Here is Tarshduk as an Agori!
I made this for two reasons:
1) For the Alt. SM Contest and the Sequelled Tournamocoff
2) Cause I wanted to :P
About this creation
Theme: "Ride" by Presence
Species: Agori of Air and Earth
Elements: Air and Earth
Titles: Tarsh, Dude (by Veshtar only), The Collector
Weapons: Wind Blade, Shield, Wrist Gun
Story: Tarshduk was a unique warrior, as he was of dual elements (Earth and Air). He is a daring, brave, and smart warrior. Tarshduk was originally a Glatorian, and was very good at it; as he would try to never give up despite the odds. As a result, he was very successful in the arena. Tarshduk was naturally gifted with the ability to lead and to fight. He was also very honorable and didn't fight dirty. While not in the arena, Tarshduk enjoyed exploring Bara Magna, collecting weapons that he thought were interesting and hanging out with friends. He also studied variety of fighting styles to create his own unique style.
As with many Glatorian, Tarshduk fought in the Battle of Bara Magna to defend his village against the Rahkshi and Skakdi, and because of him and some other Glatorian, saved the village of Tesara from the invaders. After that fateful battle, he went back to being a Glatorian. One day, he was brought to a room after one of his arena battles. In the room, he met three Turaga, Firox, Whinado, and Watock. They said that Tarshduk was chosen for a very special task, gave him a stone, and left. A few weeks after this, a Matoran messenger came and told Tarshduk to follow him. Tarshduk followed the Matoran to an ancient temple where he met the other Glatorian who would also become Toa Magna (Kirax, Fikar, Strarix, Veshtar, Tarvank).
In the temple, they became Toa and the Turaga Galaxy gave them the task of defending Spherus Magna from threats. Almost instantly, he became the leader of the Toa Magna with Kirax as his right-hand man. He and Kirax would usually come up with a plan before going into battle, but if he has to, will also improvise. He and his team have accomplished many key events in their history, including: stealing the Great Kanohi Mask of the Dead back from Makuta Teridax and destroying it in the great volcano of Gradow, fighting off the Blaholre at Tajun and other key cities of Spherus Magna, destroying Bloninux, helping hunt down the surviving Makuta and Dark Hunters, and many other events that have saved Spherus Magna.
He has many friends, like his teammates, other Toa, and many Agori, Matoran, and Glatorian. After one very fateful battle where Tajun was almost conquered by Skrall under the command of unknown warlords, Tarshduk was awarded a medal of honor for his bravery and courage from the Council of Toa and has since been inducted into it. He now roams Spherus Magna with his team in search of something that threatens the safety of Spherus Magna. Along the way, he spars with some passerbys to get even stronger. He also helps Kirax to try to find a cure to his dark infection. He also serves as the peace keeper between the two brothers, Veshtar and Tarvank.

(Pokémon references FTW XD)
Where to start... I've wanted to finish with all the forms that Tarshduk takes over his life and then two contests arose that also involved Agori. They were the Alt. SM Contest and the Sequeled Tournamocoff. So this is my entry to both of them.
You may be wondering why he has no gold... The reason why is that Elite Toa/Glatorian get metallic armor when they are transformed into them. Tarshduk became an Elite Glatorian and an Elite Toa so that's when he got the gold Armor, not as an Agori. In addition to that part of the build, I wanted to keep homage to the original Agori (ie: Berix, Raanu, Metus, etc.) by keeping the build similar to them (shield, Blade, small torso, etc.). I also tried to give him a warrior-like look.
Well the build was done well. Only thing is, as R.E.R said, the legs could've been done a bit differently, but it's not all that complainable. The Backstory is interesting as well. i give it... an 8/10
As a custom-made agori, this is great! I can see you made some sort of a.....belt on his body. IDK what it is but I like it! Weapons are also custom-made, well done. If I have to name any flaws, well I would mention the basic ideas for a leg, but alas there is only so much you can do to a matoran. Overall, Nice job on this! It's just missing a little.....well I don't know. I just know it's missing sometihng. Your Score: 8.25/10
