Torok EditTorok is a champion of Chaos, whose armies of change have put him, or at least his minions, at odds with the Vanguard and other heroic factions.
On the mythical island known as Okoto, Quitala was High Priestess and Conjux Endura to the Protector of Earth, Whenua. However her heart grew to love another, the Mask Maker Makuta. Together their relationship grew, but Whenua inevitably found out about the affair.
Though Whenua could not punish the Great Mask Maker, he could punish his Conjux Endura. He sentenced Quitala to the harshest prison the Earth Tribe had available, a dark pit so deep within the planet that no light could ever penetrate it.
Protector Whenua proceded to raise their daughter, Korgot, alone, while Quitala, having lost everything, descended into the pit. Quitala however was with child. The son of the other.
Quitala had her second child within the blinding darkness of the prison, where she raised him with love but also her hatered. Her hatred of the outside world and everyone who abandoned her, even her love. She named the child Torok, and left to him the gift of her hatred.
Torok was raised by his mother in the great pit, within its pitch black darkness, never once seeing his mother's face. Having a child without any medical support left Quitala ill, living most of Torok's childhood on borrowed time.
Determined to teach him how to survive, Quitala lasted long enough by sheer willpower to teach Torok how to live on the surface world. Though she loved Torok very much, Quitala also resented him. He was a reminder of why she was sentenced to die in the dark prison. She taught him one simple truth: the only person you can truly count on is yourself.
Quitala finally died when Torok was fully grow and able to take care of himself.
The Climb Edit
Filled with grieve from his mothers death, Torok begun the journey that he had prepared to take for his entire life. He was to climb out of the prison. And climb he did. He climbed for hours, days even. The prison was miles below the surface and the young Matoran had no perception of time. He had never seen anything in his entire life, but he was strong.
After what seemed like an eternity, Torok finally emerged from the prison. The light of the sun instantly blinded him. Torok then countinued his journey, traverseing the island for an entire year before he could open his eyes.
Life Before The Shattering Edit
Torok made his way towards the Earth city of Onu-Metru, where he met his half-sister Korgot and, now a Turaga, Whenua. The Turaga of Earth regonized Quitala within Torok. Feeling pity for him, Whenua gave him a home.
It was within Onu-Metru that Torok discovered his lifelong passion, Masks. His work with Kanohi Masks caught the eye of the Mask Maker Brothers, Ekimu and Makuta, who made the young Torok their personal assistant.
At the Great Brother's side Torok learned everything there was to know about Kanohi Masks, even opening a museum on the surface of the Earth Region. Torok, however, was an odd one. Having been raised in what was basically a sensory deprivation chamber, Torok had never learned social skills, often invading people's personal space and being generally creepy.
Torok's only real friends were the Mask Makers themselves, Makuta in particular, whom he considered a father figure.
The islanders made the mistake of treasuring Ekimu's Masks more than Makuta's. Though unintentional, this would lead to the Great Collapse. Jealousy and resentment began to grow within Makuta. Torok saw this and tried to apeal to Makuta, but the darkness within Makuta grew to quickly.
Makuta broke Okoto's most sacred law by creating a single mask that contained the power of all six elements. Torok ran to Ekimu, but it was too late. The Mask Of Ultimate Power was already forged by the time Torok arrived with Ekimu. The power of the mask proved too great for Makuta to control, and took control of him, feeding off the darkness within him.
Ekimu fought His brother with Torok as the only witness. Makuta was too powerful, however, and nearly killed his brother. At the last second Ekimu swung his hammer, finally seperating Makuta from the dark mask, and in doing so created an explosion that left Okoto forever scarred.
Makuta and Ekimu where left in comas with Torok nowhere to be found. The bodies of the Mask Makers were picked up by the six Protecters and sealed away for the day they would be reawakened.
Having been caught up in the explosion of the mask makers, Torok was rendered severally injured and left in an undiscovered cave. Constantly fading between consciousness and unconsciousness, Torok begun to hear a voice calling his name. Over the weeks that followed Torok dragged himself toward the voice with notihng but his chin.
Finally he found the source of the voice, an artifact beyond ancient known only as the Nail. The Nail greeted him an old friend would. Accepting the Nail as family, The Nail planted itself into Torok excruciatingly through and replacing his eye.
After twenty four hours of blinding pain the likes of which no one had ever felt, the Nail healed Torok, and crafted him a mask out of stone. Meanwhile in the multiverse every possible version of Torok had combined into one.
Finally able to leave the cave, Torok followed the the Nails instructions to find six beings like him. First, however, Torok stopped at a caravan where he first met Ranigini.
The Scorpion Incident Edit
After returning to the Earth village after so long Torok opened his Muesum, "Toroks House of Wonder", where he kept the six dark beings in the basement which was Toroks true home. The basement was so far underground that, like the pit where he was born, no light could shine there.
Torok then opened a Mask Shop in the Earth Village Market place. He was one of the few beings on the island who could knew how to forge Masks for the villagers so he was always busy. It was then that Torok fashioned his iconic orange Mask based off one of Makutas designs. Torok would also go on excursions to locate great masks hidden across the island. He once found the Great Mask of Earth that would one belong to Onua, but did not take as the Nails knowledge told him what it was meant to do.
One client was willing to pay an obsence amount of money for Torok to retrieve a certain mask from a certain cave in the Stone region. Torok however wasn't as familiar with the Stone region as the Earth region, so he required an escort. He went to the Stone Village where he took to the first Stone villager he saw, the Guard Captain, Carmax. Together the two headed out into the desert, spending the night camping before reaching the cave in the morning.
They reached the cave and were immediately attacked by giant scorpions. Carmax, not knowing what Torok was capable of, fought the scorpions off while believing he was protecting the Mask vendor. Together they fought their way through the cave and into the main chamber. They retrieve the mask and were on their way, not knowing that they were being followed.
Carmax planned to go back to the Stone village to resupply before planning a route to the Ice Village. On the second night they slept on a rocky plateau to stay off of the sand just in case they were followed. In the following morning they woke to find a massive herd of scorpions moving past them directly in the direction of the Stone Village. Knowing the Stone Village would be flattened by the huge numbers of scorpions, Camax decided to run around them order to reach the village first in order to evacuate.
Knowing Carmax would not make it in time, Torok took a risk. He removed his mask an begun us his power to calm the herd, and send them back home. He then turned his power on Carmax, implanting a false memory in his head about how the scorpions were dealt with.
With that dealt with, the two continued their journey to deliver the Mask to the Ice Village.

