Moody was one of Tanabrax's puppet leaders.
Before Wu and Garmadon's journey
Sometime after Tanabrax learned how to use the medallion, he encountered Bunch and Moody, two thieves that wanted to be great henchmen. Because of this, he and Bunch willingly let themselves be turned into puppets by Tanabrax, who promised to let the two thieves rule by his side once he conquered Ninjago, but didn't kept it.
Many years later, Bunch and Moody were ordered to kidnap the villagers so Tanabrax could steal their souls and turn them into puppets.
The Lair of Tanabrax (flashback)
While his human form is unclear, Moody's puppet form resembled a small wooden puppet in a form of a man that had red eyes and blue spiky hair that was made out of flax. In addition, he also had a blue bag with a picture of a crying face on it for a shirt.

- Moody and, his partner in crime, Bunch’s names are a parody on the titular characters from the popular British slapstick puppet show, Punch & Judy.
