Giant evil villain, leader of a criminal organization of former Dark Hunters.
About this creation
This MOC, originally posted October 2006, is a product of a long-term effort to create Bionicle beings more complex than the standard Toa body. The first offspring of this effort was the model Tarsis, while the most recent is the soon-to-be-posted Iambus (Iceman).
Cyrus is the head of a shadowy criminal organization, in fact a band of former dark hunters, who several decades ago launched an internal assault on the government of the capital city of Raka Nui. The coup was swift and brutal, and also succeeded in splitting the Toa Raka and driving them into exile. Now in charge of the isle and its capital, Cyrus rules with terror and an iron fist. An underground resistance was strong just after the takeover occurred, but is slowly being squashed out of existence by his organization's ceaseless assaults.
Cyrus is massive in frame and augments his already-terrifying appearance with a huge black cloak.
He wears a custom-forged Mask of Deception with the appearance of a Kanohi Miru - the mask enables him to plant ideas in the minds of others with little resistance, which helps to explain the shocking speed of his takeover.
Though he prefers to let underlings do his dirty work, Cyrus's bulk is nothing superficial. He possesses enormous strength and is deceptively agile, and can annhilate most any foe in a duel using a double-bladed sword. Heavy armor covers much of his frame.
Though Cyrus successfully destroyed the alliance between the Toa Raka during the takeover, they continue to survive in the shadows despite his sincerest efforts to eliminate them. However, just recently, a means may have finally been acquired by which to gain this final victory...
