Riktus was conceived during the first hynak war on Sampa Magna. The Hynaks and the Akonians battled for supremacy, and his mother was in one of the villages that fell to the Hynaks. His father was a Hynak warrior, who kidnapped her.
Omzhare's pistol was an experimental Chronodermic weapon. It used Chronodermis' time-altering properties to cause the area around a bullet to move faster in time than the rest of the world. This wore off after a short while real-time, but completely disrupted internal systems in any living target. Blood and electricity would not be able to flow properly, and this would quickly cause death.
Riktus was born among the tokia of Orgo-Hul, and was mistrusted almost universally because of his bestial nature. His mother died during childbirth, and he was taken in by an Akonian couple, Merryn and Tazzim. The two already had children - Mezzinus, and Harren. Riktus was the youngest, but, being a Zharkin, aged and matured faster than an Akonian.
Omzhare's wrist computer allowed him to scan the area for life-forms, contact his soldiers, scan the area and download and upload masses of data, among other things that most iPhones can do too.
Harren, Mezzinus and Riktus were chosen to become Tokia warriors during the third Hynak War. The scientists in charge kept Riktus after he became a tokia, and subjected him to further treatment and testing, to turn him into a Zenithri (basically a super-Tokia). They reawakened the lycanthropic tendencies that the Hynaks' ancestors had, giving Riktus the ability to turn into a wolf-like creature. He was trained heavily to be able to control his mind, resulting in his cold, calculating demeanour now. If he makes himself angry enough, he can trigger the transformation. More than once, he was described as a "Tactical Genius".
His computer spike allowed him to disable machinery and hack programs. He could insert malicious viruses into software or extract data with ease.
When he was released after three years' work, he became infamous in the eyes of the hynaks, and was given the name Omzhare, "Om" meaning Darkness, and "Zhar" meaning Wolf.
He was trained in stealth tactics, and given stealth-field generators. Operating in the dark most often, "Omzhare" really was one with the darkness. His name inspired fear among the hynaks, and, eventually, the Akonians won the war.
His dagger was in essence a small chainsaw. It could cut through armour quickly, and had dampeners inside it to cut out noise.
Riktus changed his name to Omzhare, so that his past would be hidden. He became a tactical general and was given a spaceship, the Fist of Elisara, under his command. He was in command of part of the Akonian spy network, keeping surveillance of the Hynaks on Sampa Magna, and was en expert in espoinage himself.
Omzhare's downfall began after his home village was attacked by a Khraken hive. He was called in to stop the attack, and did so by dropping a bomb onto the village that was lethal to the small-bodied khraken. Some akonians were hit, but survived and were healed. His aide troops began repairing the area while he and Harren boarded his ship with the population of Orgo-Hul and headed to Milita Magna. On the way, they were forced to stop for supplies on Tempesta Celestis, and the cyclonoids attacked the ship, causing it to crash. Thankfully, few died, and they were rescued by one of Omzhare's subordinates: Captain Callidan. However, Callidan is perhaps more dangerous than Omzhare believes...
His back bore a stealth-field generator, allowing him to turn more or less invisible. It worked by using a chronodermic field to cause light to ignore his prescence. When turned on, Omzhare had to use his visor to switch his field of vision into another spectrum, because the light would ignore his eyes, too.
And that is as far as the story has gotten in the BRC. So far, nobody knows Omzhare's history, and Harren doesn't know that he was once one of her best friends.
Omzhare's torso design is assymetrical, in that the round plates at the front are actually placed one over the other. It's a new technique with technic, that I have never really explored, but the outcome has been amazing.
The Helmet, a design concocted by myself and Gideon Fucci, is kept together at the back by a bit of blu-tak. As I have said on many MOCs with glatorian heads, I will use blu-tak to give their helmets unique appearances - but never on the rest of their bodies.
His hand design is from Cameron G. He warned me that it would stress the technic piece, and it has done. Worth it though. Thankfully I have loads of those - and it lets me actually give Omzhare a wrist computer! :D
The launcher on his shoulder uses an elastic band. Press on the top part and it'll go forward and then fire a zamor ball.
The legs are fully custom, and Omzhare is my second MOC to use the HF foot design I came up with.
Omzhare on YouTube will probably have a lot of TF2 Spy lines. He's based off the Spy, what with the Dagger (Butterfly Knife), pistol (ambassador), stealth-field-generator (watch) and even a computer spike (sapper). I'm kinda happty that all of his weapons fit on his person too, and that he can physically hold the gun instead of it clipping into a hole in his hand. It's quite sturdy.
Annoyingly, BioRockDude has made and posted a MOC in his style which is very similar to Omzhare. I made Om way before he posted Pierre, and it's kinda obvious that he based Pierre off the TF2 spy as well, so, there ya go. Neither of us are being original. Pierre is a pretty cool MOC though. Look him up on YouTube.
I'd also have to say that Omzhare is one of my top 10 favourite characters in the BRC. :)
Very cool! You are one of my favorite MOCers becuase you have such awesome stories! I'm a amatuer writer myself and I really feel inspired by your MOC stories. (P.S. Those feet from Star Skrall make good shoulder armor, I used it like you did on my Toa of Light and Darkness.)
