Welcome to the Cult of Candlehead! We are pleased that you decided to join!
The Cult of Candleheads began when the Matoran first inhabited Mata Nui and the Onu-Matoran had not yet found the lightstones. We used the fat from dead rahi—following the ritual for doing so—and nectar from the flowers of Ga-Wahi to create our Candles, which were affixed to our masks with the Wax. These we used to light our way until we found the ever-important lightstones.
Now, the Candle is revered, for Mata Nui provided us with everything to create the Candles so we could find the long-lasting lightstones, so the Cult of Candlehead is our way of praising Mata Nui for Candles and his Generosity. And Candles!
While it is a sacred symbol, the Candle is still an important part of everyday life. More than half the Onu-Matoran population (plus some Po-Matoran) are members of the Cult of Candleheads, and since most Onu-Matoran are miners, there will always be one member present in a team in case they run out of lightstones, thereby using Mata Nui’s gift to us.
The induction ceremony is in three days’ time. Initiation includes the Grafting of a sacred Candle to the inductee’s mask using the Holy Wax and the chanting of some initiation prayers.
Since the beginning of time, the Ko-Koronans have isolated themselves to participate in the Seeking. In the Seeking, we strive to solve the Mysteries of the universe and the finding of new Prophecies through introspection and meditation. From our introspection and meditation, we hope to also divine why Mata Nui placed us on this island and our Purpose in life.
Acolytes must be able to be quiet and stand still. Know mediation is not required, as it can be taught. No loud noises are permitted unless they are a bodily function, such as sneezing.
Induction will be the day after enough Matoran are gathered. Please be clean and enter the Sanctum quietly. The details of the Initiation are sacred to the Ko-Koronans, and as such, they will not be described here.
The Seeking is for Ko-Koronans only. Some Ga-Matoran may be permitted on a case-by-case basis. Maku, stop asking.
