Atelvas are creatures created by Mata Nui to keep a record of time.


Atelvas were created by Mata Nui in order to keep a detailed record of time throughout the Matoran Universe.

When the Brotherhood of Makuta rebelled against Mata Nui and put him to sleep, the Makuta begin to pick off all the Atelvas within the Matoran Universe. This forced the entire species into hiding. Most of the Atelvas hide on islands throughout out the universe, and some joined organizations such as the Order of Mata Nui and Dark Hunters for protection.

Following the death of Teridax, the Atelvas abandoned the Matoran Universe for Spherus Magna.

Abilities and Traits[]

All Atelvas have great strength that can knock out almost any creature in one blow. They also have great speed and mobility, able to quickly move from left to right in the blink of an eye. They also have the power of limited teleportation.

All of the Atelvas are a silverish gray, and have ether lime green or orange eyes. They also have long tails and long claws.

Long horns grow off their heads, which help them focus their powers and can help them produce noises that can be heard for miles around. There is also a single horn that protrudes from the back of their heads, which varies in size depending on gender and age. Altevas possess teeth, which can inject many different poisons.

Within The Broken Order Universe, Atelvas were given slightly different powers. Instead of teleportation, Atelvas are capable of performing time jumps where they can leap ahead in time no more than a year. However, their leaps back in time are restricted to being no more than a minute backward, and they replace their past incarnations. No time paradox occurs when this happens, although the reason for this is yet to be determined.

In addition, the Atelvas were some of the first beings to map the Matoran Universe. Even now, their maps are widely regarded for both their accuracy and their efficient production.
