  • The Great Beings form the synthetic substance known as Protodermis out of Energized Protodermis. As a byproduct of this process, Antidermis is also created. Protodermis, and Antidermis to a lesser extent, is transmuted into different states of matter and employed by the Great Beings to create sapient life.
  • Inspired by the Agori of Spherus Magna, the Great Beings create Matoran to inhabit the universe, starting with the Av-Matoran named Takua.[1][2]
  • The Great Beings begin construction of the Great Spirit Mata Nui.[3]
  • Protodermis, in its various material forms, is employed as the basic building block of the Matoran Universe, although several pools of Energized Protodermis and one of Antidermis are also eventually placed within.[4]
  • The powerful being Tren Krom is created to power the universe.[5][6][7]
The Matoran Universe
  • The Legendary Mask of Creation and the Mask of Alternate Futures are created by the Great Beings.[8][9][10]
  • The Great Beings create the brothers Karzahni and Artakha. While they vie for ownership of the Mask of Creation, the Great Beings build islands for them to rule over. Artakha eventually overcomes Karzahni and secures the Legendary Kanohi, while Karzahni is given the Mask of Alternate Futures.[11]
  • Construction on Artakha is completed, and it is the first island to come into existence in the Matoran Universe.[12] Karzahni is completed soon afterward, becoming the second.[13] The transfer of Matoran to the islands of the two brothers begins. The Matoran believe that if they work well, they will be brought to Artakha, while the lazy or damaged are sent to the realm ruled by Karzahni to be repaired. However, Karzahni does not do a very good job and gives the Matoran weapons to compensate; he sends some of these Matoran to the Southern Continent because he is afraid to let anyone see his work.[14][12] Artakha, meanwhile, throws himself into his work and begins forging unique Kanohi, as well as the early Toa, for which the Great Beings provided materials.[15]
  • The Great Beings create the first Rahi, sea creatures of tremendous size.[16][17] Smaller Rahi such as the ancient Pit War Tortoise are also formed some time afterward.[18][19]
  • The Hand of Artakha is formed to serve the will of Mata Nui.[20][21]
  • Helryx, the first Toa, comes into being on Artakha and assists in initial construction of the city of Metru Nui.[16][22][23]
  • The Kanohi Ignika is forged in the fortress of the Valley of the Maze. After it curses one of the Great Beings, they come to fear and respect it. Several crucial fail-safes for the Matoran Universe are programmed into the Legendary Mask of Life. Two Great Beings later bring it to the center of the Southern Continent, near the village of Voya Nui. There they burrow a secret underground hiding place for it, filled with traps and hazards, before leaving the Ignika on a pedestal. They then depart the chamber and leave the continent.[16][24]
  • Umbra is placed to guard the Ignika.[25]

