These are a pair of crabs I modeled after two of my friend’s selfmocs, Toa Bythalis and Toa Altron, the first of which belongs to @MrBoltTron. Probably the main inspiration was BoltTron’s tortoise version of my selfmoc, so nothing like a bit of a comeback in the same spirit.
These two also kick off my new story, which will be told as snippets of lore from which you can put together events as I upload more mocs related to the story and setting. This site isn’t exactly the best place to keep it tidy, but I made a dedicated folder on my deviantart.
Anywho, lore time:
"The Bolt Crab is a stern predator. It lies in the sand waiting and paralyzes its pray by delivering electricity through its claws. If it feels threatened it releases all its stored electricity from its back at once.
After the mask forge of Ta-Maanos sunk into the sea, it attracted heat resistant prey, but also the toughest of predators. The Sunken Forge and its valued masks and materials are now only accessible with a kanohi Kaukau or to amphibious beings."
"The Lance Crab is more mellow than its electric cousin, but possesses powerful arms. It lives in the hottest areas of the forge, feeding on smaller crustaceans. It stuns them by slapping its prey and uses its claws like a lance, piercing the shell.
The deepest part of the Sunken Forge is rumored to have the remaining kanohi and kanoka of Maanos. Only one being is known to be capable of retrieving them."
