Voltron Force


Daniel is one of three new cadets for the Voltron Force. Of Asian descent, he and Vince were once cadets for the Galaxy Alliance until they became the "cadets".

  • Ascended Fanboy: He's always been a fan of Voltron.
  • The Corruption: Becomes infected with Haggarium while in control of Voltron and swears the other cadets to silence. He uses it to good effect to increase his fighting skills and read the thoughts of the Spider/Wade Robeast in the battle that earned him the Black Lion seat, but it also causes him to become a raging Blood Knight. The end of season one suggests it may have become a case of Comes Great Insanity.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Okay, so Daniel is touted as the Plucky Comic Relief of the cadets, he's always rushing into a fight when even he knows he shouldn't, and is frequently taken down by bad guys with one hit. Digested all that? Well, here's what this same guy is capable of doing when he quits fooling around: Giving Volton a Super Speed boost, not to mention taking out an entire space-station of robot-mooks with minimal back-up.
  • I Just Want to Be Special
  • Jumped at the Call
  • Rookie Red Ranger: Gain the role of Black Lion pilot after Keith retires. He loses the position after his inability to work with the others nearly costs them the battle against Maahox. Despite this Keith still believes he will earn the right to lead the team again

  • Mysterious Past: He has some kind of power that links him to Voltron, the reason why is currently unknown. Vince's power acts as a "Key" in enabling Voltron to reconfigure each lion to form the main body and give it new powers.
