|Keetongu's Island, Visorak|
|Tools||Hook Blades, Tridax Pod|
Over 100,000 years ago, Chirox was brought into being by the Great Spirit Mata Nui from a substance known as Antidermis. Like all other Makuta, he was created to be a member of the Brotherhood of Makuta, an organization devoted to serving the will of Mata Nui. Chirox created numerous breeds of Rahi beast to populate the Matoran Universe. However, Chirox's creations were always twisted in spirit and contributed nothing of use to the environment. Chirox often worked with Mutran, a fellow scientist.
Following the Matoran Civil War on Metru Nui, Chirox was assigned to supervise the region of the Matoran Universe that included Keetongu's homeland and Tobduk's homeland. Later, he created the Visorak species on Tobduk's homeland, and when the Rahi attacked and destroyed a village on the island, the Brotherhood renamed the island Visorak.
When Teridax demanded a convocation to reveal his plan and claim leadership, Chirox was one of the first to side with him and discussed with Mutran and Teridax how best to strike at the Great Spirit. Before the Brotherhood was discovered to have turned into a malevolent organization, Chirox had a squad of Toa Hagah detailed to him. These Toa were killed after Toa Norik and his team rebelled against Teridax.
During a meeting, the Makuta were suddenly afflicted by a series of symptoms. Chirox learned that the Makuta had actually evolved by studying part of Kojol's Antidermis and his armor, announcing it to the Makuta. Chirox also discovered that they could take over robots in this new evolved form, using it to play a trick on Mutran, although Mutran destroyed the Exo-Toa he was inhabiting at the moment, forcing Chirox to return to his armor.
Sometime later, Chirox approached Mutran over the latter's version of the Lohrak, a Rahi Chirox had originally created. Their argument ended, however, when Teridax caused the Great Cataclysm, resulting in the fortress on Destral collapsing on them.
For the next millennium, Chirox competed with Mutran in Rahi creation, causing some animosity between them.
Chirox and seven other Makuta were assigned to invade Karda Nui by air in order to control Mata Nui's situation and prevent the creation of any more Toa of Light by turning Av-Matoran into Shadow Matoran by using mutated Kraata called Shadow Leeches, created shortly before entering Karda Nui, by Mutran and himself. The two also worked with Tridax to create the Tridax Pods to house the Leeches.
A week after invading the core, Chirox, Antroz and Vamprah, were permanently blinded by the bright light caused by Toa Mahri Matoro when he revived Mata Nui from death. To compensate, the Makuta each chose Shadow Matoran to act as their eyes; Chirox chose Kirop to act as his.
The Av-Matoran took advantage of the new developments and attacked the weakened Makuta. During that battle, the Toa Nuva appeared, scaring the Makuta back to their lair. Once they had regrouped, Chirox began to voice his suspicions about Teridax's plan, wondering if Teridax had not sent them to the core to simply be rid of them. Antroz remained loyal to the plan, quelling Chirox's doubts, and sent Vamprah to fetch Mutran.
While Mutran worked on creating a fast flying Rahi, Chirox stood by and criticized it. Unsatisfied by Mutran's work, he tossed a Shadow Matoran into the Protodermis vat, creating a hideous creature Antroz deemed perfect, despite Mutran's objections.
Chirox, along with Antroz and Vamprah, arrived at the Shadow Leech Hive just as Kopaka and Solek defeated Mutran. The three Makuta easily defeated Kopaka and Solek, and then knocked out the other Toa and Matoran with a mental attack. While Antroz interrogated the Toa, Chirox and Vamprah held the Av-Matoran hostage until Pohatu saved them. The Toa destroyed the Shadow Leech vats and then ran through Chirox and Vamprah using Pohatu's Kakama Nuva, causing the two great pain. Afterwards, the hive was destroyed by the Toa Ignika.
Shortly after the hive was destroyed, the Makuta regrouped at Antroz's cavern. Icarax arrived afterwards and the Makuta ventured to the last remaining Av-Matoran village to destroy it, only to find it deserted. They sped back to their cavern to stop the Toa from getting the keystone, but they were too late. The Toa had already gotten the stone and ambushed the Makuta before they reached the cavern. Chirox and Kirop were engaged by Kopaka, Pohatu, Solek, and Photok, and began to lose ground against them. He willingly headed down to the Swamp of Secrets when Vican delivered Mutran's message telling the Makuta to regroup there and join their fellow Makuta.
Chirox and Bitil were dispatched by Antroz to attack Takanuva, during the Battle for the Codrex. Chirox used his Shelek to turn Takanuva deaf and mute so they could ambush him. Takanuva responded violently, bombarding Chirox with light bolts, and throwing Kirop off his back. Chirox and Bitil managed to escape when the latter used his chain lightning power to knock the Toa out. Later on, Chirox and the other Makuta in Karda Nui learned of the Energy Storms. Blind, hurt, and unable to escape, Chirox was killed in the storm.
In an alternate Spherus Magna, the Makuta were created by the Great Beings as creators of new life forms and teachers of the Three Virtues. They were also devoid of all shadow, having devoted much time to becoming beings of light.
Abilities and Traits
Chirox was one of the top scientists of the Brotherhood of Makuta and was infamous for creating vicious and destructive Rahi. He lived to do experiments and could typically be seen toying with some Rahi to make it more ferocious. He disliked Mutran's creations because he felt that they did not have enough teeth or were not intelligent enough. His creations were less useful to the environment as a whole, something he was known to be angry about when discussing it.
Chirox possessed many special powers typical to his species, which included elemental Shadow powers, Kraata production, and the forty-two Kraata powers. Chirox often made use of his Teleportation power to travel the vast distances between his individual assigned locations. Of the many Shadow abilities Chirox had control over, he was particularly skilled with manipulating a Shadow Hand; unlike most Makuta, he had enough skill with it to throw objects and to avoid the automatic retraction it usually performs.
Mask and Tools
Chirox wore the Kanohi Shelek, Mask of Silence. It could temporarily disable an opponent's ability to speak or hear. He also carried a Tridax Pod full of Shadow Leeches, and fought with a pair of Hook Blades.
|STRENGTH: 15||AGILITY: 12|
|TOUGHNESS: 15||MIND: 16|
Chirox was released in winter 2008 and contained forty-nine pieces, as one of the three Phantoka Makuta canister sets. Pressing a button on Chirox's back opens his ribcage to deploy a Tridax pod holding the set's four Shadow Leeches. Chirox, along with the rest of the canister Phantoka, can "link-up" with his corresponding Matoran set. His arms are also folded up and can extend. Chirox's mask features a blend of black and silver plastic, as most Makuta sets seen so far feature blended mask colors.
