The Power Rangers were well-known throughout the universe, their tales of valour inspiring countless of people to be the best versions of themselves, and their unbelievable victories against impossible odds striking fear into the hearts of criminals, but their origins remained shrouded in mystery.
Some credited Ninjor for creating the concept of the Power Rangers, while others speculated the semi-sentient Great Power of Phaedos had chosen the original rangers. Most historians suggested Earth or Eltar to be the first planet to be protected by the earliest team of these fantastic colour coded heroes. However, none of these theories were true.
The origin of the Rangers or the Morphin Grid, for that matter, did not take place in any planet or dimension known to the Galactic Council. In fact, it took place in a long forgotten planet, now hidden within the mysterious Lost Galaxy. People no longer remember the name of the planet, even though it was the first to house life. But at the same time, it spawned a great evil in the form of despicable creatures called the Grimm.
A millenia ago, this planet was named "Remnant" by it's people, in order to remind themselves that they were all what remained of the constant war with the Grimm.
Two types of sentient species inhabited the planet, alongside animals and the Grimm - the humans and the Faunus (humanoids with animalistic traits). In order to survive against the Grimm, they used crystals called "Dust" to harness the elements and become Hunters of the Grimm.
Shortly after the defeat of the leader of the Grimm, a creature named Salem, an ancient creature, calling itself the Dark God appeared to destroy all life. Two warriors unlocked a higher power (which was actually the Morphin Grid) to become powerful warriors, with unimaginable powers. Legends remember them as the Dragon and the Pheonix. They were lovers and they fought hard to defeat the Dark God, but they failed.
In a desperate attempt to save themselves, the Atlas Military led an evacuation of every single individual in the kingdom, by boarding a giant space-craft called "ARC" which was headed for a near-by planet which was capable of sustaining life.
The two entities and other warriors stayed back to prevent the Dark God from following them. Using ancient magic and all their powers, they sealed the Dark God within the planet and created a dimensional barrier around Remnant to prevent the escape of their enemy. Their physical bodies were destroyed due to the impressive amount of power channelled by them, but the spirits of the Dragon and the Pheonix persisted, unable to move on to the Afterlife, their fates forever bound to the Darkness. As long as the God survived, so would their spirits.
Their companions had a device capable of generating a portal to the ARC, but they were betrayed by one of their own.
After the 'deaths' of Dragon and Pheonix, the spy tried to use the device to free her Master. But the others tried to stop her by trying to destroy the device.
They failed and a portal opened, neither to ARC nor to the Dark God's prison, but to an unknown place. Laughter echoed throughout the planet. The voice of their enemy. Though unable to totally escape his prison, his powers were enough to alter the properties of the portal.
It led to the only people who could free him. The reincarnations of those who trapped him. It was a portal to their spirits, which spanned space, time and even dimensions. It would transport the traitor to every era, giving her an infinite number of chances to succeed in destroying the two entities. Without a thought, she sprinted into the portal, leaving her former friends in the forsaken planet.
The people of Remnant eventually left ARC to colonise other planets, like Eltar, Inquiris and the Kerovian Galaxy. With time, they created a Galactic Empire, and forgot their origins.
Eventually, they discovered that the Dust Crystals were crystallised forms of the Morphin Grid. And after the Great War, with no Grimm to fight, the Hunters became Guardians and protectors, known to one and all, as the Power Rangers. And so began the Legacy of Power.
The Golden wave passed through her body, but it wasn't enough to purge the infinite evil energies from her soul, instead it strengthened her, and completely awakened her. She wrinkled her nose, recognizing the particular energy signature... Zordon of Eltar ! So, that self-proclaimed saint sacrificed himself to save the universe. She should've expected this. Quantrons and Pirhanatrons all around her disintegrated, and the people started rejoicing and hugging each other admist the collapsed buildings and wrecked roads.
The Zeo Ranger teleported away from the ruins as she saw the civilians approaching her. She just wasn't in the mood to celebrate the end of the invasion, for her fight had just begun.
In a jet of pink light, she appeared in her apartment, which fortunately escaped destruction even though, things were a little messy, with tables and racks displaced and objects littered on the floor, due to the seismic waves produced by the rapid air-strikes by the Quadrafighters.
She demorphed, instantly falling to the floor, fatigued from continuously fighting for hours, trying to singlehandedly save an entire city.
The eltarian energies had no doubt, awakened the Dragon and the Firebird. The dishonorable deeds she commited in order to prevent Tommy and Kimberly from realizing their destinies...the letter she'd fabricated to keep them away from from each other...the subtle manipulations by talking to them over the phone, making them suspect and hate each other...isolating them from rest of the rangers ! Her plans had been foiled, all thanks to Zordon.
Now that they were awakened, it was only a matter of time before they realised the truth.
Her initial mission was to kill both of them, before they ascended. In order to blend into the simple society of Angel Grove, she had created a fake identity... A fake life... Fake memories... For her disguise to be perfect, her real memories had to be sealed. When the time was right, her memories would return and she'd kill Tommy Oliver and Kimberly Hart.
But then, she became entangled in Rita Repulsa's devious plans and ultimately ended up as a Power Ranger. Due to all the mind-warps and exposure to the Morphin Grid, she developed an alter-ego, one who truly believed that she was Katherine Hillard and that she was good. Unfortunately, she was the one in control and she didn't remember her mission. Her alter-ego had grown to care about both of them, while she was buried within her own mind. However, she occasionally broke free, and though she was unable to kill those two, she was free to write fake letters and talk to them. If she wasn't able to free her Master and be happy herself, she'd definitely ensure that these two suffer. However, it appeared that fate had created it's own loophole... Eltarian energies had unlocked their hidden pasts and secret powers.
There was no way to stop it now.
For centuries, she had killed them, relishing in their despair and confusion over why they were being tortured to death. They were easy targets, without their memories and their powers. But this time, they were fully awake.
The real battle began now.
She had been infected by Zordon's ethics, Tommy's endless optimism and Kimberly's kindness. Human emotions were weaknesses. Disgusting! How could she have forgotten that in real life, there was never a happy ending...
She reminded herself that she was not a human anymore. Rather, she never was one ! She lived to serve her Master, to free him from his prison.
The more she killed the avatars of the Firebird and Dragon, the weaker the seals binding her Master got !
Eventually he'd break free and the universe would burn!
Katherine Hillard was a facade, nothing more than an intricate mask. In fact, she never even existed !
The blond woman got up and walked upto the windows, watching the humans in their vehicles, trying to rebuild.
Her eyes glinted in a mysterious purple light, as she pressed her forehead against the glass panes.
From tomorrow, her real task began... Planning the deaths of Tommy and Kimberly.
