The Biowave Project: The Elemental Thralls
Hostile forces begin to stir on Valda Nui as powerful elemental creatures rise from the dark corners of the island, relentlessly and aggressively defending mysterious crystal obelisks.
Part 1: Storm Thrall
Concept art by @Ragdoll and Atlasavion
Prowling on the open oceans west of Valda Nui, the serpentine Storm Thrall preys on boats intruding on its territory, drawing power from the waters to generate devastating storms.
Story details will be highlighted in bold.
The Elemental Thralls take inspiration from the most iconic design features of both generations of Bionicle, especially from those of the 2001 Rahi, using unique aesthetics and functions while also providing a more clean and cohesive aesthetic.

Main Adversary: Vhisola
Approximate Parts Count: 285 (not including stands)
