First Toa Team: Toa Waive by Faybos First Toa Team: Toa Waive by Faybos
UPDATE: Waive now has a better body shape and overall design.


"Your lesson begins!"


Name: Waive

Element: Water

Toa Tool of Choice: Bladed Aqua Fans

Kanohi: Great Karahn, Mask of Knowledge


Background:

Waive was a simple fisher on the ports of Dokuso Island. The best of the best, she caught fish of all shapes and sizes and in her spare time travelled to Ga-Doku's libraries in the pursuit of knowledge. One day she came across a toa stone, given to her by Toa Lesovikk who was in search for a bright young Ga-Matoran he met in a dream. Taking notice of her, Lesovikk kneels and hands her the stone. It transforms young Waive into a grown woman in the blink of an eye. Marveled at the new found information, she soon realized her mask had evolved as well; she was able to acquire information at any point in time should she lay her eyes on it. At this point she was inducted into the First Toa Team, acting as the team's source of information and co-powerhouse. 


Abilities: 

Like any other Toa of Water she can create, control, and absorb water. Her big size enables her to channel and absorb more elemental energy than most Toa of Water. She uses her Bladed Aqua Fans to channel her powers.

Her Kanohi Kahran is able to gather any information on people, places or things she lays her eyes on. She can learn the various substances say rocks or rahi she's never seen and the mask will project the knowledge so she will it. She can only acquire surface knowledge (Ex. She cannot know what you've done in your past life if it wasn't documented at the time of the Kahran's creation.). However should the the mask be heavily damaged or removed she will lose all knowledge acquired over time with the mask's use and suffer limited amnesia up to the point of removal. This limits her in switching kanohi at moment's notice unless she willingly removes it herself.


Personality:

Waive is sometimes the target of fat jokes (this is not the case, she's only big in frame.) and her self-esteem isn't as strong as the other members of her team but they all respect her for her selfless and motherly demeanor; Especially Roak. She is essentially a very nice girl and loves teaching her Ga-Matoran sisters who frequent the city's schools but is very short with troublemakers. Her initial appearance gives people a calming aura, but anger her and you will soon see the epitome of a raging tidal wave. She is also very articulate with her words, choosing to say them clearly. When no one is around she would sing songs she learned as a matoran on the hills just outside of town under the night sky and would often times fall asleep there. Waive has an incurable fear of claustrophobia, getting dizzy or light-headed in enclosed spaces (her size doesn't help either in some cases); because of this she doesn't stay in her hut for too long.

Dayyum this girl is some great eye-candy.

Those fans are and interesting and unusual choice of weaponry I've never really seen before, and that collar of hers makes me instantly think of Lulu from FF10 - I can seriously see her strutting around in that beautiful, fur-lined dress like some kind of goddess.

Also those are some AMAZING LEGS + little swirl decor on her feet Meow Love :meowlove: Meow Love

Haha she's mine as well pal.

Sure! Colour her away ^^ She's gold (for armour and trimmings), Mata blue (primary), Metru blue (secondary)

Her eyes are orange, but I'm not 100% sure.

This really is an excellent design! You've really pushed yourself with the body type. I think I already told you this earlier but I still think you don't need to accentuate her figure by making the waist thinner. She can be 'beefy' and still have a wide waist at the same time.

Overall the armour and weapon design is very good though! I'm not personally a fan of the 'merged fingers' look though, but I'm not sure if in this case it's because you want the fingers to be literally merged or just a style choice/experiment. The pose is quite solid too. And the water effects, though subtle, speak volumes too.
Also; nice background for the character! It's a leeetle bit based on main-stream Ga-matoran personalities and habits, but then again not all characters need to push the envelope.

Thank you!

Unfortunately I noticed that too late. Perhaps if I shrunk her upper body down to give her more of a pair-shape it would have turned out better. I wanted to give her a wide waist but was so caught up with the angle and posing. ^^;

It's part experiment, part she needs these hands and feet to propel herself better underwater. They're still quite operable. Yay for successful water effects.

Waive was really hard to work with, I can imagine her personality but putting it to paper isn't quite easy. You have a better time with this, I'd be happy to hear any suggestions you'd have for her backstory.

Welcome!

All good! As far as the posing goes, you achieved it very well.

Righteo.

Yeah, character writing gets cumbersome, especially when you need to deal with a bigger team, as you did. Hmmm I don't have very specific suggestions, but maybe you could play around with what 'type' of nice she is and how that is influenced. It's really easy to write 'she is a calming individual' and another to write 'she thoroughly ensures people's happiness' (which could also suggest she feels she needs to please people) or 'she tries her best to keep arguments to a minimum' (which could also suggest she could hesitate or treat arguments as disasters). Basically, try and pull positives and negatives from features, and link them to back stories accordingly. I dunno if that helps at all haha.

Bad ass fighter chick, one of my favorite types of character. :) And I have to say the mask idea was a lot better than some of the later masks. Great work.
