"I wanted to get away from the rage. But it followed me even to this peaceful place."
— Gaardus, The Powers That Be

Other Being
Status {{{status}}}
Pronunciation GAR-duss

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


Gaardus was once a normal Ta-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 where he had been kept, even after their deaths, due to the Red Star. Gaardus made it to the Red Star, but eventually left.

Spherus Magna

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 Kestora, one of whom recognized Gaardus, prompting them to draw their weapons. The Kestora accused Gaardus of being the reason the Star was no longer operational, and Gaardus revealed to the two Toa that this was the reason he did not want to return. After Pohatu disarmed the Kestora, the entities began deciding whether or not to keep the group for dissection, and Gaardus disappeared.

Abilities and Traits

As a result of the rogue Nynrah Ghosts' experiments, Gaardus possesses wings which he can use to fly and has great strength 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 who mutated him, and does not consider himself of the species due to the atrocities committed to him.

Mask and Tools

Gaardus bears a Kanohi Hau, and carries a flame-shaped sword.

Set Information

  • Gaardus was first introduced as an unnamed combiner on the back of the final BIONICLE comic, Rebirth.

The winning entry was created by Elizabeth Schroeder, and adapted into the story by Greg Farshtey.
