Dana Mitchell is the deuteragonist in Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue. She is the daughter of Captain Mitchell and the younger sister of Ryan Mitchell. She is the Pink Lightspeed Rescue Ranger, as well a paramedic. She is a member of the Lightspeed Rangers. She is also Carter Grayson's love interest.
Dana is serious, intellectual, caring and level-headed. She gathers the team together from all over Mariner Bay, and is a valuable asset to the team as one of the Rangers. Dana has a very brief stint as a model, but she resigns when it starts to interfere in her Ranger duties.
She is later reconciled with her long-lost brother, Ryan, who joins them as the Titanium Ranger.
During the series, she develops feelings for Carter Grayson, the Red Ranger, but it's unknown if she has expressed them yet, the feelings seems to be mutual. An example is in the episode The Last Ranger, when the Rangers, save Dana, lose their memories, Carter sees Dana get hurt and it restores his memories.
Following the defeat of Queen Bansheera, Dana fulfilled dream of becoming a doctor, and practices as a pediatrician. She returns to duty and fights alongside the Time Force Rangers when Vypra returns from the dead.
- Interestingly, Dana is the first Pink Ranger to break the tradition of having a name that begins with a "K-" sound, her predecessors being (in chronological order): Kimberly Ann Hart, Katherine Hillard, Cassie Chan, Kendrix Morgan, and Karone.
