"With the spirit of the mighty lion!"
Jarrod is a student at Pai Zhua. As a senior student, he liked picking on junior students, like Casey Rhodes, who was only 2-weeks new. Upon the bully, Master Mao kicked him out, forcing Jarrod to play his hand. However this made him an easy target for Dai Shi.
Jarrod was to be one of the three guardians of the chest holding the evil known as Dai Shi. But when he showed himself to be a bully to others and was arrogant, he was expelled, and Casey was given his place. But, when Jarrod attacked Master Mao with his Black Lion Animal Spirit, the chest was accidentally opened and Dai Shi was released. As he was making his way through the forest, Dai Shi caught up with him and possessed him. For a long time, Dai Shi used his body, and his Animal Spirit as well. Jarrod's animal spirit, during his time as Phantom Beast King, seems to be gryphon-themed, though this was never confirmed on-screen.
Eventually Jarrod begins to fight back against Dai Shi, having never wanted to hurt anyone, and is eventually able to expel the evil spirit from his body. He and Camille then leave Dai Shi and join the Rangers, however his guilt in unleashing Dai Shi estranges him from the rest of the team for a while. However he soon decides to fight by their side again and is instrumental in risks his life to weaken Dai Shi allowing the other Rangers to destroy him.
At the end of the series, Jarrod and Camille decided to re-enroll in the Pai Zhuq academy as beginners feeling there was more they needed to learn. Jarrod and Casey were now firm friends, and Casey allowed Jarrod to take over his class whenever he was away.
