Breaking Benjamin- "I Will Not Bow"
Torin was once a rough-and-tumble plasma matoran living on Xia. He was a long time friend of the Onu-matoran inventor, Ferrum, helping the inventor get what he needed for his creations through force and intimidation. It wasn't uncommon for Ferrum to have to bail him out of jail when one of the matoran he was to intimidate ended up beaten within an inch of their life, usually for no reason at all.
In later years, the draconic Dark Hunter Thel commissioned an all purpose weapon to be built by Ferrum before of his current ended and he returned with his prize for the Shadowed one. And thus, the M12 Peace Maker was born. During the time the weapon was being made, the Plasma matoran and the the Dark Hunter quickly became friends.
After Ferrum went on to earn his fortune on the Isle of Thorns, Torin was left to his own devices, looking for any way to better himself in the eyes of others. When Thel, now a hired gun, came to his shack with a satchel of stolen Toa stones and offering him one in return for joining the Mercenary's team, he saw it as his opportunity to make his own fortune. From there on he was Torin, toa of plasma.
Unfortunately, on one of the missions he was running with Thel, he was captured by the spider like Visorak and mutated into the bestial Hordika. He was rescued by his partner soon after, but had let the animal side run wild before regaining control of himself.
When The Airlord Gringat announced that they were going to colonize new worlds in the flying isle of Korrothis, Torin and the rest of the team tagged along
Present: Torin is heading an assault on the capital of the Hynak Empire with Thel, Zhar, Ferrum, Mezzinus and one other Toa Hordika. The return of Ezru and knowledge of what he did in his climb to power is leading into what may fast become a system-wide war for control of the celestas.
Torin carries a Naginata. He is also armed with a double headed directed energy weapon mounted on to his back and a pair of retractable blades on his left forearm.
Alright and Here's Torin 2.0. I used alot of different techniques, many from Gringat and Yuri.
It took me less than a day to rework him after the first version was posted an all the time in between to get around to posting him. Accursed school always getting in my way.
That thing is AWESOME! The arms are a tad long, but who cares? 5/5 for you! Would you mind checking out some of my stuff? I'd really appreciate it. Here's my self moc if you wanna see him.http://mocpages.com/moc.php/215520
Quoting Gringat the Repugnant
Nice. But... Ferrum is on Sampa Magna? Kewl. And this guy's design is becoming absolutely phenomenal. Us swapping designs between each other has really boosted MOCing skill for both of us! :D
Yup, Our styles mesh on occasion. And yes, he is. I'm surprised you didn't catch this: Thel: "Torin. Gather Ferrum and prepare for the assault. Its time to put our plans in motion."
