- assistant to Villamax
On a staircase in the Onyx Tavern, Kegler said a
happy, "Well, goodbye then," to a red alien,
then hobbled down the steps.
Kegler was a squat being with a wrinkled white
face, green round shades, and a partial barrel for the back part of his
outfit; his "hair" was slicked back in wavy stripes on the side.
As Kegler's friend Villamax was watching the rude new arrival Trakeena, Kegler annoyedly asked Villamax to concentrate on his card game.
As Villamax spoke with
Trakeena after beating up some thugs who had
been threatening her, Kegler wanted to go, but Villamax stayed and spoke with her, agreeing to
In the Onyx desert, Trakeena endured a long training session of
indeterminate time under Villamax, probably
lasting weeks or months (see "Missing time"), with Kegler
rooting her on.
As Trakeena joined Villamax outside the Onyx
Tavern after showing off her new strength, Kegler worriedly hobbled up,
telling Trakeena that her father had been in
an awful battle and was in bad shape.
Trakeena had to go
back, and Villamax offered to escort her
back; Kegler worriedly didn't want to stay after escorting her, but Villamax calmly assured him everything would be
On the Scorpion
Stinger, Villamax and Kegler arrived with
the sobbing Trakeena just before the dying Scorpius would have passed on his powers to Deviot, but Trakeena
was then given the powers.
In a storage area in the Scorpion Stinger, Deviot found Kegler and Stingwingers pushing the chained-up cocoon into the corner.
In a warehouse apparently on Terra Venture, Deviot was assigning two monsters two assassinate
Trakeena when Kegler came in, and Deviot had the monsters run, with Kegler
innocently wondering who the vanishing figures were.
Kegler told Deviot that
Trakeena wanted him to help Villamax capture the Red Ranger.
Later on the Scorpion Stinger after Deviot had destroyed the assassin Kubak (secretly sent by Deviot), Villamax
presented Deviot with a dagger shaped much like
his sword, in appreciation for his coming to Trakeena's aid.
After Villamax had
left, Kegler secretly watched as Deviot bent
the dagger into a U shape, saying Villamax's
loyalty was as worthless as the "two-bit dagger," tossing it aside.
Kegler was heading
toward the Scorpion Stinger's engine
core when a meteoroid penetrated the ship and impacted with the engine
After showing the meteoroid to Trakeena in the throne room and telling them of
an approaching field consisting of larger rocks, Kegler returned to the
engine room, where he discovered another fried circuit board and tossed
it to Villamax, shrieking to Trakeena once she'd arrived that it would take
two or three centuries to fix, as he'd never worked on anything like it
before; they needed a real mechanic, giving Deviot an idea.
When the Stingwingers brought the mechanic that had
been flown there, Trakeena was shocked to
find it was Green Ranger Damon, but she had Kegler and Deviot take him to the engine room nonetheless.
After Damon had finished
repairs, the villains rushed to the main lair, where Kegler accessed the
alien keyboard, saying they would be up and running in a few moments.
Soon, Deviot reported
engines were at full power, and Kegler made the
Scorpion Stinger fly out of the meteor
As Terra Venture
was near a red giant star, Kegler attempted to explain gravitational
physics to Trakeena, and Villamax explained that if Terra Venture were to lose power while close
to the star, the gravity would suck them in.
Deviot, presenting Motor Mantis, said it was the
perfect monster: sneaky, underhanded, and devious; Kegler remarked that
it sounded a lot like Deviot.
Mike was jogging in the Forest Dome when he heard something;
investigating, he saw Villamax and Kegler
instructing Stingwingers as they were
moving massive parts somewhere.
Tripping, Kegler (thinking he'd split a slat)
left behind a miniature disc which Mike retrieved
before being confronted by Chameliac.
The teens followed two
Stingwingers who were carrying some
tubing and supplies over a swampy pond; nearby, Kegler was supervising
the Stingwinger construction of a massive
laser dish, holding a manual.
When Villamax was
alerted to the Rangers' presence by a Stingwinger, Kegler sent Chameliac to hold them off.
Later, as the Galactabeasts were arriving to fight giant
Chameliac, Villamax armed the dish to blast the beasts, but Magna Defender arrived, blasting the dish with his rifle; Villamax attempted to leap in front of the dish but was too late, as the
entire structure exploded into fragments around Villamax and Kegler.
After retrieving the Psycho Ranger's data cards, Deviot approached a digital reanimator apparatus
on the Scorpion Stinger as Trakeena, Villamax,
and Kegler watched; Kegler had thought they'd been destroyed, but Deviot angrily explained they hadn't been
destroyed, but rather digitized.
demonstration of Decibat's
powerful soundwaves, Kelger's glasses shattered, revealing beady black
eyes underneath; he would have new glasses the next time he appeared.
After Decibat's speaker had been damaged,
the monster lay on a table as Kegler worked on the speaker, with Stingwingers as assistants; Kegler told the
impatient Deviot that he was tweaking Decibat to make him louder than
ever, pleasing the monster.
After Deviot had
activated the Galaxy Book's Keonta spell on
Terra Venture but had apparently been
destroyed, a large area in front of the Scorpion Stinger was normal space intitially, but as lightning flashed through
the area, the multicolored nebulae of the Lost
Galaxy were lit up inside.
Villamax planned to
pursue the Rangers, but Trakeena exclaimed, "You fools! Don't you
realize they've entered the Lost Galaxy?!"
and Kegler added, "It's the most mysterious place in the universe! People go in, but they never come
realized that the Rangers were gone
forever, but the ship began to be sucked in; Trakeena used the controls, and the Scorpion Stinger flew away.
Kegler made a strange electronic scuffling sound
when he walked.
Kegler watched as Trakeena ordered Villamax to destroy the treacherous Deviot, but the robot would then fling himself and
Trakeena into the cocoon, merging the two villains.
The next day, a cockroach-sized black bug buzzed
around Trakeena's head, and she looked at it
and then snatched it out of the air, making Kegler clap gleefully, but
she then crunched her teeth down on the flapping insect.
Disgusted, Kegler said that could have been her
relative, but he took it back, saying he was just kidding, when she
belched at him.
With Kegler and Villamax, Trakeena
prepared to blast the evacuating Terra
Venture shuttles out of the
Kegler watched worriedly as Villamax refused to fire on the shuttles.
After Villamax had
been blasted through a wall, Kegler scurried over to him asking if he
was all right, but Trakeena ordered him to
get away from him, blasting Villamax in the
chest and making Kegler scurry away.
After Villamax had
vanished after being apparently fatally wounded, Kegler rushed up sobbing and felt the floor,
asking what she'd done to him.
With her sword, Trakeena asked if he wanted to join him, and he
sobbingly begged no, following her out in despair.
Kegler was presumably killed in the Scorpion Stinger's crash against Mirinoi's moon following the explosion of the Megaship.
