In the Series
In "Two Worlds", when he meets Guren for the first time he throws a paper airplane at his head. He's then chosen by Ms. Finwick to be Guren's guide during his first day. After school, they visit the Shop of Wonders, run by a man named Mr. White. He is drawn to the blue brick, but can't make it transform into a robot like Guren did with his. That night, he had a dream about being a robot, where he fought another robot. The next day, he's shocked to hear Guren had a similar dream. Together, he and Guren go back to Mr. White's shop to learn more about their bricks, only to be transported to Quarton instead. Unlike Guren, who was able to use his powers immediately, Ceylan was trapped in a cube-like form until Guren found him.
In "Tenkai Dragon Cube", Ceylan seemed to want to give up the role of hero, unlike Guren. But after they fought the Corrupted army led by Vilius for the first time and won, he decided to stay a Tenkai Knight. Ceylan also meets the Tenkai Knights Lydendor and Valorn for the first time.
Shortly after Ceylan worked with Guren to try and track down the other two Tenkai Knights, they eventually meet Chooki and Toxsa. Their friendship gets off to a bumpy start, but in the end, they all agree on working together to achieve victory after finding the third Dragon Cube.
In "The Power of Four", Ceylan and the rest of the boys are starting come together as a team when Ceylan learns from his father that he may be moving away. When Ceylan finally reveals this to the others they unlock the ability to combine their Tenkai Cores, and worked together to form the Protojet.
In "Tributon Extreme", Ceylan and Guren met a mysterious new student by the name of Gen. Back on Quarton, Tributon fought off the Corrupted and achieved Tenkai Titan mode in order to save the other Knights when they were captured and injured.
In "Dragon's Key", Ceylan and Toxsa stood guard over the Dragon's Nest, while Guren and Chooki tried to find clues to the location of the White Dragon Key. Ceylan and Toxsa were eventually forced to go Titan Mode in order to hold the nest. Ceylan was able to hold the Corrupted off, but he and Valorn were soon overrun.
In "Vilius Unleashed", Ceylan and Toxsa were still fighting to hold the Dragon's Nest, when Guren and Chooki arrived with Boreas and combine the Dragon Cube's and awaken the Tenkai Dragon. Later, Ceylan watches helplessly as Dromus captures the Dragon and transports it to Vilius base. He then watches as Guren defeats Vilius.
Later, in "Oh No, I Didn't", Ceylan starts suffering from self-doubt when Guren absent-mindedly asks him why they were chosen to be the new Tenkai Knights. Guren's question leads Ceylan to wonder what skills he brings to the team. When he goes to Quarton to ask Beag what he brings to the team, Beag misinterprets the question and the pair are attacked by Slyger and Granox. When Ceylan attempts to fight the pair alone he is overwhelmed by their new Titan Mode transformations. After this, Ceylan is convinced that the other boys would be better off without him and quits the team. When they are summoned to Quarton, Ceylan at first refuses to go, but upon seeing a vision of the others in danger, rushes off to help. When he arrived, he helped the others defeat Slyger and Granox, his faith in himself restored.
In "The Key to Evil", after Beni tricked the boys and sent them to Quarton, Ceylan met Guardian Eurus. He then fought against a clone of himself created by Eurus.
