Shinuy, Corrupted Toa of Kanohi . Yup, Kanohi. You did read it right. You're not crazy. Completely. This is also my entry for round 2 in the BCBS. Wish me luck! :) . Hiyo, I am back with this... thing I have made. I must admit it was a rush build, so it is not spectacular or anything fancy, actually I made him stupidly simple. Despite that though I am quite pleased with this. Enjoy. :)
Link to the BCBS.
Oh, and the bio.
Name: Shinuy, (Shen-oo-ee)
Species: Toa (Deceased), Unknown
Powers: Has the Ability to Create New Kanohi, Can Instill Life and Power in Inanimate Objects
Personality: Pessimistic, Insane, Angry, Periodic Mental Breakdowns
Weapons: Axe Hand, Can Create Kanohi Throwing Stars
Shinuy was one of the first Toa ever created. He was tasked with creating objects to instill power inside a Toa. Then he was given the power to give what you could call life to lifeless objects.
Being one of the first Toa he was given a different appearance than that of the ordinary Toa. He was given an almost angelic appearance with wings and a pure white glow. But because no Kanohi had been made yet when Shinuy was made, Shinuy has not one to use for himself. He does not mind though. At least he didn't before...
Shinuy became angry when it was brought to his attention that, though he was the Toa of Kanohi, he wore none. It didn't bother him that he had not a Kanohi, it bothered him that he was considered less of a Toa because of it by the others. He then began to make a Kanohi he thought would be worthy of a Toa with such a power as he possessed. The great beings soon caught wind of what he was doing and decided a being such as him did not need the power that Shinuy was to bestow to the Kanohi he called Maziku. The Kanohi was far to powerful for Shinuy to handle and the great beings destroyed it. This crushed Shinuy and he became angry towards the great beings, thinking they destroyed his master peace because they were jealous of its power.
After many thousand years Shinuy had become as a power hungry politician, taking everything hew could to get what he wanted. But he was never satisfied with his power, and wanted more. This need for power drove him to insanity. It was in his insanity he came up with a great idea. Because he had the power to instill power in inanimate objects he would simply bring himself close to the point of death, when one becomes as but a hollow shell, and use his power to instill his lifeless corpse with all the powers of the many Kanohi he had created.
After destroying himself using varied techniques he was at the point of death. Using his power he gave life and power to his almost lifeless corpse. But something went wrong. Something went terribly wrong.
His body did indeed fill with power and life but it also became a mangled mesh of useless twisted flesh. The powers of all the Kanohi swelled in his body making bulbous growths. This caused Shinuy immense pain and he ripped most of his armor off to keep the pain from increasing. All of the pain drove Shinuy almost back to death.
In his state of contorted and powerful pain he shriek for the great beings to take his life now and to give him mercy.
The great beings did not kill him. The instead made him immortal. Cursing him to live until he truly understood what had caused the pain he now felt. He cold not die of old age. He could not kill himself. He could do nothing to cause death to himself.
He cursed the great beings for doing this to him and with what little power remained in his body left their presence.
He now wanders abandoned worlds in search of something to help him in understanding why he could feel nothing but pain. He has also made some armor from some of the Kanohi he has created to replace what he ripped off.
Well, to the photos? I apologize that some are blurry, couldn't be helped with the poor light I had available. :/
Here he is in all his ugly-ness!
Left side of his back.
And back to the front.
Torso! Even though you can't really see it, there is a heartlight there. Trust me.
Ahh, my favorite part of the MOC. The purple Pakari Spine. I have had this as an idea FOREVER. It was mainly first made because when I stacked all of my purple Pakari on top of each other and bent them slightly I thought they looked like a Piraka spine. (Does anyone else noticed both of those words are basically spelled the same...) Then I stuck tubes through the eyes and WAH-LA! I meant to use them for a Piraka revamp someday, but never got around to it. So here it is
Without his Kanohi armor. I said simple...
Well, I guess that's...
Hey hold up!
Where do you get off ending this thing without us?
Oh! That's right! I have a self-moc now. Have to show them off every once in a while.
You're not ending this without us!
I'm sorry, I didn't know...
It's ok, just don't do it again.
Sorry guys, my fault. Ok, well, I guess there is only one thing we can do now...
Epic Trio Shot!
Goodbye all! Hey, where is Aivren?
Behind us giving us bunny ears...
Uh-oh, time to go. Bye all!
Creator's Comments: Well, That was fun. As stated this is my entry for the second round in the BCBS. The category was to build a Toa of X where X can be anything unusual or unique. I rather enjoyed this one.
Okay, time to pull one out of Chronos' playbook. I will be hiding five hidden links in this page. I believe they are hidden fairly well. I hid them specifically for Leath Flex. After seeing his Onepu I became inspired and made my own matoran using the design Leath created. I'll be honest, I don't think he believed me when I told him that I had recreated it. So I have hidden them here in hopes of convincing him that I did indeed build it, I merely changed the colors and a few other aspects to suit my personal preference. Hope you all enjoy that, if you can find them ;)
Thanks for viewing, tell me what you think! :)
