Yet another official Dark Hunter, this time it's Lariska! After reading 'Birth of A Dark Hunter' (Which is a story about how Nidhiki became a Dark Hunter) I decided I HAD to build Lariska :D So I based her off what I had read :D But as I was reminded in my comments, Lariska actually had a Metru blue and green colour scheme, with a robotic arm, So I guess this is Lariska before her robotic arm :D And I've decided to have her in Stealth armour, to take away that wrong colour sceme factor :P But in V2 I'll add the robotic arm and fix the flaws :D Now here she is :D
About this creation
Occupation: Dark Hunter
Power: Lariska is an agile assassin and one of The Shadowed One's best!
The Shadowed One's Description: "Treat her as you would me... and be sure she will treat you even worse than I do. Her name's Lariska."
Title(s): Dark Hunter, Assassin
Weapon(s): Twin Daggers, Claws
Story: Lariska was Hakann's first challenger upon his initiation to the Dark Hunters. He managed to bring her down, and was surprised to find her back up on her feet and with a knife to his throat the second he turned his back, thinking he had beaten her.
Lariska was among the legion of Dark Hunters sent to capture Metru Nui, which soon developed into the Toa/Dark Hunter War. While she was in Ga-Metru, she and Hakann spotted Toa Nidhiki walking in the abandoned streets. Instead of killing the Toa of Air, Lariska attempted to defect him with the opportunity to betray his fellow Toa and Lhikan. The next night, Nidhiki met with her again and ended up agreeing; Nidhiki planned to lead the full army of Toa into a trap at the Canyon of Unending Whispers, where the Hunters would ambush them from above. However, Lhikan discovered the betrayal, and when Lariska, along with a Dark Hunter legion, revealed their positions, they instead found themselves surrounded by three hundred Toa. The Dark Hunters were forced to surrender and the war was ended. Lhikan sent all the Dark Hunters back to Odina, along with the shunned Nidhiki. The Shadowed One punished Lariska for her failure. She became close friends with Nidhiki after the war.
Once, Lariska accompanied Nidhiki and Krekka to a mission to Nynrah. She distracted a Toa that had come to make a deal with the Nynrah Ghosts, while the other two Hunters stole the prototypes for the Zamor Launchers. She later discouraged Nidhiki from speaking to Roodaka on Odina, though the Toa of Air disregarded her words. That night, she witnessed Nidhiki's mutation. She fled back to the fortress immediately afterward.
Another of Lariska's missions included executing a Toa of Gravity and possibly a Turaga, though the Turaga fled. She had trained herself with levitation Kanoka to simulate zero gravity to prepare for the fight against the gravity powers of the Toa. She killed the Toa and received payment for the job, which was given to the Shadowed One.
When she returned from her mission, Lariska substituted as the head of the Dark Hunters when the Shadowed One and Sentrakh ventured to Metru Nui to find out who had killed Nidhiki and Krekka.
A slighty less awesome shot of Lariska :D I fell I've given her the female look she should have :D Do you agree?
A back shot
Her legs, These turned out great, I'm also happy with her feet :D
A better look at her feet and daggers :)
Her torso design, I used a few designs from Roodaka here, but it does work well :D At least that's what I think :P
Her face, This turned out perfect! Even though there are no offical pictures of her, I figured this was just how she would have looked :D
Her hair :D
Now onto her arm design, The claw design belongs to Dacheronar Grahen, Cheers mate ;)
Her back, I really like how her butt turned out :P
Her twin daggers, In the story she only had these, so that's all I gave her :D
The mandatory Shadowed One picture :D
Phantom: Go, ask her out!
Seeker: N...No, you do it! I'm too scaried!
TOA PHOSPHORUS POSE FTW!!! Anyway that's it :D
Well that's all for today!
My secret project still has a bit to go (I'm still waiting for a BL order :/) Anyway, it should be up next weekend, it'll blow your mind :D
Anyway, my next Dark Hunters will be Dweller, Shadow Stealer and Magmagear :D
Oh and I'll start my Self MOC's soon :D
Ok thanks for viewing!
Don't forget to rate and comment ;)
Till next time ;)
Well thanks, I'm glad you appreciate it, but I only want one like from people, that's really just an extra like I didn't get legitly. Sorry to sound mean, it's just spam is something many people on MOCpages don't like :)
Wow. This reminds me so much of my version of Lariska. It's probably because of the head. Yours is faaar more custom, though. For some reason, the proportions seem a bit off to me, but I can't quite put my finger on it... Also, her arms looks identical, even though one of them is supposed to be completely mechanical. Still, another fantastic job on a Dark Hunter MOC =)
Pretty cool Dark Hunter you got there. Also, question. The 4th toa in my team is finished but I cant decide on an element. Hes mostly black and lime green with silver highlights. What element do you think?
