Tracing her murky origins back to the dark ages of 2005, it goes without saying that Whera is a creation steeped in a rich heritage as one of the wiki’s hallmark figures.
Undoubtedly one of the oldest characters Custom BIONICLE Wiki has to offer, Whera came to fruition in an age when little to no information had been revealed about Toa of Lightning. As a result, her article has gone through numerous revisions to make her the swash-buckling, sword-swinging free spirit she is today.
Starting her life as a Vo-Matoran, Whera spent her early years on Skya Nui, reverse engineering a number of electrical systems put in place by the Great Beings. Over time she amassing considerable knowledge in the field and was at one point approached to excavate an ancient mountainside ruin, an experience that caused the Vo-Matoran to be both imbued her with Toa Power and vexed with the fusion of the Kanohi Ultima to her mask. Fortunately, since this event occurred during the Time Slip, the Order of Mata Nui was swift to cover her transformation up, spiriting her away to Tren Krom Peninsula.
With no memory of her past life, Whera was promptly approached by Toa Nidhiki, who trained her in the art of swordplay, molding her into a self-sufficient and agile warrior before leaving the island to become a Toa Mangai. For many years, Whera stayed to defend the Tren Krom Peninsula, witnessing the Great Cataclysm and aiding in the rebuilding process that followed it.
Roughly 100 years ago, Whera was contacted by a mysterious messenger, who prompted her to return to Skya Nui once more. Acting upon the summons, Whera returned to her home island and was soon introduced to five other Toa, one of whom admitted to having issued the bid for assistance in hopes of reforming the Toa Skya to defend the island.
