An entry for the Toa of Light Category in the 2011 Bio-Thon from Team T.A.N.!
About this creation
Name: Arken Species: Matoran Race: Av-Matoran Occupation: Toa of Light, Professor Kanohi: None Tools: Bladed Sheild Claw, Light Infused Exo-Armor Status: Alive Bio:
Arken was posed as a Ko-Matoran on Stelt before Teridax's takeover. He lost both his arms in a machine accident and was too poor to buy or make prothetics. He was forced to take on the life of a beggar, despite his great intellect.
After Teridax took control of the Universe, Arthaka VII went out in search of all the Av-Matoran he could find. Arken was the first, and Arthaka turned him into a Toa, and also made him a suit of armor out of a discarded Exo-Toa to help him.
Now, on the reformed Sphereus Magna, Arken spends most of his time in Ko-Maras, teaching the young Matoran and Agori as a Professor of Physics.
Good little Bio incorporating him into my story...now...ONTO THE MOC!! :D
His design came after seeing if the Piraka head could be used as some kind of mask or something, and then the Exo-Suit idea came to mind.
I tried to use an unorthadox style to attach the arms, so as to make his lack of real arms stand out. He seems a bit gangly when just standing there...
But the Epic Poses are EPIC!!!!! :D
And...here's a preview... 10 points to whoever guesses this V2. :D
