He wasn't always the scientist of the Nynrah area. He used to be...important. Tridax was a name known across the Brotherhood- rightfully respected. He was the one who had done the real work on the most useful experiment, the Shadow Leeches. He was the one who'd found the amazing Olmak and realized its potential.
And what had they done? They wouldn't let him go to Karda Nui. They hadn't put him in a place of power. They'd shoved him in a place so pathetic its inhabitants we're referred to as "ghosts."
He stared at the Olmak which sat behind glass across from him. Its empty eye sockets. Small scratches on the sides from where he'd pried it from a Toa's head.
It called to him. It spoke his name.
They'd tossed him to the side. Thrown him away like a piece of trash. Did they not deserve his wrath? He'd sided with Teridax because he wanted change. He wanted power. That was why he'd rushed to the side of the Makuta of Metru Nui.
Before he knew what he was doing, the glass was broken. His mask was being replaced by the Olmak. Power surged through him. Oh...the things he could do!
Should he bring in an army? Should he drop Teridax in a volcano? Maybe he should call a meeting and announce his superiority by killing off any Makuta who'd insulted him. No, he had to be more subtle than that. He would show them what he could do. He'd create an army of the most powerful warriors known to Makuta. Someone who had bested Teridax himself. Takanuva. He'd create an army of alternate Takanuvas. He was entirely able to do it.
He'd show them.
Tridax activated his mask, and the world around him warped. The first thing he felt was mud in his boots. The next thing was someone soaring overhead. Before he registered it, the back of his head had contact with the mud. There was an orange blur heading towards two other beings. A blue Toa and a tall, white and grey one. More of a gunmetal, actually.
He heard bits of their conversation, and the word Takanuva. It didn't take his genius mind to figure out the situation. A portal opened up under the tall Toa, and he tumbled into it. Tridax was soon in after him. He crashed into glass, and he realized it was the larvae.
Rolling off the table with a groan, he watched as the alternate reality Takanuva stood. The Toa looked angry. In his hand he clutched Tridax's own acid-tipped staff. Tridax unleashed one of his many powers on him, and the staff was magnetized away. Tridax immediately slung one of the larvae towards his captive. It had contact with his left arm.
As the Toa dropped to the ground, failing to tear it off, Tridax smiled cruelly. A scream escaped the Toa's lips, in pure agony. This larvae was...more painful than the average shadow leech. Especially to a Toa of light. He knew even now that this would be a lot of work. But it was worth it. He would prove himself.
He would show them.
