The Wheel of Time
A giant stone man Ter'angrel made during the Age of Legends
Tall and imposing, Onyx is made entirely of power wrought stone and Cuendillar. He wears ancient armor that bears the symbol of the ancient Aes Sedai on it. He speak in a low rumble. It is unknown weather he is just a Ter’angrel or has a soul.
Onyx’s story begins in the war of Shadows he was made by a powerful Aes Sedai who had a talent for creating Ter’angrel and San’grel. This Aes Sedai was known as Daedalus Abraham Jokoma, he was the youngest Aes Sedai to earn his third name. Daedalus was involved in such projects as the Choedan Kal, Callandor, and the Way Gates.
Durring one of the Forsaken attacks, Daedalus watched his older brother (a non-channeling soldier in the army of light) die by Baelfire cast by the Forsaken. This put him into a depression, and he worked frantically and in seclusion on his new Ter’angrel. Once he finished it he fabricated his brothers memories implanted them into it and named it “Onyx” after his brother.
Years later after the taint on saidin had Spread Daedalus commanded Onyx to kill him, to keep himself from going mad, and then to shut himself down and eject his core. Much of this story was learned by Elin in flashbacks after touching Onyxs core.
