So I reread Voyage of Fear not too long ago, and I came across a line of dialogue that made me stop and think. It was a line that Nuju said when he was taunting one of the Kralhi:
"We needed law inforcers," Nuju continued, ducking and dodging. "Instead, we got dusty, clanking energy vampires."
The word 'vampire' here made me pause for a moment. What was Nuju talking about? I know just about everyone in the real world is familiar with what a vampire is, but this is the only time I've seen this word used in the Bionicle storyline. As far as I'm aware, we don't have any lore from the official storyline that says that vampires existed in the MU. So how would he know what a vampire is?
I do have a few explanations for this quote. One, the word 'vampire' could be a word to describe something that drains the energy from another living being. (I know actual vampires drink blood, but since none of the MU residents have blood as far as I know, I'd assume energy would be the next best thing to be taken out of being in the MU.) Two, Greg somply included the word here to give Nuju a clever taunt for the Kralhi. Or lastly, and this one is one I think is the least likely, is that either some MU residents actually were vampires and we never saw them in story, or there is stories of them in the MU that we never heard of the official storyline.
But I want to hear what you guys think of this. Were there vampires in the MU? Or am I overthinking this a bit?
