Ok so as stated in the title this is a WIP story, to put it simply I have barely edited this, story wise, besides spelling mistakes that is, it probably has bad punctuation and improper grammar/word usage and such, I really just scrawled this out as the ideas came to me.
I haven't been able to find a proper beat reader or anyone who knows about bionicles and would understand what they're reading. So if you do comment on this please make them useful, I'd prefer not to get comments about how terrible of a writer I am and how I should go kill myself and Yada Yada Yada, whatever those types tend to say,can you just tell me want you don't like and how you feel I should fix it? If so, thanks! If not then, whatever do as you wish.
On bara magna, at the site of Mata nui's and Makuta's final battle and resting place, there was a light hovering in the air that appeared to be surrounding a golden mask, those close enough would even be able to hear it speak, around the glowing mask was a gathering of large, multicoloured biomechanical beings, some more bio then mechanical and vice-versa, listening to it, these beings are known as bionicle. As the mask finished it slowly descended as its glow faded, lowering itself itself into the hands of a bright orange and red bionicle, known as Tahu, he was one of the taller beings of the group, while the number of others around his size or larger was still a good amount they were far outweighed by the amount of smaller beings, most of which were around half his height, he along, with the other taller beings were heroes of the bionicles, otherwise known as Toa's or glatorians as the more organic, native bionicles to this planet were called. As Tahu lowered the mask, known as the kanohi ignika, the mask of life, or in other words mata-nui's final resting place, the other beings started to leave, some started to talk to others and some of them went with groups of smaller versions of themselves, called matoran or… for the planet native ones, helping to organize them into groups. As they did this Tahu had had yet to move, looking at the mask sadly. One of the glatorian, named Gresh walked up to Tahu, asking him a question many others wondered. "So it's all over huh?" "Yes, for now at least." Tahu replied as he looked up."Teridax has been stopped but at what cost? Mata Nui is dead and despite this world being fixed our homes are gone." As he finished his melancholy speech both him and Gresh felt a pair of large, clawed hands clap them on the shoulders and heard a, while not exactly evil voice but one that would remind you of shadows none the less, typically not a sound one would associate with anything but evil, say "Don't be such a downer Tahu. We still have each other and we can build new homes." As Tahu and Gresh turned around to look at the being that had said this, they saw a massive, pitch black titan carrying a scythe on his back and wearing a fearsome mask that looked like a black version of Takanuva's mask of light. If they had been any other toa who didn't know him, (And even some who did) they would have immediately thought he was a Makuta and run for their lives because of the aura of darkness he gave off. But luckily Tahu and Gresh both knew him by a different name, which was Tekan, one of the tallest beings of their group, the number of ones his height a very low number, and for good reason, his type being known as Titan type bionicles, ones with increased strength and abilities compared to others, and what he actually was, a toa of shadows who was somehow good despite nearly all other shadow beings be either Makuta or close enough to be considered one. "Ah, Tekan" replied Tahu as he saw who he was speaking to. "I guess you are right, everybody's safe and we can always build new and better homes." "Plus" Replied Tekan "I bet that it will take more than that to kill a great being such as Mata Nui, he is probably just regaining his strength, and I am still alive am I not?" Tahu then chuckled a bit and said "That you are Tekan but you are also no longer a great being nor have you been for thousands or probably more years." "But I was once and I'm still here despite not being one! Think of what that means for Mata Nui!" Tahu then replied in a more cheerful tone "Yes you are correct. I am glad that you could cheer me up a bit." "Welcome! You know I hate seeing any of you guys depressed, especially right now! I mean we just beat Makuta! Think about that!" Tahu then smiled, patted Tekan on the shoulder and said "You're right. Why should I be depressed? We are all here, there's no more villains right now and we met all of these new bionicles too. As he had been speaking Tekan had been staring at one of his hands. "To think I was once a being like Mata-nui until I was reduced to this, and to think of what it took for me to remember and what caused it." He thought to himself, small glimmers of gold forming in the cracks of his armoured hand, before hissing quietly in pain as they vanished quickly, looking up as he clenched his hand in pain, allowing him to notice something moving in one of the ravines in the cliff wall near Makuta's fallen form behind Tahu. As he saw the movement he noticed that Tahu had finished speaking and was