"They were as territorial and aggressive as they were slimy and disgusting."

Lohrak are vicious winged Rahi.

History

Sometime before the rise of the League of Six Kingdoms, the Lohrak species was created by Makuta Chirox using Viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the Rahi to inhabit the Matoran Universe.

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.

The Toa Metru, attempting to rescue the Matoran of Metru Nui, stumbled upon a nest of the Lohrak. They were able to fend off the Rahi, and escaped on a Vahki Transport.

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.

Lohrak also made it to Mata Nui, and made scattered appearances there. They later returned to the Matoran Universe after the Bohrok were awakened to cleanse the island.

Mutant Lohrak

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.

Set Information

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.

A Lohrak as it may have appeared in Legends of Metru Nui, had it not been omitted

Quotes

"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..."
Mutran, The Mutran Chronicles

"Mutated Lohrak are easily three to five times the size of an average specimen, and one is more than enough to create a disaster area."
Rahaga Norik, Rahi Beasts

"Lohrak had always been more than happy to squeeze the life out of prey."
— Narrator, Web of the Visorak

Trivia

  • The Lohrak was originally scheduled to make an appearance in Legends of Metru Nui, but it did not make it into the final cut. They only appeared in the novelization.
