Kodan was a Po-Matoran native to Metru Nui, and one of its former Chroniclers.


On Metru Nui, Kodan was one of the many Matoran who claimed to have invented Akilini. When the Toa Mangai traveled to Metru Nui, Kodan became the Toa team's Chronicler and was given the Chronicler's Staff. He traveled with the team and recorded their exploits and victories, such as their defeat of the Kanohi Dragon.[2]

Prior to the Great Cataclysm, Kodan followed two Toa Mangai sent on mission outside of Metru Nui by Makuta Teridax, disguised as Turaga Dume.[2][3][4] It was an ambush, and Kodan and the Toa were killed by the Dark Hunter Eliminator, hired by Teridax.[2][1][5][6][7] Eliminator's lightning-like energy blasts fried his artificial intelligence, preventing his mind from being revived on the Red Star.[8]


After his loss, the Matoran of Metru Nui erected a monument in Po-Metru in his honor, giving him credit for the creation of the Akilini in gratitude for his sacrifice.[2]

When the Toa Mata were transformed into the Toa Nuva following the Battle in the Bohrok Nest, Turaga Onewa named the combined form of Pohatu's new Climbing Claws the Kodan Ball in memory of Kodan.[2]
