This is my Self MOC, Rashzakea the Elemental Gaurdian of Light. (I know my original title was Great Being, but I came up with something better to call it)
About this creation
Rashzakea is of course the Elemental Guardian of Light. He comes from the same planet as Mata Nui, and for most of his 100,000+ year existence he has lived there on the island of Kokoruu Nui.
An island on Mata Nui's planet. Unlike the other islands currently on the planet, Kokoruu Nui was never part of the mainland. From the outside, it doesn't even look like an island at all. It looks like a giant mountain coming up from the sea. This is the barrier surrounding the island itself. It was meant to protect the islands inhabitants and provide the populations of other islands a place of shelter to retreat to in times of danger or natural disaster. the barrier itself is quite bigger than the true island, thus giving the island the appearance as if it were in the middle of a monstrous lake. In spite of the barrier, the island still gets sunlight, although it is shadier than most other islands. It also has normal weather, but far fewer storms. For most of known history Kokoruu Nui was a peaceful, paradise like island.
The Blade of Light: The Blade of Light was one of the 10 Elemental Blades created by Mata Nui. These blades were given to the Great Beings as weapons, and were symbols of those who were leaders of that particular element. Not all of the Elemental Blades are actually sword-like, such as the elemental shadow weapon is actually the Shadow Warhammer, and the elemental weapon of earth is the Earth Battleaxe. After the Great Beings were all but completely driven to extinction, the Elemental Blades were scattered.
The Elemental Gaurdians: The Elemental Gaurdians were the first beings created by Mata Nui, and the first beings to inhabit the planet. Like Mata Nui, the Elemental Gaurdians had the ability to create other beings through thought, but they all relinquished this power after the creation of the Makuta, who would do this instead. The Elemental Gaurdians have unmatchable power over their giver elements (on for each: fire, water, wind, earth, ice, stone, thunder, metal, light, and shadow), and could control every aspect of these elements. Almost all the Elemental Gaurdians left the planet after the creation of the Toa, in search of other cultures and worlds to help keep in balance. They were all but wiped out by Arbiter and his unknown accomplices in a complex plan of unknown origin or motive. Leaving Rashzakea the only known surviving Elemental Guardian.
Mask- Kanohi Kamorahk, mask of infinite improbability, it allows the user to copy and use infinite times the power of any mask they touch, and can use this power on unlimited masks thus resulting in a mask with potentially endless power. However, this masks power severely drains the users stamina every time it's used, and can only use one power at a given time.
Weapons- Elemental Blade of Light, and miniature light shuriken (this was once the cannon he wielded in his matoran form)
Armor Type- Medium
Fighting Skill Level: Final Boss
Special Abilities- In addition to complete power over the element of light, Rashzakea can conjure wings on his back and fly at high speeds exceeding those that matoran vehicles have ever reached. Also, he used to be able to transform to and back from his matoran for Jallek, but has since, lost this ability after gaining his new full power armor.
Personality: Rashzakea is fun loving and likes not being serious. He is quite humble in spite of his high ranking status, and has never been comfortable giving orders to anyone. When in battle, Rashzakea loses all sense of humor and becomes a very serious fighter.
Final Smash: Rashzakea's Final Smash is more simple than that of many beings, but far more powerful. It is known as the Sever Bladed Strike, in which, Rashzakea strikes with his blade seven different times, each strike causing massive damage and obliterating his targets armor. Upon the seventh strike, a massive blast of light energy is released from the blade that goes all directions but with only with about three yards of range.
Jallek: Jallek is what Rashzakea was called as a matoran. Rashzakea did not naturally become a matoran however. Ichzakall managed to defeat Rashzakea, and attempted to kill him, but instead Rashzakea's mask absorbed his power along with much of the Blade of Light's power, turning rashzakea into a simple matoran who had no memory of who he really was. After 500 years of life on Kokoruu Nui (which was ironically his home island in the first place), Jallek left along with Matarhan to become apprentices of Toa Shinaka. After battling Ichzakall and his alliance, Rashzakea put his mask back on, and drew his sword once more, and turned back into an Elemental Guardian (of course, he had severely weakened in his power).
Rashzakea's Other History: Rashzakea, after regaining his status, joined with his old friends and Matarhan and battled Ichzakall for many years. They also fought other evils such as Persona; a dark mirror version of Rashzakea, and Taint; a corrupted Toa with a mask that could bend existence itself. They also met up with many other allies who fought by their side for many a decade. After defeating Odin the Snow Overlord and ending his "Age of Ice" Rashzakea and his team celebrated their greatest ever victory. But then, Makuta Teridax's plan to rule the planet was put into action and completed. Rashzakea and his team left in search of Mata Nui and the mask of life with the help of Halloo, who opened a portal to a planet that Mata Nui may have landed on. rashzakea and his team now search for Mata Nui on an unknown planet.
Apparently you've made a new form for him, and a rahi/plantlike species for him too. Past rashzakea was inspired off of jallek and from before he gained his light powers, oh and anyone who wants to see his reviews and new mocs: http://www.youtube.com/user/Rashzakea.
Looks good. I like the overall color scheme of it. Although because he's a guardian of light, the black seems odd, plus with the wings... meh. Seems more like just a Toa of Light. For design, the legs are cool, although I don't like the shortness of the lower legs, and the widness of the armor on the upper legs, also the armor going past the knees. The arms and weapons look nice. The wings... I'd say don't match on this MOC. So maybe lose them? And the feet seem fine, although maybe standing straight up might seem too much on the front. Nice body design, but I can't see what it looks like from the back so NO MORE OF THIS COMMENT!
