Aegimo began life as a doctor for a Ba-Koro. Through this, he did not have many friendships with the other villagers, except for other doctors. When not caring for patients, Aegimo would keep to himself most of the time, but often be seen talking to thin air (he actually had a mild connection to the spirit world and could sometimes talk with the dead). He countinued this lifestyle until Makuta's takeover.
Captured inside the Makuta robot, something happened during the Battle for Bara Magna. A blow to the robot had damaged the section where Aegimo was held and gravely injured him. After the battle, when he was on Death's doorstep, he was given a Toa stone in hopes of saving his life. The stone transformed him into a Toa. However, he did not become a Toa of Gravity. Instead, he discovered he had gained minor control over Death, likely due to him being so close to death. He soon realized he had a stronger connection to the dead and could even summon spirits at a cost of his own energies. Thus, he could only use it in times of major need. However, he could not kill a being, because his powers did not allow it and the Code forbade it. He could stall the onset of death for a limited time, but not for himself. He still was in a state of near limbo and often drifted between life and death.
After becoming a Toa, he was trained by the Toa Nuva how to fight. He also was taught strict discipline due to his element being considered taboo. However, he returned to New Ba-Koro and resumed doctor life for a few years. He was drawn away after being drafted into the Council of Toa as chief medic. He served on many key missions and saved countless members. He is currently assigned to a special "super team" that combines high-ranking and special members of the Council.
Raising the dead
Fourth Wall: So I somewhat recently built this guy with the color scheme in mind (dark blue and purple) and the element. While building, I gave him a unique design that was awkward and different due to the element. After finding that no mask was suitable in my mind, I found the opportunity to get a Matatu and commission a mask from Modalt. It came out great! I will look for more opportunities to use their services. His name came from the combination of "Aegislash," the ghost/steel type pokémon from Gen VI, and the first two letters of "morir," the Spanish verb meaning "to die." As for the color scheme (the mixed purples), I like it due to giving it a strange feeling and giving a ghostly feeling to the moc.
I also got this guy to be reviewed by Callan, Cossy, and Gringat on their livestream, so you may recognize him from there. Thanks to them.
