Sanguinus - Toa of Mercury
Is he master of his element, or is his element mastering him?
About this creation


Name: Sanguinus
Race: Matoran (Toa)
Group: OoMN - Toa Virulae
Element: Mercury
Location: Daxia


(Funny Farm, Neuroticfish)

Sanguinus is the fifth and final member of the Toa Virulae recruited before the Destiny War. Thia found him on the southern coast of Stelt - the unfortunate culprit of an accidental mass manslaughter of local matoran villagers. Another OoMN operative called Kahrgrad had forwarded a summons for Thia. Sanguinus' elemental mercury had contaminated the water, and the fish they relied on for sustenance, killing many of them. Sanguinus had no idea he had caused it until Thia told him.

To atone for his crimes, Sanguinus agreed to join the Order and the Toa Virulae. He swore an oath to counter plagues and pandemics, and was introduced to the other three members.



Like Anorex, Sanguinus' element poisons him. He cannot die of it, but he suffers symptoms - namely violent mood swings, nausea and acute memory loss. He is clinically insane and unstable. His left arm is almost entirely composed of a Protosteel-mercury alloy, while most of the rest of him is tinged with cinnabar (Mercury Sulphides.) Thia made his outer armour react to stop him dripping and let him solidify.


The tank on his back is full of pure liquid mercury. Attempts have been made to disconnect it from his brain, but all of them would be invariably fatal to him. His mask cannot be removed either, as it is connected to the tank. This means that the order could not give him a new mask power. Night vision is iseful, but there are better ones for this line of work.


The launcher on his shoulder fires balls of mercury at his enemies which splash on impact. He can send enemies insane with this, but most large enmies the Toa Virulae fight have no minds to speak of anymore. He can also manipulate it to rip tissues apart.


His claw is used to manipulate Mercury. Like Anorex, he can also kill by injecting his element into someone's brain.


His sword has no powers. It is of a similar make as Hewkii Mahri's.

POWERS:
-Can manipulate Mercury.
-Noble Rau allows night vision.
-Can send others mad, kill them or poison them by touching.
-Able to contaminate vast bodies of water (has its uses).
-Weak grasp over electricity and strong thermal powers.

EQUIPMENT:
-Sphere launcher.
-Longsword.
-Noble Kanohi Rau
-Mercury Claw.
-Mercury Tank.

WEAKNESSES:
-Frequently forgets who or where he is and what h is meant to be doing.
-Prone to violent psychotic outbusts.
-Very toxic to any environment he enters.

Comparison shots with Puhana and Vastus.



Mercury has always looked to be one of the more interesting elements for me to make.

Sanguinus: an olde englishy sort of name which has connotations with blood, as a referrence to his powers over alchemical quicksilver. In myth, he should be able to grant immortality, cure all disease and turn base metals into gold (But we all know this is Aura's power). In essence, cinnabar is the Philosopher's Stone.

Torso is based on a metru body.

I was inspired by how the Midak Syblaster bullets look EXACTLY like liquid mercury.

i also used to have a toa of mercury, metroplex i think his name was if you want to check him out. it was sort of prototypish so i didnt really work too hard on it and i really didnt like it too much, in fact i wasnt really gonna add it, and sanguinus sort of reminded me of metroplexx, although sanguinus is way cooler and metroplex was a mere prototype of what was rambling around inmy head.
