About this creation
For Banjax's The Inhabitants Contest.

Round 2, category: Hunter and Prey.




The two of them.

Disclaimer: The whole nuclear apocalypse thing is not my story or anything, it’s just mandatory for the contest.

Dathar, the Prey.

Name: Dathar (da-thar)
Status: Alive
Gender: Male
Species: Matoran
Element: Shadow/Earth
Alignment: Orderly good
Occupation: Toa
Titles: Toa, Brother, Shadow
Kanohi: Volitak
Weapons: Katana

Much of Dathar’s past is unknown, even to himself. Some say he was born half shadow, others say he was subject to unusual experiments. Whichever, it does not affect his character at all. Dathar is a whole-hearted and courageous Toa does his work with the utmost pride and conviction. Assigned to a “special” wing of the Toa base, he was trained to use his mask and wield his blade. Usually assigned on Reconnaissance, extraction and the occasional assassination missions, Dathar never fails to please his superiors.
He once was assigned on mission to extract a Matoran scientist who was believed to have been dealing with Makuta. Once he located his target he followed him into the suburbs of a city, but also noticed he himself was being followed. After a few minutes of jumping from rooftop to rooftop, the Matoran entered a dark building and a light came on on the inside. He jumped to the building and put his ear to the roof to see if he could hear any conversation. But just then on an adjacent building he saw a dark figure rise. It was tall and muscular and its back and arms were covered in spikes. Dathar recognized the figure instantly as a Skakdi. The Skakdi leapt onto the building and drew his weapon, flashing his hideous teeth at the Toa in a wicked smile. Not waiting for introductions, Dathar rose, drew his sword and leapt at the beast. The battle that followed was fierce but short. A few minutes into the duel the inhabitants of the building below became aware of the intruders presence and started to climb up the walls to investigate. Noticing the incoming Makuta, Dathar tripped his opponent, threw a grappling hook round an overhanging cable and swung into the building below through a window. Dodging a few Makuta, he wrapped his arm around the scientist and jumped out of the building, leaving the Skakdi to the Makuta.
Now aware that he had a price on his head, Dathar continued to do his missions, only observing more caution as he might run into the Skakdi again.
After the nuclear apocalypse, these two hunters have had many encounters and duels but neither has fallen yet.



Here he is. Sorry for some dark photos.



Legs.

Lookin’ awesome.

Derp. Red axle. :P

Rawknyd, the Hunter.

Name: Rawknyd (rock-nid)
Status: Alive
Gender: Male
Species: Skakdi
Element: Shadow
Alignment: Chaotic evil
Occupation: Toa Hunter
Titles: Hunter,
Kanohi: Ruru
Weapons: Blade and hook.

