The location of Ko-Koro was chosen by Toa Nuju after the events of the Great Cataclysm, when the Ko-Matoran were awakened by the Turaga. The Ko-Matoran, led by Nuju, traveled midwest until arriving on Mount Ihu and founding a village near its peak.
Quest for the MasksEdit
After a year of peace on Mata Nui, the village began suffering from Teridax's infected Rahi attacks. The constant harassment continued for many centuries. However, the Ko-Matoran were able to defend themselves from the Rahi until the arrival of the Toa Mata. Toa Kopaka soon arrived in the village and went into Mangaia with the other Toa Mata to fight Teridax. The Rahi attacks ceased after his defeat.
When the Bohrok swarms were awakened by Teridax, a swarm of Tahnok arrived in Ko-Koro, partially destroying it. After the war, however, the damaged section of Ko-Koro was reconstructed.
Ko-Koro was partially damaged by the Rahkshi as they were searching for the Kanohi Avohkii and the Herald of the Seventh Toa. After the defeat of Makuta Teridax and Metru Nui was rediscovered, the Ko-Matoran departed, leaving Ko-Koro abandoned.
Ko-Koro was located in the forbidding landscape of Ko-Wahi, where it was hidden beneath an enormous chunk of solid ice that separated two glaciers and surrounded by large crevasses. The village itself had a single gate facing a massive crevasse, which was guarded at all times by the Sanctum Guard. The only other known entrance was a tunnel that led from the Sanctum to the Drifts, also called the Wastes by the Matoran. Inside the village, the Matoran lived in either huts built of ice on the ground, or in rooms carved into the glaciers that surrounded the village.
Ko-Koro has the same pronunciation and almost exact same spelling as "Kokoro (心)", a japanese word for "heart", which may have been unintentional, given that the "Ko" prefix means "ice"