waiting for a reply. "Hmm? Oh yeah! You're right! Now then you and Gresh should go and start helping the other toa organize the matoran. I have to go and… check on something. Be right back. Bye!" He then started to walk off towards the ravine. Tahu and Gresh both looked at each other puzzled but then shrugged it off and called out "Make sure to come over and help when you're done!" before they turned around and walked back towards the group of bionicles. As Tekan arrived in front of the cliff wall and ravine he thought to himself "I wonder what it was that I saw. Probably just a Rahi or some other creature. Oh well there's no point in not being a bit cautious." He then called out "Hey is there anybody in there?" As Tekan waited he thought "Probably not going to get an answer, or if I do it's probably going to be a rahi charging at me." When he did get his reply it was something that he never expected, a voice that he thought he would never hear again but when he did it chilled him to his core "Hello Tekan. I'm so glad you dropped by." It wasn't the voice that scared Tekan but the fear, hatred and pure evil it radiated. It was a voice all of the toa knew well, him the most because the owner of that voice had kept him as a slave for years, it was the voice of Makuta. "N-no that's i-impossible! Y-you're dead!" Tekan stammered in surprise as he swung his arm cannon in front of him and cast furtive glances around. As he finished speaking it almost appeared that the darkness around him deepened, became almost oppressive and seemed to become so black it was almost impossible to see in. He then heard the voice, almost as if it was next to him, say "Oh yes Tekan, I am dead, in a way." Tekan then swung his scythe at the area where he had heard the voice but it encountered nothing but air. He then said with a touch of fear in his voice "W-what do you mean?" He then shook his head and said with courage instead of fear in his voice "Stop using the shadows to hide yourself! Show yourself coward!" "Coward?" he heard as his reply. "Tsk, tsk Tekan, I thought you knew me better than that. If I could I would show you myself and fight honorably but alas that is part of why I said I'm dead in a way." "What? What are you speaking about? Why can you not show yourself?" Tekan asked as he stopped looking around and lowered his cannon. Makuta then answered "You see Tekan my physical form died with most of my energy, but luckily enough I had a small portion of my energy stored up just in case something like this happened." "Why?" Replied Tekan. "It's not like you can do much with only a small portion of energy. You wouldn't even be able to create a new body." "That shows what you know." Replied Makuta. "Also why all of the questions? Why else would I store some of my energy? To take revenge on you worthless toa and matoran! I always knew that if I fell it would only be because of all of you! Also I never did say how big that portion of energy was now did I?" Tekan then chucked and said "How do you expect to do that with no physical form? Now would be the only time to strike unexpectedly and even if you did the toa would most likely prevail and I'm not there so whatever you did would miss me. Also even if you did somehow get another physical form with whatever energy you have we'd just stop you again." Tekan then heard Makuta make a dark, disturbing and evil laugh before replying. "Poor, poor, Tekan. Still hasn't figured out my plans. I'm quite surprised you haven't figured this out yet, I thought you were smarter. This whole entire time I've been distracting you from the threat only you would notice in time." "WHAT!" Yelled Tekan. He then heard a loud groan of metal on metal behind him. As he turned around he saw the giant robot that had hosted Makuta slowly stand up and start aiming a ball of shadow energy at the toa. "Why did you bring me over here?" Asked Tekan in a panic "Even if I had noticed I wouldn't have been able to stop it!" "Because" Replied Makuta. "If it hadn't been for you multiple plans wouldn't have failed and the toa would have had a much harder time fighting me. So I have a special revenge for you. You'll have to watch all of your friends, everyone you tried to protect, die while you live knowing you didn't do anything." "NOOOOO!" Yelled Tekan as he tried to run out of the canyon but found that he couldn't move. As he was forced to watch, the metal giant shot the ball of shadows at the group of matoran and toa, who had just noticed the threat, some of them were trying to escape while others who had the hau or kakama were attempting to make a sheild around all of them or carry as many of them off as possible at a time, but most of them appeared to have just given up not making any attempt to escape the attack which all of them knew was to late to avoid. The entire time all Tekan could hear was Makuta's booming laugh. As the ball of energy hit the others there was a large explosion and a wave of dark energy came flying away from it, as it was about to hit Tekan he heard Makuta say "Goodbye Tekan. This is what you get for betraying me." The wave then hit him and as he was blasted back there was a final explosion and a flash of light, then nothing but darkness...
