The Earth was attacked by evil beings called Orgs over 3000 years ago. But the earth was defended by six ancient warriors, who used the power of their Crystal Sabers to hide Princess Shayla and the Wild Zords on the Animarium in the sky. One of the six warriors was Merrick, who remained behind in an effort to fight the evil Orgs. Merrick was determined to destroy Master Org- and decided to seek out a legendery Wolf Mask, which was said to have great powers. Merrick found the Wolf Mask at Nayzor's temple, and put it on before he could be stopped. Merrick, infused with the power of the Mask, sought out Master Org and destroyed him. However, Merrick was unable to remove the Wolf Mask, and it bonded to him, and took over his body. Merrick was now under the control of Zen Aku, and set about rampaging throughout the land. The other five warriors confronted him, and unable to fulfil his request to destroy him, chose to seal him inside a stone tomb.
3000 years later, the new Master Org ordered Zen Aku to be freed in order to destroy the Wild Force Rangers. Zen Aku swore vengence on the Wild Force Rangers for the actions of the original ancient warriors, unable to remember his past or anything about his life as Merrick. There were times when traces of Merricks personality was able to shine through the actions of Zen Aku. These occurances caused Zen Aku to remember his past life, which jepordised Nayzor's plans against the Rangers. Nayzor inplanted a bug inside Zen Aku, designed to cause him great pain any time he remembered his life as an ancient warrior.
Eventually, the Rangers realised that Zen Aku was only a Duke Org during the phase of the full moon, and a human the rest of the time. The Rangers decided to appeal to his humanity, and decided to confront Zen Aku while Animus blocked out the moon. This caused Zen Aku to revert to Merrick, who appeared confused and angry. Merrick had no idea who the Rangers were, but apologised for the evil he had done. It was not until they mentioned Princess Shayla did he cooperate. However, Merrick once again reverted back to Zen Aku when the moon was restored.
Princess Shayla revealed to the Rangers that the only was to stop Zen Aku was to defeat the Predazord in battle. The Rangers succeeded, and broke the power of the Wolf Mask. Merrick, now powerless, decided to redeem himself by taking on Master Org in order to retrieve the stolen Animal Crystals. He suffered greatly, until his old Wild Zords returned to him, and gave him the ability to transform into the Lunar Wolf Ranger.
Merrick declined an invitation to live on the Animarium, and decided to take up the offer of board at Willie's Roadhouse. Merrick contined to assist the Rangers in battle, but never fully integrated into the team. When the Rangers finally defeated the Orgs, Merrick decided to travel the world in search of adventure. As he set off alone, he was joined by a ressurected Zen Aku, who wanted to atone for the evil he had done.
