Nick Russell, born as Bowen is the main protagonist of Power Rangers Mystic Force. He is the Red Mystic Ranger and the leader of the Mystic Force Power Rangers, though he temporarily became the second Koragg.

History[]

Background[]

Bowen was born to his parents Leanbow and Udonna in the Magical Dimension. Because he was born from a powerful warrior and sorceress, he was destined to be the "Light" and destroy the forces of darkness. This ultimately kickstarted the Great Battle in which the Mystic Wizards fought to prevent the Morlocks from taking him. To ultimately protect him, Phineas, along with a blanket given to Bowen by Udonna, brought him over to the Human World where he'd be adopted by an American family as Nick Russell. Nick also grew up with a sister, who was either also adopted like him or was biologically born into the family before or after Nick's adoption.

During his teenage years, Nick's parents weren't always around which resulted in him riding his motorcycle from relative to relative, and keeps his baby blanket for sentimental reasons.

Becoming a Ranger[]

After arriving in Briarwood with the intent to live with his sister, Nick volunteered to escort an old man into Briarwood forest, an act that inspired Xander Bly, Chip Thorn, Madison Rocca, and Vida Rocca to join up and aid the old man. Entering the forest, they met Udonna, the White Mystic Ranger who saw the five as the destined Power Rangers. Giving them their Mystic Morphers, Nick was hesitant to except it as he did not believe in magic. Learning that the old man was actually Udonna in disguise, Udonna fixes his bike and encouraged him to be a leader. As the other teens run into the forest to battle the Hidiacs, Nick is given the chance to either join them or leave the city.

Though Nick chose to leave the city, he ultimately turned back and returned the forest. Temporarily repelling Koragg with his newfound belief in magic, Nick took his place as the Red Ranger and defeated all of the Hidiacs on his own, which resulted in Koragg's retreat and the team's first earned victory.

When he and the Rangers were battling Catastros and Koragg, he was pulled into another dimension with Catastros. In this dimension, his powers would not work as he was chased by Catastros, who was badly injured by Necrolai's crossbow arrows. Luckily, he managed to heal Catastros, and it was because of Nick's act of kindness that Catastros combined with him as Centaurus Phoenix Megazord. Nick managed to recombine with Catastros to stop Morticon from destroying the city.

Nick and the other Rangers were trapped in an alternate reality where the Mystic Rangers were never discovered caused by Jenji and Imperious. They went to the Tribunal of Magic to have things fixed back to the way it was, and they returned the world to its rightful state. Nick discovered that he was Udonna's lost son and the Light that the Ten Terrors were fighting for.

After Oculous had captured Xander, Vida, Madison and Chip, Nick was about to surrender. But Phineas finally was able to make Nick realize that with being The Light, he has the power to defeat the Darkness and save everyone. Nick then was able to join with Fire Heart to become the Red Dragon Fire Ranger, defeat Oculous, and save his friends.

1x31 - Mystic Fate (Part 1)

Nick mind controlled by the Master.

By the end of Mystic Force, Nick was possessed by the Master and was transformed into a new Koragg. As such, the Master can summon the armor of Koragg around Nick, and has access to a variety of dark spells. After trapping the Rangers in a shield, Nick and his father duel in their respective armors. A massive battle ensues, destroying most of Root Core. Leanbow finally reaches past the darkness to his son, and the Master is ejected from Nick's body.

Afterwards Nick was pushed to the limit, seeing Udonna captured, the world destroyed and his father briefly killed, but was convinced by Madison that he couldn't give up and that the Rangers needed him to keep fighting. He was able to wound the Master enough to force him to retreat and, in the last clash, led the Rangers in destroying him. With the forces of evil defeated and after giving Madison his blanket as a sign that he will return to Briarwood, Nick along with Udonna and Leanbow rode off into the sunset on motorcycles to see his adoptive parents.

Nick considered giving up, but the other Rangers convinced him not to, given him courage to not give up. At first, Nick was a loner who would rather do things by himself than accepting help. However, with the other Mystic Rangers, he comes to accept the value of teamwork. Despite this however, Nick is also brave, headstrong and friendly.
