Ramdas "Ram" Mehta is a main character in the show Aaron Stone. She has a strong Indian accent and lives in India. She is portrayed by Canadian actress Jesse Rath.
Ram is first introduced in the pilot episode, "Hero Rising". Ram, along with her brother Vas Mehta, are first introduced as gamer friends of Charlie Landers. Vas and Ram live all the way in Kolkata, India- while Charlie is assumed to live in either Canada or the USA. The brothers and Charlie met through the game Hero Rising. Ram and her brother then proceed to play the game with Charlie and his brother Jason Landers after Jason makes an avatar.
Ram is a computer obsessed geek, whom is a genius in the arts of cracking codes, gathering information, on occasion hacking (but for all good purposes) and of course is a player with a high class reputation in the game Hero Rising. Ram's avatar Lethal Lotus. Her avatar is a long haired haired ninja girl that is dressed in pink.
Ram wears a helmet often times. The helmet is a grey skater helmet that Ram attached to her mouth piece and Hero Rising headset to. It also has some spike like things at the top of the helm, assumed to be decorations. It isn't explained why Ram made the helmet for her headset, but she wears it every time she plays Hero Rising and nearly all the time. In season 1, Ram slowly began wearing the helmet less, displaying bedhead or helmet hair. Eventually, in season 2, it became rare for Ram to sport the helmet.
Ram and Vas often make references to pop culture and Ram has implied she thinks Aaron is attractive. Ram has also stated she's never kissed a boy, having been panicking in "Rockin' The Free World" that they were all going to die and saying "Now I'll never get to kiss a boy!". Near the series end in Metal Gear Liquid, Ram implies she still hasn't kissed a boy, when she and his brother awkwardly discuss Vas catching Ram kissing herself in the mirror 'practicing for a real boy'. Though both siblings are apparently single, desperate for love interests and very low on the social scale, Ram doesn't seem to mind at all. She also doesn't make as much of an effort to nor dream about increasing her social status, which contrasts with Vas' personality.
Ram is very random and often butchers English teen slang, which is meant as comic relief. Unlike Vas, she's more likely to panic (as seen in the beginning of "Rockin' The Free World"), a little more immature, quite wacky and very spontaneous. She has bursts of enthusiasm, like when she popped out dressed as Vesuvius, and bursts of emotional malfunctions, like when she would cry every time Jason Landers' caused trouble by being a reckless gamer in "From Hero To Xero". Some of her personality traits can be compared to Jason's, while Vas' can be compared to Charlie. Besides speculation that they are twins, audiences suspect Ram is younger than Vas due to these personality traits.
Season 1[edit | edit source]
In "Rockin' The Free World", Aaron Stone reveals himself to Vas and Ram. It is Charlie's first revealing done out of free will. This notion makes known the friendship and trust Charlie shares with the brothers. This is also the first episode in which the brothers meet Charlie in person- mostly due to the fact that the brothers don't believe his first revealing when done over Hero Rising headsets. Aaron Stone then shows up outside their bedroom window, atop the S.S.J! The brothers then help Aaron hack into a video the Omega Defiance made that will make all its internet viewers brainwashed. Vas and Ram proceed to save the day, making a live worldwide broadcast of themselves rapping and dancing rather than displaying the video. Its speculated the Omega Defiance could have a grudge held toward the boys for this act. Since that achievement, Vas and Ram serve as Aaron Stone's "tech support". It is difficult to determine exactly what Vas and Ram do and do not know about the situation at hand- they know Aaron Stone is real and are keeping his existence secret, but it isn't specified whether or not they know of Charlie Landers or other aspects of the situation.
Ram shares a room with Vas and they have computers which allow them to do many things. Most of their scenes have been done from their room- however, in the episode "Chuck And Charlie" they left their room for the first time to go on a mission along side Emma- to find an antidote for Charlie who had inhaled a toxin that made him very aggressive. They seem to live with their family since a reference was made to their parents not allowing one of the brothers to play hero rising for a week due to not finishing his homework, brief mentions of their father have been made as well. Apparently, they work for their father.
Season 2[edit | edit source]
Ram, as well as Vas, do not seem to have as big of parts in the show as they did at the end of season 1. Often, they are shown only for a few seconds, as they are part of team Aaron Stone, but are absent in many episodes. They, however, do have a few episodes in which they are vital characters, such as Metal Gear Liquid and the series finale, Mutant Rain.
In season 2, Ram and his brother are very deeply involved in Team Aaron Stone and, as depicted near the end of season 1, the enemies see them as vital informats- this results in them being kidnapped as often as Emma is and in as much jeopardy as anyone involved with Hall Industries.
It is revealed in the series finale that Ram and Vas have told their mother they are going to a schoolmate's house, in India, whenever they are called by Aaron for assistance and are actually half way around the world. They have apparently kept Charlie's secret from their own family, which is somewhat hard to believe since they have nearly spilled the beans to Jason and several other people on occasion. He also is one of the few to see T. Abner Hall's face after he reveals it to Aaron and his team.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Ram helps Aaron Stone by cracking codes, hacking, gathering information on people and basically anything else that can be done through his computer and from his and Vas' room. Ram, despite his wackiness, also is intelligent and at times can aide Aaron with general knowledge. Though not specified, it is easy to assume Ram is on T. Abner Hall's side, due to his association with Aaron Stone.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
