About this creation
In his past, Shinorax was a Matoran named Sharaz. He was adopted by Toa Seihu when he washed up on the Ga-Metru shores after an accident on his homeland of Xia. He was taught the style of fighting known as Mata-Taekworu Zhex, translated as “The Honorable Mata Way” in a small school near Ga-Metru, with Master Toa Seihu on the island of Metru Nui. He used to be Toa Seihu’s star pupil along with his friend Yahru, a fellow Matoran who he had a small rivalry with. But, Sharaz didn’t fight clean. Sharaz was also scheming behind Toa Seihu’s back to steal a powerful artifact from the Great Temple in order to surpass his everyone he knew. Then the Toa, Seihu & Yahru caught him. This action got him expelled from the school of Mata-Taekworu Zhex.
Not so long later, he was left wandering the jungles of the transformed Le-Metru after the Visorak attack, and then the Visorak-Te (miniature Visorak) ambushed him. Through that ambush, they bonded with Sharaz. Sharaz then got each of the 6 Visorak‘s powers & skills, with new body parts such as the Rhotuka spinner on his right shoulder, detachable Visorak claws and Visorak pinchers on his back. He also had new weapons such as a shield on his left hand and twin sabers with the front edge for slicing and the back edge for crushing. The Visorak-Te on his arms enable him to perform powerful punches. With the Visorak-Te on his legs, they can power up his legs, so he can also perform a powerful kick or a series of kicks.
His power and skills impressed Draku (rival of Seihu and Combat Consultant of the Brotherhood) so much that Shraraz got accepted into Draku’s school of Makuta-Karakhi Zhex, “The Venomous Makuta Way”, a style of fighting similar to, but more ferocious than Mata-Taekworu Zhex. Drakuan then renamed him Shinorax and gave him a membership for the Brotherhood of Makuta. As a member of the Brotherhood, he plays an important role as a fierce fighter & covert specialist.
