'Every now and then there is a Dark Hunter who is almost more trouble than he is worth. Too annoying to retain. Too efficient to kill. A perplexing problem.' The Shadowed One about Primal
"Primal" was one of the most troublesome Dark Hunters.
"Primal" was once part of a tribe whose land was destroyed by the Visorak. He later led a small team of survivors against the spider-like Rahi. "The Shadowed One" later recruited the band and then betrayed them to the Visorak.
"Primal" was a difficult being. He refused all offers of biomechanical implants, until a paralysis device needed to be implanted under his skin. Like "Gatherer", he loved to collect trophies from his hunts. After a short time, he began to refuse missions which did not guarantee good trophies. He also had such a strong sense of justice, it caused him to hunt the Hunters and the clients rather than the prey.
He later left the Matoran Universe and is currently living on Spherus Magna.
In the Toa Empire Alternate Universe, "Primal" is one of three Dark Hunters that are part of a resistance group attempting to eliminate Toa Tuyet. During the battle, "Primal" killed Tahu, but was drowned on dry land by Gali's Water powers.
Abilities and Traits
"Primal" relied mostly on his speed, strength, knowledge, and his spear. He only used his paralysis device as backup. He was active at the time of the Matoran's return to Metru Nui and was one of the only Dark Hunters who acts on his own. As he in the words of the Shadowed One, "objects to the attitudes and behavior of many of the other Hunters and tends to express his displeasure with his spear.' The Shadowed One only tolerated him because he was extremely effective.
