Biography

JetDan

Dan received a ring made out of a daisy by Ako,shortly before his tragic death

Dan is young and curious and falls in love with Ako during his time with the Jetmen. Although she found him annoying, he playfully gave her a ring made out of a daisy, saying they are married. When his dimensian team comrades Kanna and Ray are killed by Radiguet and he hijacks the Jet Garuda, Dan lets out an angry scream and the teleporting rainbow allows him to transform into his Birdman form and confronts Radiguet inside the mecha. Although he saved the Jetman from defeat, he is mortally wounded when Radiguet beats him and stabs him in abdomen, but he breathes fire back at Radiguet to drive him off back into his lair. While in pain, Dan tells the Jetmen to combine two robots into Great Icarus. Ako recognizes him, she tells him to be strong,but the fight isn’t over yet. So she brings him into the Great Icarus’ cockpit’s control room. Ryu activates the Great Beam, Dan then tells the Jetmen to fire the bird mazer, and the Jetmen activates the bird mazer, destroying Semimaru for good, much to Radiguet’s dismay who was being laughed at by his generals. At the final scene, before he dies in Ako's arms, he spend his last moments talking to her, then she gives him a ring made out of a daisy, mirroring his emotions for her, he then smiles at her before he tragically died as Ako starts crying over his death. Ep. 24: Launch, Super Robot

Dan nor any of the Back Dimension Soldiers participated in the Great Legend War for unknown reasons, though from a production standpoint they were one-off heroes that had limited screen time and are not as prominent in the show, like other Sentai who didn’t fight and neither he or his comrades were resurrected to fight with the Jetmen again.
