"Find the truth, no matter what barrier blocks your way. Deception can strike you down, as surely as any blow from an enemy. You are a Toa without armor in a chamber of swords, Vakama, and only the truth can protect you."

Krakua was a De-Matoran living on the Tren Krom Peninsula, and is currently a Toa and member of the Order of Mata Nui.

Biography

Matoran

Five years ago, while in his village, Krakua was approached by the Matoran Mazeka. Vultraz, an evil Ta-Matoran assigned to capture Krakua, attacked the De-Matoran village with a sonic device, knocking the Matoran of Sonics unconscious. Mazeka managed to cover Krakua's ears, and afterwards the invisible Order of Mata Nui member Jerbraz carried him to safety. Krakua was then taken to a place to be trained and be prepared to use his full power once he became a Toa.

Toa

Krakua recently became a Toa, with the assistance of the Order of Mata Nui. He then became a servant of the Order, acting as a liaison between the Order and Toa. The Order was attempting to avoid placing Krakua into situations in which he may have to use lethal force, which would break the Toa Code. Krakua sought out Lesovikk, and gave him information about the Pit and about someone who would take care of Karzahni should the tyrant be defeated.

Krakua later traveled to Metru Nui with Helryx and Brutaka to give Takanuva valuable information regarding the Toa Nuva. After bringing the partially light-drained Toa down to a chamber in the Archives, they placed a Kratana on his mask to show him the history of the Toa Mata and gave him the requisite information needed to assist the Toa Nuva. When the vision ended, Helryx asked Takanuva to go to Karda Nui. Upon being introduced to Brutaka, Takanuva refused. Helryx was eventually able to convince him to go, and Krakua gave Takanuva the Great Sundial, which had been shrunk by Brutaka. They then sent him to Karda Nui using Brutaka's Olmak. After he was gone, Krakua was slightly uncomfortable with the fact that they did not tell Takanuva the whole truth, particularly about his involvement. Helryx dismissed it, and led the other two out of the Archives to prepare for the war. As a result of the coming war, and Helryx's realization that it would be costly, Krakua was recruited, going from a servant of the Order to a full member.

Krakua was later sent to Voya Nui with a member of Botar's species to retrieve Axonn and inform him of the coming war. The trio then teleported back to Daxia.

Much later, Krakua was called upon by Hahli during the Siege of Metru Nui by the Brotherhood of Makuta. The Toa Mahri of Water told Krakua about Vakama's plan to drive off an invading force of Rahkshi, which called for Krakua to use his sonics powers to awaken a group of Bohrok residing in the Archives. Despite being skeptical about the plan, he succeeded in the task, and the Bohrok emerged onto the surface of Metru Nui and battled against the Rahkshi.

With Makuta Teridax killed and the entire Matoran Universe rendered uninhabitable, Krakua migrated onto Spherus Magna along with the other survivors of the Makuta's death.[1]

Future

Krakua will eventually become the lone hero of a besieged island fortress. During this time, a vision of Krakua will be given to Vakama through a "Kratana", who receives it during his time as a Toa Metru. Krakua will inform him that he would one day send the Toa Inika on a mission, which he cannot do anything about save for waiting and hoping. Vakama does not receive the remainder of the vision, as the "Kratana" is removed by Makuta Teridax.

Alternate Universes

Toa Empire Alternate Universe

In this alternate universe, Krakua is part of a rebel team led by Lesovikk and Pohatu, the goal of which was to crush Tuyet's Toa Empire. During the confrontation against the empire, Krakua shattered Gali's armor and Kanohi using his Sonic powers.

Abilities and Traits

Like all De-Matoran, Krakua had very acute hearing. However, despite this, he had a habit of humming to himself, which caused many of his fellow De-Matoran to avoid him.

As a Toa of Sonics, Krakua is able to create, control and absorb sound. This allows him to create sound waves or concentrated beams of sound, use sonic waves to disrupt a structure's integrity, and absorb all of the sound in an area to create a field of silence. As with other Order operatives, his mind is shielded from mental assaults.

Mask and Tools

He wears a Kanohi Suletu, the Great Mask of Telepathy, which allows him to read the minds of others, and to project his own; Krakua's Suletu is in the shape of a Hau. His Sonic Vibration Sword can deliver devastating sonic vibrations capable of shattering mountains.

Trivia

  • Krakua was created by John Dexter. His creation was the winning entry in The LEGO Group's Brickmaster Toa Building Contest. The winning entry used a Hau, as the Suletu piece did not exist at the time of the contest. This is reflected in the story as being a Hau-shaped Suletu.
