Vezon

Vezon was the unwilling Piraka guardian of the Kanohi Ignika. He was created when Hakann accidentally fired the Spear of Fusion at Vezok in reverse mode, splitting Vezok into two beings: Vezok and Vezon. Vezon's name was the Matoran word for "double." Vezon was gifted by the Ignika with two powers: a limited ability to see into the future, and the ability to absorb kinetic energy so that any blow struck against him made him stronger. He was also granted immortality as long as he possessed the mask. Vezon lost all of these powers when the mask was taken from him.[1]

Notes

There was a mysterious seventh Piraka named Vezon.[2]

Cursed by the power of the Mask of Life and forced to be its guardian, Vezon used his Spear of Fusion and his power to grow stronger with every blow struck to smash his foes. Although quite insane, he was cunning and incredibly dangerous. His monstrous creature, Fenrakk, pitted his incredible strength against the Toa Inika. When Vezon and Fenrakk were defeated, they rose again as Vezon and the Kardas dragon.[3]

Vezon was the Matoran word for "double."[4, 5]

It was not a coincidence that Vezon's name was similar to Vezok's.[6, 7]

Vezon was a Skakdi.[8]

Vezon's origin resulted in his lack of spine.[9]

Vezon was not a clone of Vezok.[10]

Vezok and Vezon's connection was more physical than mental, but it had elements of both.[11]

Vezon wasn't happy being the Ignika's eternal guardian.[12]

The Ignika didn't keep Vezon and Fenrakk alive under normal circumstances, but it would under other circumstances.[13]

The texture of Vezon's face was no different from other Skakdi.[14]

Vezon was never officially a Dark Hunter, only unofficially.[15]

Vezon was temporarily considered a Piraka.[16]

Vezon was unofficially considered a seventh Piraka.[17]

Vezon spoke in a deranged way. Even in grim, serious circumstances where his life hung in the balance, he spoke in a playful manner that seemed detached from reality. On the other hand, he was still cunning; his first instinct when waking up in a cell after being captured by the Order of Mata Nui was to calculate how long it would take to disable the other four occupants and pick the lock of the cell door.[18]

Vezon did not consider himself to be a real Skakdi. Brutaka thought of him as half a Skakdi.[18]

Vezon had Vezok's memories. Vezon wanted to kill Vezok.[18]

Vezon was insane and was self-aware of his own madness. According to Vezon himself, he never really knew if what he was seeing was real, whether it was something he wished was real or dreaded was real.[18]

As of Federation of Fear, Vezon had heard at some point that the other Piraka had been mutated after swimming so that they looked like sea snakes, with just a head and a spine. Vezon did not have a spine like the other Piraka.[18]

Vezon wanted to kill the Piraka. Vezon had a tendency to babble on. Vezon was hopelessly insane.[19]

Vezon apparently had a keen sense of smell. Vezon noted that, whereas most beings had a scent, either pleasant or unpleasant, Rahkshi smelled of cold metal and death.[19]

Vezon's prior mask use with the Ignika helped him to be able to use the Olmak.[20]

Vezon's Olmak was fused to his face.[21]

At the end of the story, although Vezon had not developed total control over the Olmak, he had developed a lot.[22]

Though the Shadowed One hoped he would be loyal to the Dark Hunters, Vezon never had a code name.[23]

Vezon had no control over the Mask of Life when it was on his head because he didn't have the mental discipline for mask powers.[24]

The back of Vezon's head was smooth when not fused to the Ignika.[25]

Connection to Fenrakk

Before he was fused to Fenrakk, Vezon's greatest fear was likely Irnakk, like the other Piraka.[26]

When Vezon was fused to Fenrakk, his armor and organic components were part of Fenrakk's armor and organic components.[27]

Vezon's legs were bonded to Fenrakk.[28]

Vezon and Fenrakk had separate minds, they were not one entity.[29]

Vezon and Fenrakk were fused together physically, they had individual consciousnesses.[30]

Vezon and Fenrakk together were less powerful than Axonn, Brutaka, or Teridax.[31]

Vezon couldn't understand Fenrakk's hisses.[32]

Vezon replied to Fenrakk's hisses like a pet owner might respond to their vocalizations, he didn't truly understand Fenrakk.[33]

Vezon could not use Fenrakk's strength or acidic saliva himself.[34]

Vezon and Fenrakk could live underneath lava.[35]

Vezon and Fenrakk felt nothing when in contact with lava.[36]

Abilities and Traits

Vezon did not have elemental powers.[37]

Vezon didn't have an element.[38]

Vezon on his own was a tough opponent, but he did not have a powerful vision ability like the other Piraka.[39]

Vezon's vision power was a limited ability to see the future.[40]

Vezon's future sight was probably on the timescale of hours.[41]

The Mask of Life controlled when and how Vezon used his future sight.[42]

Vezon's main power was the ability to absorb kinetic energy.[43]

Every blow struck at or by Vezon made him stronger. Fenrakk shared this power with him.[44]

Vezon didn't seem to feel the pain or force from kinetic attacks he absorbed.[45]

Vezon could likely not be killed by any physical blow when he could absorb kinetic attacks. He would absorb the energy and strengthen to the point the blow would not affect him.[46]

When struck, Vezon would absorb the kinetic energy of the blow and as such be strong enough that it wouldn't affect him.[47]

Vezon's kinetic absorption powers were unrelated to Vezok's power absorption.[48]

Every power Axonn had was one Vezon could absorb.[49]

Vezon's cape wasn't fireproof, but it was protected by the Ignika's curse along with the rest of Vezon.[50]

Vezon was homicidal and not in touch with reality in some ways. He was not paranoid at least while he was the Ignika's guardian because everyone truly was out to get him.[51]

Vezon suffered from paranoid schizophrenia.[52, 53]

Vezon was not a genius, but he was sharp. He had an intellectual edge which made it easier for him to trick others and harder for others to trick him.[54]

Vezon hated the Ignika.[55]

Other Information

  • Vezon and Fenrakk was Greg Farshtey's favorite 2006 set[56, 57, 58, 59] and one of his favorite sets overall at that point.[60]
  • Vezon and Fenrakk and Vezon and Kardas were among Greg Farshtey's favorite sets by the end of 2006.[61]
  • Greg Farshtey imagined Vezon's voice as soft and a little high-pitched.[62]
  • Greg Farshtey didn't find writing for Vezon to be much different than writing other characters. He stated the main trick was to make sure Vezon didn't sound like other villains.[63]
  • The shield carried by the Vezon model as part of the Vezon and Kardas combiner was not canon.[64, 65, 66]
  • Greg Farshtey went back and forth on the origin of Vezon's kinetic absorption powers. Given that he shared the power with Fenrakk and none of the other Piraka shared powers with others, he decided to resolve the situation by affirming that the Ignika gave that power to him.[67]
