I designed this guy to be both my self MOC and as a stand-in for the Great Beings of the Okoto universe, known as Precursors. Crotos was the Precursor in charge of Rahi creation and management, but was banished from the Precursor plain of existence, Eir Numen, when he was tricked by three other Precursors into creating a Rahi that could be mentally controlled by the Precursors, who then used it to ravage the lands and frame Crotos. Once worshiped by the Okotons, Crotos is now hated and feared throughout the land. He seeks to take revenge on the those who betrayed him, and bears the title "Son of Eir Numen" as he is the only Precursor to ever set foot outside of Eir Numen, or more simply known as the Red King. He wears a lantern around his neck that is said to house the soul of his lost lover, the Blue Queen. Story wise he's a bit of a WIP, but I'm generally satisfied with how he looks now.
The build of this guy was rather fun and different for me, as I challenged myself to incorporate a large amount of system pieces into his build. While he may seem somewhat cluttered in spaces, he overall came out the way I wanted him to look. That, and this is the sixth time he has been rebuilt. The sword has been custom painted. As always, I welcome your comments and constructive criticism!
EDIT #3: You know how I said that my last edit would be my last edit? Well I just couldn't keep my hands off this guy, so I decided to give him a new head, gave him his sword Dreadspine back, removed the cloth altogether, and gave him the soul lantern necklace. Let me know what you think of the new Crotos and if you like him or if you liked his other variations better. Cheers!

EDIT #2: Finally decided to put the wings and tail back on, and I have to say I'm rather pleased with the way this MOC looks now. This is most likely the last update I'll be doing for him, so let me know what you think!
