Greg Farshtey Reveals the Existence of “Velika Informants” on Bara Magna
Greg Farshtey, the primary author for the Bionicle storyline, just revealed some interesting story details on the LEGO Messageboards that give us a new look at some of the characters we met in the last few years of the franchise.
User PointlessQuestions on the LMB had asked Greg a question about how Kabura knew about the regression of the Vorox. In reply, Greg dropped a hint that the Great Being Velika had some contacts on the remnants of Spherus Magna while he was inside the Mata Nui robot.
3. Kabrua also knew of the regression of the Bara Magna Vorox when he encountered Gelu and company, just a few days or weeks after the reformation of Spherus Magna. This surprised Gelu, because of how quickly Kabrua found out. It is possible that Velika gave them this information, but then again, Velika would not really have any reason to know about the Bara Magna Vorox. How did Kabrua find out about the treatment of the Bara Magna Vorox?
3) Ah, very good question. Here’s a hint — although the GBs had lost contact with Mata Nui, Velika never lost contact with the remnants of Spherus Magna. So he knew a great deal of what was going on through agents loyal to him that no one else in the MU would have known.
PointlessQuestions then asked some follow up questions, to which Greg clarified that he meant and gave a clue to the identity of the informant(s).
3.) Hmm. When did Velika get into contact with the people on Bara Magna? Before the Great Cataclysm or after? How often? Did he continue even after he was rebuilt?
All during Mata Nui’s journey of 100,000 years. And he was not only talking to people on Bara Magna, but Bota as well.
You’ve just given a tantalizing hint that Velika has had loyal agents/contacts stationed on Bara Magna. My question, then, is a simple one.
Were any of the Bara Magna characters we saw in 2009 acting as informants for Velika?
(Or were most of Velika’s contacts just people we didn’t meet?)
I think it would be enormously unfair of me to say that and then say that all his agents were people you didn’t meet (that seems like a cheat). So yes to your first question.
So at least one of the characters revealed in 2009 were in cahoots with Velika. Which one? Well, Greg hasn’t given a definitive answer yet, but BZPower member Yaldabaoth has created a nifty “Highly Suspect Chart" with the possible suspects.
So who do you think might be the informant(s)? Tell us who you think down below in the message boards. We’ll keep you updated with more Bionicle news as it happens.
