Yes, Gideon, She's FINALLY POSTED! So you can stop your whingeing! >:) ((WARNING: Autoplaying Song included in this page))
About this creation
Ronin's half sister, Kira also serves as a glatorian and fights in the arena often. With a large mechanical scythe and a bolas net, she's able to easily topple and disarm an opponent before slashing the merry hell out of their life counter.
Kira lives with her brother in Vulcanus, along with her friends Telzira and Rames. She and Telzira are close friends, simply because they can talk to each other about things they don't want the lads to hear, and the only other female glatorian in Vulcanus is the ancient Mira, who is old enough to be Kira's grandmother. She is also friends with the two Vampirik, Fenrir and Surt - although rewally only because the rest of her friends know them. Fenrir and Kira have never really talked.
As a person, Kira is excessively haughty and authoritative around people she doesn't know well, determined not to show weakness. Around friends, however, she shows her soft side, and is extremely supportive when the others are feeling down. Nobody else on the planet is capable of calming Ronin down when he gets into a foul mood.
Concerning the Vampirik, Kira's rather... vivacious looks have captured the heart of the Vampirik Glatorian, Lestrix. Lestrix is a shy, somewhat foolhardy vampirik.
Kira's armour is unique in that it uses a new bluish silver metal alloy in some places. This alloy is a combination of Exsidian and Mata-Nui's Protosteel, and is both strong and able to channel electricity extremely well. The armour also houses a water tank in the back with an armoured hose leading to her scythe, which has a built-in Hydraulic Jet.
Kira, aside from her helmet, commonly wears a veil and a pair of crytal earrings. She usually keeps her hair ((Hair?)) tied back, so that it isn't in the way during a battle.
Just like her brother, Kira is somewhat larger than life. Much stronger than most female glatorian, her shoulders are much wider and her reach just a little bit longer. She still looks like a twig compared to her goliath of a half-brother though.
--Fourth Wall commentary
After long amounts of whining from Gideon, I finally got Kira finished. I think I got that "female figure" you were on about down to a t, don't you? And I hope your sister likes it too.
Although building a self-MOC of someone I've never met really doesn't work that well...
Aside from the obvious details on the torso armour *coughs* Ugh. Sorry... where was I? Ah yes. Aside from the obvious details on the torso armour, I also experimented with the nets that lego released a few years back. The one making up her skirt is from an old divers set. Her bolas, however, isn't lego at all. It's from an Action Man figure I beleive. That's not the only non-purist thing: I also had to bend the top part of the nuva armour to get it to fit without snapping Kira's waist. Now I think about it, I could have just taken those gold bohrok teeth out... oh well.
For her head design, I decided to add pretty much everything. A veil, earrings, a stylish hat, and hair extensions in a nice lustrous red, to match Gideon's sister, apparently. There's also a skirt, a couple of brooches and some nice girly high-heeled boots.
Torso is completely custom, and broader across the shoulders than the standard Kiina design. I've managed to intergrate one of those old Tohunga feet into the design, which makes me quite happy.
Her fighting style is originally based off that of a certain type of Roman Gladiator that fought with a net and trident, and had armour only on the shoulder and net-hand, as well as a helmet. I kept almost true to that, except that in the story, Kira uses a scythe, so I swapped it out. To be honest, I actually like the Scythe's design a lot better.

Excellent use of the net. Actually, also originally wanted to use a net weapon design for my Kiina Omega to make her look like the Fisherman Roman gladiators but scraped it because the rules of the contest did not permit use of non bionicle parts. Aside from the net, I removed some costume jewelry(from my daughter) I had incorporated before the final post. hehe.
