Cossy, Captain of the Guard's Theme – History of the Moon
Bio: Name: Cossy Gender: Male Race: Matoran (Luna Magnian) Element: Lightning, Moonlight (Unusable) Kanohi: Mask of Supersonic Flight Titles: Captain of the Luna Magnian Guard Affiliation: Kingdom of Luna Magnians Powers/Abilities: Strong control over lightning, Mastered combat with Broadsword and Bow. Weapons: Lightning Broadsword, Lightning Bow
Cossy had a similar origin to Callan. He was a Matoran with a unique element, and was thus drafted into the Luna Magnian guard and made a Toa. He too, sped through the ranks like lightning. He quickly caught up to Callan, but was unable to surpass him until Callan was banished after the Dimensional Relocation of Luna Magna. (See Callan's Backstory.) Callan had taught him everything he knew, but Cossy planned to never upset King Gringat like Callan did, and be even more loyal. Now Callan hates Cossy along with the rest of the Lunarian Kingdom, but Cossy still regrets taking Callan's place as Captain of the Luna Magnian Guard, and hopes that one day they can be friends again. Cossy still serves as Captain of the Guard under King Gringat to this day.
Without further ado, here's the MOC!
Wielding his Lightning Broadsword.
A 'Hero Shot' with the Broadsword.
Now the moment you've all been waiting for, Cossy's Lightning Bow!
It has function! Once the arrow pulls back, the blades on the front of the bow extend!
Not a position you want to be in. I'm not feeling lucky...
Realistically, he can store the bow over his shoulder!
With his weapons. I wouldn't want to cross him!
Selfie! No, just a close up of his torso design. Probably my most needlessly complicated one at that.
He's kinda got a little bit of a hunchback going on, which is the remains of a planned feature (a removable arrow quiver) that never got implemented. He still looks fine from every other angle though!
Close up on the entirely custom legs! Pretty proud of these! (Even if they do look awkward)
Old friends-turned-enemies cross blades once again!
All of the released Project Moonlight MOCs so far.
Last pic! Size comparison with Toa Mata Kopaka!
Well here he finally is! I've been meaning to release this guy for ages now! The delay was caused by a lack of fingers that I needed to order from Bricklink! Yep seriously! I attempted to mimic Ben's old MOCing style with this MOC, and I think I did a good job at that! Obviously Cossy doesn't look anything like this anymore, but I'm not going to change my MOC to match the new version of Cossy anytime soon. Speaking of which, check it out! It's pretty darn good!
I know I've been very inactive lately, but don't lose heart. I'm trying my best to keep up with this and my turbulent life at the same time! And I have a special treat for you guys! (Let's call it an early Christmas present!) PROJECT MOONLIGHT IS FINISHED. Yep, and I'm releasing the final MOCs all at once! So prepare yourselves for the last two new MOCs! Thanks for looking!
Thanks Callan! I agree on the legs, but that's the price you pay for entirely custom builds! :)

This is my rendition of Cossy, I can make his element Lightning if I want. Plus I seem to remember a past version of Cossy controlling lightning as well. I already had Callan controlling fire, I thought I'd mix it up a bit since Blue Fire is not a canon element. :)
Excellent work! The weapons are outstanding, although I do think the really greebly legs and lower arms don't match the smoother chest and shoulders. Still, there are some great concepts going on in this moc, an overall fantastic job, Connor! :D
