His theme. Play it while looking at the MOC? I chose the techno version because, weeell, it is a bionicle you're looking at...
"Well,hello there Humans. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Nivorn, Shadowlord of Korrothis.
I was once a Makuta, as was my brother, Balin, and we went by the name of Inferax and Deceptus. We left the brotherhood before it became evil, seeking a different life on a new island - Korrothis. We shunned our Rahi-making ways, looking instead to the manipulation of our powers. Balin was interested in the properties of light, myself: shadow and had retired to the ragged peaks of our island home to study our heritage.
When Mata-Nui came among us, to start off the Elemental Lords, we immediately joined him, and were appointed Shadowlord, and Lightlord respectively. We are the only two original Elemental Lords still living, since others filled dead lords' boots..."
Nivorn is the second-in-command Lord in LOK, working alongside his paladinic brother, Balin. He carries a dire mace in battle, and wears the kanohi Ruru, allowing him to pierce shadow with light, which fascinates him - There cannot be shadow without light, and likewise no light without shadow...
This form is perhaps one he takes on when he wishes to be comfortable. It is a standard Toa size for convenience, and he has wings in order to take shortcuts to other places in Korrothis. The blaster on his shoulder is for self-defense should he need it.
--This MOC is really just a prototype to Nivorn, beforeIstart bringing across a slimmer, more debonair looking version. I wanted to get some of his details set in, like his Dire Mace, colour scheme and mask. He's already started to come into the storyline of LOK, so I hope you come to hate him. He's sort of a sarcastic type, and very VERY gothic, in a dark, cryptic sort of way.
He is also as close as you can become in Bionicle culture to Happily Married. He has shared his life with a Ga-Matoran named Eki since the formation of Gringat's toa team. Eki is now one of his minions, although she resents that title. Perhaps a better word would be "Mistress".
--And yes, he has an articulated torso, and his Mace is made of Zesk feet. I ended up using all my balljoints on it, and I ended up having to make compromised with Epsilon's design to compensate. (Epsilon is the best MOC of mine I made in this wave, so I'm saving him until I've posted everything else before I post him).
