Got inspired by Ben Cossy's version of Owl the Owl's selfmoc Owl, and decided to build a gunman. I'm actually adding the species to the Comet of Treads line. I kind of regretted not doing so after posting Hadie. I pretty much start to have enough characters to begin a storyline. What do you think? :)
Lopus belongs to species known as Ardon on the Comet of Treads. These bipedal creatures are slightly smaller than toa, but their bodies consist of a weird protodermis and antidermis mixture, which gives them a tremendous power in their bodies. Though, only few of them can actually manage to use this power, but still at high risk. Lopus is one of them. As for the Ardon's small size, they can hardly put up with the wind of the comet. That's why they live along the colossus. In exchange for shelter, they do smaller tasks that the large colossus can't do themselves.
Lopus is the older brother of Hadie, looking after his active sister, who sometimes doesn't know what she's doing. He's a fairly causious character as he fears his own power. The 'dermis mixture in his body formed extremely strong weaponry on his back and legs and using these is dangerous to him.
He can hardly cope with the leg and shoulder weapons, but the long railgun is what he fears of triggering accidentally as he doesn't know how to fire it.
He's shot it only once and that time he dug a trench while flying backwards along the ground. Because using his weaponry is dangerous, he mostly relies on his spear.
Lopus really cares about his sister as he'd do anything to protect her. He's very honest person, but sometimes feels bit unconfident. Still his personality has made him and his sister close to the leader of the colossus.
Quoting Gringat the Repugnant
Wow. Very clever limb designs here. But... this is small for the comet? Yikes.
Most creatures of the comet have a very large size (much bigger than teridax in the first movies), because as the comet travels at high speed, there's a neverending fierce wind on the comet. The large size is to put up with the wind. The Ardon however are slightly smaller than toa, and therefore need a shelter from the colossus. So yes, small on the comet, average on Spherus Magna. If I'm making a story, I'd be creating an encounter with the colossus and the people of Spherus Magna. Could work as an RP aswell at certain point.
