For once I tried to make a MOC look female without overdoing it for her character.
Long ago in the Great Spirit Robot, there lived a race a powerful angel-like biomechanical beings that oversaw the work of the Matoran in the Matoran universe. These beings intervene in case an event of great devastation occurs to the universe. When the Mutant Assassin was created by the brotherhood of Makuta, a noble powerful warrior by the name of Anahera was assigned to stop the clone from rampaging throughout the universe. She was later given the task of also keeping the Princess of Jungle under control from seeking revenge as she grew in power as well, since the clone killed her people. Thus, she serves as a peacekeeper between the two.
So I wanted to create an angel MOC for a pretty long time. When I first created her, she was a pretty basic Toa Master build with only the standard arm swinging function. However, that got pretty boring after a while and I wanted something a little bit different.I wanted to give her a flapping wing function. The MOC still looked too masculine for me, so I then overhauled it over trial and error. The idea for the gear box wing flapping function goes to a user by the name of LGNui; I thought that was a really excellent idea to give the MOC more playability (at the cost of more top heaviness, can’t have it all).
For more playability, she also has a shield that can fire Rhotuka spinners. These not only have light elemental abilities but also have the power to pacify belligerent beings.
So unlike my two other female MOCs, I wanted this MOC to look feminine but not have overtly sexualized features. This was done for three reasons. One it was because doing so would detract from her overall duty which was to bring order and justice to the Matoran Universe. Two, it was because she is supposed to represent beings that are holy. Three, members of this race are dressed and armored up modestly, so it’s also a cultural thing. Originally, I had the rear looking the same way as Hangara, but with some thought, I decided to get rid of it because mainly of the first two reasons. However, the CCBS piston details on her thighs to make her hips look wider, giving a sense of femininity. Her shoulders also have very minimal armor on them.
Even though she is top heavy, she can still pose sensibly without tipping over when balanced correctly.
Her name comes from the Maori word that simply means “angel”. Along with her light based abilities, she also wears a modified Kanohi Avohkii to boost her powers, although she is one of the few beings to not need to wear a mask.
As usual, praise and/or criticism is welcome. Just make sure to keep it constructive. Thanks and enjoy!!
