Season ThreeEdit

Itzpa first appeared at the Peace Keeper's bed. She later appeared when Amaru was kidnapped by Seth, Scott, and the Professor. Amaru called her telepathically to come to her aid. Itzpa later reveals her true appearance and identity to Ranger Gonzalez. She proceeds to fight and successfully scratch Scott and Ranger Gonzales. When Kate temporarily took control of her body, she revealed that Amaru set the team up, and she was actually looking for the Spirit Guides. Itzpa then fools the Peace Keeper into calling his family and listens to their conversation. When she figured out where his family (the spirit guides) were, she communicated to Amaru telepathically. She then takes Amaru's followers and takes Gonzalez' child and ex-wife. Although she is later interrupted by Gonzalez, Richie, and Burt, she stayed to fight while the rest of Amaru's followers take Gonzalez' family. She is then killed by both Burt and Gonzalez.
