Alright! Here’s another MOC. I tried to go for more or less a feudal Japanese motif, and I think it turned out well. Before the pictures, I would like to say that the head design was inspired by this guy named The Crowe’s Nest on YouTube(idk if he’s on these message boards). Once again, the full bio from the TAPP page is at the bottom for all my fellow bookworms.
Kaito was one of the ancient disciples Of Yoshido, The Earthen Ronin. Part of completely being accepted into his Elemental Order was to give up your human body and accept robotic parts. This would sidestep natural human exhaustion and weakness, Yoshido and his other 4 disciples agreed. However, the 5th disciple, Kaito, disagreed strongly. He believed that his connection to the element of Thunder would be lost completely if he were to give up his humanity. He opposed for as long as he could, but the villagers of his Element as well as Yoshido and the 4 other disciples convinced him that transcending his humanity was the right choice.
Kaito underwent the procedures.
He awoke visibly shaken and unstable. But the breaking point was when he looked down on his hands. Thermal vision enabled itself and two targeting crosshairs focused on them. It was at this moment that Kaito knew he had given up his life and had made a gravely wrong decision. He made a mad dash for the exit of the temple right away, but was stopped by Hyoko, the Disciple of Air. He was subdued, but released several flash-bang grenades from his wrist, blinding the disciples and making his escape. Kaito was erased from the Order’s history and lost to the world.
