Gallery Legends speak of the primeval crab-legged warrior Koeras, a hero from the time before time. It is said that in the anarchic, primordial era before the rise of the Mask Makers, his name was already revered. For with his Icicle Axe and Chillsaw Shield, he channeled the untamed power of the winter blizzard, vanquishing many a fearsome fiend. Some say that he was admired by even Ekimu, that the smith drew inspiration for the shape of his Protector masks from the form of Koeras' ornate helmet. But the pandemonium of the ancient era in which he thrived could not last, for in time the Mask Makers rose and tamed the chaos, ushering in an age of peace with no place for such a warrior. Left without purpose, some say he sailed in search of distant wars. Others say he eventually died of old age, or that bereft of meaning he committed suicide. I alone know the truth, or so I claim - with a great enchantment, he froze himself in the heart of the Region of Ice's greatest glacier, to sleep in frozen peace until a time of chaos called for an icy warrior once more. Then Koeras shall awaken, intent upon waging a great war for justice once more. Let us hope he is not angry that he must share the role... * * * After building so many Rahkshi, I wanted to experiment with a drastically different shape. Koeras, with the six-legged centaur thing going on, was the first thing I came up with. One part of his build I'm particularly proud of is his helmet - Gelu's on a modern G2 head. It required quite a bit of finagling and some technically illegal connections to make it work but I'm glad it did, since the blue Glatorian heads aren't the right shade and I feel like using the new head really helps him to fit into the lore of Okoto rather than Bara Magna.
