DOUBLE WHAMMY! Actually, this is my character for an RPG that's being started! Just to note; I do love Bionicle RPGs, so if you're starting one up and don't know who to make a part of it, then I'd be very happy to contribute!
About this creation
So this is my character for The Land of Mardon. (Bio RPG), run by Caleb M.. This is essentially a world with five species:
The Fardos (Plant lovers)- This is the faction that I'm a part of.
The Dandos (Security nuts)
The Spans (Spies)
Blarts (Like the Frost Giants from Thor)
Clarfs (Rock people/mountain dwellers)

So, here's my entry:

Fardo Kari:
Kari is the leader of the Fardos, a species of plant lovers living on the planet Mardon. Kari is very old and frail, meaning he is unable to engage in physical combat. He possesses the power of Jungle, which he solely relies on when in battle. He is extraordinarily pensive, liking to spend time in his ostentatious gardens watching the plants, birds and insects. He can also be found in the large Fardo library studying the literature of other civilisations. He is a benevolent ruler, but can turn into a powerful and frightening force to reckon with if he feels challenged.

Little is known about Kariís history, though it is theorised that he did not always have his monstrous form, and was mutated from a more upright, prettier guise to his current appearance. He came to Mardon many years ago and used Makuta science to create the Fardos. They built a castle in the swampy midlands and remained there for many years. During this time, Kari and the leader of the Blarts had a falling out, which resulted in war between the two factions.

Kari is currently in the Fardo Castle on Mardon, going about his usual business.


Overview. Fun Fact: Kari is a Maori term, which translates into English as "Gardener". So there's the justification for the name!

The Back.

Profile. I don't normally do this, but the shaping for this guy mainly went into his profile, so that's why I included it.

His cane. I wanted to give him a tool, as I think it can add a lot of character to a MOC. However, I didn't think a weapon would be entirely appropriate for this guy, considering the nature of the Fardos. So I gave him a cane :D

A closer look at the head, and the foliage and insects which are living on him.

The other sides.



Some feeble attempts at action poses! Yes, this is a very static model, focusing more on the look than the actual poseability and such. I feel that it's okay though, since this is supposed to be an old man.



Comparison with Lewa, Master of Jungle!

Comparison with Dukrina, Toa of Jungle!

With the Jankori. These guys are awfully similar, aren't they. I'm not sure whether the Jankori has anything to do with Kari's history, which is one of the reasons why I left it ambiguous.

Comparison with Gostok Gellesyl.

Here is my RPG Resume! Kunar, on the right there, was built for The Council of Toa RPG, which happened a few years ago. That was pretty awesome, and it gave me Kunar, so I can't complain. Also, Krode was created as a NPC in that roleplay too, so that had a huge impact on my story.

Raxonax got his Okoto Armour when I played him in the Okoto RPG! That had a lot of potential, but the group has just seemed to stop dead in its tracks. I don't know if its going to start up again, but I cynically doubt it.

And I built Kari here for this RPG! I hope this gets off okay, as this is a neat concept.

That's all, folks!

Quoting Gabe Hayes Wow! I love it! Great concept here, I love the idea of a big brute that's actually just a gardener! His cane does do wonders in adding character, as does the head design! Beast looking, but yet docile. Well done!
Thank you sir! :D

Quoting Hunter Chains Awesome man! I love his colour scheme! Really gives off a nice natural look. I also really love the leg design. However, I don't really like how the HF trans green pieces jut out of there. I also think you should but something on those ball joints that are on the back of the legs. Finally, I think the trans blue mask on the lower part of his torso sort of sticks out as there isn't any other trans blue except the spider on him. That's not a very big problem though. Anyway, awesome moc!
Thanks Chains! Yeah, it sticks out a bit, but I wanted to make sure there was some trans green on the shins. Yeah, I can't really stick any armour on the ends there, but I'll see what I can do. I couldn't really find any other masks that would fit there, so I used that one as that shade of trans blue isn't really that different from dark blue...

Quoting JosephC 123 Why does this remind me of a certain Bayformers Character? Maybe its the legs...or the cane? Anyway, Nice job!
Thanks! Wan't entirely the idea of the MOC, but oh well. I know ROTF is kind of infamous, for good reason, but I did like Jetfire; he was definately the best part of that film IMO :P
