Species: Grazonurus-A species roughly Matoran-height and humanoid covered in plated verdant armor reminiscient of a millipede's, but on a microscopic scale. Their armor is aerodynamic due to the minisculity of its ridges, though, and exude air currents from between its ridges that form a second layer of armor of cutting wind around their wearer about a sixth of a meter thick even as the air is constantly sucked back into the wearer at different ridges to be channeled elsewhere or to breathe. Grazonurus are unable to use Kanohi, having a helm-plate covering their face with a black-tinted visor over the eyes and ears. Finally, Grazonurus have claws on their hands and feet shaped as to not disturb the currents around them.
Appearance: Hualn is a Matoran-like figure covered in nearly seamless plates composed of a hardened substance similar to keratin, though only as strong as solid protodermis, that is pine green. Two amber eyes glare out from beneath his black-tinted visor fitting onto his helm. Upon his back, Hualn has strapped a huge zweihander, at nearly twice his height in length and as thick as half his torso, width-wise. His hands and feet are clawed, the latter near-perpetually hovering a sixth of a meter off of the ground, only dropping sometimes in combat. He looks to be of medium build, and continuously his image is distorted by the currents moving around him. As well, Hualn is accompanied by a great whooshing and sucking sound at once as he moves about, as though a strong breeze were constantly moving about his area.
Powers: Hualn's air currents are his sole power, although they more resemble a trait for his own inability to turn them off. Due to his species' anatomy, they are governed largely without his control; they move without him being able to stop them, and they constantly 'inhale' and 'exhale' their cutting winds all over his body, resembling highly developed lungs in that function. However, he CAN control the concentration of their inhalation and expiring to certain areas of his body, allowing parts like his claws to become covered in as much as one-third of a meter of air blade armor. Due to this ability to control where he exhales and inhales, he gains control of the air pressure immediately around his body, and can even use sudden inhalation to act as though he had suction cups. He can even journey underwater inside an air bubble, though not indefinitely, due to a need to breathe and pressure. This useful ability gives Hualn a formidable 'first layer of defense' that can be easily morphed into offensive and defensive extensions of his claws and feet to land attacks that would otherwise miss. Finally, the air armor serves a last purpose: It supports and strengthens his body, allowing him to hover and move around more freely, as well as wield his huge blade.
Despite this power's many advantages, though, it has several weaknesses. Hualn often underestimate the power of foes' attacks because of his two layers of armor, which, although allowing him to absorb physical attacks rather well due to the wind slowing down and softening blows, does not work as well against powered assaults. While even then, his blades can deal with wind and even many more solid or wind-based elements, like earth or fire, by cutting them away in their rotation, a skilled fighter can recognize that he often extends much of his armor into his extending his attacks, causing him to lack a first layer of defense valuable surface area on his body. Just as well, he often leaves the soles of his feet or hands particularly vulnerable, as they are the first place he often causes to stop exhaling when extending his appendages in a fight. Finally, no matter how much Hualn extends his armor to cover, it disperses after radiating a third of a meter from his body. This means that he can be easily fooled to cover one area when something is coming towards him at high speed, only to have the object or enemy change course right before the shield and slip around it
Abilities: Hualn has been highly trained in swordsmanship and unarmed combat. He is about as strong as the average toa and fast as one, too; however, his wind armor enhances both those traits to give him above-average speed and strength, though not anything half rivaling the power of a Kakama or Pakari. Due to these traits, his fighting style is bold and dynamic, slipping from swordsmanship to claw swipes to kicks, all bolstered or enhanced with his armor. Hualn often acts almost without care in fights, feeling that his two layers of armor and skill with a sword is enough for most foes, only getting serious if they actually get past his first layer of defense and sword.
Equipment: Hualn wields a zweihander that is the same color as his armor and made of the same material. It has been crafted specially so that air simply glides across it with ease.