10 or so millennium later
On a world populated by robots and slightly biomechanical creatures there was building which created heroes, robots that were dedicated to fighting evil and had special power cells that allowed them to preform feats other couldn't, this building is known as Hero factory. Inside of hero factory there was a robot scientist walking down the hall towards mission control, this particular robot was well known as one of the best mission chiefs there was, his name is Zib. "Hmmm." Thought Zib. "I'm surprised that there haven't been that many calls for heroes today. Oh well it the heroes did need a small break anyw-SIR!" He heard over the comm system built into his goggles, interrupting his thoughts. "Yes?" he replied. "We've just got a sos signal that we think you're going to want to see." "I'll go get one of the teams. Now then where is this sos signal that is so important I am the one you called, coming from?" He questioned. "The empty sector on the dead planet. It's the same coordinates that the group of missing scientists last contacted us from... Sir are you okay?" "Yes I'm fine." Replied Zib. "Just didn't expect that we would ever get a sos signal from there. I'll go and get alpha team ready. Also contact Stormer and his team and tell them to come to the launching bay." Zib ordered as he started to run towards the docking bay. "Yes sir" replied the comm attendant. A little bit later Zib arrived at the docking bay, already telling alpha team to meet him there as he had been running. As he enter there could be seen a group of 6 robots, each with different powerful looking weapons, all different colors, and slightly bigger than zib. Their names where Surge, Breez and Furno, Alpha team, the others were Bulk, Stringer and Stormer (insert team name here) Team. As Zib walked up Stormer said "Even though I do have to admit that this reunion is fun, why did you call us down here? What's going on?" Zib then replied "Glad you asked. As I know you are all still a bit tired from the Von-Nebula mission, this mission is extremely important. We recently got a sos signal from an empty sector, one devoid of all life and planets that could sustain it, on a dead world, which we believe once supported life but was somehow destroyed." As he said this he pulled up a hologram of planet with a couple of large craters on it, large chunk blown out of it and smaller chunks floating around the hole. "Recently we sent out a group of scientists to see if there was anything on it that might identify what caused the destruction. Everything was going fine until about 2 months ago, the scientist sent a message to us saying that they might have found something, then nothing. When we sent out a rescue team they couldn't find anything and that the ship was destroyed. We have just got a sos signal from their last known coordinates and I need you to go out there and find them. The reason I chose all of you is because we have no idea what attacked their ship or what is out there and I decided to send out 2 of our best teams to be safe." "I'm happy to hear that you consider us one of the best hero teams." Said Furno as he examined the hologram. "But doesn't it seem a bit unnecessary to send two teams to a dead planet?" "I have to agree with the kid on this one." Said Stormer as he walked over to Zib. "Not arguing, the choice is yours, just seems a bit strange to send all of us to a dead planet, even if it might have something on it." Zib the sighed and put his head in his hand. "You don't think I don't know that already? Trust me my reason for needing all of you will be explained shortly." As he finished speaking he then went over to the computer connected to the hologram and it changed to a password lock screen which he started to unlock. As he was about to unlock it he turned toward the others and said "What I am about to show you is highly classified information. We didn't reveal this to the public to keep from causing a panic. There are creatures on that planet and whatever they are they are something we have never seen before and their destructive power is incredible." As he said this he clicked unlock and a video recording started up. As the video started up it showed a scientist fiddling with the camera before stepping back and saying "I am chief scientist Kilarz. The reason we're sending in this video early is because we believe we may have found signs of life or at least what used to live here! We discovered some strange metal devices that look like old weapons along with some other objects, some strange carvings along with strange runes and we discovered a strange tunnel like area in the cliff face that has fresher looking carvings and is sealed by a stone door that we are preparing to break through, also we believe that there is something intelligent here, some of our supplies have gone missing, a couple of scientist have also reported seeing a large, and humanoid form watching or traveling in the shadows and we have heard strange noises like screeches or clashes of metal, at night near the base and have found craters that weren't there before around