An important thing to note: this story is a follow-up to a short story entitled The Gargoyle Knight, which is essentially a prologue and might be worth reading. I’m trying to explain its events as I refer to them, but I don’t want to derail a whole chapter to repeat things I’ve already written out.
This story takes place in the Melding Universe. Rather than creating the Great Spirit Robot, the Great Beings instead created Matoran and Toa to fix Spherus Magna before it had the chance to shatter. Here, Toa are the small ones while Matoran are larger and physically stronger, and we’ve seen counterparts to existing characters such as Toa Macku and Helryx the Ga-Matoran. The Great Beings thus continued to rule over Spherus Magna as they used to long ago. At some point they created the Makuta, who purged themselves of all darkness and have gone on to become loyal and noble servants of the Great Beings’ will. It was visited in the official story when Mazeka and Vultraz ended up in it by accident, and in the end, Vultraz was taken captive by the Great Beings, meanwhile Mazeka was sent back to the prime reality along with the Melding Universe’s Teridax.
Beyond this point, we get into my personal take on the universe.
The Makuta possess power over Light, and many are assigned as leaders in important areas. They are far more involved with their respective domains than in the prime reality. Makuta do not produce Kraata, as the Great Beings saw no need for Infected Kanohi, and so spawn Rahkshi directly rather than requiring two Kraata and a pool of energized protodermis. There are 42 different Rahkshi powers a Makuta has access to. Some Makuta have also been able to develop unique abilities, thought to be a result of their Adaptation powers.
The Great Beings:
The unquestioned and beloved rulers of Spherus Magna. Though appearing as Glatorian, they are gifted with an extraordinary intelligence that has allowed them to craft many wonderful technologies that seem like magic to others. Their numbers include Heremus (considered to have the highest authority), Angonce (considered a man of the people), and Velika (considered something of a fanatic).
