Kraartuk was a member of a Toa team sent to Mahri-Nui in an attempt to retrieve the mask of life and then return to the surface.
Kraartuk served as the heavy hitter in the group as his Cordak Blaster was superior to others in terms of power as fired more rounds faster meaning he could put up more of a resistance without reloading as frequently as the other members, this made him a valuable asset in holding positions while other members completed tasks.
At one point, he was told to hold position outside a temple while the other members went inside. He stood his ground against hordes of enemies but something happened and the temple was destroyed, he became trapped under one of the entrance pillars and blacked out.
When he regained consciousness, he used the propeller on his cordak blaster to pull himself out from under the pillar and when he ventured into the destroyed temple ruins, he couldn't find a trace of his allies. He assumed that as there was no trace, they escaped and left him for dead. The betrayal made Kraartuk vengeful but as he couldn't release his anger on his 'former' team-mates, he turned his back on the life of a Toa and became Kraartuk, Anti-Toa of the deep.
I've been told I should make more Toa so here I have........an anti-toa!
I just can't make good characters that much, I'm more interested in villainous ones because of design and backstory.
This guy came around after I made Mahri Nuparu and just wanted to try the whole undersea/diving suit style. Of-course he's custom and I did use lime here but in accent colours. It's not right in your face but adds a nice overall touch to break up the silver. His back is my favourite part as his air tanks are nicely 'snug' within the back area with a rounded armour covering it without obstructing the overall 'smoother' feel.
For the Cordak Blaster, I used the same end as Nuparu's, but then I just kept adding and adding until it was about half the size of the character alone. Right near the end I added dual handlebars and a propeller so that it could double up as some form of transportation.
Overal, a nice addition to my mocs and it goes partway to making vehicles/transportation and generally larger accessories for my average sized mocs.

Lesovikk, anyone? XD
Lol, Lesovikk lost his team in an unfortuante ambush and now seeks to do good deeds as his redemption. Kraartuk here just feels like he was abandoned and is anger fueled, but yeah with his transport I see the similarity :P
