The Crystal Serpents were Artakha's first and only attempt to create Rahi.


Legend has it that Artakha believed he could create creatures as easily as he did tools. His results were the four Crystal Serpents, enormous crystalline Rahi. Realizing they could not be tamed but being unwilling to destroy them, Artakha set them free and they migrated to the four corners of his island. After this failure, Artakha never attempted to create Rahi again. The Crystal Serpents remained dormant most of the time, but they come out to feed once in about two centuries. Although not a Crystal Serpent's favorite meal when awake, Artakha's Matoran know to stay clear of them.[2]

2,500 years ago, when Makuta Kojol invaded the island of Artakha, two Crystal Serpents incinerated his first wave of Visorak.[3]

After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, the Crystal Serpents emigrated from the Matoran Universe to Spherus Magna.[1]
