"They were as territorial and aggressive as they were slimy and disgusting."
— Narrator, Legends of Metru Nui
Lohrak are vicious winged Rahi.
Chirox's goal was to create a flying serpent with enough exterior slime to slither through small cracks, but not enough to leave a trail. The Lohrak he created, however, could not do so, which caused Chirox to work for a long time to perfect his creation. Mutran saw this as an opportunity to outdo Chirox, so he set to work trying to beat his rival. In the time just before the Great Cataclysm, Mutran succeeded in his work, and the old version of the Lohrak was replaced by the new one.
The Lohrak were first discovered in Metru Nui by Onu-Matoran Miners in Onu-Metru, while they were searching for Lightstones. The serpents quickly spread throughout the city and became a serious menace to the Matoran and every Metru soon had a tale of a frightening Lohrak encounter. Turaga Dume at one point stopped mining projects and announced them a protected species in hopes of preventing more of these creatures from being unearthed.
Once the Visorak arrived in Metru Nui, the Lohrak became a target of the spider creatures and were hunted down and mutated into even more horrid creatures.
The Mutant Lohrak were Lohrak that were caught and mutated by the Visorak. The Toa Metru encountered and defeated a Sonic Entity created by a mutant Lohrak's powers when travelling from the Test Track before meeting one. They fought the Rahi, but soon into the battle malfunctioning Vahki joined the fray also attacking the Toa, knocking Nokama and Onewa into the Archives. Visorak then also arrived but, with the assistance of the Rahaga, the Toa Metru were able to drive away their enemies, including the Lohrak.
Abilities and Traits
The Lohrak's bat-like wings allow them to fly at extreme speeds, and their rows of razor-sharp teeth make them highly dangerous. Lohrak use claws on the ends of their tails to snatch prey and carry them off in surprise attacks before finishing them off and feeding. Their flesh is also poisonous.
Under normal circumstances, Lohrak are relatively small, but the mutant Lohrak was around 2.2 Bio (ten feet or three meters) long with a 4.4 Bio (twenty foot or 6.1 meter) wingspan. Exposure to Hordika Venom gave it a power scream ability similar to the Power Scream Rahkshi. Its screech emitted a sonic force that could shatter rock, metal, and almost anything else. It also had the power to create creatures composed entirely of sonic force.
The Lohrak is a set combiner model of the Turaga Dume & Nivawk and Nidhiki sets; the instructions were released in the LEGO Magazine. Pressing a bar on the Lohrak's back allows one to open the lower jaw. Upon releasing the bar, the jaw snaps closed.
"I simply knew how long Chirox had been struggling to develop a flying serpent with just the right amount of exterior slime to allow it to slither through small crevices, while not so much that it left a trail wherever it went. And as soon as he was back in his body, I was going to take a great deal of joy in introducing him to my Lohrak, wings, slime, and all..."
