Montu
I'm on a rush with these posts! You could say my page was in... Adrenaline Mode? ;D Well anyway, this is Montu; Toa of Plasma and Shadow!
About this creation
“The city of Racta Major is in slumber, with the exception of one sombre figure, wrapped in pensivity.”
-Narrator, The Contenders #4

Montu:
Montu is a Toa of Plasma and Shadow, also a member of the Contenders. He can control Plasma, and due to his mutations, he has limited control over Shadow. He carries a sword and wears the Kakama, the Kanohi Mask of Speed. For the most part Montu is introverted and gentle natured, though among more familiar friends he is quite forward and candid. He is at times cynical and his humour tends to be quite bitter, though he displays the most tender disposition to Toa Cilla, with whom he shares a romantic bond.

What is known of Montu's past is sketchy at best. The first recorded sighting of him was when he was rescued from Makuta Aroxion and a Dark Hunter named Les Tenebres by a Toa named Cilla and a Makuta named Rugaki, with whom he became a family, along with one jokingly called ‘Light Aroxion’. At one point he was infected by an alien parasite called ‘the Leech’; the beast manipulated him and transformed him into a monstrous Rahi. It was only with Cilla's help that Montu was liberated from the Leech's hold, and he was restored to his original self. Les Tenebres returned to kill Montu, but the Toa managed to defeat and kill the Hunter; as a result, he was stripped of his title, but redeemed it by helping to defeat Makuta Aroxion, and stop him from claiming the Spear of Strength, a sacred and powerful artefact.

The four of them lived happily in the ancient city of Nolybas; however, at one point Soldok and Bestox of the Makuta Sombrak entered and engaged in combat with them. The company were defeated: Rugaki was killed, ‘Light Aroxion’ was buried under rock and Montu and Cilla were forced to retreat. They met with Toa Parah and Toa Galika and moved into Racta Major, where they found that ‘Light Aroxion’ was still alive. Montu accompanied several other Toa into Racta Minus, where they obtained an artefact instrumental to defeating the Sombrak. Montu gathered with the rest of the Toa at the gates of Racta Major and battled the Sombrak here. Montu battled Makuta Reshak along with Toa Benu and Toa Raxonax; the group overwhelmed the Makuta and forced him to retreat. After the battle, Montu discovered that ‘Light Aroxion’ had perished. He and Cilla decided to remain in Racta Major, mourning the loss of their friends.

Three years later, Montu and Cilla joined a new Toa team named the Contenders. While part of this group, Montu battled many villains, including Doctor Forgen, Toa Kunar, the IRM and Makuta Reshak, the latter defeating them. Montu soon discovered that Raxonax, in hallucinogenic frenzy, had accidentally injured Cilla during the battle and was enraged. However, Takathorax convinced him to direct his anger at Reshak as they and the other Contenders set off to stop his minions from taking the Gate, a mystical gateway to the afterlife, to resurrect Makuta Aroxion. When this failed, they returned to Racta Major and faced Reshak for a final time. Though Montu himself was defeated, Reshak and company were stopped Takathorax. Montu later helped Raxonax fight his arch nemesis, the mysterious Shadonax. As a result, Montu spent time bonding with Raxonax, and after a vicious argument, he finally managed to forgive his fellow Contender for hurting Cilla.

Sometime later, Montu and Cilla went out on holiday. While out, Edoth of the Destroyer’s Three came to them and asked their help in tracking creatures known as Gostoks. Having fought Edoth before, the two were reluctant to help, but eventually agreed. On the way, they ran into Tyranca, a Toa of Light, who joined them on their travels, and would later join the Contenders. They found and fought the Gostoks, but were chased off by Edoth’s brother, Mordath. They then came across a fellow Contender, Toa Dorru, and a new friend, Sanah Torch. They headed home, fighting a villain named Dread on the way. Later, the reassembled Contenders encountered Dread once again and fought him along with his gang, resulting in the death of one of Sanah Torch’s allies, Jack Lupus. In response, they tracked down the lair of Dread’s gang and ambushed it, eventually defeating them. During this process, the mystical Gate was destroyed; the Contenders had to deal with the side effects of this, facing several beings who fell through residual portals from the island of Okoto.

The Contenders continued to defend Racta Major for over a year, but were finally bested by Shadonax, who returned from death and defeated all of them outside Racta Major. They were locked away in the city’s inner vault and sedated by the resurrected Makuta Astrok. Galia and Montu were forced to do battle with Raxonax for the Shadebringers, the city’s new rulers, but were locked away once again when they showed dissent. It was soon discovered that the spell on them could be broken through physical force, allowing Raxonax to free Montu and the others from their drugged nature. The Contenders then attempted to siege the city from within, only to be killed by the Shadebringers; they were later resurrected and re-incarcerated.

Montu has just returned to the inner complex.


Here he is! Each time I revamp this character, I seem to get better and better at the whole two-halves thing. It's not quite split-down-the-middle Two-Face style yet, but I think you guys get the idea anyway.

The back. Ignore those two pins; I know they're awkward, but they're for holding the weapon.

Speaking of; it's not a super unique design or anything, but it's an upgrade to just the Lewa Phantoka blade, and it looks nice, don't you think?

How it attaches onto the back.



Using both the element of Plasma and Shadow!





Montu vs Apothrahk. I seem to enjoy pairing up Orange characters with Blue characters. The colours just work, I guess :3

Height comparison with the IRM

The happy couple! Or the moping couple, I should say :P

Team Orange!

Raxonax, Cilla, Dorru, Montu. Still not building up anything here...




GOODBUYS! XD

UPDATE 29/12/15:

So I gave him a new weapon, switched out his thigh pieces for slightly longer ones and gave him different feet. Not much of an update, but he looked a little too small compared to his fellow teammates, and I didn't want to do a full-on revamp.

Quoting Pakari Nation99 (G Hayes) Lovely looking! He's like an orange Novan, or maybe Novan's a red Montu? Speaking of, would you be okay if I borrowed the Leech creature for my story, as a nod to yours? A similar parasite infects Novan, causing his half-and-halfness, so I figured that'd be cool. Great job!
Thanks man! Well, considering Montu's first version debuted in 2011 (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/270677), I guess it would be the latter :P Sure you can use the Leech, go ahead!

Quoting Sean /EMMSixteenA4 The arm shaping is really odd. The way the Metru thigh armor sticks out is really distracting. Other than that, he's pretty good.
Thank you! It's a tad tricky to do anything about it, but I'll have a look
