Hm... I don't exactly see how formerly being an Av-Toa would makes his Shadow powers any more powerful than that of a normal Toa turned. That's just a small nitpick of mine, and it isn't that big of a deal. Otherwise...

And its character import/self insert/slight profile revamp time!
Species: Toa of Acid
Kanohi: Great Mask of Time Perception- Allows the user to speed up or slow down how a target (or themselves) perceives time.
Appearance: Just slightly above the average height for a Toa. Athletic build corded with lean muscle, but not overly bulky. His armor is streamlined and angular, but not smooth. Twin claw-like spikes extend from his shoulder armor, while his gauntlets have raised ridges running along their length. Two swept-back spikes come from his chest plate and extend over his shoulders, while his back armor is segmented to allow for amazing range of motion. The rest of his armor is stylized in this fashion, giving him a distinct look. His Kanohi is custom shaped, and has a built-in HUD with slight magnification abilities. Two swept-back ridges extend from the brow and back, while a third larger one sits between these two. A flat, long visor takes up most of the front of the Kanohi, while two more angled spikes extend from the mouth piece. His chest, forearms, hands, lower legs, and Kanohi are mainly a lime color that fades to a more yellow hue. The rest of his armor is gunmetal black coloration that seems to actually absorb light. The various attachments on his armor are a silver coloration. His eyes shine bright violet from under his Kanohi's visor, a color that is shared with his heartlight. Commonly wears a black trench coat with a high collar and white fedora to hide his identity.
Powers: Elemental power over Acid, allowing him to create, shape, and control various acidic substances.
Weapons: Electrified radius blades that splay out in a line from the back of his hand to his elbow from sheaths on his gauntlets. They can fold back inside for concealment. Each device has five separate blades, with the ones closer to his hands being longer and extend past his knuckles. A two-handed sword is strapped across his back. Its blade is constructed of protosteel, and the metal is stark white. This sword has a single edge, and is stylized to match his armor. Notches run along the first third of the blade. Four just-barely-not-quite-long knives are held in his back armor.
Abilities: Fast, light on his feet with amazing reflexes. You would think this guy had a (low-power) Calix at times. He is primarily a close-range melee fighter, and is an excellent martial artist. A high caliber swordsman as well, Elirak is entirely self-taught, and doesn't exactly have a set style of fighting. He has just above average elemental control, but is in no way an elementalist. His armor is resistant to rust and wear as a result of his elemental power. While he lacks in defense, his sheer raw power in physical abilities makes up for it somewhat. He is a master thief and savvy hacker as well.
Weaknesses: Ranged fighting for an extended period of time. While he can hold his own for a bit, his combat style doesn't focus on that type of fighting. Power can only compensate so much for his lack of defense, and a measured enough fighting style can counter his own seemingly random one.
Personality: Quick witted, sly, more than a bit eccentric; all of these are good ways to describe him. Always has a joke or witty response on hand. Has a thing for deadpanned humor and ironic situations. He makes friends (and enemies) rather easily. Almost completely carefree and an adrenaline junky in all possible ways, and can be hotheaded in certain situations. Although, his personality can shift dramatically at times to dark, depressed, and quite nearly insane. Nonetheless, normally a nice guy trying to do good. Or what he thinks of as good. Behind this personality he is surprisingly intelligent with a knack for finding things out about people. Even by just watching them.
History: From the shifty grin always present on his Kanohi, you wouldn't expect this guy's history to be spotless. And well, you're not wrong. In fact, you're dead right. He has enough counts of theft, resisting arrest, and unwarrented awesomeness to fill a few hard drives of data. And that's just what the police know about. Growing up in the streets of Olford didn't exactly give him a good start to life, but he tries to put that behind him. Its not something you get fond childhood memories from.
He learned quite quickly how to take care of himself, and became very good at reading people. When you're in a situation that he was in, knowing whether someone was going to punch you and take your wallet verses giving you a hug and taking your wallet is a very handy skill to have. One of the best things happened to him when he managed to make his way out of the dreary city and into Central City, but he had already acquired a dark outlook on life that tried to hide behind humor and I don't care attitude.
Reaching Central City made him discover one simple, but important, fact. People had money. Lots of it, too. So much that he didn't believe they could possibly spend it all within their lifetime, or the next. So, he did the most obvious thing. He stole it. And then he got good at stealing it, very good. Soon enough his face was known to ever cop in the city... or what the cops thought was his face. In no way greedy, the thief would give away what he didn't need, mostly to less successful people.
The rest is... History. Meaning the security force doesn't know about it.
