Ancient Glatorian of the Water Tribe. ((Warning: Autoplaying Song))
About this creation
Mezagus fought in the Core War alongside his granddaughter Kiina for the Lord of Water. After the planet split, he was left stranded on Bara Magna with Kiina, while his wife and the rest of his family was left on Spherus Magna.
Before the war, he was a fisherman. He had his own boat and made a living off the oceans, having to face down the occasional Begraphah. He worked with the sea, not against it. It was a part of him, and so when The Shattering occured, his heart was broken. And it worsened when he couldn't find his beloved Niena anywhere. Kiina, his only family, stayed with him a while, but, after becoming successful in the arena, they saw each other less and less.
Like Kiina, Mezagus took up arms under Certavus to be a glatorian area fighter. He was not successful though. Schilden Served as his Agori Blocker for a short time.
Mezagus fought with a thornax launcher, and a modified version of his old fishing spear, furnished with the teeth of the Lightning Sharks that he'd caught in his youth. They provide a nasty electric shock to anyone struck by them - but, like Vastus' venom, the spark teeth were outlawed in most arenas.
His armour is similar to Kiina's simply because he is family, and the helmet and armour design had been passed on and down through the generations. Kiina isn't the first wearer of that helmet, and she likely won't be the last.
Sadly, with age, Mezagus was never a skilled fighter, and spent most of his time assisting trade caravans across the desert instead. After a while, even this became too much for him.
When the Skrall attacked Tajun, Mezagus barely escaped with his life, were it not for medical assistance from Schilden. Now, after the arrival of Mata-Nui and the Toa Conversion, Mezagus feels great pride for Kiina. he remembers, vaguely, the Toa Heroes of old, and now HIS granddaughter is one of them! It's enough te bring a tear te me eye.
--Fourth Wall Commentary.
You know how I always thought that Kiina's helmet had sideburns? Well, it does! So, I added a beard and Moustache as well. The beard is made from this piece, put upside down. It fits surprisingly well around an Iron Man head, although, as with almost all of my other glatorian MOCs, I used Blu-Tak to customise it. That's the only peice I ever edit though. Facial expressions on MOCs, to me, is crucial - which is why I hate HATE HATE it when people use featureless,upside-down masks.
The body is meant to look crabbed and old, much like I did with Fenrir, only moreso.
This is actually a failed entry to the Bionicle Farewell Contest. It was originally intended to be a Kiina revamp, I got sidetracked, and I ended up making Mezagus. He is, in fact, quite an old character of mine. I just never got around to building him. I'm now working on an Onua revamp.
And the chest is also built to look slightly reminiscent of a life jacket, to fit his sort of sailory self. I've done the same thing on My old Poseidon Contest entry.
And yes, he will probably end up as a BRC character as well.
No more upside down masks from me I have almost finished the revamp of Zhar and his head is mostly technic with some Bionicle tools and a foot no masks. on to the moc I like the look it is some what comical and has an ancient feeling though his age would seem greater if his armor was more washed out.
