O-ho, I see you made it here, did you? Very well. This is where you'll reserve spots for your friends if they meet any accidents...as well as where we'll log down most information of them. How useful, eh?
Here are a few of our first joiners:
Name: The Blinded Visionary
Species and Gender: Toa, Male.
Appearance: Tall, and appearing formerly muscular, though over time his muscles have atrophied somewhat. He has dark, silvery coloured armour, though there are spots of darker and brighter red in places, either a former colouration, or something else. He always wears something similar to a Toga Praetexta, and he always keeps a white cloth tied about his eyes. His Kanohi is in the shape of a Hau.
Weapons and Possessions: The Visionary holds no weapons, not anymore. In the way of possessions, he has a few. His mask, his armour, his robe, his cloth, and, finally, a small sword kept in a glass case within his rooms, with a slightly stylized flame shape.
Mask: The Visionary wears a Hau-shaped Kanohi Rode, the mask of Truth.
Powers: The Blinded Visionary is a Toa of Fire, and formerly a very strong, proficient one at that. He still holds his elemental power, however, after his looking in the well, it has gone down to about half the power a normal Toa might have-also known as one and one-half as much power as a Turaga. However, in exchange for this, he has gained the power of foresight...namely, visions. And he is excellent at interpreting them, and making sure that that which must happen will happen.
Faction: Leader of the Children of The Well.
Biography: The Blinded Visionary was, formerly, a brash, headstrong Toa of Fire, the leader of his small team of friends. He was one of the first Toa created, as well, though he had a relatively short career, compared to some others from that Universe. Eventually, though, he had been awakened. Just in time to see everything go completely downhill in his universe. He was one of the first to make the migration to Spherus Magna, and one of the first, afterwards, to make the migration underground. He was, again, the first to find the Well-yes, his life has been full of firsts, it's true. Once he found the Well, he sat in meditation for a few weeks, before, finally, more came and discovered him. They clothed and fed him for he had grown weak, and, finally, once he was back to full strength, he issued his proclamation of the Well.
Species and Gender: Ul'kar, Indeterminate. Male personality.
Appearance: A viscous, black pool of a being, with swirls of a dark red slowly coming to the surface and sinking again. Though, at times, Kar will solidify himself, or parts of himself, coming up to walk among those who worship him.
Weapons and Possessions: He has no need of either, so he has none. Unless, of course, you count his worshippers.
Powers: Being an Ul'kar, Kar has various powers, not all known. The only well known ones are these: He can speak to others in their mind, seemingly attempting to lull them to sleep, or to join him. And, the second, he can solidify his body, or parts of it, to give himself more form. And with that solidification comes the ability to make weapons from his substance.
Faction: Leader of the Ul'kar cult. Truly, though, simply the Ul'kar.
Biography: Why, you think he will wish to tell you? We only know this much: Kar says that he is the consciousness of the Great Being who created the Ul'kar, and that he is in control of the entire mass. At times. Soon after the Great Host, as he calls those who were not of the Ul'kar, came underground, he came as well. It was he who orchestrated the destruction of Kra-Karda, and it was he who drew the first cultists to worship him. That is all we know.
Species and Gender: Turaga, Male.
Appearance: A small, hunched Turaga, his great age evident in the look of his eyes. He wears a small, tattered robe, similar to most Turaga, though it has been half ruined over the time of his life. His eyes are a deep blue. His body is varying shades of green, the predominant being a rich, dark forest green.
Weapons and Possessions: His weapon is his staff, which can split apart to reveal a pair of highly sharpened long knives. His possessions include his robe and his mask, mainly, and a small, brightly glowing crystal hung from a chain about his neck.
Mask: Noble Kanohi Hau.
Powers: Cotan is a Turaga of Air, and, as such, he has minimal control over the power of air...though he has more than most other Turaga. As well, he seems to gain increased vitality from the crystal about his neck.
Faction: Leader of the Council of Light.
Biography: Cotan is an old, experienced Turaga. Formerly a wealthy Matoran servant in the Southern Islands, eventually, his master, the one who had trained him, passed away, leaving Cotan with a Toa Stone, and his former position as an ambassador and council member of the ancient organization that was the Toa Council. Cotan soon became a Toa, traveling about the Southern Islands, though staying close to one main Island, known as Yheyn, for most of that time. Eventually, he had pressing matters to attend to in the North, and so he left the Southern Islands for good. The next years were rather uneventful for him, doing nothing more than most Toa would. Eventually, after a great period of time passed, he made the migration to Spherus Magna with most Toa, and, later, to the Tunnels. He suffered as he left to the tunnels, though, from a plague that had been conceived to help end the Toa. He found the cure, though his healing also led him to become the Turaga that he is now. Once the first cities were founded, he decided to stay in Av-Metru, spearheading the organization of the Council of Light.
Species and Gender: Skrall, Male.
Appearance: Yolof, having been of the elite Skrall, is a large being-and it's not just his armour, and definitely not his paunch. He has a very dark, red coloured skin, nearly black. Especially in the wrong light. He is also heavily muscled, and his eyes burn with a furiosity greater than what most would expect.
Weapons and Possessions: Yolof owns two weapons: His original sword that he was given when first he joined the ranks of the Warrior Skrall, and his razor sharp shield. He has taken meticulous care to keep the tribal designs on both pure, due to the fact that he is, now, the last of his specific tribe of Skrall, and wishes to continue their memory. His possessions consist of his large home in Outpost Central, functioning as his home, an inn, and the main city hall, if you will.
Mask: N/A. Unless you count his helmet.
Powers and Skills: Yolof, like all Skakdi, holds no inherent power, besides his great natural strength, on par with that of a normal Toa of Stone. He is a greatly skilled swordsman, though, and he has one other, very important skill: Leadership. Very necessary in the tunnels.
Faction: Neutral, lead of Outpost Central.
Biography: Yolof, being a Skrall, was raised as a warrior, though he did not truly join the warrior's ranks until his twentieth birthday, part of a tradition within his Tribe. Sooner than he expected, though, he was forced down under the ground by the Ul'kar, and he lost his entire tribe in the process. He suffered a serious bout of depression for the first year or so he was in the tunnels, before, finally, he left Av-Metru, sickened with the Council, though holding no ill feelings towards the Children. The Cult of the Ul'kar, though, he hated with a passion. He soon founded Outpost Central, what was basically the last city under the ground, and has attempted sending others out to learn more of the land they were stuck in-not all returned. Others came back with tidings of other, smaller outposts formed, though there wasn't much that could be sent to them in the way of reinforcements. Now, the steady influx of information is dwindling, and Yolof fears for those he sent out.
