OOC: behold, my latest creation... I command you, monster... live... liiiiiiive.... LLLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVVVEEE! *thunder crashes loudly* It's... it's... AAALLIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE! IC Somewhere, in the deep dark, in the farthest recesses of the underground, a single cocoon slept. Well, to say that it slept was not accurate, for it constantly was wiggling and moving ever so slightly. To say the creature inside slept would also be an un-truth, though unconscious at times would be more accurate. Indeed, it truly WAS a creature within, no longer turaga or even toa, but something far more... disturbing. Changing. Mutating. Whatever it was before, it was not now, forever gone to a monster that slowly twisted itself into the victim within. A truly diabolical venom... and scheme. "Arise, my creation... your metamorphosis is at hand... reveal your true identity... " The cocoon began to quiver as the last and final rapid mutations took place, the entity within struggling to get free, the sounds of a wild animal emanating from inside the web-like chamber. Finally the bonds could restrain it no more, and cracks began to appear. *rrrip* "Yes... " *craaack* "Yessss... " *rrriiiipcraack**tear**skshoooooooshk* There was a small explosion of solid web as a slightly wet being hit the ground with a heavy thud. Ever so slowly it stood, its breathing labored, large, sleek muscles glistening in the dim light... and wild look a of ferocity that would shake even a toa to the core. It was a hideous monster, a cross between a toa and an animal, only angry and a LOT more dangerous. "Be silent, creature, and listen to me well. It is I, The Makuta, your Master, the one who has given you freedom and power fromand over the Turaga and those who would follow them. Come." The creature calmed slightly, taking its first hesitant steps and then bowing to one knee. "Yes?" come the hoarse reply. "You were once a proud Toa, a protector of the Matoran... but as you can see you are far from that now. What you are is a direct result of a slight... disagreement you had with the elders. Due to this they stripped your rank, your power, your identity... and almost your life. This is what they turned you into. A monster. A demon. A terror to behold. They have outcasted you for your supposed crimes." "As much as you want revenge, I must command against it. You requested power to discredit them; I have upheld my end of the bargain. You are now a living, walking example of their treachery, what they do to those that do not go along with their rules and commands. It is now time to uphold yours. Should you kill the turaga or the matoran you will only solidify what they said you were: a mindless killer. Merely spread my power, discredit their principles, destroy their sway over the matoran. Now go, Toa Hordika." There was a roar as it went galloping off tot he surface. A dark chuckle followed behind, well pleased with its work. Minds can be returned, minds can be healed, such as those who had withstood his Infection, but this mutation, this beast that was introduced into his system... it was incurable. He would forever have to deal with a wild and animalistic side... a split personality so to say. He got power all right... Laughter echoed across the chamber. OOC: well, I timed this for Halloween, so I hope you enjoyed Anyway, I take it you're fairly well-aquainted with the Hordika, so I don't need to go through it with you. How you look is up to you, but you are now part animal, a lot stronger and more feral if not always in control. You have lost your mask power. You no longer can control gravity, but you DO have a spinner with gravity shots; upon impact, it can either greatly increase the object's gravity for a short spell, or greatly reduce for a short spell, your choice upon firing. The longer you charge, the greater the affect and duration, but you are vulnerable while you do so. That should cover it. Have fun!
