The Kanohi Dragon is a powerful Rahi with a history of destruction and conflict.
The first known appearance of the Kanohi Dragon was early in Metru Nui's history, when there were much fewer buildings. The creature dwelt near Ta-Metru and would fly around Metru Nui, causing the skies to blacken and soot to fall from its body as it snaked through the sky. The Dragon attacked, but was defeated by an unknown team of Toa that was visiting Metru Nui. They trapped it in an undersea cave, where it was then frozen behind a one-hundred foot layer of ice. Around 3500 years before the Great Cataclysm, Vezok, Reidak, and Avak were sent to Metru Nui by the Shadowed One to release the Kanohi Dragon, which they did. The Dragon then proceeded to renew its attack once more, rampaging through the Archives towards Ta-Metru, where it began absorbing heat from the Great Furnace.
Soon the Toa Mangai were summoned to Metru Nui, to help contain the beast. They faced it in a month-long battle. The Toa were victorious and the Kanohi Dragon was defeated, mostly by four Toa of Ice. After they defeated it, part of the team took the Kanohi Dragon to Xia, where Roodaka took it and imprisoned it. The Vortixx later claimed that they did not have the Kanohi Dragon, but others believed that they were keeping it to study it and possibly create a machine similar to it.
After Botar moved the Tahtorak to Xia, the Kanohi Dragon was freed, and fought against it. The battle between the two massive Rahi caused massive destruction to the city, even tearing large chunks out of The Mountain, but the battle was disrupted by the newly recreated Toa Hagah. After the Tahtorak had weakened the Kanohi Dragon enough, Toa Norik used his slowness Rhotuka and Kualus used his Ice powers to subdue the Rahi. Toa Iruini then took care to prevent it from being consumed by The Mountain by moving its leg away from the landmark on the advice of a nearby Vortixx. The Vortixx then re-imprisoned it on their island.
Abilities and Traits
The Kanohi Dragon is an immense Rahi, possessing mammoth strength. Its body is decorated by glittering scales shaped like Kanohi, which often lure unsuspecting victims into a trap. The dragon is highly susceptible to cold temperatures, with frigid enough temperatures rendering it comatose. The Vortixx employed this weakness to keep the dragon contained. It also possesses the ability to fly. It can also breath fire, and has smoldering tail blades.
