The Shadowed One
Tohunga Professor

Tohunga Professor is nicknamed that way because he works as a professor and a leader in Tohunga Village. His past is shrouded in mystery.


Below is a quote from a Tohunga about Tohunga Professor:

"I... I don't know. See those Tohunga Mountains? Well, one day, long ago, we just heard an explosion from there. I saw a tiny flash of light there... the next thing we noticed was that a Matoran dropped in the middle of the village. Tohunga Professor. We asked him questions but he din't remember anything. His mind was a total blank. Many believed that he was sent by Mata Nui and he was made the leader. But I don't believe it. Something happened in the mountains, I don't know what."
―A Tohunga

That explained a little about his past. The Tohunga Professor became a leader and led the village wisely.

Return of the Enemies[]

When Aino and Iruini wandered and found Tohunga Village, Tohunga Professor promised them shortly afterwards to give them help. He sent a squad of most skilled fighters (Tohunga) to assist them. Later he led a war against the Fire Matoran that attacked the village. Even though the battle was won by the Tohunga, Tohunga Professor got kidnapped and escorted to Inwirn's Second Base. There he was questioned but after that he escaped with some Tohunga from the squad he had sent to help.

Later they helped to fight the Fire Matoran in the final battle. After that Tohunga Professor went home with his Tohunga.
