Krikitt is a powerful and experienced Toa of Sound. His defeat of Makuta Forhax and liberation of the Zephry species awarded him one of the highest stations in the Matoran Universe.

Krikitt's home island had a very small matoran population, and as such needed few toa guardians. The main population was a species of rahi called Zephry which were created by Forhax, a lesser member of the Brotherhood of Makuta.
The Zephry and the Matoran did not get along, and much of Krikitt's energy was spent quelling conflicts between the two species - over money, land, family feuds, or just plain racism. When Forhax returned to the island to continue his work, the conflicts ceased. The Zephry became elusive and but for the occasional wanderer or farmer, rarely seen outside Forhax's old buildings.
That was until the Zephry suddenly rebelled. Forhax had granted the Zephry a means to reproduce, but at the same time had forced them to obey his will, to be an army of rahi he would employ against his "friends" in the brotherhood. After this was revealed to them, rebel zephry flooded the countryside, which caused a retaliation from the matoran. Krikitt silenced the crowds with his powers, before rallying a group of able bodied rebels, matoran and the rest of his toa team to take down Forhax once and for all.
Siphoning his sonic powers through his sword, Krikitt broke down the gates to Forhax's fortress. During a pitched fight one on one with the deranged makuta, Krikitt discovered that makuta were weakened by certain high-pitched frequencies of sound. This discovery proved invaluable to other toa in the struggle against the makuta. Krikitt himself was invited to Korrothis after Forhax's defeat, and became one of Gringat's six toa guradians.
Krikitt wears a suit of armour able to absorb kinetic energy, making his movement silent, giving him some resistance to fire, and letting his elemental powers charge much more quickly. His sword, Makutabane, is large, heavy and able to channel Krikitt's sonic powers in powerful bursts. For extra utility, he carries a prototype sonic blaster on his arm which draws from its own power source in the event that his powers fail him.
Now working for Gringat, Krikitt is sent to many different islands when something is amiss with the balance of the elements there, especially if there are makuta involved. Back home on Korrothis, Krikitt continues to tinker and build, a passion he shares with Gringat. As such, Krikitt is one of the chief toa that looks after Korrothis' Great Engines, the six massive machines that allow the island to fly. When a new toa of sonics arises, he assists in training him and helping him master his powers.

Krikitt is the self MOC of fellow Champions Online player and DeviantArt user, Krikitt. He and I have been roleplaying there for a long time now, and it seems appropriate I make Krikitt a part of my "official" storyline as well.
It's also Krikitt's birthday today! Hooray! ^^
By the way, the sonic cannon Krikitt is supposed to carry is still in production. It's a pretty big thing, so I may have to post it as a later MOC.
Thanks to the motif/design of Krikitt's Echo Armour, he uses a grant total of 46 grey technic bushings! If I can get that many likes I'll be a happy man. :)
For some reason I find the dark bley highlights incredibly satisfying. The way the differend shades of silver/grey interact is very cool. Although I do think the studs on his "toes" are out of place, that's just a strange place to call attention to. Maybe light bley instead there? But a fantastic creation indeed.
HOWZAT?! (sorry, couldn't resist :P) I like the look of this guy. Although there is a bit of contrast between the roughness of the upper half of the MOC and the smoothness of the legs, it's still cool.
