About this creation
(Bio)
Name: Rahksanne
Gender: No Gender, but Rahksanne feels she is female.
Species: Makuta's Creation
Element: Red Lightning
Race: Enhanced Kraata
Title(s): The Night Spark, Sister, Friend, Traitor.
Mask: None
Weapon(s): Red Phoenix (sword), Staff of Darkness (formerly, destroyed)
Story:

During the rise of Teridax, Aqua Magna was in turmoil. Rahkshi ran rampant, rounding up Matoran as slaves to the Makuta. When Teridax heard of Mata Nui’s presence on Bara Magna, he knew he had to personally attend to the threat. However, Teridax was unsure of his Rahkshi’s competency to keep Aqua Magna secure while he was away.



Therefore, he began to design a Rahkshi Captain, capable of commanding the hordes in the absence of Teridax. His first attempt was strong, but not creative enough to hold its own against a Toa. Much to Teridax’s frustration, the Captain was quickly destroyed.



After some extensive redesigning, Teridax began work on a second, more powerful Captain named Rahksanne. This Captain was given a higher level of personality than the first. When tested, Rahksanne was more than competent in defeating a Toa. However, Rahksanne was too intelligent to blindly follow orders like other Rahkshi, and Makuta failed to instill evil into the Captain when creating it. Rahksanne defeated the Toa, but hesitated on a killing stroke.



Teridax ended the fight, and recalled Rahksanne. Considering the Rahkshi to be a failure, Teridax put the Rahksanne into storage. There, it was able to think. She, for the Captain had decided that it was feminine being, realized the evil that Teridax had inside him, and resolved to smite the Makuta the first chance she got.



A few weeks later, she got the chance when Teridax’s next creation, called Cossy, rebelled and freed Rahksanne and some Toa that were also imprisoned. They were, however, re-captured and forced to face the full wrath of Makuta. After obliterating one of the Toa with a mighty fist, Teridax set the Rahkshi hordes upon the surviving group.



The Rahkshi, while individually weaker than Cossy or Rahksanne, overwhelmed them with numbers and incapacitated the group. The Rahkshi especially hated Rahksanne, considering her to be a traitor to their race.



Rahksanne’s staff was taken from her and broken in two, taking away her power over Darkness. They were hauled into Makuta’s robot body and imprisoned until he was defeated by Mata Nui.


After the fall of Makuta, Cossy, Rahksanne, and the other surviving Toa (a Toa of Red Lightning named Josan and a wise Toa of Light named Lakuva) formed a team known as the Sentinels, who were tasked with freeing Spherus Magna from the remainder of Teridax’s forces and other dangers



They successfully defeated many an opponent, despite Rahksanne’s lack of powers and Cossy’s difficulty controlling his Makuta-designed bloodlust. However, the Sentinels faced a particularly powerful evil that defeated the four heroes. Josan was killed, and Cossy was wounded before they could escape.



Rahksanne hated herself for lacking the power to save Josan, and feared that she might be unable to aid Cossy should he find himself in a life-threatening scenario. Both she and Cossy were created by Makuta, so Rahksanne considered Cossy to be family, and shuddered at the thought of losing him.



She took her concerns to Ignam, the blacksmith Matoran who freed Cossy from Teridax’s command. Ignam was a wise Matoran, and found a way to use the heartlight of the late Josan to forge a blade for Rahksanne.


Similar to her original Staff of Darkness, this sword, named the Red Phoenix, gave Rahksanne the power over Red Lightning. With her newfound power, Rahksanne and Cossy returned to the city where the evil was brooding, and dispatched it with ease.



Due to the success of Cossy and Rahksanne, the Toa Mata decided to grant Cossy the title of Lord of Blue Flame, and assigned him a Toa team with Lakuva. Much to Rahksanne’s disappointment, she was not given a position on Cossy’s team.



