Flaahgra

"That which fouls the waters seeks the sun."

 

"Morphology: Flaahgra

This mutant plant is the source of toxic water in the Ruins. Flaahgra's growth cycle has been radically accelerated. As a result, it requires near-constant exposure to solar energy to remain active. This exposure has made Flaahgra's outer shell thick and durable. Concentrated weapon fire can daze it for short periods, but its lower root system is unprotected and vulnerable, however. Exploit this flaw when possible."

 

"Chozo script translated.

The cries of this dying land echo in our ears as we Chozo watch the Great Poison seep ever further into the living pulse of the planet. The dark energy sinks into the trees and waters, devouring all life. Peaceful beasts die by the thousands - some creatures survive, but their forms grow as twisted and evil as the force that fell from the sky. Many of these mutated monstrosities remain small enough to do little harm, but others grow enormous and threaten our very existence. One such beast defiles our sacred fountain, disgorging poison from its foul form, replacing pure, flowing water with cascades of creeping death."

One of my favorite creatures from Metroid Prime, Flaahgra, the boss of the Chozo Ruins. As soon as I saw the Kaiju egg from Invasion from Below I knew I wanted to use it for the base of a Flaahgra MOC. So, here we are!