100,000 Years Ago

  • The Great Beings create Krana, as well as Zyglak which are an accidental byproduct in the Krana creation process. The Great Beings shun the Zyglak, who fled to the darkest recesses of the universe, nursing a grudge toward their creators and the Matoran.[26] Soon afterward, the Great Beings create the Bahrag, queens of the Bohrok swarms, the first Bohrok, and the Bohrok Va.[16][27][28] They give the Bahrag a means of creating Krana that bypasses the use of Matoran and creation of Zyglak entirely, and the queens used that ever after.[29]
  • Orde is created as the first Toa of Psionics and is sent to calm down the vengeful Zyglak. Orde loses his patience and drives the Zyglak to greater levels of hatred.[30] Because of this, all future Toa and Matoran of Psionics are created as female.[30]
  • The creation and colonization of most islands and continents is completed.
  • Metru Nui is completed by the Great Beings, who place the Scroll of Preparations inside the Great Temple.[31][32]
  • The Toa Cordak, the first Toa Team, consisting of eight members and led by Lesovikk, is formed.[16]
  • After the founding of Metru Nui, the Hand of Artakha, after operating for more than 200 years, disbands in favor of newly formed Toa teams. To replace it, Toa Helryx founds the Order of Mata Nui. [33][20][34][35]
  • The first Toa Canisters are built by Matoran.[16]
  • The Toa Mata come into being on Artakha, awakened on Daxia, and the Order recruits Hydraxon and Spinax to train them.[16][36][37]
  • The Av-Matoran are tasked with the preparation of Karda Nui for Mata Nui's awakening.[38][39]
  • Axonn, a former member of the Hand of Artakha, begins conquering various islands in the south. Later, he is approached by Hydraxon to join the Order of Mata Nui.[40]
The Toa Mata
  • After their training, the Toa Mata go to Karda Nui to protect the Av-Matoran from the Avohkah, byproducts of the Matoran's labors, while Hydraxon becomes the jailor of the Pit.[41]
  • Tren Krom is moved from Karda Nui to a remote island; Mata Nui is placed in full control of the Matoran Universe.[42]
  • The Av-Matoran depart Karda Nui, and the Toa Mata travel inside the Codrex to enter their Toa Canisters.[43]
  • Mata Nui awakens for the first time and the Energy Storms commence in Karda Nui.[44]
  • The Great Beings complete the Red Star as a booster jet for the Matoran Universe and place Kestora inside it.[45]
  • The Great Beings program further sapient species into Mata Nui's consciousness for him to create.[46] In time, Mata Nui creates these species to populate the Matoran Universe, including the Makuta species out of the Antidermis pool the Great Beings have left.[16]
  • Within a matter of days of the Order of Mata Nui, the Brotherhood of Makuta, led by Makuta Miserix, is formed by Mata Nui, with the purpose of creating and modifying beings as needed and maintaining order in the universe.[33][47][48] In addition, due to the influence of the Great Beings, the creation of Kraata and Rahkshi begins in full.[49]
  • Makuta Teridax comes into the possession of the Kanohi Kraahkan, which was originally forged on Artakha and given to the Brotherhood.[50][51][citation needed: date??]
  • Makuta create the Zivon, which is placed in the Field of Shadows for unknown reasons.[52][citation needed: date??]








Revised Edition

Pre-Launch

[note 1]