"Hello, Katherine..." A familiar voice. Cold as steel. It was Zedd.
" Don't you get tired?" Another voice. It was Rita. "Of failing again and again."
She turned around to see them, in their human forms. She faltered.
" You really didn't think you were the only secret weapon of the Master, did you? " Rita snarked. Her hair wasn't silver anymore. It was green. She wasn't wearing her brown gown anymore, but a white battle suit.
" We did forget. The Master gave us very long lives, and thanks to that, over time, it became very difficult to remember our true purpose. But now, we do, thanks to good old Zordon." His hair was bluish grey.
"Emerald and Mercury." Kat gasped." I'm surprised."
" Let's go by Rita and Zedd, shall we?" Zedd said coldly. " The Master entrusted us with a totally different goal, Kitty. To break him out."
A book appeared in his hands.
" This is the Galaxy Book. With a single spell, we can access the Lost Galaxy - "
" So, we have soldiers? The Grimm. " Kat asked.
" And the means to free the Master, provided we capture Tommy and Kimberly." Rita grunted. " It won't be easy now that they know. And to think I had the Dragon under my control. If only I remembered! "
Kat smiled deviously. " What if I told you there's another way? "
" What's that? " Zedd sneered.
" I can get you their son."
They were momentarily taken aback, before Rita burst into crackles." Their son?"
" Not Tommy and Kim's son. A son of the Firebird and Dragon. A boy named Harry Potter. " Kat informed." That boy has the spiritual signatures of both the Dragon and the Pheonix within him. He'll be able to suit our needs pretty well."
"So, all we need to do is get that boy." Rita giggled. Her golden staff appeared in her hand in sparkles of red light.
The Z staff appeared in Zedd's hands." Let's do it together, Katherine. For old times' sake."
"Sure. We will bring our Master back. And the entire universe will be remade in our image." Kat's lips formed a wide grin. "It's time to defeat our sworn enemies, once and for all."
IN A SECRET LOCATION IN SCOTLAND,
HOGWARTS SCHOOL OF WITCHCRAFT AND WIZARDRY
Albus Dumbledore may have been the world's greatest wizard, but a little known fact... He was also a man of science. After all, if you live for more than a century, aren't you bound to get a little curious about what lies on the other side of the rainbow?
He loved physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology. It was a wonder how muggles accomplished so many things without using magic. And the thing which intrigued him most... Unlike magic, which was selective to about 25% of the population, everyone could apply science. It was simply marvelous how much science had progressed in the last few centuries. The day magic and science can work in harmony, was the day the Earth would turn into an utopia.
So, while the classes were being held downstairs, he was busy learning about magnets and electricity.
" Professor, aren't you supposed to be concerned about something else, namely the rise of the dark lord?"
" I am... It's called multitasking, Professor Nigellus."
" Sometimes, I don't understand if you are a man who never grew up, or an old lunatic too senile to be responsible. " The man in the portrait snarked.
" Maybe both. Most probably neither. " Albus mused, not even sparing the former headmaster a second glance, as he was too engrossed in noting the momentary deflection in the galvanometer.
" Albus, please. Don't be insane." Amando Dippet spoke up from his portrait." Don't waste your time. You can still find a way to save yourself."
" Professor Dippet, I understand your concerns, but I am at peace. Please respect my decisions, old friend."
The former headmaster nodded sadly, without saying anything.
Albus looked sorrowfully at his damaged hands. This was unexpected but unavoidable. Spells and enchantments were preventing the curse from spreading throughout his body, instead of being limited to his hand. He knew he had only few months before he perished. Fortunately, another ingenious plan had concocted itself within his brain, which would save the lives of two people and prevent his death from being in vain. He would most certainly die, but Draco Malfoy would get a chance to redeem himself, and Severus could still be Voldemort's closest confidant.
Albus didn't regret it at all. He had a long life. He didn't fear death.
However, at the moment, he had time in his hands, which was rather rare, considering his various duties and obligations. And, he was absolutely sure of how he wanted to spend the time he'd left. Studying science and reading muggle literature.
Suddenly, out of the blue, a golden wave burst through the doors and swiftly passed through him. He blinked. It was gone as fast as it'd appeared. But something had changed. He felt different. Albus felt his hands. They were totally healed.
"How..." he murmured. The answers came unexpectedly, as images and scenes flashed before his eyes. Memories, which were not his own, instantly integrated to his mind. For the first time in decades, Albus Dumbledore didn't have the slightest clue of what was going on. Yet he knew that he'd been healed by eltarian energy. He was aware of the vast galaxy-wide war against the forces of Dark Spectre, which had spanned centuries. He 'remembered' his rangers. Tommy...Kimberly...Jason...Trini...Andros.
However they weren't his memories. He remembered living the life of a great hero. A hero known to one and all as Zordon of Eltar.
And that was not all.
He knew what was coming next. An evil force focused on reviving an ancient entity - the Dark God. And they were coming here, to Hogwarts to acquire the key to their plans.
The key wasn't a real key but a title. A title belonging to Harry Potter. The son of the Dragon and the Firebird.
This changed everything.
He had little time to prepare, but still there was time.
He raised his hands, as an orb of white light seemed to appear before him, before it split off to form four gems which fell upon his table. Red. White. Black. Yellow.
Dumbledore fell back to his chair, exhausted.
" What just happened?" Amando asked curiously.
" Change." he replied, rubbing his forehead. "A great war is approaching. An evil far worse than Voldemort. We need to be prepared."
Ignoring the quizzical looks sent in his direction by his predecessors, he raised his wand, conjuring his patronus, a pheonix.
"Find them." he whispered.
The Pheonix disappeared in a streak of silver lights, heading for the unknown.
He grimaced. It had begun. The final battle for survival of humanity. The endgame.
This battle was going to be tougher than anything the wizarding world or the power rangers had faced on their own. But together, they might just have a small chance of victory.
"May the Power protect us all."
1 week after Zordon's sacrifice
Harry smiled contently, putting his arms around Ginny, both of them pretending to be completely oblivious to Ron's glare. Even though his best friend had taken the 'over protective big brother' role very seriously, he could tell Ron was secretly happy for both of them.
Ginny snuggled closer to Harry. He could hear her breath. He looked down to look at her. Their eyes met. He leaned his head against her, and closed his eyes, as she put her hands around her face. They were just about to kiss when -
" Oye, that's my sister you're snogging!" Ron shouted, ruining the moment again. Ginny glared at her brother, her eyes twitching.
Harry sighed exasperated.
Hermione, from her seat beside Ron, rolled her eyes, as she closed the Daily Prophet.
The table between them seemed to be the only thing preventing Ginny from throttling her brother to death.
