On to the story. . Prolouge-------------------------------------------------------------------------------Toa Zatano sat on a large cliff that hung over the matoran/agori camp. As he watched the sun vanish under the horizon of this new world, he reflected on recent events. The last few months had been rough and while Spherus Magna at first glance seemed to be the perfect worriless paradise, he knew better. Many problems had to be solved, all the scum of the M.U. are running free, blood thirsty rahi loose from the archives and matoran and agori are at each other throat. But even though these threats are significant they are not what had Zatano worried. From what he heard, the great beings where on a faction of the planet called "Bota Magna", the Toa of Energy never had a very high opinion of the great beings though he never would say why. Zatano had offered his highly elite team to track down them down, but they where needed to stay behind and keep the villagers in the base camp safe. The over last few days his team had been ran dry, trying constantly to keep the vast span of villagers safe from various threats, including each other. Zatano didnít mind the work, but he couldn't help but wish his Team had went in search of the great beings, now he just had to wait and hope the other Toa were prepared for them. His thoughts were suddenly interrupted by a loud beeping sound. All of his team members had a communication device installed in their mask by Toa Grift, the team's mechanical expert.A member of his team had just sent out a request for assistance. Zatano Sighed. Probably just another feud, he thought to himself. On that note the Toa activated his Miru and set out for the camp...His job was about to get a lot more interesting.
Chapter 1:Destuction-----------Earlier that day: Toa Renedox and Toa Laneus had been assigned patrol duty. They had almost finished their shift when a Le-matoran ran up to them crying for help.
"They destroyed my hut, anÖand they killed my friends!" The matoran stuttered hastily.
ĒWhich way?"Renedox asked. Knowing it was the only question that they had time for.
"East", the matoran replied. At that moment the two Toa raced off, hoping to stop whatever it was before any more harm was done. They passed countless makeshift dwellings as they ran down the cluttered street. Renedox was the first to arrive. The Earth Toa scanned the area, at least a dozen homes had been leveled and ashes were still smoldering in the wreckage. After policing the area there was still no sign of the culprit. A grim look came over his face as he saw the shattered mask of a Le-matoran under what seemed to have been a large hut. "How many casualties?" Laneus asked catching his breath. "At least one, possibly many more". "And the culprits?" "No sign of them. Say, why did you fall so far behind?" Renedox asked. "I got lost; as much as I hate to admit it Iím not very good at navigating."Laneus Replied.
The sun was beginning to set, for hours they had been searching the rubble for survivors as well as any clue as to what happened." So what could have done this
Renedox?" Laneus asked while helping a matoran out of the rubble. Renedox was about to reply when an explosive projectile struck the ground between the Toa. The blast sent them flying in opposite directions. Toa Renedox landed in pile of debris, he struggled to get his senses, he had had been impaled in the side by a metal rod he had fell on. He got to his feet and removed the rod. After the pain slightly subsided he looked in the direction of the blast looking for the source, but the smoke was too thick. He drew his twin swords their hilts and charged blindly through the smoke. He began to see a figure walking towards him. He was about to send a blast of earth at the figure, when a familiar voice interrupted. "Are you okay Renedox?" Toa Laneus asked. "Laneus you just about got buried by an elemental blast, not everyone has a mask of sensory aptitude!" Snapped the Earth Toa. "Sorry Sir." Said the Orange and white Toa as he approached. Now that he could plainly see Laneus he noticed the Toa's chest armor had been badly damaged by the blast and his mechanical arm was hanging loosely at his side, sparking. "Laneus I had no Idea you where hurt so badly!" Renedox said in a regretful tone. "It's fine, we have other problems." Laneus pointed to the east as the smoke began to lift, two beings, one about Toa size, the other was notably larger. "Dark Hunters, Laneus call for backup, my communicator was wrecked in the explosion." Ordered Renedox. "I'm afraid mine was as well." Laneus replied. "That's well enough; youíre in no condition to fight. I need you to go find one of the other Toa, have them send out help signal and then head back here." "But Renedox, what about you?" "I can handle myself, Mata nui knows, Iíve fought worse. Now go kid, thatís an order!" Renedox shouted. Laneus said nothing more and ran for help as he was ordered to. The two beings were approaching, Renedox readied his weapons again, this wasn't going to be easy .But as he said before, he had fought worse.
