Cyris, the Stabiliser . Guess who’s back! I’ve returned from my hiatus and I bring the newest version of my Self-MOC with me! Enjoy :D . Name: Cyris (formerly known as Polsuris and Pol)
Species: Matoran (disguised as an Onu-Matoran)
Affiliation: Toa Kanei, Order of Mata Nui
Titles: Toa, Toa of Energy, Brother, Energetic Toa, Foretold Stabiliser of Spherus Magna
Kanohi: Kigen, the Mask of Regensis. Has powers similar to the Kiril (Mask of Regeneration), but extends to organic beings and, when combined with Cyris’ powers, has to power to heal entire structures and even planets (if given enough power).
Powers: As the Toa of Energy, Cyris can perform attacks made out of pure energy (e.g. energy beam), absorb energy (e.g. kinetic and heat, but not other elements) and he can also create weapons and the like out of energy (E=mc^2 for all you science nerds :P)
Story (It’s a long one :D): A long time ago, during the Core War, the Great Beings discovered that despite their plan to use the Mata Nui robot to restore Spherus Magna to its former glory after it would break apart, the effects would only be temporary. They realised that the Energised Protodermis that was contained in the planet’s core would still be unstable and would cause Spherus Magna to break up again. Thus, it was determined to create a being that would have the power to control Energised Protodermis and thus keep their planet safe. This being came to be a matoran named Pol, who would be placed inside the Mata Nui robot until he would be ready to assume his destiny and become the ‘Stabiliser of Spherus Magna,’ Cyris.
Pol, as one of the first matorans to be created after the Av-matorans, was granted the knowledge to understand his place in the universe, how he would become Cyris and, once Mata Nui had done his job, ensure Spherus Magna’s safety. As his disguise, he worked as an archivist in Metru Nui. However, one day, a huge earthquake occurred, and Pol was nearly killed by falling debris. He was pulled out with severe amnesia, and could only remember two names – Pol and Cyris. Unsure which one was his actual name, he combined them and became Polsuris. After making a full recovery, he continued working as an archivist and his amnesia made his thirst for knowledge grow ever deeper. He was given a Toa stone by a Toa who was interested in this matoran’s thirst for knowledge but who was also under direct command by Helryx to give Polsuris a stone. Helryx, as the first Toa created, knew of Polsuris’ destiny and that he was actually Pol. Polsuris, however, refused to become a Toa in order to continue his studies. Still, as he was studying down the mines, a spring of Energised Protodermis broke through the cavern’s walls and reacted with the Toa stone, turning Polsuris into the Toa of Energy. This transformation returned a small amount of his memory, but only enough to understand what element he controlled, and what he could do with it. He trained on Mata Nui, where he could master his abilities without risk of casualties. He returned to Metru Nui just as Teridax awakened Mata Nui’s body. After the destruction of the Matoran Universe, he evacuated onto Spherus Magna where he began taking assignments from the ruling body of Spherus Magna, helping set up new colonies and completing missions with the gusto that could only be possessed by the Toa of Energy. He proved his worthiness as a Toa by protecting an entire village from a crumbling cliff by absorbing the kinetic energy off the falling rocks until a Toa of Air could blow the rubble away. It was after this incident that he was recruited into the Order of Mata Nui. Helryx, who still knew of his past, sent him to an ancient temple built by the Great Beings in the far north of Spherus Magna. There, Polsuris was immersed in a massive spring of Energised Protodermis, which restored his memory and granted him a new form and the name Cyris, the Stabiliser of Spherus Magna. Cyris returned to Helryx and told her of his mission, to which she revealed she knew all about. She had already prepared a team of the finest Toa to accompany him to the core. They would be the Toa Kanei, saviours of Spherus Magna.
Unbeknown to both Cyris and Helryx, the Great Beings created a special stone as a back-up policy in case Cyris ever grew corrupt. This stone had the power to take Cyris’ power and place into someone else. It was hidden away in a small ruin in the far south of Spherus Magna, beyond any explored region. As the Toa Kanei set out to depart for their mission, a small but shadowy group of beings descended upon this small temple, heading towards the stone…
Hey MOCpages!! Did ya miss me?
Lets start off with a 360 spin. He's now fully custom!! :D
Close up on the legs. It's alright :P
Back of legs.
Thighs. Used a design I've seen a few times on the 'pages, and I reckon it looks alright.
Back of thighs.
The torso!! I started with building this first (which is something I don't usually do) and I think it looks AWESOME!! XD Oh, and Heartlights FTW!!
Underneath the chestpiece. Nice bonus photo. ;)
Back of torso. Similar to his previous versions.
Lower arms! First time building custom arms, and I think I did alright. Almost like I envisioned it :)
I can still fold my arms. Like a boss.
Oi, wake up!! Still got plenty of work to do. You can have a rest later!
Hmmm? Oh alright.
Ready for action!!
Show me what you got!
Comparison with an Inika build.
I gave him his staff back, with a few minor tweaks.
Sweet, new staff!
None shall pass XD
Come at me bro!
The staff by itself.
Great to see you all again! See you later!
Creator’s Notes: So, I’m back!! :D After what’s been a 7 month hiatus from Lego (O_O) due to school (up until November) and laziness (until the end of 2012) I have returned with a revamp of my Self-MOC! I changed the name cause it’s a tad bit more Bionicle-ly, and Polsuris just sounded weird. This marks the beginning of my revitalisation (at least until uni :P). Oh, and to who ever read the story, I give you my personal thanks :)
Cya next time! And please rate and comment! ;)
