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, Makuta Teridax, disguised as Turaga Dume ordered the closing of the Sea Gates around the island city's dome. Kodan was sent with two of the Toa Mangai on a mission to close one of these gates. However, he and the Toa were killed by the Dark Hunter Eliminator, whom Teridax had hired to assassinate the Matoran and Toa.[2] Eliminator's lightning-like energy blasts fried his artificial intelligence, preventing his mind from being revived on the Red Star.[1]

After his death, he was officially credited with creation of Akilini as a token of appreciation 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]
