Morph-X flowing through their bodies so that they could forcibly infuse their human DNA into Venjix. Nate manages to reroute all power from the Wrecker and Jet Zords to boost their powers, forcing them to reconfigure into the Beast-X King Megazord.

After being powered with Morph-X, the Rangers launch the Megazord towards Venjix and stab him with the Saber as the human DNA corrupts Venjix’s system, and with too much to handle, he explodes, finally ridding the universe of the evil virus. When the battle is finally over, the Rangers see all the Morph-X return to the Morphin Grid when Zoey sees something in the distance. The Rangers see that the Morphin Grid not only revived Steel, but it also made him a full-fledged human as Nate and the other Rangers embrace in a hug.

One year after the final battle, Nate and Zoey help Mayor Daniels promote Coral Harbor’s new renewable energy program now that the Morph-X System is gone, the Rangers then call Steel so they can celebrate his first birthday as a human on Grid Battleforce. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Evox Unleashed

A genius, Nate is a quick thinker in situations that require it. Being a single child, Nate always wanted an elder brother and sees Steel as a brother-figure. Nate also has feelings for Zoey, sending her Valentine's flowers secretly. Despite loving all living creatures, he suffers from arachnophobia, a fear of spiders. He has a liking for science fiction and doesn't know how to play most sports.

Behind the Scenes

    • Nate is the first Ranger to be based on a mantis.
