|Occupation||Mutran's Lab Assistant (formerly)|
Vican originally lived on an island situated in a lake in the center of the Southern Continent.
Vican willingly became the first Shadow Matoran, volunteering for Mutran's experiment, not caring as to what it was. After the transformation, he acted as a lab assistant to Mutran, who also mutated him into his current form. Vican remained loyal to Mutran in the hope that he would be returned to his former form for serving well.
Vican was working on kicking a failed Rahi experiment out of a window by order when Vamprah entered the hive after the Makuta's first defeat by the Phantoka Toa Nuva. After a negotiation between the four Makuta, Antroz, Chirox, Vamprah, and Mutran was held, Vican was chosen to be the one to fly to Destral and summon Makuta Icarax.
Vican later rode on a half-Matoran and half-Rahi creature and flew to Destral, where he encountered Rahkshi and Visorak. Upon showing the creatures a Tablet of Transit, Vican was allowed into the fortress, where he learned that Icarax had taken over the throne of Makuta Teridax. After a moment of interrogation by the Makuta, Vican stated Antroz's summons, and returned to Karda Nui.
Later, in a battle between the Phantoka Toa Nuva and Makuta, Vican saved Mutran from falling after the Makuta unleashed a powerful blast of Shadow by catching him on the mutated flying Rahi. He then carried out Mutran's orders to retreat to the swamp below.
Eventually, while the Toa and Makuta were fighting to gain entrance to the Codrex, Vican ended up upon a small islet with Mutran who was recreating a Rahi called the Klakk to act as a sentry. Vican inquired as to what the Makuta was creating and was shown the Klakk. It then attacked him with a sonic scream, which broke the mental barrier preventing his Light from regenerating. A Le-Matoran again, Vican was sent after the Klakk which escaped, and he encountered Takanuva and attempted to convince him he had found a cure for the Shadow Matoran. He took Takanuva along with Tanma, Solek, Photok and Radiak to find the Klakk, which cured Radiak. The Matoran then went to find and bring all the Shadow Matoran to be cured.
Abilities and Traits
Vican was an adventerous Matoran, and dreamed of having more in life, not caring about the means by which it happened.
While a Shadow Matoran, Vican could fire bolts of Shadow energy, an ability that was lost when he was transformed back into a Le-Matoran. However, because Vican was not an Av-Matoran, he did not gain any other powers when physically connected to a Makuta. He is larger than a normal Matoran and has the ability to fly due to alterations made by Mutran.
Despite being loyal to his master, Vican was also quite wary of Mutran's insanity, knowing that Mutran could have thrown him into a mutating vat as a joke. Vican also regrets how he looks and had hoped that Mutran would one day cure him.
Vican feels guilty for having willingly helped the Makuta and, as a result, works harder and is more helpful to other Matoran.
Vican has increased agility in the trees, yet is clumsy on flat land. This was negated upon his transformation into a Shadow Matoran, but restored when his Light returned to him.
Vican was released in April 2008 coupled with Mutran as a Wal*Mart-exclusive set. He can be attached onto Mutran's back. The set consists of ninety pieces, twenty-one of which are used to build Vican. Vican's mask features a two-colored blend of lime and black, maintaining the trend of Shadow Matoran wearing dual-colored masks.
