War was everywhere on Spherus Magna.
From the slums of New Atero to the hermitages of the Iconox, its stench of iron and rot pervaded the scene. Smoke hung over the countryside of the planet, particularly Bota Magna. The forest had easily caught fire and had been burning for some time now. Corpses lay everywhere, hung on the roadsides or scattered through the suburbs, a grim reminder of the sword that had fallen upon the planet and ruthlessly cleaved through it, leaving violence and devastation in its path.
And from a throne hidden in the shadows of Roxtus, the former city of the Skrall, a cloaked being sat. It red eyes gleamed with satisfaction as he looked out upon Spherus Magna and saw Death itself, its bony smile grinning back at it. The war was unstoppable, an irresistible force of monstrous proportions that was bearing down on the planet with the force of a tsunami.
But there was one variable that, uncontrolled, could end this all. The cloaked being looked down upon the being that could destroy his revenge. The mark was a matoran in matte black and gray armor, a small radio antenna sticking out from his chin, a scope upon his Miru. Stormy blue eyes gazed out from the scope and the slit. Although the cloaked one had never met the matoran personally, he knew his name, his weight, his weaponry, his occupation, and his friends, along with everything else there was to know about the mark. Without emotion, the being turned and telepathically called to a servant. Within seconds, the Ta-Toa aide was there, kneeling by its master's side. "Your majesty?"
The hooded being did not even look at the aide. "Kill the being known as Arytai in any manner before a week is up. You have access to the resources of my forces and everything they control. You are dissmissed."
The aide saluted and left, leaving the commander alone with his thoughts. A dark smile emerged from the being's lips. Soon, revenge would be its, and the world would cower before its name...
