#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 2: Wind Thrall
_Concept art by @Scorpion_Strike and Kaibagal
A swarm of violent insects defend the deep jungles of Bo-Wahi. With a deadly stinger tail and wings capable of producing tree-toppling winds, they are indeed a forced to be reckoned with.
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: Tamaru
Approximate Parts Count: 135
Function: Flapping wings
Inspiration: Nui-Rama (theme), Gorast (head design), Nui-Jaga (legs)
Acknowledgements: Preliminary head design by @Gilahu
The Wind Thrall is the smallest Thrall (in size and parts count) and is built almost completely from basic Technic parts.
The Wind Thrall features a single function: rapidly flapping wings.
Check out the video below to see the function in action:
