- alien wizard; keeper of magical Golden Key
Lerigot was a great wizard. (Source: 500-TPRM introduction.)
Lerigot was the keeper of a Golden Key which opened the dimensional gateways of the universe. (Source: 500-TPRM introduction.)
A group of Piranhatron-like warriors chased Lerigot
through a Liarian jungle, intending for Lerigot to surrender to Divatox.
When surrounded, Lerigot removed from his vest
his Golden Key, a very small gold rod with a
sharp crystal tip, and held it up; gold energy swirled around him, and
energy streak was shown flying toward South America, but his streak
would soon be shown approaching the Earth a
second time, this time heading toward Africa, where he would actually
A massive fireball
exploded from Lerigot's landing spot in an African jungle, but he was
then shown in an eagle nest with two baby eagles; it seems that his
fireball should have killed any nearby animal and plant life.
Lerigot was startled when one of the baby eagles
pecked his foot, and he stumbled out of the nest, falling to the ground
After a lion had
scared Lerigot, Lerigot and the lion calmly approached each other, and
gold sparks streaked from Lerigot's extended hand and fizzled in front
of the lion's face, scaring it away and seeming to make Lerigot sad.
Alpha referred to
Lerigot as "Lerigot, the wizard of Liaria."
something was terribly wrong since Lerigot knew he wouldn't survive long
on Earth, had Alpha
pinpoint his location and contact the teens; Zordon said that if Lerigot was in trouble, they
had to help him.
Zordon told the teens that Lerigot had taken great pains to hide
his exact location and that someone must have been after him.
Zordon said that Lerigot
couldn't survive under the sun's rays.
A group of chimps in Africa found Lerigot
wandering through the jungle; one threw a rock at his head, and then one
pointed another to go to Lerigot; the band of chimps then led Lerigot
Lerigot's signal was later beginning to fade as
he grew weak from the sun's heat.
Lerigot was still with the chimps when Tommy and Kat found him.
Lerigot said "Alpha"
several times as Tommy and Kat approached him; this appeared to be the only
English Lerigot could speak.
After Tommy and Kat had found Lerigot and confirmed that they knew Alpha, Lerigot walked over to Kat, and orange sparkles from his hand healed the
gash in her leg.
Lerigot's wife Yara, holding baby Bethel, was captured and made a prisoner in Divatox's subcraft
after Lerigot had fled Liaria to seek
Zordon's help on Earth;
there was a mindblock device on Yara and Bethel's heads to prevent them from
telepathically contacting Lerigot, but Divatox
had a warrior briefly remove it from Yara
so that she would contact Lerigot; Divatox
hoped that this would cause Lerigot to surrender himself.
Lerigot was lying in the medical table in the Power Chamber when he received Yara's telepathic signal.
Alpha said the sun
had taken its toll on Lerigot but that this treatment he was receiving
would, at least temporarily, restore his life force.
Alpha and Lerigot,
being good friends, could communicate with purring and clicking sounds.
Lerigot performed the Liarian prayer of guidance in preparation to
surrender himself after receiving Divatox's
ultimatum that she would spare Yara, Bethel, Jason, and Kimberly if he surrendered.
The four teens met Elgar and his warriors at a beach in the morning and tried
to have Elgar release the hostages first, but he
refused; the teens wanted to stall for more
time, but Lerigot surrendered himself anyway.
Once he was put into a cell in the subcraft, Lerigot had a mind blocker, like the
ones on Yara and Bethel, put on his head.
Lerigot was dying aboard Divatox's subcraft; at
the time, Divatox had his Golden Key.
The next day as the subcraft approached the Nemesis Triangle, Divatox gave Lerigot the Golden Key and told him to open the gateway,
but he refused; Divatox had Elgar take baby Bethel
from Yara, at which point Lerigot gave in.
Purring in tones with his eyes closed, Lerigot
unleashed gold sparkles of energy from the Golden Key, sparkles which flowed from the subcraft's exterior into the wall of the Nemesis Triangle, and the subcraft freely passed through with flickering
light around its edges at the points of entry; this scene was confirmed
by the flashback in 501-SIT1.
Lerigot still had his mind blocker on when he
used the Golden Key to get the subcraft through the Nemesis Triangle.
Outside Maligore's temple on Muiranthias, Divatox let Lerigot out of his cage and removed
the mind blocker, then gave him the Golden
Key, which he used to unlock the door to Maligore's temple
with a swirl of golden energy specks, despite Yara's protests.
Divatox took the Golden Key back after the temple had been unlocked.
In the temple, Yara and Lerigot released from their hands gold
sparkling energy which turned Kim good again
after Maligore had turned her evil; this was
verified by the flashback in 501-SIT1.
Kim got the Liarians while the Rangers fought Divatox's warriors.
Lerigot was a descendant of those who had
Jason was walking around
with red eyes and a very sad face when Lerigot and Yara turned him good again.
Kim and Jason helped the Liarians flee the temple.
Shortly after the Turbo Megazord had destroyed giant Maligore outside, Jason,
Kim, Lerigot, Yara, and Bethel
emerged from the jungle with Bulk and Skull and were picked up by the Turbo Megazord.
In what seemed to be the evening after the national championship, the teens, Jason, Rocky, and perhaps Kim
as well seemed to be saying goodbye to Lerigot, Yara, and Bethel in
the Power Chamber after they had appeared
to emerge from the northwestern hallway, the door of which slid shut
Alpha and Zordon began to open a wormhole in space, but it would only remain open for a matter
of moments, so Zordon had Alpha send a message to send for Lerigot right
away so they would be prepared.
When the time was growing close and Lerigot still
hadn't replied, Alpha was worried, but Zordon reminded him that Lerigot had never let
them down in the past.
After appearing in the Power Chamber, Lerigot asked Zordon and Alpha if
they were going home soon, and Alpha told
him they were.
Lerigot could now speak in broken English.
Lerigot told the teens
his family was doing well and his baby was big.
When they found Lerigot in the Power Chamber, the teens assumed he'd come all this way just for
their graduation; Zordon then uneasily told the
teens while Alpha
sobbed that Lerigot had returned to give him
his freedom, and that he would soon return to his home planet (Eltar) to rejoin his own family.
Lerigot had the teens
form a circle around him; after Tommy had
arrived, Lerigot made humming purrs, and gold sparkles drifted out from
his Golden Key; Lerigot stopped the process,
however, when the Power Chamber's alarm sounded.
Once the Rangers
had defeated Elgar's fleet and again formed
a circle around Lerigot, he again produced gold sparkles from his Golden Key, and the sparkles surrounded and
dissolved Zordon's image, then more swept up Alpha, then the two swirls of gold sparkles
flew out the main cylinder of the Power
Chamber's exterior and into the wormhole in space.
When the Rangers
returned after destroying Amphibitor and disabling the wormhole closer, Lerigot told
them that Zordon and Alpha were home, and he then left.
