Skip to the end if you don't want to read the whole of Grinagt's story ^^;

"Hello again. Again. Gringat, Airlord of Korrothis. Heh. It has a bit of a rhythm to it, no? Nice to see you again."

"I find it hard to believe I've come all this way. I still remember being a matoran on the Island of Poliaz. The good old days. At least they were good if you don't count the drugs, going bankrupt, the gang wars and the makuta attacks... actually my matoran life was pretty awful in all honesty.

"Nuparu. That was his name. Hell of a toa now, but I still can't really get over the fact that his Vahki robots were chosen over the system I had made to defend Metru Nui... I went bankrupt as he attraced the business I used to have on Metru Nui. After that I went home, ended up as a street peddlar with a basement full of circuits and scrap metal and half-finished second-rate droids...

"And if life was hard then, it didn't help that the only place I could afford was on the poor side of Poliaz. There were constant gang wars, and I hate to admit it, but I did make more profit than I should have by selling weapons to both sides... at least, until the Black Delta gang raided my shop. Stole everything. They were fighting the Red Star gang, so I joined that gang in order to get some payback, made weapons for them, got addicted to drugs... I was in a sorry state when the police found me."



"It had been after a particularly vicious skirmish. The Deltas had won, and I was left for dead with a bullet lodged next to my heartlight when Commander Xalos found me. The city guard healed me, and, after lots of investigations and interrogating and pleading for my life, I ended up joining them! After that my life really turned better! I started working for the island council, making village defenses, and I became close friends with the commander, and his assistant detective Gratigan...

"And Soleku... the love of my life... (or so I thought)

"And then about five years later, a makuta raided our island. Her name was Gorast, and she turned one of our toa, Tolovan, to their side. Three years later a kanohi dragon arrived and killed of our last toa, Lizena.

"Lord Poliaz and his viceroy, Vanembar, launched an ambitious scheme in order to save our island. Along with the brilliant mechanical defenses I had built, he started planning to form a new team of toa! Xalos and I signed up, and so did another friend of ours, Gratigan. Soleku did, too. And then Abarium and Brogas were toa who had heard of the scheme and wanted to join in. Orabmar was a stranger to us, but apparently he ran a sports gear shop in upper Poliaz. Several other matoran who I cannot remember also came to become toa. They died. The toa-making process was painful and dangerous. Only a few of us made it.

"But that was that! We became the island's new guardians, and thwarted evil wherever we went! Hurrah! Our team must have lasted about three thousand years. Or more! ...and then slowly, one by one, we were killed off. Abarium and Gratigan first, crushed to death by a kanohi dragon - the same one that had killed Lizena. Orabmar was shot in the chest by a Vortixx cannon. Brogas fell overboard during a battle at sea with skakdi pirates and we never saw her again. Soleku disappeared during a makuta attack... and then only Xalos and I were left."



"We tried to keep hidden when we were just the two of us. Still helping the matoran and such, but we didn't stay too long.

"The mother of all battles occured. Tren Krom and the elemental lords Maelestrakk and Ekkibarus had been sent do deal with the disturbances he had been making in the elemental weave of the Matoran Universe. They died, but succeeded. Balin the lightlord appeared to us suddenly one night. And the rest, they say, is history.



"I became the airlord. Took maelestrakk's old job. Xalos became the icelord. We had to keep our respective towers running, and control the weave of our respected elements in the world. It's tougher than it sounds! We had minions to help us though. We could make golems, and in order to make all of our jobs easier, I set about a really ambitious project to make the island fly."



"It also turned out that Soleku had become the lady of sonics. She's the one who had suggested Xalos and I fill the vacant positions! I owe everything to her now, and I had thought she was dead for so long... I didn't know whether to kill her or kiss her. I chose the second one.



"As elemental lords, we have makuta powers. The light and shadow lords, Balin and Nivorn, are former makuta, and experts at their powers. They rejigged all of us, letting us shapeshift, use lazers, etcetera. And all that was ON TOP of being almost the most powerful in our given element, just like the Toa Nuva."

"Some wierd stuff did happen though... like the time Reglas, the earthlord, attempted to create a third kanohi Olmak. That was a very strange year, but I met all these guys!



"Shadow, Lurax, Juine, Velken... wierd, alternative universe dudes. Except Juine and moon. They were girls.

"And now Spherus Magna is reformed, we're getting ready. I rigged Korrothis to work as its own biosphere, and now it can fly through space. We're off to colonise new worlds baby! We have a load of glatorian on our team now, too!"


SPOILER ALERT: This "Space-Colonisation" thing ultimately leads to the akonians' (generations of Matoran and Agori interbreeding) worlds in Tempesta Magna. It has a few ramifications if you're in the BRC, but I'm not telling just yet.

So yah. That's Gringat's story for anyone who wants to know, and here's my new SELF MOC for YouTube! :D

New torso design, which I really like. I've also made it my aim for all future MOCs to have places where they can store their weapons, so Gringat's can clip onto his backpack.

I'm still doing requests though, so, if you want to say what you want to see on Gringat #6, just put a comment HERE, and I might possibly get around to it.

Keep MOCing!

Hey Gringat, Xinlo started the drawing, but he needs more details. Could you give things like, where the main village is, scenery, and etc. Just reply via my MOCpage so that I get that e-mail, then I'll give it to him on BZpower. Thanks a lot! :D

Quoting Gringat the Repugnant He's amazing, although there are a couple of problems with the story: One, you need to know that Spheroids are telekinetic. Mutations don't affect their armour, since they actually make it themselves with their powers over matter, or sometimes someone else may make it for them. Mutations to his brain within the sphere though, would be quite nasty. Two, who captured him? It all ties into MAOX and such, so pick someone from that universe? The Corpsers perhaps? ALL THAT ASIDE - methinks you did good on this one. :D He looks aweshum.
Ok. Definitely going to put in the corpsers. They seem to be the type of people to do that.. And I'll change it to Guerea having the blades surgically attached to his back and head and arms, not mutation. The Corpers were experimenting with brain washing and how to control the minds of the spheroids. It all failed, except at making Guerea aggressive. Sound good? Thanks for the comments! :D

I have this gnawing feeling that that backstory is a mix of fiction and reality. But I could be wrong. Permission to post spheroid?

Quoting Harvey Cu ..and yet another amazing self moc. You certainly already have lots of self moc version while I have yet to think of one. hehe. Also, I have to praise you for using a red and green combination. Not really a standard color bionicle combination but you pulled it off successfully.
Yes, well, the whole idea of having these different versions is so that I can come up with a version of him I like. It took me five or so goes, but here we are :D

Quoting AMT Guardian of Earth very great. i have never actually seen any forms of your self moc before(surprising) but i have to say that this one is very magnificent. great job, but in the picture with the alternate universe guys i didnt see moon, so did you just not fit her in there or did you take her apart? also, mind checking ou tsome of my new mocs?
Moon wasn't finished when I took ther pic - although I did include the half-finished MOC in another photo. She hid Juine completely though, so I chose this one.
