The Skull Raiders were an ancient band of pirates who plagued Okoto.


Thousands of years ago, the Skull Raiders, under the leadership of Kulta, besieged the peaceful Okotans. They were eventually defeated and driven into a range of mountains in the Region of Stone by the Mask Makers Ekimu and Makuta and the Protectors of that time. Afterwards, Makuta approached them in secret and offered them the chance to rule alongside him when he unleashed the Mask of Ultimate Power. When the Great Cataclysm reshaped Okoto, the Skull Raiders were trapped in caverns beneath the mountains, which they eventually built into a sprawling underground city.

Kulta eventually discovered a means of escape and allied with Makuta's dark spirit, the only remnant of the Mask Maker, who instructed most of the Skull Raiders to remain in their city. Kulta continued to serve Makuta as the leader of the Skull Army.

A Skull Spider-enslaved hawk eventually brought a pair of Okotan children from the Region of Stone to the Skull Raiders, and later Toa Lewa was captured as well. The Skull Raiders then captured the other Toa and the recently revived Ekimu, whom the Skull Raiders despised and blamed for their long imprisonment. A series of battles subsequently broke out, but Kulta and the other Skull Raiders were eventually imprisoned after Ekimu brought down the ceiling of their city.


The Skull Raiders are violent and savage, perfectly willing to harm innocents in order to achieve their vile ends. They also speak their own guttural language and, with the exception of Kulta, do not understand the language of the Okotans, though Ekimu can speak theirs. Skull Raiders are known for not making idle threats and possess their own barbaric code of honor that demands they answer any insult. They also delight in gladiatorial combat.
