    Power Rangers R.P.M. - The Fallen

    It has been many years since the Machine Empire was overthrown, the Machine World has since lived in a time of peace and prosperity, even creating their own protectors -THE ENGINES- sentient automatons dedicated to the protection of the inhabitants of the mechanical world.


    But it would not take too long before the shadow of evil once again cloud the hope that had flourished until now.


    THE FALLEN, remmants of the evil Machine Empire, started to spread terror via guerrilla and tactical warfares, being defeated before by the engines, their master plan was finally unveiled and unleashed: A techno-organic Virus, set to pollute the resources in existance, and cause massive neural damages into the reploid population; it would not take too long before the machines started to turn erratic, and finally, anarchy fell unto the Machine World, rendering it completely back into chaos, evil, and deadly.



    but the fallen's plans for conquest did not stop there, soon they set their sights on a second planet on their list, the "flesh-bags" responsibles for the destruction of their old order, and their emperors: EARTH!



    The Engines, reeling from their encounter in the Machine World, heard of this plan and set their course for earth, not before Upgrading their weapons and Soul System, hoping to reach the planet before them, and to alert them from the incoming invasion.
    Using the last of the resistance as means to escape, it was entrusted upon a rookie soldier known as K0S-M0S to safeguard these Engines and prepare for departure.


    This automaton brought with her the last hope for their world into our own. It would be then that after First Contact, she would have to choose candidates worthy of taking the mantle of protectors of not one but two worlds. And with them, the galaxy at large.



    Accelerating at the speed of light!





    Episode 1 - The Power of Three



    Riding along in his car through the highway, a man was riding to his home, unsure of what the day might end up giving him. After his daily routine and constant surveillance (not to mention the indigestion caused by ordering pasta in an Irish restaurant) all he wanted to do was to return home and check on the others. Fate however had other plans.

    His trek home was uneventful, checking from time to time the sky as a meteor shower was hitting the skies, an event that was forecast on the news. That is until from out of nowhere a shadow appeared on the middle of the road, making him lose control as he tried to avoid hitting whatever it was, making him turn his car over. As best as he could, and with some wounds , he retreated out of the wreckage trying to see if the "person" he missed was OK.

    A "Person" was the last thing he saw, as what appeared to be a humanoid robot collapsed close to where he was. With "her", 5 cell chips fell from the poach she was carrying

    ZZZZ...Z... Reprogramming...ZZZZ....ZZZ...The Fallen...The Fallen....ZZZZZ


    Was all he could listen before the figure lost consciousness in his arms.


    One Year Later...

    Rodrigo Bustamante

    Many things have happened since that faithful meeting, as now they were aware of the true meaning of that "meteor shower" phenomenon, and were in preparation for any signs of attacks. During this time the newlyformed rangers made somewhat of a life for each other in Southern Cross getting to know each other during this time. Andrew started his day with his usual activities: Washing and cleaning himself, pick up his clothes and his Signature Jacket , and most importantly check the news for any reports, a thing he double checked with his monitors and computers from their base. While the other two rangers had their own accommodations Rodrigo turned his house into the base of operations for the team. It would take him months before everything was operational, and in the lapse of time, they both transformed a two story building into an autoshop called "Last Chance Autoshop" that would serve as a front to their operations.


    Cassie welcomed him to the Main Ops room.

    Good morning sleepy head. Ran the usual scanners throughout the area, made some improvements over the new surprises i have for you all, and most importantly, managed to find out that this "Xof News" jackass was actually into weird things, remind me why i cannot expose what i hacked and make him shut up?

    "Cassie" was a name she chose since her original one could be impossible to pronounce without sounding suspicious. It wasn't more like a serial number than a true name, and after spending time with Rodrigo, she christened herself with after a rather embarrassing incident on their day of contact (a story for another time). Since the day she met Rodrigo and subsequently the rest of the Rangers she made a life for herself in this new world, with him acting as host and guardian. She managed to grant the team with the Machine World's technology and improve their powers and connection to the grid, as also a machine for her that could allow her to mimic the look of a human being, to make sure she was not outed as an alien and avoid possible vivisections.

    Good morning to you as well Cassie, we talked about this, we deal with threats to mankind, this one on the other hand is just someone who uses his time for stupid reasons. I believe the people will deal with him in their own way, and besides, i think he lowers himself enough with those embarrassing stories and points of view.

    Time to hit the day as usual, but first breakfast!


    Rodrigo walked with Cassie to discuss recent fluctuating readings in their scanners, something that has not happened regularly since First Contact.

