Brander in Metru Nui

Not much is known about Brander's past on Metru Nui. He helped Toa Metru Vakama to find Nuhrii while he was looking for the Great Disks.

Later Brander was summoned to the Coliseum with the rest of the Matoran. There he was stuffed into a Matoran Sphere and taken away, under the Coliseum. The Toa Metru later rescued him, they took his Sphere along with the others and placed it into an Airship which took the Spheres to Mata Nui. Once there, the Toa Metru sacrificed their Toa Power to awaken Brander and the other Matoran. Gradually, Brander lost his memory about the past and became shorter and weaker because of the effect of the sphere he was in.

Mata Nui[]


Brander after The Rebuilding

Brander became a Member of the Ta-Koro Guard on Mata Nui. After the defeat of the Bohrok-Kal, Brander was summoned to the Kini-Nui by the Turaga for a Naming Day ceremony. There, Brander was rebuilt into a taller, stronger form by the Turaga like the other Matoran. He continued his job as a guard member and spoke briefly to Hahli about his job. When Ta-Koro was destroyed by the Rahkshi, Brander was evacuated from there like the rest of the Matoran.

Return to Metru Nui[]

He then returned to Metru Nui along with the Toa Nuva, Turaga and the other Matoran. He helped to rebuild it until the Staff of Artakha was used to repair the rest of the city. He also took part in the ceremonial held for Matoro in the Coliseum.

Spherus Magna[]

After the Battle of Bara Magna and the death of Makuta Teridax at the hands of Mata Nui, Brander evacuated the heavily damaged Great Spirit Robot along with the other Matoran and migrated to the newly-reformed planet of Spherus Magna. He later moved with the other Ta-Matoran and the Fire Tribe to the inside of the Great Volcano.

Powers and Abilities[]

As with all Ta-Matoran, Brander possessed inaccessible Elemental Fire powers; this manifested in the form of a natural resistance to heat and fire.
