Lotta story stuff in this post too. You get a cookie if you're patient enough to read it :P
About this creation
Always nine there are. No more, no less. The Nine Dark Lords. They have other names too, of course--Monsters... Demons... some have even called them gods. No matter what you call them, they're always there.
When the universe was born, so too, was light. But to balance the good of life and creation, the ancient darkness gave birth to death. Soon after were born the first nine Dark Lords, who would do death's bidding. If one of the Dark Lords died their final death, one of the other Dark Lords would seek out an apprentice who would take place of the Dark Lord. Since the beginning of time, their have been countless generations of the Nine Dark Lords.
During the Great Being's construction of the Great Spirit Robot, the Nine Dark Lords challenged the creation of the Robot and the Matoran Universe. One Great Being, who the legends simply refer to as "Toa", single handedly defeated the Nine Dark Lords. The Great Being called Toa placed his sword, which he had named "The Deity Sword", deep inside the Great Spirit Robot. The other Great Beings created a warrior dubbed the Hinga Ki Muri, who's only purpose was to defend the Matoran Universe against the Dark Lords. The Hinga Ki Muri would be reincarnated time and time again, always there to protect against the Dark Lords. Eventually, the Hinga Ki Muri was born as a Matoran named Whero.
This is Dark Lord Mutunga, End of Worlds. His original body was destroyed by the sixth incarnation of the Hinga Ki Muri (who was also a direct ancestor of Whero, who is the seventh incarnation of the Hinga Ki Muri). The silver and gray and black colors are an artificial body, created for him after a bargain with death. Mutunga is the king of Mahanga, a kingdom which is at war with Basileia (Basileia is Whero's home).
The left arm is part of Mutunga's original body--a shameful reminder of how weak Mutunga is in his current form; compared to his old form, anyway.
This is Dark Lord Tarakona, the serpent--the snake--the wyrm. He was once neutralized, and somehow hidden away, by the sixth Hinga Ki Muri. But during the time of the Basilea/Mahanga war, Tarakona was recovered by a demon hunter named Widebrym, who was hired by Mutunga to do so.
Still has a uvula
Thanks for checking out the Dark Lords Tarakona and Mutunga! And thanks if you read all the story-ish stuff; you get a cookie.
Also, Meepinator, I didn't steal the name Tarakona from you :P I made Tarakona a long time ago. You can go look at my Tarakona V1 post for proof :D
