Gorast is the major antagonist that appeared in the BIONICLE series and also serves as one of the secondary antagonists in the Karda Nui arc. She was a Makuta of the Tren Krom Penisula and a member of the Brotherhood of Makuta as well as the Makuta Strike Force.
Gorast was the only member of the Brotherhood who was completely loyal to her leader, Makuta Teridax as she went along with all his plans since she was the first to side with him during his first step of overthrowing the Great Spirit.
She was voiced by Jean Louisa Kelly, who also played as Waspix in Hero Factory.
Gorast and the other Makuta were created by the Great Beings, using the substance known as the Antidermis and came into being. Later, she became a member of the Brotherhood of Makuta, whose task was to manage the Matoran universe population by creating various Rahi.
80,000 years later; when the Brotherhood of Makuta learned that the Barraki and the League of Six Kingdoms were attempting to overthrow the Great Spirit Mata Nui, they immediately rallied their army as Gorast, Antroz, Vamprah and Bitil led their army to attack the Barraki fortress. During the attack, Gorast fought with Carapar and Mantax and easilt defeated them.
Following the League's defeat, Gorast and Mutran were assigned by Miserix to journey to the Barraki fortress again to clear out the mess. When they got there and although they found nothing left there, Gorast immediately spotted a few stragglers and hunted them down before eliminating them.
Following the end of the Matoran Civil War, Gorast was assigned to supervise the Tren Krom Penisula as she was eventually feared by the denizens there as ahe was shown torturing and killing her captured enemies.
The Brotherhood Corruption
When Makuta Teridax demanded a Convocation to reveal the plan and claim leadership, Gorast was one of the first to side with him. After Teridax took over the Brotherhood as its new leader of overthrowing Miserix, she and Icarax were ordered to eliminate all of the Makuta who opposed the Plan and sided with Miserix, as she fulfilled her duty of executing them without hesistation.
Later, Gorast and the other Makuta evolved beyond the need of physical body as their Antidermis became gaseous within their armors.
Gorast was present during the moment that Mata Nui was awakening. When Krika appeared to warn the other makutas that Teridax would soon dispose of them, Gorast raged and fiercely clashed against Krika, finally killing him by inverting his mask power of repelation onto his own body.
During the energy storm, Gorast stayed freezed as she understood why Teridax send her and the other Makuta precisely to Karda Nui in that moment, and shocked, she didn't even noticed nor cared about the increasing magnitude of the storm, which erased her completely alongside Antroz, Mutran, Vamprah, Chirox and Bitil. As she was dying, she cried out why Teridax send her and the other Makuta precisely to Karda Nui in that moments and before her Antidermis began to vanish into a thin air, leaving her Felnas behind.
|“||My life doesn't matter. Your life doesn't matter. Only the great Plan matters, and it will-- It must!-- succeed!||„|
|~ Gorast to Gali Nuva.|
Gorast is a fearsome, psychotic, hot-blooded, aggressive, and brutal Makuta. She was also fanatically loyal to her master, Makuta Teridax since she was the first to sided with him during his takeover and when Teridax ushered the Plan, she was very confident that his plan will succeed.
She went so far as to idolize Teridax for his cunning and ruthless role and was in love with him as she was willing to eliminate anyone who questioned the Plan or opposing her master's plan, making her Teridax's most brutal enforcer. Eventually, her blind loyalty became her downfall as Teridax eventually betrayed her, which shocked her; revealing that he does not care about her and viewed her as an pawn for his own ends.
Powers and Abilities
Gorast, as the other makuta, had mastery over the element of shadow and 42 kraata powers, aside from the power of her mask: the kanohi Felnas, which inverted the power of whoever it's owner wanted temporaly. When she modified her own body into a completely mechanic one, she didn't need to sleep, eat nor rest, but at her stay in the Swamp of Secrets, her body was locked in an insectoid form and needed to feed and rest again due to the mutagen, as a side effect, his kanohi Felnas mutated too with a sting in the mouth that could absorb the inner light of other beings.
In this short story that takes place in the alternate Matoran Universe where Matoro failed to save Mata Nui and as the result the Great Spirit died, causing all the denizens to migrate to the island of Mata Nui. However, Gorast and the other Makuta were killed by Makuta Teridax who absorbed their antidermis, transforming himself into a colossal monster.
Gorast was one of the bosses that the player need to face throughout the game. Although her role was similar in the series, she serves as the final boss as she quickly found out that Teridax had set up her demise as she was defeated by the Toa Nuva and her body was destroyed as her antidermis merged with several properties of the environment similar to Toa Ignika's transformation and transformed into a horrifying monster with her Felnas attached on the top of the stone. She was eventually killed by the Toa Nuva who destroyed her body and scattered her Antidermis, leaving her Felnas behind.
