Kitai Raige is the son of legendary ranger, Cypher Raige. He lives on Nova Prime, mankind's new home. He is currently a Ranger Cadet training for the United Ranger Corps, and also the youngest person to achieve "Ghosting" in the movie. Kitai is also the second child of Cypher and Faia Raige, the first child being his deceased sister, Senshi.

In the spacecraft[]

Kitai traveled with his father, Cypher, and other rangers to oversee "Ghosting" training on another planet. A caged Ursa was also on board. However, an asteroid storm suddenly appeared causing them to have to travel through a wormhole to get out of it. This caused massive damage to the spacecraft, and forced them to crash-land on Earth.While entering the Earth's gravitational pull, the spacecraft fell apart causing the tail and the hold of the spacecraft to land one-hundred kilometers away from each other, and the deaths of the entire crew except for Cypher and Kitai. In the crash, both of Cypher's legs were broken, and Kitai was given the mission to retrieve the emergency beacon in the tail. His materials included only six oxygen capsules, a cutlass, a wrist communicator, and a medical kit.

On Earth[]

As soon as he left the ship Kitai started to panic. In a calm voice his father told him via wrist communicator to "take a knee". After calming down, Kitai was instructed to keep going towards the tail. On the way a baboon noticed Kitai. Cypher told Kitai to stand still but Kitai panicked and threw a rock at the baboon, causing the primate to summon more baboons. Kitai was chased in the forest until he reached a river that he managed to cross swiftly. When he reached the other side however, he realized several oxygen capsules were crushed in his escape. He lied to his father about the amount of capsules he has left so he could continue on his mission.

Cypher noticed on Kitai's vitals screen that his blood had a toxin in it. Kitai frantically looked himself over and found a parasite on his left hand. Cypher told Kitai how to administer the antidote, and Kitai with much difficulty successfully administered it, but due to the paralyzing agent Kitai fell to the ground and was forced to sleep there. When he woke up he narrowly escaped freezing to death in the nightly dangerous temperatures of the planet by reaching a warm spot. There his father told him how "ghosting" was invented.

The next day, Kitai reached the midway point on top of a waterfall. There Cypher figured out he was lying to him about how many oxygen capsules he had. Cypher told Kitai to abandon the mission and that is when Kitai's emotions exploded and he told Cypher that he blamed him for his sister's (Senshi's) death. After telling Cypher that he was a coward, Kitai jumped off the cliff and activated his life-suit so he could glide on the air. He was then suddenly attacked by a giant condor. In the attack his wrist communicator was damaged and Kitai was knocked unconscious.

He woke up in the condor's nest and was about to leave when the nest was attacked by tigers. They tried to eat the condor chicks but only succeeded in killing them as Kitai and the giant condor drove them off. Kitai then walked away as the giant condor mourned for her chicks.

Kitai built a raft and went down the river but fell asleep and dreamt of his sister. In his dream Senshi was warning him to wake up but he kept overtalking her. Suddenly Senshi's face was mangled and torn as it was when she died protecting him. Kitai woke up with a jerk and realized that it was getting late in the day and everything was freezing over. He ran off of the raft and tried desperately to find a thermal hotspot but in seconds it was too cold to move and he fainted and stumbled onto the frozen grass.

He was dragged into a small hole in the ground by the giant condor and kept warm even though the condor sacrificed its life for him in the process. Kitai was crestfallen when he woke up and realized what happened.

The day after, Kitai finally reached the tail and immediately located and takes two oxygen capsules. He also found the emergency beacon and replaced the damaged wrist communicator and the missing cutlass his father gave him. Kitai was frustrated when the beacon didn't activate. He figured out that the electrical interference from the atmosphere was blocking the signal. He traveled to the nearby volcano so that he could activate the beacon from the volcano's peak, not knowing that the Ursa that had been caged on the ship had survived the crash and escaped from its cage.

Kitai found bodies impaled on branched. Cypher told his son that they were set up by the the apparently living Ursa in order to scare Kitai. They do scare him, and Cypher tells Kitai, "It has found you."

The Ursa found Kitai and made to attack him but Kitai made a mad dash up to the peak of the volcano; he was then suddenly attacked by the creature. As he lay on the ground, struggling for air, Kitai remembered the advice from his father, and the words from his sister, and he was able to get his fear under control and "ghost." He killed the Ursa, who was blind to him then as his fear was masked, and activated the emergency beacon. Both he and his father were rescued.

On their way back to Nova Prime Kitai told his father as they embraced, "Dad....I wanna work with mom."
