While many people might wonder "Why did you update him? He was great the last time,". I simply say to that, I didn't like him that much. Whenever I build a MOC, I also try to build something that someone can play with, and is good for stop-motion, and the last version was neither. But this one will hopefully be the last update of Gren, because I will (hopefully) be making a series on YouTube called Bionicle Nova, and I don't want him to mysteriously change forms mid-season.

Gren was originally a Matoran of Metru Nui, and as a result, Mata Nui. While on Mata Nui, he befriended a Ko-Matoran, named Fross, and they later went on adventures while exploring the Island. One such adventure resulted in them getting two unusual Masks, and they were the Mask of Sonics, and the Mask of Endurance. And both Masks were made precisely so that even Matoran could use them, but only a little at a time.
They eventually went back to Metru Nui along with the other Matoran of Mata Nui, and later they evacuated to Shperus Magna. Immediately after exiting, they took part in the Great Transformation, that turned a hundred Matoran into Toa.
Gren, Fross, and a group of other Toa, were tasked with exploring Spherus Magna. They also were given a guide to the landscape, who was a Glatorian named Kotan. Their exploration mission was put to a halt when their Toa Team was attacked, and only Gren and Fross survived. After the attacked, Fross went missing for two days, and returned with a horrifying appearance. The two later began going from village to village, being their Toa protectors.
But Later, the Unification War broke out, and they would fight the Dark Hunters, and their allies, for their freedom. During the war, Gren discovered a temple that was built underneath the former dessert of Bara Magna. In that temple, he came into contact with a strange power, that made him grow in height, and turned his armor a silvery gray instead of green (what, did you think his was like this naturally?). Later, the newly formed Agori/Matoran Alliance defeated the Dark Hunters, and peace reigned for decades. But when the Toa Guardianswere formed, Gren and Fross became Rogue Toa, and resumed the job as the protectors of Matoran and Agori.
This was finally put to an end when Toa Helryx asked them to join a new Toa Team that they were forming in a place called Nexus Valley, and they excepted gratefully.
The legend of the Iron Hawk says the when the three become one (referring to the reformation of Spherus Magna), a warrior will soon rise, and be called the Iron Hawk. The Iron Hawk's destiny will be to defeat someone only referred to as "The Shadowed One". Many believed that Toa Lucan was this Iron Hawk, due to defeating the Shadowed One. But that was proven false when they discovered that when the Iron Hawk is supposed to complete his destiny, a Red Star will fall upon the world, and bring those who were dead back from death.
Anyway, to the MOC!
From the front.
From the back.
His duel Great Swords.
The Elemental Cannon is a weapon that was used commonly during the Unification War, and it has the ability to fire a burst of their element, far greater than anything they could summon. Elemental Cannons are also now commonly used by Rogue Toa.
His Flight Pack.
I only changed one thing about his Flight Pack; replacing the gunmetal piece with a silver one.
When his swords are on his wings, they increase his elemental might tenfold.
