Midak is an eccentric Onu-Matoran native to Metru Nui.


Metru Nui

Before the Great Cataclysm, Midak lived and worked in Onu-Metru. He was captured by the Vahki under the command of Makuta Teridax, disguised as Turaga Dume. He was then forced into a Matoran Sphere but was later rescued by the Toa Metru and awakened on the shores of Naho Bay on the island of Mata Nui.[4][5]

Mata Nui

Midak lost memories of his previous life on Metru Nui and his body was reduced in size and strength as a result of being confined in a Matoran Sphere. He helped in the building of Onu-Koro, working under Turaga Whenua's supervision and using materials from the disassembled Airships that had been used by the Toa to transport the Matoran to Mata Nui.[6]

Midak's hut and Ussal Crab stable on Mata Nui

While on Mata Nui, Midak lived in a hut just outside of the Motara Desert and Po-Koro Highway. Midak took care of Ussal Crabs, and he spent a lot of time watching the Ussal Races. He lent Ussal crabs to travelers to quickly get to Onu-Koro so they would not get lost in the dark tunnels. After Pewku had gotten too old for racing, Onepu gave her to Midak. Midak later gave Pewku to Takua so she could escort him to Onu-Koro. Later, upon hearing the news on how Takua had helped Onu-Koro with many of its problems, Midak personally thanked Takua.[7]

Subsequent to the defeat of the Bohrok-Kal, Midak was rebuilt into a stronger form.[8]

Return to Metru Nui

When Metru Nui was rediscovered, Midak and the other Matoran of Mata Nui constructed boats to reach the city,[9] where they began working on Metru Nui's reconstruction, as it had been damaged consequent to the Great Cataclysm. He temporarily stopped his work of reconstruction on order of Jaller, to force the Turaga to reveal where the Toa Nuva had gone, but he eventually got back to work.[10]

Following the downfall of Teridax in the Battle of Bara Magna, Midak departed Metru Nui with other surviving Matoran, to resettle upon Spherus Magna.[11][12]

Abilities and Traits

Midak prefers light over the usual darkness favored by most of his fellow Onu-Matoran, and enjoyed living above ground on the border of Onu-Wahi and Po-Wahi.[7] He is said to talk in detail with anyone who will listen about the joys of pure light. While most Matoran think of him as friendly, if somewhat odd, other Onu-Matoran describe him with harsher language.[13]

Like all Onu-Matoran, Midak has excellent vision in low-light conditions, and is considered physically stronger than most other Matoran.[14] His natural Onu-Matoran sensitivity to bright light does not prevent him from living aboveground comfortably.[13]
