Journey to Caelum- Chapter three- SkakdiVoima's Log-  8/14/6211 ~ 2/18/70,548 AF
It took the Manibus about five days after leaving the archipelago to reach the island where the Venators were waiting. I managed to backtrack to the archipelago in two, and spent a whole day searching for any sign of the Matoran.
I found one. Possibly. It looks like part of a tool used by Ko-Matoran, but it's too damaged to use. Perhaps the survivor came here, attempted to use it for something and broke it, or simply lost it. Then again, it may've been left here by another individual during the party's first expedition to these islands. Curiously, when I came upon the spot where Venti mentions seeing the murdered Matoran, the bodies were gone. Aside from the blood stains on the rocks, there was no sign of them. There is no mention in any of the logs I've recovered that the bodies were moved by Piras and his lot, and the Venators wouldn't have taken them. It's not their way. They would want those bodies to remain here as a rem

...wow. That is a LOT of jargin. I can kind of understand why G1 had to end, now.

Jokes aside, guess who's back! Haha! Yeah, I wasn't sure how to handle this reveal, and we're still pretty early in this particular story, but at least now we get a glimpse of what's happening on Piras' side. We get to see his face, and we get to see Vezon's face, which was reeeeally fun to draw. I wanted to give him a feel, so that's what's with the gold tooth and the weird ridges on his lips being drawn as earrings.

Also, I hereby decree that everyone reading this MUST use Mark Hamill's Joker voice in their heads for Vezon's dialog.  Like... I dunno, around the time of Return of The Joker, not quite as gravely or rough as he is lately.

Also, in case anyone's forgotten, Seers are Matoran (and animals) who are essentially walking cameras the Caelumiens use to spy on the other former M.U. residents, the Seers themselves usually being unaware.

But how the heck did Vezon get here? What's with those scars on the back of his head? And just how LONG has he been here?

Speculate in the comments below! The answers to this mystery will be revealed in time, but not for a while.

Also, what do you think of Pruinae as a name?

That's it for today.

I'm afraid I'm a  bit lost on how this journey to Caelum stuff is connected to Nova Orbis.

This is about what happened to the Toa Miro during that five year time skip early in the first story.

Can't say I ever expected this bugger to make a return. I wasn't expecting to see an old canon character at all, really, unless it was in a similar capacity to Axonn's corpse/the corpse of one of Axonn's race.

I'm intrigued to see whether he sticks around for long and what his role will be.

The gold tooth and piercings make me think he's a pirate. The scars are obviously from a mask being removed off the back of his head.
Wait wasn't he fused back into Vesok?

Vezok never got a chance reidak broke the fusion staff and vezok was later mutated

Yeah I'm pretty sure that's what happened in the comics and in bionicle legends inferno

Not in the online serials written in the four years that followed. He had tons of adventures.

The one that I recall was just after the Federation of Fear story.  Vezon tried using a Kanohi Olmak to escape a Brotherhood base, only to be smacked by a wave of Energized Protodermis.  The Olmak was fused to his face and he began travelling between dimensions until he was "rescued" by a Great Being.  Anything after that, I am unaware of.

I love the extra twist to the mystery. The possibility that Venti did it, all while making Zyvys even more of an enigma.

Voima continues to be great. I want to see how Skakdi have evolved since the days of old. Especially now that Vezon's here for comparison.

I like the fact that Piras says "Bloody" but says "Heck" instead of "Hell."

Vezon is great to have back. There's a good sense of his voice without the more annoying side that came to the fore in the post-06 serials. And Mark Hamill would be perfect to voice him.

I'm guessing the scars are where his mask used to be, perhaps?
NickOnPlanetRipple's avatar
Yep. That whole scene was fun to write.
toalorikan626's avatar
Wait...scars on the back of head?...Ahhh Karzahni...i think i know what the Caleam have...
NickOnPlanetRipple's avatar
Yeah... I hate to spoil this, but you've kind of already figured it out.

EVERYONE ELSE- SPOILERS AHEAD

They surgically removed the Olhmak he'd been fused to from his head. He's just a normal Skakdi now, with no otherwordly power whatsoever.

Ahhh, didn't mean to take a surprise, even tried to keep the mental reveal to a minimum, but even without powers Vezons always found ways to survive and who knows?...they may have taken more than just a mask

Also, dunno if the link to the text was invisible to you or not. Some people were complaining about that. The link should be there, now.

Didn't happen to me but thanks.