Cossy naturally asked her to join him, but she declined. If the wise and mighty Toa Mata did not see her as worthy to be considered a Toa, she figured the young heroes that made up Cossy’s Toa Lotem would also be unable to accept her less than Toa-like form.



She left Cossy to roam the desert, thwarting raid attempts of Bone Hunters and Skrall bandits on travelling Matoran. Rahksanne did not wish to frighten the Matoran she saved, so she adopted an elusive nature.



These mysterious encounters with a lightning-powered vigilante led Matoran to give her the nickname, “The Night Spark”.



Occasionally, Rahksanne and Cossy cross paths, but their duties often keep them apart: two legends, both with the same origin, but forever separated by different destinies.



And that's Rahksanne :D



Just wanna show you guys the three of them on my Shelf, Rahksanne, Cossy and Ignam :D

Fourth Wall Commentary:
So here is Rahksanne, the MOC that started the combining of Cody's and my storyline :) For those wondering Cody just one day came up with the idea for Rahksanne and asked if he could build her and put her into my storyline. I loved the idea and we got talking. We then just decided to combine our storylines :)

Even since those Quaza spike pieces came out I really wanted to use them on a Rahkshi, and Rahksanne was the perfect excuse! Also the spine design I used here was inspired by
Fenrek's spine design. Also I'm really pleased with that arm design on this MOC, hope you like it :)

As for my next post I would like to build Lakuva, if not him then Shakahv (who is close to being finished but may need a Bricklink order or two first) As of now I don't have any finished MOC's to post, so hopefully I will be able to finish one for next week, if not my next post should be in a couple of weeks :)

Thanks for viewing folks!


Couple final things:
I have a Flickr now, take a look if you wish:

I have combined my story with Cody G's Bionicle storyline, so take a look at his page:

Till Next Time
See Ya~

When I say my old stuff I mean anything past Zethlin or my MOC off with Gringat MOC's are MOC's I'm not a fan of. But I'm glad you like Rahksanne, I myself am very pleased with her.

You know, you've said that some of your past MOCs aren't as good as you'd like them to be, but looking back on this one, it's a really solid build.

The only thing about this that bugs me is the tail. Not a lot, it just sort of doesn't look right to me. Everything else, though, is amazing. My favorite parts are the torso and the story behind the character.

Wow. This is amazing. Though personally, I think the neck doesn't look enough like a Rahkshi. I think it should be a little thinner, but the rest is excellent. It reminds me of the Xenomorph from Alien. especially the tail and arms. And that is never a bad thing. 5/5

How exactly do you expect me to comment on this epic moc without freaking out ?! :O Your mocs always impress me but this is unreal. First I gotta say you truly captured the "movie-look" and feel of this moc. The build and designs/part choice are absolutely incredibly clever. I can see you did take a bit of inspiration from other people's Rahkshi mocs, but that's perfectly fine ! :D Your combination of technic and hero factory is masterful. (I've seen Fenrek do some impressive stuff too but this is really smooth looking)BTW, why does the link to fenrek's page redirect me to my own ? Anyways, super happy to see you back again, actually makes me want to come back even more to this community :D (and I will soon)

Really good moc you've got here, Ben! Black and red is the color combination of the century :D I'm really loving the arms and the spine (obviously) because the way you made the armor plating is masterful. I can't say I'm really digging the legs though, because the angle of the digitigrade legs looks as if she's always sitting down. I don't know if that's posing or if that's how it was built, but I think there's a potential for this to look more feral. Now, I have to get to building my Rahkshi...

  August 5, 2013
Great design for the spine, but it looks like the quaza spikes don't connect onto anything. They must've been a pain to get in there. Well it's a very nice Rakshi, Ben!

