Ryan was more than determined to reunite himself with his father. To his surprise Dark Heart, one of the Grimlord's warriors, had human DNA and discovered he was his father. After Dark Heart lost to Ryan in a fight, he ordered him to destroyed him but Ryan refused. Dark Heart was sent for termination by the other mutants. By running away, he is seriously damaged and Ryan brought him to the lab to discover he is indeed Ryan's father. Ryan gives his father his memories back but Dark Heart is determined to defeat Grimlord because he felt it is his responsibility. He fought alongside Ryan but is defeated in battle and taken to Grimlord. He is then rescued by Ryan and taken to a secret lab in the mountains to be repaired. Dark Heart and Ryan survive the lab being destroyed by Air Striker. Together, they infiltrate Grimlord's dungeon and fall into a trap. Grimlord planned to replaced the oxygen with poison. They managed to escape but Dark Heart was severely hurt by one of Grimlord's goons. He became human again but was taken by Grimlord. Ryan fought for video message of Tyler trying to escape Grimlord's facility, giving proof to Ryan that his father was still alive.
Later through their journey, Grimlord conducted a knowledge transfer with the Prism of Empowerment to extract secret information from Tyler Steele's mind. He sent a message of distress that let Ryan know he was imprisoned. Jeb entered Grimlord's portal to his castle without Ryan knowing. He intended to deactivate the DNA censor but ended up being caught and imprisoned along with Tyler. Ryan eventually arrived to the prison cell but Grimlord's goons had already moved his father. Grimlord self-destructed his own castle to make room for the new. Ryan and Jeb survived the blast. The Troopers then tracked Tyler down to a cave but J.B. and Kaitlin were captured as well. Ryan saved his friends and father but he lost his powers, disobeying Professor Hart's advice. The knowledge transfer completely exhausted Tyler. With the help of his old friend Tao, he was healed. Then, Ryan, J.B. and Tyler created new armor and arsenal for Ryan. The new powers were just enough to take down Girmlord's new forces, developed with the knowledge stolen from Ryan's father.
