Amphibax is a ruthless Dark Hunter who specializes in underwater operations.


More than 80,000 years ago, Amphibax served in Ehlek's army in the League of Six Kingdoms. After a surprise attack by the Brotherhood of Makuta, Ehlek and the other Barraki disappeared. Amphibax spent some time wandering the seas, searching for Ehlek, and lost a hand at some point during his travels.[1]

Eventually, Amphibax was recruited into the Dark Hunters, who outfitted him with a spined whip in place of his lost hand. Amphibax's missions usually included attacks on ships of the Brotherhood of Makuta or raids on islands inhabited by Matoran.

After the Piraka defected from the Dark Hunters, Amphibax was assigned to monitor them from the seas around Voya Nui. He had no idea about the Barraki and Mahri Nui below the island, for he was only concerned with events on the surface. After Voya Nui's return to the Southern Continent, Amphibax returned to Odina, where he awaited his next assignment.

The Order of Mata Nui soon came out of hiding and allied with the Dark Hunters in its war against the Brotherhood. The Dark Hunters, Amphibax included, assembled a fleet and sailed to Xia, which they occupied.

When Teridax took over the universe, Amphibax and other Dark Hunters assisted the rebellion efforts against his rule.

After the Great Spirit Robot suffered crippling damage in the Battle of Bara Magna, Amphibax and other surviving inhabitants of the Matoran Universe migrated to Spherus Magna.[OGDi: Apr 4 2010, 12:11 PM][OGDi: Apr 7 2010, 01:19 PM]
