Taken from Knight of Nights: Knoxusís Story
(Note: Story is subject to change. Some words/names are changed to avoid spoilers)
The Princess of Luna Magna led Knoxus down the large spiral staircase into the planetís Moonlight Mine. Knoxus remembered seeing this structure from space, during his first time coming here. From far away, one could mistake it for a partial eclipse, even though Luna Magna has no moons. The King followed close behind, trailed by the Captain of the Lunarian Guard.
They said they would help me, Knoxus thought, But this seems oddly suspicious...
Eventually, the Lunarian Princess stopped at a branch in the mine. It was blocked up with a large iron door. The King snapped his fingers and one of the guards approached and unlocked the door. They walked in, but the Captain of the Guard stayed outside, locking the door behind them. Now Knoxus had the right to be suspicious.
In the center of the room there was a large complicated machine. Wires and tubes extended everywhere, all of them seeming to connect to different points on the walls. The walls of the room looked to be made of a dark blue crystal, and, upon closer inspection, were slowly pulsating with white light.
What is this place? Knoxus couldnít help but ask.
This is the prototype power generator for Luna Magna. The Princess replied. Itís a top secret project weíve been working on for ages. Eventually, all Moonlight Mining will cease, and power will be transferred from here, to the rest of the planet.
The King of Luna Magna sat down in a corner, looking suspiciously at Knoxus. As he had since they first saw each other.
The Princess sighed. I modified the machine to transfer power into other things while you were away. Once we strap you in, you and your armor will become supercharged with Moonlight. Not only that but the burst of energy will amplify your elemental powers. Youíll be able to complete the mission you told me about without much trouble.
The King stood up abruptly. You told her something without telling it to me too!? As King of Luna Magna I am supposed to know about everything that happens on this planet! Explain yourself!
Knoxus responded calmly. I told you when you interrogated me, that I donít tell anyone I donít trust anything. I do, somewhat, trust your daughter.
Why you, Iíll have you dropped into the mine for that! The king moved to grab Knoxus, but the Princess stopped him.
What are you doing? Have you forgotten who he is? The Princess said urgently.
The King pulled away. No, I havenít. But I tell you, that accursed Mata-Nui has changed him.
Knoxus felt awkward. The Lunarianís hatred towards Mata-Nui was one of the things that made Knoxus suspicious of them, especially the King. But he somewhat understood where they were coming from, knowing what happened to them millions of years ago.
It was time. The Princess led Knoxus to the Machine. Knoxus looked at her as she strapped him in, and thought about how strange she was. She seemed nonviolent, but she supported her extremely demented and violent father. What happened to her? Was she just the mental equivalent of a child who grew up through the rich history of an abandoned planet?
She closed two metal cuffs around his wrists.
This isnít going to hurt, is it? Knoxus asked.
Only if youíre a shadow. The Princess responded.
Knoxus gulped, looking at his Shadow Infection.
The princess moved behind a control board, and grasped a lever.
Initiating Moonlight Power Transfer! The Princess started a countdown.
The king leaned foreword slowly.
Knoxus braced himself.
She pulled the lever.
Suddenly, Knoxusís eyes went white. He couldnít think, there was a ringing sound in his head. He felt his body tense up. Power started surging through his hands, and up his arms. His shadow infection started burning intensely, but with the sound in his mind he couldnít tell if he was screaming or not. When the power reached his Mask, he heard a sharp cry that sounded like the Makuta he fought on Bota Magna, along with seeing visions from his life as a matoran on Luna Magna, Stelt, and Karda Nui. Eventually, all of it stopped. Knoxus felt himself go limp and fall to the floor. His eyes faded to black.
Slowly, but surely, Knoxus regained consciousness. He opened his eyes, and saw the Princess looking over him, relieved. The King was standing, staring at him, and looking somewhat disappointed that the power transfer didnít kill him.
The feelingsí mutual. Knoxus said sarcastically to the King.
Knoxus stood up. The ringing and burning had stopped, and he could see again. Looking at himself, his armor was now the same dark blue crystal as the walls of the transfer room. He looked at his previously shadow infected side, and laughed.
My armorís not black anymore! He said in bewilderment. The transfer worked!
Knoxus extended his hand, and with just a little thought, a ball of Moonlight energy appeared in his hand.
Now this is cool!
With your new ability to produce Moonlight, you should be able to give the Luna Dial enough energy to travel to the future, and complete your mission. The Princess said.
Knoxus turned toward The Princess of Luna Magna. If I donít win with this, then I donít know if I ever will. Thank you.
You can thank me by remembering Luna Magna and coming back to visit often.
I will not forget you. Knoxus said.
With that, the Captain of the Guard opened the door. Knoxus shot a glance at him as he walked out to the edge of the staircase. After one final look back, Knoxus jumped into the mine, activated his rocket boosters, and flew out at top speed. He left Luna Magna's atmosphere and headed into space...

Well that's were you're wrong, Johnny! You see, this Knoxus is a big deal because... well, I guess it's easier to explain with a picture. :)
