"Teridax wanted a subtle operation, a few Rahkshi, that's all. Kojol, at his peril, chose to ignore this. He assembled a strike force of Visorak, Rahkshi, and even a few Exo-Toa, intending to overwhelm any defenses on the island with one crushing blow. It didn't quite work out that way."

Summary

1,500 years[citation needed] before the Great Cataclysm, the Brotherhood of Makuta launched a strike force, led by Makuta Kojol, to steal the Mask of Light from Artakha. Despite orders to make it a small operation, Kojol unleashed an army of Rahkshi, Exo-Toa, and Visorak upon the island. When the Visorak attempted to secure the beach, two Crystal Serpents destroyed them all with concentrated solar rays.

Kojol pulled back his ships, and sent a wave of Rahkshi, who climbed over treacherous terrain. Although at first successful, they too fell to the power of the island's defenders. By that time, though, the Exo-Toa had been deployed and defeated all opposition. Kojol then entered the fortress to take the Avohkii. Despite the various traps and raging blizzards controlled by Artakha, he managed to escape with the mask.[BW][TMC, Ch. 8]

Aftermath

Against the orders of Teridax, Kojol personally oversaw the attack, making the Brotherhood unable to deny knowledge as they had planned.

Shortly after the battle was over, all of the Rahkshi involved in the battle were mysteriously killed on a mission. Then, the Exo-Toa disappeared in the middle of the night. Finally, while visiting Xia, Kojol's armor was destroyed by a Protosteel-eating virus. His essence was then destroyed in a furnace.

All of the deaths were carried out by Order of Mata Nui Member Tobduk as he eliminated all beings who knew the location of the island of Artakha by request of Artakha himself.
