Vain and powerful, Aura's gifts have attracted the attention of unwanted eyes. Thrown from the lap of luxury she is forced to take up arms and flee from the Dark Hunters.
About this creation
Before we get onto Anything, here are some links to the original made by me almost a year ago, and to the BRCII, of which Aura is a leading character.
Borrowed designs are Scott Aldridge's pelvis design, and the design of the BioCore, which Alpha requested both Kriigen and Aura to have. This is a better rendition of how I imagine Aura to look - the blue is brighter, there's much more gold on her, and she's slimmer too: that includes with the chest. I normally hate overlapping chest plates, but I also wanted to give a figure more 'generically hot'. Most other MOCers use that technique to make females, as with the Rashzakea assplate, so I went with it. This once. Also she has loads of custom limbs due to the scarcity of mata-blue parts.
And now onto the MOC:
Note that I also gave her a sword. They don't necessarily crop up in the storyline, but I felt I should add them. Also her mask would be darker because it's old. Why not? XD

(A.R. Rahman - Mausam and Escape)
Aura was originally a Ce-Matoran on Poliaz, who was... well, a bit kinky. She was one of Lord Poliaz's servants - his favourite. She had also had several other matoran after dates with her, Gratigan being one of the few that succeeded and Gringat being one of the many that failed. She was chosen by Lord Reglas to be the Toa of Gold.
She was originally a member of a toa team of three based in the southern islands (in Mata-Nui's anatomy, his left shin) meant to keep an eye on a known entrance to the shadowcaverns. One day a strange horned being, and another with wings arrived and attacked, killing the other two. Aura, however, hid and managed to escape. The beings were dark hunters. They were trying to capture Aura.
The Shadowed One had long anticipated, secretly, the creation of the Toa of Gold. His plan, when he or she manifested, was to capture him/her and force them to use their powers to fund projects for the hunters. Lucky for him, Aura's transmuting abilities, while only affecting metals in s and p block, were involuntary. Any metal she touched would turn to gold if held for long enough.
Aura was on the run for many years, escaping from numerous Dark Hunter encounters, unable to kill them because of the code. Her powers were useful - she could bribe others, as well as her usual tricks of persuasion, coercion and seduction. Her mask was bought from Nuhrii for a considerable amount of energised gold. The teleportation abilities have saved her many times. She also generally coats her hands and feet in lead, or plastic to stop premature transfiguration of metals.
Over time she became bitter, and left the code behind her. Two dark hunters died after she suffocated, stabbed, electrocuted, irradiated or transmuted them. She formulated several plans to kill the Shadowed One, many of which involved killing others to get to him.
She was captured after a joint, chaotic attack from two dark hunters - Kriigen and Veneno. Another toa attampted to defend her from the capture, and failed. She ended up incarcerated in a dark hunter base, and used her mask to escape the stasis tank she was in.
Lord Reglas had himself formulated a plan to get Aura back to safety, and remove her powers. This was after Brogas' disappearance, and he was anxious not to lose another. Harleci, the new Toa of Carbon, was dispatched to aid her. He succeeded, taking Aura to his home island after her cataclysmic escape. She was unconscious, another dark hunter was dead, and a strange artefact had integrated with her heartlight.
Unfortunately, this is as far as she is in the storyline. We have yet to write the next bit ^^.
A shot with the other elemental toa I currently have built. Brolas was a surprise; I was sure I had scrapped him. Anyway, he's dead now. I needed his bits for my current MOC projects ^^
C&C is welcome. Thanks me ep for making the BRCII, and Scott for that pelvis design. I'd been tinkering for AGES to try and find a design that worked! ^^
Nice, by the way, for me it's CHristmas break now, so is it yours? So you can go rp more? By the way, the "other toa" was kryote... rite? And your welcome for me killing that hunter.... but now i have a feeling Aura is gonna become something over time....

This MOC is great. I love the design, the song and the backstory. I'm anxious to know what happens next! One complaint though. (UGGGH)I don't really like the orange-gold knights kingdom parts... :)
Ah well. Sucks to be you, because I love KK parts ^^
What a sweet piece of bling she be! Great background story although I'd love to hear more about her "kinky" side but of course in an appropriate "wink, wink" manner for all audiences. I need to try and build some more of these characters but my knowledge of the storyline is utterly lacking in nearly every detail.
Very nice job on her dude!. Although I suggest making some more feminine poses. I actually first thought she was a guy lol. Maybe crossing her legs while she appears to stand could help :/. Still very nice job ^.^
