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.
When Xylobone counters an opponent that is small and or/not very "in shape" he morphs into his Titan form, the form which you see here. If need be, he can meld his arms and hands into any weapon the situation calls for. In the case of his Titan Form, he can enlarge his hands into enormous clawed fists, he can manifest swords of varying sizes and sharpness. He also uses his skeletal wings! His shadowed essence manifests webbing across his wings and he is able to attain flight. When he folds his wings up, they revert back to the skeletal form.
P.S. Dextrix and Xylobone fight frequently, Dextrix is the only one to match Xylobone because of Dextrix's prior training.
P.S.S Please ignore the tan-colored technic bits used in his wings.....I had literally no other color and grey would have looked bad...plus the tan does look more boney....
P.S.S.S. Please also ignore the stand under his chest....He is rather heavy and oddly not too stable, sometimes he was in need of that stupid stick stand.....

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.
Wow! That is one of the best Bionicle figures I've ever seen! It looks scary and evil, and all of the details are excellent in my book, especially the ribcage and the wings. I love how he combines aspects of an actual skeleton, General Grievous, traditional Judeo-Christian aspects of a demon, as well as a bit of Slenderman/Lovecraftian aspects too. Well done!
Hey! Nice moc! I like the way you tried to make a ribcage in the torso. I've always wanted to try that. Seems like you beat me to it. I would try to make him completely free standing though. Very nice! Keep it up!