Over 100,000 Years Ago

  • Basic Compounds Formed: Well before the discovery of Energized Protodermis, the Great Beings form the synthetic substance known as Protodermis.[53] As a byproduct of the Protodermis creation process, Antidermis is also created.[54][55] Protodermis, and Antidermis to a lesser extent, is transmuted into different states of matter and employed by the Great Beings to create everything in the Matoran Universe.[56] The later discovery of Energized Protodermis prompts the building of the Great Spirit Robot and is used by the Great Beings to stabilize the power sources in it and the Red Star.[57][58][59]
  • Construction of Mata Nui and the Matoran Universe: The programming for Mata Nui is completed and the creation of the Matoran Universe begins.[60][3][16] The shaping of the Great Spirit Robot is influenced by the designs for the Toa Mata, which are completed by then.[61][62][63] Protodermis, in its various material forms, is employed as the basic building block of the Matoran Universe, although several pools of Energized Protodermis and one of Antidermis are also eventually placed within.[4]
  • First Matoran Created: Inspired by the Agori of Spherus Magna, the Great Beings create Matoran to inhabit the universe, starting with the Av-Matoran named Takua.[1][2][16] The Matoran are the first things the Great Beings create for the Matoran Universe.[64][65][7] The Matoran are responsible for much of the construction of the universe.[66]
  • Tren Krom Created and Placed: Following the creation of the Matoran, the organic entity known as Tren Krom is created.[7][6][5] He is subsequently placed in Karda Nui to maintain the functioning of the Matoran Universe until Mata Nui is fully prepared to take over.[42]
  • Creation of Umbra: Umbra is created by the Great Beings as one of the earliest beings in the Matoran Universe.[67][68] He is one of a small number of beings to be created directly by the Great Beings, rather than later being created via Mata Nui.[69]
The Matoran Universe
  • First Landmasses Created: Construction on Artakha is completed, and it is the first island to come into existence in the Matoran Universe.[12] Karzahni is completed soon afterward, becoming the second.[13] Other landmasses such as the Southern Continent eventually follow.[24] Notably, some individuals who will later serve the Order of Mata Nui are involved in the construction of Artakha and Karzahni.[70]
  • First Kanohi: The Legendary Mask of Creation and the Mask of Alternate Futures are created by the Great Beings.[8][9][10] Following this, the Kanohi Ignika is forged in the fortress of the Valley of the Maze. After it curses one of the Great Beings, they come to fear and respect it. Several crucial fail-safes for the Matoran Universe are programmed into the Legendary Mask of Life.[67][16]
  • Artakha and Karzahni: After the forging of the Mask of Life, but still early in the construction process, the Great Beings create the brothers Karzahni and Artakha, who are among the universe's earliest creations.[71][6][72] The two brothers are allowed to compete to earn the Mask of Creation. Artakha eventually overcomes Karzahni and secures the Legendary Kanohi, while Karzahni is given the Mask of Alternate Futures.[11] Both take up positions in the islands they ultimately name after themselves, and the transfer of Matoran to the islands of the two brothers begins. The Matoran believe that if they work well, they will be brought to Artakha, while the lazy or damaged are sent to the realm ruled by Karzahni to be repaired.[73][71]
  • Karzahni's Assignment: However, Karzahni does not do a very good job and gives the Matoran weapons to compensate; he sends some of these Matoran to the Southern Continent because he is afraid to let anyone see his work.[14][12] More and more over time, he grows increasingly unaware of what happens in the larger universe, and is left unaware of the existence of Mata Nui, Makuta, or Toa following their eventual arrivals.[73][71][74]
  • Artakha's Assignment: Artakha, meanwhile, throws himself into his work and begins forging unique Kanohi, as well as tools that will benefit the earliest Toa and designs for Metru Nui. It is out of Artakha that the creation of the universe is overseen by the Great Beings.[75]
  • Placment of the Kanohi Ignika: Two Great Beings traverse Artakha, Karzahni, and other landmasses and bring the Mask of Life to the center of the Southern Continent, near the village of Voya Nui. There they burrow a secret underground hiding place for it, filled with traps and hazards, before leaving the Ignika on a pedestal. They then depart the chamber and leave the continent.[67][16] Umbra is placed as a guardian of the Ignika.[76][77]
  • Hand of Artakha formed: Predating the first Toa, the Hand of Artakha is organized to act as public peace enforcers within the Matoran Universe, challenging threats to the universe and stopping natural disasters.[20][78][79][21][80] Shadow Stealer is among the Hand's early operatives.[78][79] In time, Helryx, Axonn, and Hydraxon also serve in the Hand.[20][81][20]
  • First Toa Created: The Great Beings act on their plans to create Toa, modeling them after Glatorian and Element Lords.[1][82][83] Pieces for the Toa are made in a facility on Spherus Magna before being delivered to Artakha for completion.[84][85] A Toa of Water named Helryx is the first Toa to be created, coming into existence on Artakha.[86][87][16] Some time later, a Toa of Psionics named Orde is similarly created.[88] Moreover, the pieces of the Toa Mata are prepared and delivered, but incomplete at this point.[85][62][89]
  • Metru Nui Construction Begins: As her first assignment, Helryx is tasked with assisting on the construction of Metru Nui.[86][21][23] The Great Beings lay the foundations of Metru Nui and the Matoran do much of the actual construction.[90]
  • Krana and Zyglak: The Great Beings create the first Krana by exposing the leftovers from the Matoran creation process to Energized Protodermis, although as the Great Beings had discovered some time ago, this has the adverse effect of creating Zyglak as well, with Zyglak being one of the first species the Great Beings create.[26][27] The Great Beings develop a method for creating Krana that bypasses the use of Matoran and creation of Zyglak.[29]
  • The Zyglak Incident: As his first assignment, Orde is tasked with calming the vengeful Zyglak. Orde loses his patience and drives the Zyglak to greater levels of hatred. Because of this, all future Toa and Matoran of Psionics are created as female.[30]
  • First Rahi Created: The Great Beings create the first Rahi, sea creatures of tremendous size.[16][17] Smaller Rahi such as the ancient Pit War Tortoise are also formed some time afterward.[18][19]
  • Tren Krom's Reign: During his reign, Tren Krom forms monstrous creations which in time are left to reside on the Tren Krom Peninsula.[91]


