Zaariah . . Name: Zaariah
Race: American mutt
Occupation: OoMN Lieutenant
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Zaariah, like any Vortixx male, started his career as a lower class member, working in the factories of Xia to maintain the equipment and machinery, and later as maintenance in the the Xian defense armory, keeping weapons and electronics in working condition. However, he did not stay there long, His status as a male and affinity for technology and weaponry only getting him so far in the female dominated society of Xia.
After leaving the island and purchasing some equipment, he set out to join the Dark Hunters organization. There, he spent decades of intensive training honing his skills to a fine edge, gaining a sarcastic undercurrent to his unusually upbeat and excited attitude. He rose to become an enforcer of the organization, the nightmare of those that refused to pay the Hunters what they owed or that chose to run.
After many long centuries of employment in the Dark Hunters, Zaariah had still managed to stay in contact with his sister and several friends from Xia, who were now scattered through out the Matoran universe. The constant contact gave him more to look forward to than just getting paid, while keeping him from developing the apathetic attitude common in members of the Dark Hunters.
Following the rise and death of Teridax and the reformation of Spherus Magna, Zaariah abandoned the Dark Hunters, seeing no point in staying with the severely weakened organization. After evacuating the Mata nui Robot with the rest of the surviving population, the former Dark Hunter joined the Order of Mata Nui as it began to rebuild and form alliances with the local peoples of Spherus Magna.
As a resident of Spherus Magna, Zaariah lives with his sister and his girlfriend, a Vortixx sculptor. He is friends with and the second in command of the unusually tall Skrall commander, Ronin, as well as several other natives, including the Vorox Heirax.
At current, Zaariah is on the team investigating the Valley of the Maze, seeking a great being artifact of unknown capabilities after the fiasco at the world's northern pole. Zaariah is very displeased with the people he's had to work with for the past few days and only hopes he can make it home in one piece by the end of the mission.
Zaariah is a capable soldier, with the physical and mental training and conditioning of both the Dark Hunters and Order of Mata Nui, giving him the edge over most of either group's members. He prefers the use of close quarters weapons such as his powerful quad barrel Scatter laser, typically using 'Flash-bang' stun and EM grenades to keep enemies from striking him before he closes the distance. He has electrified gauntlets and a rhotuka spinner launcher on his left arm that fires electrical spinners capable of trapping opponents in a web of electricity and each spinner can be guided by later sight. He also carries a compact laser sentry turret with him as a backpack, while a thruster pack allows him to leap greater distances and heights or prevent lethal falls.
Whoooo! I'm 19 as of today, so, here's my new self Moc, Zaariah.
Geeze. I feel old just saying that...
