Bahrag Through Mata Nui
Haven't we dicussed that the Bahrag were actually made by the Great Beings, rather than through Mata Nui? Seeing that the GBs provided the Bahrag with the means of creation Krana later? --Surel (Talk) 09:29, 23 July 2021 (UTC)
- Under normal circumstances, I would agree that it's a blatant contradiction, and that the published source (Makuta's Guide) would obviously take priority over the Greg quote. However, it's been established a number of times (such as the sources for the "Initial Activation of Mata Nui" line) that Mata Nui only ever created things that the Great Beings programmed him to create. In a sense, then, both Mata Nui and the Great Beings can be said to have created these creatures--Great Beings conceived and Mata Nui physically manifesting
birthingthem. Furthermore, as far as I have found, there is nothing indicating the manner in which the Great Beings created the Bahrag, and therefore nothing indicating they didn't use Mata Nui as their tool for bringing them about. This would have all happened during the pre-launch timeframe, so there would have been quite a bit of overlap between the point the Bahrag were created and the Great Beings still being around--and therefore being able to give them the new abilities to make Krana.
- As far as I can tell, both sources are pretty easily reconciled, though I can always revise it if proven wrong. --Gonel (talk) 04:30, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
