He slithered through the grass and dirt, hissing and searching for prey. He was a snake, a snake named Metus. He hissed with rage, rage from being turned into, this! A cowardly snake that slithered on the dirt that used to be sand. "curse that, Mata Nui!" he hissed in anger, "He turned me into the creature I am! And he brought the tribes against my united army! Why when I see him again I-" as he was about to finish, he felt a cold wind go down his scaly neck. He looked to where the breeze came from and saw...a mask? It was as black as the shadowy night, and a green mist flowed from it, that struck fear into the transforme agori. "come...." said a cold raspy voice. The snake slithered slowly towards the mask and examined it.
"...you know Mata Nui?" the mask said, apparently a spirit was talking to snake,
"know him? Wish I didn't! He turned me into this! He defeated my army!" the snake hissed,
"so....you have met the Great Spirit?" the mask asked,
"yes, yes I did..."
"I see an opertunety for the both of us,"
"I want revenge, as do you. I can give you power, enough to kill him, a...win win as they say,"
"how do I trust a talkin mask?"
"snakes are just as untrustworthy,"
"...it's agreed I suppose,"
"where is Mata Nui?"
The snake looked around and saw a city, it was roughly a few bio away. "maybe at that city?" the snake gestures its head to the city,
"touch the mask, and you will be stronger than you where before,"
And without hesitation, with a lustful look in his eyes for power, his tail touched the mask and a black flame eclipsed the snake.
Chapter 1: The Rogues
"Run old man run!!!" he yelled running as fast as he could. His name was Deusui, a toa of sonics, and an assassin for hire.
"You toa nowadays," the old being said, "always in a rush, why when I was a toa-"
"don't start with me Turaga Vakama!" Deusui said, "we don't have time for any of your history lessons! That was more than a mellinia ago! Right now we have to get these masks to safety like you said! Why are we even doing this?!"
"Those masks are special!" Vakama said, "hurry we a re almost to the Rememberance!"
"Turaga Vakama you are one crazy old man if you believe these masks can stop Metus,"
The Rememberance was the tallest building in the city, in te middle of it infact. It was a shrine to the fallen, those who died for freedom, and those who lived to tell their tales. It happened to be where the Mask of Life, the Ignika was kept safe and locked away.
The two were almost there, until the sounds of mechanical feet could be ears in the ally ways. Deusui's sensitive eating could pick it up faster than Vakama, and he stopped and looked around fast. He grabbed the Turaga, and tossed him on his back. "hold on tight!" he said activating his Mask of Stealth, "we've got Bounty Toa on us!"
