Argentum, Turaga of Silver
Argentum. Next to Takanuva, the noblest toa ever to walk Spherus Magna. How the mighty fall...
About this creation
Here we go! This is for Toa Phosphorous' Periodic Toa contest - just in time! I only started to build this guy a few hours ago, so it's quite last-minute! I didn't want to join the contest, originally, but, now it's my holiday for the enxt two weeks, I felt a bit more able.
Argentum is already a character of mine; a toa from the OoMN's Toa Virulae. Here's the original. To recap his MU story so far, his wife died to an antidermic plague. He went to the Weavelords for help, and was given the power over silver by Lord Reglas using a device known as a Starforge (this is kept secret, however. Reglas is a very mysterious character). Argentum becomes a powerful toa and after a while of makuta and werewolf hunting, joins the OoMN and a group of their's called the Toa Virulae, which battle plagues, etc.

Now we come to what happens once Teridax takes over...

Gender: Male
Species: Matoran (G1)
Race: Ta-Matoran
Occupation: Werewolf-Hunter, Mentor
Title(s): Elder, Turaga
Mask: Noble Kiril, Mask of Regeneration
Prevailing Element: Silver (via Starforge)
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Typical Weapon(s): Staff and Electrified Sword
MOC Status: Disassembled
Era: End of Reformation War -> Death



(E-Nomine - Heilig (Holy))

As an OoMN member, Argentum was actively involved in the wars against both the dark-hunters and then the Destiny War. On Spherus Magna, he was also in many skirmishes.



Circumstances brought him to face a skrall legion more or less single-handedly. Overwhelmed, Argentum unleashed a silver nova blast upon them. Those closeby were galvanised, electrocuted and burned. As the blast continued, an insidious reaction occured as atomic silver reacted with proteins from the skrall's bodies, ripping out nitrogen and oxygen. Salt in the rocks around them burst out and the entire area became entrenched in chlorine gas. Argentum was the only survivor, and, after unleashing the blast, lost most of his powers. He was a turaga. Gringat found him when coming to repair the damage to the air he had caused, and took him to refuge on Korrothis.



Argentum was one of the founding members of the Knights of Spherus Magna, serving as a mentor to most of it until it became too large. He still had a fair measure of his powers, and his mask became a noble Kiril. He lost his ability to repair protodermis and large structures, could no longer perform nova blasts or any of his heavier powers, but could still manipulate silver objects and generate heat and electricity.



His sword and shield changed with him during the blast. His shield became his staff of office (note, I tried to make his staff look a bit like his old shield) and his sword shortened. It also had the capacity to store electricity and fire it in large bursts. (Gandalf, anyone?)



When the Soulplague set in, Argentum caught it. He was one of only a handful of beings to ever be affected and live. After being incapacitated for over a year he finally reemerged, and continued to serve the crippled KoSM.



With the knowledge that Mata-Nui had died and after the pain of the Soulplague, like all other survivors, Argentum began the slippery, jagged descent into madness. Becoming increasinly obsessed in the continuation of the matoran race, he turned back to his old quest - destruction of the Lycanthropes.



The War of the Weave passed him by as he and his apprentice stalked the mountainous southern regions of Bota Magna in search of the werewolf clans. Many fell to them. The Toa Code did not apply to his glatorian apprentice, and he himself felt he had already left it behind.



Argentum's crusade came to a fatal ending when a strange being known only as the Neverending Night allied itself with the werewolves. The shadowy figure ambushed Argentum and his apprentice and killed them under a cloak of shadow. Not soon after, the werwolves began to move north, to Nilmador's Refuge...

Anyway, more SM storyline! Fun fun!


Argentum with Kana and Aura, my other two periodical characters.


With Poliaz, my first turaga.

Good luck in the contest everone else, with the matoran of oxygen!

Quoting Adam Toh Re-read it. Werewolves eh?
The werewolves from MoonWerewolfAir's old storyline, and Makuta Razirik, were added to mine pretty early on. The Hynaks are descended from Moonstalker, for example. Plus, yes.
