A colossus is the final fate of any Tarrakan who loses their stability and sanity. They are extremely powerful, and extremely large. They are the fully realized embodiment of the elemental chaos that inhabits Tarrakan. It is rare for any Arakata to reach this state, as the only way it is possible, is to absorb others of its kind and use the energy their body contained. When a Collosus dies, as with all Arakata that die naturally, it releases the de-energized elements that made up its body back into nature. This plocess plays havoc with the environment, as new mountains or lakes simply appear overnight, or massive firestorms and hurricanes are started without warning.
