A few days after it got beat by Nidhiki in Ga-Metru, the Rahkshi came back about to wreak havoc in the caves of Onu-Metru. Seihu was ready for it. The Rahkshi was lurking to one of the caves from a rocky shore near the Metru.
Suddenly an old Kanoka disk hit it.
When a Kanoka disk was thrown at the Rahkshi, a metal clank was heard so loud that the echoes in the Onu-Metru caves were small vibrations.
The Rahkshi turned back to see Seihu.
“Welcome back, Rahkshi. I’ve been waiting for you”, Seihu sternly greeted as he put on his gloves.
In an intense altercation, Seihu brawled with that Rahkshi again.
They went at it again in a spectacle of strikes, blocks, parries. and dodges. The Rahkshi elevated to stage 4 and came back with a few new moves and new powers.
Seihu was pushed back briefly.
“You learned new moves, but you’re the same old oversized Kraata.” Seihu winced while wiping the dirt off. “I learned new moves just for you.”
The Rahkshi was about to hit Seihu with its staff. But using the gloves, Seihu grabbed the head of the staff and kicked the weapon away and repeatedly kicked and punched the Rahkshi.
A few members of the Toa Mangai came and restrained Seihu while a member of the Toa Mangai fought that Rahkshi.
“Let me go!” Seihu remarked, “This is between me and that Rahkshi”.
“Matoran, calm down, this is for the best”
After receiving several strikes and beatings, the Rahkshi suit was so badly damaged that the Kraata that was in it had to flee.
A Toa with his hands crossed walked up and told Seihu, “You just got fortunate this time, Matoran."
"What's your name, Matoran?" asked the Toa.
"Seihu" Seihu replied.
"Be careful next time, Seihu. And stay out of trouble” warned the Toa.
"Yes sir" Seihu muttered.
Seihu and the others went home.
Seihu left with mixed feelings. while he wasn’t the one who dealt the final blow, for the first time Seihu bested that Rahkshi.
A few months after Seihu beat that Rahkshi, a war was going on in Metru Nui or better yet the Matoran universe.
This was the Toa/Dark Hunter war.
“Things seem way more hostile now than they used to be. There’s something about this air that breeds contention, contention that I never even felt when fighting the Rahkshi of Chain Lightning “, worried Seihu.
Seihu knew that the time to train the most was now.
He was out in a secluded area in Ga-Metru where he was practicing his forms. Seihu’s actions were quick and powerful. A barrage of kicks, punches, strikes, and blocks were part of his moves and put together in such a rhythm that it had almost a smooth but intimidating motion, but with power and grace.
“Hey look, some weird Matoran is trying to learn how to fight” observed a white, lime and red Toa-sized figure.
“Isn’t that hilarious? Let’s show him what fighting is all about!” said a dark blue, black and dark red Toa-sized figure with a mischievous grin.
“But it’s just a Matoran, why waste our lives on getting Matoran?” asked the white, lime and red figure.
“Matoran play a vital part in this universe. If we can get one, we can get them all”, said the darker figure.
The dark-colored member came up and introduced in a quasi-friendly voice, “Hey Matoran! I am Toa Burosa”. Burosa pointing to the white, lime, and red figure,” And my friend here is Toa Sterok”. “We have seen you in action and think you are really good. We are looking for a sparring partner. Are you up for some sparring with us ‘Toa’?”
“Huh, you don’t look like any Toa I’ve ever met or read about” Seihu examined.
Seihu was somewhat right. That is because they were anything but Toa, by code, morals or appearance. Burosa used to be a Toa but betrayed his team for power and money. Sterok, however, was not a Toa, but partner and lackey.
“That’s because we have been on other missions, and in some of those missions we were overpowered and captured by some of the Rahkshi and experimented on by Makuta himself” said Burosa.
“I’m sorry to hear that”, Seihu sympathized.
“It’s okay. Anyways are you up for it?” challenged Burosa.
“If that’s what you want then so be it,” said Seihu.
Burosa and Sterok looked at each other with a smile and lunged at Seihu. Seihu dodged and got fighting ready.
They sparred together and Seihu fairly held his own against them but the “sparring session” ended with Seihu beat to the ground.
They then offered gave Seihu an offer that he couldn’t refuse.
“You did okay, but I believe that you can better, why you can be as great as the other Toa one day” affirmed Burosa. “We run a Toa training program and we want you to be a part of it.”
“Yeah, Yeah, really good” Sterok nodded with an eager giggle.
Burosa smacked Sterok on the back of his head.
“If you join us, you can beat any foe that tries to destroy your Matoran friends, and the city of Metru Nui” Burosa propositioned. “But you have to survive some tests first”
“I’ll think about it. Give me a day” said Seihu.
“Okay a day, just don’t let us know too late” Burosa slickly urged. ”This will be the only chance of protection you have in the war, but if you don’t want to, that’s fine”
The next day, Seihu accepted the offer…
