Okoto is a large island in the Great Sea.

History

When Okoto was first formed, several Elemental Creatures were known to have brought the six elements to Okoto. At the center of the island, where all six elements converged into one form, Umarak came into being. This led to the creation of a sacred mask maker law.

Long ago, Okoto and its Islanders enjoyed a time of peace. It was also home to two brothers, Ekimu and Makuta, the Maskmakers. the brothers obeyed a sacred law to never include more than one power in each mask, as the results would make it dangerous. Ekimu's masks were praised for their craftsmanship and were sought by many in Okoto.

However, Makuta became jealous, as he was overshadowed by his brother, defying a sacred rule to only allow one power per mask, Makuta forged the Mask of Ultimate Power. He had replaced his Mask of Control, with his new creation. But then, the mask's powers corrupted him, warping him from a gold and bright purple to a red and black, the island also began to degrade as well. Ekimu confronted his brother, knocking the Mask of Control off and creating a shockwave that spread across the island. And as a result, both brothers were put into a coma, causing the masks they created, including their Masks of Creation and Control, to be scattered across the island. It is unknown what became of Makuta's body, however Ekimu's was recovered by the Protectors, who then heard the Prophecy of Heroes whispered to them, foretelling of heroes coming in a time of darkness.

Thousands of years later, Skull Spiders attacked the villages of Okoto. Enacting the prophecy, the Protectors summoned the Toa, who fell from the skies. And when each Toa had found their golden mask within the wilds Okoto, they met each other at the entrance of The City of The Mask Makers. And together they defeated the Lord of The Skull Spiders, who guarded the City's entrance. After the battle, they were contacted by Ekimu to go forth, and awaken him from his slumber.
