I don't know what to say, to be honest, I'm just impressed with this new character already. Her being a rebellious weaponsmith with attitude is actually a pretty new one to me, so I appreciate it just for the novelty of it, other than that I really like the design; it's bulky and rough, but it's still appropriately feminine for a sort of "tough girl" kinda style, if you will.
Yeah, her feet are a little big and her torso looks too small, but there's not much else I can harp on. Great job, nick.
Yeah... I intentionally wade her "wonky." Sometimes it's fun to see a character who's... PURPOSEFULLY misshapen... like Pohatu. It's unconventional, but that kinda makes her unique. She's just very steadfast.
I was surprised to find out that she was a girl, considering that her name has a masculine suffix, and her build looks for all purposes, male. Well, considering Bionicles don't really have any secondary traits to speak of, and Matoran isn't based off of Latin, this makes sense. So, good job, I guess, for doing the unexpected with something that should be expected, and I'm kind of fond of her chunky look. But, she disregards her job description, ignores safety any and all safety protocols to make things "more destructive" in mass produced products, possibly injuring or killing Matoran all over the island, refuses to acknowledge criticism, is cruel to Toa Unda, and dreams of making the most powerful and destructive weapon ever. How exactly is she a good guy? The Toa Metru had to deal with Matoran who were as/less corrupt than her!
You say destructive, but she'd say "effective." She isn't malicious, just immature. She takes weapon-smithing so lightly, it's like.. well, a toy. For her, it's like playing with Legos. She doesn't like following the instructions... which is a problem, in her case. In fact, I think I'll make it a running gag to never show her using the same weapon in any two chapters. She'll always be customizing her weapons, always crafting some new hodgepodge of things she just felt like slapping together to see what would happen, sometimes using actual, recognizable lego pieces.
Unfortunately, yes, she does tend to completely disregard others in her pursuits, and as a Toa aboard the Manibus tasked with protecting the Matoran, she'll need to shape up and stop thinking about herself all the time. It'll be part of her character development. Sorry for spoiling that, but... yeah.
