Shadonax the Shadebringer
It is time... he's BACK! Those of you who've read Contenders #35, of course, have seen a snippet of this MOC already. However, I think it's time we take a good and proper look at Shadonax's new form, in all its glory!
About this creation
"The last was you, Shadonax- the Super Ego, the conscience, the ‘Above I’- the deliverer of the mind’s inner morality-”
-The Jankori, The Contenders #38

Shadonax:
Shadonax was a personified fragment of Toa Raxonax’s mind, the embodiment of his Super Ego; as such, he served as an antagonistic force, constantly highlighting Raxonax’s flaws by bringing out the worst in him. Though he often wore a confidently playful façade, his uncertainty begat bitterness within him, which he often projected onto his Raxonax. Shadonax started off as a low-level nuisance, though ended up as a serious threat upon becoming a Shadebringer, only resolved once he was finally reunited with the rest of Raxonax’s mind.


Shadonax’s power of the Gate. (Contenders #48)

It all began when the Ba-Matoran Raxonax was experimented on by a being named the Jankori; his mind prodded to excess, the villager’s psyche was split into three parts, of which the sinister Shadonax was one. He immediately escaped and began to wreak havoc along with the Dark Hunter Sohbec and Makuta Astrok. It would take a few years before Toa Raxonax finally came after him; a fierce battle ensued and Shadonax was defeated, only to escape at the last moment. Shadonax would appear with his assistants several times, only to be chased back into hiding on every occasion; Raxonax remained ignorant of who this villain was, soon dismissing him as nothing more than a nuisance. After a point, Shadonax seemingly vanished altogether.


The separation. (Contenders #38)

Three years passed, without even a sighting of the Faux-Toa. It was only when Raxonax formed a team named the Contenders that Shadonax finally came out of hiding; he was roused by a psychic spark between the two, which he spent the following weeks exploiting. He haunted Raxonax with psychotic visions, drawing him to the brink of insanity; finally, with the help of Turaga Galika, the Toa expanded the psychic link and spoke to Shadonax. After a long and vivacious debate, the two finally agreed to meet for a fight to the death. Weeks passed, and the Contenders met with Shadonax, who himself had assembled a team, and did battle. Shadonax was killed in the fight, decapitated by Raxonax when he attempted to suffocate the Toa of Gravity’s closest friend, Toa Galia.


Shadonax’s mind games. (Contenders #12)

Shadonax was eventually resurrected as a fragment of the Gate, a mystical portal to the afterlife that was destroyed; as a fragment, he gained the power of resurrection, which he used irresponsibly. He resurrected the Tyrant Aroxion, along with Makuta Astrok, who joined the side of her former partner Sohbec. These four became the Shadebringers, and together they defeated the Contenders and enslaved their city, Racta Major. Shadonax had killed his old foe, but to his horror realised that he had fallen ill on account of Raxonax’s death. It was here that he met with the Jankori, and learned of his symbiotic relationship with Raxonax. Thus in order live, Shadonax resurrected the Toa and, after taunting him, threw him into a cell with the other Contenders.


Ruling Racta Major. (Contenders #37)

This proved to be a mistake, as the Contenders quickly broke out of their cells and attempted to liberate the city. Shadonax quickly defeated them, slaying all of Raxonax’s allies and then resurrecting them, proving that his power was absolute. However, Shadonax would soon fall into a crisis, realising that he would have to eventually reunite with Raxonax and the other third, Idonax. This stress only accentuated when Raxonax escaped from his cell, and culminated when the tyrannical Aroxion usurped his position as the leader of the Shadebringers. This caused Shadonax to collude with Astrok and Sohbec, planning to slay Aroxion, though the plan was halted when Raxonax returned to the city, with an assembled army named the Champions of Day.


