Here he is. Amazing, right? I tried to give him a 'Samurai/Ninja' feel. Also, I puposefully separated the colors on his armor to make him look more realistic, like he is wearing different pieces of armor.
Konpaku was created just like any other Matoran. However, unlike most Matoran, he died very early on in his life due to an accident. The keeper of Batra Nui, The Bionicle Underworld, had pity on the poor Matoran and gave him half of his life back. But instead of being turned into a Hybrid Matoran/Ghost, he was separated into 2 Bodies. One of the halves was completely Matoran, while the other half was completely Spirit. They both were controlled by the same mind, and thus, are the same being.
The Matoran of Konpaku's village were shocked to find out that their companion had returned from the dead. And they accepted him back. (The Ghost half of him was not yet visible to them) With time, the village forgot of Konpaku's resurrection, and continued everyday life. Then the villagers started getting strange feelings when they were around Konpaku. Like 'cool breezes' and seeing things. Some of Konpaku's closest friends went insane after spending too much time with him. Then the rumors started to spread. Very soon after that, the rumors reached the Order of Mata-Nui. They immediately sent out an agent to watch him.
The Order was performing an operation to seek out unique Matoran that they could recruit and train to help battle the Brotherhood of Makuta. As Konpaku's village started to abandon him, the Order of Mata-Nui member that was watching him stepped in and brought him back to his Headquarters. Konpaku was given a Toa Stone and trained closely by Tobduk to become an Assassin. After transforming into a Toa, Konpaku's spirit half became visible, and he saw it for the first time. He then realized why his village rejected him and vowed he would eventually find out who did this to him. In the meantime, he rose to become the Order's Top Assassin by completing missions in record time. Knoxus was recruited soon after, and quickly beat Konpaku's record, becoming the Top Assassin himself. Now Konpaku is determined to become Top Assassin again, however, he has not forgotten his main objective...
Onto the MOC!!!!!
With his Spirit Half.
(I would say 'Best Freinds,' But since the Ghost half is also him, that may seem a bit creepy...)
His Ghost side alone.
