About this creation
Shifter's completed form
Shifter's first form
about 84,000 years ago
Shifter was at one time a rogue toa of earth who had killed his team by accident including his only real friend. After the death of his team he fled to a southern island in shame. he had camped for a night on the edge of a cliff. while he was sleeping he was attacked by a keelerak and a vohtorahk that had been following him the whole time. The visorak had attacked before he could grab his weapon. although the toa had been pushed to the edge of the cliff and the visorak had prepared themselves to lunge at him.the toa was able to lean backwards allowing the visorak to fly over the edge but the vohtarak clamped onto his arm with it's pincers causing him to tumble over the edge too. unknown to any of the three there was a large pool of energized protodermis at the bottom of the cliff. What emerged from that pool was now the combined body of the two visorak and the toa with the toa's spirit controlling the new body. Shifter eventually recovered from the shock of his new body he went back to where he had set up his camp to recover the only item of his past life; the dagger that had been given to him by his friend the day before he died.Shifter traveled in no set path for 2 days still amazed yet disgusted with his new form. On the third day Shifter encountered a dark hunter on a mission to take a unique object from a village nearby. Unknown to Shifter the dark hunter was a trainee that was being trained by gladiator. Shifter automatically attacked the dark hunter out of his hatred for the dark hunters that still remained from his previous life as a toa. Shifter had defeated the dark hunter but he let his anger get the better of him and went too far and started digging his claws deep into the dark hunters flesh, although unknown to anyone his claws could actually inject hordika venom into a being. Gladiator then stepped out of the shadow and ended the fight, knocking them both unconscious. Gladiator transported them to odina and left them in the Shadowed One's chamber.
When Shifter awoke he saw the Shadowed One examining a rahi that he had never seen before, then the shadowed one turned to shifter and asked him what happened and shifter then realized the rahi was the dark hunter he fought. the Shadowed One made shifter a member of the dark hunters seeing his use against visorak. Shifter despised being a dark hunter but realized the other option was death, he even eventually enjoyed working as a dark hunter.
1,500 years after he became a dark hunter shifter was sent on a mission with savage (since he can control savage better) to the island of Nynrah to capture several Nynrah ghosts. Shifter and savage had been able to infiltrate and capture 6 nynrah ghosts, although as they were escaping several other nynrah ghosts attacked savage and in his anger Savage killed all but one of the captured nynrah ghost. The Matroan of plasma was taken by shifter and quickly injected hordika venom to heal the wounds. during the trip back to Odina Shifter had manipulated the venom to create a sapient rahi/matoran with legs similar to spider legs and a scorpion like tail, His mask became beast looking and could not be removed without causing great pain. Shifter Approached The Shadowed One and asked the Shadowed one permission to form a small team of hordika victims. The Shadowed one gave Shifter permission to form the team on two conditions: all members of the team must follow any orders given to them by the Shadowed one and the second condition was that Shifter could not transform any dark hunters and that any hordika victims he made had to be brought forth to the Shadowed for evaluation and if The shadowed one did not approve the being then it would be killed upon decision via the Shadowed one. The shadowed one also gave the past nynrah ghost matoran/rahi the code name Striker, he did not bother giving hordunka a code name since Shifter transformed hordunka who was a Onu-matoran into a three legged rahi with a tail that could fire bolts of energy that would scramble a opponents sense of balance, a head that looked like it was permanently fused to a krana and removed all intelligence. The Shadowed one also told Shifter to include savage since he could control savage pretty well with his unique powers.
Shifter recently joined the dark hunters formation with the brotherhood to create the Brotherhood of Hunters in the Elintari Reality.
shifter form changed drastically. his height increased to 8 feet tall, his armor had formed into a exo-skeleton connected directly to his flesh. his mask had fused to his face and his hands and feet were now clawed with his feet able to dig into the ground preventing him from being moved even at hurricane force winds could not dislodge him. his shoulders turned into large reservoirs to contain his hordika venom that travel down his arms and into his claws.
Shifter still has control over the element of earth, although not at the same level as a regular toa any more, but also gained the near impenetrable armor of a vohtarak. his transformation allows him to inject hordika venom via his claws that he then jabs into fresh realizing the venom. He can then manipulate the venom to change the subjects physical and mental traits for example he can give a being injected with his venom four legs, tails etc even cause them to lose all intelligence and develop a rahi like mind frame. In sapient species he can prevent their mind from reverting to the beast side from fully taking over although though will still suffer from enhanced senses, increased aggression and lessened ability to think complex. He can also speed up or slow down a creature/beings hordika transformation caused by hordika venom. He is considered the ultimate infiltrator of visorak controlled or guarded areas since he give off a mist that causes a visorak to see him as a member of the horde.
He wears a mask of speed that is now fused to his face although he can still use it's power but requires more focus. He also has a grappling hook like weapon that launches a claw hook that attaches to an object (living or inanimate) and can focus the powers of the spinners of the visorak that are part of his body had so it could attach to a tree and melt the tree with acid or latch onto a being and cause great pain or paralyze the being.
He recently stole a sword that he wields in his right hand that can channel his elemental powers although the weapon has become fused to his hand due to a experimental chemical being spilled on his hand while holding the sword on a mission to raid a brotherhood of makuta base. Unknown to many he has a small third arm on his back that he uses to throw the dagger he has kept from his friend and the dagger now has paralyzing poison on the tip of it. if he does have to use it he makes sure he retrieves it.
