For our first spotlight this month, we have Karhi, a very important piece of legend in BIONICLEToa’s BIONICLE: Insurgence storyline.
The Karhi is no stranger to the Custom BIONICLE Wiki. A version of the Karhi character has been present in BIONICLEToa’s storyline since 2013, when it was part of the now-defunct Splinters Universe. During that time, the Karhi was represented the character of Karhi, who coincidentally bore the Kanohi Karhi. That’s how he got his name, actually. Anyway, Karhi was a legendary creature of Karhi Nui (also named after the Kanohi), and was one of the central character of the Splinters storyline.
Now, the Karhi is a title passed on from host to host, the power being bestowed in the form of the Kanohi Karhi, the Mask of Destiny. The only known possessor of this power is Aranu, who, like the Karhi themselves, is merely a legend on the island of Karhi Nui.
Being a Karhi is also not an honor, as the power is said to be a curse. If you become a Karhi, your connection to the Matoran Universe – including your destiny and to Mata Nui himself – is severed. This will cause the host to spiral into depression, seeing their life as meaningless and chaotic.
If you want to get the full scope of being a Karhi, I highly recommend giving this article a read. It’s insightful and very interesting, and worthy of being this month’s Featured Article.
