Quote: "Dracko...your time has come!"
Personality: He is a fiercely loyal soldier and great leader, he will follow orders just as quickly as he gives them out. He has few vices, but the one he struggles with the most is with his perpetual anger. He has a deep hatred of makuta and anything that follows the same dark path. He hates Malevolence the most for what he did to the WAR TOA, and vows to face him one day and kill him. He is deeply in love with Icona, and therefore, will protect her with his life. He his a good friend, but can be slightly dark whenever the WAR TOA is mentioned and goes into a blind fury whenever Malevolence's name is mentioned. Usually calm and reasonable.
Bio: Rex was only a young matoran of iron, the son of the top protodermis metal worker in his village. He loved his, dad, helping every day with the protodermis in order to make new pieces of equipment for his village. He was also well known in the village for being a fervent runner, racing anyone and everyone he knew, beating even his village’s toa team. One day a team of twelve rahkshi attacked his village. The village’s toa team was hard pressed during this assault and so not all of the rahkshi were occupied with the toa. A rahkshi of fear blasted Rex as he was running into his home. Paralyzed with fear, Rex watched as his father was slaughtered in front of him (his mother had died in child birth). This infuriated Rex, along with seeing others killed by these machines of death, and ignored the unbearable fear in his body and attacked the rahkshi. He used an unfinished fishing spear to impale the creature’s head to the floor. When the toa came to see what had happened they saw Rex grieving to the point of losing his sanity. The toa, after much effort, tore Rex free of the corpse and took him to a toa hospital. The toa that remained noticed the dead Rahkshi and realized that Rex had killed it.
After Rex recovered from the shock, for the most part, Helryx showed up and gave him a toa stone, explaining that he would be assigned to a toa team in charge of guarding the Southern Continent from the Brotherhood of Makuta. When Rex asked why he was given this honor, Helryx simply said, “When a matoran kills a rahkshi with a dull spear, I think becoming a toa is the least we can do.” Rex grew in stature among his fellow toa and the matoran of the Southern Continent, but was haunted by the memories of the Rahkshi attack. After several long years of service with his toa team, he received a message from Helryx stating, “Meet me outside of your village, make sure to pack up you belongings and say goodbye.” Rex, confused, did as the message stated. When he said goodbye to the older matoran, they simply looked confused but accepting at him leaving, while the younger usually cried and hugged him. When he said goodbye to his toa team and told them he was supposed to meet Helryx, they simply hugged him brotherly (the female toa kissed him on the cheek), and wished him good luck. When he saw Helryx she told him to join her on the Order of Mata Nui ship. As they traveled Rex asked where they were going, she only answered with two words, “You’ll see.” When they arrived at their location he saw a giant fortress with training camps all over the place. When he looked at Helryx, she simply smiled. When they got off the ship, Rex was awestruck with what he saw. Toa with an armor style he did not recognized, some using elements he recognized, and other powers he did not know of. Helryx explained, “These are War Toa, the most elite toa in existence, you will not see a greater show of skill and power among the toa class outside of this place.” Rex asked why he was there. Helryx smiled, stating that he was the newest member of the WAR TOA. Rex then asked if everyone here was skilled in a certain element, then why was he there for he already saw a War Toa of iron. Helryx suppressed a laugh, “You should know this already.” Rex then understood as he saw her glance down at his feet. Helryx then shook Rex’s hand stating, “Nice to meet you Rex, War Toa of Speed.”
Rex later went and met with Sole who welcomed him as the newest member of the WAR TOA, and quickly told him to show him his skills. Rex immediately ran around the island as fast as he could, making it back in less than ten seconds. Sole simply smiled and told him to do it again in half the time. Rex, almost questioned this, but did it anyways. When he came back he almost fell from exhaustion due to the exertion. Sole clapped, then said, “Now, fight me.” Rex looked like a deer in headlights, and then immediately became the deer after it kissed those blasted lights. Rex gasped from the hit and tried to get up only to find Sole’s foot on his chest. Rex tried to get up but failed. Sole frowned and said, “I expected better from some one of your caliber.” Rex, hurt by this insult threw Sole off and punched him in mid air, all in one motion. Sole went flying into a wall, creating quite the dent in it. Two War Toa immediately appeared and tried to apprehend Rex, but were halted by Sole. Sole smiled and said, “Now that’s what I wanted.” Rex smiled back and felt much respect for Sole. Rex was then led to the armory where he was given quite the armor upgrade. He was then given two arm blades and a sword, both under the orders of Sole. Rex was then told to train. For several years Rex trained and eventually upgraded his own sword into a shotgun/sword. He also gained access to explosives and began to carry at least one pack of C4 at all times. At the age of twenty-six Rex was given command of the sixth squad. During these years Rex showed a tendency to act vengefully against any rahkshi he could lay his hands on. Sole watched this with growing concern until one day Icona joined the sixth squad. Rex at first failed to notice her, but she was a very loving War Toa and every time Rex tried to kill out of vengeance, she would stop him. Sole one day told Rex if he didn’t bring his anger under control he would have Rex removed from his position. Rex saw the sadness in Sole’s eyes and knew Sole didn’t want to this. Rex took these orders to heart and only killed those he had no choice but to kill. Rex’s respect grew for Sole to the point of a son admiring his father as time went by, and Rex also began developing a tried and true love for Icona. During these times of missions Rex also became best friends with Zend and Ferok. Zend especially, since they would always challenge each other and try to out do each other in different skills. For a long while, Rex’s life was stable, this would change though, and not for the better.
It all happened when Dreadnaught saw the hidden anger in Rex’s heart and saw the potential to control one of the greatest warriors in existence. He sent Malevolence out with his army of Zir and gave him one order, “Leave none alive.” Malevolence used his dark powers to summon a fog to hide his army of Zir. The Zir assault was vicious and unrelenting; the War Toa couldn’t even sleep. Everyone fought as hard as they could, War Matoran and War Toa fighting with equal ferocity. But it was obvious who was winning, the unending numbers of hungry Zir swarmed over the WAR TOA defenses and began picking off the WAR TOA squads one by one. In the end only Rex, Sole, Icona, Zend, Ferok and about a hundred War Matoran remained. Malevolence came forward and told Rex point blankly, “I did this, and you will be joining your friends soon enough.” Rex almost jumped out to get him, but Sole held him down yelling at him, “If you do this you will die!” Rex realizing this stood back up and took up his original position. Right as the Zir were about to finish them off a gate opened up in the WAR TOA’s inner defenses and the army of the Universal Protection Alliance poured through. The Zir retreated as the UPA’s army ripped them to pieces. The remaining War Toa and War Matoran were shocked but thankful for the aid. Vavorkx came forward and told Sole, “The WAR TOA organization is gone, and you know this don’t you?” Sole nodded. “Then come with me.” The group left with the UPA Army. Now Rex is a member of the War Toa unit of the UPA.
