Story: Hana spent her youth in the jungles of Le-Koro. She enjoyed exploring all of the plantlife and enjoyed gardening with the beautiful vegetation that she could find. She later became a teacher of botany in Le-Koro, while exploring in her free time.
On one exploration of the jungles, she spotted a plant-looking object that could move and chased after it. After a short chase, she ended up at a covered cave that she had never noticed before. She entered the cave and began to explore. Eventually, she stepped into a vast library of plants, which included many specimens that she had never seen. In the center of the cave, there was an elder Toa with Blue and Green armor meditating. Upon entrance into the chamber, the Toa spoke to Hana.
"The Great Spirit has requested, in visions, for me to select the next Toa of Plantlife. I have been spying on the Bo-Matoran of these jungles to select the best Matoran. I have seen how you admire the vegetation of this jungle and how you are able to manipulate it to your advantage. Because of this, I have selected you to become the next Toa of Plantlife."
Hana couldn't believe what the elder Toa was saying to her. She was overjoyed and honored by the opportunity, but somewhat creeped out about the old Toa spying on her. She accepted the new opportunity and was given a Toa stone. Upon receiving the stone, she felt a flow of power and knowledge flow into her and saw the Toa become a Turaga. After a short discussion of her new powers, she agreed to return to train with the Turaga.
She returned every week to the cave to train with the Turaga and learned to master her powers.
She was congratulated by the Turaga. Then the Turaga vanished and she had a vision of Mata Nui saying that he had selected her to become a Toa of Plantlife. She was greatly honored and pledged to use her powers to protect those in need. She returned to Le-Koro and helped maintain its vegetation and protect against the wild Rahi attacks.
She was transported to Bara Magna aboard the Makuta robot but was unable to help due to the lack of plantlife around her. After the Battle, she helped in the rebuilding of the villages and helped spread vegetation around the planet. She later took residence in New Le-Koro and helped educate the Matoran and Agori in botany.
Many years later, she was invited to join the Council of Toa by Karihi who had met her during his time in Le-Koro. She joined the Council and carried out missions in densely forested areas. She favored a quick and stealthy combat style and used things like vines to discretely incapacitate her foes. She was later selected for the Toa Ropu.
My attempt at a sexy pose :P

Jaetaro's notes: I had a lot of fun building Hana. I got to try a lot of new designs and finally got to use turquoise and green in a build. This build wasn't initially going to be a female, but it ended up being one after I had finished the torso. I really like how she came out and I am happy with the slender figure which deviates from my usual bulky builds. Her name comes from the Japanese word for flower, Hana.
Thanks for viewing and return for the final Toa Ropu and a Toa Ropu page. Or you can check out my Flickr for previews.
Very cool! I like the colors, though there should be teal in the torso :P. The main photo, that's the background image I used on my "Remembering: Toa of Plantlife" XD. Very nice MOC, very femmy indeed! :D
Fine... you got me here. Now then. The torso is sadly lacking in teal whatsoever (although that could be the result of the overall teal shortage.) Also, I have never met a female IRL that is /that/ skinny. Also, just when I look at it it doesn't seem female to me. So that's my two cents. Now leave me alone.
A nice build,especially with the teal and the green Tahu mask.Also,with the teaser:just give him Nuju's toa mask and you have my self-MOC(they looks so similar).In the main photo,one of the plants is positioned in a way that makes it look like a hat on the toa :P
