Dark Hunters: Gatherer

Though you would not know it from the armored colossus he is today, Gatherer began life as a humble Onu-Matoran. After the Toa and Turaga of his native island were killed, he stepped up to lead and advise his village. His career as a premature Turaga went well, until he made the mistake of impeding a Dark Hunter mission in the nearby area. Rather than attempt to negotiate with the Matoran, notoriously stubborn creatures that they are, my operatives instead captured him and shipped him to Odina. Using the threat of his execution as leverage, they were able to keep the village in check and continue their mission.

Of course, we did not return him to his village once the task was completed, for I had seen a greater use for him. I cannot explain what it is that I saw in him; perhaps, for a brief instant, I caught a glimpse of his destiny. In another world, he could have been a Toa and a Turaga… but this is my world. After a lengthy mental treatment, he bent to my will and became one of my Dark Hunters.

Gatherer gets his name from a peculiar habit he developed soon after he began employment here. After every defeated opponent, he collects a piece of armor from his foe as a souvenir. Adding these disparate pieces of armor to his form, he has rebuilt himself into the towering hulk we know today. Somewhere in that mass of metal, underneath a dozen layers of armor, is the body of an Onu-Matoran… but Gatherer has long since outgrown his earlier days.

POWERS: Gatherer retains the enhanced night vision of his kind. Long ago, he subjected himself to one of Catlin’s experiments, and was given control over subterranean Rahi, which he uses judiciously. His favored “pets” are subterranean worms, which make excellent siege machines, beasts of burden, and even steeds. Through his Rhotuka, Gatherer can scramble minds, possibly an echo of the mental trauma I inflicted on him to change his worldview.

STATUS: Active. Gatherer is one of my eldest operatives, and his elaborate set of armor attests to his many accomplishments. I often pair him with Lurker on assignments, as Gatherer’s careful and thoughtful approach excellently complements Lurker’s cunning and sheer brutality. When I, too, desired to add to my collection of trophies, Gatherer was willing and able to help me. I believe the kidnapping of Toa Varian was a bonding experience for the both of us.

I feel like while adjusting anduin prolly fell into the canals at least ONCE in Stormwind. Where the fuck are the rails to keep ppl from falling in???? Why are Stormwind builders so incompetent

he falls into the pit where the park is and Varian orders the park immediately rebuilt so it doesn’t happen again, and everyone is happy

"what if instead of getting crushed by the bell" FUCK OFF I AM UPSET

come hither and let me tell you about how a deaf and blind Anduin would sit Varian down and gently tell him that he couldn’t ever possibly rule in this condition and Varian needs to find a new heir to the Stormwind throne. Imagine

FUCK YOU YOU'RE MAKING ME DO THAT WEIRD LAUGH-CRY THING

Do you think after the first time he meets with Anduin, once he’s alone and out of sight, Varian’s face just crumbles and he grips his face with his hands and starts shaking out of anguish and fury because he’s failed, he’s failed his son and Tiffin so completely because he couldn’t protect Anduin and his son facing this slow, torturous loss and he’s helpless to stop it