:P I think you just listed them all :P Well I'll see what I can do, I would like to make them all >:D But then again pieces :/ Still, I don't wanna finish my Dark Hunter wave, it's too fun :D Again, I'll see what I can do, thanks for commenting ;)
Dang, took a while before I commented, I always thought she might have a Dume Mask in light green with a metru blue fade, I think Dweller would be a fantastic choice, and if I may, I suggest some other Dark Hunters as well: Airwatcher, Amphibax, Conjurer, Charger, Firedracax, Gatherer, Gladiator, Lurker, Minion, Poison, Primal, Prototype, Ravager, Savage, Silence, Spinner, Tracker, Triglax, and Vengeance, just to name a few.....or a lot....>:} And to just ask again, what about Eliminator, Darkness, and Devastator. Uh, thanks for reading?
Thank you Berial, Always great to hear from you :D I love that you arn't affair to say what you think ;) I think I see what you mean about her not looking too female like, but I don't think it's that bad :D Thanks bro ;)
Thanks everyone! Cheers Oblivious ;) Thanks Max, criticism is always great! :D I know Insanity and Lariska aren't my best, And I know Lariska needs work, so thanks mate ;) In version 2 she will be much better :D I'm with on the 4/5 for them ;) Thanks again ;) Cheers Decker ;) Jan, I don't have a problem, but can you just say that I started this Dark Hunter thing (Everyone has been copying me with it :P) Thanks though ;) Thanks Wertman, she just loves her cake :P I based her off her Wolf, thanks ;) That's a nice idea Frank, I'll see what I can do :D (I'll repost this comment in more detail on one of your MOC's :D) Oh...My...Gosh, That will be epic Pho! And I'm glad you like her :D Thanks ;)
My pondering face palm thing has really caught on! The torso and head are quite good. legs are a bit simple but nice. arms are good too. I finally finished cossy. wait till you see him. Not your average cossy. Just think a cross between Phos, Dystrax and your cossy = Awesome!
im gonna be completely honest, this isn't one of your better mocs. the legs feel VERY out of place, and using basic "titan" (axxon, brutaka, etc.) thighs whould really nail the female look. I feel like the legs went underworked and tyou were rushed. however, the head, arms and body look amazing, if a bit disproportionate. i didn't feel like commenting twice, so here's insanitie's comment.
when i saw the title pic i went "oh, sheesh" because it looked exactly like something BIG in the works. also, id like a better pic of his basic body frame and back, ts a little hard to comprehend. both 4/5.
Pretty good, but it seems I'll have to point out the flaws.... Back could use more armour, and some of the armour/greebles look a bit rushed/messy. Here's a tip: Female shoulders are generally slightly wider than the waist.
Mind adding me too your best friends list?If no thats ok.

awesome! this is almost exactly how i imagined her;D great work:D
Just a reminder, everyone since Lariska's original colour scheme was metru green and blue, and she had a robotic arm, I plan on doing a more accurate version 2 :D With the robotic arm, but I might not do that colour scheme, it won't be easy! So instead (with both this version and the next) I'm going to have Lariska be wearing Stealth armour :D
Thanks everyone! I'll check him out Greg ;) Can't wait to see yours Cheesy ;) I thought the same when I posted her Connor :P Thanks ;) Cheers Legofreak! Thanks Durk Fury! I'm glad you liked that part :P You think so Dragonax? I don't see it :P Thanks for the comment ;) Thanks for that Dark Crusader! It seems I forgot a lot after reading them :P That colour scheme won't be easy! I guess in version 2 (When I add the robotic arm) I'll have he in a new/modern armour, like a stealth suit :D Thanks again ;) I agree Cody, thanks ;) Cheers Sam ;) Yes it is Ryan...So? HAHA Thanks Chaos! It's how I imagined her too :P
A good edition to your dark hunter collection! Story-wise, my only complaint is that she's supposed to have a completely robotic right arm, according to one of those stories. Other than that, great feminine look, head, and feet. Great job!
She is okay, but I think her arms and legs look to short for her body. Still, good job on this, esspecialy the hair. I find it almost impossable to build female Bionicles. Whenever I do, I have to dig out my Roodaka instructions(I have only built one female acctually, and it took forever!).
Nice work, and I do argee w/ L. about the mechincal arm. I think sometime after the fight w/ Teridax (1000 years ago), she did somethime that ticked off The Shadowed One. As punishment, she lost one of her arms and had to get it replaced w/ a mechincal one.
lemme guess, the secret project is the 200 and 300 likes presen. and very good job on er this is actually exactly how i imagined her to look! and iv revamped my the shadowed one so he is much better now, ill be uploadinng him soon alond with cossy
Thanks everyone! I sense you have seen the original Shadowstealer Legobob :P Cheers minute ;) Thanks JP ;) Thanks Raviel!, I'm glad you like her none custom parts :D And thanks Michel! Glad you like that ;) HAHA good one JP :P Thanks ;)
