Zakano turaga of iron and vanoka his frost walker
As a toa he was never known by anyone to exist he was transformed into a toa by falling into a pool of poisoned water then being saved by a toa of water that sacrificed her life to remove the poison and give him a life as a toa. As a toa he defended an island from a natural disaster during this disaster he was helped by a toa named laviki. He always felt a connection to rahi. He was also a very active and adventures matoran and toa. When he was transformed into a turaga he didn’t go with the being calm and a wise village leader and relying on others to defend him. So he maintained his active lifestyle. If you look past the decreases power and size he would be just the same as a turaga as he was a toa. He always has a frost walker with him.
As a toa he carried a large scythe and wore a mask of fate. As a turaga he wields a smaller scythe and wears a badly dented and scarred noble mask of fate so he can still be agile with this mask even as a turaga.
As a toa his elemental power was iron now his elemental abilities has decreased but can form a metal wall in front of him.
He will sit in a hollow of vanoka’s (his frost walker) back and ride vanoka for long distances. He has mastered the language of the frost walkers.
frost walkers are rahi that often will become attached to turaga and will allow the turaga to use them as a mode of tranportation. unkown to most turaga and the frost walkers is that after the turaga and the frost walker have developed a strong trust that the turaga can tap into the frostwalkers hidden ability that amplifies the turaga's elemental powers to that of almost the toa level.
the frost walker are capable of short distance flight but mostly walk. they have two bone-like weapons on their hands one that resembles a hook and another one that resembles a thin yet sharp sword. the rahi also have a needle like appendage on their head that acts as a weapon and a mouth. these rahi can survive in many different environments but prefer snowy regions.
