HISTORY: Shortly after the convocation between Teridax and Miserix, Aegis was assigned to the Northern Continent with Krika, Gorast, and a few other Makuta. One of the more passive Makuta to inhabit the Matoran Universe, Aegis had always possessed a knack for experimenting with various poisons and toxins. Her tenacity and intelligence with this subject had earned her quite the reputation amongst the inhabitants of her portion of the landmass, especially a certain Matoran who went by the name of Visca. Aegis’s workings perked his curiosity, prompting her to take him on as a sort of “research assistant”, letting him work in and around the small lab that the rest of the Matoran set up for her. Over the many years she served under Teridax, Aegis gradually acquired the skills and supplies necessary to create a small fortune of various chemicals, which now resides within her lab. Her relationship with the Matoran was a steady one, providing insight and guidance to them on a regular basis. She was certainly one of the more outgoing and friendly Makuta out of the 100 individuals, as she was not afraid to forge bonds and mingle with the villagers she was sent to watch over. Aegis’s close relationship lead to a trust between herself and the Matoran, which in turn resulted in her being appointed as the village’s ambassador of sorts.
Although there is no record as to how exactly she died, it is known that Visca was there to witness it; he wishes not to speak about the experience.
ABILITIES: Aegis possesses many abilities, but her most notable ones are her vast knowledge of toxins and venoms, and her ability to conjure up shield-like barriers, which is the explanation of her name. The latter skill is a byproduct of many experiments that she performed on herself with many different poisons, resulting in slightly enhanced psychic abilities. If Aegis concentrates hard enough, she is able to manifest these mental projections in the physical world as protective shields, albeit for a brief period of time.
KANOHI: Aegis wears a Kanohi Iva, an intricately-designed mask that gives the wearer an extremely acute sense of their surroundings, almost like a third eye. This comes in particularly useful when she is working within the lab, since it has warned her more times than she’d like to admit of an impending chemical explosion. However, Visca has noted several occasions where she has donned on a Kanohi Faxon, to combat accidents which left her poisoned or envenomated (courtesy of her own doing, he might add).
QUOTE: “I have just mixed in the Lehrak venom with the protodermis mixture and a strange concoction that one of the other villagers gifted me to use in my experiments. They said that it was Rahi venom from a species that I had not heard of before; I should look into what specific species it was after I put out this fire. Because apparently the venom is highly flammable. I really should stop talking now.”