Some time later the Skull Spiders appeared, just as the Nail told him they would. Torok then begun to execute a secret plan to fulfill Ekimus prophecy just to spite Makuta.

As a child, Torok was very close to his mother, the only other person he ever knew. Her death, as expected, hurt him badly.
When he escaped from the prison, he first met other people in the Onu-Metru. He was awkward and didn't know how to speak with others, invading others personal space and otherwise saying creepy or ominous things. This continued for many years, even as he eased into society. Though he became more comfortable around people. He was often perceived to creepy, slimy even, never stating his true intentions for anything.
Torok often speaks in circles and rhetorical questions. He is friendly, albeit in a creepy way. Upon becoming Unbound, Toroks personality remained the same, except that he became more aggressive and assertive.
Upon reaching his current status, Torok grew to love all things. It broke his heart to think of people being held down by their self imposed strings, so he took to freeing those beings, breaking down order where he could.
Saving others from themselves earned him a following. They revered him as a god, which was not. Torok did not want god hood, he wanted a family. He wanted friends. That is what he got, but they still treated him as a savior instead of an equal.
A Toa named Savari, however, treated him as an equal. Savari quickly became Toroks "favorite". Which is why Savaris betrayal broke his heart so severely, driving him to brand and banish the Toa from his home.
Though he had a Conjunx Endura, still wanted a biological relationship. He looked back at his friend Kaeren, how he had and lost a brother. This drove Torok to create Solorok as an "older" brother to him. The compassion of Torok the only thing separating them.
Toroks compassion and patience is as unlimited as his power. Solorok, fitting his role as an older brother, lacks this compassion and patience.
Torok is also a wish granter. He often offers deals to people as test of their mettle.
Torok also enjoys watching things, seeing how certain people react to certain situations.
Torok often shows a sense of humor, whether it be making sarcastic remarks, or throwing confetti in some ones face.
Torok does not get angry often. Angering him, while difficult, is extremely unhealthy.

True Face Edit
Beneath the mask exists a swirling vortex of black, tentacle like fire that bleeds out of the remnants of the Nail. Without the mask the Nail can be viewed in its entirety, which can turn insane gods sane and vice versa at a single glance.
Although it's extremely rare, Torok has also been known to take on a Titan like "Battle From". This form severs no purpose other than to scare and intimidate his opponents.
