Zanctai was the Makuta overseer of the Dome of Stelt.


Zanctai 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. Zanctai was responsible for creating several species of Rahi to populate the universe.

After the Matoran Civil War on Metru Nui, Zanctai was assigned by Miserix to monitor the Dome of Stelt that contains an island of the same name.

Sometime later, Sidorak confronted Zanctai and asked him to select his clan leader, Voporak, for experimental mutations. The Makuta agreed, altering Voporak with Energized Protodermis, Roodaka's Mutation Rhotuka, and other mutagens, until Voporak became a creature sensitive to disturbances in the flow of Time. Eventually, Zanctai lent Voporak to the Dark Hunters in an effort to teach the beast discipline.

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

Zanctai, 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.

When the Great Cataclysm struck the Matoran Universe, Zanctai was in Destral. The fortress collapsed during the earthquake, damaging his armor, thus causing his essence to leak out into the air. Mutran and Chirox were able to get him into an Exo-Toa body until his armor was repaired.

Recently, Zanctai fought with "Conjurer", who attempted to absorb his power using his Rhotuka. The ploy failed and the power overloaded the Dark Hunter's system, meanwhile Zanctai was unaffected by the attempt.

Later, while on Stelt, Miserix found Zanctai and threatened him with being torn to shreds unless he told him where Teridax was. Zanctai pointed the former hierarch of the Brotherhood of Makuta towards the right direction, hoping to be spared. He was then absorbed by Miserix.
