Ray’d was a young Matoran who lived with a select few of his kind, Matoran of Lightning. It is a great rarity on Aeos to have lightning wielders, but Ray’d was one of a kind, he wielded red tinted lightning. Ray’d was happy in his little village, not only because he had his brothers and sisters, but he had his best friend, an unnamed Matoran of white lightning. They went everywhere together, and they had a bond unlike any other. All of that soon came to an end though. One day, the village was perpetually annihilated by The Corrupted Crown and his Makuta forces. The Corrupted Crown personally led an assault on this village, he did not want any lightning Matoran to defy him, as their power is immense. Ray’d hid from the carnage, safe from The Corrupted Crown’s wrath, but his friend was not. The Corrupted Crown personally gutted the Matoran, right in front of Ray’ds eyes. Ray’d was broken, but a fire lit inside of him. He left his spot of hiding and ran towards The Corrupted Crown. Before the Corrupted Crown could spot the Matoran, Ray’d vanished.
Ray’d awoke in a dimly lit room, with strange symbols plastered in the stone walls. He was approached by a hooded, tall figure. Ray’d tried to fight, but the figure was not bothered by any punches he threw. The figure, after Ray’d had calmed down, took him into a chamber. The chamber was filled with statues of warriors throughout the ages, and at the end stood a one of a kind statue, the only statue of Aeon to ever exist. The figure explained to Ray’d that he has watched his village for some time, and had chosen him to be a new member of his league. Ray’d, in confusion, asked about the league and his involvement. The figure explained that he knew a strong Matoran of lightning would emerge from that special village, and since Ray’d was the last of the village to survive, he was the chosen Matoran. The figure thrusted a sword infront of Ray’d and asked him to join the Knights of Eons. They would fight for justice, truth, and uphold Aeon’s legacy of benevolence through secrecy. Ray’d could finally have his chance to uphold the memory of his fallen brother. He agreed, and trained for years.
In the current time, Ray’d now leads the Knights of Eons as their most powerful member, and arguably, their most powerful leader. He works in shadows to keep Aeon’s secret watch relevant. He must only follow one rule as a leader, he cannot reveal Aeon’s identity as the Creator. The rule is convoluted and not understandable, but he must uphold it. He now works with the Toa Dusk under the guise of being a concerned warrior against the Makuta menace, but in secret, he works with them under the real title of a Knight of Eons.
