Tethys, Toa of Fresh Water
Tethys, Toa of Fresh Water. This is my Toa entry for the 2 Phase contest at Bionicle: A New Beginning Group.
About this creation
On Aqua Magna, singular elemental powers are a rarity. The blessed champions that reside on the ocean planet have a water primary, for obvious reasons, and a secondary element depending on their location. Those born of water as being both their primary and secondary were considered the purest form and thus the Water Empire was created. This brought forth a type of caste system for the rest of the populace that had a mix of elemental powers, where the Water Empire rules with benevolent order.




Tethys, born in the foamy beds where the element of Air was located, never had much thought of the politics of the world. She'd enjoy her sports, especially her marathons (which basically consisted of swimming the planet's circumference a couple of times). Having a level of power over air gave her a slight advantage in speed over the Water Purebreds, which often made her a target which she would stand her ground and resort to her secondary pastime; Martial Arts.




Tethys wields a naginata which she uses to increase her melee range. Adept at the weapon, she is even able to create typhoons with it, though she rarely uses that technique in populated areas. Being, you know, one of the good guys and not partial to widespread destruction.




On Aqua Magna, everyone has hair. Tethys is blonde.



Her armor is lightweight so Tethys can maintain her speed, while at the same time protect the most important parts of the body.





Naginata strike!





One legged attack stance!





Weaponless pose!




Lastly a shot of Tethys and her pet hexapus, which she lovingly refers to as Puss.

Yet another last minute build. Put together over the last few days to mainly experiment and essentially evolve the Neo-Gori frame to be a more toa sized figure. Tethys is about as tall as Glatorian Gresh (since he's the only one I've left undismantled). Several things I like are the torso and the feet. The feet in particular had been designed almost by accident. It incorporates ankle and toe joints as well as ball roll (foot pivots side to side so that a pose with legs apart still stands flat). The ponytail was also accidental but from another project which i've yet to take pictures of.

I would have added more backstory, but it's getting past 4am and I have work in the morning lol

And yes, I was channeling Zero Suit Samus when I was making this :P

"I give it a Superior rating!" *Sips Tea (pinky out) and Removes Monicle, Top Hat, and Fancy Suit* Very Lovely piece of work! The body design is aweshum, and the hair is a nice and creative touch!

Quoting Gringat the Repugnant Er, don't give out any instructions or anything, but I think I might be able to figure out that body design. It looks perfect for Telzira's newest revamp, which at the moment isn't going so well... anyway, on to the MOC, I am simply, utterly, amazed. Hats off to you, dude.
Haha, go for it man. Link me when the new Telzira's out.
