Mercenary/Bounty Hunter






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.


Despite his nimbleness, Varan is much taller and larger than other Toa. He is black and eminence, and his Kanohi is black as well. His eyes are blood red, and most of his features are concealed beneath the large, tattered cloak and hood he wears, giving rise to rumors that he is hiding a damaged body. He also wears a special respirator unit that allows him to breathe toxic fumes and heavy smoke without becoming sick.


Varan carries a large spear, and two combat blades that he wears on either hip underneath his cloak. His right wrist sports a sheathing tri-blade attachement, and he stores multiple throwing daggers in pouches in his cloak.

He wears the Kanohi Volitak, which renders him semi invisible and nearly silent.


Along with the powers of his Kanohi, Varan can control the element of gravity. 

Abilities and TraitsEdit

Varan is an expert tracker and trap-designer, as well as a master in many martial arts. He is skilled with a number of weapons, but he prefers those that are sleek, light, and easy to handle. He is extremely stealthy and silent, and can move through foliage without making a sound, all of which result in an extremely dangerous assassin and mercenary. 

Varan is cold and ruthless. He is silent, but vicious. When he does speak, his voice is so commanding that it can silent all other voices around him. He has no emotions and no friends, only allies whom he pays or forces to aid him in his hunts, and the servants of the Master whom willingly help him. He despises almost all other beings.



  • Several unnamed Matoran, Ex-Toa, etc. that aid him when he requests. No known friends.


  • Whoever he is sent to murder is considered an enemy to Varan, but no major enemies play roles in his life.


  • Varan's look and personality is largely based upon the Star Wars characters Boba Fett, Darth Vader, and the IG-100 MagnaGuard.
  • Varan is the second character to be created by BZPower member Jakura, the first being the Toa of Fire, Anhar/Kamatu (who regrettably never recieved his own Wiki Character entry).
  • The MOC currently being designed for Varan is made of pieces in mix-matched colors, as the colors needed are unavailable.
