Argentum - Toa of Silver
"I swear by Mata Nui, the Order, and all of the Great Beings, to uphold my duty come hardship, toil, stress and physical challenge. I promise to uphold the tenets and the three virues, and I shall battle plague and sickness wherever I travel. This I swear." ~Part of the Oath of the Toa Virulae
About this creation


After losing his wife to a deadly antidermis plague, Argentum joined the OoMN to avenge her death - with Makuta Blood. His power over silver only helps contribute to his paladinic ways. He is devoutly focused on purity of sprit and body, and persues the letter of the law with almost fanatical devotion. The corruptness and shadowy nature of the Makuta disgust him.

He has enough charisma for twenty full-blown celebrities! A firm, undisputed leader of the Toa Virulae, he and others swore an oath to Mata Nui to battle plagues wherever they spread.

Argentum is lucky. His powers over silver means he can destroy plagues like nobody's business, but his powers will not affect anyone bigger than a fikou spider. He's often called in on epidemics where the civilians have not yet been evacuated.

Before joining the Toa Virulae, Argentum toured the world as a werewolf hunter. He was on the chase of the notorious Moonstalker when the plague struck his island and claimed his wife. ((Do Toa even get wives?? They do in my universe :D ))

Weapons and Tools:
-A silver longsword.
-A heavy shield.
-A Kanohi Kiril
-Huge boots and heavy armour.

Powers:
-Able to manipulate silver.
-Has extremely powerful grasp of electricity powers.
-Is extremely powerful at thermal powers.
-MASK: Able to repair destroyed buildings and machines even from a pile of rubble. Since riots and plagues so often go hand in hand, this is useful. He often stays behind after the plague has been averted to help rebuild an affected city.
-Can destroy single-celled organisms with ease, while leaving larger ones unhurt, thus, he can rid a matoran or toa of disease with a touch.
-Cannot destroy viruses - including antidermis virus.














((If I ever RP him, imagine him having a thick German accent :P))

-The Life Counter is one of the wierdest, most useless looking pieces Bionicle has ever given us... so naturally I wanted to play with it. :)

-His design is completely original. I don't often go titan-sized, so this is pretty much as big as my normal MOCs get... Although since reorganising my LEGO workstation, I now have room for bigger MOCs. A tabletop makes all the difference, hrm?

-Inspired by Paladins from the classic game: Neverwinter Nights. My Dad steals my computer all the time to play it while I'm MOCing, and I guess his Paladin character kinda rubbed off on my psyche...

-Argentum is the Latin name for Silver.

- Silver is an odd medical thing. It kills pathogens, and not bigger tissues, and scientists are still trying to find out exactly why this is, apparently...

Oh my... Gringat... You have no idea how happy I am I found this, it's like I'm looking back into my past :D This very creation was what got me back into Bionicle years ago :D If I hadn't seen this, or you hadn't posted it, I wouldn't have been inspired to build Bionicles and I wouldn't have been posting my Bionicle MOC's today :D Thank you Gringat! I had no idea it was you who inspired me, thank you ;) Great work the MOC itself too :D It's a work of art!

I just was looking in this folder and I didn't realize that you made Argentum in Toa form. I thought you only made him for the contest.

if you going to revmap him, you should take away the life counters, but use the same music.

This a excellent moc u have, it looks great its got a nice element. Its very custom like alot of your other mocs and that what helps your mocs stand out also their uniqueness!(is that even a word, if not it should be) but once again nice job can't wait to see more!

I've already commented in BM. Btw, have you found a theme for Fenrir? I can't think of one.

Quoting John the Imaginative I guess that reasoning is solid, but still, it would make more sense if you named him in German.
I did look: The German names all sound a bit cheesy really. Silber? Nah. . Are you gonna rate him?

Quoting John the Imaginative Why did you not name him in German. I'm not the best speaker of German either.
Because Argentum sounds awesome! And Latin is just as dead to the Germans as it is to us.

Quoting John the Imaginative With all this Deutsch-theming. Warum nennst du nicht im Deutsch?
Uhh... Ich bin nicht die besten Sprecher... Was ist das auf Englisch, bitte? -----And actually, Paladins are French. Think on this.

Probably something similar that they have their own word for that I can't be bothered to make up a word for, yes. Since Bionicle IS for little kiddies... A lot of THAT sort of stuff's been left out... If you ever read any of my fic's I DEFINITELY haven't... heheheh...
