EDIT: Argh, the title got cut off. It was originally "THEORY: Skull Scorpio’s awful looking tail, and why it may actually make sense". If an admin/mod could shorten it to, say, "THEORY: The logic in Skull Scorpio's ugly tail" or something, I'd be quite grateful. Ah yes, Skull Skorpio, with his aesthetically unappealing Technic whatever-the-heck tacked onto his legs... ...wait, his legs? Oh yeah. This is something I presumed the moment I saw Skull Scorpio. His tail being attached to that torso bone's pelvis via what appear to be skeletal thighs, brought up an interesting idea... What if those were his thighs? The Skull Army are reanimated, re-amalgamated skeletal warriors, crafted from the remains of ancient Okotoan residents by Kulta's dark magical powers (as denoted by the glowing orange patches on their undead bodies). But what's to say these skeletons we see bumbling around on Okoto are in the original layout that they were when they were buried? What's to say that Kulta didn't take a little bit of creative license when magicking up his spooky soldiers? My idea is that Skull Scorpios were originally humanoid skeletons, which were then reassembled by Kulta on their backs. Legs were attached to and grown from what were their spines, and their heads and arms were twisted back to face up away from the body. The original legs were left as only thighs, to which the mechanical clamping tails, amalgamated from other mechanical components in the earth, were attached to what were originally their knees. In short, Skull Scorpios are incredibly unnatural, eldritch abominations, which spit in the face of anatomy and logic. So, yeah, that's how I envision it. Or at least, that's how I try and make sense of why the heck Skull Scorpio's tail looks so goshdarn awful. TL;DR My idea is that Skull Scorpios used to be regular skeletons, but were reformed on their backs with big mechanical pinching weapons attached onto what were their knees.
I have a quick question about Skull Scorpios; Are they aligned with the element of Stone? Part of me thinks they are, as their predominant colour (trans. lime) is the energy colour of the Stone element, and because scorpions in our world are predominantly desert-based creatures. However, part of me isn't sure because there's no real confirmation of any of the Skull Creatures (aside from Skull Warriors) being aligned with or utilising the elements at all.