    *OOC: Make your first posts as the start of the day, a few things you may take into consider are:

    -We are already Power Rangers, at least the core 3 members for now. We just have not been revealed to the world yet but we have had a year of power and training under our belt.
    -Like Wild Force, we all have conmemorative jackets, they are based on the RPM leather jackets.
    -You may decide what you do with your spare time, either work, studies or anything in particular you fancy.

    Zack King

    Zack woke himself up catching himself snoring. He had fallen asleep inside of the car he was working on the previous night. Drops of oil were covering his face and his overalls weren't any cleaner.

    This wasn't uncommon either for the other rangers who had gotten to know Zack. Once the Last Chance Auto shop was created Zack would often spend most of his time there, despite having a home and bed to go to. He just seemed to find peace there and getting to work on Cars and Bikes was like therapy to him.

    Zack gave the car a start up and it was a smooth sounding engine, which got a sigh of relief from Zack as he wiped his hands with a rag and got out of the vehicle. He closed it and stretched as he made his way to the front desk area, turning on the computer and began to send an email to the customer. It was still fairly early so he'd just call a little later.

    Zack kicked his feet up on the desk and leaned back closing his eyes for a moment. Today felt like it was going to be busier than usual, so Zack figured he would enjoy whatever peace he could get at the moment. He may have been too relaxed however because he started to doze off.

    Levi Day

    Levi stared blankly at her computer screen, willing words to appear. Any words, she was not particularly fussed about what appeared as long as her term paper got finished in time. Between University, teaching Wing Chun and helping around ‘Last Chance Auto shop’ she found herself with limited time. Most nights when she turned in, it was not unusual for Leo to find Levi asleep at her desk, keyboard pushed against the wall, the screen from the monitor the only light source in the room. Many times, Leo’s had to carry his sister to bed, and watch as she curled around the body pillow that he’d given her many years ago.
    A short succession of raps at her doorframe alerted her to her younger sister standing in her doorway. Turning fully in her chair towards the door, she looked up as Lavina entered her bedroom. Lavina held out strawberries and bananas cut up in a bowl with yogurt towards the elder sister.

    “Aren’t you supposed to the older of the two of us?” Lavina quips, eyebrow arched with a smile tugging at her lips.
    “Nyah…age is just a number.”

    “In that case, your age is 5.”

    Levi blinks and her eyes go wide…as she pouts and turns her head sideways, sticking her nose up playfully. “I’ll have you know, I’m this many!” She teases holding up four fingers to Lavina.

    “Maybe your IQ” Lavina retorts and dodges to the side as Levi throws a strawberry at said younger sibling.

    Lavina catches it before it becomes one with her forehead and pops the piece into her mouth.

    “The strawberries are a little sour…fyi.”
    Levi forks a few strawberries and bananas and dips them into the yogurt before eating them.
    “The yogurt offsets the bitterness.”
    “So in other words they aren’t bitter like your soul?” Lavina teases.
    “I think your thinking about your soul there, girly. My soul is sunshine and rainbows.”
    “To those that aren’t family. I know you.”
    “You know na-thing.”
    “I’m a jet…got a long day of class and stalking.”
    “Don’t get caught but if you do, remember you don’t speak English!” Levi teases as her sister walks out the room waving her hand. Levi giggles to herself as she finishes off her fruit and gets up from her seat. Walking quietly into her closet and changed into a striped tee of yellows and pink, along with her jacket. Denim jeans and her favorite pair of yellows vans, walking out of the closet she swept her hair up into a loose ponytail.
    ‘Probably should go and see what Zack, Cassie and Rodrigo are up too.’ Levi thought as she left her bedroom, backpack in hand and her keys and wallet. Passing Leo on the way out she calls over her shoulder, “Be back later, don’t wait up.”

    Never do!” He calls back as a pop of a soda can is heard.

    She walks the distance to ‘Last Chance Auto Shop’, as the weather was for once not that bad. Worse comes to worse later, she’ll hitch a ride, or make Leo pick her up, she thought.

    Entering the shop, she shook her head in amusement and eyes alit with mischief as she saw Zack, dozing off at the desk in the front area. Contemplating whether to wake him up or let him sleep. Instead she took her phone out and took a few photos of him, for later as black mail purpose. Putting her phone away, she clapped her hands together calling out his name. “Zack!... Good Morning, Sleeping Beauty.” She teased.

    Rodrigo Bustamante

    The computer screen suddenly turned on with the camera feed showing in all the channels. The way they were wired was to check on the shop while they were attending "Ranger duties". They could see clearly Zack tending to a car from the night before.