" There are rules which prohibit Public Display of Affection, you know. As the prefect, I -"
" We are not in Hogwarts, brother. And come to think about it, where were these rules during your makeout sessions with Lavender Brown?" Ginny said icily.
Ron turned red.
" Did you forget about it? Because we have not. It still gives us nightmares. "
" Ginny, I am disappointed in you two. This is a public place. "
" And the Common Room was not? You two were like animals after the Quidditch match. Almost made me regret winning it."
" Ginny, there are people watching. "
" Are there? " She looked around to see couples all around, kissing." Because I think, everyone else is interested in their own business, except you, for the only people even remotely interested in you are Lav-lav and dear old great aunt."
Ron was fuming, while Harry and Hermione were shaking with silent laughter.
" Cut it now, Ron. Or else you will get a Bat-bogey hex right now." Ginny threatened.
Before things could escalate, there was a crash and multiple screams from outside. Everyone looked around warily.
Harry stood up immediately, drawing his wand. The last time they'd heard a scream in Hogsmeade, it was from their friend, Katie Bell, when she came across a cursed necklace.
" Now is not the time for sibling banter. We need to see what's going on." Hermione berated, heading for the door alongside Harry and Ginny. Ron grunted before following his friends.
Before they could open the door, it shattered into millions of tiny glass shards, as five grey golems entered "The Three Broomsticks".
Outside, they could see people apparating, as many more golems swarmed the streets.
Not waiting to see what happens next, several people apparated out of the Inn.
Only they along with Madam Rosmerta were left.
" What's going on?" Ron mumbled.
" I don't know, but you kids need to get out of here." Rosmerta said, brandishing her wand, shooting multiple jets of red light towards the creatures. They didn't even budge.
A golem grabbed Ron by his hand and threw him outside.
" Ron! " Hermione shouted.
Harry noticed that all of them looked the same with a 'z' crest in the centre of their chests and black stripes along their arms.
"Bombarda!" Hermione shouted, hitting the putty directly in the 'z'. Instantly it disintegrated.
"Hit them in the Z's." She shouted.
Harry remembered things like this in television, years ago, but the Dursleys had always dismissed them as elaborate hoaxes to promote tourism. So, they were real after all. Superheroes and villains. Monsters and aliens. But the real question was what were these creatures doing here?
" Ron is out there." Hermione shouted, charging outside.
Ginny, Harry and Rosmerta followed her example and decimated the attackers. The two students then ran outside only to see fifteen more putties. Hermione was at a corner, helping Ron up. The older Weasley was thankfully uninjured.
" What in Merlin's saggy pants, are these things!" Ron asked, as the two came over to them. They found themselves surrounded by these creatures from all sides.
" Now what!" Ginny asked.
" We finish this quickly." Hermione stated, raising her wand. "Avis."
A flock of sharp-beaked birds emerged from the tip of her wand and charged towards the putties, hitting them at their 'Z' symbols. They disintegrated instantly.
"Blimey! What was that?" Ron asked.
" Putties." Harry informed.
" Five years ago, these things attacked an American city called Angel Grove. They are aliens and they battle colour-coded superheroes." Hermione panted. " But I never thought they would come all the way here."
" How do you know all this? " Ron asked. "And aliens are real."
" Well aside from watching the news, l once saw them with my own eyes during a visit to my relatives in America. My uncle, Ernie lives in Angel Grove. And if magic can be real, aliens could also be real. It shouldn't surprise you guys that much."
There was a clap.
They turned around to see a young blond lady in a black sleeveless gown approaching them. Her eyes were purple.
" Well, they are real, sweetie. " She said with an Australian accent." And so are these. " She snapped her fingers as a flock of humanoid birds with black feathers and purple beaks appeared before them. " Do you know what they are?"
" Tengas." Hermione noted. "Who are you and what are you doing here?"
" My name is Katherine and I am here for him." She pointed her finger towards Harry.
" Why are all the crazy folks after you, mate?" Ron asked.
Ginny glared at the woman. "Buzz off, lady. He ain't going anywhere with you."
" Well, if you don't come with me, my Tengas will destroy this entire town." Kat drawled.
" Who are you?" Harry asked.
" The real question is do you know who you are?"
" We have no time for mind games. We defeated your putties, I am pretty sure your Tengas will suffer the same fate. So, back off, filthy death eater. " Ginny snarled, sending bolts of red light at the birds, only for them to dodge it.
" Let's find out, shall we? And, no. I am not a death eater. Believe me, I serve a cause that far surpasses Voldemort's small minded ideas." Kat smirked." These birds have fed on the flesh of magicians before. "
The Tengas took at the air and circled them from above. They dove straight for them. Before they knew it, their wands had been snatched away from them, now lying in the claws of a tenga, who dropped them at Kat's feet.
" Now, the fun begins. " She giggled maniacally. Harry looked at his friends, seeing his own fear reflected in their eyes.
" Wait." Harry stepped forwards. " You want me. Take me. Don't hurt my friends."
" Smart choice." Katherine smirked. " Take him."
" No!" Ginny shouted.
Two tengas approached him. Their eyes gauged forwards, abruptly and they fell to the floor, lifeless. Harry saw arrows sticking out from their shoulders.
From the distance, two figures approached them. One in pink, while the other in red.
Katherine turned around. Her eyes went wide. Her nostrils flared. "No!"
The two figures raced towards them. They were rangers.
The pink ranger shot arrows at the tengas above, while the red ranger pelleted Katherine .
" You!" Kat snarled, as a bolt of red energy forced her to the ground.
She looked up to see the Pink Mighty Morphin Power Ranger and the Red Zeo Ranger.
" Step away from my son." The pink ranger pulled her up by her hair, and then slapped her. "You bitch!"
She stumbled backwards. "Is that how you treat an old friend, Kim?"
" You are no friend. The letters. You are the one who faked them. You were the one who introduced Pettigrew to Voldemort. Because of you, our son grew up an orphan. You ruin our lives again and again." Kim reinforced every sentence with a punch.
Kat stepped back. Her cheeks were red and her lips were swollen.
" That was uncharacteristically petty for a queen like you, Kimberly. " Kat sneered, her fingernails extending to form talons." Did that make you feel better, dear ?"
" No. It didn't." The pink ranger looked down, before summoning her power bow again and aiming it straight at Kat's heart." But this certainly will! "
" Kim. " The red ranger placed his hand over her shoulder. "Let's not stoop to her level."
" Tommy. She killed us over and over again." She screamed as Kat flashed a grin at Tommy. "She destroyed our happiness."
" You look good in red, Tommy."
" Shut it, monster." He said venomously. " We don't kill, but we will contain you and make sure you suffer."
