|“||May the light of Aether shine upon our enemies forever!||”|
—Returning the Sky Temple Key
In Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, A-Kul is one of the 10 Luminoth Keybearers. Both of her cadres were attacked, and she tried to send S-Jrs back for reinforcements, though he did not survive the trip. She was the only one to successfully complete the Keybearer mission, inserting her key into the base of the Sky Temple, the Sky Temple Gateway. Before her death, she stored clues on her nine fallen compatriots within the keyholes they failed to fill in an effort to aid future warriors, in case they should attempt to complete the mission.
Most lore names her as the "Champion of Aether", likely a title given to the mightiest of the Luminoth warriors. Certain Luminoth artifacts, such as the Dark Visor, Dark Suit and Annihilator Beam, are stated by the Temple sentinels to have belonged to the Luminoth's champion, implying that these items once belonged to A-Kul, before Samus Aran recovered them and used them against the Ing.
Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
Soon I shall pass to final rest. My key is in place. Through my spiritual link to the others, I know where their bodies lie. I shall leave this knowledge, that their last location in the dark world can be known. May this knowledge lead our warriors to the Sky Temple Keys.
The time draws near. Hear the words of A-Kul, she they call Champion of Aether. Know that my warriors fought and died with uncommon valor. Do not look unkindly upon their failure, for they died to save us all.
