Altered One . I think I shall start building characters that go along with my story, and this one seems like a good place to start. . Well, I found something else that can provide nice natural white light, so I'm trying it out here. Tell me what you think, I would like to see how this one works.
This guy... You really don't want to know where such an idea came for him. I am strangely attached to him though, I'm not sure why. I might want to mention now that this guy is just something to show what the Shadow Beings look like. It is not supposed to be taken as an individual MOC, only showing a general idea of what they look like, (Mainly because they are all different and unique). Anyway, hope you like him.
Now, to try and create a bio for this...
"Altered Ones. A name the Shadow Beings gave themselves. They say the name as though there is still life in those cold empty shells of death... As though they are still themselves... As though they have not fallen to the lies of the enemy. These creatures are nothing more than dead lifeless puppets. They pretend that they are alive, but even they see that is no more then a lie." Esh, talking to a young new entrant to the Garden.
Species: Varied Species, All Dead and Infected With Evil
Element: None, Some Stronger Ones Possess Shadow
Powers: Most Have the Ability To Shadow Walk, Most Can Also Create Shadow Barriers, A Few Can Take the Mind of Other Creatures and Control Them
Home: Southern Black Forest
Bio: After The Changing Shadow Beings came into existence. They are created when The people of the Garden begin to listen to The Voice, an evil essence that possess the mind of others and destroys them.
Becoming a Shadow Being is a slow process, starting with your mind beginning to allow dark thoughts in. From there it is a slow down hill slide to insanity until finally your body cannot take it any longer. Up until that point however the process can be reversed if the being wishes not to become Altered.
Once your body begins to change you have completed the process and it moves quickly from here. Your body becomes disfigured and a putrid smell begins to emanate from you. Half way through your body changing, armor becomes a problem. Most beings that change rip off their armor because it begins to burn at their skin. Once the full change has occurred though armor can be worn again. However it can be hard to get armor to fit on such a disfigured and destroyed body so armor is often found on these creatures in a mismatched fashion.
Another thing that occurs in all of this is that, slowly and painfully, your soul begins to fade and break away from the body. Once the Changing process has finished there is no longer and soul of essence of the original being left. There is but the basic urge to survive and run. This is what makes these creatures so evil. Once The Voice possess their mind, they become as mere puppets, lifeless and dead.
Well now, don't you just feel all warm and fuzzy? No? Hmm, why would that be? Anyway, on to the photos!
Now, like I said, each one of these guys are different and unique. Not all have tails, or a weapon arm. It all depends on what the previous being was. In this case the being was a Toa or Glatorian with one arm replaced with a weapon.
Well, let's try some poses on for size, eh?
Cation, blade is sharper then it looks.
Epic pose! Oh yeah, did anyone notice the Hero Factory Bones wrapped around the upper torso? Well, that is actually his...
Other Arm! This arm is fun because it can switch to both sides! I love that arm lol.
Epic pose! (Kinda XD)
Legs. Sorry about the dark photo...
Torso. Once again, dark...
Insert evil laughter here.
Throwing his arm at you.
Creator's Comments: Well, after I was taking apart Shinuy I was looking at the torso and thought, "Hmm, I could use that for a Shadow being". So this is what happened. I actually enjoyed building him and I am terribly sorry for the very dark photos. Oops, out of time, gotta go.
Bye all! Thanks for viewing!
