Personality: As team leader Dahilan has had to make some tough decisions that have stuck with him for a long time. Sometimes these choices come back to haunt him at inopportune times. Dahilan tries to exude confidence and strength, although he’d rather be a follower than leader- it was only by his brethren’s choice that he became leader of the Toa Rela. Despite his doubts, the other Toa Rela know that he has what it takes to lead the team.
Bio: Dahilan was a Po-Matoran hunter who lived in Po-Rela.
Once when he was still a Matoran, Dahilan was walking in the forest near Bo-Rela with Anessiss, when they where attacked by a mysterious figure. Anessiss was hit and knocked unconscious while trying to save Dahilan's life. Dahilan was able to wound the attacker, who fled. Dahilan and Anessiss where both gifted with Toa stones to honor their efforts in defending each other. Since the island had no Toa team, Dahilan decided to create one, and offered Anessiss a place in it. Eventually more Toa joined, and the Toa Rela was created. This team stayed on Rela Nui for a time, in order to defend the villages from the threat of the Makuta-kara and their demonic creations. Soon after the Makuta-kara's defeat, Dahilan and his team began a journey across much of the known universe, in search of the Lost Being known only in legend as Un'duul. They defeated some of the worst Makuta ever known; destroyed insurgent Visorak hordes; and ended a plague that had fallen upon Spherus Magna. These and many more were the tasks of the Toa Rela; and all of these tasks they carried out, until finally they were, quite literally, all lost to history.
(All will be revealed in the story I'm working on!)
Here he is! Check out the awesomeness!
With his Nui Axe. My first thought was to use a keetorange axe head, but it looked awful, so I used a silver one instead.
Pose with hunting knives.
Dahilan can use his chain to climb, or tie up an annoying Matoran (... no).
Overview. Like Pirai and Peoros, he's entirely custom!
Arm. I love using torsos as forearms! I guess they technically count as custom. Also, shinguards for elbow armor = awesome.
Onua Mata claw. Looks pretty nice, eh?
Arm with no armor.
Torso. The Onua Mistika armor is an awesome piece, so when I got a keetorange one, I had to use it here.
The back. The HF torso armor works pretty well here.
Torso without armor. The Vahki torso gives Dahilan a bit of a hunch, which is what I was going for.
Back without armor. I guess the Metru piece is technically armor, but I consider it a greeble. :P
Legs. Knives are holstered on the thighs.
Why yes, I did use Komau as shinguards! They work so well!
Overview without armor. Some of the armor is actually holding him together, and so could not be removed.
With Pakari Nuva. Looks pretty good with it!
With Pakari. I decided to use the orange one for this shot, and it turned out well.
With Kakama. I don't have a brown one, so I used the next closest.
With Hau. Meh.
Size comparison with generic Inika build.
