"Walking into Po-Metru is like entering another world. Instead of the tall buildings that mark Ko-Metru and Ta-Metru, you see a ridge of mountains. Roads are replaced by well-worn pathways of dirt and stone."

Po-Metru was the district of Metru Nui representing Stone. It is near the northern tip of Metru Nui and is where the island's Carvers and builders resided.

A trade and border conflict between the Po-Matoran and Ta-Matoran led to the Matoran Civil War. The Matoran of Po-Metru sank some transport barges from Ta-Metru, and in return got one of their warehouses melted by Protodermis. The Le- and Ko-Matoran allied with Po-Metru. The war ended when large armies were trapped in the Archives by Teridax and the exhibits were freed on them, in what later would be called the Archives Massacre and got the war leaders sent to The Pit.

During the Toa-Dark Hunter War, Nidhiki led the Toa army to Po-Metru, telling them it was the Dark Hunters' base, as per his plan to betray the city. However, Lhikan had previously gathered Toa reinforcements Nidhiki did not know about, and the betrayal failed, also ending the war.

Around a month before the Great Cataclysm occurred, Toa Lhikan went to Po-Metru where Onewa was carving and gave him a Toa Stone in order for him to become one of the Toa Metru. However, Toa Lhikan was captured by Krekka and Nidhiki when delivering the final Toa Stone to Vakama and was taken to the Prison of the Dark Hunters in the Canyon of Unending Whispers. Onewa traveled to Po-Metru in search of Ahkmou and, with Ahkmou, Vakama and Nuhrii, to find the Great Disk of the Metru. When the false Turaga Dume branded the Toa Metru imposters, the captured Onewa, Whenua and Nuju were also put in the prison with Lhikan, who had become a Turaga.

The other Toa Metru also came to Po-Metru aboard a Vahki Transport when they saw Toa Lhikan's Spirit Star heading that way. The Toa battled Nidhiki and Krekka in one of the Assembler's Villages, until a herd of Kikanalo stampeded through the village. It was also here that Nokama found out that Kikanalo are quite intelligent through the use of her Kanohi Rau. The Kikanalo also led the three Toa Metru toward the other Toa, after explaining that they saw a "tall Matoran" being taken away to the Canyon of Unending Whispers by the Dark Hunters.

Po-Metru after the Great Cataclysm

After the Great Cataclysm occurred, Po-Metru was the least damaged part of the city. When Onewa was turned into a Toa Hordika and was sent on a mission to find parts to use to build Airships, he stumbled upon Teridax's Lair with Rahaga Pouks.

Around a thousand years later, when the Turaga, Toa Nuva and the Matoran returned to Metru Nui, all the Matoran took shelter in Po-Metru while their homes were being repaired. The entire Metru, as well as the whole city, was later repaired by the Staff of Artakha. Later, the Toa Hagah and Toa Mahri drove a massive Rahi beast to Po-Metru in order to prevent it from causing damage to the more heavily populated Metru and brought it down after a drawn-out battle.

After Makuta Teridax took over the Matoran Universe, the Toa Mahri had a battle with a group of Rahkshi of Heat Vision in Po-Metru.

Along with the rest of Metru Nui, Po-Metru was greatly damaged when a fragment of Aqua Magna impacted the Core Processor during Teridax's battle with Mata Nui in the Prototype Robot. The surviving Matoran abandoned the city and evacuated with the rest of the residents of the Matoran Universe for the surface of Spherus Magna. Later, Po-Metru, along with all other locations in the Matoran Universe, was dismantled.[OGQ: Dec 13 2010, 04:34 PM][1]
