The Infernavika were a breed of small, bird-like Rahi incapable of flight.
The Infernavika species were originally created by Makuta Icarax using viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the species to inhabit the Matoran Universe. Genetically engineered to secrete a powerful enzyme found originally in Skakdi, the Infernavika were intended to chemically reconstitute withered vegetation, along with many other Rahi.
Distributed across the Matoran Universe, the Infernavika revealed themselves to be a docile and well-natured breed of Rahi, successfully adapting to the desert ecosystem and integrating themselves into Matoran life with relative ease, providing eggs and rejuvenating arid regions. Across the Matoran Universe, Infernavika were often cultivated to rapidly regrow vegetation with their enzymes, with Matoran communities finding the species easier to care for than many larger Rahi species.
In Metru Nui, a significant Infernavika population was known to reside in the sparser habitats of the Ta-Metru coastline. In an effort to preserve the species, a number of specimens were relocated to the Onu-Metru Archives.
Following the Great Cataclysm, the Infernavika population continued to reconstitute the Ta-Metru coastline in the absence of Ta-Matoran. With the arrival of the Visorak Horde upon the island, however, the overwhelming majority of Infernavika specimens migrated to the island of Mata Nui, pursuing a less hostile habitat in the region of Ta-Wahi and sheltering in the heat of active lava channels.
Following the Battle of Bara Magna and subsequent Reformation of Spherus Magna, the majority of the Matoran Universe's Infernavika population was evacuated onto the surface of a new world, though several colonies remained trapped. Seeking to rescue Rahi, the Toa Hagah were known to have been instrumental in transporting many different species from the decaying Matoran Universe, allowing the Infernavika to flourish in the warmer biomes of Spherus Magna.
Abilities and Traits
Generally, the Infernavika species was known to have lived in harmony with the Matoran population, with many communities choosing to tend to small clusters of Infernavika. Despite this, however, the species remains does not lend itself to widespread domestication. Abundant in the volcanic southern regions of the Matoran Universe, the Infernavika characteristically thrive in close proximity to active volcanoes, attracted to warmer temperatures that ward off larger predators.
Wild Infernavika conventionally roam volcanic regions of the Matoran Universe, migrating in search of magma in small flocks, typically containing less than a dozen members. Generally, members of the species will eat small fish, mollusks, crustaceans, grass, weeds, algae, aquatic plants, Protodites, Niazesk, and seeds
- The Infernavika were originally spawned when Makuta Icarax first attempted to create a flying predatory Rahi, anticipating that it would be his crowning achievement but instead producing a timid and flightless bird species.
- The Infernavika could be constructed by combining the Pahrak Va and Tahnok Va sets.
