The Shadowed One
- An Offer You Can't Refuse
- Ghostapo: Not only is TSO the leader of the largest criminal organization in the Matoran Universe, he is also an obsessed occultist and apparently after the Nimda, only to attach it into his collection..
- The Don: He was more or less a mafia boss in the official canon already, but he's straight out called "the godfather" a couple of times here.
Purifier/'The Watchmaker'/Toa Ficus
A mutant Dark Hunter with exceptional skills at not staying dead. While he seems obsessed over both Nimda and the Black Hand heart orbs, he poses an unpredictable threat with ominous connections to both Alliance and Black Hand members.
- Arch-Enemy: The definitive one to Killjoy, for murdering the love of his life in cold blood and relentlessly pursuing him throughout the ages.
- Back from the Dead: Twice in the run of the story. Death seems to be just a minor tick in his radar.
- Big Bad: In a manner of speaking, this for the Black Hand plotline.
- Blood Knight
- Canon Character All Along: Not a specific character, but it is later revealed that his toothiness and deep connection with the Arch Krana essentially make him in a way a Bahrag.
- Dead All Along: Times eight.
- Evil Counterpart: To Killjoy.
- Fangs Are Evil: His face look like remnants of a severe toothsplosion.
- Joker Immunity
- Meaningful Name: Like most Dark Hunters, Purifier probably chose his own name. And probably, for a reason.
- More Teeth than the Osmond Family: His head has not much more than lots of teeth.
- Mysterious Mercenary Pursuer: He's been pursuing Killjoy for decades.
- Psycho for Hire
- Was Once a Man: Used to be one of the toa that formed the Black Hand, but several mergings with the Arch-Krana have mutated him into an organic dreary monster.
- We Can Rebuild Him: Over and over again, more like.
