Altered One
I think I shall start building characters that go along with my story, and this one seems like a good place to start.
About this creation
Well, I found something else that can provide nice natural white light, so I'm trying it out here. Tell me what you think, I would like to see how this one works.

This guy... You really don't want to know where such an idea came for him. I am strangely attached to him though, I'm not sure why. I might want to mention now that this guy is just something to show what the Shadow Beings look like. It is not supposed to be taken as an individual MOC, only showing a general idea of what they look like, (Mainly because they are all different and unique). Anyway, hope you like him.

Now, to try and create a bio for this...
"Altered Ones. A name the Shadow Beings gave themselves. They say the name as though there is still life in those cold empty shells of death... As though they are still themselves... As though they have not fallen to the lies of the enemy. These creatures are nothing more than dead lifeless puppets. They pretend that they are alive, but even they see that is no more then a lie." Esh, talking to a young new entrant to the Garden.

Species: Varied Species, All Dead and Infected With Evil
Element: None, Some Stronger Ones Possess Shadow
Powers: Most Have the Ability To Shadow Walk, Most Can Also Create Shadow Barriers, A Few Can Take the Mind of Other Creatures and Control Them
Home: Southern Black Forest
Bio: After The Changing Shadow Beings came into existence. They are created when The people of the Garden begin to listen to The Voice, an evil essence that possess the mind of others and destroys them.
Becoming a Shadow Being is a slow process, starting with your mind beginning to allow dark thoughts in. From there it is a slow down hill slide to insanity until finally your body cannot take it any longer. Up until that point however the process can be reversed if the being wishes not to become Altered.
Once your body begins to change you have completed the process and it moves quickly from here. Your body becomes disfigured and a putrid smell begins to emanate from you. Half way through your body changing, armor becomes a problem. Most beings that change rip off their armor because it begins to burn at their skin. Once the full change has occurred though armor can be worn again. However it can be hard to get armor to fit on such a disfigured and destroyed body so armor is often found on these creatures in a mismatched fashion.
Another thing that occurs in all of this is that, slowly and painfully, your soul begins to fade and break away from the body. Once the Changing process has finished there is no longer and soul of essence of the original being left. There is but the basic urge to survive and run. This is what makes these creatures so evil. Once The Voice possess their mind, they become as mere puppets, lifeless and dead.


Well now, don't you just feel all warm and fuzzy? No? Hmm, why would that be? Anyway, on to the photos!



Now, like I said, each one of these guys are different and unique. Not all have tails, or a weapon arm. It all depends on what the previous being was. In this case the being was a Toa or Glatorian with one arm replaced with a weapon.



Well, let's try some poses on for size, eh?



Cation, blade is sharper then it looks.



Epic pose! Oh yeah, did anyone notice the Hero Factory Bones wrapped around the upper torso? Well, that is actually his...



Other Arm! This arm is fun because it can switch to both sides! I love that arm lol.



Epic pose! (Kinda XD)



Legs. Sorry about the dark photo...



Torso. Once again, dark...



Insert evil laughter here.



Attack Pose!



Throwing his arm at you.



Bowing.



Waving goodbye!


Creator's Comments: Well, after I was taking apart Shinuy I was looking at the torso and thought, "Hmm, I could use that for a Shadow being". So this is what happened. I actually enjoyed building him and I am terribly sorry for the very dark photos. Oops, out of time, gotta go.

Bye all! Thanks for viewing!

Quoting Garrett A. Another one like this? Oh, goody! (in case you are wondering where I learned THAT phrase, let's just say I have probably watched every last Looney Tunes episode involving Tweety ever aired on Cartoon Network XD)
Well, not really like this, nor does it follow my story, but it's story is a rather creepy one, which accommodates the shadowy look it carries about it. And ain't nothing wrong with a little looney toons. We all know we lived off of that Saturday mornings as kids XD

Quoting Garrett A. This one is good as well! He seems very shadowy (for lack of a better term), and I like the Piraka head, it gives him a skeletal feel. I only got one of those guys :(. I am also enjoying this overall storyline even though I have only seen a little of the plot. I also like that uncurling arm, it fits a build with this feel. Overall, great!
Thank you. I quite liked the skeletal look for this guy. I'm glad you are liking the story, there is quite a bit more to it that I have not added yet. The dorsal fin is definitely my favorite part of this guy. Funny, you commented on this just as I finished another strangely shadowy MOC, maybe I'll actually upload that one soon :)

Quoting StoveTop Creator Clever, creepy concept... brilliant build... terrific tail! Hey, I see you have discovered tires too. Between me and my 2 daughters we have loads of them... came in all sorts of little baggie sets! I finally found a better use for them! Cheers! :)
Thank you. I have just recently found that old Lego racers board game in my basement and it turns out that those tires are in there! I only had two before that. They have lots of uses apparently.

Quoting Clever Crowe Gale I hope you like this one, because it is my FAVE among all your Works thus far. I love the solid-color goodness with white skull as accent, but most especially LOVE the prehensile tail and dorsal arm! Sweet stuff, there. I have never tried the 'thickening' technique you used by adding tires to the tail between the friction joints, but seeing how well they worked here, I'm tempted to! Will cred u if I do so, o' course =) CHEERS!!!
Ok, it may take a minute for the fact that you actually liked this MOC to sink in. I am stunned you consider this your favorite, but I have just now finished a build that, in my opinion, is my best. I was personally hoping that the tires would give it a more organic look, but it seriously cuts down on the "slippage" between the socket and the ball. Thank you much!

I do like the whole concept of these 'altered ones.' About the build, the only thing I don't really like is that it looks like he has a pot belly, with that metru armour. Other than that, it looks sinister! >:)

Excellent build! I can't call it nice or something like that because that would ruin the whole... essence. It captures general 'shudder'.

Thank you all, much appreciated. I was not going for a standard build though, I wanted him to be different, and unusual. Apparently I achieved that.

This guy is awesome! Maybe most of people don't understand him due to his rareness, but, as a proud Mad-like MOCer, I must say that you have made a great creation. I really like the torso, with that other arm and big... back. The overall MOC is strange, but well-designed, a very difficult thing to achieve. Great job!
