Rin grew up in the Shadow tribe, a secluded group of assassins located in the northern regions of Gitaxias. She excelled as an elite assassin, and could sneak up on anyone, if she had the patience to do so. Unlike most others in her village, who preferred to use large, magical weapons, Rin decided to stick with her two trusty daggers. They are the only weapons she's ever used, and the only weapons she plans on using. However, she was never happy. The Village Elder did not allow anyone to leave the Assassin Village, fearing that the way of the Assassin could be stolen and used by others who he deemed "Unworthy". Most were fine with this rule, as they too shared the Elder's same feelings. However, Rin dreamed of being free, and doing whatever she wanted to do.
Akrius found Rin when she was at a relatively young age (21 Years Old). Like Akrius, Rin had a strict personality, and longed for the chance to be free from the village. One night, Zaktoff met with Rin to sneak her out of the village. One of the villagers, a close friend of Rin, alerted the Elder, who ordered the guards to kill Zaktoff and confine Rin. Zaktoff began to attack the guards, and Rin was left with no other chance than to kill the very people she grew up with, including her friend that alerted the elder of her attempted escape.
The two managed to escape, leaving the Shadow Tribe in disrepair. Rin was the only trained Shadow Assassin left on the face of Gitaxias, as all of the other Shadow Tribe Assassins were killed when Rin tried to escape. Akrius took Rin on as his personal apprentice, along with Zaktoff, who was his current apprentice. Rin was put through many harsh tests, but she passed all of them. In fact, of the members currently part of The Web, Rin is believed to be the only one that can come close to matching Akrius.
Not one day goes by where Rin doesn't regret leaving the Shadow Village. She hates herself for killing her friends and neighbors, even though it was them who attacked her first, and Zaktoff who provoked the guards. Rin spends most of her time with Zaktoff, as the two share the same Assassin like combat style.
Rin used to be a soft and caring person when she was a part of the Shadow Tribe. However, her experiences with Akrius have since molded her into a very hard-hearted person. She often likes working alone, unless she's working with Zaktoff, and prefers to not show her feelings openly, unless in a traumatizing situation.

Like all members of The Web, Rin has a tail (This will be explained in a special article I plan on posting)
And that's it! These are the masks I'm going to be using for the next two members of The Web.
I haven't made a female moc in a long time, so I decided this was the perfect time to make one. Please comment on her below, as I'm not very good at making female mocs, and feel that I need to improve her still.
Anyway, the Moc itself is the first true assassin that I've made so far. Venom was supposed to be an assassin, but he is too bulky to be able to sneak around, and has too big of a weapon to stealthily attack someone with. Rin, however, has a skinnier body and much smaller weapons (I believe that these two Hero Factory Spikes work much better as daggers than the original Bionicle Daggers). I'm glad with the way that it came out, but you guys tell me what you think of her.
Other than that, I'm going to probably have the creation of The Web on hold so that I can rebuild some Mocs I've taken apart (which is more than half of my total mocs, sadly). In fact, the only Mocs currently built (Completely) are all the current members of The Web (Akrius, Zaktoff, Idohs and Rin), Teirryth, Venom and Frostbite. Most of my Mocs are only missing 2 - 10 pieces, while other mocs are completely un-built (Meaning I'm going to have to build them from the ground up again). So expect many updates and revamps on Mocs I've already made.
FINALLY (I apologize for typing so much, lol), I'm going to be making three articles, each on one of the factions that I've made (The Toa, The Makuta, and The Web). These articles will include the goals, members, beliefs, and system of each race, since I haven't really expressed any of those for any of the races so far. So look out for those. I'll probably be making one every week starting on either Friday or Saturday.
Okay, I'll be quiet (for now, lol). Until next time! Be sure to comment and tell me how to improve Rin.
