Pitharu is a Onu/Ta matoran permanently fused together by the Brotherhood of Makuta prior to him coming to the Elintari reality
About this creation
Pitharu was at one time two separate matoran, Piphon, a Ta-matoran and Tharu, an Onu-matoran. Both lived in a small village on Nynrah and considered each other as a friend. Then about 50,000 years ago Makuta Chirox and Makuta Tridax captured the two when they were out gathering bula berries although the two makuta shape shifted to look like a local rahi. After Piphon and Tharu were captured the two makuta put both of them under temporary stasis until they got back to destral. Once they reached destral and gave another dose of stasis. After this they forcibly fused the two matoran into a permanent body. The body had armor the color of the night sky and of a wildfire. Unfortunately during the process Pitharu lost an arm that had to be replaced with a fully mechanical arm that constantly holds a black and red sword. After they deemed their experiment a success they released Pitharu with no memory of their previous life, on the island of Visorak and gave the Visorak specific rules not to kill them. Four hours after the makuta dropped Pitharu off he awoke in a state of panic and utter pain. It took him 30 minutes to calm down and manage himself. After he calmed down he travelled without any plan until he came to the shore. Realizing that he could not escape on his own due to lack of resources Visorak had so he decided to build his own hut in a secluded and hard to travel area of Visorak that no one would find him. It wasn’t till 45,000 years later when he met a transformed Toa (who had unknown to both had the same experiment done on him as Pitharu did, except that he was a Toa of fire and a Toa of plant life) Both Pitharu and Toa Omanaku, the fused toa, Were able to escape Visorak by creating a huge tree and hollowing it out and set out as a team that did not follow the Toa Code rule of no killing your enemy. Since neither of them knew about it After they left the island they set out and hunted petty criminals and were sometimes asked to find a certain item or being for a good profit. About 500 years before the mass migration to Spherus-Magna they had been sucked into a dimensional portal that was located in one of the southern islands (The portal looked like a sand pit but only transported those who “ had found unity within themselves”). The portal took them to the Elintari Reality and flung them into a dense part of Bota-Magna and Pitharu and Omanaku have restarted their business now working with the Agori as well.
After his transformation Pitharu had gained the elemental traits that a Ta-matoran and an Onu-matoran would naturally have, although these abilities were also increased and now he is stronger than a Turaga but weaker than a Toa and can walk through flames without receiving damage. His height has also increased to that of an Av-matoran in Karda-Nui. He wields a long black sword with a black and red pommel. This sword is permanetly attached to his mechanical arm. His sword also allows him fire bursts of energy that will inflict a feeling of being on fire to whomever gets struck by the blast. He wears a powerless Great Kanohi Tryna that is the only mask he can wear for all other masks won’t prevent him from going into that comatose state.
Due to being two fused minds his personality has changed into a combination of the previous personalities. His new personality is as follows: he can at times be a little too sarcastic and impatient. Although he can now think very strategically and can also evaluate if a plan will work without actually testing the plan. He has also become a little sadistic due to the very small amount of insanity the fusion has caused. But regardless he is a very noble and trustworthy partner to Toa Omanaku.
