About this creation
MOC STATUS: DISASSEMBLED
Much about Lonkuís past is unknown except that he was living on the northern continent before becoming a Toa. During his travels as a toa, he helped defend a matoran village in the southern islands from a pack of tunnelers that had gone insane. He also at one point in time met Toa Bomongu. He transformed into a turaga when he sacrificed his toa power to heal a village of Onu-Matoran in the southern chain that had a prototype virus created by Makuta Vamprah unleashed on their village. The virus caused varying effects such as: Matoran being turned into an intangible form, several lost their arms while the rest had gone into a coma like state. Lonku was able to undo the side effects of the virus by finding a special type of stone that was rumored to exist in that region. That stone allowed Lonku to amplify his toa power and successfully healed that village. 2,000 years after becoming a turaga Lonku was attacked by Vanisher and Lariska, who were here to find that rumored stone not knowing that Lonku had used it, which caused the stone to disintegrate. Having learned that info from Lonku the two dark hunters dipped is face into a small pool of energized protodermis causing his mask to become his face. After that event the dark hunters left and Lonku kept watching over the village until the migration to Spherus-magna.
Lonku as a toa had a great mask of rebounding and a spear with the tip being made of protosteel (he found this tool in an abandoned village on the island just below Odina)
With his mask of Rebounding he was capable of throwing the spear from a secluded area and having it come back to him. As a turaga his Great mask of rebounding transformed into the noble mask of rebounding and his spear turned in to a walking stick that could be used for offense and he could still throw it but prefers not due to his weakened mask power. Even though his mask is fused to his face he can still access its power
