Icarax is definitely one of my favorite characters, always appreciated his dynamic with Teridax, and how their different mindsets, personal methods and philosophies differ and clash, which does lead to some pretty metal quotes.
"I believe in certainties. The strength of my limbs, the power of my mask, the sharp edges of my blades — that is what I build my plans around. Trickery, deception, complex strategies, they are for the weak! If you want power, and another has it, you get it not by outwitting him — you get it by stepping over his corpse."
— Makuta Icarax to Vican, Shadows in the Sky
"At first we thought he was the Makuta we had fought before, for he wore the Mask of Shadows. But he was, if anything, a more skilled and ferocious warrior, felling my teammates with swift, sure blows."
— Gali, Toa Nuva Blog
"Since you ask so nicely, brother, what can I say? I will return with the mask ... shall I bring it with or without the head that wears it?"
— Icarax to Antroz, Shadows in the Sky
"Our Toa? Our Matoran? Why not give up our dreams of conquest and settle into quiet lives as very tall Turaga?"
— Icarax, Shadows in the Sky
"Your talents are still of some use to me, and so I will not kill you ... today. But one day - perhaps in a year, or 1000 years, or 100,000 years - I may grow tired of you, Icarax. You may cease to be amusing, with your posturing and your boasting and your lust for battle. And on that day, your armor will be a meal for metal-eating scavengers, and your essence a wisp on the wind."
— Teridax to Icarax, The Mutran Chronicles