the base, some smoking. We have some of the items we've discovered in the lab, which I am going to show you in a bit, where we are trying to figure out what they are made of and do." He then proceeded to walk around the camp pointing out some of the buildings and what they were for, what they have accomplished so far, he even showed them were some of the scientist had a slab of stone with the runes in it and were trying to translate it. As he finished up and started to head towards the lab it suddenly blew up creating a large cloud of dust around it, as the scientists around it ran off, Kilarz stayed where he was and saw a large form that had two glowing orange eyes and seemed to be carrying a large double spike ended staff, appear in the fading dust. It then aimed one of the ends of the staff at one of the buildings and a large beam of energy hit it, destroying it. It then tilted its head back and a loud screech was heard along with multiple others from around the camp that caused Kilarz to finally start running. As he ran the camera picked up on the creatures chasing after other scientists or destroying buildings. One of the energy blasts then hit near Kilarz sending him and the camera flying, as the camera landed it ended up at an angle that was able to see Kilarz and a bit above him. As he slowly started to get up he stopped as one of the creatures walked into view of the camera, but only the legs were visible, a large clawed hand then slowly descended down and was about to pick up Kilarz by his neck, as the claws touched his neck a scythe suddenly swooped through and sliced through the beast causing it's upper half to fall out of the camera angle. A pair of large black legs with clawed black feet and covered in scuffed and damaged black armor. A large black clawed hand then reached down and scooped up Kilarz, the being then jumped out of the way of an acid stream which hit the camera causing the video to end. As the hologram shut down Zib walked over to another one of the compute displays and activated it causing the image of a large bipedal being with a strange hunched back with a spiked ridge running along it, clawed hands, strangely shaped feet that looked like they could fit together and a slightly cone shaped head that looked like the bottom half of the mouth split into two pieces. "As you can see from the video that is why I decided two teams might be the best. This image I have here is a recreation of the creatures as best as we could from what was seen of them in the recording. their weak points appear to be around the joint areas, the leg joints and such have less armor than the other areas and are quite primitive, the second is that from their condition and design they may be fast but they are not agile even less so from their age, or even smart as it appears from how they acted, and the final is that we believe to be a weak point is the mouth, as we saw it opens when they screech and they seem to screech a lot, seeing as how the mouth is designed that gives a lot of room for a weapon strike which would be critical for them seeing as how it would most likely destroy their head. Their strengths are their numbers because we don't know it, their weaponry that we have little knowledge of but is quite strange, and their lack of care for their own or other ones of theirs lives and sheer dumbness. We also have info and a design of the other creature which came through with the message." He then clicked on the display ageing and the image of a large, pitch black humanoid creature appeared. It had clawed hands and feet, stood at a bit taller than a hero in XL form, had broad, spiked shoulders and its head appeared to have ridges coming out of the top and sides of its head, and green eyes. The rest of his body had no designs or real form. "As you can see there isn't much on its form because he has only been seen from the shadows and a bit in the camera. From what we can tell it seems to be peaceful but we have no way of really knowing so if you do see it don't fight it unless it attacks first, we have no info on what it and its weapons can do, its strengths and weaknesses or even how intelligent it is." "Sheesh he's a big one aint he?" Said stringer as he examined the picture. "Of course as they always say the bigger they are the harder they Fall." "And the harder it is to sneak up on it or keep it from running." Stormer put in. "Wow way to kill any hope that Stringer just brought Stormer" Replied Furno. "I am just stating the exact facts, we don't need hope for this, we need to go in there not being cocky, knowing we might lose will help keep us on our guard instead of believing we'll come out fine and just waltz in there. Besides I took out a giant once this will be like fighting one of the villains, just a more damaged, rusty one." "Ok enough of the chitchat." Zib said as he started shooing the heroes towards the hangar. "Time's a wastin. Who knows how long those scientists have left." "Sheesh calm down! We're going, we're going." Said Surge as zib followed them, shooing them with his clipboard.
5 hours later, above the dead planet.