100,000 Years Ago

The Toa Mata
  • Initial Activation of Mata Nui: The Great Beings program a number of sapient species and other creatures into Mata Nui. Although he remains unconscious, the Mata Nui program is activated.[16][92][93] With the programming that the Great Beings had provided, the Mata Nui program created numerous sapient species to populate the universe.[94][95][46][48][96][97]
  • New Generations of Toa: Instead of building more Toa directly, the Great Beings arrange for the transformation of numerous Matoran such as Lesovikk and Jovan into Toa.[98][99][100][101] Unlike prior Toa, who primarily acted independently, eight Toa band together to form the first Toa team under the leadership of Lesovikk.[16][102][103] As more and more Toa pop up, the idea of a Toa team becomes commonplace. Interestingly, although the Toa Mata were designed to be a functional Toa team long before the Toa Cordak organized, their construction was not finished soon enough to be the first active team, nor were they ever public figures even when they were.[89][62][104] Around this time, the first Toa canisters are created.[16]
  • Metru Nui Completed: Construction on the island of Metru Nui is completed and the city is founded.[90][105] At this time, the Great Beings first place the Scroll of Preparations in the Great Temple.[32][31]
  • The Order of Mata Nui: Soon after the foundation of Metru Nui, with the Toa proving far more successful as Mata Nui's enforcers than the Hand of Artakha, the Hand's leaders choose to begin disbanding the organization.[34][20][35] In its place, Helryx forms the Order of Mata Nui under the supervision of the Great Beings.[106][34][107] Many of its earliest members were individuals who assisted in the building of Artakha, Karzahni, and Metru Nui, and because of this they are able to build the island of Daxia themselves, without outside help from Matoran or others.[106] Helryx and Hydraxon are among the Hand operatives that immediately switch over to the Order.[108][20][81][107] Not every recruit from the Hand of Artakha is brought into the Order, however, and the Hand continues to exist until it is finally defunct 200 years after its creation.[20][93][109] Members such as Shadow Stealer and Axonn go their own way, although Axonn is eventually brought into the Order.[78][79][110][40]
  • The Brotherhood of Makuta: Within days of the creation of the Order of Mata Nui, the Brotherhood of Makuta forms, organizing the Makuta species Mata Nui has brought into existence.[16][111][112][33] Led by Makuta Miserix, they are tasked with the purpose of creating and modifying beings as needed and maintaining order in the universe.[47][48][113] From the beginning, the Order of Mata Nui is wary of the Brotherhood.[114] Due to the influence of the Great Beings, the creation of Rahkshi begins in full through the mutation of Kraata.[49] Certain Rahi such as Blade Burrowers and Visorak are programmed into the Makuta in advance by the Great Beings, although the Makuta are free to invent most Rahi that come into existence.[115][116][117][46][94]
  • Assembling the Toa Mata: On Artakha, the pieces of the Toa Mata are fitted together, and the assembled Toa are delivered to Daxia for activation by the Order of Mata Nui.[85][16][36][76] Upon their awakening, they are informed of their purpose and begin training under Hydraxon.[108][118][119] After the Toa Mata are trained, Hydraxon is deployed to the Pit.[118]
  • The Bahrag: As one of the latter creations to come about, the Great Beings create the Bahrag through Mata Nui.[16][120][96][97] Bohrok are later formed through the evolution of Av-Matoran into inorganic life.[108] They are then equipped with Krana and set to rest in the Bohrok nests until they are needed. The Bohrok Va are also produced at this time.[28] The Great Beings give the Bahrag a means of creating Krana that bypasses the use of Matoran and creation of Zyglak entirely, and the queens used that ever after.[29]
  • Battle in Karda Nui: As their first assignment, the Toa Mata are deployed by the Order of Mata Nui to eliminate the Avohkah infestation that has come about as a result of the preparations of the Av-Matoran in Karda Nui for Mata Nui's awakening.[38][39][121] This battle wages for months before the Toa Mata are ultimately successful.[122][123]
  • Awakening of Mata Nui: With the creation process complete, Tren Krom is removed from Karda Nui and imprisoned on a remote island.[42] The Toa Mata are sealed in canisters in the Codrex and the Energy Storms begin.[124][125] Mata Nui is awakened and assumes full control over the universe.[126][127][128]
  • The Red Star: The Great Beings complete the Red Star as a booster jet for the Matoran Universe and place Kestora inside it.[45]
  • Mask of Shadows: Makuta Teridax comes into the possession of the Kanohi Kraahkan, which was originally forged on Artakha and given to the Brotherhood.[50][51][citation needed: date??]

Notes

  1. Nearly a hundred items have been found in BIONICLE canon pertaining to the pre-launch period, and although not all of them can be reconciled, the BS01 editors have labored to produce a timeline that is consistent first with all published BIONICLE media and then with as many Greg quotes as possible. On occasion, quotes are interpreted in the larger context of the larger body of canon, and, on the rarer occasion that proves impossible, some quotes are discarded if they contradict published media. A comprehensive listing of the sources that have been taken into account can be found here.