    Zack was the second chosen by the engines following Rodrigo, and the one to carry field leadership duties and it was clearly seen why he was designed for it. The "First Contact" day when Cassie and the engines arrived were not only a turning point on Rodrigo's life but the others as well, as casualties were given and it was what fueled his desires as well for vengeance. Ever since then he has been the hands-on guy in the shop, earning the trust of not only himself but the customers, as they know he is the best in his craft.

    Good morning Zack, seems like the RTX was your companion for the evening. Care for some wraps? Cassie made some for everyone. And don't worry, she "learned" the right way to make them.

    Extending the plate to Zack so he could eat something he heard the chime of the door sensor indicating someone entering the premises. A blooming smile was he could see and as a sight for sore eyes, he knew who it was.

    Levy was the last of the trio chosen to be Power Rangers in that fateful day, and one that also dealt with loss on her life. She divided her time between school, the shop and her family, a trait which Rodrigo held in very high regard. She could light up the room with her demeanor and presence, and everyone who came were always elated when she was on call to help them choose any auto parts (and some "fans" who just came to see her, which were promptly taken care of by Cassie), always with a smile. But it was that smile that worried Rodrigo a bit. Being the oldest of the group he could see something was in layers in her personality and trait, but he did not want to press on as to not break the bond they had. Whenever she wanted to open more, he would be happy to oblige. But for now, their attention (and his own) had to be on preparing for any arrival.

    And it seemed that day would be closer than he expected.

    Good morning Levy, delighted to see you as always

    Cassie was always happy to see Levy as well, as they bonded on ways on how "Women of earth" had to be as to blend in as much as possible. It did not mean that Rodrigo did not do a good job as a caretaker but it helps to have an expert on the field to give a better insight.

    Cassie made some wraps if you are hungry, you can have one.

    Checking his surroundings for a second as seeing Cassie taking care of preparations before opening hour, he approached the others. Putting the plate on a desk, he got closer to them with a PDA on his hand.

    Scanners indicated a latency these past few days. While they were of not worth little by little they began to get louder, and closer in tempo and movement. Until today.

    Today, we got this...


    I think we need to get a closer look at it. We will reconvene here after classes and we can investigate. Cassie insists that these give a location signal pointing to a countdown, and an arrival point. If it is what i mean it is, we have to be ready.

    Levi Day.

    “Good Morning, Levi, delighted to see you as always.”


    Levi turned at the voice of Rodrigo and beamed brightly “Good Morning! Beautiful morning isn’t it?” She asked as she placed her bag down onto of the desk. Levi waved energetically at Cassie, as she straightened a few things out on the desk, and relocating her bag underneath the desk.

    “Cassie made some wraps if you are hungry, you can have one.” Rodrigo stated.

    She looked at the plate and extracted one, taking her time with taking bites from the wrap.

    “She did great with the wraps; Cassie I want the recipe.”
    She called out as she took another bite from the wrap. She finished off the wrap as Cassie went about preparing for the opening of the Auto shop while she straightened up and swept around the desk area. She was a bundle of energy, but fruit usually energized her, so she was not that surprised. Chuckling lightly to herself, she recalled the first time that her teammates, friends found out about this little quirk of hers.

    It had been a long day of training, one of their first team trainings and they all wear wiped. She doesn’t remember who recommended going for fruit cups but that was a fun day. She still giggles lightly when she recalls their expressions as her energy level changed from dragging her feet, to bouncing on the balls of her feet, ready to go again. So maybe she should have warned them that fruit makes her like the energizer bunny, but it was a fun day and to her that’s all that matters.
    Levi blinked as Rodrigo approached them with a PDA in his hands.

    “Scanners indicated a latency these past few days. While they were not of worth little by little they began to get louder, and closer in tempo and movement. Until today.

    Levi looked at the readings on the scanner, worrying her bottom lip as she thought over what this might mean. What they had been preparing for. She shook her head slightly, banishing the thoughts from her head, and smiled lightly.

    “So, after classes…got it. Maybe it’s just a glitch but worse comes to worse we’re ready.” She chirped and looked between the faces of Zack, Rodrigo and Cassie. She walked back near the desk and bent down, retrieving her bag, and slinging it over her shoulder.

    It was the combination of Levi's clap and the offer of food from Zack's fellow rangers that practically had him fall out of his seat. Once recovered he shot a look to Levi shaking his head then gave a chuckle.

