A bit of something new for me. I wanted to try something like this a long time back but I didn't know what to do. Given a lot of the mysteries of the Bionicle universe, especially those from the serials, I think there is something to work with now in addition to some of the already existent ones from the main storyline. Here we go... And before you ask, with this particular case the host is covering, there are going to be constant updates, so this first case isn't finished yet, before anyone asks.
Hydraxon: In the eve of one cold night, there had been reports of various deaths that all had something in common. Tonight we investigate one of those deaths, which would be the death of Karzahni, as well as review the life of the deceased. I’m your host, Hydraxon, and I like wearing this trench coat. Join me, and you might be able to help me solve a mystery.
*Insert “Bionicle: Unsolved Mysteries” title sequence.*
Hydraxon: Sometime in the waking dawn on the newly reformed planet of Spherus Magna, a somewhat dull mission turned into a frightening experience when two lone Toa discovered the deceased body of the insane ruler known only as Karzahni at the bottom of Iron Canyon. From there, his body was brought in and examined by our team of specialists.
Tahu, fire expert
Tahu: I can definitely confirm he wasn’t burned. Trust me, I know these things. I like to burn stuff.
Gali, healing expert
Gali: Karzahni had seemingly fallen to his doom based on a large part of his injuries. To fall from Iron Canyon would yield great harm to one’s self alone, but it gets worse.
Hydraxon: The two witnesses who discovered Karzahni had this to say…
Kopaka, strategic specialist and loser in love
Kopaka: Not only did Karzahni fall to his doom, but he landed on this little knife thing that was somehow waiting for him at the bottom of the cliff.
Pohatu, weapon specialist, napkin collector, local athlete
Pohatu: Actually, that’s an air sword.
Kopaka: … Who carries around this little stub and calls it a sword?
Kopaka: Oh… right. But that’s different!
Pohatu: Anyway, this is the Air Sword, usually carried by Toa Lesovikk.
Hydraxon: Toa Lesovikk, as a fallen Toa, had personal issues with the demented tyrant and sought to personally bring justice with his own hand. However, several months earlier, he was robbed of that chance when Karzahni was arrested by the Order of Mata Nui, taken in by the member known as Botar. Unfortunately, we were unable to get an interview before his untimely demise, as Botar denied privilege for any questioning.
Pohatu: Lesovikk just wanted to take matters into his own hands, for what he feels would be retribution for a lost chance being a hero.
Kopaka: Personally I think he’s just out of his mind. Even if Karzahni was the way he is, why go out and push him to his demise?
Hydraxon: While imprisoned by the Order of Mata Nui, Karzahni sought institution to help aid his shattered mind, which was made more insane by the ruthless Makuta Teridax. We have recreated the scene with these non-paid interns cosplaying as those who were involved.
Karzahni’s mind shredding re-enactment
“Karzahni”: I know about you Makuta and now I’m going to instill fear into you. *makes noises, puts hands on box head meant to represent Kanohi Olisi*
“Teridax/Maxilos”: You made a big mistake Karzahni. I don’t have nightmares. I give them instead. So take this for your trouble! *he makes noises, holds out his broom and aims it at “Karzahni,” who falls over and starts yells in pain.*
End of recreation
Hydraxon: It was from there, Lesovikk himself wanted to take matters into his own hands as the tyrant made a hasty escape and tried to show him some pretty pictures with his kanohi mask power. From there, he was taken in by Botar and put into a mental institution. We managed to get a hold of some file footage straight from the Order as documentation of Karzahni’s progress on his mental health. Sessions did not go so well. A warning to some of our more sensitive viewers.
Therapist: Why do you feel the need to run from conflict?
Karzahni: I never run away! I always stand and fight!
Therapist: And yet you quit everything else you’ve ever done. You know, you’re only a failure if you never try.
*Karzahni is wrapped in a straight jacket*
Karzahni: The wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round, round and round.
Karzahni, still wrapped up: Have the lambs started, Clarisse?
*Karzahni is locked up in a dark room*
Karzahni: Fergalicious definition make them boys go loco…
Karzahni: Where’s my rubber ducky?!
*Karzahni is standing on his head*
Karzahni: Who turned the world upside down?! I can’t take it anymore!
Karzahni: Is that you, Carly Rae Jepsen?
End of footage
Hydraxon: It was because of this lack of progress, Karzahni was deemed a lost cause and later sent to the Pit to live out the rest of his imprisonment.
Turaga Vakama, wise elderly type figure
Vakama: He wasn’t really good at rebuilding Matoran, either. The other Turaga and I had to fix the ones he had in his realm after they were relocated. One more thing. Makuta actually named a plant after him, which tried to attack me. One more thing. He was meant to be a tale everyone said just to frighten one another. I never thought he actually existed.
Tahu: His injuries are fake.
Gali: How do you explain that?
Hydraxon: Somewhere out there, the murderer is still at large and is evading capture. Some believe he has gone south, changed his name to Vesolikk, and tried to create a new life for himself. He is seven feet tall with orange eyes, and was last seen wearing a Kanohi Faxon and green armor. If you or anyone has seen him or have any information, please call us. Coming up next… a glowing red object in the sky known as the “Red Star.” What secrets are linked with it? Later on, we take a look at a closer encounter with the Zyglak kind.
