About this creation
Tohuka and Zwielhander meet up with Makuta Venorax to search for a reported Teriwraith in the area. Relations with the Glatorians that Kueva-Nui now drifts over have yet to be made.
Tohuka: Good, everyone's here. And Venorax, you're sure it's this area?
Venorax: Tohuka, would I lie to you?
Tohuka: ...is that a serious question?
Venorax: Shut up! I'm being honest now so listen to me. This Teriwraith is an unusual one. While most look like the one Mukraatan showed you, this one runs around with a spiked club, maiming anyone he comes in contact with.
Venorax: Allow me to introduce my guard, Sgt. Esprito.
Sgt. Esprito: Thank you, my Lordess. For this mission, I have been equipped with a special helmet designed to track Teriwraith signatures. I will be your eyes and ears on the expedition for the time being.
Zwielhander: Can you be trusted?
Venorax: You overzealous piece of... Wait, it's here.
A scream shatters the silence.
Tohuka: Most unusual...
Zwielhander: Is that...
Venorax: There is your target.
Teriwraith: HA! I've found you and now I'm going to kill you all! The others lost their sanity, yet I still hold fast! You will die! YOU WILL ALL SUFFER AND DIE!
He continues to shout "SUFFER AND DIE!!" for the next several panels. In the meantime...
Sgt. Esprito: Orders, ma'am?
Venorax: Stay put, Sergeant, I sense reinforcements incoming.
Teriwraith: YOU HEAR ME!! TALK NOT AMONGST YOURSELVES!!! YOU WILL DIE!! I WILL BE YOUR DEMISE!!! I-
??: Will you shut up?! Pretty please? I asked nicely.
Teriwraith: WHO'S THERE?! YOU WILL DIE TOO!!!
Leviathan: A threat? Am I threatening to you? HAHAHAHA!! My, my, you seem tense, so let me ask you...
Leviathan: WHY SO SERIOUS?!
Leviathan: I think a frozen swirly is an order. Eat snow!
Leviathan: Oops... He's gone limp... And I was just starting to have fun!
Leviathan: Oh well, job's done. VENORAX!! Mukraatan sent me to check up on the cleanup operation (see the preview for the Kihoku epics for more info.). So yea, what's up?
Venorax: I will give you a full report, Leviathan, just be patient and give me a minute.
Leviathan: Oh I see, playing with your new friends! How cute!
Venorax: Shut up, you oversized fish.
As Leviathan and Venorax traded insults back and forth, a telepathic cry for help rung true to Tohuka.
Tohuka: Venorax, I must depart anyway. Zwielhander and I have some unfinished business with the Lei-Matoran. Zwielhander, with me!
Zwielhander: Of course.
Venorax: Suit yourselves, if I'd known Leviathan was going to show up and butcher our target I wouldn't have gotten this group together in the first place.
Venorax: Sergeant, let's deliver the report on our progress.
Sergeant: Right away, ma'am.
Venorax: We still tagged the Teriwraith meeting grounds in the area, so I guess that's something.
Tohuka: This way, on top of the rock!
Zwielhander: I know you lied to them, Tohuka. I sensed that distress call, too. What's gotten into you lately? The alliance with Mukraatan, now this?
Tohuka: Not now, look.
Zwielhander: ....Oh, now I see... A toa of Ice?
Zwielhander: I don't remember us having an Ice-Toa on the team.
Tohuka: We don't, and this is no ordinary Ice Toa. He is a Toa Kuelu. My brother...
Zwielhander: What's left of him... It's a miracle his corpse wasn't turned into a wraith.
Tohuka: He's not a corpse. Not yet.
Tohuka: He can be revitalized...
Leviathan: So you've marked the spots where the Teriwraith's convene to do whatever it is they do.
Venorax: At least for this area...
Venorax: Can we seriously trust these Toa, Leviathan? Zwielhander and the others follow this blind zealotry and it's really frustrating.
Leviathan: Worry not, sister, Tohuka is turning, just as planned. The zealotry of his brothers will accelerate this process, and soon he will be one of us. Maybe he will be even better than archaic old Mukraatan.
Leviathan: Just have fun with it, Venorax. For now, just have fun with it.
Quoting Gringat The Airlord
A good story here, but it's "Lady", not "Lordess" lol.
Fancy joining my storywriter's group, "The Bionicle Bard's Hall"? You're certainly talented enough =]
I know the difference lol, but "Lordess" is a term I coined for a high ranking female in the storyline. Like a Countess is to a Count, a Duchess is to a Duke, and a Lordess is to a Lord. But yes I joined and thank you for the invite :) It's good to see you and your work again!
