Over 10,000 years
ago, there was a great evil named Dai Shi. He believed that
animals should rule the planet, and humans were to be erased.
Brave warriors channeled their Animal Spirits, and after great
battle, they were able to capture the Dai Shi.
The Pai Zhuq, the Order of the Claw, was formed to train students in
Kung Fu and to serve as protectors, if the Dai Shi were ever to
Master Mao had
originally chosen Jarrod, Theo & Lily to be the three guardians
of the chest holding Dai Shi. But, when Jarrod showed himself
to be uncaring to others and selfish, he was expelled, and Casey was
given his place.
However, when the
enraged Jarrod attack Master Mao with his Black Lion Animal Spirit,
the chest was opened and Dai Shi was released. First Dai Shi
destroyed Master Mao and then escaped. As Jarrod was making his
way through the forest, Dai Shi caught up with him and possessed
With Dai Shi taking over
Jarrod, he was able to return to his palace and begin rebuilding his
Rinshi armies. Dai Shi can use Jarrod's Lion Beast to give
himself Black & Gold Lion, as well as summon the beast to
attack. Along with the assistance of Camille, Dai Shi
plans to conquer the Earth and destroy the human race.
much as Camille has done to try and please Dai Shi, the dark master
continue to be less than impressed. He sees everyone of his
warriors as just a tool he can use to succeed in his mission.
the Five Fingers of Poison failed him, Dai Shi sought to revive the
Dark Sky Overlord, Carnisoar. After doing so, Carnisoar
explained that until Dai Shi shed the humanity still within him from
Jarrod's good deeds, he would never realize his true evil
potential. Carnisoar took Jarrod back into his past, and
changed the good deeds he had done, to the wrongful and evil
decisions, thus filling him with more hate and evil.
Once they returned to
the present, Carnisoar took on the task of training Dai Shi.
Camille however saw Carnisoar's methods as being cruel and ruthless.
So in hopes to save her love, Camille revived the Sea Overlord,
Jellica has now taken
the job of Dai Shi's master, and will continue to train him until he
reaches his highest potential of evil.
However, Jarrod/Dai Shi
has finally started to show some compassion for Camille. When
Jellica was going to strike Camille for disobeying an order, it was
Dai Shi that came to Camille's rescue.
After Grizzaka took over
control of the evil forces, Dai Shi was reduced to just another
warrior. But Dai Shi wanted the power of Zocato, and tried
hard to master it. But after trying hard to get the power, and
failing, Master Mao appeared to Dai Shi and tried to get Jarrod to
break free of Dai Shi's influence. He said that Jarrod &
the Black Lion share a strong nexus that can't be broke.
However, instead of
helping Jarrod, the mentioning of the nexus led Dai Shi on his tasks
of finding the Rhino Nexus, so that he could gain that power, and
regain command of his army. With the help of Camille, Dai Shi
was able to get the Control Dagger and enter the Rhino Nexus.
But when he tried to unlock the Rhino Power, the Nexus rejected his
Even though Dai Shi
failed in gaining power from the Rhino Nexus, he was granted the
full power of Zocato when the Nexus rejected his evil. With
this power Dai Shi was to reassume command of the temple.
After Carnisoar &
Grizzaka were both destroyed, that only left Jellica. She
thought by bringing back the three Phantom Beast Generals, they
would be loyal to her and destroy Dai Shi. However, the
Generals destroyed Jellica and swore allegiance to Dai Shi
instead. They vowed to fight for him and asked him to become
their Phantom Beast King.
After Whiger proved
himself, by stealing the Tiger Spirit from Casey, Dai Shi was ready
to become the Phantom Beast King. Dai Shi bonded his spirit
with that of the Phantom Beast Generals, and they bonding their
spirits with Dai Shi. Together, with the the power of Rinzin,
the Generals were able to morph Dai Shi into his new Phantom Beast
King form. But Dai Shi was not finished yet. He ordered
the Generals to use their power to make Camille a Phantom Beast
As the Phantom Beast
King, Dai Shi has even more power, and is all the more dangerous.
However, after some time, the real true Jarrod finally started to
try and break free of Dai Shi's control. It was really Jarrod
that was always showing care & affection for Camille. So
when Scorch & Snapper ordered the three remaining Phantom Beast
Warriors to destroy Camille, it was the real Jarrod that came to her
rescue. Jarrod used the Phantom Beast King power to destroy
two of the three warriors, and save Camille.
However, as hard as
Jarrod tries, Dai Shi still remains too strong. The Dai Shi
pushed Jarrod back and thus allowing the evil spirit to regain
control of the human body. Casey, having seen Jarrod save
Camille and showing his desire to be free of Dai Shi, went to the temple and battled

hard against one another. But in the end, the Red Ranger was
successful in beating Dai Shi. But Casey refused to destroy Jarrod,
instead saying that if Dai Shi was really in control, then he'll destroy
When Casey turned his back to wait, Dai
Shi started to attack, but Jarrod stopped. Jarrod was finally able
to cast the spirit of Dai Shi out of his body, thanks to the kindness
and friendship Casey had shown him. When Dai Shi started attacked
Jarrod, Camille came to help Jarrod, only to end up being attacked too.
Casey saved them both with the power of
his Tiger Spirit, allowing them to escape. Dai Shi ordered Scorch
& Snapper to destroy them.
When Scorch barely managed to return, Dai
Shi explained that he only need a bit more fear in order to return to
his true form. He sent the Rinshi & Scorch to Ocean Bluff to
gather that fear.
When Scorch was destroyed by the
Rangers, Dai Shi used his powers to open the door to the Spirit
World and release his Beast Army. The Rangers, Spirit Rangers
and all the Masters battled together and were successful in
destroying the army. But Dai Shi then took the Animal Spirits
away from the Masters, allowing him to return to his true giant
The Red, Blue and Yellow Ranger tried
to fight Dai Shi, but they weren't strong enough alone.
Camille came to their rescue before Dai Shi could destroy
them. Then Jarrod returned, morphed into his Lion Warrior form, jumped inside of Dai Shi and began attacking
him. This weakened the dark beast long enough for Casey, Lily
& Theo to unleash their greatest attack, thus destroying Dai Shi for
Jarrod was able to survive the
battle, and with no longer needing to fear Dai Shi, joined the Pai
Zhuq school once again as a beginner.
