Proto Drakes are graceful, amphibious Rahi.


The Proto Drake species was created by Makuta Kojol using Viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the Rahi to inhabit the Matoran Universe.[1]

Many Proto Drakes made their home in the Silver Sea that surrounded Metru Nui. Here, they were regarded with great respect by the Ga-Matoran and were a welcomed presence in Ga-Metru, as they primarily fed on Takea Sharks.[4]

Proto Drakes were later sighted off the coast of Ta-Wahi on Mata Nui,[5] having migrated there following the Great Cataclysm. This population of the Rahi returned to the Matoran Universe after the Bohrok swarms cleansed the island.[6]

Several Proto Drakes also migrated into the waters surrounding the Pit, and adapted to the waters there. They reside primarily around the Razor Whale's Teeth, feeding on the Takea that came too close.[7]

After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, the surviving Proto Drakes within left the Matoran Universe and immigrated to Spherus Magna.[2]

Abilities and Traits

Proto Drakes are so named for their habit in bathing in Ta-Metru vats. Onu-Matoran have theorized that these Rahi do this to remove parasites that attach themselves to the Drakes' bodies.[4]

The fins of these Rahi allow them to move in water and give them the ability to fly. Proto Drakes capture prey by using the claws on their fins and tail.[4]
