A way, way, WAY long time ago I made an original sentai ranger team called Minuteman. I think they had a lot to do with the theme of time, so the only thing I'm really reviving here is the name. This team protects basic rights of expression and as such fight against those who seek to suppress, subjugate, or terrorize others. Their theme, design, and names are heavily influenced by the American Revolutionary War, the 1st Amendment of the Bill of Rights, Presidents, Founding Fathers, philosophers, etc. Despite all the influences from that era, some inspiration is taken from the French involvement in that history.
"Droit" is French for 'right' as in liberties, freedoms, etc. Minuteman was a term given to American militas who were readily able to quickly respond to threats. Corps is a nice stand in for squadron but also a homonym for core, as in core/basic human rights.

Green Stag of Assembly/Quinn A. Franklin (named after John Quincy Adams, Alexander Hamilton, and Benjamin Franklin)
Blue Lark of Petition/Abby F. Lafayette (named after Abigail Adams, François-Marie Arouet[Voltaire], and Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette[his full title is super long])
White Eagle of Life/George R. Lafayette (named after George Washington, René Descartes, and Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette)
Rankings by stars: White 6, Red 5, Black 4, Yellow 3, Green 2, Blue 1. Red and Blue are romantic interests. Blue and White are siblings from France, hence their last name Lafayette and their middle names being two very famous French philosophers. The males' first names are the first six Presidents of the US in reverse order of their rank: White/6 is George Washington, 1st President; Red/5 is John Adams, 2nd President; Black/4 is Thomas Jefferson, 3rd President; Yellow/3 is James Madison/Monroe, 4th and 5th Presidents; Green is John Quincy Adams, 6th President. Stars feature in their designs, but their belt buckle is the French fluer-de-lis. In my head's story, the powers, suits, etc., are based on earlier French designs so the buckle is an homage to that.
The general design of their suits is made to look slightly reminiscent of soldiers of the Revolutionary War era, especially Continental Soldiers. As the sixth, White gets changed up a bit with epaulet-like shoulder armor and a cape. White's helmet also has three stars rather than one: symbolizing life, liberty, and happiness; or executive, legislative, and judicial. Their helmets aren't too influenced by their animals, save for a little bit of detail on the visors. The helmets are supposed to look slightly like trifold hats, which I know makes them look very similar to Gokaiger's helmets. But I tried to differentiate them a little bit.
Everything here is my hard work. Please don't touch anything without permission. Thanks.
