The Legend of Sparta Nui Prologue In a time before classical times, there was a island called Sparta Nui where many millions of Matoran and Toa lived together in peace and harmony. But that all had changed when Piorisia another neighboring island nearby launched and invasion on two coastal city-states in Sparta Nui. This led to war between the two countries and since then it has still been going on for now about 100 years. Chapter 1 "Is there ever a day" said the Toa Daemos who was a welder of a battle axe and welder of ice powers, "when there isn't a group of Piorisians coming after us?" he asked as he sat down at the campfire that stood in front of him as the flames gave off smoke. "I am afraid not, my comrade." said Toa Hethens who was a welder of a metal spear and welder of magnetic powers. He was a warrior of the element of Magnetism serving for his kingdom of Sparta Nui. "Well as long you keep killing them Piorisians we will have no problems..." said Toa Rho, who welded the power of being able to control gravity. He also always carried around an copper sword with him as well. Then the hooded figure then stood up from his seat on the log the team was sitting on. He stood up and then put down his hood of his cloak and his red cape blew in the breeze of wind. He was a Toa of Stone, and he was most famous known Toa of all of Sparta Nui, Toa Arthymos. "Men, tomorrow we head to the city of Deltamos, there we will convince the city leaders to aid us in our war against the Piorisians. We shall get some rest now, because tomorrow will be a big day and long travel." That being said the Toas go to sleep and are already prepared for tomorrow's journey. Chapter 2 After the last's night sleep, the Toa wake up at sunrise in the crack of dawn. They then get their armor, helmets, weapons and shields along with other important belongings with them. The four Toa begin to set forth to the city-state of Deltamos by travelling on foot across the arid terrain they are in. They maybe many dangers awaiting them before they reach Deltamos for all we know. But hopefully our heroes will know what do in dangerous situations. As Arthymos walked in front of everyone else, his comrade Rho the Toa of Gravity walked beside him. "So how long until we reach Deltamos?" Rho asked Arthymos as he kept his eyes on what was in front of him. Just in case anything out of nowhere bad happens. "We will perhaps reach Deltamos in two hours if not perhaps three hours then, it all depends on if something or someone attacks us during the way there." he replied. As that being said, Rho then kept silent but still walked beside his leader Arthymos to be sure he will be right beside him when they arrive to Deltamos. While Hethens and Daemos were walking and sweating in the intense desert heat. Suddenly out of nowhere a wild Rahi appears by trying to attack Arthymos with it's venomous stinger tail. But Arthymos luckily had reacted in quick time to use his shield to protect himself from getting hit by the stinger tail. Then suddenly all four of them begin to fight the wild creature as they surround it. The Rahi gets confused and then tries to hit them all with it tail, but it fails doing so by confusion. The four then butcher the Rahi with their weapons to the point the creature is butchered alive. After that the four Toa then continue on forth to Deltamos as the dying Rahi lays on the arid ground and eventually dies from bleeding out of it's arteries. "We have finally arrived to Deltamos." exclaimed Hethens as he was already wiped out from all that long walking on foot. It took them like Arthymos had said three hours due to them all being attacked by a Rahi. A native Matoran to the city walks up to them and greets them. "Welcome to the City-State of Deltamos, what can I do for you?" the little Matoran asked them. Arthymos then stood out in front of the Matoran and said, "Would you kindly take us to your leader of your city?" he asked him. "But the leader of Deltamos doesn't like to get foreign visitors nor does he like to see them..." The Matoran then replied. "Well this is urgent, and we need to speak with him now!" Arthymos then said in a low tone of voice. "Alright fine, right this way..." the Matoran then said to them four as it led them to the city palace in the center of the city. End of Chapter 2 Chapter 3 The four Toa then arrive at the steps of the city palace of Deltamo's leader. They are then brought to the leader by two armed guards who held metal spears and wore metal silver helmets. They then glanced at the leader who had sat in a chair made out of concrete and he was a Turaga of Fire. The Turaga looked upon the four visitors and wondered what they are here for exactly. "What do you visitors need? It better be something important..." the old Turage of Fire said as he sat in his chair. "We four Toa have came all the way from the city-state of Ames and we have recently been attacked by the Piorisians two months ago which lead to our city being in a ruined economy." Arthymos said as he stood in front of the rest of the three. "And your point is? Go on I'm listening..." the Turaga said impatiently. "We would like your city-state of Deltamos to ally with our city-state of Ames so we can together form a united army of Toa and kick Piorisian butt." the Toa of Fire then said to the elder Turaga of Fire. The Turaga stood there for a moment and thought about it, and then made up his mind. "Alright we will aid you in war against Piorisia, we will send you at least 500 Toa warriors to help aid your city against the Piorisians." The Turaga then said in a low voice. "Thank you sir." Arthymos said to the Turaga of Fire, and then the Turaga said, "Guards lead the four travellers back to the entrance, and also SOMEONE GET ME SOME CHILI PEPPERS WITH SPICE IN THEM!" the Turaga ordered. The four Toa are then led out by the two armed guards and then the four of them travel around the city to search for some more comrades to join them in the quest to defeat the Piorisians.

