Tyrant is the major antagonist in the BIONICLE series. He is a member of the Shadowed One's species, who served as the member of the Dark Hunters though he was betrayed by them when the former was planning to overthrow the Shadowed One and took over the organization.
Tyrant was a member of the Shadowed One's species in his native island, where they lived in peace and harmony until Ancient declared the war, which resulted the species fighting against each other. He participated in the conflict until his newly thirst for power and conquest resulted him in his decision of leaving the island. He later conquered one of the Southern Islands where he ruled through fear, brutality and oppression as he was feared by his subjects for his perchant of performing executions on the prisoners.
Upon hearing the Dark Hunters' existence, Tyrant agreed to join with the Hunters, though he viewed himself as only an ally of the organisation and not the member.
Because Tyrant kept trying to undermine the Shadowed One's rule, he was ordered by the Shadowed One to take the group of other Dark Hunters to face the Toa called Dume.
Tyrant was known of being ruthless, sadistic and cruel as he have the hobby of performing brutal executions on his prisoners, thus making him feared by his subjects.
While not being an official member of the Dark Hunters, Tyrant served as their ally though in reality, he was planning to overthrow the Shadowed One and take over the Hunters, making him ambitious and power-hungry.
He is also very arrogant, especially when fighting against Toa Dume as he told him that his fire element did not take him down since he have the ability to absorb heat.
