My primary self moc, Makuta Nazo, is an artificial being. He was created in the laboratory of the Makuta (alternate universe) in their attempt to achieve perfection. The Makuta wanted to control the ultimate creation. One that cannot grow old, become sick, or be poisoned. But unfortunately, the final embryonic testing failed, and Nazo was then born. He was trained and raised by the Makuta, who taught him every evil and deceitful thing they knew... but Nazo was not content. In the manner he was created, Nazo skipped a gene the Makuta have... thus he was made pure hearted. Through many long years of meditation, training, and plotting his rise to power, Nazo became aware of a force who swore to stop the Makuta. They were known as Toa. Nazo then aided the Toa, giving them intel, supplies and weapons, to make life for his brothers more difficult. Makuta Nazo eventually stole the Mask of Shadows, and challenged current Makuta leader, Makuta Xzellium, to a fight to the death. Not much is known about that fight in detail, as any witnesses were destroyed in an explosion that completely wiped out the Makuta race, and permanently scared the planet. Permalink
Magmus wasn't any other Ta-matoran. He mined with the Onu-matoran, dated Mato,(at the time, dating was a rare occurance.) He was roommates with Takanuva, (awkward moments happen) and had a collecton of masks. Every once in a while, he would find a mask in the mines. Mato was a Ga-matoran with a robot hand, made by Magmus. After a kohli match, Magmus gave Mato a Copper Mask. Several awesome years, he and a Onu-matoran found Energized Protodermis and Kakui, the Onu, being a jerk, shoved Magmus into it. Magmus came out, mutated, ugly, and then lost his girlfriend. Because of that, he broke Kakui's leg. A week later, Magmus went to Vakama's hut and talked to him. Vakama told Magmus the time when he was a Hordika. Out of sadness, he took a boat to nowhere he knew of. On that island, he became an hunter. Months passed, and Magmus started to feel so much pain on one night. He started melting! His protodermis blood turned into lava! His blood hardened, and became part of the island, but somehow, still alive. His essence traveled through the island's body. But while his spirit was floating, he noticed a large robot suit. He flew to the core, and it was ready for action. He rose, then there was no island. The lava and the fire in his old matoran body were absorbed by the suit. He gained new armor, weapons, and a golden Hau. He grew different powers. He could shrink, fly, burn, and smash. This is the story of Toa Magmus, DemiGod of the Fire and Flames. Permalink
Back during the Core War, Project Fire and Flames was put into action. A giant mech, the size of a large Toa, was rode by Magmy(the time Magmus was a Ta-Matoran). The behemoth had flamethrowers, cannons, and a large sword. It swung its sword like a flyswatter to Kio flies. A missle was shot, Magmy and PFF were the target. The bomb had helium, and PFF had hytrogen*. Like the birth of a star, nuclear fusion happened. Not many survived the explosion. People nearby were absorbed, lava, and a gold Hau. That was the birth of Toa Magmus. The story's not over yet! The Order of Mata Nui started to hone his abilites, train him, and educate him. He learned top secret intel, able to make lava out of nothing, and able to throw a small car with one hand! He learned about comedy, and when he's not fighting, he tells jokes to his teammates.

Quoting Rajskil The Rahkshi
Rajskil was a failed Kraata, who instead of becoming an exosuit he made himself armor around himself, and gave himself personality and vocals. Teridax despised this, and threw him back into protodermis. He turned red and came back without the ability to retract his Kraata, and became a bit stunted with a more Toa-like proportioning. Teridax eventually gave up, because the Rahkshi kept turning more and more unique and he wanted an army that was obviously and identibly made up of Rahkshi, but Rajskil cast the silhouette of a Toa. Rajskil formed a small squad of Rahkshi and they did assassinations and raids for their cause. One day, Toa overwhelmed them. Rajskil was the only one who hesitated to fight, and the only one who surrendered. A blue toa slaid him, but snuffing out his heartlight the Makuta gave him, one of blood red rage. A Matoran named Suplik found him, and placed a new heartlight in him, repared his legs with armor, and gave him new forearms. When he placed the heartlight in, the Rahkshi awoke, the Matoran had bound him allready. All Rajskil could remember was the Toa who had slain him, but he put it aside. A matoran had saved him. Suplik kept Rajskil hidden in his dwelling, and gave him all he needed. Eventually he brought a Turuga over. The Turuga saw that Rajskil was in fact good hearted, but born to the wrong body. The Turuga helped keep the secret. One night, Rajskil awoke to Makuta raiding in the Village, and he picked up two scythes off of Suplik's workbench. He ran outside of the dwelling and rushed into combat. Toa hadn't arrived to this specific village yet, because there were multiple raids that night. Rajskil was taller if not equal in height to most Rahkshi, so he did battle fairly. The Rahkshi fought with anger and hate, but he fought for Suplik, for his revival, and for the Turuga who protected him. With his weapons disarmed by a Rahkshi, he fell to the ground, and the Rahkshi swung his bladed staff upon him. A blue sword blocked the blade, it was the Toa who smote him. He looked rather surprised but he must have talked to the Turuga about him, and he stopped the Rahkshi from killing Rajskil. They fought until sunrise, at which point most of the Rahkshi either fled or were smitten. Rajskil asked the blue toa's name...
The Blue toa said his name and walked away from the village with his squad.
One: It's Turaga.
And Two: What's his/ her name? Permalink
Zeren's character bio is pretty simple. He was an Av-Matoran turned shadow matoran from Karda Nui, but after the reformation of Spherus Magna he became a Toa to protect the newly formed Av-koro. He travels all around the planet and trains under each of the Toa Nuva and becomes a Toa Nuva himself.
As far as the build is concerned. Thats a longer story. I've never been too afraid to change the MOC, especially based on my interests, so he's never the same MOC twice. He was heavily inspired by my first MOC on the pages, a super soldier MOC that I still have. This was right as HF 2.0 came out, and I used some of the yellow pieces from Evo for a really disjointed MOC. Despite all the various upgrades he's always had a soldier look to him, and I've really run with that in the newest version. He takes a lot of inspiration from Samus Aran and the Master Chief. He was a pretty basic MOC until v5, where he got some custom limbs, and bulked up, adopting the accidental body builder look. I've also run with that as someday I hope to be fit, it suits the look of a super soldier, and a Toa Nuva. I'm looking forward to showing you guys the newest version when I've got the photos. I promise it'll be soon! Permalink
