Lehvak are created when Av-Matoran fulfill their destiny and transform into the mechanical insectoid Bohrok. They are then transported to Bohrok Nests to await the signal to cleanse the island camouflage of the Great Spirit Mata Nui. They are aided by the Bohrok Va, Lehvak Va.
The Lehvak swarms beneath the island of Mata Nui were awakened by Makuta Teridax, upon his defeat by the Toa Mata. Shortly after their awakening, the Lehvak invaded Le-Wahi and captured Turaga Matau, Lewa, and the Le-Matoran, excluding Tamaru and Kongu. In conjunction with the Nuhvok, they took over the village and enlisted the newly Krana-infected Matoran to their task, but with the help of the Boxor vehicles and a clever trap, a group of Matoran, including Kongu, Tamaru, Takua, and Nuparu, defeated them and the Le-Matoran were saved.
A swarm of Lehvak also attacked Po-Koro at one time, though they were relatively unsuccessful. Tahnok later came to the village to finish the job. In Ko-Wahi, Kopaka followed a swarm of Lehvak to the entrance of the Bohrok Nest, where the Toa Mata would later return to stop the Bohrok once and for all.
Abilities and Traits
The Lehvak were clever tacticians, never striking in one place for long and making it hard to predict where they would turn up next. They could work in swarms, but their optimal choice was to work in a smaller group. They practiced hit and run tactics and were probably the most individually motivated of all the Bohrok, more than capable of thinking and operating alone. The only real way to stop them was to corner a group and surprise each one individually.
Lehvak were the most dangerous of Bohrok because of their powerful Acid, which can dissolve any substance. They were also the only Bohrok designed for combat, intended to fight any who tried to interfere with the swarm's mission.
Like all Bohrok, they are capable of rolling into a ball to travel quickly. They can, along with all Bohrok, snap their heads forward as an offensive move or to launch their Krana at a foe to bring the foe into the swarm's control.
Lehvak used their Acid Shields to channel their powers.
Lehvak was released as a set in early 2002 and contained forty pieces. A randomly packed red Krana was included with the set. Lehvak can be combined with the Gahlok and Kohrak sets to create the Bohrok Kaita Ja or combined with the Tahnok set to create a Keras or combined with the Gahlok set to create the Ghekula.