"Yeah. About that." Kat laughed, before flicking her arms, summoning her zeonizers. She brought them together, morphing into the pink zeo ranger. "I am not as defenseless as you think I am."
" Fire Cloud!" She extended both of her arms, sending a pink cloud in their direction. As it hit them, sparks ran through their armour and fires blazed the street.
" Zeo Ranger 1 - Power Kick!" She jumped above, and launched a series of kicks against Tommy, forcing him backwards.
" Power Disc!" A round shield appeared in her hands, which she swung towards Kimberly like a boomerang.
Kim shot an arrow at the shield. As it hit the shield, it seemingly dematerialised before reforming behind it, and striking the pink zeo ranger, forcing her to demorph.
Kim caught the shield with both her hands and threw it aside. " Your games end now."
" That wasn't fair."
" Since when did you play fair, Katherine?" Tommy asked, coming from behind her with his zeo pistol.
" I don't. But I expected you two to. Anyway, things are more interesting, this way." She smirked. "Mark my words, I will be back for the boy. And I will destroy your happiness even if it's the last thing I do."
With that, she disappeared in a swirl of pink smoke.
" She got away AGAIN!" Kim snarled, demorphing. She was wearing a pink shirt with black trousers and a red leather jacket.
" We'll get her eventually." Tommy sighed, his armour vanishing. He had cut his long ponytail in favour of short spiky hair. He was in a red shirt, white pants and a green coat. "But now..."
They turned around to see the four astonished teenagers staring open-mouthed at them.
" What - Who are you?" Harry asked.
Kim's eyes were fixated upon Harry. Tears streamed from her face as she ran towards him, enveloping him in a hug.
Harry detached himself from her, instantly. "Sorry. I'm glad you saved us. But we don't know you. I don't know you. "
" Yeah. Sorry. I forgot that part." Kim fumbled awkwardly, stepping back.
Tommy came forwards, barely able to keep himself calm. "Harry, it may be little difficult to digest. We were the Power Rangers. My name is Tommy Oliver and she is Kimberly Hart."
"Okay. But how do you know his name?" Ginny asked, taking Harry's hands.
" We know your name because we were the ones who named you. We were James Potter and Lily Evans in our previous lives. In a way, we are your parents." Tommy replied slowly, while Kim sobbed fervently in his shoulders.
Harry looked at them, dumbstruck and more shocked than ever before. Whatever the answer was, he'd never expected to hear this. It couldn't be true. These people could not be his parents. His parents didn't even remotely look like them and they were dead. Weren't they?
Harry blinked, then burst out laughing. "Seriously, you can't expect me to believe this, can you?
Ginny looked at the two rangers curiously." You people look radically different from James and Lily Potter. You have American accents. There's no way in the world that you two could be his parents. So, why don't you tell us what's really going on? "
Kim bit her lips, looking away from Harry.
"Look, I know it's a little difficult to believe, but I am your mother. I was Lily. I sacrificed myself to save you. That was me." Kim pleaded, her voice trembling. "It's hard for us too. All our friends are gone. Sirius is dead, after thirteen years of imprisonment for a crime he didn't commit. Pettigrew betrayed us. Alice and Frank were tortured to the point of insanity. And you were left with the Dursleys who mistreated you - "
" Stop! " Ron shouted." How dare you lie to him? He has enough on his plates, as it is. We don't need your lies, on top of it all. "
" If you don't believe them, maybe you'll listen to me. " They turned around to see a person in white robes slowly walking towards them admist the empty streets. He had sparkling blue eyes, a flowing white beard and a smile, they would recognise anywhere.
" Professor Dumbledore? " Hermione asked." What are you doing here? How do you know these people? I don't understand."
" Be patient, Miss Granger. I have all the answers to your questions." He said. " For now, all I can say is that these people were your parents, Harry."
"How?" Harry stuttered. "I don't believe this."
"I would say more, but this is not the right place to discuss this." Albus reached for Harry's hand. " I can explain everything. This is all you had ever wanted."
Ginny slapped his hand, and pointed her wand right at his face. "He's not going anywhere with you!"
"Ginny! Blimey! What in the blazes are you doing?" Ron shouted.
" She's right. This person may be a death-eater using the Polyjuice potion to assume Professor Dumbledore's appearance." Hermione stated coldly, raising her wand.
Albus chuckled. "It's good to see that you are cautious. But it's really me."
"Prove it." Ginny demanded.
The headmaster sighed. "I would. Alas, time is of the essence."
He snapped his fingers, and all seven of them disappeared in puffs of blue smoke, leaving the streets of Hogsmeade totally vacant.
"Where are we?" Ginny asked, as all four of them along with Dumbledore and the individuals who claimed to be Harry's parents apparated into a large dome shaped room, full of funny. A number of curious silver instruments stood on spindle-legged tables, whirring and emitting little puffs of smoke. The walls were covered with portraits of former headmasters of Hogwarts. There was also an enormous, claw-footed desk, and, sitting on a shelf behind it, the Sorting hat.
There was no mistaking it.
" We're in the Headmaster's Office." Harry stated.
"Back in Hogwarts..." Hermione mused. "But the wards were supposed to prevent anyone from apparating in or out of the castle."
" Miss Granger, this is merely one of the many perks of being the headmaster of Hogwarts. But we have much more important things to discuss." Albus said gravely.
"Sir, these people can't be my parents. I mean, they don't even look like them." Harry said, exasperated.
" Harry, I didn't know about this till recently. But the people standing before you have the memories and the souls of James and Lily Potter. What do you think happens when a person dies? Their souls leave their bodies and while some go to heaven, others to hell, most souls are 'recycled' back to the mortal world. These souls enter new bodies and have no recollection of their previous lives. The souls of your parents are trapped in an endless cycle of death and reincarnation. For James and Lily were more than mere wizards, they were the vessels of the Dragon and the Firebird. " The old man explained patiently.
" Sir, what exactly are the Dragon and the Firebird? " Hermione asked." Are they not magical creatures linked with fire? How can souls be - "
" The dragons and firebirds you see now are nothing but pale copies of the real ones." Tommy stated. " The dragon and the Firebird were two primordial creatures existing from the dawn of time. Some may even say, they are gods."
" So, you two are gods?" Ron asked skeptically.
