He formed their bodies out of a green liquid created by the Great Beings. Miserix, in the wake of the Matoran Civil War , appointed each Makuta to a certain region of the universe, in order to enforce the peace in their area and prevent another uprising. After the defeat of the Barraki , Makuta Teridax began to develop thoughts of overthrowing the Great Spirit.
After gathering knowledge from Mutran , who had obtained it from Tren Krom , he proposed the idea to the rest of the Brotherhood, the majority of which sided with him. Five Makuta remained loyal to Miserix, however, and after defeating Miserix, Teridax ordered their deaths. Originally biomechanical, the Makuta race eventually evolved to a state of pure energy, in which they no longer had to eat, sleep, or breathe, and could not feel pain. Teridax ordered the Nynrah Ghosts to assist them by modifying their new armor.
Soon after, the Makuta made a collective decision to shun their inner light, becoming true creatures of shadow. Due to the threat posed to their new armor by Toa of Iron and Magnetism , Makuta began monitoring Matoran populations of those elements, and employed several Iron and Magnetism Toa in their guardian Toa Hagah teams, in order to keep them in check.
The Makuta began carrying out a master plot in attempt to overthrow the Great Spirit and claim power over the universe. In an attempt to rid himself of Makuta who might one day challenge him, Teridax ordered seven of his best warriors to enter Karda Nui upon its discovery.
During this time, the Phantoka Makuta took bat-like forms in order to frighten the Av-Matoran. To compensate, they chose three Shadow Matoran to join them and become their eyes, via telepathy. Antroz, leader of the team, later called upon Icarax to assist them in battle, and attempted to fight off the Toa Nuva. Gorast, Krika and Bitil searched the swamp for the Keystones, and also attempted to locate the Codrex.
The mutagenic swamp waters eventually affected the Brotherhood members in severe ways, locking them into their insectoid forms, restricting their use of Kraata Powers , and giving them other mutations.
The Order of Mata Nui , a secretive organization which had been keeping a close eye on the Makuta, eventually revealed their existence to the universe and initiated a war with the Brotherhood.
Miserix was freed as part of their early campaign efforts. Upon arriving at their destination, Teridax revealed to them his position as ruler of the universe, and cast a powerful illusion around Miserix, causing the former Brotherhood leader to believe he was a painting on the wall. He began using the remaining Makuta to produce Kraata for him, in order to keep his Rahkshi army plentiful, though he later killed all of them. Realizing that it was an alternate version of himself , he spoke to the Makuta, and transported three Shadow Takanuva to face him.
While there, he discovered the portrait of Miserix, and utilized his powers to free the Makuta from the illusion. Following a battle, Miserix, along with the others present, was teleported out of the Matoran Universe and into space. Before his Antidermis froze, he and the others were rescued by Vezon, who brought them all to the prison of a Great Being cursed by the Kanohi Ignika in Bota Magna. During the conflict, he attempted to destroy the planet by blasting it with gravity. Mata Nui was able to redirect the energy at the two moons of the shattered planet, drawing them closer to the larger planet.
The two continued to fight, until Mata Nui pushed his enemy into the path of one of the oncoming satellites. Each Makuta bore white armor, and spent long years meditating to get rid of all traces of darkness, doubt, and fear, after which they gained Elemental control of Light. Unlike in the core dimension, their Kraata powers include Telekinesis and do not include Darkness, Anger , or Fear. After a meeting with the Great Beings, Vultraz was taken away by the Great Beings to test why he was filled with darkness.
Mazeka was then transported back to the Matoran Universe, now accompanied by the alternate Teridax as instructed by the Great Beings to keep the balance between the two realities.
Spherus Magna Alternate Universe In another alternate universe, the Makuta species never rebelled against Mata Nui, and he completed his mission as planned. Once on Spherus Magna , some of the Makuta left the Mata Nui robot and went to the south, living in peace with the inhabitants of the planet. They then took command over the Skrall and worked to help the Agori.
The pair were honored by the Okotans , and each owned an Airship that they used to travel across the island. Makuta planned to rule over the Skull Raiders once he used his new mask to conquer all of Okoto. An early demonstration involved Makuta lending two new masks to a groundskeeper; one mask worked perfectly, causing a tree to instantly bear fruit, but the second mask caused the tree to burst into flames, terrifying the groundskeeper. Ekimu, who had been watching, realized that Makuta had combined two elements in his masks, which they had both vowed never to do. Ekimu rebuked Makuta for his rash actions, and Makuta promised not to combine two elements in a mask again. However, Makuta resolved to go even further than two elements and combine all six elements into a single mask: the Mask of Ultimate Power. To create it, he melted down his failed prototypes and recycled them, as well as stealing a set of six Elemental Crystals from his brother.