TEEN TITANS: DELTA CHRONICLES by Delta Titan Sparta Prologue, 2 Years Prior The doors hissed closed behind the candidate as he entered. He was lean and muscular, with short, spiked hair and intense silver eyes. His expression was hard and determined, but had a kind quality to it. He stopped in the middle of the room, ten eyes locked onto him. The tension in the room was tremendous. Nightwing spoke first. "You call yourself Sparta," he said slowly. The young man nodded. "You never gave us your real name." Sparta shook his head sadly. "That name was a part of me," he replied, "that died when I became that monster's apprentice." Cyborg cocked an eyebrow. "Whose apprentice?" "You know who," Sparta replied. His eyes met each Titan's. "He hurt all of you." His eyes fell on Beast Man, his expression suddenly repentant. "Some more than others." "So," Raven murmured. "He's back." "After Trigon's defeat," the youth began, "he decided that, to train an apprentice, he had to start younger, and to have the strongest, fiercest fighter possible. So he 'adopted' thirty children. Our first test: He put all of us in arena and said, 'Pick up your weapons and fight'." "You mean..." Starfire began. "Twenty-nine kids died in one hour," confirmed Sparta. "Including my younger brother. I did everything to protect him, but that... that murderer planned in advance; he coated the weapons with some kind of venom. One scratch from one, and you were as good as dead. If the toxin didn't finish you off, an opponent would. "I only killed one of them, and it was totally by accident," he continued, his expression distant, a tear forming in his eye. "And then, there were the augmentations, to make me faster, stronger, tougher, and more agile. It hurt more than anything I'd ever experienced." He paused. "Except for losing Kai." "Did he try to control you?" inquired Beast Man. Sparta nodded. "With a suit that was supposed to bind with my nervous system," the teenager answered. "But there was a side effect from the augmentations: The suit was designed to interface with a normal human nervous system." "And the chemicals rewrote yours," Cyborg muttered, nodding. "Rendering the suit useless," finished Nightwing. Sparta nodded. "That was the one thing he didn't count on," he said. "When I found out that the suit wouldn't work, I fought back, and nearly eliminated him." The Titans abruptly sat straighter in their seats. "You... attempted to destroy him?" asked Starfire. "But, for what reason?" "He took everything away from me!" Sparta hissed angrily. "My life, my childhood, and the only family I had!" His eyes seemed to glow as his voice rose. "You've seen both first- and secondhand what that monster can do! Don't you remember what he did to Terra?" In a blur of black and green, Beast Man leaped across the room, transformed into a Tyrannosaurus, and pinned Sparta with a clawed foot. He bared eight-inch long fangs at the candidate. "Beast Man!" Raven cautioned, her eyes glowing white. With a growl, Beast Man returned to human form. "Never," he warned icily, "speak of her again." He stalked back to his seat.Sparta stood up, appearing calm. "See?" he pointed out. "It's been ten years, and he still haunts you five." His eyes narrowed. "I want to join the Titans to help people. I think that'd be spitting in the old man's eye.""What will you do," Nightwing asked slowly, "if you encounter him again?"Sparta's fists clenched until his fingernails drew blood."After I find Slade, I'm going to kill him, and end his reign of terror for all and eternity."
