Raelos, Stonewall . My entry for the 2013 Bio-Cup, and my secondary Self-MOC. . History:
Raelos was a Toa of Lightning created by Artakha. He was involved in many Toa teams, but, unlike most Toa of Lightning, he wasn't very social, and normally never stayed very long.
He was once visting a Ta-Matoran Village when he heard Teridax announcing his hijacking of the Mata Nui robot. Enraged by the takeover, he immediately began to help the Ta-Matoran deal with a troop of Rahkshi Teridax sent to this village to help "oversee" his reign. Raelos manged to defeat the Rahkshi by helping the Ta-Matoran build a catapult, which effectively destoryed the troop. After Teridax's death, Raelos was hailed as a hero by the village, but he only stayed a few more weeks and then began helping the rest of the surviving Toa evacuate the Matoran.
Raelos later joined the newly-reestablished on Spherus Magna Order of Mata Nui, and was granted a heavy armor suit and a Kanohi Hau, Mask of Shielding. Due to the nigh-impenetrable armour he wore, he was given the nickname "Stonewall" He made a few friends there, including Krode and Solorak, members that were later assigned to work on Racta Magna. He still works for the OoMN, and was recently stationed to monitor the neighboring planet of Mata-Robata.
Raelos can be a loner at times, but can work with others when necessary. He only talks to his closest friends, and can be rather blunt in his speech. Raelos also acts with extreme precaution. At heart, he is kind-spirited, just, and courageous.
And now, my signature lighting shots:
I'm really proud of this MOC. The heavy bulk really looks good, and it contrasts with Ciaros, my primary for those who don't know me, really well. He's JUST under the height limit, if the judges need proof I'd be happy to provide it. The legs are my favorite part. I'm also pleased with his backstory, I don't like to have my Selfs too powerful, just a little above average.
Well, I'm quite finished, see ya next post!
