About this creation
“I've always been a slave to my emotions- it's the sword I've lived and died by.”
-Sohbec, The Contenders #40

Sohbec:
Sohbec is a Dark Hunter belonging to a species of bipedal canines. In his heyday, Sohbec was considered a very successful Hunter, though he has fallen out of touch in his later years. He carries two knives and a bow-like projectile. Despite being a trained killer, capable of bearing the cruelty that the job requires, Sohbec is capable of sharing affection for those close to him, such as his partner Helda; such kindness is typically marred by his regular bouts of rage, angst or feelings of lust towards Tyranca, a Toa of light.

Little is known of Sohbec’s early life, other that he belonged to an unclassified species of dog-like beings. The planet on which these creatures resided remained undisturbed for a very long time, until an army of Toa, the Order of Mata Nui’s forlorn hope, arrived and begun to explore the planet’s surface. Hostilities fired up between them and the dog-creatures, which finally culminated into war. Sohbec was one of the many young soldiers at the forefront of this battle, though he became very conflicted when he started to fall madly in love with a Toa of Light named Tyranca. Towards the end of the war, Sohbec snuck into the enemy camp and confessed his love to the young Toa. Tyranca on the other hand found him repulsive, and thus attacked him.

Angry and bitter, Sohbec ran away from both factions, staking it out in the planet’s harsh wilderness. It took several years for anyone to find him, and at that point he had developed into a fully-fledged, battle hardened warrior. The one who did find him turned out to be a Dark Hunter, who took Sohbec to Odina, where he was enlisted in the Shadowed One’s entourage. As a hunter, Sohbec enjoyed a career of much success and renown, but this all changed when he migrated to Racta Magna; here his success rate declined rapidly, his attempts to kill a Makuta named Rugaki and a Toa named Cilla both thwarted. He was also employed under the service of a being named Shadonax, a creature whom he detested so much that he ran away as soon as the villain was defeated, not wanting to meet him again.

Sohbec was later hired by a servant of Makuta Reshak, named Dukrina, to take out the Contenders, a group of Toa. It was here that he met Helda, a fellow Hunter. The duo was unable to achieve the mission, as Sohbec became distracted by the arrival of Tyranca, his past love. To add to his misery, Shadonax caught up with the Hunters and hired their services; Sohbec was assigned to break out a rogue Toa named Kunar, imprisoned in the city of Racta Major. Sohbec also enlisted the aid of two other villains, Solorak and Doctor Forgen, before returning to Shadonax. This new group then lured the Contenders down into Racta Minus and engaged in battle with them. Sohbec and Cilla duelled, rekindling the rivalry that had developed between them. However, this fight was cut short by the death of Shadonax, slain by Toa Raxonax, his arch rival.

In the aftermath Sohbec lingered with Helda and Solorak at Shadonax’s lair. Soon enough, they were found by a high-ranking Dark Hunter named Slave Driver, who took command immediately. The hunters were soon hired by a demon named Mordath to track down Dukrina and her Rahkshi, Apothrahk. Needless to say, the Contenders got involved and Sohbec was dispatched to deal with them. Tyranca, now a member of the Toa group, was also there; Sohbec tried to go after her but she temporarily blinded him. While recovering from this, he stumbled across a collective coup against Racta Major dubbed the Platonic Justice. Sohbec convinced his partners and employer to join this movement, so that they could get closer to Dukrina. They did so, and Mordath carried out his goal with her. Soon, the Platonic Justice clashed with the Contenders, and Sohbec participated in this battle. The villains were defeated however, and the Hunters retreated.

One year later, Sohbec witnessed the resurrection of Shadonax; he tried to run from his old master, but was quickly found. Reluctantly, Sohbec helped the faux Toa defeat the Contenders and conquer Racta Major. Shadonax then shared his new fire powers with Sohbec, and they then began to rule the city along with the recently resurrected Makuta, Aroxion and Astrok. Despite this, Sohbec was still unhappy; he attempted to speak to Tyranca, using the allure of freedom to try to win her over to his side; she rejected him once again, inciting his anger, though he could do nothing to punish her. Sohbec would also help defend the city when the Contenders rose to oppose them once again. However, sometime after this battle, Sohbec discovered that Shadonax had harmed Tyranca, something that drove him to great anger; he thus began to plot with Astrok to overthrow Shadonax and Aroxion.

Sohbec is currently retreating from a battle against the Champions of day, a new force that has been assembled to liberate Racta Major.


Here we go! As of now, I won't explain the significance of this upgrade; why he has trans-orange now, what the 'Shadebringer' title means etc. Most of that shall be answered within the pages of Contenders, and to give them away now would pertain to spoilers.

The back. Doesn't this just tell you so much about the design?

-oh, why'd you have to ruin my fun, past Wertman? Oh well; back armour isn't too impressive, neither does it need to be; I just added that extra bit of armour to puff out the cape a bit.

His new sword! If the design looks familiar, then that's because I've used this before, on my Okoto RPG version of Raxonax: I scrapped that ages ago, but I liked the sword design so much I used it twice!











Height comparison with Lava Beast!

Sohbec facing up against the two women in his life; Toa Cilla, his nemesis, and Toa Tyranca, his unkindled love.

With the people who've employed him during the Contenders; Dukrina in Book 1 and Mordath in Book 2! I would include Shadonax here, but... he ded.

Sohbec and Helda, best buddies!

All my Dark Hunters in one place! Sohbec, Helda, Solorak, Slave Driver, Catcher!

That's all, folks! Gotta run!


Oh, and happy new year!

Thanks Joshua! Ah, I wouldn't hold too much hope out for him finding redemption any time soon. Hmm- sounds interesting, but I've already got my own plans for the story. Thanks anyway though!

Quoting Blizzard - Very nice! He looks great! Personally, I think his neck is too thin (easily fixed with a tire, but I get the feeling you might be out of them), but I see why you used that specific limb piece, since anything longer would be too long and anything shorter would be too short. Also, he looks just a tad bit bland, especially when compared to some of his past versions. Would it be possible to add a couple of those long white tail pieces (those which were used on his bow/thornax launcher in the version before this one) to the shoulders? Maybe some claw pieces to the legs and arms? Regardless, this moc is excellent!
Thanks Blizzard! Hmm, I've never actually used a tire piece on a CCBS bone before; I may have to try it. Yeah, I was going for less of a hunter look this time around, and instead give him this knight aesthetic to denote his improving status (this'll be shown in Contenders); that's the reason he doesn't have as many spikes this time around and a sword instead of his bow. But yeah, I guess I could have added something to improve his silhouette. Thanks again Blizzard!
