The Toa Cordak[2] were the very first group of Toa to band together under a single leader.[3]

History

The Toa Cordak came about around 100,000 years ago, shortly before the Toa Mata were awakened and became a team.[citation needed] Consisting of eight Toa,[DroD, Ch. 9] they made their base on an island with one of the first Turaga on it,[citation needed] and were led by Lesovikk.[OGDi: Mar 29 2008, 08.06 AM] There they protected the resident Matoran from threats such as invading Rahi.[DroD, Ch. 3] One of their number, a Toa of Lightning, Nikila, was later made the tactical commander of the team, under Lesovikk's overall command,[OGDi: Apr 1 2008, 09:21 PM] and the two grew very close.[DroD, Ch. 8] They also befriended the resident Matoran, and Lesovikk was very close to two of them, Sarda[DroD, Ch. 1] and Idris.[4]

During the course of their travels, Lesovikk spotted an oncoming Zyglak band. However, he hesitated at a crucial moment, allowing the Zyglak to overwhelm the team.[DroD, Ch. 9] The rest of the team was disintegrated by the Zyglak through their disintegration spears, preventing them from being revived on the Red Star.[1] Lesovikk managed to survive, and returned to his homeland, only to find that the Turaga had gone insane and shipped the entire Matoran population off to the realm of Karzahni.[DroD, Ch. 5]

Distraught over his failings, Lesovikk became a wanderer, traveling around the universe to find a way to atone. He made several attempts to recover the Matoran from Karzahni, but failed to get past the Manas, also unaware that the land's ruler Karzahni had since sent the Matoran away to the Southern Continent.[DroD, Ch. 3]

With rumors spread through the Matoran Universe about the decimation of the Toa Cordak, a new, pejorative use of the word "Cordak" became prevalent: "desolation".[2]

Lesovikk later received word of Karzahni's attempt to assault Mahri Nui, and entered the mutagenic water around the land in order to stop him.[DroD, Ch. 1] On his way, he reunited with his two Matoran friends.[DroD, Ch. 7] Despite Karzahni's attempt to trap him in an illusion with his old teammates, Lesovikk imprisoned the tyrant, who was taken away by Botar.[DroD, Ch. 10]

Lesovikk's Vision

Karzahni cast a vision on Lesovikk during the Toa's pursuit using his Kanohi Olisi.[DroD, Ch. 8] However, the vision replaced the Zyglak that killed Lesovikk's team with a sentient cloud of Acid because of Karzahni's insanity.[OGD: Jan 26 2008, 07:24 PM] Despite the replacement, Lesovikk readily believed in the illusion, having been given a chance to save his team.[DroD, Ch. 8] Lesovikk continued to have many more adventures with his team, influencing later events in history such as the Frostelus assault of the Makoki Stone guard team. Lesovikk was contemplating recruiting a novice Toa Lhikan when Nikila approached him, suggesting that they patrol Zyglak hunting grounds. The mention of Zyglak triggered a memory recall in Lesovikk, which dispelled the illusion.[DroD, Ch. 9]
