About the MOC
Vhisora is one of my oldest MOCs, and has stayed unchanged for a considerable amount of time. In fact, I believe this MOC has gone the longest without change of all my MOCs. The last time I altered this MOC was in 2007 to give it additional armoring and the Mahri tube that connects its sword to its body. Since them, I haven't changed a thing on it. Now I'm not sure if I should honor that heritage of keeping this design, or update it. I initially had three of this kind of MOC, two combining two of the 6 original elements. Fire/stone, Water/air, Earth/Ice. I dissolved this set, changed the Water/Air into strictly water, and incorporated it into the set that became my anti toa series that I eventually dubbed The Insurgence of Darkness
Vhisora is a genderless autonomous cyborg prototype created by Makuta Mutran
. It is not a fully thinking or feeling entity though. It was initially designed for submersible combat and surveillance, but could also double as an infantry unit on land. The prototype was never put into full production for the army of the Brotherhood of Makuta
because while it is obedient, it didn't interpret Mutran's commands properly. It had a tendency to not take prisoners of any kind. This turned out to be a major problem when he needed to interrogate prisoners or used it to fight other Makuta. Having not been able to write the faulty protocol out of the programing, Mutran put Vhisora into dormancy. It stayed there for many years until Remaku
paid Mutran a visit and took it off his hands. Remaku now uses Vhisora when tactless muscle and brute unyielding force is needed. If Vhisora is engaged in combat it won't stop until its target is killed or it is damaged too severely to function. This was another reason Mutran deemed the experiment a failure, it wouldn't take to any self preservation protocol.
"Its like it has a will to kill, and only that. No will to live, no will to survive, just a cold savage desire to destroy."~Mutran explaining Vhisora to Remaku
