Gem is the Ranger Operator Series Gold; acting as the member of a two-man rogue Ranger Operator unit. His Operator Number is seven. He is portrayed by Mike Ginn.
Gem and his sister, due to the tragedies and captivity they have experienced, seem to have formed something akin to a hive-mind that allows them to know what the other is thinking and finish each others sentences. As such, the two act relatively the same.
Gem is the epitome of "shoot first, ask questions later." He has a reckless streak that makes working with him difficult at times, as he'd usually prefer to attack the enemy as opposed to strategize. Like his sister, he can also act simple-minded and hyper; making him come off as immature and child-like. However, he has nothing but the best of intentions for those around him; and his genius intellect makes him useful.
He pilots the Falcon Zord and also manages the Whale Zord alongside his sister Gemma.
Gem and Gemma's personal lives prior to being inducted into the Alphabet Soup program are unknown. Gem and Gemma both went out of their way to forge a friendship with the cold, enigmatic Doctor K; but found themselves re-buffed. They didn't seem to mind though, and still saw her as a close friend. At an unknown point in time, Doctor K and the two managed to forge the Gold and Silver Ranger Bio-Infantry Suits. However, Doctor K soon discovered that she and her friends were lied to and were not allergic to sunlight like members of the Soup facility had told them. (To keep them imprisoned) This motivated Doctor K to create Project Venjix, a virus originally designed to defeat Alphabet Soup's high security so that she and the two could escape. Before Doctor K could contain Venjix within the facility however, she was discovered and prevented from neutralizing her virus; setting up the events of RPM. Gem and Gemma made an attempt to save her, going back to arm themselves with the Gold and Silver suits, but Alphabet Soup was destroyed; and the two found themselves stranded in the Wastes.
At a certain point in time, the two were captured and imprisoned in a Venjix Slave Factory, but escaped through unknown means. (Also having met Dillon's sister in the process) For a few years then on, the twins waged a rogue campaign against any and all forces of Venjix they ran across. Gem and his sister encountered the RPM Power Rangers in Omega City; saving them from many enemy attacks, and even going toe-to-toe with Venjix's first body. The RPM Rangers soon managed to communicate with the twins, and convince them to return with them to Corinth City. There, the two reunited with Doctor K; who seemed happy to see them. The two even managed to convince K to begin referring to the Rangers by name to solidify a bond.
Wanting to WinEdit
When Tenaya 7 and a new Attack Bot try sabotaging Corinth's air supply, Gem and Gemma want to blow up a nearby Venjix outpost (possibly getting rid of their problem) instead of waiting the attack out inside of a sealed shield-dome. (As sealing Corinth will charge it's shield beyond capacity) Scott sides with the twins and accompanies them to the outpost after learning of Venjix's plan. Scott convinces the twins to do the one thing they've never done before: split up. Gem distracts the Grinders while Scott and Gemma infiltrate the outpost stealthily. Back at Corinth, Truman and Doctor K both realize why Scott was warning against charging the shield: They have effectively trapped themselves inside the dome with whatever is depleting the oxygen inside. The three heroes soon destroy the outpost and enter into combat with Tenaya 7 and the Vacuum Bot; which they promptly rid themselves of once Gold and Silver re-join with one another.
Gem and Gemma decide later on that they want to destroy the Venjix Prison Camp they were imprisoned in during their rogue days. However, the two are soon heard humming a tune that Dillon recognizes, giving him the clue that his sister may have been at the camp. After dealing with another Attack Bot in the city, all of the Rangers make their way to the factory in order to prevent Venjix from launching a new doomsday machine that he plans to wipe out Corinth with. As the Rangers mount rescue operations, Gem and Gemma go off on their own mission with secret instructions from Doctor K, who plans to re-program the Doom Bot into a Zord. After downloading the modification code, Gem and Gemma personally deal with the Saw Bot; destroying it just as the Doom Bot takes off. The Doom Bot does some damage to Corinth's shields, but K is able to convert it into the Blue Whale Zord just before the shields fail completely. With the newly-formed Mach MegaZord, the Saw Bot is defeated and the mission a success.
After assisting Scott in saving Colonel Truman's unit (and some nearby civilians) from an Attack Bot, Gem found himself awarded with a Medal of Valor. Scott, feeling left out, ventured into the Wastes on his own. Gem managed to find Scott and had a heart-to-heart talk with the Red Ranger. After the two made peace, they stumbled upon a group of escaped captives from a nearby prison camp being re-taken by Tenaya 7. The two infiltrated the group of captives and discovered the presence of a former Commander named Murdoch; who tried getting the two to go get help from Corinth. Instead, Gem and Scott seized the transport vehicle and returned Murdoch and his group to the city.
The Final BattleEdit
Corinth finds itself completely over-turned into a chaotic mess when Venjix unleashes his master plan: Activating every dormant Hybrid in the city. As the Rangers battle another Attack Bot,(as well as a distant Dillon) Venjix manages to break into RPM Headquarters and absorb K's MegaZord and Ranger data. The Rangers' battle with the Attack Bot prompts the use of the MegaZords, giving Venjix the opportunity to use his link to the Bio-Field to delete the PaleoMax. He goes for the High Octane as well, but Gem and Gemma sacrifice the Mach to preserve the High Octane's MegaZord data. In retaliation, Venjix deletes the Gold and Silver Bio-Infantry Suit data; which also deletes Gem and Gemma themselves since they are linked to the Bio Field when Morphed. However, Doctor K was able to return the twins to life when a repentant Tenaya 15 used a countervirus engineered by K to hack into one of Venjix's database servers; allowing K to recover most of the stolen data and re-compile the Gold and Silver Suits. (And the twins by extension) Upon returning to life, Gem and his sister immediately see their allies battling Venjix on the ground and use their Zords to unhinge the Defense Tower, which drops onto Venjix; ending his mechanical reign for good.
After defeating the virus that terrorized the world, Gem was recruited into the Eagle Squadron along with his sister by Scott.
