My two main characters of LOK, in matoran form. Story is updated from the very beginning to present day Tempesta Celestis.
About this creation
Name: Xalos Gender: Male Species: Matoran Race: Ko-Matoran, Poliazi Occupation: Captain of the Poliaz City Guard Title(s): Captain, Sir Element: Ice Kanohi: Powerless Great Matatu MOC Status: Assembled
(The Offspring - The Kids Aren't All Right)
Xalos was the captain of Poliaz's City guard. He despised Poliaz' personal guard, and always put the people first. In fact, his hatred of authority put himself in danger of becoming outcast multiple times, as his agression towards General Vanembar and the Poliaz guard was not subtle.
Xalos believed in justice, and had an iron-hard sense of right and wrong. He had Gratigan as a deputy, who was very good at detective work. He and Xalos frequently pierced Poliaz's criminal underground. On one such occasion, Xalos rescued Gringat from becoming a member of one of the criminal gangs in the city. Gringat gladly lent his services to the Guard. Soleku and Eki joined after a similar story. Xalos and Soleku frequently got into arguments, although he tolerated her mainly due to the fact that she was Gratigan's girlfriend.
When Vanembar launched the scheme which ended in the creation of the Toa Vanembar, Xalos was deliberately chosen to be the group's leader. The team was repeatedly sent abroad for missions, if only to keep the abrasive Xalos out of Vanembar's hair. Xalos and Gringat became good friends.
Xalos' axe as a matoran did have elemental powers. It was imbued with crystals of elemental ice from Korrothis, and delivered a powerful punch that could freeze someone in mid-step. This was useful when a criminal decided to resist arrest and run.
Xalos later went on to become Icelord of Korrothis. After the reformation of Spherus Magna, Xalos joined Gringat on the colonisation mission to Tempesta Celestis. It is not known what happened to him on Tempesta Magna, but most assume he was killed by Ezru (TS's main antagonist) while trying to defend Gringat.
Name: Gringat Gender: Male Species: Matoran Race: Le-Matoran, Poliazi Occupation: Handyman(formerly), Weaponmaker (formerly), Island Defense Manager Title(s): none Element: Air Kanohi: Powerless Great Kualsi MOC Status: Assembled
(Jonsi - Animal Arithmetic)
Gringat originally lived on the southernmost peninsula of the Northern Continent, and moved to the Island of Poliaz after it was formed. Back then it was under the control of Makuta Raximoras, who initiated a rebuild for the matoran into the long-armed form they had later on. Gringat worked as a general repair man and gardener for the other matoran, but was tired of this life and left to the island of Xia after a while to persue a career in weaponsmithing. It went well to begin with, and his GringatTronics line was successful, until he was outdone by a matoran named Ferrum and, bankrupt, went back to Poliaz.
On Poliaz again, Gringat's shop was raided by a gang of what little equipment he had left. Stupidly, he joined the gang's rival, but thankfully was rescued by the Island Guard before things got too hectic. he and Xalos became good friends, and Gringat turned his mechanical expertise towards defense of the island. He had an almost unlimited supply of rescources from Lord Poliaz.
Later, Gringat became one of the Toa Vanembar along with Xalos. He was advised not to, but this was merely due to the fact that Vanembar did not want Gringat as a toa - he was far more useful as a matoran. Nevertheless, he did become a toa, and one of Polaiz's guardians.
Later on, Gringat became the Korrothen Lord of Air, and is the one who made the island of Korrothis airborne. Later on, on a reformed Spherus Magna, he spent ten years with a team of matoran and agori to make the island spaceworthy, and launched a colonisation scheme to a place named Tempesta Celestis. The Celestis' grim records show that Gringat was killed by a malevolent being known as Ezru 733 years after the colony's foundation - over 5000 years ago. His spirit broke apart into what we now know as the Cyclonoids - vicious creatures of air and metal which delight in chaos.
