Gaardus is a former Matoran, mutated by a group of rogue Nynrah Ghosts.


Gaardus was once a normal Matoran within the Matoran Universe. Over 80,000 years ago, he was taken and altered by a group of exiled Nynrah Ghosts, who were attempting to make a living weapon. However, he eventually escaped their custody, and began hunting them down until he had killed them all. He remained in the village that they had kept him, even after their deaths, due to the Red Star. Gaardus made it to the Red Star, but eventually left.

After the death of Teridax, Gaardus evacuated the Matoran Universe, seeking peace away from the Matoran. He came upon Tren Krom, and was about to hunt the entity when Tren Krom sent out a telepathic scream, imparting an image of the Red Star. Tren Krom was soon murdered, though Gaardus was unable to see who the killer was. He was quickly shot out of the air by Toa Nuva Kopaka, who was investigating a murder with Pohatu. The two recognized Gaardus as an inhabitant native to the Matoran Universe, and Gaardus explained his history. After mentioning the Red Star, Kopaka became intrigued, and sought a way to travel there. Gaardus reluctantly revealed that he could get them there, and was convinced by Kopaka to teleport them into the Star. They soon encountered a group of Purple and Black Entities, one of whom recognized Gaardus, prompting them to draw their weapons.

Abilities and Traits

As a result of the rogue Nynrah Ghosts experimentations, Gaardus possesses wings which he can use to fly, as well as enhanced senses. He also has the ability to teleport to places he has been before, given to him to make him effective at hunting. He despises the Matoran due to the atrocities committed on him, and does not consider himself of the species.

Mask and Tools

Gaardus bears a Kanohi Hau, and carries a flaming sword.

Set Information

Gaardus in set form

Gaardus is a combiner of all six sets released in 2010, the BIONICLE Stars line; Rahkshi, Piraka, Gresh, Tahu, Takanuva, and Skrall. Instructions for the set were released on BIONICLE.com.


  • Gaardus was first introduced as an unnamed combiner in the final BIONICLE comic, Rebirth. A "Who Am I?" contest was held, asking participants to send in essays detailing his history and powers. The winning entry was created by Elizabeth Schroeder, and adapted into the story by Greg Farshtey.
