While most Makuta were known for the Rahi they brought into being, Crytoss was most known for being a ruthless tester of Rahi. Makuta like Chirox or Mutran would think of the deadliest Rahi possible, create it, and send it to fight Karangu. If it survived more than a minute with him, it was deemed a menace and unleashed upon the world.
Miserix saw that Karangu had a talent for intimidation and deception, so he usually sent him to hunt down the evil doers of the universe along with Teridax. During the battle that crushed the Barraki's rebellion, Karangu exterminated one of Mantax's legions and convinced another to defect. However it was also this ruthlessness that kept him from gaining a region of his own to protect. Instead, Teridax employed him to gather information about the nature of the Matoran universe. A task which usually involved intimidating old Turaga. Karangu relished every minute of it. From time to time Teridax would send him to spy upon other Makuta, disguised as a Matoran. Here his talents for deception shined.
When Teridax rebelled against Miserix, Karangu joined his master at once, not out of loyalty, but because Teridax offered him exactly what he wanted: destruction. For most of the time between this and the Great Cataclysm, Karangu developed his powers and researched the ancient artifacts of the Matoran Universe. Teridax had promised that he would lead an assault upon the Southern Islands after Mata Nui was cast into his slumber. When that time came, the brotherhood received a request for help from the shattered fragments of the Scardon Empire, the former rulers of the Southern Islands, to aid them in rebuilding their nation. With Teridax out of the picture for the time being (he was currently trapped in a Toa seal) Icarax sent Karangu to investigate the Scardon's plight and to take advantage of the situation as he saw fit. Hiring a Dark Hunter to accompany him, the Makuta set off for what he thought would be an easy task. He was never heard from again...
The MOC itself is a rather simple titan.
The wings in this position give him a devilish aesthetic, if I do say so myself.
This is my contribution to the Brotherhood of Makuta project which @Gilahu started. Please support this good work
Edit: The name has been changed so that it no longer sounds like two English words jammed together. Lehari, head of the RSG (and one of three I know capable of holding a conversation in Matoran) has given the name Karangu as it means “The Final Barrier”.
