My third entry for the Aho Nui series!
Tacitus (no relation with the Roman senator, but rather with the T-Shirt Mr. Kyle Lamar Myers (better known as FPSRussia) sometimes wears) was a member of Ülec's (my self-MOC, to be posted) Doom Squad, which was an elite unit founded during the Kän-Xi campaign, dedicated to fight the invasion army and support Matoran guerrilla fighters.
Tacitus was a Ko-Toa who distinguished himself from his brethren by having a strong affection for firearms. Even as a Matoran, Tacitus collected and crafted himself primitive swords and spears, or let Po-Matoran craft more complex arms for him. Being a Toa and after having been recruited by the Order of Mata Nui, he would come very often to the armoury to inspect the engineers’ newest inventions. He did so many journeys to Xia to study the natives’ very advanced weapon technology the Order’s leaders began to worry about the Toa’s mental health. He also cared very much about his body armour, wearing only the most protective and sophisticated Proto-Steel plates. Tacitus tested and used countless fire arms, some of them even Axonn would never be able to get his hands on, but the one he relied most upon was his personal Midak Sky-Blaster (he sometimes would wield two of them). As it crystallized that the Doom Squad needed more firepower and knowledge about weapons, the Order did not hesitate and sent directly Tacitus to Aho Nui. He died during the Kän-Xi campaign in quite an ironic manner, being blown up by one of his own experimental explosive cartridges.
Big chunk of text, hopefully someone made it through without passing out.
Back view. Notice how snugly the Blaster fits to the back (literally grown together with weapons >:-D).
Kneeling, weapon at the ready (or not... Bloody Zamor, always rolling away when you need them).
