The Element Lord of Earth is the leader of the Earth Tribe and one of the seven Element Lords.[2]

Biography

The Lord of Earth was a female warrior of the Earth Tribe who had a role in the tribe's government.[3][4] She was approached by the Great Beings to take part in an experiment. She was fused with her element, becoming one with Earth, and was made ruler of the Earth Tribe.[2]

Due to their connection with the subterranean world, the Earth Tribe knew of Energized Protodermis before it leaked on to the surface of Spherus Magna. The Lord of Earth contemplated keeping the substance for herself and her tribe, but she realized it would make her tribe a target. However, she still wanted control of the resource. Assuming Energized Protodermis would come to the surface at some point, she sat back and waited for someone else to discover it. Once the Ice Tribe found a spring of Energized Protodermis,[5] the Lord of Earth and her tribe subtly encouraged the Ice Agori to seize control of the resource, knowing it would provoke conflict.[6]

This resulted in the start of the Core War. The Lord of Earth chose to abstain from the war, and the Earth Tribe instead professed a wish for peace while secretly undermining efforts to end the conflict. The Lord of Earth planned to wait until the other tribes had exhausted themselves in battle so she could easily seize the well. However, before she could make her move, the Shattering ended the Core War.[6]

The Lord of Earth was stranded on Bota Magna,[7][8] along with most of the surviving Earth Tribe.[6]

After the Shattering, it became common knowledge that the Earth Tribe was responsible for the Core War. As a consequence, the Lord of Earth and her tribe were ostracized from society.[6]

Over 100,000 years later, Mata Nui used the powers of the Prototype Robot and the Great Spirit Robot to bring the three fragments of Spherus Magna together, restoring the planet.[9] The Lord of Earth now resides on the restored planet.[10] She plans to foment distrust among the other tribes to prevent a worldwide alliance against her tribe.[11]

Abilities and Traits

The Element Lord of Earth possesses the power of Earth, and is intertwined with the element itself.[12] Like the other members of her tribe, she is extremely tied to nature.[13][14] Unlike the other Element Lords, she is not aggressive and territorial. Instead, she is subtle, arranging for her enemies to weaken one another as opposed to challenging them in battle herself.[15]

Tools

The Lord of Earth was given armor and tools that reflect her nature.[16]
