Dillon is a complete
mystery, even to himself. Due to some recent dreams,
Dillon has learned that he was in charge of protecting a blind
woman. However, they were both captured by Venjix, and
before Dillon could save the woman, she was thrown into the
Venjix Attack Bot Pit. Then Venjix had the Sat Bot removed
all of Subject 44 (Dillon's) Memories. Sometime after that Dillon
had internal Venjix Hardware; Generation Seven installed inside
of him. Dillon doesn't
even know how it got inside of him though. But it does give him
enhanced strength and abilities. He does have a pocket
watch that plays some musical tune, that he seems attached to.
Dillon was searching
the desert in his muscle car, trying to find his way to Corinth
city. When he stopped once, he was attacked by Grinders,
but he managed to take them down without a problem. Later,
while trying to figure out his location, he encounter Ziggy.
Ziggy tried to "borrow" Dillon's car, but found it
easier to try and stay on Dillon's good side and help them both
make it to Corinth.
skills and explosive devices, the two were able to make it past
the Venjix barricade and into the city. However, they were
followed by Gringers and an Attack Bot. Luckily the Power
Rangers managed to save them. They returned the favor by
saving the Yellow Ranger & her Zord from being attacked by
the Grinder's laser.
While they had done
a good deed, due to Dillon having internal Venjix hardware,
Ziggy & Dillon were both thrown in prison. There Ziggy
tried to act tough, and pretend that he had friends in the
prison, but the truth was that he had more enemies inside the
facility. When some of the bullies were about to beat up
on Ziggy, Dillon jumped in and saved the youngsters life.
Dillon explained to
Colonel Truman that he doesn't side with anyone but
himself. However, after saving Ziggy from the bullies, the
guards at the prison put him in chains. The RPM Rangers,
needing to activate Series Black, went to the prison to make
Dillon an offer. His answer was asking if he got to choose
Rangers took Dillon back to their base, where Doctor K explained
all of the Ranger technology. But even after going through
all the tests, Dillon still wasn't interested in being a
Ranger. He didn't believe he was someone who could be
trusted to protect others, since he does know that in his past,
he was supposed to protect someone, but failed. However,
after seeing the young & innocent children of Corinth
playing in the park, Dillon agreed, on one condition, that Ziggy
be freed from prison.
then morphed and the DNA bonding lock was in place, making it to
where no one else could be the Black Ranger. After having
some memory flashes of the woman he was to protect, Dillon was
ready to leave Corinth and try to find her. He was about
to escape the city, when thanks to Ziggy, he realized he
couldn't turn his back on the promise he made to the
Rangers. Dillon returned and rejoined the team.
the Rangers had to fight the Sat Bot that had taken Dillon's
Memories, Dillon didn't want the Rangers to destroy the
robot. He had hoped he could get his memories back from
the Sat Bot. But Dillon soon realized that what was right
was to protect the city, so he and the other Rangers destroyed
the Sat Bot.
after the battle Doctor K scanned Dillon's body and discover
that the Sat Bot had transmitted a signal into Dillonís arm
containing an encrypted initiation code. It initiated the
virus that was lying dormant inside his implanted robotics.
That machinery within Ranger Black has restarted a self
generation process. It is growing, and it will keep
growing until it has taken him over entirely. There is no
a battle with Tenaya 7 at the beach, the evil robotic villainess
managed to place a mind control device on the back of Dillon's
neck. The Lightning Bot then activated it. When the
remote bug was activated, it downloaded an acceleration upgrade
into the viral hardware all ready growing inside Ranger Series
Black. The Venjix Hardware inside him is started taking
over his biological being at a rate 50 times greater than it was
Rangers decided that the circuit board inside the Lightning Bot
would be their only way of possibly reversing the progress of
the virus, and returning back to at least it's normal
speed. But this would involve allowing the bot to return
inside the city. Dillon didn't want this to happen, but
Scott was the one who had to make that choice, and he went ahead
with the plan.
the Rangers defeated the Lightning Bot and retrieved the circuit
board, they began working on decrypting it. The virus
inside Dillon started taking over too fast. While Scott,
Summer & Ziggy tried to hold Dillon back, Flynn tried to
work on the decryption, but in order to do it, he needed the
base code. The base code is the original code used to
create the Venjix Virus. So, just as Dillon was about to
blast everyone, he returned to normal. Dr. K entered the
base code from the Venjix Virus, allowing their systems to
return the virus back to it's original growth rate.
hopes to regain his memories, Dillon eventually allowed Summer
to try and hypnotize him, with the musical pocket watch Dillon
had. It worked for a short time, and Dillon was able to
see himself in a city square of Kenmore, located in Omega City. This promoted he &
the other Rangers to head outside of Corinth, to try and find
out more of Dillon's past.
the team soon learned that those memories were planted in
Dillon's head, thanks to the mind control device that Tenaya 7
had placed on him weeks ago. Luckily, thanks to the Gold
& Silver Rangers, Gem & Gemma, the Rangers still managed
to make it safely back into Corinth.
