Gringat, Hawklord
"Letoka is not a static spirit. It does not stay when you tell it to, or go where you will it to. Treat it with caution, like the wild hawk it is, and, eventually, it will come to you on its own." Gringat to a young toa of air.

Occupation: Lord of Bazryghan
Title(s): Toa, Lenui, Turaga
Prevailing Element: Air

(Uriah Heep - The Wizard (New Version))



Gringat's true memories by now extend only to about a hundred years before the Destiny War. His time as a weapons mechanic on the Island of Poliaz and Xia are long forgotten, likewise his time as one of the Toa Vanembar in service of the now-dead Lord Poliaz and his viceroy Vanembar. Even the majority of his service to Mata-Nui as a Lord is all but lost to the ages, kept by the runic memoirs in the library of the Tower of Air in Bazryghan, one of the largest cities in the Matoran Empire.



Following Teridax's takeover, the Lords of Korrothis faced a chilling decision, and ultimately followed it - Korrothis would leave the Matoran Universe, causing a nine-fold Weavestorm (known as Tempesta Magna) Teridax would be forced to quell, weakening him considerably. It worked, but not without the loss of the Lords of Light, Shadow and Fire. Korrothis flew to support Mata-Nui in his fight with Teridax, focusing on the Weave and keeping his unstable systems in balance. The island's energized core was spent during the battle, so Korrothis crashed to the ground as Spherus Magna was reforming.



After Teridax's defeat by Mata-Nui, Korrothis was rebuilt, and the city of Bazryghan was built around it. Gringat and his wife Tynne were some of the first to follow Mata-Nui's plan of allowing the matoran race to produce children via kaitagenesis, and together they formed two - Tangri and Nilmador.



Gringat continued to train new toa, of which there were many. Many became Knights of Spherus Magna under Helryx and Artakha, while others, like Davix, became Archons. Gringat's job was harder now on Spherus Magna, as the world was far, far bigger than the Matoran universe, and its "Letoka" was far, far wilder.



By the end of his time as Le-Nui, Gringat was the second most senior Lord of Korrothis, alongside Xalos, and a very respected (or hated) figure across the planet, be it by friend or foe of the Matoran Empire.


When vaults beneath the city of Drachen's Hope were uncovered, a being known as the Decipherer was awoken. It understood the work of the Great Beings, including the location of their "homeworld". Gringat was one of the few beings that had ever flown a spacecraft (Korrothis), and designed one (its engines), and he was entrusted with with leading a mission to the new world, Iruini taking his place as Le-Nui.

733 years after departing from Spherus Magna... well, let's say "To be continued"...


With D-7 and Mezzinus, my other two self-MOCs.

This version of Gringat is extra special. Unlike the last version, this one I'm actually fairly proud of. He has wings - with feathers! Spent an age getting those right. More importantly, he looks more... dynamic than the old one. V-10 wasn't meant to be around for long, ended up being there for more than a year. Ah well.

There's a special version I'm posting my new self-MOC today, too. Today's my birthday. A lot of you have already sent me greetings and all, which is lovely. It's not just any birthday though; it's my 18th. I am now, officially, an AFOL. I'm ramping up the MOC quality a few notches now. :P Oh, and those Breakout sets? Expect to see their bits in a 'lot' of my MOCs in the future...

EDIT:
Some alternate themes!

Quoting Gringat the Repugnant Congratulations man, you won! If you're ok with telling me your address I can send the mask over pretty cheaply and quickly since it's so small. Might have to do that privately over Skype/email though. I wish MOCpages had PMs.
Many thanks! I'm not sure if you can find my address on my bricklink InstantNoodles. If not, jellytie at gmail. Thanks again!

Wow, this is amazing. I love his spear, and when he gets the wings, I feel like he's sort of undead and skeletal like. But how big is he? I feel like he's a Titan, but I really have no clue how tall he is. Maybe you should have a comparison with an Inika just for reference. This is truly amazing. :)

Very nice work here, Gringat. I thought at first it was great, and then I saw the wings XD. Brilliant work there! I might make him sometime, as long as you don't mind him not being custom and not having those fins (never got Onua and don't have a Bricklink :/) Also, happy MOCiversary! It may be morning in Britain right now, not really sure, but here it's still today, so hooray for last-minute stuff! Finally, do you think you could give me some friendly C&C on my self-MOC? It doesn't even have to be a comment on the MOC, I just want more ideas as to how to improve him, since he's getting an upgrade in my series. Again, not looking for smileys, just some friendly advice on MOCing. Thanks in advance, again, really cool MOC here. (p.s. I applaud you if you read all that XD)

