Xantar has a backstory, but it’s long and complicated. I will cover the basics.
Age: Unknown, though presumed to be very old
Location: Jungles of Rega Nui
Equipment: Sniper Rifle, Sword (not shown)
Personality: Xantar is known to be self-centered, and will do almost anything to put more widgets in his pocket. He constantly struggles to choose between taking the easy way out and doing the right thing. He is generally calm and collected, even when put under extreme stress.
As a team member, he is unreliable.
Abbreviated Bio: Xantar became a Toa after stealing a Toa Stone from an unaware merchant. Instead of using this power for the greater good, he used it to fuel his own desires. Initially acting as a freelance gun-for-hire, he had a change of heart when Rega Nui was plunged into war with the Kohr race. He was trained by Petrus, along with hundreds of other Toa, to join the fight. However, their location was compromised, and the island began to fall to the Kohr’s armies.
This, paired with a cataclysmic event on the island, forced Xantar into hiding with Petrus and another Toa, Botano. Petrus was later killed, and the two Toa were forced to make an unlikely alliance. They now reside in the jungles of Rega, over a thousand years after the events of the Kohr war.
The purpose of this build was to try and see if I could pair the old Inika torso design and the new gearbox of the 2016 wave. It has about the same posture and even uses the same main piece. Overall I am happy with the design.
The mask was painted by me this time, not Modalt. You can probably tell.
