What if Okoto is really Daxia, with the City of the Mask Maker being the Order's base, but abandoned so it could be used in the training. Perhaps the Toa's quest is really just training. The Skull Spiders and LOSS are beings created by the Order to serve as enemies for the Toa to train against, and so are the Skull enemies. Throughout the many Bionicle Shorts taking place on Okoto, there has been a kanohi Vahi hidden through out. If I am correct, it was never truly said HOW long ago the Toa Mata were trained and how long they were in the canisters before being called upon. For all we know, Okoto is what Daxia looked like, perhaps chunks of it fell into the ocean later on throughout time. Ekimu might actually be Hydraxon, the Toa's trainer, in disguise, and the Protectors might be other members of the Order. Sure, that could be disproven as there are also non-Protector villagers on Okto, and Order wasn't so big so they surely couldn't be diguised. But, if you've noticed, the Toa don't really run into any villagers. The only time we see them is when the Toa hadn't landed on Okoto. They don't know that they are merely being trained.
So, what do you think of my theory?
