The Librarian is a Toa of Sonics and Order of Mata Nui agent whose sole responsibility is to keep track of records and artifacts collected by the Order. His Kanohi Rau, Mask of Translation, allows him to read foreign languages that some of these relics are written in. He carries a large, two-bladed sword and multi-layer shield (both made of protosteel) to defend the antiques under his care, should they come under attack.
