I've decided to go with a moth theme for this contest. The character is a cyborg moth man who is controlled by the moths, and the moths can form weapons when they swarm. They are contained within the large pod on his back. He travels by riding upon the swarm like a large cloud or a surf board. Also he is french.
Additionally, the large tubules on his shoulder and the smaller ones scattered about his body are capable of spewing large amounts of moth dust, which act as a smokescreen.
Looking forward to seeing everyone's entries evolve!
