Mattee 3.0
The original Bionicle Plague Doctor and my official SelfMOC, Matteo
About this creation
Matteo always has and still is what I consider to be my Self-MOC. I don't buy into the whole concept of it that much but after much consideration after the fact of building him, I had decided if I had to have a self MOC, it would be him.

The backstory for Matteo is rather extensive and not quite fleshed out. The short version is that matteo is part of an ancient race that had the ability to become immortal through a ritual that would make people immune to aging, resilient to disease(but not completely immune), and give increased but no super human strength speed and stamina. is people were wiped out by invaders and he fled before being able to receive immortality. He spent years searching for it and was able to obtain it, but about 30 years later than was normal to where he had reached the age of 50 before immortalizing. It was after this time Matteo traveled and studied to be an apothecary and an expert martial artist. He also trained to be an assassin. Being immortal meant he had many men's lifetimes to study and hone his skills.
The most notable powers Matteo his are that of his smoke abilities. Using his own blood as a foundation, Matteo materializes blades from crimson smoke. This allows him to materialize and dematerialize his "Blood letters" instantly, though if done too frequently, he experiences the symptoms of blood loss. His other smoke ability is called "scent intoxication" where he is able to put anyone who inhales it into a drunken stupor. Matteo is a main character in the comic and short story series Witching Hour In this series Matteo is portrayed more as a good guy, though it is explained that he had a complicated past where this wasn't always the case. In this series Matteo has a runin with a nasty beast plaguing the city he was residing and employed in simply known as Plague who after an intense battle infected Matteo with the plague. The reaction with Matteo's body turned the plague into another form of smoke ability. This new ability appeared as varying degrees of black or grey smoke that had varying degrees of effects on people. In its most intense form it infected people with the plague and they would most likely die of the disease as it was resistant to medications. In its slighter form it would cause irreversible psychosis of the mind. This was a trait Matteo in his lighter years rarely used, but was a favorite of his in what was known as The Age of Malice where once again Matteo fell from the path of good and helping others to pursue more selfish endeavors through cruel yet effective tactics. It wasn't until the help of an old friend that he found his way back from these dark pitiful times and repented for his evil ways by once again being an apothecary to the poor and weak, and an assassin of those who would do harm to good folk.

And yes that's the short version. XD

Quoting Chopperskull (Jon) Oh man do I remember HIM ! :D You incorporated so much into this, and I really like it. You really did an amazing job on the mask/head, especially with the hat and eyes. The amount of details on him and his accessories is incredible ! I can't even find a way to criticize this, because all the weird and creative designs work soo well on him :D Amazing mocs as always !
Thank you Choppersskull. The eyes are really goggles that he has up over his mask. They're not the actual placement of his eyes. The red axle in the mask is where his eye holes would be, and the goggles would fit over that, but in lego I couldn't get that to work. :P Thanks for commenting, liking and all that stuff. :P

Quoting Jeremy S. Great one. I love all the minute details that make up this MOC, bust most of all that dragon face makes a nice plague doctor mask. Isn't that the kind of mask that the doctors during the black death would stuff with herbs to "filter out" the plague?
Thanks, and yeah they are.
Quoting Banjax 2077 @ Jermey Yes, they would put herbs and insenses in the beak. As for the moc well basicly what I said on DA.
They'd put things like rose pedals mint and other pleasant smelling things in the beaks and would also cover up their skin with thick oil coated coats. The plague doctor attire was kinda like a primitive hazmat suit...it didn't work though, they still caught the plague and died. :XD:

Quoting Gringat the Repugnant I should give Gringat pockets.
Maybe you should. I would like credit though. I think this is a unique enough idea that I'd like credit for if used elsewhere. :) Gringat looks like an important guy who needs pockets to carry stuff in. :P

Quoting Tabaris CarpeNocte Dave, spelndid work! This v3 of yours really makes it look completed! I've been lookign and not nothing to say feedbackwise, as it is just too cool!
Thanks Iggy, means a lot to me coming from you.:D Matteo is very nearly at that stage of completion I think. There's less and less I feel I can do to improve upon his designs, which is the whole point of version MOCing I'd say.
