Assigned Region: None
Mask: Great Kanohi Avsa, the Mask of Hunger
Tools: Ornamental Bladestaff
Lore: The enforcer on the island of Destral back in Miserix’s rule, Hormahk was a callous, single-minded, and feared Makuta. Fiercely loyal to Miserix, he rarely made decisions of his own, instead letting Miserix guide his will. He interrogated and executed intruders and enemies of Mata Nui who found their way to the Makuta island of Destral, and was known for his thorough work. If someone was left alive after being interrogated by him, their mental state certainly wouldn’t be an indicator of their livelihood, babbling and barely in control of their own body. Hormahk had no sympathy or empathy, and did not understand any concepts other than loyalty to Miserix, and fear. He had full access to the standard powers of a Makuta, though rarely used any, with the exception of shapeshifting (as it was an effective tool in interrogations). His powers of shapeshifting are used to fabricate a Makuta’s mask to wear on his chest, as a reminder to the Makuta of what would happen were they to step out of line. When Teridax attempted to seize control of the Brotherhood, Hormahk was ordered by Miserix to execute him as a traitor, along with his followers. He approached Teridax, and asked him how he would prefer to die. Teridax’s response was to impale Hormahk with his own bladestaff. Hormahk fell, stunned, and Teridax ripped the bladestaff from his chest. Hormahk’s antidermis seeped from the gash in his armor, and died. Icarax, who was sided with Teridax at the time, took the bladestaff and would use it in his battles at Karda Nui. Hormahk’s death was a large catalyst to Teridax’s takeover, as once the enforcer of Destral was gone, the other Makuta were less afraid to join Teridax.
I finished most of this project in one day, as I spent so much time planning and waiting for inspiration, but I think the wait was worth it. I’m very proud of this MOC, and look forward to seeing what you all think! Constructive criticism is, as always, appreciated.
Hormahk V1.5 is here, with only 3 building changes and one posing change, so I can’t call it a V2, but the changes are enough to want to post this update.
Turned his lower arms sideways, because they look better that way.
Flipped his shoulder armor around to make the MOC flow better.
Removed the hip armor and placed it on the back of his legs. Not only did that make his lower torso look better, but it helped armor up the back of his legs more and added a surprising amount of stability.
I also, at @Gilahu 's request, gave him a chain around his right arm, because his claw looked lonely.
Once again, I hope you guys like it, and I always welcome constructive criticism!