" Not exactly. We are the vessels of these entities. Our story starts eons ago, in a distant planet called Remnant. The people of that planet were ravaged by the whims of the Gods of Light and Darkness, over and over again. Taking pity upon these helpless humans, the Dragon and the Firebird granted it's powers to two warriors. We are the reincarnations of those warriors." Kim said." The God of Light decided to give up his powers but his brother, the Darkness refused. To stop him, our original forms sacrificed themselves to seal him for eternity. That had repurcussions, namely the two of us never able to truly die. "
" Now, three great forces of evil have combined forces to free the God of Darkness from his prison. And the only way to do so is by the energies of the Dragon and the Firebird. Since, we are susceptible to any form of mind control, now that we remember our roles, you are their target, Harry. "
" What? " He gawked." This is too much, even for me. Professor, you can't seriously believe these two. "
" Unfortunately, I do. If you remember correctly, a short while back, a golden wave spread across the entire planet, destroying the alien forces attacking us. That was the life-force of a wizard named Zordon. He transfered his memories to me. That's how I know all this. " Dumbledore shook his head." I am sorry, Harry. You had enough on your mind, before this. "
" Who is this Zordon fellow? " Ginny asked.
" He was the one who gave the power rangers the abilities to fight back against evil. He was our mentor. And somehow, he was able to discover that we were the Dragon and the Firebird. When his wave touched us, we remembered our previous lives. Our lives as your parents, Harry. " Kim smiled." It's me, dear. I was Lily. And I'm your mother. "
"Mom..." Harry bit back his tears. This felt unreal, but the way these stared at him reminded him of the way his parents' ghosts had looked at him, the day Voldemort had been revived. It was them. He couldn't explain it, but these people were his parents. "Dad? "
" Harry, I know this is what you wanted your whole life, to be with your parents. But are you sure?" Ginny asked.
" I am." Harry said.
Kim blinked out tears of joy, as she ran up to him, engulfing him in a bear hug. "I'm so sorry for leaving you, Harry. I really am."
Tommy smiled, joining the two.
" I am sorry to interrupt, but weren't you two saying something about Harry being targeted?" Ron asked.
Tommy detached himself. "You are right. Unlike us, Harry doesn't have the protection of the entities, inspite of having their powers. That's why he has to be kept safe at all times, and away from evil."
" Evil, as in that crazy blond lady. " Hermione noted. "Wasn't she a ranger too?"
" She was, before she regained her memories. Her name is Katherine Hillard. She was the pink ranger and a dear friend, but like us, she was involved with the entities. She is an immortal servant of the Dark God, never aging and always coming back, no matter how many times we defeat her. " Kim informed.
" Okay. What are the other evils- "
" Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa. We have fought them before as rangers. " Tommy said, as he recounted the tales of how he and Kim came to be rangers.
" So, your guys were rangers in the same town, at the same time? Isn't that a big coincidence? " Harry asked.
" That's fate, my son. It always brings us together, in each of our lives." Tommy made a face. "I know it sounds cheesy, but we don't know everything."
" Okay. So we have to stop these three people from getting to Harry and using his powers to free this Dark God." Ginny said pensievely. "Are the other rangers going to help us? Where are they?"
Tommy and Kim looked darkly at each other.
" They are missing. All of our team-mates. The astro rangers are trying to find them. Our best guess is that they are being held hostage in one of Rita and Zedd's dark dimensions. "
" So, we are all alone. 2 rangers and some wizards -" Harry broke off, turning towards Dumbledore." Does the Order know? "
" Harry, while this threat certainly makes Voldemort look trivial, we can't ignore him. The Order is trying to keep the Death Eaters from causing chaos. It is imperative that they are not distracted."
" But professor, we can't stop Voldemort unless we destroy all his hocruxes. "
Ginny looked quizzically at him." Hocruxes... What? "
" I'll explain later. " Hermione whispered.
Harry glanced at the ring on Dumbledore's finger, and noticed that his hand was no longer injured ." Professor, your hand? "
" A side-effect of inheriting Zordon's powers. It healed me." He answered." As for the hocruxes, Harry. I believe I have a lead on where the next one is. I promise I'll hunt them down, but this matter takes precedence."
Out of the blue, Tommy and Kim's communicators beeped. "What happened, Alpha ?"
" A monster attack... aie, aie aie. And to think that I'd finally have the chance to retire peacefully." The robot's voice emanated from the metallic devices.
"Who is he ?" Ginny asked.
"An old friend. Zordon of Eltar's robotic assistant. He is scanning the planet from the Command Centre." Kim whispered back.
"Where are they attacking, Alpha ?" Tommy asked.
" Someplace in London. The sensors are picking up a great deal of magical energy from that area." Alpha responded frantically.
"Okay, Alpha. Teleport us there." Kim said." We will take care of this stuff. You guys, stay here."
With that, they were gone in streaks of coloured lights.
" Merlin's baggy pants... With aliens and robots, my life just got a lot more wierder." Ron quipped.
"Look at who's speaking ?" Hermione frowned. "You lived your entire life knowing about magic. "
" Where did they go ?" Harry frowned. "And where is the Command Centre ?"
" Previously, it used to be in Angel Grove. Now, it is a separate sub-dimension maintained by Alpha 5." Dumbledore said. "And I think it's high time, we gave it a visit."
"Why ?" Ginny asked.
The elderly wizard looked at them with his eyebrows raised. "Isn't it obvious ? You four are the new power rangers."
"What !" Ron blurted. "You can't mean-"
Before the four young wizards could say anything more, Dumbledore snapped his fingers and the five of them found themselves in a totally white room.
Infront of them, was a red robot with golden accents observing various rectangular holograms and typing on a computer console. Surrounding him was a mess of wires and computer monitors.
"Aie aie aie, Zordon... You brought the rangers."
"My name is not zordon, Alpha -"
"I'm sorry, Albus Percieval Wolfrick Dumbledore. It's just you remind me of my old friend very much. Even your auras are similiar."
"It's alright, Alpha and you can just call me Albus." He extended his hand, and four gemstone rings materialised on his palm, before floating up and appearing before the four wizards- the red ruby, white diamond, black oynx and yellow topaz hovered infront of Harry, Hermione, Ron and Ginny respectively.
"Are you sure we are meant to be the rangers ? They are superheroes !" Hermione said incredulously.
" What do you mean ? Power rangers were always overbearing and overemotional teenagers. And you definitely fit the bill. Aie aie aie. Now hurry up and morph. Tommy and Kim need help."
The four of them exchanged wary glances.
"What he means is that Power Rangers are a legacy of fearless heroes. And from what little I've known about you in the past five years, you are heroes and this is your destiny." The headmaster said.
"Alright. I'm in it." Harry said. "I need to help my parents. I don't totally understand it, but I feel certain they are my parents. Look, I don't understand it completely, but there is some sort of connection between us. "
" We are with you." Hermione said, and Ron nodded.
"Well, I can't let you do this without me." Ginny smiled, taking his hand.
"Alright then, rangers. Put on the power rings and say the phrase - It's Morphing Time. Then call out the names of your totems. Aie aie aie." The robot whirled around.
" Totems ?" Hermione asked.
