He holds a golden key that is capable of opening intergalactic portals throughout the universe. He is the descendant of ancient wizards who imprisoned Maligore on the island of Muiranthias. Lerigot is a short and furry male who wears wizardly robes. He uses the key to channel his magical energies allowing him to heal others, teleport himself, as well as other unknown powers. Lerigot can only barely speak human languages but apparently can understand humans perhaps through some form of ESP (Extra-Sensory Perception).
Divatox came to Liaria to capture Lerigot and force him to use his magical powers to guide her Subcraft through the Nemesis Triangle to Muiranthias and also to open the passage to Maligore’s resting place. To make sure that he did what she wanted, Divatox kidnapped his wife Yara and his baby daughter Bethel. They were all rescued by the Turbo Rangers, but also they managed to cure their human friends, Jason and Kimberly, of the evil effects that Maligore had on them.
At the beginning of the television series, Lerigot had learned how to speak English, though he did not speak it fluently. He was called to the Power Chamber by Zordon and Alpha 5, to free Zordon from the time warp so he could return to Eltar and Alpha can accompany him. Once he did so, Lerigot himself returned to Liaria and is never heard from again.
