I started writing this page last night, but my four hours' work was lost because my dad uses Internet Explorer (which is explanation enough in itself).
Anyway since I'm writing on borrowed time (sorry my uploads are slow and/or half-baked, it's just I have to share this laptop with my equally tech-mad dad until I get a new laptop or tablet), I'll have to cut this short.
Basically, Rahksha is one of my favourite characters I've ever written and the only MOC that I've ever continually made an effort to preserve and improve multiple times. Of all my MOCs from the "Original Generation" (the moniker I've given to my last wave of little-to-no-custom MOCs from 2012 to early 2013), Rahksha was the last one remaining. And I foolishly ripped her apart to make Valkyrion.
That was a mistake. I love Valkyrion, but Rahksha is the self-MOC I've been searching for all this time, and it took her "death" to make me see it.
So, I rebuilt her, and from the ashes, she rises anew...
More to come. For now, here is one clear pic (NOT A PREVIEW PIC! :D) and her theme. Hope you enjoy my TRUE SELF-MOC!
Here is a comprehensive bio for now, till I can revise and elaborate on her story.
Aliases: Daughter of Teridax, Shadowchild, The Temptress, The Female Rahkshi
Species: Rahkshi ("Fe-Rahkshi")
Sexual orientation: Lesbian (though the looks she's given some Toa could've fooled anybody) (Her genetic alteration Mutran made enabled her to lay Kraata herself or using other fe-Rahkshi pheromones, but she is incompatible with "male" Rahkshi)
Sexual/reproductive capacity: Kraatagenesis (aka Kraatamorphosis) [the act of "laying" or producing Kraata from oneself using bodily fluids or shadow powers]
Element: Shadow (has access to all elements, but a psychic barrier put in place by Teridax had sealed all her other elemental powers)
Powers: Ability to infatuate any target (if susceptible), some Kraata Powers, power over the Shadow element
Affiliation: Brotherhood of Makuta (formerly), Order of Mata Nui
Occupation: Assassin, recon agent, band frontwoman, kleptomaniac extraordinaire
MOC Status: Assembled (ver. 7)
Character inspirations: Makoto Nanaya, Nu-13/Lambda-11 and Noel Vermillion/Mu-12 (BlazBlue), Roodaka (BIONICLE), and of course myself
Here is how she started, two years ago, back in 2012:
Hope you like her - her latest version, especially, of course. Unfortunately I only have pictures of V1 and V5 IIRC/AFAIK (I did have pics of V6, but I currently cannot find them), but I remember each version, so when I upload the full version of this page/MOC, I will just give descriptions in place of images.
Haha, I had forgotten about Lynna. Good point. Valk looks great but he is extremely flimsy, where as Rahksha is actually extremely sturdy, surprisingly so. Anyway, I have a new version inspired by Dead Master from Black Rock Shooter that I will show as soon as I sort out my final entry for BMC 2014, which is much more to your taste I think. I love her here, but this V8 is my favourite. Thanks for dropping by! ^o^
Oh... Eh... Allow me to be honest, dear: I feel terribly dissappointed with your decision. Rahksha is a really typical character since BioRockDude (I think?) made it famous in Youtube, the lesbian big-chested Rahkshi. Well, actually what bugs me is the Rahkshi head, I've seen so many MOCs using it that I grow tired of it... That's not your problem though, right? But Valkiryon is a really impressive and original character and I like it a lot more than this one... *sigh* Anyways, it can't be helped if you feel more identified with Rahksha. The very first one that should be pleased with a character is its creator, after all... Even my self-MOC is a regular Inika build that doesn't match the head with the body =P That said, this MOC is not bad at all. The legs have a really great shaping, and the hands (as I stated for Valkiryon) look great. I can't say more with just one picture, but on dear, I just love that picture, she looks great xD So, to sum up: as far as I see, Rahksha indeed looks great, but in my opinion Valkiryon is better in all the ways. Hope to see more from you soon!

She is very cute, and gorgeous. Nice body line!
Thanks!! ^_^ I made a new, more shadowy "version" of her, so when I'm not being lazy/on hiatus I'll upload that and more pictures of this and previous versions. Probably early in the new year or after Christmas
Interesting. Never really seen that concept before. Brownie points for the original concept.
I like it

I love the idea of this for technology to advance to reproduction. You could say that the great beings had plans for reproduction, but stopped the idea and hid the plans and logs. Teridax found the plans and logs and used them. Sorry for hearing about the lost of work for that has happened many times. 4/5
First glance says meh, but when you look closer, it's not an average Rahkshi MOC, which I feel it should be. So well done for breaking the rules. Of all the silly things good 'ole Greg Farshtey did. . . No Love/reproduction in the Matoran Universe. The Nuvaboobs are a bit oversized I feel, but. . . They flow and suit the character (Yes, I'm one of the few and far between who read backstories). So on that one, I'm baffled but feel it displays your ability as a MOCcist. The legs seem to be lacking in articulation but otherwise look good. And that's all I can gather.
Well, here's something you don't see every day. She's different, but in a good way. Really like the heel design, but from what I see, the neck looks a bit too far back, which causes the breasts to look like they are popping out too much (this probably isn't actually the case, but looking at the picture you uploaded...). 2012 version also looks incredible, and didn't seem to suffer the same neck problem. Overall, this deserves as 6/5 (If I could rate this MOC that high...).

Ok fine if thats the way you see it LOL. Nice feet on this one.
Haha yeah its strange I know. I tried to stay true to her original traits from 2012 lol. THANK YOU for saying you like the feet! I was hoping you would,they are my fave part of her, but I'm proud of her chest design the most, and her realistic, more womanly thighs. I tried my beat to make her like a real woman, but I hope the waist isn't too small like in cartoons xD

I think your going too far if your giving a bionicle any sexual orientation at all. Way too far.
Well I say "orientation", she has no concept of love as Teridax didn't teach her those kinds of emotions. Frankly, it's because simply isn't compatible with the original Rahkshi - Mutran wanted the female Rahkshi to be able to produce new Rahkshi and/or Kraata themselves (Kraatagenesis), but in doing so he altered the subspecies so far that they aren't able to reproduce with male(?) Rahkshi.
Thanks for pointing that out, I will edit to explain/expand it better.
Although I don't really see why it would be taking it too far. BIONICLE people deserve some love, too! :(
