The aeonyx who created the world of the Wardens.
An aeonyx originally created to be a warrior who can cut anything, it initially looked like Nediam's power was limited to only physical matter as meant to. It eventually became apparent it extended beyond that, when she once teleported by dividing space. Seeing potential for finding new resources, she was retired from being a warrior and placed into the science division, despite her objections.
Unfit, being created as a warrior, and impatient for learning the tropes of science she snuck to the physical realm and tried to use her abilities to skip time to quickly mature and gain the required knowledge. The plan backfired as her physical form's mass and energy shifted, causing her to absorb a nearby planet to accommodate for conservation of mass. The planet binded to her energy and became an inner world of hers. It also anchored her to the physical realm, being a repercussion of the unplanned fusion.
Her energy became unstable, giving random fits of tiredness, as her energy now depended on the irregular patterns of the planet. She divided her vision to see her inner workings and eventually figured to divide the planet into three worlds to create an energy pattern via the life/death cycle. Her last dividing was to send pieces of her energy to bind with each world's inhabitants, creating Watchers to regulate the energy flow. The Watchers picked up the ability to divide themselves and learned to create Wardens for their aid.
The plan worked mostly, and Nediam created 3 smaller worlds built upon concepts of mind, life and soul/energy, and refrained from further dividing. She went to hiding, fearing a distress call would lure renegades, and entered stasis to conserve her energy, keeping her aware only of her inner worlds. She is hoping to find by observing them a way to reverse her dividings, and perhaps new resources on the side, as originally meant to.
The aeonyx species provided me an opportunity to do some world building for a storyline of mine, the Warden's Diary, which I've been writing for almost 2 years, adding a chapter per new moc. I'm honestly happy I could lay a more solid foundation for it and I can use the details to improve new chapters.
This moc was a pretty pleasant build, although the torso's inner structure is a disaster. It can split into two if held wrong, the shoulders have a risk of popping out and a few other nightmares. Atleast I got the shaping right.
I'm not typically keen on making cough 'features' with nuva armor, but in this case I wanted the character to have a bit more curve. Works pretty well I think, I'm especially fond of the thigh design I came up with.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you like this moc ^_^
