Speaking of vague.. I would like to know a bit more of the Barraki's past. Are they all the same species, even though some origionally had abilities others didn't? Is their any more of their species, if they are a species? Are they at all assosiated with the element of their color? Is there anything else about their past that we can know? I just find the Barraki very interesting characters...
Ehlek is from his own species, that much we know, since the Order of Mata Nui gathered them and prepared them for fighting Makuta forces. They are aquatic, but they do not have electric spines like Ehlek's mutated form. This much info can be found via the serials and possibly earlier Greg answers (I got it via BS01), but we don't know anything in detail about the other Barraki. We know that Kalmah used to only have two eyes, and that Takadox had a hypnotic stare even before his mutation increased its power. Their pre-Pit shapes can only be guessed at. It would be nice to know a bit more about them, but their exact shapes might be speculation questions. Greg can't really answer that.
After a quick look at BS01, I did see that some of the Barraki are confirmed to be diffrent species. However, it also says that Mata Nui created the Barraki to bring peace, not to fight the Brotherhood, that was later. Nowhere does it say that they were "picked out", but that they were created for that one and only purpose. Mata Nui probably chose to make them different species with unique abilities for different millitary tactics.
Ok, here are the questions: Were the Barraki origionally created to be warlords, or just picked out from their species? Also, what was Mata Nui's reasoning behind making them the six warlords?