Personality: Hualn is, first off, spontaneous. He becomes bored of routine easily, and is constantly looking for new territory to explore, new opponents to test his skill against. He is highly curious, but often doesn't reveal it, feigning mild impartiality and true arrogance. This mask is only taken off when exploring new opponents' capabilities in battle, if they have managed to bypass his first layer of armor, or when exploring a new area or thing to do. Hualn's mask is partially revealing, though: He is arrogant and overconfident to a degree due to being pampered (see bio). Despite this, he has a hidden sympathetic side, being able to see the good side of many people if he'd only look.
Bio: Hualn was born into a prestigious family of landowners, high-bred aristocrats of his species. Growing up, he became bored with his tedious, orderly life and decided to become a soldier to travel all over the world and fight. He ran away before he finished education and was accepted by an institution of mercenaries, wherein he was taught how to fight and thereafter employed. After hearing of the far-off plight of the Hagah Prison, he grew interested and presented himself to the Piraka. Hualn was promptly hired by Hakann and transported to Norik Island and the Piraka's base. He occasionally gets a nagging feeling that there must be more to life than killing now, after many years of fighting, but dissmisses it easily.
Name: Kakashi; alias "The Scarecrow"
Species: Toa of Plant Life
Appearance: Kakashi wears light green armor with darker accents and is an Inika-build toa. He wears a dark green hat that looks to be made out of a kind of straw on his head and has golden eyes. Kakashi also wears a mask over his Kanohi, also made out of dark green straw and shaped like a crude face. This mask covers his entire face, save his eyes and the rough area of his mouth. Finally, he has pieces of the same pine-colored straw sticking rakishly out of joints in his armor.
Powers: As a Toa of The Green, Kakashi has toa-level control of Plant Life, meaning he can absorb plants, cause them to grow or shrivel, change their form, create new plants, and manipulate existing ones at a toa's level.
Abilities: Kakashi is able to think quickly and rationally to come to decisions. He also is skilled in deceit and deception, as well as dodging, blocking, and turning away attacks. Finally, Kakashi is able to wield senbon and whips with great proficiency.
Equipment: "The Scarecrow", as he calls himself, does not carry much equipment; however, he often generates scarecrows of straw, senbon thorns, and vine whips as weapons and tools during battle using his powers.
Personality: Kakashi is a playful trickster, liable not to take things seriously, but almost always able to weasel, worm, and, quite rarely, badger his way out of the consequences of doing so. He often gets in trouble for this, but as stated previously, is usually able to figure a way out. He is quite skilled at fooling people, though he often doesn't at first, inadvertedly paving the way for his deception later on. This reflects in his fighting style-when Kakashi is attacked, he usually teleports away, leaving behind in the split second before he goes a scarecrow made of his own straw, usually with added spikes to annoy and catch enemies. Although this prankster nature would make one think that he has few friends, Kakashi is an extrovert at heart and likes people inherently. Despite his flawed ways, he earnestly attempts when not pranking to help others.
Bio: Kakashi grew up in the Southern Continent. There he became widely known for his joking nature and quick wit, earning him settlement-wide respect for his ability to solve problems in a pinch and practical jokes. One day, however, he found a toa stone. Having always aspired to be renowned for something more than a quick-minded joker and wanting to be a superhero, like in one of his most prevalent childhood dreams, he used it and donned a costume to resemble a scarecrow. Thereafter, word was spread throughout the region of a Toa of The Green calling themself "The Scarecrow" who protected a settlement with not power, but traps and trickery, from Rahi, pirates, and other dangers. During this period, The Scarecrow grew to become experienced in martial trickery, becoming known for humorously substituting himself for a scarecrow dummy right before he teleported. He also improvised and learned many ways to keep himself from being hit by attacks, and became a master of whips and senbon, as they were merely incapacitating and annoying weapons. Unfortunately, during around the thirtieth year of his protection, a majof crime boss realized that the the hero who had started out to work against small-time thieves and angered rahi had now grown into one capable of shutting down large-scale operations with subterfuge and sabotage. Therefore, he had The Scarecrow captured by the Toa Team assigned to their region of the continent and sent to prison, and despite all his attempts to bargain, sneak, and force his way out, nothing has worked. Until now...