Dillon learned that the tune he had memorized and played in his
pocket watch, was a tune Gem & Gemma knew as well.
They told him that while they were prisoners at one of Venjix'
Grinder factories, their cell was next to a blind girl's
cell. She would hmm the tune all the time, and told them
that it was from a family relic that her brother had.
Dillon, Ziggy & Summer went to try and find anything on his
sister at the factory, all he was able to find out was that the
girl had been held there. But before he could get her
name, the Grinders stormed in and destroyed the data
computer. While they managed to make it back to the city
safely, Dillon was still left with more questions and the
constant desire to find out who he is, and where his sister was.
the Rangers had successfully rescued everyone from the factory,
Dillon still did not see or find his sister, so he rushed back
into the burning building, with Summer right behind him.
When they became trapped inside the burning factory, both Dillon
and Summer started to realize the feelings they had for one
another. But before they could kiss, they were rescued by
the Whale Zord's water spouts that put the fire out.
and Gemma then came in and explained to Dillon that he was
standing inside the spot where his sister's prison cell had
been. Dillon searched but found nothing. Summer did
managed to find something though. She found a key just
like Dillon's, that went to his musical pocket watch. This
proved the Dillon's sister had indeed been there.
Dillon got the idea to combine his key & his sister's
key. When he did this, and then put them into the pocket
watch, the watch played the song "Farmer in the
Dell". The same song that Tenaya 7 would always
whistle. This revealed to Dillon that Tenaya 7 was in fact
journeyed out into the Wastelands on his own, to draw Tenaya 7
out. When she arrived, Dillon had the watch playing
"Farmer in the Dell". Tenaya was curious, and
then Dillon played the other song on the watch. That
caused memories in Tenaya's head to return. She saw how he
& her were brother & sister, and that it was Venjix who
had made her evil. But Tenaya refused to believe it.
She found Dillon and didn't want to believe she was human, until
she saw that she was cut and bleeding human blood.
returned to the Ranger's base, while Tenaya returned to the
Venjix palace where she discovered the truth on the computer
mainframe. With Tenaya 7 still wanting to serve Venjix,
she vowed to destroy Dillon. She returned to the city and
wanted to fight the Black Ranger. The two fought while the
other Rangers battled the Grinders. During their fight the
Black Ranger ran out of power and returned to civilian
Red, Blue & Yellow Rangers fired the Road Blaster at Tenaya
7 to stop her from blasting Dillon, but Dillon then jumped into
front of the Ranger's blast to protect Tenaya. The blast
still sent Tenaya over the side of the bridge. She was
able to just barely hang on to the cables of the bridge.
Dillon tried to grab her but couldn't reach without her giving
him her hand. Tenaya's memories came through again, as she
remember how Dillon tried to save her from falling into the pit
in the Venjix Palace. Tenaya then took Dillon's hand and
disappeared with the Rangers battled the Heat Bot, but after the
team returned to the base, Tenaya walked in and explained that
she wanted to help them. While Dillon believed her, the
others were not so convinced. But with General Shifter's
Hyper Bot reading to take control of the Ranger technology, they
needed the base codes used to program the bot. Tenaya
offered to get them from the palace, but she would need some
help. Dillon offered to go with her, but he had to leave
his Morpher behind so Venjix wouldn't detect him.
they got into the palace, it appeared as though Tenaya really
was still loyal to Venjix. She had Dillon captured and
placed into a holding cell. But it was just part of
Tenaya's plan to keep Venjix off her trail. Tenaya went to
the mainframe and downloaded the base codes the Rangers
needed. However, Kilobyte was not convinced of Tenaya's loyalty.
When he approached her and then learned of the Black Ranger's
escape, he knew she had turned against Venjix. Luckily
Dillon came just in time and knocked Kilobyte out.
Dillon and Tenaya were able to make it back into the city.
Dillon rejoined the Rangers in the fight, while Tenaya took the
chip with the base codes to Dr. K. Thanks to Tenaya's
efforts, the Rangers were able to regain control of the PaleoMax
Megazord and destroy Shifter's Hyper Bot.
the battle, all the other Rangers were glad to have Tenaya on
their side. But before they could celebrate, Kilobyte
showed up once more and captured Tenaya. The Rangers
rushed to try and stop him, but it was too late. He
blasted the Rangers and then escaped with Tenaya.
