"There has to be another way. I refuse to believe the only way we can beat the Visorak is to behave like them. The drones are not responsible for all this. They should not have to suffer for it."
— Rahaga Norik, Rahi Beasts
|Known locations||Throughout Matoran Universe (formerly)|
The Colony Drones are harmless and simple Rahi.
After the Brotherhood of Makuta conquered the Visorak, Colony Drones were captured to be slaves to the horde. When the Visorak would migrate to new lands, they would take along many of these Rahi in containers and use their abilities to create energy spinners as food for the horde.[citation needed: RB?]
When the Visorak invaded the homeland of Toa Chiara, they brought along their Colony Drones. Chiara snuck into the Drones' enclosure and electrified them, so that any time the Visorak attempted to feed from the Drones, they would be shocked. When the Visorak went to find other sources of nourishment, they were picked off by Chiara.[TYQ, Ch. 1]
During the invasion of Metru Nui, the Rahaga debated over whether to have Metru Mantises attack the Drones, thus weakening the Visorak hordes. However, they decided against it, as they believed the innocent Drones did not deserve destruction.[RB]
When all the Visorak were drawn to the island of Artidax and killed by the volcanic eruption, the Colony Drones were released from service. However, when Makuta Teridax took over Mata Nui's body and recreated the Visorak, the Colony Drones were recaptured to support the horde.
Abilities and Traits
Colony Drones' Rhotuka spinners are made of an energy that other Rahi, like the Visorak, can feed off of.
The Drones never objected to their treatment because they were either not intelligent enough to know they were being mistreated, or they simply had been intimidated by the Visorak for so long that they knew no other way of life.
