- "Blue Ranger, Rescue ready!"
- ―Blue Lightspeed Ranger's Roll Call[src]
He is also referred to as Blue Lightspeed Rescue Ranger or Lightspeed Rescue Blue Ranger, though these are more in reference to the show than proper labels.
Known for his amazing aquatic skills, Chad often spends time scuba diving, feeling connected to the marine life. The strong and silent type, he brings to the team his exceptional martial arts ability, and water rescue skills.
Chad studied under a karate master named Tomashiro, who felt that Chad's true destiny was as a martial arts master and not a Ranger. Tomashiro then helped train a monster named Cyclopter, hoping to replace Chad as his best student (Cyclopter even defeated Chad in battle), until Cyclopter turned on him. Chad remembers everything Tomashiro taught him then and eventually defeats Cyclopter, and Tomashiro even comes to ask Chad for a tour of the Aqua Base. Chad also temporarily had a relationship with the mermaid Marina, but they parted ways eventually. Chad becomes close with fellow Ranger Kelsey during the series.
After leaving Lightspeed, Chad became a lifeguard, but returned to help his team fight an undead Vypra with the Time Force Rangers. He fought alongside Lucas Kendall, his Blue Ranger successor and the Blue Time Force Ranger.
Legacy of Power
The Lightspeed Rangers were featured in a chronicle of Power Ranger history compiled by Tommy Oliver shortly after he formed the Dino Rangers, which was found by the nascent Ranger team in the Dino Lab.
Chad and the other Lightspeed Rangers returned as part of the army of Legendary Rangers that helped the Mega Rangers defeat the Armada once and for all, fighting in a huge battle against hundreds of X Borgs and dozens of Bruisers.
