Teridax's takeover

Hello Mr. Farshtey, I hope you’re well. I was just wondering if you could answer a question I’ve had in my mind for quite some time.

In an old Bzpower topic in 2008, you stated that Teridax taking over Mata Nui’s body had been planned from the very beginning. However, this seems a bit odd to me considering his character went through a few changes during Bionicle’s run and it’s even been stated elsewhere that originally he was to have good intentions beneath his bad actions. So I would just like to ask whether the takeover really was planned from the beginning, and if not, when was that conceived of?


Teridax had it planned from the beginning. We didn’t. That plot twist didn’t come into play until the decision got made to wake up Mata Nui, which would probably have been 2007 sometime.
