Frax is a villain in the television series Power Rangers: Time Force.

Frax is voiced by Eddie Frierson and his human form is portrayed by Jeff Griggs.

OriginEdit

Dr. Louis Fericks was a scientist who was looking for a cure for the criminal Ransik who was given a unique poison. Ransik repaid him by destroying his lab. To survive the explosion, Fericks turned himself into a cyborg and eventually joined forces with Ransik as a criminal.

Frax is a robot in the service of Ransik, responsible for constructing the army of robot minions that Ransik sends against the Time Force Power Rangers. A robot himself, he dislikes Ransik's belief that robots are inferior, as well as the mutant's habits of destroying his creations when he is angry. This rage goes unnoticed by Ransik for much of the series until Frax's Fury, when Frax finally takes his anger out on him. Frax's arsenal consists of a claw arm that transforms into a hand-like missile launcher. It is later revealed that Frax is actually all that is left of Dr. Louis Fericks (portrayed by Jeff Griggs), the scientist from the future who attempted to heal Ransik of his poisoning by Venomark, a mutant criminal who is later captured and placed in the X-Vault. He also provides the serum that Ransik must consume regularly to combat the poison, expecting nothing in return; Dr. Fericks was a truly compassionate human, not caring about who or what he helped. Ransik destroys his lab, steals the serum supplies, and leaves him for dead in return. Dr. Fericks only survives by rebuilding himself into a robot, and resents Ransik for his actions. Later in the series, Frax ends up discovering the key to the X-Vault (where the worst prisoners are contained) after being admonished for sending his robotic creation Tronicon to destroy the Ranger. He releases many of them without Ransik's approval, including Venomark (an action that particularly angers Ransik due to their past history). As a form of revenge, he destroys all of his serum, reveals his true identity to Ransik, and runs away from Ransik and the Cyclobots on Ransik's side. However, Wes found the sample of the serum that Ransik left behind and Bio Lab began producing the serum to treat the citizens infected by Venomark. Despite this, he begins constructing massive robots that run on powerful Trizirium crystals from Mr. Collins' lab. In the series finale, Frax is captured by Ransik with the aid of Gluto (who finds Frax's hideout) while working on his giant robot Doomtron. Nadira, Ransik's daughter, comes to him after she begins to doubt her father's mission. Frax explains that the hatred and prejudice between humans and mutants is a vicious cycle and he urges her to break it before being taken away and having his memory erased. He is then reprogrammed to obey Ransik and to use his robot Doomtron to destroy his enemies. Wes is able to return and destroy Doomtron, causing Frax to shut down as a result. 

Frax
Frax is to Ransik what Circuit is to the Rangers. He creates weapons and devices for the team, and even built the machine which took them back in time. On the surface, Frax seems to be a loyal robot who exists only to serve Ransik. What they don't realize is that Frax has his own agenda, and constantly devises his own schemes behind Ransik's back. He has his own private army of mutants, thanks to his discovery of the infamous X-Vault - prison to the most vile criminals. He despises both humans and mutants, and plans on one day having robots rule the world.

Frax was not always a robot though. He was once an upstanding human know as Dr. Fericks. He showed an ailing Ransik kindness, only to be betrayed. Ransik burned down his lab, and left him for dead, but Fericks survived, and transformed his body into a robotic one, becoming Frax. The once kind doctor now only knew how to hate. He joined Ransik's forces, plotting to take him down one day like he did to him. Ransik eventually discovered who Frax was, and had him hunted down and turned into a mindless robot, which piloted Doomtron to its own destruction.
