"I hungered. And when I hunger, I feed."
— Annona, Sahmad's Tale
|Powers||Non-Elemental Psionics powers, Teleportation, dream consumption|
Annona is an extremely old entity whose history predates the Great Beings. When the Great Beings eventually began inhabiting the planet, Annona observed them in case they posed a threat to her. At one point she tried to drive them to madness with her powers, but she found their minds too alien. The Great Beings in turn thrived on her mind, taking her dreams and using them as inspiration for their own creations. Annona was soon forced underground in order to avoid them. However, she eventually grew hungry and fed on the dreams of the Iron Tribe members.
Later, Annona granted the female Skrall psionic powers in order to see them destroy the males of their species. However, the Sisters were instead driven out of Skrall society. They were also ignorant as to the source of their power, believing it was given to them by Angonce.
When the Core War caused the Shattering, breaking Spherus Magna apart into three parts, Annona was trapped on Bara Magna, the largest of the fragments, where she remained underground for over 100,000 years. The Sisters of the Skrall went looking for Angonce, the believed source of their powers, in order to gain even more power. Annona captured all of the Sisters and stripped them of their individual wills.
Annona covertly fed on the dreams of Metus, an Agori transformed into a snake. Shortly after Mata Nui reunited the three parts of Spherus Magna, Metus returned to the place where Annona had fed on his dreams, leading surviving members of the Iron Tribe, Telluris and Sahmad, who were searching for the source of the plague that decimated their tribe. She dragged them underground using her tentacles, placing Sahmad under an illusion set 750 years in the future, disguising the Sisters as various Agori, Glatorian, Toa and Matoran. However, Sahmad saw through the illusion and broke free, escaping to the surface of Spherus Magna with Telluris and Metus, now transformed back into an Agori. However, Annona escaped herself, and teleported to the shores of Aqua Magna to find something new to feed on. Followed by Sahmad, Telluris, and Metus, she approached a newly-created fortress filled with Skakdi, whom she placed under an illusion. However, she was confronted by the Skakdi Fusion, who refused to let her eat their dreams. Annona identified the creature as a combination of different beings, and the two began to fight.
The fusion caused rock spikes to impale Annona, which damaged her. Annona began to feed on the dream energy of the Skakdi all at once, increasing her power and allowing her to break free from the spikes. As a result of the fusion's comparative ability to materialize dreams, the inner desires of the now-insane Skakdi began to manifest, wrecking the fortress. Annona killed Telluris when he tried to attack her, and continued to feast on the Skakdi's dreams to gain more power. Sahmad broke off a rock spike and rammed it into where one of Annona's tentacles attached to her body, which she was unable to remove. Sahmad and the fusion teamed up to negate the ability of Spherus Magna inhabitants to dream, cutting off Annona's power supply. Annona quickly struck a deal with the fusion, agreeing to leave them alone in exchange for an entirely new world of inhabitants to feed on. Sahmad was placed in charge of envisioning that world, which the fusion created. However, Sahmad had envisioned a world where all the inhabitants were beings like Annona, so that they would feed on each other and eventually all die out.
Abilities and Traits
