my latest creation,(duh) and my official "out of slump and back into posting" ceremony?
About this creation
Arboris, the legendary lord of the Green. He who was destroyed by his bretheren during that big war between the element lords. He who lives on even after death...
Arboris was created by the great beings ages ago on spherus magna to control the Green. He ruled over his citizens as a benevolent dictator (if such a thing can exist). Then the energized protodermis was found. Amazed by it's power, he and the other element lords made a claim for the stuff.
Of course, whenever something is coveted by more than one person, a conflict ensues. this time, it was especially big. A full-scale war broke out amonst the element lords, and most died. Arboris however, feigned his death and went into hiding.
hold on a sec.
EPIC SHODOW PERSON
I love screwin around with my light. Alright, commence the presentation!
Arboris soon found a large, spherical pod that he tripped on one day in a local canyon. All air types are curious, and Arboris was no exception. He opened the pod, releasing a strange gas.
More screwin around.
He soon found the gas to be quite pleasant, and hey, look! a giant cyan elephaaa... and promptly fell head over heels into the container, which then sealded itself and sped off towards another planet, on far away, and into a surface opening of a massive metal plate.
The pod opened, and Arboris collapsed onto the floor. He saw three strange beings staring up at him, a tall, three legged black and yellow creature, a blue and gold behemoth, and a lithe black-clad female. They called themselves "the Shadowed One", Ancient, and Lariska. They asked Arboris if he would kindly join their group, the Dark hunters. (as they explained, they hunt darkness).
Tricked into thinking that the "toa" were crusaders of evil, Arboris pillaged toa and matoran settlements for years, until he finally found outthat the dark hunters were evil. Who informed him? Toa Likahn, of course.
Likahn equipped him with a copterpack, and a toa stone with the power of air. Arboris then fought for toa Likahn, and later the OoMN for hundreds of years, until the Mata Nui Robot was awoken, inhabited by Teridax, and annihilated all makuta and many other sentinent species as well.
Arboris used his pack to escape the robots' main body and worked his way out, navigating the same tunnels traveled through long ago by the toa Metru trying to find a home for the sleeping Matoran. He got out just as Aqua Magna hit the head of the robot. Recognising his old home, he fled to the wilds of Tesara village, where he lived as a hunter and hermit.
This pic needs a little explanation. When faced with a massive horde of enemies, Arboris can use his copterpack to literaly "blow away" the opposition. By tethering his feet into the ground with roots, he can use the jetpack to push air forward intsead of pull it down.
He eventually was found by the Toa, and brought out as a hero for working so many years for the OoMN. He lives today in great health and old age, educating Matoran and Agori alike, and serving as a guardian of the new Spherus Magna Civilization.
...nothin to write...
Definetly NOT rockin the he-man pose there, Arby.
