15) Bionicle Epic 2008: The Curse Of The Leviathan (Part II) . I've decided to use the new parts later in the series, so for now, here's the next installment of the Leviathan Visual Epic. .
The story begins with Shakespeare being chased to the fringe of the forest.
Shakespeare: What are those things? Their tactics are incredible... How are they...
Dragoon: Go no further!
Landing in front of Shakespeare is Dragoon, a winged Crapas Drone (See Leviathan and the Crapas Drones)
Dragoon: Light shall perish!
Shakespeare: What are you?! What have you done with feather?
Dragoon: He is one of us now.
At that moment, Dragoon attacked...
Only to have his strike caught by Shakespeare's Assault rifle.
Shakespeare: You abomination...
Shakespeare: If you won't tell me where my friend is, then you're no use to me!
Balancing himself on the tip of his gun, Shakespeare uses the kinetic force of the blast to somersault through the air.
Landing on his feet.
Shakespeare: Why won't these things die?!
Grok: Grok angry!
Grok: GROK SMASH!!
Shakespeare holds Grok at gunpoint.
Shakespeare: You wanna face-full of slugs? Try me.
1st Lt. Aviathus: Now I swoop in and gracefully end your life.
Shakespeare: You stay put! I want answers, and if I don't get them, you're all in for a world of hurt.
At this point, a warp noise is heard...
... And out of nowhere appears Stasis.
Stasis: Such loud words.
Stasis: Yet your front is undefended...
The three crapas drones move in on the now pinned Shakespeare. All hope seems lost...
Grok: Uh guys...
Shakespeare: Ungh... Rocks?
Shakespeare: Only one toa...
Komorro: Feeling a tad reckless, are we? I just asked you to do sentry duty while I investigated part of the forest.
Shakespeare: My rifles aren't damaged, thank goodness, but the barrels need cleaning...
Komorro: That's wonderful, but Feather is still missing and...
Venom: He'll stay that way!
Before Komorro could react, Venom jumps him with incredible speed, holding a blade to his throat.
Venom: Now I've come for you, Matengu (Shakespeare's formal name), join us and your master won't die.
Shakespeare: Master! You'll pay for this, Venom!
Venom: And how so? What more can they possibly do to me?
Unknown Voice: Let me show you.
Out of nowhere, Tohuka's sheild magnetically attaches to Venom, pulling him off of Komorro....
And into the air....
Before diving downward, driving the Crapas Drone headfirst into the ground.
Shakespeare: Was that Tohuka's sheild?
Komorro: I think so...
Komorro: There it goes!
Komorro: And there it stops.
Tohuka: You can thank me later.
Tohuka reveals himself.
Tohuka: Yep, it's me. I bent the light hitting me to the color of my surroundings, rendering me camoflauged right under your noses.
Tohuka: On a more serious note, I bring grim news.
Tohuka: We missed a Behemoth when we attacked the underworld as Toa Kueva. This one goes by the name "Leviathan" and is, or was, their leader.
Tohuka: He tried to attack Ni-Kueva, but Gurunu intervened at the cost of his Toa power.
Komorro: Not even Mukraatan had the ability to do that... Did he?
Shakespeare: I remember one beast did, back before I died and united with Komorro. He was the same species as Botar, but heavily corrupted by the Makuta. He could have crushed Mukraatan without much trouble. He was what killed me (see Komorro: Toa Kuelu of Light).
Komorro: Are you saying this thing is as strong as the beast you encountered?
Shakespeare: It's possible, because one needs a massive amount of power to even hope to gain the ability to steal Toa power.
Leviathan: Yea, it's true!
Leviathan: And tonight you get to see a spectacular show! Let me warn you, it is for mature audiences only because Toa will die in the act!
Leviathan: Arise.... My minions....
Komorro: That isn't good...
Tohuka: We'll have to obliterate them to keep them dead.
1st Lt Aviathus: Never... Die...
Grok: ...Grok... Kill...
Komorro: Shakespeare, run and get help. GO!
Shakespeare: I'm on it!
Tohuka: You'll need to get help faster than that.
Tohuka grappled his shield to Shakespeare's back, thrusting him forward at thrice the speed.
Tohuka: Why did you call for help?
Komorro: I'm not worried about the drones.
Komorro: It's their boss that worries me.
Tohuka: We can only hope Shakespeare can get help in time. If not, we might have to summon...
Komorro: You mean...
Tohuka: Yes, that.