"Aie aie aie. I forgot. You are empowered by magical spirits. Harry Potter, yours is the red dragon. Hermione, you are the white ranger, empowered by the Yuki-onne, powerful snow spirits and Ron, you are the black ranger. Your totem is the Anansi, the trickster god-"
Ron turned to look at her. "What ?"
" The Anansi is a Spider."
" But it's also a creation embodying wit and intuitiveness. And given your incredible prowess in wizard chess, it's hardly a surprise." Dumbledore pointed out, and Ron nodded, somewhat trying to regain his composure.
" Last but not least, you Ginny are the yellow ranger, and your spirit is the Griffin. Together you four are the Power Rangers of Remnant. The ranger legacy is in good hands. Aie aie aie. Zordon would be so proud." Alpha said, his voice breaking, as if he was crying.
"Okay. It's Morphing Time !" Harry shouted. "Red Dragon !"
"White Yuki-onne !"
"Yellow Gryffin !"
"Black Anansi !"
In flashes of coloured lights, they found themselves in uniforms resembling the original Mighty Morphin ranger forms. All of them had a gold Dragon Shield, with the diamond composed of their respective gemstones. They had coloured capes upto their ankles, but their helmets were different, matching the creatures they drew their powers from. They had hip holsters on both sides, one side having their wands while the other contained a blade blaster.
" Blimey !" Ron exclaimed. "I feel strong like I'm a giant or something. My god !"
Hermione nodded, flexing her arms.
"I wish there was more time to acquaint you with your new powers, but Tommy and Kimberly need help." Dumbledore said, as a hologram appeared before them, showing the two rangers fighting against an ape in golden armour, trying to evade the aurors who were shooting curses at all three of them.
"Why are the aurors not trying to help them ?" Ron asked.
"Haven't you learnt by now, Ron. The Ministry of Magic fears what it cannot control. And they fear you now as well." Albus said. "Oh, I forgot. There are three basic rules of being Power Rangers. You must never use your powers for personal gain, nor must you escalate any battle. And most importantly, never reveal your identities to anyone else."
"Right !" Harry said. "But how do we help them ? We don't exactly have knowledge of martial arts-"
"You will. The power will teach you. Now go." Alpha 5 pressed a console, and four of them were teleported away to the battle in streams of coloured lights.
"May the Power protect you..." Albus said.
From behind him, Alpha 5 turned to look at him. "Who exactly are you, Albus Dumbledore ?" The robot whispered quietly, before resuming to monitor the holograms.
THE MINISTRY OF MAGIC
Rufus Scrimgeour sent a stunning curse at the creature in gold.
"You think just because you puny humans know magic, you can defeat me - the Mighty Goldar !" The titan laughed, as the curse hit him. "Cute...That tickles."
"What kind of creature are you ?" The Minister of magic asked, his voice wavering. From the corner of his eyes, he saw aurors apparating into the Atrium, while most of the employees disapparated.
Being a former auror, Rufus was never one to shy away from a battle, so when a monster arrived in the Atrium, yelling for him to show up, he rushed in to help, if only to provide a distraction for the beast while the Ministry was evacuated.
"Minister, you need to leave now." Kingsley said, swinging his wand, sending a volley of blue orbs at Goldar.
"Nonsense. We'll make sure this thing knows his place." Scrimgeour grimaced, flicking his arm, conjuring chains infront of him. The chains lunged for Goldar like vipers and wrapped his hands and legs together, forcing him to drop his sword.
"Who sent you ?" Kingsley asked. "Who are you ?"
"I am Goldar of the planet Titan and I was sent here by my masters, Rita and Lord Zedd to kill you..." He growled. "But I think this went over your heads, because after all, you humans think you know everything when you know absolutely nothing !"
"This is probably one of Voldemort's pets, speaking gibberish. I guess a muzzle is required." Scrimgeour smirked, waving his wand again as a metallic strap wrapped around Goldar's snout.
The beast's eyes enlarged and his nostrils flared in rage. His wings snapped open, surprising the wizards. He flew up and his sword flew by itself cutting off his restraints. He ripped apart the strap around his mouth and bared his fangs.
"I had hoped to kill you quickly, but you humans don't deserve a honourable end. You dare to treat me like a beast, well you got one !" Goldar headed straight for the Minister, beheading him before the aurors could even blink.
They looked at him surprised at the brutality of his actions.
"Is there anyone who'd like to show me my place ?" He yelled. "Now, all of you... I want you to deliver a message to the Wizarding World. Unless you swear your fealty to Lord Zedd and Rita, you will all die. Your magic won't save you. "
"It can't, but maybe we can." Goldar smiled, hearing the familiar voice.
He turned around to see the red and pink rangers walking towards him. "I was wondering when you would show up, Tommy. But as you can see, you are late."
He pointed his sword at Scrimgeour's decapitated body.
"We were." Kim said slowly. "But be warned... We will avenge him."
"You have ruined many lives. It's time for your end." Tommy swore, charging at him with his power sword.
"You think you can kill me ? I survived Zordon's wave. There is very little which can kill me." Goldar snarled, sending lightning bolts from his sword at the red ranger, throwing him back.
"Don't underestimate us, either." Kim said, shooting arrows at him feom her power bow. "We're not the same children you fought five years ago."
"I know exactly who you are, Firebird." Goldar grinned, deflecting the arrows with his sword. "Rita and Zedd filled me in."
"Do you really ?" Kim asked snarkily.
"What do you mean by-" Goldar yelped, as unbearable pain coursed through his body, bringing him to his knees. He tried to fly, but felt himself unable to move.
"Missing something ?" Tommy asked, as a pair of bloody wings dropped to the ground beside the titan.
"No..." Goldar muttered, dragging himself towards the wings.
"You are coming with us." Kim said, as a pair of handcuffs appeared in her hands. She clamped them over the shocked titan's hands.
"We don't know who you are but this creature will be punished by the Ministry for his crimes." Gawain Robards, the head of the aurors said gruffly, pointing his wands at them. "You will come with us to be interrogated for breaking in the Ministry."
"Excuse me ?" Kim asked. "If we hadn't came when we did, you all would have been dead."
"Who are you ? What kind of magic are you using ?" Gawain asked.
"We are the power rangers and we don't answer to you. You have our condolences for your loss but we are not under your jurisdiction." Tommy replied.
"We're not asking." The auror replied, as all the other wizards joined him. Kingsley hesitated, before doing the same.
"Did you really believe you can take us on after we defeated the monster who almost killed all of you ?" Kim asked.
"You are dark wizards." Gawain stated. "You are going to be persecuted -"
At that exact moment, a portal burst open near Goldar and a skeleton like monster appeared with seventeen tengas.
"Great! Rito's here." Kim facepalmed.
