Toa Lizena by Lol-Pretzel Toa Lizena by Lol-Pretzel
Lizena was the sole Toa Guardian of the island nation of Poliaz for a time. Its vaulted white stone architecture, wines, music and art were renowned across the Matoran Universe. While technologically lacking, the Poliazhi had money to spare to buy useful devices from other nearby cultures, such as the Vortixx. Their location also made them the final stop for pilgrims of many species travelling to the Holy Island of Korrothis.

Lizena's job as a toa consisted more of dealing with art theives and street gangs than any real foreign threat. That is, until the Poliazhi made an enemy of Makuta Gorast.

More pictures, story and MOCs on Lizena's page on MOCpages!

Lizena's structure isn't the most complicated, but this is a character that has been in my brain for years and sorely needed building. She's rather less feminine looking than most of my she-toa. Her armour is heavy and decorative, meant to resemble the baroque style of her home city. The mask is a Sanok, as well, just moulded to look like the Mask of Light for artistic reasons.

Credits to :iconthat-1-unique-skakdi: as well. Lizena's design is based very much on the style of the characters in his drawings. Check him out if you haven't already!

EDIT:
~That-1-Unique-Skakdi totally drew Lizena today! :D

Despite being subtle, I could tell this was a female MOC just by looking at it

Great job with the hands, and armor was made to resemble her hometown's baroque style, you say? Artistic!

I like what you did with the lower legs, I had to look twice before I realized they weren't custom.

A very good MOC! 

I can see the femininity of the character to an extent.

Build wise this is great, love the decorative skirt as well.

Other than that, I'm surprised that she doesn't have some kind of melee weapon.

She has a buckler. Instead of using a melee weapon per se, Lizena is far more likely to fight dirty and up close and use her heavy armour as her weapon.

They're all over the place. A lot of the Bara Magna sets had them thrown in because of the little "life counter" gimmick they had.

Mhm. Lightning. She channels her powers through her weapon too. It fires crystals a bit like the needler from the Halo franchise.

very interesting i never thought of lightning cos most of these type of toa were yellow with gold which wasn't quite a very nice look for me

According to official canon, Toa of Lightning are Blue/White. Blue/Grey in this case, but close enough. I like to vary. I have a couple more Lightning toa coming up who have different colour schemes, but still based around being blue/white.

Blue/Gold or Blue/Yellow is supposed to be for psychic toa.

The electricity slizers/throwbots were black and purple. Going really old school with the design then I'd guess. :)

I'm afraid to say that a comment from ~1The-Messenger1 on Ember summarises much of what I thought about Lizena: "i'm not sure how this is female though, nothing about the body's characteristics imply female but it's still a really good moc."
But, as I'm one of those people who wishes that others would stop obsessing over genders, I shan't press the subject. The limbs, while simple in structure, are well decorated. I also like the new direction you're taking in the presentation of your MOCs!

I beg to differ. Lizena was designed to look slightly androgynous, but the proportions are still more female than male. It's all in the hips.

This is an awesome Toa, and I don't think it ever needs to be obvious or even apparent at all what the gender of a Toa is just from looking; technically gender is just a mental difference for Toa.

That's a good point.
I actually have a theory that it's not features we regard as feminine that matoran/toa use to distinguish gender. It's colour. All female toa/matoran have blue colouration.

I know it is, but I thought it would work in this instance. Poliaz is a very artistic society, and Lizena is their only toa, so she's decorated to look the part.
