Majda Tym "Drujaya" (Drew-J-Eye-A) . A timekiller MOC that I built using the "You Decide!" Frame I posted a few days ago. Don't worry, this is not permanent and the "You Decide!" is still a go. .
The Majda are a race of sentient bio-mechanoid beings that was created by a humanoid race called the Razida. These beings, the Majda and the Razida, lived in harmony, often paired in relationships. Many of the Majda were engineered to contain pilot "cavities" where a Razida would sit within, and the two would link their minds, making the pair far stronger.
There are literally hundreds of types of Majda, each and everyone of them sentient and alive. Drujaya is a female Tym (prounouced 'Team'), a type of foot soldier, and is one of many that are incapable of actually carrying a Razida. She is unfortunately the last of here kind.
Now you may ask, if the Majda are alive, despite being mechanical, then how do they reproduce? Majda are a living mech of organic and non-organic compounds, metals, and Nanomachines. When the Majda reproduce, they create sort of an egg that will grow into a full grown Majda. The Razida, in order to prevent design stagnation, designed the Nanomachines that make up the Majda to compare the Nanos between the male and female, and to select the best traits, then creating a new Nano with a unique operating parameter.
Drujaya's head is not a head in the stricter sense of the word. It is really a plate of armor to which is connected her senses. The only prominent system is her vision array, literally her eyes. The black sphere under the front of the head plate contains three eyes, and the mechanical workings to operate it. The cup-like plate attached to the bottom of her eyes are the for protection, and rotates in the direction she is looking. A male Tym oftens has a crest that extends out the back of his head.
A view of Drujaya's torso. Since the Majda are alive, it comes at no surprise that each Majda is slightly different and thus is unique. Some Majda have colorations, like spots or streaks. Some are very slender where as others are heavier and grow heavier shell plating. Drujaya is about medium, though as she grew, she has conditioned herself for longevity. Being made of Nanos, the Majda's entire body is part of its brain, but each Majda creates a central nueral nexus, the center of itself. This nexus is almost always located in the most heavily protected section of the chest, and a Majda can fully recover from 90% body damage as long as the nexus is safe.
Drujaya's back. In her case, Drujaya features a large NanoFactory tank on her back, something akin to the digestive and circulatory system in humans. Raw materials are processed and directed to where they are needed as well as the direction of energy. Majda can utilize energy of many types, from fuel and food, to electrical powersources, and even lightning (which has an effect on the Majda similar to alcohol for humans.) Futher shell plating provides protection for her hips.
As Majda grow, they each develop differently and will often show very unique traits as a result of life's experiences. When Drujaya was young, before her shell plates had hardened to a sufficient thickness, she recieved an injury to her left arm. While it had healed, and no serious impediment occured, this left her arm's design changed, and incidentally, caused Drujaya to favor her left arm in combat, the reason her Savik(part shield, part sword) is mounted to her left arm.
Drujaya's right arm is a more typical design, as set forth by her Nanos' programming. Through her youth and training, Drujaya has shown apt capabilities in hand to hand fighting, though she almost exculsively uses her right hand to attack. This has caused the shell plating around her right hand to thicken.
Tym were originally designed in humanoid form, but through selection over hundreds of generations, their leg structure has adopted a more compound design. This has increased their overall speed and agility rating. Because of Drujaya's training, which is designed to affect how the shell plates form, she has tough shell plates on the outside of her legs, but very thin on the inside, which allows her to run very fast.
Drujaya's feet are a bit on the slender side, but feature heavy toe shell plates due to kick training. She is quick on her feet, but very balanced. Most often times, a Majda's feet can tell the life experiences of that particular Majda, from the kind of training required to the individual disposition of the Majda's personality. Though only a skilled Razida would be able to tell.
Being a Tym, Drujaya was trained as a foot soldier, though the term in their language is more akin to guard. As such, she excels in hand to hand fighting as well as in the use of various blades, including her favorite, the Savik. A savik borrows concepts from both shields and swords, resulting in a tough, broad sword that attaches to the Tym's forearm. In addition, while doing their jobs, Tym wear "battleflags" which often denote rank, unit, and any special distinctions. Unfotunately, Drujaya's battleflag is empty since she lost her people before being assigned.
Here is Drujaya, equipped with her battleflag and Savik. She is capable of using ranged weapons, but strongly prefers not to deal with them, instead opting for melee weapons. Both of Drujaya's parents were captains of very strong units, and she has inherited from them a firey yet determined disposition. If she set's her mind to something, she will accomplish it, and she's very stubborn.
While the Nanos in an adult Majda are very benign, infant Majda under the age of a year are considered toxic. It takes the Nanos a year from birth to understand the nature of life and will dissemble anything that they deem useful before this age, even Razida. After this age, the Nanos learn to function without harming the environment around them and can coexist with nature. Lifespans vary among types, but Tym can live for 2000 years, though their normal life expectancy is about 350 years.
Well to be honest, this is really just a tablescrap that I built while playing around with the more awkard white parts that I haven't used. She needs a lot of polish, though I had a great deal of fun making her.
Her race was a creation of mine in a roleplay a long time ago, and though this isn't the Drujaya from that roleplay (in the rp, Drujaya was a Feris, a Majda capable of carrying a single occupant in a cockpit like chest cavity.) she turned out very well.
Here's a photo of Drujaya and the Class V Bioroid as a size comparison.
Drujaya was built on the "You Decide!" Frame I presented. Don't worry, I'm still going to let you all decide, this is just a temporary build for fun. When the time comes, I'll strip the frame and build what you all decided.
In case you want to add your opinion to my project.
Well, that's about all, folks! If you read the descriptions, then I hope you enjoyed it, if not, I hope you enjoyed the buuild.
