Venarka is a skakdi from zakaz who was exiled from zakaz by a warlord for trying to overthrow said warlord. the warlord allowed him to live but as a sign of a traitor he had his spine removed. They felt the pain he went through would have killed him but it did not and thus that is why they let him live but be known that he is a traitor and weak. luckily he was able to leave the island before the island was quarantined. he eventually made it to xia where he had to work to afford a boat. during his boat trip he was attacked by a group of zyglak before he made it to the main sea gate of metru-nui's dome.he was saved by a couple of matoran out for a boat ride. he killed the matoran and made it to the onu-metru shore where from there he sneaked past guards and made it into the lowest levels of the archives. He has lived there ever since.
Even though he took shelter in the lowest levels of the archives he found an ally that lived on the surface. his ally is niphinar a vengful matoran of magnetism who originated from Karzahni but was attacked on the boat ride to voy-nui and drifted to metru-nui, Niphinar has been sending supplies to venarka via a trained phase dragon. The 2 plan on escaping Metru-nui and hunting down their enemies.
Venarka has two special powers along with his basic element power of plant life.
Eyes he can activate thermal imaging so that he can see a foe hiding behind a rock or even see in the dark.
His physical power is that he can touch any living thing including trees plants toa etc and absorb their energy. there is no limit to how much energy he can absorb.
Venarka wield 2 weapons one being a cannon claw which can be used to fire small balls of energy, the power of the energy ball is based on how much energy he has absorbed. His second weapon his a sword that he can use to focus his elemental powers without needing another Skakdi.
Unlike most skakdi he is not super brutal or deceiving. He is able to think of what his actions may result in. Many are surprised that he can stand having a matoran as a partner which he explains is because they both share the same goals, revenge.