A hero craft slowly lowers itself down onto the planet's surface, creating a cloud of dust from the engines and landing next to a second spaceship of similar design only smaller, has less weapons and is extremely damaged. After the ship landed a ramp opened on the back revealing six forms, all carrying different weapons, within. "No wonder this place is a dead planet." Furno said as he walked down the ramp and looked around. He then indicated a large crater in the distance "I mean look at that crater! What could've caused that?" "You are correct." Breez replied as she pulled out a small bio scanner. "And as I pointed out when we were descending, near our landing are a large chunk of the planet is destroyed, not just the crater." "Alright enough chit chat you two, we have some missing scientists to find." Stormer said as he joined them outside the ship. "S-sir I th-think it might be a good idea to pr-proceed with quite a bit of caution." Surge stammered out as he nervously walked over to the other ship. "I mean we heard the reports from the original scout party for the scientists that the spaceship was heavily damaged but they didn't say it looked like that!" He exclaimed as he waved his arms at the spaceship to indicate it. "I mean part of its melted, part of its rusted and that part looks like it was eaten! That means that whatever those creatures are have flame or acid weapons, corrosive weapons and I don't even want to think of what the eaten looking bit could be from!" "Don't worry little buddy." Stringer said as he put his hand on Surges shoulder. "If anyone tries anything I'll give em a taste of my sound cannon." "Lets just hope they don't actually take a taste of it Eh?" Bulk Joked as he nudged stringer with his elbow. "Ok enough with the chit chat." Stormer said as he started to walk towards the crater Furno had pointed out. "As I've already said, we have some scientists to save so let's get to it." "Wait, we have to go all the way out there?" Furno Questioned. "Yes, that's where the scientists situated their main base and lab." As the heroes reached the edge of the crater and started to descend down a path carved into the side of the crater they immediately felt a change in the atmosphere, it was almost as if the crater itself radiated evil, fear and malice, as if something terrible had happened in it besides the destruction or something of unbelievable evil resided within it. "Man is this freaky." Stringer said as he looked over the side of the trail and down towards the bottom of the crater. "Ok team everybody be on your guard." Stormer ordered as he readied his ice cannon. "Sounds like a plan." Furno replied as he powered up his flame cannon. "Y-yeah what he said." Surge stammered as he steadied his gun in front of him by holding it with both hands. As they had been walking a sense of foreboding had appeared and steadily gotten worse the farther into the crater they got. As they entered a stretch of the trail that was enclosed by two large walls of stone, in a ravine like formation, Furno, while still walking, asked Stormer "This is pretty weird right? We still haven't been attacked or even sighted any evidence of other beings or creatures yet." "Normally I'd hate to agree with a question like that but you are right." Stormer replied. "This is very suspicious, be on your guard for an attack, this is the perfect area for an ambush." "Whatever you say sir." Bulk replied as he and the others warmed up their weapons. As they finished prepping their weapons a loud screech was heard and three of the strange beings that had attacked the scientists dropped down from the top of the walls. The first was green, second yellow and final, which appeared to be the leader, was black. The Heroes immediately went into defensive positions, forming a half circle and aiming their weapons at the creatures. Stormer then stepped forward towards the black one, moving his gun so it wasn't aiming directly at it but close enough that the intent was still there. "We come in peace. We do not wish to fight you, we only want to retrieve the scientists you atta-Agghhh!" Stormer yelled as the creature whipped out its staff and fired a shockwave from one of the tips, sending Stormer flying. The other heroes immediately started to return fire as Furno called out "Stomer are you ok?!" "I'm fine rookie." Stormer replied as he stood up and lunged at the creature, smashing it with his cannon, causing it to stumble. The other beings had also been fighting, the green one firing blasts of acid from its staff and the yellow one firing laser beams from its eyes and slashing at the heroes with its staff. "Ha ha! Take that!" Bulk cheered as he rammed into the green one with his cannon before shooting it at close range, sending it crashing into the wall. "Look out!" Breez yelled as she tackled him, barely knocking both of them out of the way of the beings return blast of acid as it recovered immediately. "Thanks Breez." Bulk grunted as he got back up. "How did it recover that fast? These guys are a lot stronger than they look considering the damage." Bulk said as the creature charged at him, attempting to slash him with its staff. "Yipe!" Surge yelled as he was barely missed by a heat beam from the yellow creature. "Take this!" He then fired a blast of electricity at the being, but it somehow deflected it with its staff, redirecting it into the wall. "Uh-oh." Surge said as the being then screeched and charged at him. "HELP!" He screamed as he ran away from it as it slashed at him. Suddenly there