The Keelerak and the other Visorak were conquered by Makuta Gorast, and became part of the Brotherhood's armies, under Sidorak and Roodaka. Sidorak led the hordes throughout the Matoran Universe, in subjugating islands and mutating thousands of beings. After Makuta Teridax's defeat at the hands of the Toa Metru, he telepathically called Sidorak to bring the hordes to Metru Nui.
While in Metru Nui, Keelerak captured the Toa Metru on their way to the Coliseum. One of those Keelerak then reported to Sidorak, and showed him the Toa, trapped inside cocoons, and was then ordered to drop the Toa Metru. It proceeded to carry out its orders, but was ordered not to by Roodaka, who wished for the Toa to be injected with venom then dropped.
When the mutated Toa Hordika tried to rescue Turaga Dume from a Matoran Sphere, some Keelerak, Vohtarak, and Oohnorak trapped them on a bridge. The Keelerak later fought with the other Visorak against the Toa and Rahaga for a tower belonging to the Visorak in which the Visorak were trapped at the end of the battle, causing internal fights and the Toa winning the tower. Keelerak also attempted to stop Toa Hordika Nokama from obtaining her Makoki Stone, but failed. Later, some Keelerak tried to stop the Toa Hordika from getting the Kanohi Avohkii, but Toa Hordika Onewa used his Stone Rhotuka to encase it in stone, hiding its light from the Keelerak. After Vakama betrayed the Toa Hordika, the Keelerak and the other Visorak followed his command, up until the end of the Battle of Metru Nui, when Vakama disbanded the hordes, and most of the Keelerak left. Several Keelerak wished to overthrow Sidorak, and then replace him with a Keelerak, but this did not happen before the hordes were disbanded.
Centuries later, several Visorak, led by a Keelerak, arrived in Metru Nui, believing they had arrived early, as there was no one to be seen. They did not know that the other Visorak had already arrived at Metru Nui, nor did they know that the attempt to conquer the city had failed. Soon after they arrived, they encountered the Rahi Keetongu, and after a strenuous fight, twenty of the Visorak brought down Keetongu, while their Keelerak leader went towards the Rahaga and Turaga Dume who threatened it. Despite Turaga Dume's warnings, the Keelerak advanced, but was captured by Pouks' lasso Rhotuka, and then mutated into a spiked blob by Turaga Dume's "Reconstitute at Random" Kanoka disk.
During the Dark Hunter/Brotherhood of Makuta War, the Brotherhood managed to partially reassemble the Visorak hordes, and used some of the Visorak, including Keelerak, to attack a Dark Hunter fortress that formerly belonged to the Brotherhood.
All the Visorak, including Keelerak, came to Artidax when three of the surviving Toa Mahri placed the Heart of the Visorak there. After they arrived, volcanic eruptions triggered by the Order of Mata Nui wiped out the Keelerak and all the other Visorak breeds. Teridax recreated the species when he took control of the Matoran Universe, after which they followed his commands. When Teridax was killed, they along with the rest of the Visorak Horde became a wild species and emigrated to Spherus Magna.
Abilities and Traits
Keelerak are undisciplined and wild, and also the most unpredictable of all Visorak species, wanting to fight one moment, then disappearing to do something else the next. Members of this breed are known to become schemers, and have plotted in the past to overthrow the leaders of the Visorak Horde, and replace them with one of their own kind.
Their Rhotuka's power is acid, allowing it to eat through almost any substance on contact, including Protosteel. Keelerak are also known to leap into the air and spin wildly as an attack, using their razor-sharp legs as buzzsaws. They also have the standard Rhotuka power which paralyzes their victims.
Keelerak was released as a canister set in the winter of 2004/2005 in Europe, and in the summer of 2005 for North America. It contained forty-seven pieces, including a Rhotuka and Rhotuka launcher. Pieces from the set could be combined with the pieces from the Roporak set to create a Chute Lurker; with those of Vohtarak and Oohnorak to create a Parakrekks; or the other five Visorak sets to make the Zivon.
A mini Keelerak was released in the 2005 playsets Visorak Battle Ram, Battle of Metru Nui, Tower of Toa, and Visorak's Gate, the last of which is non-canon. The one-piece figure was molded in a blend of black and glow-in-the-dark plastic. Like the other mini Visorak, the mini Keelerak featured a clip between its mandibles with which it could grasp the Visorak webbing pieces included in each of the sets, but Keelerak could be distinguished from the other mini Visorak by the shape and texture of its mandibles.
A large model of a Keelerak was constructed entirely out of LEGO System Bricks, and made available for promotional use. It was given away in a contest through Cartoon Network.
