Story: Hira spent many years of her youth on a caravan which traveled between the villages of Mata Nui. On this caravan, she had a variety of roles ranging from being a healer to searching for new merchandise to defending the caravan. During her time with the caravan, she developed significant skills in her many roles; she became manipulative, yet caring and an able fighter. When the caravan wasn't traveling the island, she spent much of her time in search of treasures. On one expedition to a cave system near Onu-Koro, she discovered a cave filled with rare artifacts. She grabbed all she could in hopes that these items would fetch a fair price. All the artifacts sold in their next stop, except for a stone which she kept.

En route to its next stop, the caravan was attacked by a group of Rahi under the lead of a dark warrior. When she was searching her bag for her weapons, all she found was the stone (she had left her weapons in the last village after sparing with them). She searched for any weapons that she could use, but found that they were either too large or too heavy. In anger, she grabbed the stone and hurled it against the wall. She was then thrown back by a powerful blast of energy and thrown onto the desert sand. When she regained her bearings, she saw the dark warrior on top of her, about to strike. Fearing for her life, she grabbed the nearest object, which turned out to be the very stone she had just thrown, and smashed it into the warrior's chest. This caused a variety of things. A large blast of energy knocked the warrior back, the stone transformed Hira into a Toa, and the Rahi fled. The warrior revealed that he was a Makuta sent by Teridax to prevent her from becoming a Toa, which he had just failed at. Hira created a pair of blades made of carbon around her and began to fight the Makuta. Hira was nearly overpowered by him, if not for the others of the caravan. They provided enough of a distraction for Hira to create a cage made of carbon around the Makuta. Not knowing of the Toa Code, she killed the Makuta. She picked up a shard left from the Toa stone, which she later created into a necklace, and she and the others fled for Po-Koro where they recovered.

While in Po-Koro, she met Pohatu, who helped her train and taught her the ways of the Toa. After months of training, she regretfully decided to abandon the caravan to embark on her own path. She traveled the island, learning new abilities along the way. Eventually, she learned to have limited control over biological things, such as plants and the biological parts of Rahi and even some Matoran and Toa. Thus, she inherited great power, sometimes expoliting it to get what she wanted, which she was already good at. She stopped to end any threats she stumbled across and even reunited with the caravan from time to time.

While restocking on supplies in De-Koro, she was ambushed by a group of three Makuta who insisted that she had a major role in something that they refused to say. She fought them off but was eventually overcome. While they were about to kill her, each of the Makuta fell to the ground suddenly. Getting up, she created three carbon cages around the Makuta and looked around to see what caused the Makuta's sudden actions. While inspecting the nearby surroundings, she saw a glint of armor and proceeded to meet it. The wearer of the armor took off and Hira caught him with a carbon fist. He introduced himself as Desic, another Toa. She later joined with him until Makuta's takeover.

After the Battle of Bara Magna, Hira supplied medical care to those injured in the battle, which was aided by her mask and control over carbon. After, she stayed with the Matoran, resoving conflicts and acting as a medic. Eventually she was chosen by the Council of Toa for her medical and negotiating abilities. Later, she rejoined with Desic as a member of the Toa Ropu.











































Jaetaro's comments: Hira was fun to build. I spent about a week revamping her before the form you see now. I believe that this is better than Hana as a female moc, yet she does have the problem with the shoulders that is evident on Desic. She doesn't have any "official" weapons either, they can take in any form as long as they are made of carbon. As clarification, the clear bits on her are supposed to represent the diamond side to carbon. I also employed the usage of visors on the shoulder on her first. Overall, I am happy with the final design.

Now, I only have one more Toa Ropu to post and I will have posted them all. Can you figure out who is on the team?

Thanks for viewing! Please critique and rate! Thanks!

Quoting Sean /EMMSixteenA4 Nice MOC. I like it. The legs are definitely the best part. And the diamond elements on her not only make sense but work quite well. My only two critiques revolve around the head. While I like the Kaukau Nuva more than most Nuva masks, I feel like she could have used a bit more of that trans-clear. A trans-clear Mata Kaukau would work much better, in my opinion. And the hair seems to stick out a tad too much. Other than that, I really like it.
Thanks for the critiques. I don't have a clear Kaukau, and the cheapest on BL is $4, so I will experiment.
