The dark entity called the Spurius wields a powerful army of dark soldiers to conquer galaxies. At one point in time it ruled 98% of the universe. Here are the facts:_
The origin of this vile being is still a mystery, which will be revealed in time*. The earliest known appearance is when it invaded Dhor with it's dark army. This would still be unheard of if not for Ferix (see other creations). The Spurius Master has mentioned many past triumphs, but none of them have been recorded in history.
The Spurius is rumored to be nearly entirely "dark energy". (not shadow, simply "dark") What is known of the essence of the Spurius is that it can corrupt the mind of virtually anything and take control of any organism or object. The greatest example of this was the Spurius Soldiers.
The army of Spurius Soldiers which the Master entity used is actually entirely made up of the "dark energy" of the Spurius Master. This makes the soldiers extremely tough and durable. One can be brought down, but when in numbers they are virtually unstoppable. This is because the energy they consist of flows through each other, hence constantly regenerating their health.
It seemed that nothing stood between the Spurius' conquering of the universe, except, possibly, Ferix. Ferix was a humble villager of the planet Dhor, but he was brave enough to defy the Spurius. The dark being simply used a fraction of its power to send him hurtling from the planet, never to return. Somehow, he survived.
As the army of Spurius conquered every piece of the universe, Ferix was regaining his memories and getting stronger. By the time the Spurius came to conquer Spherus Magna, Ferix was ready for him. In the battle between good and evil, Ferix and the people of Spherus Magna prevailed. The Evil being and its army were vanquished.
Whether any remnant of this being remains is unknown, but part of its power resides in Ferix.
The Spurius Master itself towered above most existing beings. It primarily wielded twin blades (refer to pictures), but can create any weapon out of itself. It was also naturally strong, and incredibly evil.
No weakness had been found in the Spurius Master, for it lacks no physical skills of mental state (such as ego) and is incredibly intelligent. It would be amazing what could have been accomplished if this entity was on our side.
[However, in the final confrontation, Ferix discovered that the true power of Spurius was the ability to influence anyone or any (living) thing. Using this he was able to defeat it, but this is not a weakness.]
This was the most exciting build in my life so far, with this creation being my biggest Bionicle (and even Lego) MOC. I hadn't made any big plans for this creation in the start; I just emptied out a pile of nearly all my black parts and started building.
I was surprised how poseable I made this MOC! Even though it's really big, It has realistic limb movements, which are also very stable (doubled up supports). There ARE a few new style Hero Factory pieces in here to expand the amount of poseability. I guess its good that those pieces were made after all! :D
My favorite part of this MOC is the feet. The feet feature "toes" which can be individually adjusted so he can stand on uneven, or even lumpy, surfaces. They look cool too. :P
I don't think I'll ever top this MOC, at least not with old style pieces. Building (and playing with) this MOC was an absolute joy. I hope you like it.
