Power Morpher w/ Dragon Power Coin
Athleticism is a natural ability Ryan has possessed since he was a child. He's spent years honing his strength, endurance, and agility to become the best athlete he can possibly be. Like the other Rangers, the discovery of the power coin has boosted these abilities to a level far beyond that of a normal human. Ryan now has the ability to run faster, jump higher, and hit harder than he had ever imagined before.
Arrogant. This word is probably the one that defines Ryan Reese the most. As an only child, he was always told that he was the best and, as long as he worked hard, would continue to be so. His talent on the football field and popularity in school has really gotten to the young man's head and given him an over-inflated ego. He lives under the impression that he is God's gift to the world and is entitled to have anything that he wants. While it isn't necessarily a bad thing for him to be confident in himself and believe he can accomplish anything, the arrogant persona that Ryan radiates does tend to make him intolerable to some people.
Despite this, Ryan is an outgoing and fun guy. He thrives off the company of other people - especially those that also seem to think he is great. He has a way of charming people with his words, to the point where he really has a knack for captivating them with the things that he says. You might actually start to believe that he's the greatest person to walk the face of the Earth if you spend too much time around him. He just has that charismatic effect about him.
Ryan thrives off of excitement and challenges. He's never been known to give up, no matter how hard things get. When his mind is set on doing something, he can always be counted on to get it done. It can be frustrating dealing with someone so stubborn, but despite how full of himself Ryan is, one has to admire his resolve to never give up or half-ass things. Deep down, he's truly terrified of not being as good as everyone thinks he is. He's afraid of being a failure or a 'loser' and he never wants to be seen as weak. Of course, he doesn't want anyone to know that he actually has fears and feelings, so he puts on this show of being this 'cocky badass' because letting anyone see him as being weak in any way, according to Ryan, is the worst possible thing he could ever do.
Robert Reese was an esteemed collegiate football player who threw his chance at a successful career on the professional level away because he fell in love with a younger woman by the name of Julie. Julie didn’t want a life of fame and publicity. She didn’t want a husband who would be traveling all of the time and constantly under the scrutiny of the press. She wanted a quiet life with the man that she loved, teaching and raising a family and Robert loved her enough that he agreed.
Unfortunately, it didn’t seem if their life of the white picket fence and children playing in the yard would be easy to achieve. Though the couple tried many times to have a baby, there was always something or another going wrong and it just wasn’t happening. The doctors told the couple that it was possible that Julie would never have any children. Being a fairly stereotypical, Christian couple, Robert and Julie prayed for a miracle and rather it be through God or some other means, eventually their wish was granted.
Ryan Reese was the only child born to Robert and Julie. Having wanted a child so desperately and being ecstatic to have a son, the couple dotted on young Ryan like no other. They thought he was the greatest thing to come into their lives and they made sure he knew it.. He was always told that he was the best and he should never settle for being anything other than that. Ryan’s father had dreams of his son being a star on the football field, just like he had been at one time and made sure to get the boy involved at sports as soon as he was old enough. It served as a great way for Ryan and his father to bond and Ryan loved sports, especially football, with a passion.
Just before Ryan started middle school, his family moved to the city of Angel Grove. His mother had accepted a position as the vice principal of the high school and his father was going to be the head coach of the high school football team. As Ryan grew older and entered high school, he really started to shine on the football field. Playing the position of wide receiver, he was shown to have quick hands and could always be counted on to catch that game-winning pass.
Now Ryan is here in his senior year of high school, focused only on earning that football scholarship and making his father proud. Okay, maybe that isn't entirely true. He's also concerned with keeping good enough grades to stay on the football team and earn said-scholarship which isn't as easy as he would have thought. How can he focus on grades when there's football and cute girls plaguing his thoughts every day? Little does Ryan know, these things will soon become the very least of his problems. Senior year is a time for change to loom on the horizon. Ryan just has no idea how drastic these changes might end up being...