HAHA I was wondering when someone would ask me that... I don't know, I just kinda prefer to reply to heaps of comments in the one comment, rather then spam the comments with 10 reply's. That and I think not using it just pretty's up things :P

Thanks all :D Woops, just noticed that too X :P HAHA I'll just say the name can have two spellings :P Since Cody and I have combined our storylines Glorified Pessimist, my story is his, so yes, she does die in our story. I agree Coconut, about those legs, need to fix that! Cheers Wertman ;) I gave her the chicken leg design since she is meant to be a bit of a super Rahkshi, so I wanted her to be different :) Thanks Clever Crowe :D Thanks Taile. I agree with you on the tail, as for the sword, I’m not great at building weapons, so one may come later, and I'll include it in another post :)

Ben, love everything about this well-shaped fig, EXCEPT the abruptness of the tail-shape emerging from the base of the spine. Just some constructive criticism, I think tapering would've benefited it, a bit. GREAT torso, very nice closure with your greeble-use (has added well to completeness in your limb-shapes). Overall nice work, my compliments. =D

Awesome dude! I really like her Staff, it reminds me of Lerahk's Staff. Her torso design is really nice, It looks very flexy and runs the whole way through. My only real gripe is the legs. I can understand the use of the feet, because they were designed with the original Rahkshi, but they really don't work well with triple segment legs like that. I would make them into two segments, considering Rahkshi never had three segmented legs. But maybe I'm nitpicking. Great MOC; maybe my favorite from you! Well done bro!
 I like it 
  August 4, 2013
It is a great use of those Quaza spikes, they really do fit Rahkshi very well. The overall construction is very well built, it flows nicely and isn't interrupted by any gaps and cracks in the armor. Her positions in the pictures (to me anyway) makes it seem like she's sitting on an invisible chair. A pose with extended upper legs would be helpful.

  August 4, 2013
Masterful! It's clear you've put a lot of thought into how Rahksanne would move, both as a model and as a living, breathing(?) entity. The tube work on the body is excellent, the spine is nigh on perfect, and the stomach area looks like a series of sliding plates. The aspect of the MOC I really don't like are the knees, but that's probably more to do with how you've posed them instead of the actual build. The angle's too acute. She looks like she's sitting down all the time.
 I made it 
  August 4, 2013
Thanks all :) Sounds cool Toa Spirit, no rush :) Glad you like it X, thanks for the in depth comment. The tail and chicken legs are a storyline thing, to set her apart from normal Rahkshi I added that :) No. No X that will not happen, no more year breaks. What do you mean a staff Snaggletooth? Do you not see the staff in the pictures? Anyway thanks again all ;)

  August 4, 2013
Dem spikes! Well another master piece from mister Cossy! I like dat color scheme(but who doesn't!). The chicken legs are a nice touch, bit considering Rahkshi only have straight legs...It's kinda weird,but it works IMO. Nice job using the lime green hand to correspond with the lime heartlight! The torso is amazing, all those greebles! And the tubes going through the torso are pretty cool! The arm design is great, the use of the circle type pieces to make arm movement is a VERY nice touch! The lower arm design looks as great as the upper arm design, both very fantastic! Tail is a nice touch, but for me it looks weird on a Rahkshi character. I also really like how the color scheme is kept without ruining it, by adding the green! The staff design(for Reap) looks like it was inspired by some type of noodles...Instant Noodles! Despite that it looks and fits the character very well! And the story was enjoyable, just as Cossy's was. Overall it's a great moc worthy of being held in one of the Bionicle Gods home. ;) .....no Cossy, you post soon...weeks becomes months, than months become YEARS!Seem Familiar.... :P

This is very nice. I've always thought that those spikes were perfect for Rahkshi as well, but have never had the time to sit and think about how to incorporate them. Calling the matoran Ingam made me laugh. It sounds (and looks) almost like the brand of chicken. I'm impressed with the staff, though I think I've seen a similar design somewhere before. What I'm really impressed with is that you managed to keep the dust off all that black. The homeage to the original Rahkshi (the feet) was a nice touch. Ever envious of your Mr. Gold.
