So, the old topic kind of died with little being resolved, but I liked the idea too much to let it go. If you've ever taken a look at BS01's Unnamed Species List, you'll find a ridiculous number of sapient species in the MU. Many of them are the Barraki or members of the OoMN or Dark Hunters, many of which were just waved off as their own species. But as we looked closer, there are many characters with similar physical traits, powers, or histories. Many of the inconsistencies are easily explained by mutations or technology, or simply interspecies variations. Just as Matoran and Skakdi have elemental subspecies, many of these other species could be divided up in new ways. I've read through the old topic again, and I've compiled a new list of species and subspecies based on these suggestions. Please note these are all my own decisions and they are by no means the right ones. I welcome suggestion or debate on any of them, otherwise I wouldn't have made a topic. Canon 1. Makuta Prototypes Darkness Eliminator Shadow Stealer Originally designed by the Great Beings to be keepers of order and creators of the Rahi. The early prototypes were given elemental Shadow and often additional powers, but the versions perfected and created by Mata Nui were also given the 42 Kraata Powers plus a few extras. They have the ability to use Kanohi. 2. Matoran Subspecies Toa Turaga The main inhabitants of the Matoran Universe, built to maintain Mata Nui's inner workings. Each Matoran possesses an elemental affiliation that is manifested as elemental control should they become a Toa or Turaga. They also have the ability to use Kanohi. 3. Skakdi Inhabitants of Zakaz, initially peaceful and powerless until Makuta Spiriah's modifications, from which they gained elemental powers when used with another Skakdi, vision powers, and other abilities, as well as an unquenchable thirst for violence. This species is known for their claws, wide grins, and long spines. 4. Steltan Subspecies Upper Class Brutaka Hydraxon Sidorak Voporak The Steltan Upper Class are tall and vaguely Toa-like. Though they can wear Kanohi, they do not depend on their use as the Matoran do. A little known fact about them is that they grow far more powerful when exposed to Antidermis, a plausible explanation for their dominance of the other, more powerful species of Stelt. Servant Krekka The Servants of Stelt, otherwise known as "Bruisers," are large and powerful beings, but their lack of intelligence keeps them from dominating the upper class. They are commonly used as workers or body guards. They are unable to use Kanohi. Slave Gladiator The Slaves of Stelt are even larger and more powerful than the Servants, and their speed and agility is unmatched by the others, but many are somehow forced into fighting for entertainment. 5. Vortixx Roodaka Conjurer The inventive and intelligent inhabitants of Xia. They are typically tall and armored in black. Their society is dominated by the women with little opportunity for men. Conjurer stole their advanced technology and set out for a life of his own and became a ruler of a small group of Matoran. They are able to wear Kanohi. Subspecies Johmak A subspecies of the Vortixx with the ability to shatter their bodies into crystal and reform at will. Lariska The original inhabitants of Odina before they were betrayed by Lariska and destroyed with the sole exception of her. 6. Zyglak An amphibious species with a hatred for Matoran. Their scaly skin is coated with an organic Protodermis destroying disease. They are immune to Pit Mutagen and virtually invulnerable to elemental attacks. Barraki 7. Carapar Axxon Carapar's race was one of the first created in the Matoran Universe, as implied by Axonn's status as an ex-Hand of Artahka member. This species inhabited the Southern Isles and were dominated by warlords such as Axonn and Carapar, the latter of whom was called to be a Barraki. This species is generally large and powerful and have the ability to use Kanohi. 8. Ehlek In appearance, this species closely resembles Ehlek's mutated form. They are unable to breathe air and are thus confined to the oceans around Zakaz without breathing apparatuses. Each member has been modified by the OoMN, giving them great strength and powerful claws to kill Makuta. They are also able to wear Kanohi. 9. Kalmah A species with the ability to wear Kanohi. 10. Mantax Trinuma This tall species is known for the large horns protruding from the back of their heads, though these became tentacles when Mantax was mutated. They also are able to wear Kanohi. 11. Pridak Tobduk The original inhabitants of Visorak. Pridak was taken to be a Barraki long before most of the rest of his civilization was destroyed by the Visorak. This species is generally tall and powerful and typically has the ability to feed on emotion to grow stronger. They are able to wear Kanohi. 12. Takadox A species with the abilities to hypnotize others and wear Kanohi. Other 13. Airwatcher Airwatchers' backstory seems to imply he is one of the last of his kind. Perhaps the others were hunted to extinction or killed themselves off due to their own dim-wittedness. His classification as a sentient species is questionable, and he could easily be a mislabeled Rahi. Airwatcher possesses wings and a chest launcher, the latter may have been the result of Dark Hunter modification. 14. Amphibax An amphibious species with close relations to Ehlek's species, agile on land and in the sea. They also possess enhanced senses. 