"A friendly place we have here. Heavily defended, home to several hundred killers, and unfailingly lethal to trespassers, but friendly."
— Toa Mangai Nidhiki, Birth of a Dark Hunter
|Inhabitants||Dark Hunters (formerly)|
|Population||Several hundred (formerly)|
|Assigned Makuta||Makuta Vamprah|
|Position||East-northeast of the Southern Continent|
During the early stages of the Dark Hunters, the Shadowed One and Ancient sought to find a location from which they could plant the seed of their organization. They chose Odina, as it was heavily barricaded by mountains and was very hard to breach. It was also far away from any trade routes.[BEU, p. 104] In the process of claiming the island, they drove off or killed most of the original inhabitants, including most of the Rahi.[BW, p. 66] the Cliff Screecher was one of the only original species that remained.[BW, p. 69]
Besides its mountains, Odina's only major feature is the fortress that covers much of the island's southern half. The fortress was equipped with weapons and traps of many kinds, along with many training facilities where Dark Hunters were tested or trained.[BW, p. 64-65] After its establishment as the headquarters of the Dark Hunters, the island became the focal point of a number of legends, one of which stated that the fortress was haunted by the ghosts of executed Dark Hunters.
Odina acted as the command point for the Dark Hunters during their war against the Brotherhood of Makuta.
The Toa Nuva traveled to Odina to retrieve the Staff of Artakha, which had been stolen from the Onu-Metru Archives by the Dark Hunters.[TNB, Ch. 4] They were told by the Shadowed One that it had been sold to Xia as payment for a supply of weapons. He offered to exchange the Toa's freedom for them killing the treacherous Roodaka.[TNB, Ch. 5]
In this alternate universe, Odina was attacked by the Toa Empire and many Dark Hunters were killed. However, the Shadowed One (with the help of Toa Naho), Darkness, Guardian, Primal, and some others escaped Odina.[DM] The Toa Empire then occupied the island, taking control of its base.
Odina was surrounded by huge cliffs. A single pathway led down to Nidhiki Beach. Most of the island's southern region was covered by the Odina Fortress and training ground. The northern section was barren and undeveloped.[BEU, p. 104]
The fortress in which the Dark Hunters resided when they were not on missions, and from which the Shadowed One planned assignments for the Dark Hunters. The fortress contained the organizations' treasury.
Nidhiki Beach was the beach on Odina where Nidhiki was transformed from Toa into an insect-like monster by Roodaka. A path that led from the beach was the only way through the jagged peaks aside from climbing or flying.[BW, p. 64]
Prior to the Dark Hunter's takeover of the island, another society of beings resided on Odina, but they were displaced by the Dark Hunters.[BW, p. 66]
Dark Hunters were the primary residents of Odina. Old or new recruits were brought to Odina to be trained, punished or given assignments. When a potential recruit was invited to Odina, the recruit was blindfolded, or, in some cases, knocked unconscious, so that they did not know the way to the island if they failed to be recruited.[BL4] The Dark Hunters later relocated to Xia.[DID]
There were few Rahi species native to Odina. One such species was the bat-like Cliff Screecher.[BW, p. 69]
Odina was known to hold at least two beings captive: Toa Varian trapped in suspended animation in the Odina Fortress,[BA10][NOGLB] and Mimic's companion in a dungeon.[DH, p. 43] In the wake of the Battle of Bara Magna, both of these captives moved to Spherus Magna. However, their current status is known.
