A man who regrets what he's done. I built this guy right after I chibi-ed Mr. Z. A lot of Mr. Z's parts went into making this guy. I'm pleased with him, especially his chest. Enjoy your viewing!
About this creation
This is one of those old MOCs that I need to upload so I can delete the pictures. With that being said, he is a good MOC, even if he is not 100% custom. Sue me, but I did not make his forearms custom. Now, I will let Mr. Z explain to you, the story, of, "The General!" Oh, and by the way, I made up the story as I typed, if you wonder why it is so cliché or cheesy.
Why hello, and welcome to another person stored in my library archives! Today, I tell you the story of, "The General!"
Long ago, a little le-matoran was conceived on Ragnus Magna. This child was the son of a soldier, destined to lead. As he grew, it was apparent that leadership was in his genes. When bandits attacked, as a child, he would show his friends where to hide. As a youth, he would distract them. As an adult, he would personally fends the bandits off.
A toa stone was proposed for him, which he accepted. He became a toa of air, and led a small toa team. Word soon spread of his success, and he was transferred to another team with more dangerous missions that reaped more honor.
Soon. however, the power went to his head and he started to be bossy and pushy, expecting everything form everyone. He wanted the best, he wanted to lead armies, but he was stuck in a toa team.
With the help of a few followers, he tried to overthrow the military leaders, but failed. He fled, leaving his supporters behind at the mercy of the police. He hid up in the mountains, where a toa team tracked him down.
They came for him at night, so he would come quietly. But he was awake, expecting this. When they were close, he lept up and fought like a wild beast. When it was over, two lay dead and the rest fled.
As dawn rose, the rays of the sun showed that the two he had killed were members of his old team, the team he had bonded with for years, the team he had risked his life for countless times. He looked at their broken and bloodied bodies, realizing that his own two hands had done the deed.
Then he wept.
The next day, he turned himself in, confessing everything that he had done and taking full responsibility for his actions. He was imprisoned for 40 years for what he had done.
While in prison, he started reading books that helped him think about other things, lest he be driven insane by the look of their eyes as they lay...Well, he tried not to think about it too much.
His favorite kinds were historical novels that told of war and strategic maneuvers that won battles when the odds were ten to one. When he was released, he was a new man, a man with a new purpose, and a man with very valuable information regarding war.
He joined the army, and was given the position of general. I know what you're thinking, "What?! He killed two people and he's a general, just like that?!" The leaders of the army knew that no one person was better suited for the jobs of defeating the bandit armies across the planet.
So, he was a general, a general that valued each and everyone of his men's lives, a general that imparted wisdom to his men every day, a general that often walking among that men's tents, talking and listening to them.
With his knowledge, his regiment had the highest success rate on the planet, and his troops loved him. While he regretted what he had done, he realized he could not change the past, so when he died of old age, he was surrounded by his men, with a smile on his face.
Bye, thanks for viewing!
Above are all the pieces used to make him, although maybe not the weapons. I liked that guy, even if he was a fairly simple build. I have not built a custom chest since him, so maybe I should do that on my next project. Oh, and sorry about the lighting. I had not yet figured out where to shoot photos, I had just been kicked out of my good studio by the heat and stinging insects, and I wanted to build something. there, my excuse. Wow, I sound childish. In my life, I just got my list of classes for next year. I'm only taking two A.P. classes instead of the three I intended, I'm not taking Spanish 3 like I wanted, and I and not taking either Journalism or Chorus like I wanted. *Chirp* But on the plus side, I will have all the credits I need in both science and math this year, and I am taking an art class, so I am content. *Silence* Anyhoo, comment and suggestions for future creations appreciated! Thanks for your time!
