Jarrokh
Created for murder, Jarrokh's animal strength, poisonous tentacles and layers of deception make him a formidable foe.
About this creation
Name: Jarrokh
Gender: Unknown
Species/Race: Rahi
Occupation: Predator, Hired Killer
Title(s): "Assassin"
Prevailing Element: Stone
Alignment: Chaotic Evil
Affiliation: Dark Hunters, Odina
Tool(s): none
Status: Unknown
MOC Status: Disassembled






Jarrokh's species was created on the island of Destral by Mutran. They acted as powerful pets for the makuta and many other larger sentient species. On Xia they became popular pets and guard rahi for various Vortixx nobles and Makuta Antroz, the island's Makuta guardian himself. They strongly resembled muaka and shallows cats, but were more docile and receptive to command.


This appearance of animal servitude was a lie, however. Jarrokh's kind were loyal only to Mutran, and were far more intelligent than they let on. They drained energy from their owners, and slowly poisoned them in their sleep. When Mutran gave the command, they would kill their owners before returning to him and receiving a new owner.


Jarrokh stayed by Antroz's side most of the time. Sent on trickier assassination missions, sometimes off the island, his increased strength, stamina and ability to sense other living beings through walls gave a supreme advantage. Every kill Jarrokh made drained the victim's elemental energy. This was on top of the outright fighting that would occur when someone Antroz didn't like needed disposing of.


When word finally got out that Jarrokh's species were more than simple house pets, most of them were destroyed by their owners, or their bodyguards. Jarrokh fled to join the Dark Hunters before it could be caught.


The newly named "Assassin" was a favourite of the Hunters, often sent out on solo missions. Missions requiring Jarrokh to work with others proved fruitless, however. Due to the fact Jarrokh drained power from its kills, it attempted to kill every target in the mission, even if it was more appropriate for the other Hunters to do so. Jarrokh's favourite targets were toa.


Jarrokh could switch between a tank-tracked rahi form and a humanoid form. In the first form it was incredibly fast and could easily pretend to be a dumb rahi. In the second, it was much more agile. The elemental energy absorbed would dissipate slowly, but while energised Jarrokh was faster, stronger, tougher and able to sense beings from further away. It rarely used weapons, instead fighting with claws, tailblade and tentacles. Since Jarrokh gained energy via his tentactles, it had no mouth and no teeth.


When Spherus Magna reformed, Jarrokh left the Matoran Universe with the rest of the Dark Hunters and continued to work for them. Shortly after The Shadowed One died and "Baron" took over, however, Jarrokh abandoned the group for an unknown reason and disappeared into the deep forests of Bota Magna.


--The Fourth Whorl--

Jarrokh was originally intended to be my entry to round two of the Elemental Bionicles Contest 2013. The objective was to create a rahi of arsenic. Jarrokh's colour scheme still reflects this, and the build and backstory revolves around it, but it was simply too large, complicated and ambitious to be finished before Phos' deadline. Metallic arsenic is gunmetal grey, its ore is a dirty orange colour, and it burns pink, hence the eyes.

Jarrokh is highly inspired by the Coeurl, an intelligent, feline alien from the 1950s Sci-Fi novel Voyage of the Space Beagle, and by a creature from the Forgotten Realms setting inspired by it: The Displacer Beast. It also takes cues from Pokemon's Mewtwo and the caterpillar-tracked rahi sets from 2001. A lot of design elements are derived from machines and petrol motors, as well, to fit with its semi-vehicular side.


Jarrokh is my second-tallest MOC now. Tallest if you count the full length of the tentacles. Unfortunately, MATRIARCH won't fit in the picture area. Jarrokh and Varrix are my only two villains currently built.

I hope you like this MOC as much as I enjoyed making it! ^^
Good luck to the final contestants in the EBC and BIO-Cup :)

Nice! When he's folded up, he greatly reminds me of the old 2001 rahi with the treads and such. One tiny nitpick that I have is the yellow on his arms. It doesn't really fit in with the color scheme.

hey gringat i'd like to ask you if i could use verix in my storyline as toa of iodine (his personallity fit with the role and it will save me form buying another Razar set) If you agree i'll give you full reconition for the Moc. Also keep the great Mocs coming!

I absolutely love the inclusion of the old tread design from back in the day, and the fact that he can TRANSFORM is amazing! There's also a lot of cool/unique designs in this one. Probably one of favorites from you :D

Those tracks... First rahi made like this I've seen! It made me squeal! :P Really love the transformation too. Very nice piece usage on the tentacles!

Quoting [ Chro ] Great build, Nat. (Also, storyline nitpick- doesn't sound like Antroz's style, to be honest.)
You're right. I rewrote it a bit. I think it fits better now.

I was slightly confused at first but the idea of using tank treads as an option is wonderful

Love the Muaka vibe Jarrokh gives, but I'm specially fond of the head design. Great job, dear, as for sure you already know ;3

Awesome job dude, this MOC screams 2001 at me, not just the tank treads at the back but the yellow pieces on his shoulders remind me strongly of the Muaka build. Awesome job dude, great backstory too :D

You amaze me every time you build a new creation. This is simply genius.

Quoting NWMRYA . Fantastic as always. I really like the foot design. It's unlike anything I've ever seen, but most of what you build is like that. Though I think you should add more keetorange on it. the two pieces stand out too much. Also, some places look too thin and have some big gaps. 4/5
The addition of the keetorange shoulder parts was actually a later choice. They were originally black. I tried adding more elsewhere, but for me just having those two patches seemed right. I can see where you're coming from though. I've gotten used to it so it's harder to see those sort of things before it's posted. As for the gaps, you'll have to point them out to me because I don't see any. Apart from in the legs, which transform, so there's kinda an excuse for them.

I can totally see the Displacer Beast etymology. Sweet, sweet work, G; also compliments on the transforming gimmick for the rear legs - read the story, liked the justification there. Nice! =D

Those tread legs are excellent! Brilliant throwback to the Rahi of yesteryear. The way the old-school design elements mesh with the sleek build and new HF pieces is very satisfying.

Seeing it in full resolution it looks great! Fantastic job here. As I said earlier really like the concept.

REALLY like this one! Very thoughtful details on the tentacles (especially those suction cups). I hope you're not offended if I say the whole build reminds me of Mewtwo, though much darker :)
