Callan, Firelord
Callan, self-MOC of Caleb Lang. Firelord of Bazhrygan! At least, for a little bit.
About this creation
This is my version of Callan, as firelord, at toa size as both second prize in the contest and as a character in my storyline (even if he's not firelord for long). In him, I took elements of Callan's original design and combined them with armour befitting a weavic lord - notably the torchstaff, cloak and weavic symbol ingrained into his breastplate. The arrow moves according to time of year. The area at the bottom of the cycle denotes the Ice arc (midwinter), when he has no power, and the top fire (midsummer), when he is most prominent. The arrow is currently pointing to the beginnning of the Air arc (March).
As well as weavic elements, I also tried to make him look a bit glatorianny since he is on Spherus Magna and their styles would intermingle. He uses a vahki torso in there like the original, but in a body design of my making. His head is custom, too. This is a design I came up with which is very sturdy and reliable, but would be useless on Gringat. His mask shows too much nose. :P


Name: Callan
Gender: Male
Species: Matoran (G2)
Race: Ta-Il-Matoran
Occupation: Firelord of Bazryghan
Title(s): Brother (formerly), 'Druid'
Prevailing Element: Fire
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Typical Weapon: Visoraxe
MOC Status: Staff and hands disassembled
Era: Soulplague -> Start of War of the Weave



(Blind Guardian - The New Order)

Callan is the son of an Il-matoran mother and Ta-matoran father, his mother having been widowed when her previous Le-matoran husband died during kaitagenesis. Davix, his brother, was already mature (3 years old) when Callan was created.

Both of them found refuge in the Brotherhood of Korrothis as matoran. Callan worked for Lord Tahu, who took a shine to the young lad. In a freak accident working on ones of Korrothis' auxiliary engines, the protodermic tank burst, showering Callan, Davix and several other beings with energised protodermis. He and Davix became toa. The others weren't so lucky. Callan immediately (and offering no resistance) became one of Tahu's apprentices.



As a toa, Callan was offered a place in the Knights of Spherus Magna. He chose to stay with Tahu. This was partly because of a deep respect for his master, but also a deep love for another of Tahu's apprentices - Madura.
Upon Korrothis leaving, Callan stayed behind also, loyal to Tahu. The Weave council moved to Bazhrygan.
When the dying Ignika destroyed Tahu, Callan was chosen to succeed Tahu as Firelord. As his favourite apprentice, it was only right.



In the years that followed, tensions rose. The Knights of Spherus Magna, battered by many wars with Skakdi, Vortixx and Ja'kat, not to mention a strange new being heading the once-destroyed Dark Hunters, was becoming unstable. Tanggri, its leader, and her brother Nilmador, the current Airlord, gradually slipped further and further into enmity. Nilmador abandoned Bazryghan, taking his followers into Bota Magna and forming a resistance against the Knights. Callan's brother was one of them.



Meanwhile, in Bazryghan, Callan continued to serve as Firelord, even after war with the Druids was declared. Three years into the conflict, in midsummer, Callan met blades with his brother. Subduing and defeating Davix, Callan hesitated. Madura intervened, and, after fully seeing the evils the KoSM had commited and hidden from him, joined the Druids. In doing so he was no longer firelord.



The Druids formed their own weavic circle, Ackar taking the place of firelord before Callan had arrived. The War of the Weave took many lives, and two years later it was in full swing...




And here's my head design. :)

Sorry, Callan, for making you think I hadn't made this guy. You can't make one without the other!

A really nice design for his torso area, but I think his legs are a bit too simple compared to the rest of Callan. Great moc!

It always amazes me how good people can get at Bionicle. It is just like normal Lego, where you have the noobs and then the builders who get it. You are one of the best Bionicle builders I have seen. Well done.

Quoting Morzorka the vortixx field marshal epic version of callan, but regarding the fact in this that he has parents, all bionicles were either created by mata nui the great beings or the makuta 100,000 years prior to the start of the present storyline. =] sorry i cant help myself! (not being mean or anything)
You're right. My storyline stays true to this, until mine diverges upon the founding of Spherus Magna. Mata-Nui, in order to help the matoran population expand, uses the mask to allow matoran to procreate by forming a two-being kaita and then splitting back into three - the parents, severely weakened, and a child. This is completely different to how glatorian and agori go about it, but to make up for the downsides, matoran are able to have children with some other races by undergoing kaitagenesis with them. Also, in theory, the gender of the two matoran involved doesn't much matter... aliens are wierd.

"You can't make one without the other!" Excalty! I don't know why people think otherwise! As Josjake Sketch said, I love how you think out of the box of bricks and build so amazingly epic! The Zurg cape is a nice touch and his staff and custom mask are brilliant! Keep up the great work ;)

Blast! It seems my first comment didn't show! Oh well. So sorry for doubting that you built him. I love everything about him, this is probably one of the most original(and DEFINITELY one of the best) Callans I've ever seen! Thanks a million buddy! By the way, I made a fight of Callan vs Aungiel that I'll add in the next few days! :D

Callan looks pretty cool as Fire Lord. Loving the staff! :3 Unfortunately, I didn't like HF Firelord and the name just wants to punch that in my face. xD It's pretty cool you stuck to the concept of Callan having a custom head as well.

Quoting chopper skull ah, one of the things i like about you Gringat, is to trick people! Ha, bet callan isn't expecting this! or maybe he is..... Anyways i love the great use of more silver, gives callan a new look! I definitely love the body and the head designs! 4 on 5 though, because i love callan's version of his self moc more... sorry!
Good! I'd hate it if I'd outdone Callan on his own self-MOC.