When Rawknyd came of age to be a Skakdi warrior, he went to join the Dark Hunters, as most of his kin had done. Once there, he began his training. After two years of duels and grueling obstacle courses, Rawknyd hadn't been assigned anywhere. Frustrated with his position, he went and saw the head overseer of that district. He demanded to be assigned a mission claiming he was ready for anything. But the overseer just laughed in his face and told Rawknyd he would be assigned when he felt like assigning him. Unable to control his rage, Rawknyd leapt at the overseer and stuck his claws into his belly. The overseer fell flat on the ground, dead. He looked up and saw two Dark Hunters coming at him with spears. Taking one last glance at his work, he turned and ran out of the camp, scaling the fourteen-foot wall in the process. Shortly after, when The Shadowed One heard of this incident, a hunting party was dispatched to locate the runaway. It wasn't long before they found him. It was a terrific chase through the jungle. Rawknyd was more experienced in the wild than his chasers, but they had hounds. With the hounds closing in, Rawknyd had to think of something fast or he was finished. Just then he spotted an empty chasm a few feet ahead. Instinctively he jumped, knowing not where he would land. He was in the air only seconds, but it felt like forever. He kept his eyes clenched shut for he knew this was the end. But then, surprisingly, he landed on solid ground unscathed. Looking back he found he had jumped the entire chasm. The hunters stopped at the edge of the cliff and called to him. They said they didn't want to hurt him and that The Shadowed One wanted him to work for him. Rawknyd thought for a moment but turned down the offer saying he liked working for himself. The Hunters then turned and left. Rawknyd stood and breathed the fresh air. He felt free and independent.
Staying true to his instinct though, he took on the job as a Toa Hunter for hire. Most of his work comes from the Dark Hunters for they know of his skills. There was only one Toa who ever got away from him, and that was Dathar.
The Dark Hunters commissioned him this mission and when he located the prey he found him to be quite a match. The battle that ensued was grueling but short. A few moments into the battle, Dathar tripped Rawknyd and fled the building. Not sure what happened, Rawknyd rose and looked around to find himself surrounded by Makuta. He was about to explain himself when one of them walked up to him and struck him in the mouth, shattering his teeth. After kicking the Skakdi around a bit, the Makuta left him, beaten and sore. Enraged at this humiliation he hired a surgeon to attach headgear to his face to keep his mouth bolted shut. He found it harder to speak, but at least he was spared any further humiliation of a toothless mouth, which for a Skakdi is the greatest humiliation of all.
After the nuclear apocalypse that took place, Rawknyd is still in search for his prey, Dathar, believing he is responsible for his injury. They've had many encounters since, but neither has fallen yet.



Here's Rawknyd!

I really like how he came out.

Legs.

My first Skakdi. Without a Skakdi molded mask too.

Backside.

Lookin' fierce. I gave him a weapon like the Piraka's, two-sided.

He's gonna get ya.

Beware the Hunter.

The two of them again.

Fighting.

Fighting again. ;)

A final shot.

4th Wall:
These were fun to build. Especially Rawknyd, being a mostly black character. I thought it'd be fun to build two hunters as a hunter and prey. Certainly a fun twist for the story. ;)
Enjoy the not so hidden link!
Thanks for looking everyone, and Merry Christmas!

C&C Appreciated

Quoting Toa Phosphorus Love the custom piraka mask (can't remember how to spell the species lol). Great job on both. The torsos are a work of art. Well done.
You got it right. ;) Thanks dude!

Dathar is perfect, though his opponent is somewhat lacking in comparison. They both look good but the skahkdi isn't really reptilian enough.

You should put them in Hunters` Hunted.

Looks great, although neither looks like they'd be hunted. Yes, I know you went with the "hunter hunted" idea, but I feel like that's a bit worn out. Dathar is excellent, and Rawknyd is alright (but I agree with Terilis). Excellent song choice, I love ES Posthumus. ;)

Quoting Coconut Fanatic Pretty epic. Dathar's heartlight kind of looks like a Lantern, like a great big electricity conductor. Rawknyd, I really think that he should be spindlier, for a skakdi, more reptilian. He still looks good, but not like a skakdi (:/
No Skakdi I've seen frankly looks reptilian, but I think I get what you're saying. ;) Thanks!

Quoting Gringat the Repugnant After seeing this, I can proudly proclaim that you are one of the best Bio-MOCers we have right now. I'm amazed by every detail on both of them, with an eye for effective parts placement I envy. What's more, you made a skakdi look gooood. How much for the pair? :P
Wow, thanks man! That really means a lot. :) I'm glad you like them.

Quoting Wertman 8 Awesome! I like Dathar's chest design! I also like the sword; the design was pulled off very well. It's just he looks a bit too... armoured and deadly to be "prey". I like Rawknyd's mask alterations. Very inventive. Although his teeth only look like teeth when you are looking straight on. Great work my friend!
As I said, I thought it'd be a nice approach to have a hunter hunted. And its not supposed to be teeth, its supposed to be like headgear. His mouth is clamped shut. Thanks. ;)

Hai! I like the apocalypse theme, and I love how the Stringer helmet looks on Dathar. It brings a sort of... futuristic feel that most Bionicle parts can't bring to the table. Great job as always, Legofreak!
