Colonel Mason Truman
is the man in charge of all the defense of Corinth City.
He was in charge of the final battle against the attacking
Venjix forces, just before everyone managed to escape into the
city. He had two sons, Marcus & Scott, both fighting in the Air Support division.
Colonel Truman always favored Marcus, and never thought that
Scott was ready to fight the hard fights. He even ordered
him to stay out of his brother's way in the final fight for
Corinth. However, during the battle, only Scott Truman survived.
With Scott serving
as the Red Ranger, he took it upon himself to journey outside of
the city, in order to retrieve a part needed for the Croc
Carrier Zord to function. In doing so, Scott also found
the Recommendation Letter Marcus had written for Colonel
Truman. When the Colonel read the letter, he found that
Marcus believed in Scott and was going to recommend him for
leader of the Second Eagle Squad.
The Colonel is a
very tuff as nails kind of guy and does not show emotion.
While keeping Corinth City safe, he also remains in contact with
Doctor K, so that the RPM team can protect the city as well.
Truman's men were able to locate a laptop computer in the
Alphabet Soup dumping grounds. When Truman watched the
video file on that laptop he learned that Dr. K was the one
responsible for creating and releasing the Venjix Virus.
When the colonel came to try and arrest Doctor K, she went on
the run to keep herself safe & still be able to help the
Rangers. Eventually Colonel Truman found Doc K, but he
realized that humans make mistakes, and if not given the chance
to make up for those mistakes, we all pay twice the price.
After helping the
Rangers secure the PaleoMax Megazord, Colonel Truman returned
Dr. K to the Ranger's base and gave her a full pardon. He
explained that one can not continue to live in the past.
time started to run out for Dillon, Scott tried to convince his
father that they could no longer just sit inside Corinth, they
needed to take the fight to Venjix. However, Colonel
Truman still refused to allow this to happen, that is until
Hicks tried to blast Colonel Truman. Scott was able to
save his father, and everyone soon learned that Hicks was a
Hybrid just like Dillon, who had been activated
that his son was right, Colonel Truman allowed Scott to lay out
the plan for how the attack on Venjix would proceed. As
everyone was moving into position, Tenaya 15 set off the Magnetic
Pulse that then activated all the Hybrids inside Corinth,
including Dillon & Vasquez. Before Colonel Truman
could do anything, Venjix & his Grinders entered the command
tower and took control.
himself and many other citizens of Corinth captured, Colonel
Truman somehow managed to send a distress call to Scott's
Morpher. Scott, Flynn and Summer rushed to the location
and started rescuing the citizens. It was Scott that saved
the final battle was won and Venjix was gone, the Corinth City
forces began exiting the dome to begin exploring. Colonel
Truman then offered Scott the position of Leader of the Eagle
Squadron, telling him that there was no better man for the
job. Scott happily accepted the position.
