The portal opened up and the six Bohrok-Kal and their new Threavok friend disappeared back into the world of zombie Bionicle, only to be greeted with an angry look.
"I thought you were going to bring back more people?" Brutaka tutted. "One humanoid Bohrok is not going to do it."
Kohrak stuttered as he tried to explain. "He's here to help out. We've got a week before we can get the whole unit, right, Veekay?"
"Ayep. Why is it so dark here?"
"The power went out and we couldn't get a Rahkshi into the treadmill. We need more lightning beings here..." Brutaka sighed.
Veekay scratched his chin. "I suppose I can help with that. What with my element being plasma, I've got small amounts of control over fire and electricity too..."
"What?" Pahrak exclaimed. "How comes I don't have that?"
"I use the real-world definition of plasma, rather than "very very hot stuff" like you."
"You should learn that, Pahrak! Now why don't you and that random Matoran there show Veekay around? I'll go and generate some power..."
Veekay picked Tahnok up by the head. "Oh don't be silly. I'm quite happy to generate some electricity for you lot. I need to fine-tune my electric side anyway!" With that, he dropped Tahnok and followed Pahrak and the random Matoran. As they left, Brutaka glanced at the remaining Bohrok, tutting and sighing. Kohrak and Nuhvok were discussing where to go next. Gahlok prodded Tahnok.
"Hey, while we're trying to work out where to go next, why don't you ask the narrator to explain how we ended up in this mess?"
"Um, why don't you ask him?"
"Sure!" Gahlok turned around, as if he was expecting to face a narrator or a camera or something, then turned back to Tahnok. "How?"
"Just say it. He's omnipotent."
"Oh. Mister narrator, how did all this happen?"
Suddenly, everything went white and fuzzy, a bit like a memory. Axonn started explaining everything, as the Narrator was currently possessing him.
"It all started about six months ago, a good few years after everything became happy after Makuta Teridax kicked the bucket. The Red Star came crashing down and with it returned hundreds of Toa and Matoran and other beings. Everyone was happy, except for Velika, who accidentally blew himself up while trying to kill a bunch of us.
"Then one day, a team of Toa and Glatorian stumbled across Lesovik. He was lying in the grass with a large needle sticking out of his fleshy parts. One of the Glatorian tried to remove the needle but Lesovik leaped up and bit him. Suddenly we had a team of zombie Toa and Glatorian and they headed off to New Atero to cause havok.
"Many of the Matoran and Agori were eaten very quickly, but some Toa refused to join the zombie forces and helped protect them. Larger beings like me and Brutaka were also affected. I personally chopped off Roodaka's head. That was fun, actually."
Behind him, Brutaka nodded, rubbing his hands together.
"Anyway, the few remaining Agori and Matoran started joining up in large groups, creating an organization called the Matoran/Agori Anti-Zombie Alliance, or MAAZA for short. They spent a lot of time setting up traps to kill their former defenders, or moving from place to place looking for shelter. Around about this time, me and Brutaka began our trip to find more allies to help them, using Vahki and Kraata-less Rahkshi as guards. We attempted to awaken the Bahrag, hoping we could use the Bohrok swarms, but we could not find them. That's when Brutaka found Tahnok-Kal, who was desperate for something to do.
"After some time, we managed to build a series of underground fortresses, the largest of which we called New Ta-Koro, as it was built inside a giant volcano. Unfortunately, during this time, the Glatorian and the Toa worked together to reproduce and create more of themselves. They also decided to lay siege to New Ta-Koro, but since the city is self-sufficient, they have been unsuccessful. That leads us to now, where the small communities outside New Ta-Koro are building an army to take on the monsters. Is that everything, Brutaka?"
"Should I mention how Tahnok-Kal nearly got himself killed?"
Tahnok butted in. "We've already covered that, thank you. Don't fancy going over it again."
"Hey!" Nuhvok suddenly exclaimed.
"We know where we're going next..." Kohrak smiled, creating a new portal.
