Puppet And Puppeteer

I won't begin to say that I understand the mythos and story behind these MOCs, I'm sure there's plenty going on here in that respect, but I haven't had enough tea or sleep. I will say when builder A Plastic Infinity posted Turaga Retei-atomn last week I was confused by the floating chains. But now it's clear, and pretty cool. What really caught my attention was there's a miniature of the first character in the second MOC, that's pretty genius.
