Hope it's alright for me to join in here as well? I haven't forgotten Skyrise; I'm in the middle of working on a post there. I just thought maybe I could take a try at this game too? ^^
I'm... not completely sure the character's name works; please let me know if I'd do better to change it? Thanks ^^
Faction: League of Six Kingdoms
Brief Description: A female Toa of lithe build, Varxii stands about a head taller than your average Toa. Her armour, following the standard for Toa of Lightning, is primarily dark blue with white highlights around her joints and the bottom of her mask; said mask being a great Kanohi Kiril. She carries a powered blade slung across her back for melee combat, but prefers to channel her power through her bare hands rather than getting down and dirty in physical combat.
Background: The lone guardian of an island that was conquered by the League of Six Kingdoms. Varxii started off life as a fighty Matoran, always quick to brawl over little things; a tendency that made her an outlier from her community. When she was transformed into a Toa, the new Lightning elemental decided that was all the excuse she needed for the ways she'd always acted, and quickly took to the role of lone guardian of the island, fending off rahi and other attacks with ease and rarely mingling with her former fellows. She was keeping them safe, she was doing what she was good at... who needed their constant tutting and murmuring to themselves about how she shouldn't be so quick to a fight?
And then, one day, came the real test of her worth as a Toa; word reached the island that the League of Six Kingdoms was advancing on them, with every intention of wiping them off the map as a little-remarked footnote on their way to bigger prey. And, though she knew she shouldn't be, Varxii was thrilled. Finally, a chance to do what she was born to do, to prove her worth as a guardian! After overseeing the evacuation of all the rest of the island's inhabitants to safety, she returned to the place that was soon to be overrun, confident that she could repel any and all invaders.
She put up one Karzahni of a fight; but, in the end, her overconfidence proved her downfall, and she was overrun by the sheer number of the League forces. By the time Pridak arrived on the island's shore, she had been beaten into submission; the warlord was, however, impressed by the ferocious fight she had put up and decided he wanted that destructive capacity on his side. He demanded her loyalty in exchange for her life, and Varxii was in no position to refuse. Pridak allowed her time to heal, then placed her near the front lines of his assault force; though he keeps her on a short leash to keep her from betraying him, never taking for granted that she is trustworthy.
For her part, Varxii hasn't complained or protested. She does her part... but her true motive for being here, aside from self-preservation, remains a mystery to all.
Flaws: Overconfident, in a word. Varxii is just a little too sure of herself, of her powers, and often feels like she's unbeatable; this can have the effect of her failing to keep her guard up even in dangerous situations. So far, she has paid the price for this flaw only once, but it's just a matter of time before it happens again. Additionally, she's not so good at utilising her powers with pinpoint accuracy; she tends to think of them more as a powerful blunt instrument, and would struggle if she found herself in a situation that required a more delicate touch.
Powers: Possesses most standard powers of Lightning Toa, including the ability to shoot concentrated bursts of lightning from her bare hands, to cause electric shocks, and to create shields and cages of electricity. She can overload electrically-powered objects and opponents with ease. Additionally, her mask allows her to repair physical damage to any objects in her vicinity (although not organic damage).
