We have discovered that Ekimu is an Evil Vampire.
- Ekimu's name starts with E, and has an i. This is shared with the word 'Evil'.
- Ekimu's name has an e, m, and i. This is shared with the word 'Vampire'.
- Ekimu was resting in a coffin for a very long time.
- Ekimu required elemental energy - he feeds on the elemental energy of other beings. He is currently 'discoloured' because he needs more energy, and has manipulated the Toa into giving him elemental energy.
- Makuta put his face in the sky to prevent Ekimu leaving his resting place, so that Ekimu may never terrorize Okoto.
- The Skull Skeletons are not controlled by Makuta or Ekimu - they answer to the Lord of Skull Spiders, who, conveniently for Ekimu, is not in close proximity.
- Makuta is the face in the sky. He has ascended beyond the need for a physical body. The Mask of Control allows him to control Ekimu's sleep... until his control was broken by Ekimu gaining more power from elemental energy.
- Most villagers on Okoto have been tricked into basically worshipping Ekimu.
Ekimu is now free to unleash his minions on Okoto... and unleash them, he did...
This is 100% foolproof and anyone that says otherwise is obviously one of Ekimu's minions.