Name: Captain Aki Rua Doomslayer The First (Whether this is his real name or not is unknown; see bio)
Species: Toa of Oil
Kanohi: The good Captain wears a Great Mask of Laser Vision upon his face, shaped like a Great Calix. Its power is pretty much what the title of the mask says: It allows the wearer to shoot lasers from their eyes. Unlike the Avohkii, it does not provide further light manipulation than that, and a wearer of the Mask of Laser Vision cannot make the lasers any wider than their eyes without help or a lense. However, the lasers can be used many more times than regular light powers and can be shot from the pupil of an eye, meaning a wearer only has to turn their eyes, not their head, to fry things with their ocular weapon.
Appearance: Captain Aki Rua Doomslayer The First is of moderate build for a Toa, his only real difference from the average one in rough size and shape being his bulkier and more muscled upper body. He wears over his armor a belt slung across his left shoulder and returning to his back at his right hip, where he has strapped on a canvas backpack with a surujin. On his front, however, Rua has only strapped a recurved and compound machine crossbow and six magazines of quarrels. The Captain also wears a faded bright black beret with a cap badge of a sapphire shaped like a five-pointed star shoved to his left. His mask appears to be a glossy pitch-black Calix with two sapphire eyes staring out from it. Aki's armor is also colored a glossy pitch-black, and is always shining clean due to usage of his oil powers to scour his body.
Powers: Doomslayer can control/absorb/manipulate any and all oil at a Toa level. He most often focuses this power through his mouth, spitting out gallons or globs of oil.
Abilities: As the Captain is a Toa of Oil, the overall efficiency of his mechanical parts are increased. Therefore, he doesn't expend as much energy lifting something, for example, or running, than a normal Toa would. He also has mastered his three weapons and has a degree of training in covert operations and stealth.
Equipment: Rua wields three weapons, each well-crafted. The first are a dozen EXTREMELY unripe madu cabolo, coated in oil, partly so that they don't explode from a mild shock unless the layer is peeled off and partly because the oil makes for a good thing to explode and kept within his backpack. They are mainly used as grenades, but can also be left in places, sticking to things with the oil, and then remote-detonated with a quarrel, a high-pressure oil stream, or something else. The second weapon of the Captain is a repeating crossbow. It is recurved and compounded for more power, and shoots one of the ten-quarrel magazines Aki wears in fifteen seconds. Although it is not as powerful as a regular crossbow, its fire is still powerful enough to pierce armor. Each quarrel is tipped with protosteel for extra piercing power, as well. Finally, Aki's last, and signature, weapon, is a surujin with a protosteel spike, a protosteel weight, and a thick rope in place of a chain. It is made specially, with the weight actually only being covered in a thin layer of protosteel, with a layer of wood of wood beneath that protecting a good deal of oil. As well, there is a hole present in the weight where the rope has been attached to the center of the ball. Therefore, if Aki uses a little oil power, he can send the oil already there out onto the rope.
Personality: The Captain acts with complete disregard for rules of any kind, and also acts as though he is incredibly powerful and superhumanly good at fighting, as well as everything else. Thus, one would probably deduce that he suffers from a superiority complex. However, this mask-if it is a mask-appears to conceal a cunning mind to those who have caught a glimpse of his real self. Although he often appears as a bumbling, arrogant fool when first met, his tongue and actions cleverly hide his real plans, and often he will make mistakes on purpose. Because of his egnimatic persona, not one person in the Matoran Universe knows what his true plan is or just what his goals are.
Bio: The Captain Aki Rua The First appeared before a mercenary's syndicate calling himself that full name not very long before the prisonbreak on Hagah, citing how he taught his skills to dozens of famous mercenary commanders-each one long dead. He went on to cite his past experiences as a pirate, poet, soldier, pilot, and bula wine maker, as well as many other occupations. No one is still sure how he got the job at the syndicate, but it is rumored that it was attained because he constricted the CEO with the oil in said being's armor, deadpanning: "This is just one reason not to turn me down. Happy?" (Of course, said rumor may have been started by the Captain himself, but no one exactly knows). Regardless, he was accepted, though as a low-level soldier ('Captain' is, apparently, the title he held in his first war days). Now he has arrived at Hagah, alone and, according to him, 'totally ready to kick butt'.
