Troy is another character carried over from the Legends of the Matoran Universe role-playing game. Much like Sygnus, he has been completely redesigned, utilizing a torso construction unique to him as well as a new symmetrical design.

Once a member of the Ta'maunga Cinders mercenary group, Troy utilized his immense strength and geisteel greatsword to overpower any obstacle. Despite his menacing aspect, he possesses a kind disposition.
He was once loyal to his commander, Sygnus. However, he left the Cinders after forming a relationship with a matoran named Vahn.
Vahn was a member of the Darkwatch- a small religious sect tasked with guardianship of the Void. The Void, a chasm containing a dark, corrupting power, eats away at the soul, and those born into the Darkwatch are raised to keep watch over it from the Precipice. Weary of his duty, Vahn had managed to escape the Precipice for a single night wherein he met Troy. After discreetly returning to the Precipice, Vahn continued to secretly send Troy letters.
Troy eventually left the Cinders to live in Onuwaro, the city bordering the Precipice, to remain close to Vahn. One day, Troy received a farewell letter from Vahn; he had been tainted by the Void and was to be cast into it- a fate which all members of the Darkwatch eventually suffer. Troy swiftly departed to rescue his beloved.
Troy's Ghosteel Greatsword
This greatsword was forged from ghosteel, a rare and incredibly-dense ore. As such, the blade is remarkably heavy and nigh indestructible. Troy's ability to wield this blade with ease is a true testament to his strength.
