Bio:
Several million years after the reformation of Spherus Magna, the OoMN ushered in a new age of peace. Along with this new age came technological advances, creating a more modern world. The OoMN created their own clones of the Makuta, called the 2nd Brotherhood of Makuta, or BoM-2 and put them in charge of the science and technology division of Sherus Magna. During this time, several rebellions of matoran colonies had sprung out on Spherus Magna, and the OoMN did not have enough Toa soldiers to fight the rebellion. So, the BoM-2 decided to create artificial toa to squash the rebellion, and thus the Gladitorian Program was born. The Makuta would take matoran that were suitable for the program, surgically make them larger into Toa-like figures, and fuse elemental power into there bodies, creating vast varieties of Toa. Or, they would take and fuse elemental power with already-Toa-sized Glatorian, thus the name "Gladitorian".

Traurig, at this time, was an Av-matoran working at a power plant as an electrician. One day, a group of BoM-2 scientists came by looking for volunteers for the Gladitorian program. Seeing a better future for himself, Traurig volunteered for the program. He asked to become a Toa of Lightning, so he would be able to control something he was familiar with. After several months of surgery and training, Traurig was given a Toa-stone sword that would enhance his power, a shield, and a mask. He was sent out by the OoMN on an elite stealth task-force to gather information about the rebelling colonies.


Now for pictures!


Front. Like the new look?


Back. (without sword)


Legs. These will most likely change in the future.


Body, arms and NEW CUSTOM HEAD!


He is quite flexible. I believe that flexibility is one of the most important aspects of a MOC.


Balance is important as well.


Wielding his Toa-stone sword, "The Bolt" and his shield.


One last epic shot.



Breaking the Fourth Wall:

Well, I finally got Traurig uploaded. I'm extremely happy with his new look, although I'm not crazy about the legs. I will hopefully be able to upload a few more things soon, but I may have to wait because I am moving to a new house. Oh well. Also, most of the stuff (i.e. the story and bio) that I had written on T's first page is no longer true. I was young and stupid (:P) and didn't know what I was doing. But now, I've got a fresh start!


Sayonara!

Quoting Commander Spencer Pretty sweet, though I liked the Volitak better. A lot better than the Avohkii, which is an extremely overused mask.
Thanks! Look here: http://www.mocpages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=389311&id=/user_images/82588/14013959616 I decided to put it back. :)

Quoting Jarhead nolastname To be honest, bl- er, puff *fakecough* the only problem I see is he appears to be shorter than your previous versions. Otherwise, excellent.
Yes, actually he IS shorter, but that's because I wanted the villan to look monstrous compared to all my other characters. Plus, now he is closer to the size of a normal Toa. Thanks!

Quoting [ Chro ] I liked the Volitak... don't make this into just another Avohkii MOC, dude. :P
Thanks. I may just have to bring back the Volitak, then!

The change of color scheme is really good, and the build itself is quite good. I have two critiques though. One is the occasional gap-ness near the torso joint and the thighs. The second is his change to the overused Avhokii mask.

Yeah, the I didn't like the mask change much either, but I didn't like the actual Volitak as much. The mask will most likely change to something else in the future. Thanks!

Quoting Anaru LST Nice, but try the large option in the uploader so we can see it better.
Yeah, but for now, you just have to click on the pic. Oh well. :P
