The colossus are dominant species on the Comet of Treads, being born from the very essence of Treadanus Nui himself. The kanohi powers have imbued to their genetic data during their creation by Treadanus Nui, making them holders of varying kanohi powers, however without using any masks. Their appearance is somewhat brutal: triple-jointed legs, agile body, hard armor and bulky torso. Their heads are somewhat smallish, with large eyes, small mouths and top of the head being armored like a helmet. They are naturally strong and large in size, reaching 5-7 times the height of a normal toa. Due to their size, they cannot do much small tasks and instead cooperate with other species on the comet, including the Ardon and dash owls, giving in exchange shelter from the harsh winds on the comet. Their personality varies, however rarely being evil, at lowest they are usually frustrated and ignorant. They respect those with fighting skills, having commonly a certain 'royal' behavior. The dream of all colossus' is to get on Spherus Magna, which was their promised home by Treadanus Nui. However being stuck on the comet, many have tried to use their powers to fly through space to the planet, however only 1 has survived, which was Thendorar, nephew of the elder colossus.

Agrotis was the very first colossus to be born on the comet. Treadanus Nui created him to be his follower after he would pass. Being the first, he got the largest amount of kanohi powers known to be owned by a colossus. The first years were confusing for him, but he started to settle to a place in the end.
During thousands of years, more colossus was born by random on the antiprotodermic waters on the comet. Agrotis, having the most experience, was the leader, larger than any colossus, unmatched in power and very wise, sharing justice among the colossus.
Time has done no scars to him, making him still appear fairly energetic, even being extremely old.
To be his domain, he built with bare hands a temple around a gate found on Treadanus Nui's side. The gate remains stuck locked. Otherwise the temple is a shelter and a meeting place. On the temple's walls are ancient writings written by Agrotis himself, telling about the history of the colossus. More stories are told by Agrotis sometimes during meetings.
Shortly after Monarth starting his guardian duty, Agrotis found a hole on Treadanus Nui's armor and sent Ignis, his pet owl inside to research the area. That way he found connection to Monarth, using Ignis to deliver messages to each other. The two bonded a friendship, however they have never met each other. He could not use his telepathic powers, because he had no idea of Monarth's appearance or location, so the link was impossible to connect.
Being the leader, he has to sometimes make unethical decisions, however tries to avoid them as much as he can. He was gifted with kindness, which however often buries under his seriousness. He had to be serious, to be believable to lead the others.
He has gained a lot of respect from the other colossus, however some have thought that he's simply too old and new blood should take the leadership. Dominating young challengers, however, he's still been victorious.
Right now, he's thinking the hope for the colossus' lies in Treadanus Nui, and that's why he's been researching the outer body on the comet's surface. In the end, he found a small hole on the top corner of the gate in the temple. Containing a small tunnel, Ignis can't fly through it. Agrotis is trying to figure something else on that part...
Agrotis: I am (Optimus Prime) Agrotis!
Pose in memory of the original Agrotis.
I have rebuilt one of my oldest and favorite characters and biomoc, Agrotis :D This is I guess V3, however practically a complete rebuild. I loved using once more the Onewa metru weapon for the eyebrow design I invented 4 years ago :D His story has completely changed, the first one being child-gibberish from my beginner times >_> He's a very important character to me from my roleplay times and can be practically considered my secondary self-moc, however I have not decided anything on that part.
Design wise, after finishing I got stability problems with him, resulting in supporting his knees and shoulders. On the knees, it doesn't look the best, but is the most efficient for poseability. The shoulder support became one of my most advance, so I likely will develop it further some time on some other moc.
Also, I have gained new sets! :D Gadunka, Tuma, Mahri Nuparu and Mahri Matoro. You can guess what the Kanohi Tryna means :] The sets have lots of great parts, so something new will come another day :]
