"When I had him in hand and learned from my spies what had happened to him, I convinced him that the others on his team had been jealous. They had allowed him to be trapped and turned into a beast. In his maddened state, he was ready to believe friends were enemies – and I had a new Dark Hunter."
— The Shadowed One, Dark Hunters
|Status||Transformed into a Toa|
|Toa of Earth|
|Status||Mutated into a Toa Hordika|
Savage was once a Toa of Earth who was caught and mutated by the Visorak into a bestial, Toa-Rahi hybrid, much like the Toa Hordika. He later managed to free himself and returned to his comrades, though none of them could recognize him. Shocked by his appearance, they attacked him, believing him to be a monster. His transformation accelerated, and he finally lost control, badly injuring his friends.
The Shadowed One later convinced Savage to become a Dark Hunter, telling him his former teammates had been jealous and had allowed him to be mutated.
Abilities and Traits
Due to his animalistic mutation, Savage frequently gets Rahi-like urges and is seized by madness. When this occurs, he is locked in a specialized cell so as to prevent damage to himself, others, or the building. The damage that Savage does to his containment cell is taken out of his pay.
Savage's Rhotuka can paralyze his opponents, and his tracking abilities are comparable to that of an Energy Hound, being able to track a mote of dust across a desert. His Earth powers are undiminished from his time as a Toa, but he has less mental ability with which to control them.
