Marah and Kapri

Lothor's nieces6 ("by marriage," he qualified7), Marah and Kapri served among Lothor's forces (Lothor noted having been asked to take them "for the summer"8 and threatened to banish them "back to [their] parents"9). Marah later betrayed Dustin10, to her apparent regret11. The duo eventually appeared to scheme against Lothor12, but this was part of his plan to open the Abyss of Evil; Lothor then left the duo in his self-destructing ship, but they escaped with "cousin" Cam's help and subsequently joined the Wind Ninja Academy13.

History

Ninja Storm

After Lothor's banishment from Earth, he amassed an army of evil space ninjas29 (traveling "through time and space" to do so, according to the Scroll of Destiny30). His initial forces included Marah, Kapri, Zurgane, Choobo, and Kelzaks31 (as well as the Thunder Rangers for a time32, but he was later joined by the robot Motodrone33, the alien bounty hunter Vexacus34, and the ancient warlord Shimazu35. While conspiring against Lothor, Vexacus later destroyed Zurgane36 and Motodrone37; pretending to scheme on their own, Marah and Kapri destroyed Shimazu38 and sent Vexacus to his doom, triggering the Abyss of Evil to overflow39. The Rangers (and freed ninja students) defeated Lothor's resurrected forces and knocked Lothor into the abyss, which then imploded shut40.

Dino Thunder

Lothor later escaped from the abyss, bringing two new allies with him, and Marah and Kapri volunteered to help (now with ninja skills)41. Venturing into the abyss, Cam, Hunter, and Blake battled Zurgane and assorted forces to retrieve the Samurai Amulet (with the help of Sensei, whom Marah and Kapri secretly freed); Zurgane and said forces then emerged and (unsuccessfully) battled the Dino Rangers and Ninja Storm Rangers42. Marah and Kapri then joined the Rangers in watching Blake's race43.


Q&A

Were Marah and Kapri definitely sisters? Could they have been cousins instead?

They weren't expressly stated to be sisters (?). Both were said to be Lothor's nieces44 (related by marriage45), and both addressed Cam as "cousin"46, but these relations could still apply if Marah and Kapri were cousins instead of sisters. This would mean, however, that when Lothor threatened to banish both "back to [their] parents47 (the ones who suggested Lothor keep Marah and Kapri for the summer48?), he was referring to their respective sets of parents. Is this unlikely?

What happened to Choobo?

After escaping the destruction of Lothor's ship, Choobo was present among Lothor's forces at the site of the Abyss of Evil; he and other generals were last seen being blasted by the Red Battlized Ranger. It's unknown whether they were destroyed at this point, or perhaps otherwise dealt with by the ninja students on site or sucked into the abyss when it imploded49, but note that Zurgane (also last seen blasted alongside Choobo) later appeared in the abyss50.
