Ehlek was an ugly little hobo who lived in a garbage dump on Mahri-nui. He roamed the garbage piles in search of the Kanohi Ignika so he could create a living trash monster to give him a foot massage. However he has not found it yet. Little does he know it was recycled and is now a Coke can.
He controled an army of trash eels, three junk yard dogs and a cat who he calls 'Bob'
When Mahri-Nui broke off, Ehlek was dragged with it and 'Bob' the cat was killed. He swore revenge on the Matoran for the dead of his cat. He resists in the Pit to this day where he has not yet learnt to swim.
