Brutaka is a member of the Order of Mata Nui.
Brutaka originally resided on his homeland with the rest of his kind, where he was considered a prominent figure. He later served as a lieutenant and soldier within the ranks of the Brotherhood of Makuta, though grew weary of the regimented lifestyle and left. He was then recruited into the Order of Mata Nui with a reputation of being a warrior-scholar, known for his abilities in both analysis and sword-fighting. After a series of adventures, including teleporting a Tahtorak from its home island to the city of Metru Nui for his own amusement, Brutaka was teamed with his friend, a powerful and famous warrior named Axonn. The two were posted near the village of Voya Nui to serve as the Kanohi Ignika's first line of defense. At the same time, they also secretly protected the region's Matoran.
Brutaka and Axonn survived the Great Cataclysm and the resulting earthquake that tore Voya Nui and the surrounding area from the Southern Continent and sent it rocketing up to the surface of the planet. Brutaka was shaken by the event and believed that the Great Spirit Mata Nui had either died or else abandoned the universe. Axonn argued that Mata Nui had only lapsed into a coma and would make all things right when he reawakened, and Brutaka continued to perform his duties, though he remained convinced that Mata Nui was no longer protecting them.
When six Skakdi calling themselves Piraka came to Voya Nui in search of the Ignika, Brutaka aided them, dispatching the Toa Nuva and the Voya Nui Resistance Team with a single blow from his Rotating Blades and fighting Axonn. He found that he could increase his own power by absorbing Antidermis, a mysterious substance the Piraka brought with them, and made a deal with their leader for access to it. He also harbored desires to claim the Ignika for himself. During a battle with the newly created Toa Inika, however, two of the Piraka, Hakann and Thok, stole Brutaka's powers with a Zamor Sphere that contained a portion of Vezok's ability to absorb a foe's powers. When confronted by the two, Brutaka was forced to divulge the location of the 777 Stairs.
Brutaka's powers were returned after another special Zamor Sphere hit Hakann and Thok. Upon reviving, however, Brutaka engaged Axonn in combat. During the fierce battle, Brutaka summoned an interdimensional portal to teleport Axonn to the Field of Shadows. Shocked by the extent of his friend's disillusionment, Axonn flew into a rage, defeating Brutaka and knocking him unconscious. At that moment, Botar appeared, taking the defeated Brutaka to the Pit despite Axonn's protests.
Brutaka awoke in the Pit, and was confronted by the Barraki, who forced him to realize that he had been mutated by the Pit Mutagen and could breathe underwater. Upon hearing of the Ignika's appearance in the Pit from the Barraki, Brutaka formed an alliance with the warlords and demanded to be taken to the Ignika. The Barraki led him to Dekar, who was in possession of the mask. Brutaka cited his prior membership in the Order in an attempt to convince the Matoran to give him the mask, but as neither he nor the Barraki had ever heard of the organization, he was not believed. Kalmah then had one of his Giant Squids drag Brutaka away.
Brutaka eventually killed the squid, and swam off. Due to the mutagen, his transformation accelerated and his physical appearance was altered. He found Teridax, the Makuta of Metru Nui, in the body of the robot Maxilos, attempting to recreate the Nui Stone with the Staff of Artakha. Recognizing a similarity between the Makuta's actions and his own, Brutaka intervened, attacking Teridax and snatching the Staff. He then called on Botar, who teleported into the ocean and took the staff, staying briefly to express his gratitude. Ordering Matoro to return to the other Toa Mahri, Brutaka began a fight with the Makuta and drove him to a stalemate. He ended the battle by informing his foe that the Ignika was in the hands of Hydraxon. Forced to break off the engagement by this news, Teridax left, and warned Brutaka that their fight was not over.
