MOD: Protectors of Generations Past: STONE

Recommended Posts

Gamut

Hello yet again, this MOD of the protector of STONE is part of my quest to mod every protector. I now present Golem, a member of the Six. He was the first protector to be killed by the traitor, Viper.

 

His story is linked to the other protector mods. You can check out their links in my Sig.

 

Protector (Guardian) of Stone - The Golem's Background story

 

The Region of Stone

While the title of "protector" meant the village head in almost all of Okoto, this was not the case in the Region of Stone. The duty of protector in the Stone Tribe was split into two heads, one of Guardian and the other of a Chief. The Chief was the village's figurehead, who lorded over decisions of the land. On the other hand, the Guardian was (simply put) a warrior.

 

The reason for this divide was that the monsters in the Region of Stone were abnormally powerful in comparison to other area's (save the Region of Water). Moreover, the region hosted the highest concentration of skull spiders, adding to the strain. As a result, the Guardians were frequently wounded or killed. The division of responsibilities lent greater stability to the Stone Tribe.

 

Golem

To survive the harsh battles and fell enemies of the Region, Golem resorted to a measure akin to Leviathan's (the protector of water). To defeat monsters, they became monsters themselves. Fusing their bodies with the armor and life force of Okoto's creatures. With each enemy he defeated, Golem preyed upon its essence.

 

However, this practice was frowned upon by the other protectors, as doing this toed the line between matoran and monster. Ancestors who went too far often degraded into deranged beasts who sought after matoran flesh. These were called Gha'Taj, meaning "possessed one," or "one possessed by evil."

 

It was a lonely road. Golem had put his humanity, on the scales, in exchange for the power to protect. He was hailed a hero in times of strife; however during times of peace he was shunned and feared by his village. Hushed voices calling him Gha'Taj.

Through years of duty, Golem slowly retreated from society, eventually appearing only to rend enemies apart, then disappearing back to the desert . He lost all restraint, fusing himself again and again with the essence of monsters.

 

However, before he crossed the line into Gha'Taj; Bulwark, the protector of fire, and Viper, the protector of earth, found him after an arduous search. What occurred that day Golem would never tell, but it was then that Okoto's protectors became the Six.

 

Build

As one who once consumed the life essence of his enemies, Golem's physical strength was unrivaled among the Six. This allowed him to effortlessly wield a heavy gun-cleaver, which he needed to defeat the malevolent monsters of the Region of Stone. On his right arm he wore a simple arm-guard with throwing-razors as a side weapon. To compensate for his lack of speed, Golem used a booster that gave him short but concentrated bursts of speed. The booster could only be used for a maximum of 3 seconds at a time, but for 3 seconds he cleanly outstripped the Six.

I think this guy is my favorite of all your protectors. I really like the color scheme, though it gets a little jumbled with all the shades of grey, sliver, and yellow. He definitely looks tough. I like the use of the upside-down Protector chestplate to make a sort of faceguard... scarf... thing. I might have to use it sometime. :D
