Le-Metru

Le-Metru was the transport center of Metru Nui, site of the Moto-Hub and Test Track. Le-Metru was known for its feeling of barely controlled chaos as workers scrambled to and fro beneath a canopy of wires and cables. All chutes, ground, and air vehicles were manufactured here, and the entire chute system was supervised from here as well. Le-Metru was protected by Toa Matau and Vahki Vorzakh. It suffered severe damage during the Great Cataclysm and became home to many of the species of Rahi which escaped the Archives.1

Notes

Toa Matau used his aero slicers and power of air to defend Le-Metru, transportation center of Metru Nui. This was the core of the network of magnetized protodermis chutes that ran throughout the city.2

Le-Metru was the transport hub for the entire city of Metru Nui. Le-Metru contained green and brown structures. The densest concentration of chutes was in Le-Metru.3

Cables hung everywhere in Le-Metru, and one could climb them to travel above ground.3

Ussal pens could be found all over the metru. The carts they pulled transported goods too large or fragile for the chutes or carried Matoran who preferred to travel a little more slowly. The large crabs were specially trained to obey the commands of their riders, although they were known to get temperamental at times. Ussal crabs smelled somewhat unpleasant, and Ussal crab pens gave off a noticeable stench.3

In Le-Metru, the Vahki constantly needed to prevent Nui-Rama from making nests on the rooftops. Nui-Rama would be netted and shipped off to the Archives. Nui-Rama nests were a sign that Vahki had not patrolled an area recently.3

The transport cables that hung in Le-Metru helped feed energized protodermis into the chutes and chute stations. Matoran also found them fun to swing from.3

Le-Metru was the hub of all of Metru Nui's transport systems, roads, chutes, canals, and power cables. The chute system was very complicated and went every which way, almost like the branches of a jungle. The favorite pastime of the Le-Metru Matoran was racing each other in their swift-speeding vehicles.4

Unlike other items in Metru Nui, transport vehicles were manufactured in Le-Metru rather than in the Po-Metru Fields of Construction.5

Walking into Le-Metru was like walking into a dense jungle. The ground was littered with tools and wires that could snag one's feet. Covering much of the metru was a canopy of tangled cables and chutes that, in some places, almost blocked out the suns. The air was filled with the constant chatter of Le-Matoran hard at work among the chutes. The feeling was one of barely contained chaos. The Le-Matoran were allowed to have a metru that was something of a mess because their work was so vital to the city as a whole. Le-Metru was the transport center for Metru Nui; without it, Metru Nui would grind to a halt. Here chutes and vehicles were built and maintained to ensure the smooth flow of Matoran and cargo from one place to another. Without the Le-Matoran's efforts, tools forged in Ta-Metru could never get to Po-Metru for finishing, and Rahi captured in Ga-Metru would never make it to the Archives. All of this combined to make the Le-Matoran very brash and confident; they knew how important they were, and they liked to make sure everyone else knew it, too.6

The center of Le-Metru was the Moto-Hub, home to the vehicle manufacturing factories and the chute system controls. The preferred chute speeds in Le-Metru were fast, sometimes worryingly fast, compared to other metru.7

Le-Matoran grew used to seeing the unfortunate victims of Vorzakh Staffs of Erasing, called "shamblers," wandering through Le-Metru.8

The tangle of chutes, cables, and other structures that overhung Le-Metru were a popular home for Rahi of many types, including cable crawlers. Cable crawlers were a particularly bothersome pest, since they tended to cut through power cables and other important structures while looking for prey.9

Le-Metru was a busy section of the city. Gukko were a common sight in the skies over Le-Metru and favored nesting in its tangled cables.10

The skies of Le-Metru were filled with airships, and the streets with moving vehicles. Phase dragons were often seen racing through the tangled chutes and cables of Le-Metru.11

Ussal crabs were commonly seen hauling carts in the streets of Le-Metru.12

Fikou tree spiders were known for nesting in Le-Metru cables and were considered highly dangerous.13

Le-Metru was once the transport hub of Metru Nui. It was badly damaged in the earthquake during the Great Cataclysm. Upon their return, the Le-Matoran were extremely industrious and performed a good deal of rebuilding. Because of the need to get the transportation system running again, repairing Le-Metru was given priority over repairing Ko-Metru for the time being.14

Le-Metru was the transportation center of Metru Nui. It was where vehicles were made and the complex chute system used for mass transit was maintained. Tangled masses of cables were everywhere, and the Le-Matoran climbed, swung, and scrambled among them as they did their work.15