Return to the Order
The Order of Mata Nui rescued Brutaka from the Pit and gave him a breathing apparatus so he could survive on land again. He was also declared a probationary member of the Order. Soon afterwards, Brutaka went to Metru Nui with Helryx and Krakua, where he shrunk a sundial and gave it to Krakua, who in turn gave it to Takanuva. He then captured the Dark Hunter Dweller, and brought him to Helryx, who later had him transported him to Daxia. He also attempted to use his Olmak to send Takanuva to Karda Nui, after Takanuva was told that Brutaka would be working with the Toa Mahri to protect Metru Nui in his absence. However, slight damage to the mask from the Pit resulted in Takanuva being sent to another dimension instead. Soon afterwards, Helryx approached him with a new proposal, one with the potential to restore his status in the Order.
Mission to Rescue Miserix
As the Order of Mata Nui began to openly engage the Brotherhood of Makuta in combat, they turned to Brutaka to lead a team in what could potentially be a suicide mission against the Brotherhood; to rescue their former leader, Miserix. The team consisted of the insane Skakdi clone Vezon, the treacherous Vortixx Roodaka, the rogue Makuta Spiriah, the Dark Hunter Lariska and the Barraki Carapar and Takadox. The team headed to one of the southern island chains, where they were to attempt to find Miserix. Lariska traveled behind the group, and was not introduced to them.
When the team traveled to Stelt to purchase a boat for their travels, Brutaka bluffed a trader using Roodaka as payment, due the people of his homeland wanting her because of her involvement in Sidorak's death. Before he handed her over, he told Vezon to attack the trader on the head so it would look like there was a fight. However, Brutaka then knocked the trader unconscious and had Takadox hypnotize the beings on the ship and have them jump overboard so they could steal the ship. He also sent a message to Lariska, ordering her to make contact with Ehlek's species, who would help them.
After he told the team where they were heading, a Zyglak fleet appeared under Spiriah's command, with the Makuta using his weather control power to hold the ship in place. Spiriah explained that he was taking the ship to Zakaz, so he could exact revenge on the Skakdi. For three days, Spiriah held his position, until they arrived at Zakaz. As the Zyglak armada was about to attack Zakaz, they were ambushed by Ehlek's species and the fleet was destroyed. Brutaka then attacked Spiriah, knocking him down, and revealed Lariska to the rest of the team. Brutaka regained command, and they continued on their journey.
Later, they arrived at Tren Krom's Island where weapons had been stored by Brutaka's fellow members Botar and Trinuma, at the cost of Botar's life. After Brutaka had distributed the weapons, the group was attacked and Brutaka taken by the legendary entity Tren Krom. After failing to learn of the current status of the universe from Brutaka's well shielded mind, Tren Krom turned his attention to Lariska, probing her mind with more successful results. After killing Carapar, who had assaulted the crimson being, Brutaka was discarded in Tren Krom's rage, and permitted to escape along with the rest of his team. They returned to their boat, and resumed their mission.
Before arriving on Artidax, Lariska expressed a concern for Takadox, but Brutaka brushed it aside as nothing. When they arrived, Brutaka and Spiriah disembarked first, the latter setting off a trap sensitive to Makuta, and was almost taken underground and suffocated by the living sand. Brutaka, unable to pull him free, had Roodaka launch a Rhotuka at the sand, transforming it into Fireflyers. Spiriah attempted to leave, but Brutaka convinced him that if he stuck to the mission and they succeeded, Spiriah stood a chance to gain ultimate power as leader of whatever remained of the Brotherhood. Lariska later approached Brutaka, knowing that his claim was a lie, but Brutaka insisted it was the only way to distract him from the fact that he may perish in the course of the mission.
The team continued on, with Spiriah walking ahead to set off any more traps, thus protecting the others. When he nearly stepped on a vine and set off a trap, Brutaka was stopped by Vezon, and they entered the only passageway through the island. Upon entering the tunnel, Brutaka realized that Takadox was missing, only to find the treacherous Barraki severing the vine rigged to set off a cascade of boulders, trapping the others inside the tunnel.
After the team recovered, Brutaka convinced them to continue instead of trying to free themselves. On the way through, Brutaka explained a little of the history of Artidax, how it is normally a raging volcano, but Tahu and Kopaka had since quelled it, as part of their own mission. After leading the team across a bridge, Roodaka questioned Brutaka's motives in wanting Miserix. Brutaka explained that his employers needed him as a tool to use against the Brotherhood. Ignoring Vezon's ramblings at first, Brutaka eventually noticed that thousands of insects had gathered in the chamber the were in, penning them off from escaping or going forward.
