Character History
  • Dom Oranzi is a New Student at Angel Grove High School, He is Autistic like Billy but unlike Billy he doesn't get bullied for it, instead it happens because of his status as the newest student. He was arrested for Vandalism a few weeks after he arrived in Angel Grove and as a result has to spend every saturday in detention which is where he met Jason, Billy and Kimberly, he was one of the two who defended Billy from a bully, Noting a kindred spirit in Billy he went with him and Jason to the gold mining quarry, that's where he met Trini, Kimberly and Zack. After a few days the Teens All the Teens Except Dom were feeling different and so they went back to the mining quarry to figure out what's happening to them, When Billy fell into the Crevasse Dom went into his backpack revealing he has rappelling gear and he went down after Billy, after a quick swim they find a mysterious alien ship, when they got on they were seemingly trapped on the ship a Robot captured them and was happy to see that the Power Coins have chosen hosts, however upon noticing Dom, Alpha attempted to have him eliminated until Dom noticed there's a malfunctioning console that could've "injured" Alpha so he goes and patches it up by replacing a few wires that have decayed over the centuries, showing he could be useful. He is trained alongside the teens although he isn't a Ranger. When Rita set the trap he went with them but was killed before Billy told Rita where the Zeo Crystal is. Afterwards They take Dom to the Command Center where Zordon uses the Morphin' Grid to revive Dom sacrificing his own chance to come back from the dead, it is then that the Rangers can morph, In the final Battle Dom used his experience with RTS games like Starcraft to plan out a defense against Rita. After they returned to the Command Center he was curious as to what the Future holds for him, Against his better Judgement Zordon showed him what was in store for his future, Dom is Destined to be a future holder of the Green Power Coin and Fight alongside the Rangers with a White Ranger as part of the team.
Personality
  • "In his childhood, Dom has almost always been challenged in his abilities to communicate and interact socially but he gradually came out of his shell as he got older. He's not as smart as Billy but he is close to it and is the techie of the group. Dom had few friends growing up, so finding out one of his new friends was like him is a big deal for him since he didn't know if anyone in Angel Grove was on the Autistic Spectrum like him."
  • Dom is Street Smart, Athletic and intelligent. He is on the Autistic Spectrum but he can understand jokes and sarcasm somewhat better than Billy. He is a brilliant artist capable of drawing complex shapes without the need for guidelines, this helps out when the Rangers need a new toy for their fight against evil, He is also a quick learner capable of learning how to use 3d modelling software after watching several youtube tutorials and mastering alien martial arts with little difficulty. He's pretty brash and doesn't care about authority figures, however this is actually a ruse, he is really insecure and just wants to make friends in this new town, He eventually ends up giving his life to protect the Zeo Crystal which prompts Billy to tell Rita where it is.
  • Dom's personality before becoming a member of the ranger family was shaped by his upbringing in Pennsylvania, He often listens to Classic Rock when he's out skateboarding as evidenced by his attempted escape from the police when he was caught spraying graffiti on a condemned building. Given how he couldn't keep in touch with his friends in PA he reinvented himself as a "rebel skater" to separate his new life from his life in Philly.
  • Dom has little self-confidence in social interactions due to his autism as he got bullied for it in elementary school, however when given a moment to concentrate he can enter a trance like state and show off his skills. This hyper-focusing could be unnerving to those unused to witnessing it.
  • Typical of someone on the spectrum Dom can be prone to nervousness when confronted with new situations. This is best seen when he's at home as he is still unused to the new house, this is due to his brain lacking the built in stress management systems that a neurotypical person would have, Keeping in line with this he can become a bit hyper-verbal when panicked as a way to calm himself down.
Powers and Abilities
  • Power Ranger Physiology: After receiving the Green Power Coin, Dom Gained the Following Superpowers:
  • Super Strength: Dom has a Considerable level of Superhuman Strength to the point that he could easily break his skateboard by smashing it over his head
  • Super Leaps: Dom's superhuman strength extends down to his legs allowing him to perform super jumps as seen when jumpting to the top of a building in Angel Grove.
  • Super Durability: Dom's Musculature and connective tissues are enhanced to the point that he can't be physically harmed by ordinary humans. When Morphed his additional chest shield can protect him from energy based attacks
  • Super climbing: Dom can scale mountains at a faster rate than ordinary humans, part of his is due to is parkour training but another part is due to his ranger powers.
  • Morphing: Upon gaining access to this power, Dom is capable of Morphing his body into a powerful Green Suit with a Golden Chest Armor that he can transfer to the other rangers
  • Gifted Intelligence: Dom is Exceptionally Intelligent, being a technology expert, able to tinker with alien tech with Alpha 5 and mastering alien combat styles with little difficulty
  • Expert Artist: Having been drawing since he could pick up a pencil Dom is able to draw complex schematics and comic strips without the need for guidelines.
  • Eidetic Memory: Dom appears to have a photographic memory and perfect recall, as he can remember most useful things to the letter as well as Trivia related to Sci-Fi and Comic Books (Particularly Marvel's Spider-Man).
  • Accelerated Learning Curve: Dom is capable of developing skills at an accelerated rate which came in handy with his skateboarding and his artwork. He also taught himself how to swim as a child after watching other people do it at the swim club he belonged to.
  • Hyper-Focusing State: Due to being autistic, Dom's focus and concentration is a bit different then a neurotyical person's. When Engaging in a single task, Dom can block out almost all external stimuli and process linearly at an intensity that dumbfounds his friends and peers, though Dom uses music to better block out external stimuli. This state is common among people with high functioning autism.
  • Skilled Combatant: Dom, Following the Team Training Sessions despite not having a power coin at first, became quite well versed in Alien Combat Techniques in the event that he does receive his own power coin.
Notes
  • This version of Dom is native to the "Saban's Power Rangers" Universe, He is the only version to be so as the Versions in the 1995 Movie universe and Prime Timeline were displaced from their natural realities and times.
  • He Starts off as the Tech advisor and surprisingly proficient battle strategist as a result of many hours playing Real Time Strategy Computer Games such as Starcraft and Warcraft II.
  • He was killed since Rita didn't detect a coin's energy emanating from him, however his death was the catalyst for the Rangers to finally unlock their morphing ability.
  • He loves Classic Rock because it helps ease the transition of moving to Angel Grove.
  • Although not Stated in the Movie Dom has Asperger's Syndrome which is on the high functioning end of the Autistic spectrum.
Portrayal
  • Dom is portrayed by ***Unknown***
Behind the Scenes
  • Dom's History as being Autistic as well as being the new kid in school makes him a semi-composite Character of Billy and Trini Respectively.
  • His Skateboard's Deck Graphic is that of a Dragon hinting at his future as The Green Ranger.
