Early Life

The first known event that involved Artakha after his creation was his battle with Karzahni for the Mask of Creation. Artakha this battle and the mask was given to him to wear.

The two beings were later given lands to rule over in the Matoran Universe. Artakha intended to make his land a refuge for Matoran where they would be safe.

Teridax's Reign

As Teridax took over the Matoran Universe, the island of Artakha was attacked by Rahkshi. During hte invasion, Toa Lewa arrived on the island seeking help. Artakha managed to telport him to Tren Krom, who took over his body and walked freely to Metru-Nui. Tren Krom arrived at the Core Processor again, an argument broke about regarding the fate of the Matoran Universe.
Tren Krom allied with Tuyet and Lewa, who wanted to stop them from harming the Matoran Universe while Axonn, Helryx and Miserix wanting to destroy Teridax by damaging the equipment. A brief battle then took place until Artaka appeared to stopped the fighting and managed to swap Tren Krom and Lewa back.
However, this attracted the attention of Teridax and he teleported the entire group into orbit around Aqua Magna while he used the Mata Nui Robot to transport himself away.
Rather than suffocate, Lewa managed to create several Air pockets to sustain them until Vezon had them teleported to Bota Magna by using the Olmak that was fused to his head. The team then encountered the Great Being who had been cursed by the Kanohi Ignika.
