About this creation
Just after the time slip
A lone lime green and white toa gazed upon the island in front of him from the vantage point of a thin shiny dark green cliff .A deep rumbling sound was mixed by the cries of fleeing matoran and rahi . He saw numerous ruptures appear in the soft fertile ground .To any other being in the universe .The holes would have seemed to be created due to rahi movement ,bioquakes or subsidence due to erosion in the cave network below the island .But not to this toa .This toa saw the truth .He did not see any simple or ordinary situation .He saw the numerous ruptures which opened to large spherical vacuums just below the surface .Spheres of nothing created due to space warps being created by faults in the space time continuum .He had about five minutes until the spheres stopped appearing and other things took their place .
He had managed to get all but one of the native matoran away from the area without revealing his existence .It was a hard task that he hadn’t the time to reflect on .The last matoran ,a le matoran ,was just sucked into a sphere along with a Nhyros he tripped on by the spheres vacuum.The toa saw this happen . The matoran was lucky as the sphere was shallow but unlucky as it was connected to a larger sphere which drew him in to the dark bottom He realised it was dark only because it had not yet caved in .The ceiling rumbled violently and soil began to fall on his head .The Nhyros ducked it’s head and groaned in fright and the matoran pleaded to mata nui .The toa above ,a toa of space ,compacted space between him and the first cave to warp there .He would usually be able to detect the matoran’s whereabouts and the depth of the second cave so he could warp directly there easily .But the fact that many ruptures in the continuum had appeared confused his senses ,gave him a headache and prevented his concentration .He stepped through the compacted space and appeared in the first sphere .He looked quizzically into the hole between the sphere he was in and the larger,much darker sphere the matoran was in .He could not see through the darkness so he improvised and did something he never did before. He opened his right palm into a curve and using only a small fraction of his power allowed the rays of light hitting it to bend over it’s contours and form into a beam at the start of his wrist . This beam then widened and contracted due to his will and after a few moments he located the le-matoran he was looking for . Once found the matoran faced the light along with the Nhyros .He gazed upon the toa as the toa gazed upon him .The toa then faded from view and only the light beam remained.A moment later all the matoran saw was a pair of white and green legs .He jumped back and saw the toa stood in front of him .He said one word in awe .One word that the toa would later know as his name .An ancient word he saw on a tablet in a temple millennia before …”Luminok”
The word meant light bringer. And was only spoken in one region and heard of in the one temple the toa was in. How the matoran knew the word in such a far place from the region and temple was something the toa intended to find out. But he was busy bending space again to avoid the collapsing roof of the spherical cave.
Because the toa’s manipulation of the light beams was left unattended ,the beam was beginning to deteriorate as space healed itself .Now the matoran saw a strange sight his mind could barely comprehend .He saw the toa look up at the shaking roof of the cave .Then he saw it shrink and contract as he ,the Nhyros and the toa of space stood unaffected .The whole area around him twisted out of recognition until it became a hollow white cylinder touching the toa’s head and feet and only spanning quarter a bio long .Yet bridging the gap between a low cave and a high cliff .It was something that left him in awe and confusion of the toa’s unique powers over a fundamental part of the universe …
