I had been questioning whether or not to make this guy the Halloween MOC but now I have made Scarecrow the Halloween MOC this guy has dawned a new niche.
Motto: "Always look for the vulnerable spot and the closest exit!"
Xylobone is Dextrix's arch-enemy. He traverses the shadows in his pitch form and can control shadows fir his own purposes. This has made Dextrix slightly paranoid over the years with the single thought that Xylobone could come into existence from any shadow. Xylobone kidnaps random beings and their location will never be discovered and Dextrix has a theory that he is slowly sucking the power and abilities of ever thing he kidnaps.
Xylobone will also attack any and every being he comes across. Just like a shark, Xylobone mock charges his opponent and then sits back and analyzes the foe. He then picks out every weakness and obliterates his targets. He uses his exoskeletal whips to wrench body parts out of their sockets and decapitate his targets. Most have never been able to tell the tale of coming into contact with this creature. And even if one survives an encounter, Xylobone then tracks down the witness and murders without prejudice.
P.S. Dextrix and Xylobone fight frequently, Dextrix is the only one to match Xylobone because of Dextrix's prior training.

Here is a video I made for this character that is on my Youtube channel, you can watch this here or view the same photos down below.
P.S. This guy isn't as cool as he could be....he will be updated, he has a large monstrous version together right now with giant wings and stuff.....He will be uploaded at a time.
He looks pretty good! I like the things sticking off of him, kinda makes him look like Witch Doctor, and it adds to the whole evil look. He looks awfully spindly, however, and although he is skeleton-esque, it looks odd. Other wise, really nice! 4/5
Pretty cool. My only gripe (I do my best to find at least one with every MOC) is anatomical. Digitigrades like Xylobone don't have heels. If you don't understand what I mean, look at my "unfinished business" or google "halo elite" or "digitigrade legs".
