Carter Grayon is a superhero, a fire fighter and the leader of the Lightspeed Rangers in the TV series Power Rangers: Lightspeed Rescue.

Carter Grayson is played by Sean Cw Johnson.


Carter Grayson was a fire fighter chosen to become a Power Ranger and took on the leadership position as the Red Ranger.


Carter Grayson's parentage has not been revealed, but he grew up in the city of Marine Bay. When he was a child, Carter was rescued from a burning building by William Mitchell, a fire fighter and was inspired to become a firefighter as well. He trained hard and eventually became a firefighter in his home town.  At the time, Carter was unaware that Mitchell was the man who saved him, but Mitchell watched Carter closely, believing he had the potential to become a great firefighter.  Eventually, Carter became such a firefighter, though was also known for pulling risky daredevil manuevers.

Following a firefighter duty where he got a brief glimpse of the entity known as Ghouligan, Carter was approached by Dana and two of Captain Mitchell's men and brought to the Lightspeed Aquabase by her. He was the first to accept his role as a Lightspeed Power Ranger, a defender of Mariner's Bay and the Earth against the forces of the demon Queen Banseera and her minions.  To this end, Carter was given the role of leader and became the "Red Ranger" and was given a Morpher an object that would grant the user with fantastic powers and weapons.  He convinced the others chosen to become Rangers that the threat of Bansheera was real and to become a team.

He bravely took down Queen Bansheera in the final battle with the Demons, hurling her into the Shadow World for good. Carter returned to Firefighting after his time at Lightspeed Rescue. During the series, he develops serious romantic feelings for Dana, the Pink Ranger, and it appeared to be mutual. It is unknown if they became a couple afterwards, even though they were the only Lightspeed Rangers seen together prior to the final battle of Power Rangers: Super Megaforce. When Vypra returned from the dead and began terrorizing Silver Hills, Carter reunited the Lightspeed Rescue Rangers, who helped the Time Force Rangers defeat her. When the Machine Empire's forces unearthed Zedd's Serpentera to destroy Earth, Carter teamed up with nine other Red Rangers and travelled to the moon to stop them in the Wild Force episode "Forever Red" and Carter saves a girl who had become a hostage for the Red Rangers. He and Dana later appeared to help victims of the Warstar Armada's attack in Super Megaforce, and again with their teammates in the final battle. Carter is played by Sean Cw Johnson.


He is the serious and devoted leader of the Lightspeed team. He risked his life with his daredevil maneuvers, but always saved those in danger.
