"Harsh" is the first MOC I build for my storyline, set on the fictional island of Aho Nui. Down here is a little bit of history about Aho Nui, feel free to read it.
Before the Kän-Xi forces invaded Aho Nui, the race of the Druids, super-energized Turaga, reigned over the island. The population felt well under the reign, and paid respect to their leaders. The Druids experimented with the huge Molten Protodermis reservoirs (sited under the island) to create different genius constructions like the Aho Nui Rail-Track. However, they also hooked on their formidable magic rituals. Against this combination of highly sophisticated technology and immensely powerful conjuring, not even the thuggish Skakdi could stand. Their invasion armies were smashed into the ground as they set foot on the atoll. But a surprise attack of the Kän-Xi, a violent alien species, shortly before the beginning of the Destiny War, concealed by the powers of Shadow, bolted from the blue and caused Aho Nui to be invaded and occupied. The Rail-Track was damaged, as long with many other constructions. The Druids had to hide with most of the population in the caverns under the island to prepare rebellion, while some brave fighters, like "Harsh", Zeki ["Harsh"'s partner] or Ülec [my Self-MOC, to be posted] stayed and fought guerrilla war against the invader.
"Harsh" is an unfriendly, rough and selfish character, who shares next to nothing with your average happy-go-lucky Le-Matoran. He saw way too many things to still be a kind villager, and behaves this way, too. "Harsh" is somewhat deranged, the only things interesting him being: rolling in the mud and stabbing enemies. Before fighting guerrilla war, “Harsh” was a lumberjack, means he got a nasty preference for axes and halberds to cut down trees as well as opponents.
Look forward for some more Aho Nui MOCs!
Fourth Wall: I built this lil' guy around a gunmetal grey Zamor Launcher, as you may have seen. I thought of CrazyAwesome's nice use of Zamor Launchers to build his Self-MOC's legs, and decided to use one of these for a torso. Very pleased with the result :D Dark green and Gunmetal grey work well together.
Would you believe it? This little MOC swallowed almost all of my dark green parts!
Squid snack :3
Of gunmetal grey, luckily, I have much more.
Size comparison with Örf. The latter's got a new neck, for I needed many Metruan limbs for WIP: Botar's Replacement
