I've been meaning to revamp this guy for ages. But considering what just happened to him in Hunt for "God", I thought now would be a good time to do it.
About this creation
Parah was a Toa of Stone (Before he lost his title) and a member of the Toa Racta. He is cynical and sarcastic. He takes things lightly, and likes to crack jokes on regular ocasions.
Parah was turned into a Toa on Metru Nui, and sent to help the Toa Metru. However, he was put into a coma by Makuta Teridax. He was awakened by Mata Nui after the death of Teridax. The Order of Mata Nui sent Parah to Racta Magna, where he joined the Toa Racta.
Parah battled Makuta Arvour in 'the Days of Shadowed Magna', a short bloody war in which very few know just the full details of.
Parah, along with the other Toa Racta, helped battle Thanatos and his cult from destroying the planet in order to destroy "The Gate": a mystical doorway from the world of the living to the world of the dead. For a short while, Parah supposedly lost his title of Toa after killing a creature, but due to a loophole (The Toa code becomes irrelevent in times of all out war), he was allowed to keep his title.
A while later, Parah was approached by Toa Onika, who explained to him that before the Turaga died, he warned Onika about an upcoming invasion from the Sombrak. Despite Solorak, a member of the Order of Mata Nui, forbidding any unortharised action, the Toa carried out Trokan's plan of defence anyway; to gather allies and six elemental staffs, under the pretense that the six of them combined could defeat Makuta Aroxion, the Sombrak leader. Parah and Galika met up with Cilla and Montu and took them back to the city. Parah then accompanied Toa Raxonax, Toa Montu and Toa Benu into Racta Minus where they met Soka, who gave him the Elemental Staff of Stone. They returned to Racta Major in time to battle the Sombrak at the gates. Parah battled Makuta Arvour with the help of Soka. After the battle, Parah met up with the other Toa Racta and discovered that Makuta Aroxion had sneaked inside the city. They used Toa Dorru's Kanohi Kualsi to teleport inside and they blasted Aroxion with the Elemental Staffs. Unfortunately, this only seemed to make Aroxion more powerful. "Light Aroxion" then suggested using the staffs to charge himself up, and combined with his own powers, charged at Aroxion. This resulted in an explosion which killed both Aroxions and transformed the Toa Racta into Turaga, officially ending the Racta/Sombrak war.
Parah, now a Turaga, became the leader of Racta Major and is governing the city with his five teammates.
An Overview. I'm pretty proud of what I've done here, and although only the torso is custom, I believe that this guy has some pretty cool designs.
The back. At some point, I'll get rid of all of the silver bits on this guy.
Is the text big enough for ya this time? ;)
With the Toa Racta. Takathorax on his left, Krode on his right. Sorry for the dark photos. The light dies pretty quickly in winter.
With Arvour (read backstory)
That's all, folks!
