Update in progess, I am currently waiting on parts to upgrade Nerix’s upper legs
He is a permanent fusion of a Light Toa and a Makuta (names of little to no importance, as they had their minds fused together in the process as well) making him a Titan of Light and Shadow (or Twilight if you prefer.) He wears a Mask of Light and Shadow specially crafted for him, and has full control over both elements.
Nerix was created as an extra security measure by the Great Beings to combat Toa and/or Makuta should either or both fall to corruption.
He is from a universe that suffered great catastrophy; Mata-Nui dying, the Ignika being damaged, and the war that followed, the grief from which drove him to (high functioning) insanity.
He carries the broken Ignika with him as a reminder to keep him focused on his self-imposed mission to fight corruption wherever he finds it. He also absorbed an Olmak to allow him to travel across dimensions in order to continue his mission.
Now he wanders, adrift, a lone hunter… His exploits have made him something of a “Dark Legend” throughout the multiverse, a ghost story, an avenging angel of death, a thing that drives fear into the darkest of nightmares… I may have made him too overpowered, but he’s primarily inspired by Dark Souls bosses and Guts from Berserk, so…
Minor Update, as it didn’t really show up well in my earlier photos: I’m rather proud of this bit, I managed to make a one-eyed custom head with working light-piping!
Also, in case it wasn’t clear before, this is my self-moc.
…and for those who may be wondering he is primarily a G1/technic build. I used 4 ccbs ‘bones’, 4 G2 armor pieces, and 24 friction extenders (I freakin love those things) other than that the other 800ish pieces are good ole technic and G1.