    "Woke me out of my beauty rest... we can't all look like you ya know." Zack said half kidding. He couldn't lie, Levi was a pretty girl forsure and the past year had allowed them to establish a good friendship. Other than Rodrigo, she was definitely a go to about his problems or to vent and he hoped she felt the same.

    Zack then looked over to Rodrigo who was offering wraps made by Cassie. Zack was very hesitant because last time he had a very hard time finding anything edible inside of the food. But if Rodrigo said they were good that was enough for him. He grabbed a wrap and fist bumped the man. Zack definitely saw Rodrigo as a mentor as he was older and more experienced. Honestly Zack wondered why he wasn't selected to be the Next Red Ranger after the incident with Zack's brother.

    Nonetheless, this was the team that was meant to become the city's number one defense against the Fallen, and after all they did to change the lives of all three rangers, Zack wanted nothing more than to protect the city and most likely the world from them.

    Zack spun around in his chair as Rodrigo shared the findings. Was it really coming down to an actual confrontation. They had been training the past year but the thought of actually applying their skills into battle both excited Zack and made him anxious.

    "So... things are getting real... Hey Rodrigo... my brother... when you guys met... was he ready? Cuz honestly... I don't know if I am... I know I have to be... we all do... but well..." Zack shook his head as if to say never mind as he scarfed down the wrap understanding what was expected of him and the team.

    "Yeah I'll be here... still got another bike to fix up anyway... and Cassie wants to learn a bit more about how the vehicles work... I had to explain that break fluid is not for human consumption last time." He said with a smile to Cassie as he grabbed his rag.

    Outer Space...

    In an undisclosed location close to the solar system, a derelict space ship lurks in the darkness. Inside, the terror known as The Fallen


    S1K-70R: BLASTED HUNK OF PILE TRASH! JUST HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL WE CAN GO DOWN AND CUT THE FLESH OFF THEIR BONES!?

    W4R-F3MM: Will you relax? I know you are hunkering for a rematch with those warriors since the last time. But look at the bright side, you did get a kill. We await and strengthen our forces. Just like our lord told us to. We managed to get to the portal before those blasted resistance vermin closed the door on us and this is all we have. Now we await for his arrival and until then, we have our orders.

    0P-RTR: May i remind you our excellence designated me as the mastermind behind his plans for conquest? We are to wait until the full armada arrives with the Nemesis Dreadnought carrying our Lord, a price to pay as the Recon mission we serve. And as much as i want to see you two unleashed, i prefer to do so with proper preparations. The batch of Neo-Cogs will be fully operational in a few cycles, with it you will have a veritable task force to aid you and ensure victory. I know, I know, save your platitude for later.

    For now, Just be prepared to do battle. And bring the heads of the last of the Resistance in his glory...

    Levi Day.

    “Catch you guys on the flipside.” Levi called over her shoulder with a smile and small wave as she left “Last Chance Auto Shop.” She had a walk ahead of her to campus, but it would give her time to think about this afternoon. A part of her was nervous and worried about what they may be heading into, then another part of her was too curious to what they may come across. Her thoughts flittered back to Zack and wondered how he was taking the news. He was a good friend, and they gotten to the point that conversation between them was easy, and she had a feeling that he would be wondering if they were ready. If she was being honest, she is thinking the exact same thing. Taking a deep breathe and exhaling thru her nose, she released her worries. No sense in over worrying about the future as it has not happened yet. She believed between the three of them they all would be able to over come whatever came their way.

    Reaching around into the side pocket of her bag, she took out her Samsung Gal buds and popped them into her ears. Music soothed her soul when her mind and heart wared with one another. Entering the school grounds, she headed towards her first class, slipping unnoticed by the professor and her classmates. She popped out the ear buds and placed them back into their case, and got ready for the class to begin, taking her seat in the back. Scrunching her nose, her brows knitting together in thought as she tried to remember if she had finished her paper. Shrugging, if worse came to worse she will just make it up later. Levi chuckled softly to herself…knowing that sooner or later she would have to really buckle down and work harder on her class assignments.

    The day passed in a blur, with most people calling out to Levi and Levi calling back out to them, smiling and conversing with them as they went on their way. She enjoyed the conversations and their companionship, but she was a bit anxious to get back to the auto shop.

    Leaving the campus, she headed back to the auto shop…enjoying the peace and quiet of the walk. The sensor chimed up above her as she entered the shop and smiled as she spotted Cassie assisting a customer. Rounding the desk in the front area, she dropped her bag behind the desk and went about helping the customers that seemed to be in need of assistance. She could not put her finger on it, but being around her teammates, friends often acted to as a balm to her soul when her mind tended to go into over thinking mode. Her smile grew as she engaged in conversation with those around her.

