This post might have a little more story than the other villains because he is the main antagonist for this part of my saga. Anyways here is The Dark Master, whose name shall be revealed…
not here, sorry but you’ll have to wait for a little bit longer for that answer to that great Mystery. He once lived in an orphanage for children whose parent’s had forgotten them. However unlike the other children he new his story well and it filled him with anger and the desire for revenge on the Toa.
The Mask brothers were the same race as the villagers of Okoto so they could marry them and produce children. However, they made a deal to never do such a thing in fear of upsetting the balance. Ekimu kept this promise to a tea, but Makuta well let’s just say it was a different story.
As we all know Makuta was not as loved by the citizens of the city. However their was one notable exception. Her name was Rahkia and she was an earth villager. She was the only one who really appreciated Makuta’s work. At first it was just innocent charming, yet in the end they were caught by Ekimu. He scolded Makuta for threatening the balance. just for love.
Rahkia expected her love to help stand up to him, but because his hands were tied. He abandoned her outside the city. He thought it was over for him and her. Yet she had given him a legacy. Walking for miles without food, water, or sleep to the next village. She got to an orphanage. The child that she loved to literal death was asleep and so didn’t see her passing. was left in a basket with a name tag on the handle and a locked journal.
After his sixteenth birthday he finally opened this journal and learned his past just as you read it. Having learn of his heritage and hearing rumors of the return of his father in the dark mountain he raced to it. Sadly all he saw was the Toa banishing his father back to the Shadow Realm. The resulting explosion knocked him down the mountain and maimed and mutated his body. His earth mask shattered, he replaced it with the discarded mask of Umarak. And so The Dark Master was born.
He is a very patient planner, and has great prowess with the dark magic. However, due to his injured and lanky body is not meant for a lot of fighting and prefers to make deals and uses others to attack his enemies. though he has a short sword for close quarters combat.
He is much more intimidating in the cover of darkness and fog, but even without it he is pretty intimidating. For clarity here is a size comparison between him and the average-sized Varr.
As a bonus here is a villains line up.
The Dark Master has lost everything his father, his mother, his mask, his old body, and even a good childhood (he was bullied at the orphanage). He now wants to make all in Okoto feel his pain. He plans to free his father using the life-force of the island. However when Darkness is at it’s darkest the Light is at it’s strongest. Next time we shall see the origins of these five new heroes and an older mentor.