was a flash of silver and the creature collapsed in two pieces, Surge had looked back, while still running, as it had happened, exclaiming "What just happened?!" In surprise before grunting in pain as he ran into a large solid object, knocking the wind from him. "What did i just hiiii... oh my." He said as he looked up and saw a massive, pitch black being, moving a large scythe to rest on its shoulder after it had swung. "H-hello. Y-you're not gonna k-kill me right?" Surge questioned nervously as he stared up at the being. It then looked down and he could see green eyes behind its damaged yet still fearsome looking black mask, its face slowly took on a small expression before it shook its head no and helped him up before walking over to the others. "Man this thing is irritating." Bulk said to stringer as they hid behind a boulder from the green beings blasts of acid. "I can agree with that!" Bulk yelled as they both jumped from behind the rock as a blast of acid melted through it. "And we're supposed to not kill it too!" He said as he hit the creature with a blast of sound, causing it to screech in pain and fall onto one knee. It then pushed itself up on its staff before lifting it and sending a blast of acid at Stringer, which he barely dodged. "I mean look at it! It's so damaged I have to keep my weapon at low pow-OOF!" He grunted as he tripped and fell over. "Crap! That's a dent in my noggin." He said as he started to push himself up, his eyes closed in pain as he rubbed his head. As he opened them he saw the being standing in front of him with its staff in his face. "Fantastic, well my goose is cooked eh?" He said as he braced himself, closing his eyes. He then heard a whooshing and slicing sound, followed by a thunk. After he didn't feel acid spray directly onto his face he slowly opened one of his eyes, seeing the staff gone. "Ok what happened to the rusty buggerrr-ello there big fella." He said nervously as he opened both of his eyes and saw the black being in front of him, slightly leaning as it extended its hand towards him. He then grabbed its hand and said "Ok, so I take it your friendly, what happened to that other fellooo-oh thats what happened." He then saw the other being slashed along an angle, lying in two pieces beside him while the being pulled him up. Bulk then came over and grabbed Stringer in a bear hug before letting him go and jokingly punching him on the arm. "Man I thought you were going to die. If mister big, black and deadly over there didn't appear" He said as he indicated the being "you would been fried more than a tree in a volcano." The being gave off a small, ancient, rusty sounding chuckle at that, earning a surprised look from the other two, before it shook its head and walked over to the final of the three beings, it's scythe resting on its shoulder. "Yo Stormer think this guys the leader?" Furno asked as he jumped out from behind a large chunk of stone, firing three shots at the creature, which it dodged, before landing in a roll and crouching to avoid the beings own attack, which was a large sonic wave of sound from its staff. "Well seeing as how it's appears to be the least damaged and best fighter I would agree." Stormer said as he shot the being, freezing part of its arm, which it quickly freed by smashing it against the wall, shattering the ice, and shrieked before turning around and lunging at Stormer, catching him by surprise as he dodged away, as he landed the creature shot him, sending him flying into the wall. "Stormer!" Furno yelled before being forced to dodge from the creature's blast. "Don't worry kid I'm fine- check that! I could use some help here!" He said as the creature lunged at him slamming his staff into the wall where Stormers head was before he rolled away. The creature then grabbed Stormer, slamming him into the ground, causing him to grunt in pain before the creature shrieked directly into his face and aimed its staff directly at it, the sound wave starting to form. "Well this is going to hurt." Stormer muttered just before a flash of silver passed through the creature, causing it to stiffen, the energy dissolving as its grip loosened on the staff, dropping it as its top half collapsed next to Stormer, revealing the dark being, still bent slightly and with its scythe ending the swing. It then raised the scythe, resting it on its shoulder before brushing the still standing lower half aside and grabbing Stormer, lifting him to his feet. "Thanks." Stormer said as he gave himself a small brush off, he the raised his weapon, aiming it at the being. "Sorry about this but despite how you've helped us we still don't know if you're on our side and you do seem quite a bit violent seeing as how you killed those three things." The being raised its eyebrow and gave off a quizzical look while looking around, seeing the other heroes surrounding it in a circle, weapons also aimed. It then chuckled before saying in a male sounding, ancient, slightly halting, and creaking voice that sounded like it hadn't been used for years, yet still gave off a sense of great power "You are heroes correct?" Stromer and the others stepped back in surprise, not expecting it to be able to speak their language, Stormer then shook his head, recomposing himself and said "Yes we are heroes. Where did you get that term and why did you ask it? Also how did you learn our language? "The sci-scien-other beings said you would come after they made the tower, they also taught me your language if I let them study me and told them about my species."
