Ok, I have finished half of the Book of the Brotherhood entries now (50/100) - thanks to the help of @Toa_Heatwave, @pizzacheetah and especially @Willess12 - and as promised you get to see two more entries now. As determined in the poll those will be the entries of Icarax and Krika.
Before that I'd like to also show you the plan/layout of the Book of the Brotherhood with everything I'm planning to include in it, though:
- Makuta entries
- Kanohi list (the one I mentioned in the rules and which I still keep updated)
- List of assigned regions with description of them and who was assigned to them (in the entries only the original assigned regions are mentioned, here there will be things mentioned like Krika also being assigned to Zakaz after Spiriah messed up). I also still plan to give every region an actual name and not just call them "Northeastern Southern Continent" etc. I'm also still open for suggestions in that regard.
- Updated timeline I posted a while ago
- Updated Brotherhood hierarchy I posted a while ago
Well, and here are those entries:
Kanohi: Ayitaka, Great Mask of Scavenging
Assigned region: Karzahni
Ah, Icarax, this boisterous, overconfident fool. Dying at the hands of his “allies” really was a fitting end for one like him, but I’m getting ahead of myself.
I do have to admit that most of the time his shortsightedness quite amused me. Could someone of his status within the Brotherhood really be so naive as to think that bullying everyone into obedience was the key to rule the universe? Always he criticized my careful planning, demanding more action, calling me weak for using schemes to reach my goals instead of raw strength! But who controls power beyond anything ever imagined now, my dear Icarax, and whose atoms fill the air that all my new subjects breathe?
Icarax was a warrior. The finest the Brotherhood could muster in the eyes of some. Still, what did this make him? A mere soldier? He dreamed of leading the Brotherhood one day, but possessed none of the virtues of a leader. By rights I should have killed him after his pitiable attempt at rebellion against me. Indeed, I should have killed him right after the Convocation – being the last one to choose a side certainly suggested troubles with him in the future, but I had had my uses for him. Dispatching of Miserix’s supporters alongside Gorast, retrieving my Kraahkan from Mangaia, getting the Staff of Artakha for me – important tasks.
Eventually came the time when he again began losing what he called his “patience” with my Plan. Unfortunately I was too caught up in my final preparations to do anything at that point. At first Icarax merely refused to accompany Antroz to Karda Nui, but when he did show up, he endangered everything I had meticulously planned for so long. Only the quick intervention of Gorast kept Icarax from destroying the Codrex and dooming everything. It really is a shame that my Kraahkan was destroyed with him, but then I can always command Artakha to make me another.
Kanohi: Crast, Great Mask of Repulsion
Assigned region: Northern region of the Northern Continent
Betrayal is such an... unpleasant behavior. Even more so when it has been going on for thousands of years. I have to admit that I underestimated Krika’s... rebellious side quite severely, and almost it cost me everything.
I always considered Krika as an intelligent and cunning if somewhat pessimistic and unambitious fellow. He could have easily held a much higher rank within the Brotherhood had he cared to do so, but his attitude of permanently only seeing the downsides of our decisions and his lacking belief in the future always stood in his way.
As such it came as no surprise that Krika took his time before making his choice at the Convocation, but I admit that I should have considered the possibility that there actually was some Protosteel behind his facade of self-pity and pessimism a bit more before assigning him the task of taking care of Miserix. I chose him and Spiriah because I was sure that none of them had much to gain from letting our former leader live. Krika doubtlessly was intelligent enough to see that even together they couldn’t oppose the rest of us. Assuming that he hadn’t found a third way and believing his wild tale of Miserix dying in a fight really was an inexcusable mistake on my part, but in the end Miserix’s survival changed nothing.
Much more problematic was Krika’s betrayal in Karda Nui. Never had I expected that anyone would help Icarax in a plan of his. Just consider that this dolt nearly killed the whole Matoran Universe with his feeblemindedness!
Krika also was the only one learning of my little... surprise in time to warn the others. It really would have been wearisome if I had to spend my precious time on disposing of my potential rivals myself. Fortunately Gorast’s blind loyalty prevented Krika from spoiling everything and through her hand he died the traitor’s death he deserved, even if for the wrong reasons. When she used her Kanohi Felnas, Krika’s power of Density Control got out of hand and he faded from existence. What a pity that not all deaths can be that clean.
Be aware that this is told from Teridax's view at the time where Helryx is imprsoned by him in the Core Processor.
Any criticism/suggestions/opinions on everything here or for future things are greatly appreciated!
