Nilkuu is the Protector of Stone and the elder of the villagers who resided in the desert region of Okoto.


Nilkuu inherited the position of defending a village in Okoto's Region of Stone from his father. He was also told of the Prophecy of Heroes, which his ancestors had learned from the Mask Maker Ekimu after his battle with Makuta, to be recited in times of peril.

Eventually, Skull Spiders began to menace Okoto, and Nilkuu set out to join his fellow Protectors and recite the Prophecy. During this time, he met a young islander named Bingzak, who helped accompany him to the Temple of Time when Nilkuu was lost in the Region of Jungle. When the stars aligned, as foretold by the Prophecy of Heroes, Nilkuu joined the other Protectors at the temple and recited the Prophecy. Nilkuu returned to his region with Bingzak, waiting until six Toa fell from the sky onto Okoto.

Nilkuu sought out Pohatu, and guided him through the Region of Stone for weeks to a temple where the Golden Mask of Stone was hidden. At the temple, Nilkuu held off a horde of Skull Spiders and was nearly overpowered, but Pohatu used the Golden Mask to overcome the Skull Spiders. Nilkuu then advised him to travel to the City of the Mask Makers to join with the other Toa, parting ways with him when it came time for Pohatu to cross a mountain range.

In response to a summons from Protector of Jungle Vizuna, Nilkuu joined the Protectors again, this time at the City of the Mask Makers, in order to lend aid to the Toa. Making their way into the city through an alternate route, the Protectors found themselves in the underbelly of the ruined metropolis. While there they battled hundreds of Skull Spiders, but were befriended-Nilkuu in particular-by a massive snake whom they freed from the evil creatures. They then entered the city and eventually found the Toa, and soon bowed before Ekimu, fulfilling a prophecy they had seen carved beneath the city.
