This is a MOC Makuta of mine named Verahk. This guy is based of of General Grievious from Star Wars. He is a character in my YouTube.com series called The Hydros Chronicles.
About this creation
"Never underestimate your opponent my student. A battle is much like nature. Completly unpredictible. You may be mere moments from victory, only to have it snatched away at the last second."
—Verahk to Icarax
Verahk is a Makuta and a member of the Brotherhood of Makuta.
Verahk was created by Mata Nui alongside the other Makuta. He, like all Makuta, once worked solely on creating new Rahi, specializing in creating fearsome predatory Rahi (one known creation of his was the Shadow Panther). He was assigned the island of Xia when the Makuta were given regions to watch over.
Verahk is also known to work as the BoM's "bounty hunter". Due to his great skills and love of battle, his job is to track down any rouge BoM members and/or servents and slay them.
Verahk was one of the Makuta who sided with Miserix when Teridax took over the Brotherhood. Soon after Miserix was "executed", Teridax ordered Icarax and Gorast to kill those who took Miserix's side. Dispite numerous murder attempts by Icarax and Gorast (the last of these attempts resulted in half of Destral being reduced to rubble), Verahk managed to survive. Impressed by his skills, Teridax decided he would allow the Makuta of Xia to live for the time being.
He has recently recieved a telepathic message from Teridax, instructing him to assist the other Makuta in the Universe Core.
Abilities and Traits:
Verahk is a cold and calculating warrior, a brilliant strategist, and a powerful fighter. He is known as one of the greatest Toa hunters and a collector of the tools of fallen Toa, which he uses in battle with his foes.
Verahk prefers to fight his opponents head-on and fairly. He believes if a being has to resort to cheating then they are to weak and pathetic to win an honorable battle. To him, only fighting with all he has got and winning proves that he was truly better and more powerful than his opponent. However, he only engages opponents he deems worthy, preferring to let Rahkshi, Visorak, and Exo-Toa to do most of the fighting, although he will occasionally fight "unworthy" enemies if the situation demands it
Because of his great skill, Verahk is known to have trained some of the most powerful warriors in the BoM. Such students of his were Icarax, Gorast, and Antroz.
Verahk is very skilled at close combat. He has been known to challange several opponents at once so as to test his abilities. He is also gifted with great knowledge of melee combat (the use of weapons like swords, spears, ect.).
As a Makuta Verahk possesses Shadow powers, shape-shifting abilities, Kraata production, super strength, and the forty-two Kraatapowers. He is also very quick and agile.
Verahk is also the only Makuta who knows how to properly create amd repair Makuta armor (normally, only Artakha and the Nynrah Ghosts possess that knowledge). He gained the knowledge when he absorbed a Nynrah Ghost Matoran into his essence. He, however, has not told his brother and sister Makuta of this, as he believes that bit of information could possibly save his life if his fellow Makuta tried to kill him.
Mask and Tools:
Verahk's mask is the Great Mask of Regeneration, whitch allows him to "heal" any damage done to his protective armor. His weapon of choice is a staff that can focus his powers. He also has two back-up swords he took from some Toa he defeated. He also has sharp claws and talons.
This MOC's design was mostly based off of Star Wars' General Grevious.