    She scanned the room, looking for the other two members of her team, Zack, and Rodrigo…giggling lightly as Rodrigo usually beats her back to the shop. Her attention is drawn back to the people in front of her, as she loses herself in conversation with them.

    Hey Rodrigo... my brother... when you guys met... was he ready? Cuz honestly... I don't know if I am... I know I have to be... we all do... but well...

    Rodrigo Bustamante

    The Engines picked us...You...for a reason, it was never the other way around. And they knew that they would want his legacy alive by picking a worthy replacement. It is now yours to command and lead. And as they help us, so will we. We are a team after all, but more importantly, we are friends, and comrade-in-arms. We will save our world and help Cassie with hers. This is what he would want as well.

    Placing a hand in his shoulder, Rodrigo tried to comfort his friend, it was all he could do, and hopefully it can be the catalyst to make him prepared for what was about to happen.

    With Levi picking up her bag and Zack tending to a bike that was scheduled for check up Rodrigo continued on his day as well. His part time as Physics Professor allowed him ample time to tend to both the Shop and his duties, in no small part thanks to Cassie's help as well. During this year they had developed a bond that could never break, and who knows? After all this is over, maybe they can think about frivolities such as a life together. But deep down he knew her mind was millions of light years away, she still mourns her friends in Machine World and the scars of war were still fresh. So for now he would have to be her pillar and bridge between the two worlds, and that is OK for him as well.

    Afternoon arrived and the brightness returned as Levi made her way back to the shop. She saw her arriving and like a cue he waved her hello with a smile. The time now came to get into serious business as they had other matters to attend to.

    Welcome Levi, always a pleasure to see you. I think with everyone here we can go ahead. Give me a second.

    Giving a nod to the cameras and flipping the CLOSED sign after the last customer he made a sign to let Cassie know they were ready. One of the walls suddenly opened and lights began switching on. Waving at the other two Rangers Rodrigo made his way inside.





    Engine Ops. The Command Center made with the last of the Machine World's technology Cassie managed to salvage from her ship and what they could save after First Contact, it was an awesome sight to see. Everything connected to monitor cameras and law enforcement channels; satellite monitors and activities were blaring around. And on the side, a holding counter for the Engines to recharge. Due to the emergency they had to downsize and their cell chips separated, a Holographic image of the three Zord Engines were shown, while other two were dormant, perhaps awaiting for them to find proper candidates.

    Cassie then came out welcoming the team.

    Welcome Rangers. The signal began to get stronger a couple of hours ago, some satellites began to disappear so that means they are covering their arrival. While we have the U.S. Government on a merry goose chase we can get there before having anyone else escalate the situation. All the data is downloaded into your vehicle. Please proceed with caution.

    A set of doors opened to reveal the garage in which a secret exit was built. Inside a State-of-the-art SUV was there to welcome them. While at plain sight it looked like a normal 4WD vehicle inside they had the technology that allows them to connect with Cassie at Engine Ops while also capable of detection and surveillance. Running on a perpetual "Gyro Generator" they do not have to worry about stopping for gas or running out of battery from running all the equipment inside.

    Thank you Cassie. Let's grab our gear and head out. The sooner the better

    Grabbing his jacket and one of the Cell Shift Morpher they went inside the car. In a matter of seconds the car revved and reached top speed in seconds, launching to an empty road in the outskirts of town. Whatever was coming, they needed to be fast.

    Zack gave Rodrigo a nod hearing his words. They made him feel a little better, but only a little. The weight of reality was not light with the situation they were faced with. Regardless a big day awaited them all and Zack took another wrap to go.

    "Alright, gonna finish this bike and I'll be ready when it's time to roll!"

    Zack spent the entirety of his day working on the bike while also accepting other assignments. A normal person would realize when to call it quits but Zack liked the extra work. Gave him a reason to be in the Shop. And also gave him a reason not to have to face his parents, who were strongly against their now only son being a Ranger.

    Zack lost track of time while working and when he looked up and saw Drigo turn the open sign to closed he knew what was to be next. Zack freshened up best he could in the bathroom sink and put on his special jacket.



    Zack listened intently to Cassie as he stared at each of his teammates. He gave a nod. "Well... let's not be rude to our guests... and say hello." Zack, picked up his Cell Shift mopher then hopped into the SUV waiting for the others.
