THEME SONG:

STORY:

Kangar was just your average young (college age on Earth) bo-matoran from the recently reunited Spherus Magna; he was fun, playful, adventurous and smart.
One day, while he was exploring among the giant trees outside of his village, a vine he was swinging from snapped and sent him hurtling towards the ground, far below him. In his attempts to save himself by grabbing another vine, his right thumb got tangled and was ripped of his hand. Instead of completely exploding off the ground, he landed in a pool of energized protodermis.
After regaining consciousness, he quickly realized that his kanohi had been melted and almost completely destroyed, he scrambled into an elaborately decorated temple nearby looking for a new one, not noticing what he emerged from, his size doubling, or a new protosteel thumb.
Inside the temple, he found a sarcophagus. Desperate for help, he lifted the cracked lid, finding nothing but a kanohi Kualsi. Seconds before he would've gone unconscious and died, he tore off his damaged Pakari and put the Kualsi in its place. Once he calmed down realizing that he didn't die, he jumped as he heard a voice, but after a quick search around the room he found that he was alone. He then mentally told himself that he was just hearing things because of his traumatic experience, but right after he heard the same voice say “Hey, you aren't hearing things, kid, I'm just inside your head.” Kangar, very cautious and startled, asked the voice what he meant. After a while of explaining Kangar learned that the voice is the soul of Dykaruhks, the previous wearer of the Kualsi.
He was a commander of part of a relatively large army fighting in the Core War. Several years before the Shattering he was badly damaged by a Vorox ambush, so when they knew he wouldn't live for too much longer, his troops built him a temple in his honor witch would preserve his spirit in hopes that someone would find it and reawaken him.
Dykaruhks' personality is much like Kangar's, so they get along extremely well and enjoy watching strangers wonder why Kangar always talks to himself. Dykaruhks also introduced a strange never before seen food: cupcakes. He taught Kangar how to bake the delicious new snack and he fell in love with it immediately, but most people he offers them to usually think that its just weird.
They have since created a clan of fighters, scavengers, mercenaries etc. called The Troop which basically rivals with most evil doers such as Dark Hunters and several other groups.

Chopping the Fourth Hedge:
Fist of all, just ignore that black hf leg armor, i don't have another green one and i don't feel like going out and getting another one. Back to the task at hand; I personally love this version of Kangar, he looks like he can really kick butt now, amiright? I took out the small green hf armor on his shoulders because they made him look like a weird letter "T" and it reeeaaally blocked a lot of movement at the shoulders. I gave him some new equipment, like the shield that's on Toa of Death's version of Kang and his new plant club, somewhat inspired by Crazy Awesome #1's Bovema's sword. I like his very long, lankyish look that he has, I believe it suits him well.
C&C much appreciated, also don't forget to rate!

Quoting Toa Ekorak
lol I just emailed you
  June 20, 2014
Also, if you wanted to kinda intertwine stories that would be cool. You mention in his bio that he leads The Troop, which is comprised of fighters, scavengers, and mercenaries.....hmmmm....isn't Ekorak a mercenary? In my later canon he leads a team called the Toa Zenocron, comprised of Ekorak, Ekorak, Ekorak, Wolvix, Kalidra Cydravias, and Thunderclaw. Yes, you read that right, three Ekoraks. Why? Because the Prime Ekorak wanted a team, but at the time no one trusted him enough to join him. So he stole an Olmak and summoned versions of himself from alternate realities, specifically from a dying universe, in which Ekorak had never fused with the Staff of Perfect Alignment, remaining in his mutated form and waiting out the end of the Silver Peaks Antiworld, escaping through a rift created by the massive shockwaves at the end of a universe. They call him The Elder, because he is faaaarrrr older than the other two. Time passes differently in the SPAW universe. The third one is from another reality, much like the Prime universe, but instead of becoming a ruthless mercenary, he instead forgave the remaining members of the Hand of Artahka, and basically becomes this ninja-knight-soldier-hunter-thing who just happens to be really powerful. They call him The Hero. The Prime Ekorak is usually just referred to as The Hunter. Kalidra, Wolvix and Thunderclaw are some other Toa who I won't give backstories for on this comment, because it's already really long. Also, expect The Hero version of Ekorak to be posted soon. I think you're going to like him. Especially because I...wait for it...drumrole please...ADDED A THIRD COLOR WOOT WOOT! But it's not too invasive of his normal colors either so I'm happy. If you want to talk more I recommend emailing me @ toaekorak@gmail.com because MOCpages is great and all, but you don't get notifications if someone replies to you on a page that isn't yours.

Quoting Toa Ekorak This guy looks great! When can we expect to see v4? I saw some updates to his arms in the pictures for Rahkshi: Overload, and he looked great. I know that v2 of Ekorak is coming out soon. Maybe we could release them on the same day XD
Thanks! V4 is slowly but surely coming together, he's actually gonna look a lot different, with a color scheme very similar to Gresh's (more dark green, black under the armor). But I'm having a bit of a moc-block on his body, I have everything but that. So unless you're willing to wait a while to upload Ekorak v2, I wouldn't wait for me :p. Although if I do find a good design soon then probably. Also, I'm lookin forward for the new Ekorak!

Quoting Cordaz Toa of Sushi There is one thing I have to ask, though...What the heck was an energized pool of protodermis doing sitting out in the middle of a jungle?!
Haha, I have no idea!, I guess it was just part of the temple or something XD

Quoting Toa of Death Looking good :D. I like the torso and the gun, and he looks super planty.... Anyhoo, why aren't your camera pics uploading?
I don't really know, but I have a mac, and whenever I try to choose photos from iPhoto, it says that it can't be done or some crap like that :P It only lets me upload photos from Photo Booth which is what I've been using until I got my snazzy new cam.

Quoting X ~ You nailed the plantlife Toa look, there is no denying that. The Scorpio spike pieces make the body the body look like a cactus, which yet again fits a plant. But they also give the torso a nice shape, very agile like. The greeebles on the torso give this a filled in torso which can be very hard to do, and you nailed it. Even the green rope piece looks plant like, I personally love that part! The legs are great.They fit the theme and look very agile. Though the only part I don't like about them is the ignorance of a green HF part...but that's not your fault, I read the fourth wall;) The arms are great too. The spiky vine bits look nice there! And the leaf pieces are also pretty nice. My MAIN problem with the arms is that the lower arms just need to be custom...the rest of the body is so intricate which makes the lower arms a bit of a block in all of that.If you could possibly change that, that would be great. Other than that a overall very well made Moc! One of my favorite Self-Mocs I've seen in a while. :)
Thanks! I really appreciate the feedback! I'll give him custom forearms in the next update! (Also with the b-day moola i got, i could probably just buy a set with that hf armor piece, as well as other pieces i need.) :D
