Vlakea are robots created by the Hand of Artakha to keep order in the Matoran Universe, like the Vahki. There were about one hundred prototypes created and sent to the Southern Continent. They seemed to be doing a good job until one day when they malfunctioned and started to attack villagers and rahi. A little less than half were destroyed and the rest scattered across the matoran universe. However, a few were captured and reprogrammed to act how they were intended to. Now that the Hand of Artakha has been disbanded, there have been no efforts to capture the remaining Vlakea.
