The Daxia Fortress was a large fortress located on the end of the island of Daxia. It was the main base of operations for the Order of Mata Nui.


Daxia was first discovered by the Hand of Artakha more than 100,000 years ago. Although the island seemed uninhabitable at first, Toa Helryx realized that there were many natural wonders on the island, and established a base. The fortress was constructed, and the Order of Mata Nui was formed.[1]

After the Toa Mata were created, they were transported to Daxia, and awoken inside a specialized chamber within the fortress. After being introduced to each other by Helryx, the Toa exited the chamber, and were trained in the use of their mask powers and Elemental Powers.[2]

100,000 years later, the Toa Mata (having since transformed into the more powerful Toa Nuva) were transported back to Daxia, where they witnessed the use of the Staff of Artakha to restore the damage done to the Matoran Universe.[3]

After the Pit was destroyed, the Order was forced to construct their own jail within the fortress, where it housed several notorious criminals until the Pit was fixed.[4]

Mazeka once infiltrated the fortress without clearance and snuck into Helryx's chamber in an attempt to get information about Karda Nui. There, he met with Tobduk, and both left on a mission to Destral.[5]

After Makuta Teridax took control of Mata Nui's body, he destroyed the fortress, taking out many Order members with it.[6]


There were a myriad of locations, hallways and chambers inside the fortress, including a central well of energy, an armory, a vehicle center, and an equipment warehouse. The fortress was also equipped with technology powerful enough to bring the entire island down.[1]

Helryx's Chamber

Helryx constructed herself a chamber from which she directed the Order.[7] The chamber was heavily protected, and lay in a corridor which itself had numerous traps. However, there was a secret escape tunnel located in the wall.[5]

Spherical Chamber

The Spherical Chamber was a vast, dark, cavernous chamber where the Toa Mata arrived after they were awakened. A long platform juts into space high above the ground, and . Helryx can project her voice into this room, as well as into its antechamber where the Toa Mata were first awakened on slabs. Lightstones from above can illuminate things here and project the image of the three virtues.[8]

The chamber came to house a power cradle where Staff of Artakha was meant to be used. The cradle augmented the power of the Staff to spread it throughout the Matoran Universe, save for Karda Nui. The process was utilized to repair the damage caused by the Great Cataclysm.[3]


The fortress contained a library, which held a multitude of tablets and information located within it. The library was known to contain a copy of Norik's compendium of various Rahi.[1]