That was the final straw for the aurors who started bombarding the rangers with spells.
Kim shrieked as a bolt of red light hit the restraints, freeing Goldar who leapt back to join Rito.
"You will pay for taking my wings, Tommy !" Goldar yelled, picking up his sword.
"We'll see." Tommy responded, lashing at Rito with his power sword while Kim fended off the tengas with her arrows.
"Oh, I promise you that you'll join your friends soon enough... in death." That struck a nerve. Kimberly jumped infront of him, punching his face and striking him with her bow.
"You're bluffing!" She screamed, as a couple of tengas gripped her from behind.
"Well they will be dead soon." Goldar said arrogantly. Just then, a jet of green light hit him, forcing him to his knees.
"Avada Kedavra !" Gawain shouted, pelleting him with yet another killing curse.
Goldar laughed, shrugging it off. He walked towards him slowly and menacingly. "You think your magic can actually kill me ? Humans never cease to amuse me."
Just then, four bolts of coloured lights appeared infront of him, blinding him. When he opened his eyes, he came face to face with the thing he hated most... a new team of power rangers.
"We weren't expecting you this soon, but we're glad you came." Kimberly said gladly, knocking out the tengas.
"No matter how many of you are there, you will all DIE!" Goldar shouted.
"Sheesh, Goldy. Ever since Edd brought us back, you've been on the edge. Cool down, won't you ? Give us sometime to catch up with dear old power couple here." Rito said, just before Tommy smacked him unconscious with a well aimed punch to his skull.
The new team jumped in with their wands, firing stunning spells at the tengas.
Harry felt strong and at ease, even though he was thrusted into an unfamiliar battlefield. He threw powerful punches and kicks on instincts that he never knew he had. He fought like a trained martial artist. The power... it had a mind of it's own, helping him to fight.
"Stupefy !" His spell hit a tenga, forcing it back, but not knocking it out, as it would on a human.
He and Ron fought side by side, shooting curses at the tengas.
"Expelliarmus !" Harry shouted, sending a couple of tengas backwards, but still it continued to advance towards them.
"Our magic... it's not working on these creatures." Harry noted.
"Well, there's always the muggle way of doing things." Ron shrugged, launching a flurry of fast paced flying kicks at the tengas, forcing it to retreat.
"Woah. How ?" Harry managed, wide eyed.
"I don't know. Just happened..." Ron replied, equally amazed.
From the corner of his eye, Harry saw a tenga rushing at him. He moved instinctively doing a flip to avoid it before Ron punched it in the face.
"Well, I suppose you're not the only one with impressive reflexes." Harry smirked, before they advanced at the remaining tengas.
"Your enhanced senses and karate skills are just the beginning. Cut to the chase and summon your power weapons, guys !" Kim shouted, deflecting a stunning curse with her bow. "And please, stop shooting at us. We're on the same side, idiots!"
"We don't know that !" An auror shouted, just before his wand was snapped by a tenga.
"Petrificus Totalus !" The white ranger leapt to his defence, freezing the tenga before it could hurt the shocked man.
"What weapons ?" Hermione asked, narrowly dodging the claws of another tenga. Apparently these powers came with inbuilt reflexes and muscle memory.
"I thought Alpha told you about them. Just think about your elements or totems. And your weapons will just appear before you and you'll know their names and how to use them." Kim informed, before rushing to help Tommy fight against Goldar.
"Okay. So ice... cold and freezing. " Hermione murmured, before she was hit by the tenga. She staggered, before getting up. "That's it... I don't need a weapon to deal with you."
"Wingardium Leviosa !" She said, pointing her wand at the tenga, lifting it up with her magic and forcefully making it collide with five other flying tengas, pummelling them all to the ground.
"That's ingenious. A little help here !" The yellow ranger called out, punching a tenga while dodging stunning curses.
"Protego !" Ginny cried, blocking a tenga from hitting her.
"Incendio !" Hermione yelled, shooting a jet of fire at the tenga. It yelped on catching fire before vanishing in a burst of purple plumes.
"Thanks." Ginny heaved, just before Goldar unleashed a wave of dark energy from his sword throwing back Tommy and Kim, who crashed on the stone pavement, the impact forcing them to demorph.
"Your end is near !" Goldar growled. "You will die just like your stupid minister!" He smiled cruely as he walked towards the detached head of the late minister and started crushing it with his feet.
"God! Is that the minister -" Ginny supressed her gag reflex barely, seeing the horrendous sight.
Harry's face contorted with rage. His grip on his wand tightened. He may not have agreed with the new Minister's policies but he respected him and never in a million years, would he have wanted Rufus Scrimgeour to die.
He saw red, as he charged at the golden monster. In a flash of white energy, a familiar weapon appeared in his hand - the Sword of Gryffindor.
His sword clashed with Goldar's.
"Who are you ?" The titan sneered.
"The red ranger." Harry replied, before kicking Goldar back. He swiftly took out his wand and started firing hexes at the beast.
"If you think you can beat me with this..."
"I think you have used that line many times today." Tommy grunted, getting up.
"Yeah, it's time for you to finally pay, Goldar. We won't let you leave today." Kim stated, taking out her power coin.
"It's morphin time - Pterodactyl!"
"Zeo ranger 5 - Red!" Tommy yelled, bringing his zeonisers together.
With a blinding flash of white light, the two rangers leapt at Goldar.
"Power Bow !" Kim fired multiple arrows at him, while Tommy and Harry charged at him with their swords.
"You will all DIE !" Goldar yelled, parrying Harry's blows and kicking Tommy. "I have had centuries of experience defeating so called heroes like you. What makes you think you will win ?"
"Because we are not alone. " It was another voice, as a white light burst into the Atrium, which dissipated to reveal Albus Dumbledore.
He snapped his fingers, as the Aurors slumped to the ground, unconscious and the tengas turned to ash.
The other rangers gathered around him.
"Rangers, Miss Hart was right. You were supposed to have power weapons. Unfortunately I still hadn't been able to forge them till now. Harry was able to summon the Sword of Gryffindor as his weapon, because of his prior connection with it. For you three, I have created these." He waved his hands and four jets of white light appeared before them.
"Hermione, you have the Snow sceptre. In addition to being a staff, it has the power to channel impressive elemental magic and freeze your enemies." One of the lights went to Hermione's hand, forming a sharp white coloured sword.
"Ron, you have the Shadow Daggers. With these, you can blend with the darkness and strike down your opponents when they are distracted. You'll also have enhanced agility and superspeed." Similarly, two twin black coloured daggers appeared in Ron's hands.
