Varan (once known as Duros) is a Toa of Gravity and ex-merc drifter.

Biography Edit


NOTE: Varan's actual history is mostly unknown. The Pre-BZPRPG biography section in italics is how he previously remembered it.

The Ba-Matoran who would one day become the creature feared by all started his life when he woke up lying on the shore of Mata Nui, unaware of who he was or why he was there. He struck out on his own, wanted by none, and took the life of a trader. He raised himself in the swamps of Le-Wahi, but the dangers and pressures of living in that region caused him to become half-insane. Each day was spent trying to stay alive, while searching desperately for the resources he needed.

One day, Varan suffered a mental breakdown after narrowly escaping a Nui-Rama (he hates insects), and spent an entire week inactive. During those days, he went through unimaginable torture in his mind, and was rescued by a being claiming to be his creator. That being called himself  the "Master", and the Matoran pledged to serve the Master's every whim for saving him. When he awoke, he was transformed into a powerful Toa of Gravity, and given a Kanohi Volitak and a name - Varan. He was then convinced by the Master that the island of Mata Nui was full of beings that were vile and corrupt. He gave Varan the names of beings that also served him, and that they would assist him in cleansing the island of all impurities. And so, Varan was transformed into the remorseless killer he is today, bent on destroying whoever his Master demands. He was trained by multiple servants of the Master, who taught him all the skills needed to fulfill his tasks.

Flight from Le-Koro Edit

After murdering a Le-Matoran and stealing a precious Mask of Sensory Aptitude from him, Varan tried to escape Le-Koro, but was hunted down in the jungle. In the fight that followed, Varan battled the Toa of Gravity Zeth. His Kanohi Volitak was destroyed, weakening him enough for capture. Though jailed on Le-Koro for a short time, he managed to escape, and wandered into the Le-Wahi wilderness once again.

Once far from civilization, Varan contacted the Master using a strange, mystical ritual. He was commanded to seek out Kaama, a young Le-Matoran that had a replacement Kanohi for Varan.

Personality and Traits Edit

Psychological Description Edit

Varan was a cold and ruthless killer during his time spent infected, but after regaining his memories and fighting off the Master's control he has since reverted to his original personality. Although always intending for the best, Varan can be selfish and manipulative. He makes great use of the debts owed to him and is skilled at convincing others to join him and his goals. He is a poor leader, unfortunately, and his guilt over the Mangaia Incident has kept him from ever being involved with a team again.

Physical Description Edit

In his infected state, Varan's body was thin and lanky. His armor and Kanohi were rusty and flaking, and his joints were worn down and creaky. His optics were a deep blood red. He concealed his broken body beneath his heavy cloak.

In his normal state, Varan is quite muscular, and his black frame is covered by purple armor plates, which are in turn covered by silver outer-armor. His mask is also silver.

Varan is an expert tracker and trap-designer, as well as a master of combat. He is skilled with a number of weapons, but he prefers his light and trusty Vortixx tri-blade. He is extremely stealthy and silent, and can move through foliage without making a sound.

Powers Edit

Relationships Edit

Allies/Friends Edit

  • Jakura: An old friend of Varan who assists him on occasion

Complicated Edit

  • The Outsiders: While the majority of the team hates him, debts are owed to him, and the honor held by their leader, Zero, ensures that they are repaid (though with an enmity between the two)
  • Zero: An old lover of Varan, Zero now despises Varan, but owes the Toa certain debts from their days together in the Outsiders. Varan returns her hatred, for he left because he saw an evil in her which she herself could not come to grips with.

Enemies Edit

  • The Master: Once his boss, now his archenemy
  • Transient: Ex-teammate and nemesis

Inventory and Possessions Edit

Kanohi Edit

Varan wears the Kanohi Mask of Sensory Aptitude, which gives its user the power to enhance all five of their senses to a high degree. The user's sense of balance is also increased. His previously bore the Kanohi Volitak, the Mask of Stealth, which allows its user to become mostly transparent and completely silent (though they will still cast a shadow).

Weaponry Edit

During his bounty-hunting years, Varan carried two combat blades that he wore on either hip underneath his cloak, as well as a Vortixx tri-blade he carried as a spear. His right wrist sported a sheathing blade attachment, and he stored multiple throwing daggers in pouches in his cloak. Having recently shed his cloak and regained his sanity, Varan abandoned his combat blades and throwing knives and took a Skakdi spear that had once belonged to the ex-Toa, Anhar. He kept his Vortixx tri-blade as well, being a gift from an old friend.
