Ackar

Ackar was the Prime Glatorian of the village of Vulcanus, a former tournament champion, and a Core War veteran. The oldest active Glatorian, he was a little slower in the arena as of story year 2009 but still a fighter worthy of respect. If Ackar had been fighting on a normal schedule, his record likely would have been better, but with the exile of Malum and no Second Glatorian to take his place, Ackar had to fight twice as many matches, and fatigue hurt his performance. Although he was a skilled fighter, Ackar's biggest enemy in recent years was himself. Convinced his age was eroding his skills, he worried about letting Vulcanus down. He also did not want to be one of those Glatorian who kept trying to fight long past the point he should stop. Nonetheless, with Malum's exile and some of the best trainees slain by the bone hunters, he saw himself as having little choice but to keep fighting. Despite this, Ackar remained a great strategist and a brave warrior. While he was close to Tarix and Vastus, Ackar's best friend among the Glatorian was Kiina. She reminded him of himself when he was younger – brash, bold, and always ready for a fight. He did his best to keep her impulsive nature and her hot temper in check, but in battle, there was no one else he wanted fighting beside him. Although he knew her dream was to leave Bara Magna, he hoped that day would never come. Ackar carried a Thornax launcher and a flame sword. His original blade had been stolen some time ago as of story year 2009 but was retrieved for him by Gresh and Strakk in a raid on Roxtus.1

Ackar was the Prime Glatorian of the village of Vulcanus, a former tournament champion, and a Core War veteran. Although he was once one of the top fighters in the Bara Magna arenas, age slowed him down a little, and Vulcanus had considered retiring him. After the exile of Second Glatorian Malum for crimes in the arena and the death of Vulcanus' top trainees at the hands of bone hunters, Ackar was forced to fight even more matches than before.8

Mata Nui thanked Ackar by granting him control over the elemental power of fire. Ackar was grateful for the new ability, but he had not mastered it and kept accidentally starting fires everywhere he went. After the Agori villages were united, Ackar was placed in command of all the Glatorian forces.8

In terms of personality, Ackar was loyal and brave. He could at times be a reluctant warrior. He had seen a lot of death and suffering in his time and despised the waste. However, when the Agori were threatened, he would do whatever he had to in order to protect them from harm.8

Ackar was a veteran of the Core War, having fought in the battle of Iron Canyon, among others. Ackar was the oldest active Glatorian.8
