Rahkshi Patrisonus . Also known as "shouters" by the matoran of Mt. Maiden. . The rahkshi pantrisonus were a form of rahkshi created by the Brotherhood of Makuta to spread the plague of their dreadful music across Aqua Magna.
Unlike the original rahkshi forms, the trisonus rahkshi are bulkier, have three heads, three legs and are fused to a large set of speakers. This in turn means that they are considerably slower, less agile and more prone to falling over. They do look a fair bit scarier though.
The speakers blast out music sent directly from Makuta Radio, a dreadful station set up by the Brotherhood of Makuta that broadcasts terrible, terrible music and boring talk shows. Seriously, all that their music is composed of is a heavy bassline and a couple of skakdi shouting swear words a lot.
The signals broadcast from Makuta Radio run down the specialised spines of the "shouter", which act as antennae. The signals are sent to the speaker and also along cables to the rahkshi's heads, so it can judge what they're forcing the public to listen to and how loud it should be. They have to have the signal sent to them via cables because the "shouter" doesn't have ears. If it did, it's heads would explode from the sheer volume of the music it's broadcasting.
The kraata is stored in the back end of the "shouter" because there really is nowhere else to put it. This is a major weakness because the rahkshi can't actually see behind itself, and the compartment where the kraata is stored is considered the weakest point. Except...
The legs. Being such a bulky machine, it has three legs to support it. It is still prone to collapsing and if struck hard enough on one leg the whole structure would collapse. Unfortunately, it would still be blasting out terrible music and corrupting matoran, so good luck with that.
So starts a whole bunch of music based MOCs I've started building to go with the Visoraxe...Next one will probably be Toa Steeliax, as I'll need to take apart the Visoraxe MKII soon. Only problem is it has a rather fat neck, and I can't seem to build anything stable enough to hold the heavy weapon. If you have any ideas or tips for building quite large titans and/or hands, they would be much appreciated. :)
