Welcome to BioChronicler's Chroniclered Character Discussions (quite a mouthful, isn't it? You can just call it BCCD). Today, I have chosen to discuss who this fellow named "The Shadowed One" is.
Ah, the Shadowed One. The leader of the Dark Hunters and one of the only characters to not have his name revealed (currently, only two people know his name: Ancient, and Greg Farshtey). So, who is this guy, and why is he so mysterious?
Well, for one thing, his alias sure sound intimidating. "The Shadowed One," as he prefers to be called, would give any Matoran a shiver up their bio-mechanical spines. Just look at this guy... He's looks pretty menacing.
So, what exactly is his job? Well... He's the leader of the Dark Hunters. Most of his early life is foggy and unclear, so we don't know much about his origins except for the fact he created the band of mercenaries known as the Dark Hunters.
He played a crucial role throughout most of BIONICLE history. He was one of the reasons the Toa Mangai was formed (due to Turaga Dume not wanting a base for the Dark Hunters in Metru Nui). He was the one who paired Nidhiki along with Krekka (in which later he made a deal with Roodaka to mutate Nidhiki, so he could not betray them and go back to being a Toa). He also played a crucial role in the fan-faved book, Time Trap, in which he almost had the Kanohi Vahi in his possession. I won't explain any farther, because he has a huge history in place.
Anyways, The Shadowed One's role in the BIONICLE story is a major one, which is why I became so interested in the character. Unfortunatly, I never got Roodaka, so I could not build him. However, he still interested me, so I did my research, and I grew to like the character, even if I did not get to build him.
Which brings me to wanting to discuss this character. Since he is one of my favorites, I wanted to discuss this guy with you, the members of TTV Message Boards. What do you think about the Shadowed One? Is he your favorite character, or your least favorite? Discuss it here.
