An actual picture?
One of me!?
Are you sure!?
Say it isn't so!
This can't be so!
Say it isn't so, yo!
I really need to stop trying to write songs. But, yeah -- piccy of me, you see, what an anomaly. Which reminds me of today's character teaser, the Dark Hunter Anomaly.
Who is he? What are his powers?
So, you remember Dacres/Terror and Sekrit/Rage from earlier, correct? Anomaly -- or, as he is commonly known, Ventelis -- is another Dark Toa, as such I won't be getting into his backstory very much. This time, though, there's a twist! Whilst the others had fathomable powers, Anomaly controls a completely different element. That element is technology.
Rather odd, right? That's what Ventelis thought at first, as well. Out of the other Dark Toa, he had the toughest time learning to control his new powers -- Dark Hunter computers went crazy as he walked by, simple machinery exploded ta a touch. However, now that he has mastered his power, he is a force to be reckoned with. His ability to control his mechanical bullets, fire through his teched-out sniper rifle, allows him to easily redirect his shots so that they hit has targets. At a range, he can effectively shut down communications between team members using his Kanohi Stalis, Mask of Incomprehension; many groups of heroes have met their end through this, as they are unable to warn the others of the danger approaching from behind. Ventelis himself is emotionless and silent, preferring silence to loud noises -- as is the way of the hunter...
Who does he work with? Against?
Ventelis works alongside Dacres, Sekrit and the other two Dark Toa, following their lead whilst making himself heard through his skills. Unlike the others, he harbors no dislike towards any other group within the Dark Hunters -- any attack made by him is merely his following of an order, unless otherwise stated.
However, he does hate plants with a passion, going so far as to ignite an entire forest so as to clear the area of vegetation, as well as any other creatures that might reside within it -- living, dead or in between.
Anomaly... What a cool name! And to think, it only took me a whole couple of months to think of it. Anyway, compared to earlier versions of this character, Ventelis is everything I've ever wanted in a stealth hunter: silence, proficiency and drive -- a true anomaly, as you'll find out later on.
