still, we don't know, when they were employed. And what was the reason to employ them, if not the evolution?

Hey Greg! The boards are about to close down so I want to ask you a few questions about Brutaka:
1) How did he get his Olmak?
2) When (relative to all the other events) did he leave the Brotherhood of Makuta? Before Teridax took over, before the Matoran Civil War, etc?
3) Did he work under any specific Makuta when working for the Brotherhood of Makuta?
4) Is his ability to absorb Antidermis related at all to him working for the Brotherhood?
5) Is he one of a kind or part of a species?

Since the Message Boards will be closing soon, here's one last important question I have for you.
You've stated before that, in cases where you contradict yourself, the earlier facts take precedence. When you were asked once if Brutaka's mutations by the Pit Mutagen had been undone by Mata Nui, you said no, because the walls of the Great Being's Fortress were shielded to prevent this. However, since then, you have said many, many times that Brutaka was in fact cured. So, once and for all, and knowing what you have said in the past--- was he cured? Or not?
Thank you so much for everything you've done over the years.

Another thing that I'm desperate to get answered before the boards close.
Two years ago, when you confirmed that Atakus was a spy for Velika, you were asked if Vastus was as well, and your response was "As far as Vastus goes, I would like to hear the arguments for why people think he would have been before making a call on that."
No one ever followed through on this, but I remember what the community's ideas were back then. The theory was that since Vastus fought in the Core War and it is known that he feels bad about what he did during that war, that he might support Velika because Velika's new order would prevent another terrible war. So, knowing this, is Vastus a spy for Velika?

Dear Greg, I have a proposition for you that I've been thinking about for a while and have decided to tell with the LMBs closing down. Your writing is amazing and has inspired me to write some of my own stuff.
Wouldn't it make sense for the Great Beings to have one of their number in the Matoran Universe to report back to them and tell them what's going on?
To me, it would. If Great Beings can pose as matoran(as shown with Velika) it would make sense that they would have one posing as a matoran. Now, you might ask, why didn't this spy tell the Great Beings about the Great Cataclysm?
What I'm getting to is, what if Kapura was actually a Great Being assigned by them to report back on the matoran universe. This would explain his strange ability of teleportation(maybe he made a special matoran body so that he could view the entire matoran universe via teleportation). It would also answer my question of why the spy wouldn't tell the Great Beings about the Cataclysm as his mind was wiped when he was put in a matoran sphere.
What do you think? Thank you for your time and for writing all those amazing stories.

It's a nice idea, but I don't think the GBs would have seen that as necessary. Remember, when the robot left, the Matoran were not sapient -- they were just drones, basically. So there was no real reason the GBs needed to know what was going on, plus they couldn't have fixed anything that went wrong from where they were anyway.

I don't think so, but I do think that you give good reasons for why he would be very quick to ally with him.
2017-02-27 10:47 UTC–5Permalink
Yes, he was
2017-02-27 10:52 UTC–5Permalink
1) Probably from the OOMN
2) He left before the Makuta actively began to rebel. I don't have a better timeline than that
3) Probably, but don't know who
5) Part of a species
2017-02-27 10:54 UTC–5Permalink
1) Yes, I can confirm that
2) The society is still being built, and it's going to be a long rocky process. So I am not sure exactly what role they will play has been determined yet
3) Not offhand
6) Not really, no.

No, I don't look at the galleries. Using someone else's model to do something in a story without their permission would be wrong.

1) Because sapient Matoran would be more likely to follow him.
2) As we have already established, Mata Nui was paying very little attention to what was going on inside of him. Until you get sick, how much attention do you pay to what is going on inside your body?
