For my readers, this is Vraievel's Servant, Saber, from UGW. His true name is Caius. Caius' character is a collaboration with Hawkflight and Tristan Ex Machina while the MOC is, naturally, mind, aside from wrists which were inspired by Onuku's Virse.
About this creation

“Toa Caius was a loner who didn't really play by the rules, but the Order of Mata Nui let him do as he wished because he got results. Caius refused to follow the Toa Code because he had no wish to become a Toa. The Order decided to allow him to keep such a mindset provided he would not spread it. Long after his death, he became something of an idol to Roark the Ranger.

“However, Toa Caius did not hate his fellow Toa. He liked them a lot. Or perhaps it was pity. Either way, every time he heard of a Toa's demise, it felt (as he wrote) "like nails off a chalkboard to [him]. Or maybe like drilling for bone marrow." Knowing he'd be wracked with guilt if his brethren were felled because he wasn't there, he decided to hop about Hagah teams, switching with other Toa to make sure all was well. A reluctant hero. And eventually, a villain for other reasons.

“So, when he was assigned to the team of Toa Dextros and Toa Vortux, he had no complaints or direct objections. Little did Caius know, however, that a terrible event was about to unfold. The outbreak of Makuta Teridax’s treason upon the Toa Hagah who were to guard them. Caius, joining the team in protection of the Makuta scientist known as Netrux, was about to nevertheless find out about this upheaval whether he liked it or not.

“Indeed, the Toa Hagah team of Dextros fell apart when the Makuta attacked. It’s unknown how the betrayal took place, since Netrux was held in high regard by all even after the Makuta turned evil under Teridax’s inexorable influence. What is known is that the leader of this team, Toa Dextros, was indebted to the Makuta and felt as though he owed his life to them. As such, he refused to acknowledge the betrayal until last minute – and as it was for his team, far too late. Vortux and others were taken via hypnosis and led to believe that the Makuta’s newfound evil ways the correct ones. However, Caius’ Mask of Last Resort (Kanohi Vita) gave him an immense burst of willpower, and he ran, taking the hand of the nearest Toa, that of the Toa of Lightning, Sethryk, Caius resisted the warping trance of the Makuta’s evil eyes. They ran far enough to escape the fatally wounded Dextros’ Nova Blast – a moment which Caius came to realize, horrifyingly, that marked the Toa of Plantlife’s final epiphany: the Makuta had abandoned him, and so had his ideals. Caius would often wonder if Dextros went nova because he wanted to protect his teammates, or because he simply had nothing left to exist for. His raison d’etre was instantly destroyed, and Caius would – could – never forget that.

“Soon afterward, Caius and Serthyk stumbled across more and more Toa under the Makuta’s influence.

——— “Now, history states that the Makuta slaughtered almost all of the Toa Hagah. And that certainly was what was to be assumed with the information available at the time. Blame this report on a lazy Chronicler. But recently, during the post-war ataraxia on the island of Faiklen, archaeologists uncovered texts written by a Dark Hunter named “Phantom” who had stalked Caius and Serthyk in the years after their escape.

“Toa fell under the Makuta’s influence. And over time, legends began to spread of two Toa, one of Lightning and one of Iron, massacring the heroes. The two were regarded as villains instantly. Nobody would know, until now, that Caius and Serthyk were slaying the possessed, ghastly shells of their former brothers and sisters.

“A grim task. It took the two best warriors to come out of the Great Spirit Robot to make it possible for the Toa Mata to save the world. And truly, the reason why Caius would change from being a lance bearer to a scythe wielder… was that his sole purpose was to dole out an ending to those whose were long overdue.


———“He had become Death, the destroyer of worlds. Or so the legend goes.”

– Extract from ‘Before Faiklen’ by the philosopher and former king, Èyùn, the sole scrap of parchment found on the desk of the missing hero of Aoiki, Archer, shortly before his disappearance last week.


Well, thank you all very much for reading the backstory! I had it planned out with Hawkflight’s characters, Vortux and Serthyk, and Tristan Ex Machina’s Dextros! At the moment, we’re considering extrapolating this into a full length story, but I wouldn’t hold my breath. My partners in crime:

Hawkflight _(Steven)

Quoting NewDrewBuilder1992 /// I love the design of this Toa, and the backstory of the character. It is a well-done effort that paid off.
Thank you very much! I aim to inspire!

Quoting Wertman 8 Almost a year later and I couldn't help but come back to this MOC- I used him again for one of my character's backstories, I hope you don't mind- he's just such a cool character! www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/439729
Dude, no worries, I'm more than honored that you used him! You've got my full permission to abuse Caius as you wish :P

Quoting Chains Productions Excellent MOC! You very beautifully made him look intimidating, without having to make him a giant. The Skrall armour on the lower arms look quite nice. I also really like how the lower legs are designed. The weapons are also very well designed. Awesome job! Keep up the good work!
Thanks Chains! Means a lot!

Quoting Wertman 8 yes; I can see why you like it; very knightlike :p Oh, and I hope you don't mind, but my character's story will involve Caius slightly (not in any way that interferes with the backstory here, and only really serves to complement it)
Badass! I'm no stranger to it myself, Netrux, you might know - the Makuta which Caius was guarding - is actually a character of Zach/X, Hawkflight and Andrew Sargent's belonging. Friday can't come faster!

Quoting Toa Gaim Awesome work!
Thanks Gaim!
Quoting Wertman 8 Very nice work! The weapons all look awesome, and the character himself looks fairly solid; the Kanohi Vita is a little too big for the rest of his body, but there isn't much to be done about that :P I think he could do with some silver on his chest, just to fully tie the colour scheme together, but still; great job! Good luck in the contest (my entry is on its way >:3)
I await it warmly! Thank you for your sentiments, and yeah, despite the Hau Mistika being my favorite mask, it's pretty big.

Interesting story, designs and weaponry with this MOC! Two things I would suggest is to add more dark red and add better shaping to the shield. It may be just me, but the shield looks a bit ugly to me (sorry). Nevertheless, excellent work! A fantastic entry to the Toa Hagah contest!

Yeah, shield didn't come out well. I wanted a kind of "double-barrel" rhotuka shield but it proved a little difficult. Thanks for your critique and warm words.
Quoting Leximatic LJ2 Q4R Great MOC, has everything! Stylish weaps, i especially like the sword.
Haha, I prefer the absurdly big scythe myself! Thanks for viewing!
Quoting RaptorTalon ~ Very cool! I really love the look of it, and find the mask really fitting. Great work!

Quoting Windfall the Wanderer Wow, that was fast. You've given a good start to the contest.
I leap at the opportunity to do contests. I might not be very tight knit with people here anymore, but people do follow me, and more than anything I want to encourage other people to enter contests again, since they've been on the decline. So thank you, Windfall, for making it, and I sincerely hope you get a number of other entries. Invite as many people as you can, and make Gabe an admin to invite others as well. That's my advice to you. Good luck with running it!

Quoting Blizzard - Brilliant work! The backstory, the shield, the colors, the sword, all of it looks fantastic!
Ugh, I had a few hiccups and actually left out a huge chunk about 'misinformation' in G1, but I'm glad most of it still came through. Thanks very much, Blizzard, it's heartwarming to know my stories are read.
Quoting Makuta's Descendant - The weapons, the legs, the torso, all of it looks awesome! My only critique would be that the shoulder pads look like they strict arm movement. Nevertheless he's a great Moc!
Since they attach with rods rather than axles, the pads actually can move forward and backward on shoulders to ensure arm movement is unrestricted. Well spotted, though. Thanks for your words and time!
