"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.

Character History

Early Life

Young Nate sees a Cell Shift Morpher.jpg

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, experiments with past 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 and it hid inside the computers 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 Beast Morphers 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 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 completly.

The virus taunts Nate, saying that he should already know who he truly is. Evox reveals his true origin 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.

Nate uses the anti-Evox arrow on Robo-Blaze.

After the big revelation Nate feels incredibly guilty over releasing the Venjix Virus into the world, but is able to work on a solution along 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.

Forms

Grid Battleforce Gold Ranger

This form is the Gold Ranger's default form used in battle against the Robotrons or other villainous characters.

Appearances: BM S1 Episodes 8-11, 13-17, 19-22, BM S2 Episodes 1-22  


Grid Battleforce Silver Ranger

Nate assumes the role of the Silver Beast Morphers Ranger temporarily after he switches bodies with Steel for a short time. This form is the Silver Ranger's default form used in battle against the Robotrons or other villainous characters. Steel can manually transform into the Silver Ranger by using his Striker Morpher and Morph-X Key. Unlike the other Rangers, Nate in Steel's body is a functional robot who also possesses the genetics of human DNA (Nate's DNA), which the scarab DNA then bonded with to turn him into the Silver Ranger. Nate loses this form when he returned to his original body.

Steel

This form is Steel's Beast Bot form, unlike his fellow Rangers, he does not possess a human form to disguise himself as one. However Steel has the traits of a human considering that he's part human with Nate's DNA. In some circumstances, Steel can also go out into public without having anyone to care what he is or if that he's really a robot. He loses this form when he returned to his original body.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Notes

  • Nate is a young prodigy, similar to Doctor K of RPM, and he ultimately both emulates Dr. K's mistake and perpetuates it. Nate ends up accidentally releasing and altering the Venjix Virus, bringing it back as Evox.
  • Despite his Sentai counterpart being designed after a rhino beetle, Nate derives his powers from the DNA of a mantis. The change occurred as the rhino beetle is not as familiar to a Western audience.
    • Nate is the first Ranger to be based on a mantis.
  • Nate Silva's name is likely a pun on Nate Silver, an American statistician.
