|Chronological and political information|
Makuta Matata was created by a group of Great Beings obsessed with creating the "perfect species" as an upgraded design of the Makuta. However, the Great Beings realized that the power he had been given, that of reality, could pose a threat to them and the multiverse itself. They attempted to kill him before he learned to fully control his powers, but Matata escaped from Spherus Magna and left behind his creation of Energized Protodermis in vengeance, which ended up seeping through the surface of the planet and causing The Shattering.
He posed as a normal Makuta, but refused to fight in any conflicts, as he argued that beings fought in wars if they are affected by them, but that he could be affected by nothing. Most of the other Makuta left him alone, choosing not to disturb a being of such awesome power. He created a Toa team, the Toa Skeelax, for himself, but decided not to make them invincible for the fun of watching them struggle.
After killing the Toa Skeelax, he attacked Matata, but was quickly defeated and mutated into a hideous form. Matata, however, retained an interest in Charon, and continued to watch him over the years as he adopted the name "Nightwatcher."
Matata was at one point contacted by Tetrack, who asked him to interfere with Nightwatcher's latest bounty hunting mission, which Matata did gladly, throttling the hunter and inflicting the most possible pain that he could recover from.
He did not follow the other inhabitants of the Matoran Universe to the newly created Spherus Magna. He is currently in an unknown location.
