Story: Desic spent his youth as a member of the De-Koro Guard, where his instincts and senses saved the village from multiple threats. In his free time, Desic enjoyed hunting Rahi native to the surrounding area. Despite his heightened sense of hearing, he enjoyed using firearms on his hunts. Through this, he developed a higher tolerance to loud noises. He returned to using melee weapons to save the other villager's hearing.
On one hunt, he spotted a Kane-Ra with something gleaming in its mouth. After tracking the beast and killing it, he turned his attention to the object in the beast's mouth. Upon touching the object, power surged into Desic. When he returned to his senses, he realized he had become a Toa. He returned to his village where he was both congratulated and shunned for becoming a Toa since they were believed to create excess noise. He gathered his things and left the village to train. After months of training, Desic learned to silence his actions and even his firearms; he also learned to create his own sonic blasts. He used his newly acquired powers to secretely protect De-Koro.
When Teridax took over the Makuta Universe, Desic quickly freed himself with a sonic blast and set to work freeing others around him. After the Battle, Desic helped free the remaining Toa and Matoran. Then he disappeared into the wilderness and returned to his former role. He continued this occupation until he was contacted by the Council of Toa for his stealth and marksmanship. He carried out many solo stealth missions which captured many criminals and remaining Makuta. Finally, he was assigned to the Toa Ropu.

Jaetaro's Comments: This was a fun build for me, and I finally got to have someone utilize all the guns I have built. I wanted to give him a more stealthy, yet armored frame. I am still unsure why I made a Toa of Sonics an expert with guns, but I think it ended well.
Please give critiques, as they help with future builds. Has anyone seen the usage of helmet visors on Inika armor too? Or am I the first one (which I doubt)? I just want to know.
Thanks for Viewing! Later today I am leaving for SDCC 2014! I will post pictures of the Lego stuff there on my Flickr
Love the Wellrod! Nice use of that piece. I like how you made him adapt to louder sounds. I feel like the wings are a bit overkill, though. And that's the first time I've seen minifig visors on Inika armor. Good thinking, there.
