First Toa Team: Toa Ideno by Faybos First Toa Team: Toa Ideno by Faybos
Name: Ideno

Element: Fire

Toa Tool of Choice:  The Power Launcher

Kanohi: Great Kaulsi, Mask of Fast-Travel


Background: As a matoran, Ideno served his bretheren of fire as a sniper for the Ta-Doku Guard. After 100 years of a long campaign he started to feel tense about the disk launcher he used so frequently. Something felt off no matter how many times he readjusted the aim or rebalanced the disks. His affiliation for weapons; particularily Disk Launchers is unmatched and is always visited by his comrades for maintenance and advice. One day his old friend Gyro showed up for a favor along with schematics for a new weapon: A staff that could fire great disks. Ideno accepted without hesitation and immediately got to work with the lanky iron matoran, toiling over the smithery and experimenting with several builds until he reached his goal. There stood a staff far taller than he was; build from the strongest polymers and protosteel he could scavenge from Gyro's work desk and spare parts from his own launcher. Gyro grinned along with the fire matoran, happy about their new invention. Now they just had to test it.

Before Ideno could touch it however there was a blast coming from the outer gates. He stormed toward the gate to find the breach: a small pack of kikanalo were enraged and ramming their powerful horns against the stone walls of the village. Thinking quickly, Ideno ran back to the room and nabbed the newly made Power Launcher, hilting it on the crease of the balcony before taking aim; using his body as a balance to keep the large weapon steady before firing the Shrink disk off at the pack. In a flash the mighty kikanalo were no smaller than hoi turtles, scurrying away when they became aware of their new gigantic surroundings. Ideno breathed a sigh of relief, sitting down to wipe the sweat beading from his forehead. A shadow loomed over him; his eyes meeting green armoured legs and realizing it was Toa Lesovikk who was staring down at him with a proud smile on his face. "That was quite a shot." the toa said. Ideno was utterly speechless. "Perhaps you'll be more spot on with this." he continued before handing the ta matoran sniper a glowing red Toa stone. Ideno had no time to respond as the Toa had already vanished with the wind. He smiled to himself as his eyes were drawn back to his new found weapon; his hands shaking with excitement and heartlight pumping. 

Abilities: Ideno can create and control Fire. He has the unique ability to heat up the molecules in his body to become hot to the touch. His years serving in the Ta Doku guard has sharpened his reflexes and has near pin-point accuracy with his disk launchers. His Great Kaulsi allows Ideno to teleport to whatever is in his field of vision. He could teleport to other places not seen with the help of a kanohi Suletu wearer but is considered too risky and has never been performed.

Personality: Ideno is confident and outgoing. However his years as a Ta Doku Sniper gave him a bad case of paranoia, leaving him a jittery mess whenever the situation is high profile and tries to calm himself down with an old folk song. With the time for action comes forth however he switches to an entirely different persona; a cool-headed tactical strategist who chooses to keep his distance and plan things ahead. While Nikila excels at thinking on her feet, Ideno plans in advance; deducing every situation before acting on any variables his mind projects. He is marvelled at weapons of various shapes and sizes and talks about them often. His confident demeanor earns him respect among his colleagues but paints a target on Lesvikk's back for who the true leader of the Toa Doku should be. The Toa of Fire is a firm believer that Lesovikk can lead the team through thick and thin, forming a brotherly bond with him in his time before serving the guard. He waves away the ones who tell him otherwise and like any proud sniper, has his comrade's backs. His loyalty is as fierce as his inner flame that burns for his people, and if anyone should come between that; they will know the real reason you don't play with fire.

I always like a Toa that knows how to use a Disk Launcher! :D Although it somehow always seems to be the Toa of Fire...

The design looks really nice, meshing together the armor from his guard days with the upgrade that comes with becoming a Toa! I would certainly trust him to care for the Matoran if I were a Turaga, especially with such a valuable background! :)

Same here my friend. It's such an underrated weapon. Must be a coincidence that a certain Toa of Fire would pick up a special launcher 1000 years later. (What do you think the top of the staff is?) ;) (Wink)

Yes! I really wanted to capture that part of him to show he doesn't screw around. It was fun molding real bionicle pieces into the design and attributing my own style into it. Thanks! He's glad to be of service.