Flynn, Scott and Summer tried to find the Venjix Palace to save
Tenaya, but the tracks Dillon & Tenaya had left from before
had blow away. However, during the Ranger's fight with
Shifter, Dillon thought his sister had returned to him.
She attacked Shifter as he had the Rangers on the ropes.
But when Dillon went to Tenaya, he found that she only saw him
as the enemy, and had no memories of before. Later Dillon
had a chance to try and get Tenaya back with the Control Key the
Rangers got, that was inside Scott, but Dillon used the key to
help save his friends.
Dr. K then informed
Dillon that the Venjix Virus inside of him had grown to 40% of
his body. Once it reaches 50%, he will likely loose
control over Venjix, and there no way for Dr. K to stop it.
As the virus
continued to grow inside Dillon, he started feel the effect of
it. When the team learned that Venjix had other hybrids
placed inside Corinth, the Rangers prepared to strike
Venjix. However, before they could leave the city, Tenaya
15 activated the Magnetic Pulse, brining all the hybrids in the
city online & under Venjix control, including Dillon.
activated, Dillon fought hard to fight the control of the
virus. He was unable to help the other Rangers in their
fight against the last Attack Bot. Knowing is only hope
was the antidote Dr. K had been working on, Dillon continued to
fight the virus and made his way back to the lab. He
arrived very weak, just as Venjix finished his attack on the
base. Venjix left Dillon laying on the lab floor.
The Black Ranger was able to muster just enough strength to pull
himself up, get the antidote and inject himself with it.
The antidote worked and Dillon was cured of the Venjix
Virus. He then took another vile of the antidote with him
and went to find his sister.
Dillon tracked down
Tenaya to a warehouse, where she had Dr. K and Ziggy loaded onto
a transport. Once the two were loaded in a transport in the city,
Tenaya was about to leave when Kilobyte arrived. Knowing
Tenaya was going to soon destroy him, Kilobyte decided to
destroy Tenaya 15 first. He used the Venjix computers to
remove Tenaya's blaster weapon and then proceeded to fight
her. He had the upper hand in the battle, until the Black
Ranger joined in the fight to protect Tenaya. Even though Dillon was
trying to protect her, Tenaya 15 then captured the Black Ranger
and was prepared to use him as a shield.
Ziggy & Dr. K then caused a distraction, and Ziggy got the
antidote for the Venjix Virus back to the Black Ranger.
Dillon then got free of Tenaya 15 and injected her with the
antidote. Kilobyte tried to blast them both, but the Black
Ranger held back most of the blast with his shielding
power. It wasn't enough though and Dillon took the
remainder of the blast himself. The Red, Blue & Yellow
Rangers then showed up and destroyed Kilobyte with the Road
others rushed to Dillon's side as the antidote cured Tenaya of
Venjix's control. She remembered her past and all Dillon
had done to try to help & protect her. When everyone returned
to the base, Dr. K informed Tenaya that the blast caused all the
Dillon's robotic parts to lock up, thus making him unconscious.
Tenaya wanted to remain by her brother's side, but the Rangers
needed her. Deciding to plant another Virus in the Venjix Computers,
they needed her to gain access to the Control Tower to plant the
virus, since all the evil forces would still think she was
Tenaya 15. Flynn eventually convinced her, Dr. K loaded
the virus on Tenaya's memory drive, and she left for the
Tenaya had successfully implanted the virus, and Dr. K had
regained control of the Bio Field for the Rangers, Venjix
blasted the Control Tower and General Crunch entered the control
room to destroy Tenaya. Dillon finally awoke and rushed to
rescue his sister once more. Dillon arrived and fought off
Crunch. He grabbed an emergency parachute and he &
Tenaya jumped out of the tower as it fell. Crunch was left inside the tower as it fell to
the ground and exploded, destroying Venjix.
the battle won, Dillon was finally able to rejoin his sister. Dr. K informed
Tenaya that she did not know how much
longer the Venjix implant would allow her to see, but Tenaya was
fine. After saying their goodbyes, Tenaya, Dillon &
Summer were about to leave, but Dr. K stopped the brother and
sister. She wanted to give them back the pocket watch they
had left in her lab, but they told her to keep it.
Tenaya & Summer journeyed out into the wasteland to help
begin rebuilding in some way. They made their way to the
little yellow flower Dillon had watered when he was first
looking for Corinth. Then the group also found that mother
nature had begun rebuilding herself, as they discovered a whole
valley full of new green grass, flower and water.
