Regarding Potential Subversion / Variation #1: What about actually promoting the Mysterious Protector to full-fledged Sixth Ranger? (Without making him a Sixth Ranger Traitor, which brings you back to what everybody else does.) This could be helped by S/V suggestion #3 (Actually Equal Partner/Rival) allowing him to prove he can get the job done (but don't overdo that; after all, #3 emphases equal).
