"Many beings are drawn to the life of a Dark Hunter by the potential for profit and adventure, or simply to escape the life they have been living before. Others, like Gatherer, were pulled into the organization by force and given no choice about remaining."

"Gatherer" is a well-armored Dark Hunter.
Many thousands of years ago, Gatherer was an Onu-Matoran, and a leader amongst Matoran on an island. One day, he got in the way of a Dark Hunter operation, and was captured and taken to their base. The Shadowed One forcefully persuaded him to become a Dark Hunter, and Gatherer joined the ranks of the organization.
More than 75,000 years ago, Gatherer traveled to the Northern Continent with Triglax and Lurker in order to kidnap Toa Varian. Triglax shapeshifted into a Toa, and Gatherer and Lurker pretended to capture him, luring Varian and her companion, Norik, into combat on the Dark Hunters' getaway boat. Gatherer dueled and defeated Norik, and the three sailed back to Odina with the two Toa as captives.[NOGLB]
Shortly before Mata Nui's Reawakening, Gatherer was assigned to obtain information on the Order of Mata Nui, an organization previously unknown to the Dark Hunters, which could have potentially been an enemy.
The Order later disclosed its existence to the Dark Hunters and made an alliance with them. During the ensuing war, Gatherer fought against the Brotherhood of Makuta. Once Teridax took over the universe, Gatherer traveled to Xia, the Hunters' new base of operations. He also took part in the resistance against Teridax organized by the Toa.
Abilities and Traits
As an Onu-Matoran, Gatherer was connected to the element of Earth. Like other Onu-Matoran, he could see very well in the dark, but less well in the light.
Once taken by the Dark Hunters, Gatherer was modified so that he would not need food or sleep, and has a connection to subterranean Rahi, being able to control them. His Rhotuka has the ability to temporarily scramble the mind of the target.
Whenever Gatherer successfully completes a mission, he takes a piece of his enemy's armor and adds it to himself, gradually building himself from a Matoran into what he is today.
Gatherer's armor is incredibly thick, and he carries a wide array of weapons, including a Rhotuka launcher, a blade that can slice through solid Protodermis, another blade that doubles as a shield, and an energy cannon.
- Gatherer was created by Sam Winfield, for the LEGO Magazine Dark Hunter Building Contest, and was given a storyline role and place in the book BIONICLE: Dark Hunters, by Greg Farshtey.
