About this creation
---THE DESERT GHOST---
Age: 23 Years old
Powers: Controlling rocks, and anything similar to rocks.
When Aarde was in his youth, he didn't like to talk to anyone. He only really bothered with close friends. He often messed with sand and rocks. Not really bothered to be with others often, he stayed under ground to avoid social contact. He is thought to be very selfish, and only care for himself.
Unfortunately, as a child, Aarde was verbally abused by his mother, and physically by his father. He didn't let it bother him though, and never told others. If he had bruises or anything similar, he would hide under ground until they healed. This meant he stayed under ground more when he was most injured by his father.
When Aarde became 13 years of age, he acquired a job, and gained his Grand father's Halberd to do the job. He cut rocks into very precise measurements and helped create buildings. He would often use his halberd to even carve in pictures on walls and bricks. This made him really useful in the creation of buildings and other such structures.
By the time Aarde became 16 years of age, he quit his job. He felt it was pointless, and that he was wasting potential. He decided to move away from his abusive parents and find somewhere new to live life. He took his father's cape and cloak to provide protection from harsh environments. Because he wanted to move into the desert.
He left his only friends, and began his venture into the desert. He quickly founded a cave, and made it his new home. He would go out every day, and fight beasts. He did this for target practice with his halberd, and as a means to get food. He often came back to the cave with many beasts as days went on. He became really skilled with using his halberd
Aarde was thought to be dead for a long time. All people knew was that he was in the desert. Thus he gained the title "The Desert Ghost". Aarde didn't know it for a long time, being isolated from the other Entia. He continued to live in the desert unaware of his quickly growing nick name.
By the time Aarde was 23 years old, all chaos had broke loose. A wild entity, known as Ater had attacked his old home, killing countless Entia in his way. Ater killed them with brute force, as well as a plague he had created. He didn't take Aarde into consideration though, because he though Aarde was already dead.
In order to not be founded by Ater, Aarde constantly moved by foot around the desert. It wasn't long until Aarde had explored the whole desert, and had no where else to hide. He had no other place to go, and not even going under ground could save him. He continued on foot, in hopes of avoiding contact with Ater.
One day, he eventually found a group of 6 surviving Entia. He somehow quickly joined them, and formed a team with them. All of them had goals, and Aarde's was to form barriers outside. Aarde only helped them and joined them for his own existence. He didn't care for anyone else's survival but his own.
Until one day, when he was encountered by Ventum and 2 other Entia. The two teams quickly formed, and now go around in hopes of finding Ater. They believe that together, they can find and defeat Ater.
The location of Ventum, as well as the other Entia, is currently unknown. It is believed they are headed for the Planet's Core. Not much else is known of their location.
The Story Board:
So here you have it. Aarde is the beginning of one of my projects. I have a project that shall be going on through 2014. 12 mocs will be made (Aarde is one of them). This project will not have a set schedule, and will be released as mocs are made.
As for the moc itself. I like the color blocking I did, and other subtle details I added. He has what are some of my best looking designs and other things I've done in a bit. What was supposed to be a "warm up" moc, turned into a great one. I really like how well everything flows together, and I LOVE his halberd <3 Also, that tan you see... That's skin. He's not a human by any means, but the mocs will have skin color. Anyway, till next time...
