Phoenia Nui was a large city originally founded by a team of 10 Toa that had discovered it long ago.It sits on a large cliff between a stalagmite and stalactite that were formed by millions of years of dripping water from Nortre Nui's ocean above.It is split up into 12 different regions,or burrows.

Phoenia Nui was originally discovered by Nortre, the spirit that created Nortre Nui, but he abandoned it since the area seemed unstable.Later, a team of Toa, the Toa Phoenia, rediscovered it and built a city on the large cliff. They brought some Matoran with them and named the city "Stalagia", which meant in the Matoran language,"City of Stilts". The Toa each got their own region,or burrow,and named it. Two burrows went unclaimed and were simply called Northern and Southern Stalagia. The Toa later vanished without a trace, and the Matoran later named the city "Phoenia Nui" in honor of the great Toa team.Northern and Southern Stalagia became Northern and Southern Phoenia, yet the other burrows' names were kept. The cliff on which 10 of the burrows were located on became known as "The Hub" since it looked like a large wheel.

The Dark Times[]

When the Dark Times occurred,Phoenia Nui nearly got completely flooded.This resulted in some of this overflow water leaking into Nortre Nui,making the River Causs nearly reverse.The matoran were scared for their lives.When the Nui Orbs were created and the effects of the World Schism subsided,the matoran named the sea below them the "Abyssal Sea" since it seemed nearly bottomless.

The Great Cataclysm[]

When the Great Cataclysm occurred, the same thing happened, making the River Cause nearly reverse again. The city was devastated once more, and this time it drove all the matoran from Southern Phoenia. When the cataclysm subsided, they didn't go back.

  • It is believed that the Toa on the team that founded Phoenia Nui all wore a Pakari. This is why the symbol is one.
