So.... I was watching an episode of power rangers, and I noticed that all incarnations of the team had very basic character types, like the smart kid, and girly girl, yadda yadda. And I was thinking, what if the power rangers were based on the subcultures, fashion, and ideals of this generation. So their Power Ranger form is knights.
And so, my characters for that type of power rangers incarnation was born. From the left:
Green Ranger: Alexa; alt girl. Really into alt rock and punk rock. Her fashion sense may be intimidating, but she's very easy to get along with and usually offers sarcastic remarks. Lots of piercings, and other modifications, wears a lot of black, ripped stockings, and punk band shirts. Lesbian. Japanese American. Transforms into the Emerald Edler.
Yellow Ranger: Venus; Hard worker. Raised by a single mother who's a nurse. Never had too much money, and really values hard work. Constantly working herself to the bone to take care of herself and her family. Shy, and dresses femininely, with lots of skirts. Black American. Transforms into the Amber Alchemist.
Red Ranger: Kavita; Bollywood nerd/diva. Trying hard to break away from her labels and stereotypes. Very smart in STEM fields and secretly very much into Bollywood movies and Hindi music, but doesn't want to play into stereotypes. Quite a confident leader when not afraid to show her true colors. Wears loose, Indian design inspired tops. Indian American. Transforms into the Scarlet Swordsman.
Blue Ranger: Unnamed for now; Liberal hipster. Very invested in social justice, and quite active in speaking out about injustice. Doesn't focus on the problems facing his own life. Lots of skinny jeans, henleys, beanies, and plaid. In a bromance with Pink. White American (Irish). Transforms into Azure Archer.
Pink Ranger: Unnamed for now; Workout bro. Very into fitness and health. Still quite knowledgeable on other subjects. Sees himself as a protector of the group. Very secure in his masculinity. Often wears workout gear. In a bromance with Blue. White American (German). Transforms into Cerise Chevalier.
Also the colors: I never liked the colors they chose for Power Rangers teams, they never went together too well. So I have the classic red, blue, yellow, and I wanted to add another warm color and another cool color, so pink and a lime green. That way the colors appear balanced. I also wanted to change up the very heteronormative gender roles the colors play normally, so green is a girl, and pink is a masculine guy