Spiriah was forcefully convinced by Brutaka to try and control the insects, the Makuta failed in his attempts, revealing a much more powerful will than his own behind the insects. Roodaka again used her Rhotuka to escape the chamber, mutating the insects so they fought amongst each other, creating a large opening which the team rushed through, into Miserix's chamber.
Brutaka approached Miserix with the intention of freeing him. Vezon interrupted, but was blasted with Heat Vision by an annoyed Miserix. The former leader of the Brotherhood absorbed Spiriah, and was convinced to go with Lariska pointed out that the chains holding Miserix used his own power to contain him, and Brutaka ordered them to be broken. Upon finding the weak link, Brutaka and Roodaka fired at it until one of the chains broke, causing the Klakk to attack the team. Brutaka parried the streams of sound they created, until Miserix freed himself from the other chains and unleashed a power scream upon the Klakk, knocking them, along with Lariska and Vezon, unconscious. Brutaka denied Miserix the knowledge that he wanted, and instead requested for the former leader to shrink to an appropriate size. Amused, Miserix broke the side of the volcano so that he could escape, and keep his size. After Roodaka failed to convince Miserix to be her ally, Brutaka loaded the rest of his team onto Miserix, who had since sprouted wings, and had them exit the chamber, flying north.
Miserix took them all to Daxia, and Brutaka was told by Helryx that the Order was coming out of hiding. He soon after passed this message on to Axonn after he had been brought to Daxia as well.
War Against the Brotherhood
He accompanied Axonn to the island of Zakaz, hoping to make a pact with one of its leaders for the alliance of his people. He and Axonn were confronted by the amassed army of Skakdi warriors, and were soon backed into a corner. Though Brutaka found amusement in the battle, his former partner did not, and Brutaka soon dragged them both out of their hiding place, seemingly to surrender. When they were taken to see Nektann, the pair convinced him to ally with them against the Brotherhood of Makuta. They then left to convince the other warlords to align themselves with their cause.
Successfully organizing a troop of Skakdi to attack an army of Rahkshi on a southern island, Brutaka and Axonn then headed towards a location on the island where the Makuta were created, which turned out to be a large pool of greenish-black substance. While discussing the destruction of the pool, the pool exploded, blinding the two warriors, and causing them to stumble into it. Brutaka was heavily affected by the Antidermis. His power had increased to a massive degree, and his mind was linked to the essence. He pulled Axonn out, and began muttering about Spherus Magna, and the Shattering. Soon, he used his Kanohi Olmak to transport Axonn and himself to a location he was adamant about going to. They arrived in a chamber far below the Coliseum in Metru Nui alongside the Toa Hagah, Miserix, Zaktan, Helryx, and Keetongu. The latter two had just exited from a portal themselves, though Brutaka denied having anything to do with it, instead stating it was the doing of another Kanohi Olmak. Makuta Teridax's voice then resounded from around the room, and he shot a bolt of energy at Brutaka, destroying his mask, so that they could not leave. He then killed Zaktan and caused an increasingly loud hum which Brutaka stopped by striking at the machinery in the room.
Miserix then tried to destroy the machinery, but Brutaka blasted him back and explained that they were within the mind of Mata Nui. Miserix tried to attack again, but Teridax immobilized him by turning him into a picture. Soon after, he banished Brutaka, Axonn, and Keetongu to the southern edge of the universe.
Brutaka met up with Axonn, and they returned to the chamber where Helryx was being held, just as Tren Krom, in the body of Lewa Nuva, was beginning to manipulate some machinery in order to send a message to Mata Nui. Brutaka warned them that Tren Krom should fulfill his mission, as the Matoran Universe had to live so it could help a far away world. Helryx, Miserix, and Axonn argued against him, believing Teridax should be stopped. As Tuyet and Tren Krom joined Brutaka, he threatened to kill the others should they attempt to destroy the universe. In the ensuing fight, Brutaka combated Axonn, but the chaos was soon stopped by Artakha as he teleported into the room. Artakha returned Tren Krom to his island, and spoke with Helryx before being stopped by Teridax, who transported them all into space. Lewa grabbed onto Brutaka so he would be teleported too. Then, Vezon took the entire group and pulled them onto the Bota Magna, and they ended up in the cell of the Great Being who touched the Ignika.
