Toa Ignika II
|Toa Ignika II|
Toa Ignika II was one of the original six Toa Yerta and the second Toa of Life. He had many adventures with the team before being the only one killed in the pool of energized protodermis that transformed the rest.
Ignika II had a childlike sense of wonder and curiosity, and could diffuse even the tense situations with his sense of humour. He wore a powerless mask and possessed all of the abilities that Toa Ignika did, though he used them only when necessary.
Ignika II was originally a lone Toa of Iron of a different name who was native to the Southern Continent of the Matoran Universe. One day, he set out by himself to claim the Mask of Life for an unknown reason. The Kanohi Calix he wore gave him an edge in defeating the Ignika's many guardians, and he was successful at the end of his quest to claim the mask. However, upon touching it, the Ignika stared into his soul and decided it did not want him to be its bearer. Because of this, the Ignika sent a ripple of energy through the Toa which destroyed his mind and transformed his body in order to imbue it with huge reserves of Life energy. Although he retained his grey colour scheme for the most part, his upper torso was turned a glowing yellow colour where the energy was held. The reason the Ignika did this to him was so that someone with the mind of an innocent child could travel the world and bring life back to war-torn areas, while the Ignika itself could still remain in its chamber, waiting for its destined wearer to come and claim it. Having forgotten everything but the name of the mask he once searched for, the newly created Toa Ignika (II) left the Chamber of Life and wandered the continent for years.
