Nurtaka was the Makuta prætor of the Southern Region of the Midwestern Islands. This region includes the Domes overseen by Ferofax, Rehkit, Sharahk, Solax, Textral, and Ul'yathe, among others.


Nurtaka was brought into being approximately 100,000 years B.G.C. by the Great Spirit Mata Nui, using a pool of the substance known as Antidermis located somewhere on one of the Southern Islands in the south of the Matoran Universe. As was intended, he became a member of the Brotherhood of Makuta, an organization devoted to serving the will of the Great Spirit and maintaining order. Nurtaka was responsible for creating several species of Rahi to populate the universe.

After the Matoran Civil War on Metru Nui, Nurtaka was assigned by Miserix to monitor the several domes within the Southern Region of the Midwestern Islands.

When Teridax demanded a convocation to reveal his plan, Nurtaka agreed to go along with the plan.

Nurtaka, like the other Makuta, evolved beyond the need of a physical body, turning to a simpler form of Antidermis within armor. Teridax ordered the Nynrah Ghosts to come to Destral to modify his armor to accommodate for the new virus-like form of the Antidermis.

Abilities & Traits

Being a Makuta, Nurtaka possessed control over Shadow, the ability to create Kraata, shape-shifting abilities, and all forty-two Kraata powers.
