About this creation
The Makuta standing next to the Swift (Rahi) is a mysterious figure known only as the Scientist. He recently began showing off his new "invention", the Swift, and using them to extort money from entire islands. After way too many years spent in the lab, the Scientist finally perfected the Swift, which is designed to be mass-produced and used as a weapon (think Visorak), he demonstrated its power by unleashing a hundred or so on a volcanic island inhabited by a wide assortment of vicious beasts. He now uses the island as a breeding ground.
The Swift was engineered from the ground up to be an efficient killer. The Scientist actually used samples of his own DNA to endow the Swifts with rudimentary control over shadow, which they can channel through the blades on their arms. They are extraordinarily quick runners as well, and have just enough intelligence to communicate via body language and use fairly advanced tactics to capture their prey.
Interested back story. I like the part about the Rahi being engineered with some of the Master's DNA XD The build is quite nice. I find the head of the Rahi facinating O-o.
Just wait till I get mine done *laughs evily*