Shadonax confronting Raxonax. (Contenders #39)

Aroxion and Shadonax responded to this attack, only to be overwhelmed by the Champions, who proceeded to enter the city. As the Shadebringers collapsed, Shadonax retreated the city, with Raxonax and Idonax snapping at his heels; the three beings met and clashed for one last time, though they all knew that it was pointless, as no victor could actually emerge. The fighting gave way to talking, and Raxonax made a pact with Shadonax; if he would help them defeat Aroxion, then they would leave as allies. Shadonax agreed, though in the end Aroxion defeated them and absorbed them. The trinity merged within Aroxion’s core and a singular being tore its way out of his chest; with the help of the Contenders, Aroxion was slain and their city freed.


Making peace. (Contenders #48)

Though Shadonax the being was no more, his psyche lived on within Raxonax, serving as the Toa’s Super-Ego; the three of them spent the rest of their lives within a singular form, living in harmony right to the end.


Alright! Of course, as is typical for Shadonax, this MOC is very closely modelled after the latest version of Raxonax, though there are some distinct differences, most notably the 'embers' all over his body and the extra bulk created by the Piraka foot on his back and the forearms.

I also took some of the criticism people gave with Raxonax and implemented it into Shadonax's designs, particularly in the legs; I tried to take some bulk away from the shins so that they would look slightly less boxy and give him bigger feet. In correspondence with this, I also applied these updates to Raxonax, which you can see here. Oh yeah, I also gave both MOCs friction-adders, so that the thighs would be longer.

Shadonax's first weapon- a blade formed from fire. This was obtained in the destruction of the Gate by Mordath's hand.

Shadonax's second weapon- a scythe created from the Gate's energy (hence why it is white). A major plot point in Contenders will be that Shadonax somehow inherited the Gate's powers when he escaped from it. But that'll be illustrated in Contenders- I don't need to be rambly with all that convoluted lore stuff... :P









I even kept Shadonax's old throne! Now that's dedication!

Awww well, I love you both!

Raxonax and Shadonax- a rivalry that will shatter mountains!

Shadonax vs Galia.

Two of the Shadebringers, the main villains for Contenders Book 3 have been revealed! The rest remains a mystery... who shall it be...?

Shadonax riding my Carnotaurus MOC... looks like Raxonax and Idonax have quite a fight on their hands!


That's all folks!


I've been sitting on this MOC for about half a year now, and it feels good to finally be able to reveal it! :D

Quoting Toa Whero Sweet! He really does look like Raxnorox (except for color scheme of course), but has an added sinisterness to him. Nice work!
Thanks Whero! Yeah, I tried to follow the Raxonax build as close as I could, but obviously taking liberties in order to make him look imposing. Plus I saw it as an opportunity to improve upon the flaws of Raxonax!

Quoting joshua jacobson wow! wertman looks like this just looks very impressive great job, by the way how goes the bionicle mummy moc and the sobec & tyranca story video i requested? i been wondering on the progress you been making, plus i have a bit of new on the results of lego outpost 31 of john carpenters the thing: seems like i was able to complete some of the rooms of it like the sleeping quarters, the rec-room with the bath-room and bar. yet i still have to work on more of the rooms, i been using the maps of outpost 31 yet you have to know that this is a very hard to work on this creation but soon it will be ready.
Thanks Joshua! Yeah, I've actually started on the video, finally- I've taken the pictures, I just need to edit the animation together and figure out what I'm going to do for sound effects and music. I don't know what you mean about a Mummy MOC though- I don't remember you requesting that, and I don't remember accepting said request. Ah, the Outpost 31 MOC? That sounds awesome man, I can't wait to see it when it's done!

Quoting RaptorTalon ~ Fantastic! he does seem like he could use a small tire on his wrist though, it seems a bit skeletal and exposed.
Thanks Raptor! Yeah, that might be a good idea- I can see if I can find any tires when I get back home.

Impressive! I've got to say, Rax's frame in black and grey with trans orange is quite nice looking! I think we're going to have a very nice conflict here. I'll be... intrigued to see Raxonax's reaction to Shadonax's return. Quite intrigued.

Quoting Wondering Person I know this is blasphemous, but I like this better than Raxonax... also, is Durkina's soul dead?
HERETIC! Haha, kidding :P and yes, Dukrina is unfortunately deceased in her entirety. Though in some respects it is still Dukrina's body that Shadonax is puppeteering... isn't that a nice thought? 3:)
