A resistance pilot against the army of Digald, Ron Mangan, or Ron served alongside his closest friend and ally, Thunder Garaga up until the Empire's large scale seige of their city. As the battle raged, those of the resistance cell were forced to either flee or face the full firepower of the Empire's newest weapons. Mechanical life forms that were impervious to nearly all forms of damage.
While many lost their lives in battle, Ron along with Garaga stayed behind to help evacuate everyone out of the battlefield before making a daring escape themselves. The fight was close, but they managed to dodge the bullet just in time.
Ron is an enigma to anyone he meets. he is charming, but oddly suspicious, and with knowledge beyond that of a normal resident. And while most pilot smaller Zoids, Ron has a unique mech which many have never seen before, and that it possesses serious firepower that could pose a serious threat to the Empire, should he use it. While many suspected him to be a Digald agent, the former traveling merchant was far from loyal to this expansionist regime. Later in their travels, Ron revealed himself to be of Sora City. A long lost sky fortress hidden high above the atmosphere. The very last descendants of the ancient civilization of humans, whom still had vast amounts of knowledge of their past. Unlike those of the ground, detailed records were kept before the great cataclysm fell upon planet Zi.
As the war grew, the situation became dire. Ron was fearful that the Digald Empire might even have an army amassed capable enough to take out even Sora City~ A problem that he was personally sent to investigate on. And in a final decision he agreed to take the team to the city with the help of an ancient Zoid, the Gild Dragon. But, those of Sora City saw this as a serious omen of things to come, and tried Ron for crimes against his home. Before we was on trial however, the Digald Empire attacked and destroyed Sora City, forcing him to evacuate to the ground before it crashed.
Even with his home gone, Ron would continue to fight alongside his friends in order to stop the Digald Empire from taking over Zi.