"Ginny, you have two weapons. First is the Thunder Cannon." One jet of light formed a bulky yellow hammer. "And the second is a different kind of weapon." The light enveloped Ginny's hands, forming matching yellow gloves. "These Gryffin gloves are based on a muggle weapon called boxers. This will give superstrength and immunity to spells of all kinds."
"Thanks, professor." Hermione said.
Just then, another portal opened, revealing Rita and Zedd.
"Go, help the others take care of Goldar. I'll handle these two." Dumbledore said.
"Can you ?" Rita laughed. "After all, you're just a Earthly wizard."
"You'll find I'm more than that, Rita." Albus smirked, his eyes changing colours to amber before turning back to blue.
Rita recoiled. "It can't be..."
Meanwhile, the others joined Harry, Tommy and Kim in fighting Goldar.
"Blizzard Rush." Hermione shouted, as Goldar became encased in a icicle.
"Gryffin Power Punch!" Ginny shouted, punching the ice, throwing it back. The ice shattered, revealing a disoriented Goldar.
"Shadow strike!" Ron said, appearing behind him and striking him repeatedly with his daggers.
The general of Zedd's armies screamed loudly before swinging his sword wildly, throwing Ron back.
" Guys, let's form the Power Blaster !" Kim shouted, throwing up her bow.
"What ?" Hermione asked quizzically.
"Just throw your weapons to the air and they'll combine magically." Tommy explained.
"Really?" Ron asked.
"Just do it." Kim said simply. "We'll give you the crash course later."
"Okay. Here it goes..." Ron murmured, throwing his daggers to the air, which attached to the bow.
"Thunder Cannon!" The cannon attached beneath the bow.
"Power Sword!" Tommy's sword attached over the hammer on the right.
"Snow sceptre!" Hermione's sword attached on the other side.
"Sword of Gryffindor !" Harry's sword attached on the centre.
"Power Blaster !" Tommy said, taking hold of the weapon. "Fire!"
The blaster unleashed a beam of light at Goldar, which he tried to block with his sword. The sword shattered and he was disintegrated completely.
"Finally..." Kim sighed, before turning towards Dumbledore who was fighting Zedd and Rita.
It was a spectacular sight with coloured lights getting splintered in all directions.
"We have to help." Harry said, rushing to Dumbledore's side followed by the others.
Rita's eyes narrowed seeing all of them. Zedd nodded, as he hit the ground with his staff, opening a portal.
"You may have won this battle but the war is just beginning." She said coldly, before entering the portal. Zedd snapped his fingers, and Rito's unconscious body flew into the portal behind her.
"We'll be back." Zedd swore, walking into the portal before it vanished.
"And we'll be ready." Kim said confidently, as the seven of them teleported away in jets of coloured lights.
"Aie aie aie." Alpha said ecstatically." That was amazing!"
"It was. We're proud of you all." Dumbledore smiled. Tommy and Kim demorphed.
"How do we get out of these suits ?" Ron asked.
"Just say power down." Alpha said. "With time, you can just demorph by thinking about it."
"Power down!" They said together, as their armour disappeared.
"Harry!" Kim smiled, hugging him. Harry blinked before returning the hug.
"Mom, dad... We have to talk." He said. "I still can't believe it. It's just-"
"We know." Tommy said. " I found it a little hard to believe myself once I recovered all my memories across all my lives. But you get used to it."
"Life isn't normal for people like us. The first thing that came to my mind when I remembered was your safety, Harry. Thank god, Zordon left his memory for Albus. He was able to send a patronus to inform us about what was going on. It was Zordon's last gift for us."
"Aie aie aie. Albus doesn't just have Zordon's memories. Albus Dumbledore is Zordon." Alpha interjected.
"What ?" Kim asked.
"I analysed your energy readings, Albus Dumbledore. It is eltarian and matches the exact unique bio readings of Zordon." Alpha looked at Albus.
"I am Zordon of Eltar. But not exactly. I have his memories and soul within myself but it has slowly been fusing with my own. When he died, he selected an individual of similiar personality to imbue his personality and powers onto." Albus stated. "So he lives on in me."
Tommy and Kim shared glances.
"Then you are not just Zordon, you have the souls of other warriors too, right ?" Kim asked tentatively. "And we know each other from your original lives, don't we, Ozpin ?"
"I was going to tell you two -"
"Save the crap. You haven't changed at all in all these millenia !" Tommy shouted. "When you were Zordon, you could have told us. You didn't. And now that you've chosen Albus as your new vessel, you still didn't."
"Wait. I don't get it. Who is Ozpin and..." Harry asked.
"Let me start at the beginning." Dumbledore sighed, waving his hand as holographic projections appeared before them, ready to recount the oldest story in the universe...
Two sinister masterminds met for the first time, each willing to sacrifice everything in order to achieve immortality.
"You summoned me. You were skillful enough and brave enough to decipher my spells and bring me to this dimension. But the question remains why ?" The bald man with pale white skin, red eyes and green robes asked, while playing with his wand.
"I need a favour from you, mortal." Katherine said coldly. "I can't say I'm a fan of your face but I've seen worse."
"Mortal ?" Voldemort's nostrils flared. "Do you even know who I am ?"
"Tom Marvolo Riddle Jr. Half blood. Nagini. Hufflepuff's cup. Ravenclaw's diadem. Slytherin's locket. Gaunt Ring. Your diary. I think I know enough about you, mortal." Kat sneered.
"How ? Doesn't matter - You will die now and my secrets will die with you. Avada Kedavra !" Voldemort shouted, firing a killing curse at her. Kat smiled, not attempting to even defend herself.
The green light bounced off her, without leaving even a single mark.
Voldemort stepped back, shocked. "What are you ?"
"I'm more powerful than you can ever hope to be." Kat grinned. "Good for you, I have not come here to fight you. I'll give you the secret to my immortality and ensure that you can survive even after the destruction of all your pathetic hocruxes, provided you carry out a simple task for me."
"What do you want ?"
"The same thing as you... Harry Potter."
His eyes lit up with giddiness, as he extended his hand. "Do we have a deal, then ?"
"We certainly do, Lord Voldemort." Kat said, shaking his hand. "This is a start of a wonderful partnership."
I don't own Power Rangers, Harry Potter or RWBY. Although this is primarily a Harry Potter and Power Rangers crossover, critical elements of the story has been influenced by the anime RWBY. This is a rewrite, and is going to be different from the original version. For starters, we are going to see the backstories of the original Dragon and the Firebird via flashbacks. And this story is set after the events of "Power Rangers: In Space" and during "Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince".
Initially I hadn't planned on integrating plot elements from Rwby. But they fit in rather well with the ideas I had in mind. Any idea or character I use from RWBY will be explained in the story or in the notes.
To my readers, thank you for all the support. I hope you'll enjoy this new version of the story!
