Resistance to elemental powers[OGQ: Nov 24 2010, 11:13 PM]

Wary of the threat the Toa could pose to the inhabitants of Spherus Magna if they came into conflict, the Great Beings created a living weapon to hunt down and destroy Toa. They named it Marendar, after an Agori word meaning "salvation."[TYQ, Ch. 1] Marendar was placed in a vault beneath Bara Magna to be released if the Toa went rogue.[OGDi: Aug 11 2010, 05:14 PM]
After 100,000 years, Mata Nui reformed Spherus Magna, and dozens of Toa emerged onto the planet. Detecting an influx of Toa Power, Marendar activated and smashed through the wall of its vault.[TYQ, Ch. 1]
Abilities and Traits
Marendar tracks Toa by detecting their Toa Power and has a natural resistance to elemental powers.[OGQ: Nov 24 2010, 11:13 PM] The Great Beings believed that no Toa team could stand against it.[TYQ, Ch. 1]
- Marendar was developed around the same time as the elemental power inhibitor, but by different Great Beings.
- Velika may have helped to create Marendar.

- Greg Farshtey provided this pronunciation on the BZPower forums, where the slang term "mah" was filtered to its standard form "my."[OGDi: Sep 10 2008, 11:15 PM] As such, the pronunciation was erroneously listed as "my-renn-DARR." It is unclear whether the original syllable was intended as "MAH" or "mah" as it seems BZPower's software filtered both strings to an all-lowercase "my."