Battle for Leadership
He is known to be next in command in the Battle for Leadership. He came to Bara Magna for some reason and teleported Ceasame to another universe. He later freed Shadow Ceasame and Icarax 2 from Stelt. He returned to Paxilla with Icarax 2, Shadow Ceasame, Ice Crusher and Roodaka and helped in the fight against the Rahkshi and Visorak. He fought in the war in Teridax Nui, but after the Order lost, he went back to Paxilla.
In The Escape, Brutaka was convinced to send Brinoa, Skyrax, and Orn an alternate dimension. However, his mask was not intended for the use of Toa/Makuta hybrids, and so Skyrax and Orn were both killed, and Brinoa was changed into a true Toa.
In R.Evolution, he was convined to join the Predacon Uprising. His anatomy was slightly altered in the Mutagen virus, but his appearance was hardly changed. In the Future, Brutaka activates his Kanohi, attempting to get the Autobots in the Zone of Darkness. Arcee and Wheeljack defeat him, strip him of his mask and weapon, and force him through his own portal. He has been trapped there since, and is unlikely to ever return.
Because in the Broken Order Universe the Brotherhood of Makuta's influence was impaired by the equally powerful Kritor Alliance, Brutaka was never recruited by the Makuta and was instead on his home island when the Arbiter, Axonn led his conquests of several Southern Islands. Following Axonn's recruitment by the Kritor Alliance, the former conqueror donated his small kingdom to the Kritors who sent several agents to investigate the islands. When several soldiers arrived at his home island, Brutaka was impressed by them and sought to become a soldier as well. Brutaka was recruited and rose through the ranks. Much to his surprise, he eventually found himself working alongside the interrogator, Axonn. Although their relationship was rough at first, they ironically became good friends.
Brutaka and Axonn were the two Kritor agents who intercepted a being from another universe who landed on Bythrain's shores. Kritor refusal to turn over this being would be the spark that ignited Kritor/Makuta War.
Brutaka wore a golden Kanohi, a Great Olmak, the Mask of Dimensional Gates. Using it, he could open a portal to another location or parallel dimension of the Matoran Universe. His Olmak was later destroyed by Teridax. He also wielded Rotating Blades that were charged with Lightning, and two hidden Protosteel daggers on his back.
Brutaka possessed many powers natural to his species. As with Axonn's powers, their full extent are unknown. His known powers are listed below:
- Immense strength and physical endurance, allowing him to easily duel Makuta Teridax. This also allowed him to use his Rotating Blades to their full potential, allowing him to defeat the Toa Nuva and six Voya Nui Matoran in one strike.
- Slight resistance to the Pit's mutagen.
- Able to absorb Antidermis into his system. This made him stronger and fiercer.
Brutaka also, as an Order of Mata Nui member, had his mind shielded from telepathy and mental powers through deliberate training. He also could free himself from a stasis field of Teridax's with ease.
After being mutated in the Pit, he grew a dorsal fin and spikes out of his armor, and became a water-breather. When he was released by the Order and redeemed for his mission to find Miserix, he was granted a breathing device, a helmet of water, to be on land. After he absorbed a large amount of Antidermis, Brutaka's armor was cracked in several places, with enlarged muscle breaking through at some parts. A green aura surrounded him. He also could levitate with this power, and gained Makuta powers. The mutation was reversed by the Ignika after the final battle.
Brutaka was originally a faithful soldier for the Order of Mata Nui, though, over the years, he began to lose faith in Mata Nui, eventually to the point where he betrayed the Order altogether.
After falling into Antidermis, Brutaka gained knowledge of the Great Spirit's mission. He also started referring to himself in the first person plural, saying "we" instead of "I", etc.
