He was called Vachax. At least, that’s what they said he was called. Personally, he preferred Vahi or some variation on Vahi, to fit with the mask he wore. After all, a being of pure temporal energy needed to have a name that was easy to remember, a name to be feared by, a name that could shake the foundations of a world. “Vachax”, he mused, just didn’t flow, it was weak, a name for puny Toa. And speaking of Toa… Vachax turned his head. Yes, he must continue to question this one. Although its lingering fear was tasty, he needed real nourishment. Vachax quivered with excitement, imagining the sweet taste of agony and anguish mixed with terror. It’s pain would be enough to sustain him for quite a while-but wait. Vachax shook his head to clear it of aimless thoughts. He must not forget the task at hand. He had to find out why the Toa knew where he currently resided, why it sought the disk...but surely a little…No! He must question the Toa, then he could savor its tormented soul. He walked over to the restrained Toa, and tilted its head up. Its vibrant blue eyes stared deep into his bright green ones, unyielding. Smirking at the display of resistance, Vachax began to speak in a raspy voice. “So you fancy yourself a martyr, hmm…? Well, I have news for you, little one. All being a martyr ever did for someone was make them dead. It is the actions of the living and how you control them that count…Maybe this will help you understand…but I doubt it.” With that, Vachax ripped off the Toa’s mask and went to work. The screams of the fallen echoed as dusk shrouded the area, encased the living and brought forth the dead. Vachax smiled as he replaced the Toa’s mask. Locking the cell behind him, the green-eyed being walked off into the twilight, scattering rusted armor behind him. As Vachax passed the horizon, a smoldering head opened its blue eyes and stared off into the distance, stared at the mangled bodies that surrounded it, and finally closed its eyes. Darkness enshrouded it as it spoke one word… “T...I…M...E”