Hai! I love your self moc! I've been visiting your page for a long time now, and I've always enjoyed seeing your mocs. Especially Gringat. I admire the fact that you put your own personality into him, though I'm not sure if you have Mitch-matched socks in real life. Keep your mocs coming! ~Jaks

Wow... great staff, Awesomely God-like wings... And a Superb body design... Heck, i love it all! Some of your ideas that make Gringat seem a bit more Human-like ( like his mask meaning he has a Goatee, and his Odd-Socks(every one needs some odd socks!) are really good. This is probably one of the best self-MOCs on the 'pages.

Wow, why haven't I seen your stuff before? I should have. Anyway, three things about you make you really awesome. Number one, you are an official AFOL. Number two, Gringat is an amazing self-moc, he looks noble and intimidating at the same time, very impressive, as well as your other self-mocs. I love Mechs. Number three, you are British. That, in and of itself, is awesome.
  May 22, 2012
Hey Gringat! It's been a while; how have you been? I must say your creations never fail to impress! Hopefully I will have an official self-MOC created soon (other than Calvaus which really doesn't fit my character all too well anymore). Anyways, I'm out of college for the summer, and I'm gearing up for a building frenzy! Before I can accomplish this, I do need your help. I've been experimenting with posting music on my pages, but I have not been successful. Any chance you could give me some tips on how to do this? Thanks! I can't wait to share some creations with you.

It's great to see you again, Gringat! This new version of your self-MOC is absolutely great! I would say that the waist is a problem but everyone else already said it. Also, you may want to add more Mata red on the lower legs. Don't have to if this pleases you.

:O Happy (late) birthday Gat! Now, on the MOC. Your best version of him, and possibly one of your best MOCs. Both forms are very good, have nice designs and colors that just flow together. I like how you used the Quaza Spke things as feathers for the wings, they look very good. I only think the waist is umm... thin. Otherwise, everything is (tryin' not to use epic, very hard >.<) perfect. 5* and keep up the great work man!

Wait. I just realized how incredible simple those lower arms are. And they still look great!

  February 9, 2012
Hmm, perhaps a couple of rods or levers on the sides of the waist might help to better achieve your Toa Mata feel?
 I made it 
  February 9, 2012
Concerning the waist, I was a little skeptical of it myself, but my reasoning is that being "humanoid" isn't so important if my character isn't human. It's meant to hearken back to the toa mata, and the torso piece they had with the single flexible "spine" down the waist.

That chest is just amazing! Happy birthday as well, it's weird to think of you as an afol now :D I'm working on a tan moc that I'm basing (a bit) of your robot there (mezzinus, I think?) that coming out pretty good, so... yeah! Epic moc, oh and those wings are freaking amazing!

You know... I love this version of Gringat. I can definitely see how this is special. It just somehow shows, even though I can't explain it. The shape of the body is quite different with such muscular legs and that narrow waist, but it works really well together. And those wings are just awesome and smooth looking. Something I'd love to use on Monarth, however the shape and color won't fit him sadly. Overall, this is excellent work. And happy birthday there. I'm not far behind of you, as I turn 18 April 1st. Cheers =]

Wow, he is absolutely amazing! The greebles on his lower arms and upper legs look fantastic! Thee new feets are very cool, and I think the "hand" on the back of his head is new, too. The pistols on his lower body greeble him very nice. The staff looks pretty cool! You've done excellent work on this! And I also notice you changed his sock color :D And do you may want to join my official story group? You're in, and it would be good to hear your opinion on my plannings.

Wow, where to begin... I thought Gringat V10 was beyond my level, but this is incredible! I'm not sure if the new staff and heartlight go well with him, but they're really well implemented! The waistcape doesn't really work IMO, 'cause of the thin-ness of his waist. But that's seriously as much as I can critique. The whole MOC is beautifully put together and just looks sooooo good. Those wings, are...immaculate. (Used a thesarus for that one.) Over-all, this MOC breaks the rating system. I would almost pay to see art like this! Anyway, on a different note, I thought I might ask you... how would Gringat like to be the King of Luna Magna? That's right, I'm building him. (I've been planning to for a while now.) I'm just asking if I can use him in my story. Please? :D Thanks for being awesome!