15. Botar Botar's Replacement Another race hailing from the Southern Isles, known to be "savage," perhaps meaning more primitive or superstitious than the rest of the universe. This species towers over most others and has the ability to teleport and use Kanohi. 16. Dweller Vanisher Vengeance This is one of the few MU species to grow as they age, ranging from just below Toa height to towering titans. Their common traits include long, thin wings and horns atop their heads used to channel their psionic subpowers unique to each individual. 17. Krahka Triglax A sentient species misclassified as a Rahi due to their shapeshifting habits, though they can also take the forms of other sentient beings. Some are able to copy inherent powers of the forms they take, or merge forms together. Very few remain after near devastation by the Visorak, many of whom remain in hiding or serving under more powerful beings who can protect them. 18. Mimic A species from a distant land that was destroyed in a natural disaster. At least some members of this species possess photographic reflexes. 19. Nocturn Sentrakh A four-armed and powerful species with the ability to regrow lost limbs. They are immune to Pit Mutagen. Their home island was destroyed by Nocturn with few survivors. Sentrakh was taken before or after and heavily modified by The Shadowed One. 20. Primal Seeker These two are the last survivors of a four-legged race whose island was ravaged by Visorak, and afterwards all but Primal were killed by The Shadowed One. Seeker was recruited as a servant of the Brotherhood of Makuta and escaped the destruction. They are known to be agile and strong. 21. Poison A species nearly wiped out by Matoran as they were mistaken for violent Rahi. Their poison, which is ejected from their mouths, paralyzes the victim and is lethal within half an hour, though they are not immune. They also possess stunning tails. 22. The Shadowed One Ancient A species from a bleak an icy land engulfed in a civil war. This species possesses limb-like tails and possible eye beams. Perhaps an overlap with Tyrant's species? 23. Tyrant Guardian Lurker The residents of a small island to the south of Odina split between possibly elemental tribes, one of which Tyrant was a leader. Lurker killed another member of his species and was banished from his home. Tyrant left his position to become a Dark Hunter during the Toa/Dark Hunter War. Guardian's tribe was betrayed and he was the only survivor. This species is commonly red and wields natural weapons such as claws, teeth, tusks, and bladed tails, though it is not unknown for them to have elemental affiliations or even basic abilities. Jerbraz, who cannot use Kanohi, and the inhabitants of Nynrah, intelligent crafters, are in there somewhere.
This character doesn't have a name yet, I'm intending it for roleplay and was wondering what you guys think of it, feel free to post your honest thoughts on it. If the image is too large then I'll have a link to a post on my tumblr blog below. http://chiroxthephantomblogger.tumblr.com/post/120850176962/just-something-for-the-bzpower-community
This is an idea I've had in my head for a while now. If you have ever taken a look at BS01's Unnamed Species list, you'll find there's a ridiculous number of sapient species in the MU. Many of them come from the Barraki, OoMN, and Dark Hunters, of which most had their own species. So, I was wondering if there was any potential for overlap? The MU is an interesting place. Toa, Matoran, and Skakdi have elemental subspecies. Perhaps in the others there could be more drastic appearance changes between the elements. For example, Lurker could be a the fire equivalent of, say, Guardian's species. Many of the changes could be accounted for by the mutations and experiments that seem to define Dark Hunters. Despite this, I would not say the Barraki are all one variations of one species. That seems rather unfair for Mata Nui to privilege one species over all the others in the MU. But I suppose the option is open. So, are there any overlaps you can think of? Perhaps Darkness could be of Brutaka's species, or Conjurer could be a Vortixx (advanced technology passed off as magic?), Triglax could be a Krahka (she's not on the list, but I would say she would be at least as intelligent as he is, and his employment might mean they would have little contact, and others would not realize what they are given shapeshifting powers), and Vanisher could be a member of Botar's species (perhaps a little farfetched given his appearance).
Pose Front Pose Side Front Back Weapon Large View I made this MOC a few years ago, too. At that point, I was working on a story called "Keeper of the Makuta" Some silly story about Antroz somehow escaping the death of the other Makuta, and being imprisoned, then escaping, then being hunted down, then finding the Mask of Shadows, yadda yadda yadda. Anyways, at that point, I was creating MOCs that were characters in the story. I really forget every single detail about this guy, though. Meh. Don't think I ever developed his character much, though. Or even revealed him, actually. Anyways, he's some generic guy with a shiny stick. The three feet on the stick actually were supposed to shoot energy beams at the main crystal, which combined them and shot them out the end, a la Death Star. I think he had some other power, but time has stripped that from my memory. I'm cleaning out a few different MOCs I've got images of on my computer(s). I've got one or two left, then maybe I'll repost the ones from the old forum. Give me your honest opinion on the MOC in the comments, please!
