|“||I believe in certainties. The strength of my limbs, the power of my mask, the sharp edges of my blades - that is what i build my plans around. Trickery, deception, complex strategies, they are for the weak! If you want power, and another has it, you get not by outwitting him - you get it by stepping over his corpse.||„|
|~ Icarax to Vican|
Icarax is a major antagonist in the BIONICLE series. Although he serves as the minor villain in the rest of the storyline, he eventually became the main antagonist of the 2008 storyline.
Approximately 100,000 years ago, Icarax and the other Makuta were created by the Great Beings, using the substance known as the Antidermis. He eventually became a member of the Brotherhood of Makuta as the organization began to come into being. He also serves as the general of the army of the Brotherhood of Makuta.
Shortly after the Destral fortress's construction was completed, Makuta Miserix sent Icarax, Mutran, and his servant Pridak to the island of Xia, for the purpose of ordering the Vortixx to charge lower prices for their goods. After several days of negotiation, Icarax then lost his temper and proceeded to destroy several buildings. As the result, the Vortixx hastily agreed to the Brotherhood's demands. Soon afterwards, he and Mutran were forced to drag Pridak from the island.
Later after few weeks after Pridak left the Brotherhood of Makuta's services and found the League of Six Kingdoms , Makuta Teridax and Icarax were presented in the meeting with the two members of the League of Six Kingdoms; Kalmah and Ehlek who have arrived into Destral. Kalmah told them that Pridak and the Barraki were about to take over several islands and he also ordered Teridax to sign on their contract. Teridax at first refused but when the Barraki threatened to destroy the Brotherhood of Makuta if they refused, Teridax immediately gave in and signed the contract then. After Kalmah and Ehlek left the scene, Teridax and Icarax then became suspicious of the Barraki's planning so they told Miserix about this and he ordered their another servant, Takadox to keep an eye on Pridak and the other Barraki.
Brotherhood of Makuta's Corruption
Invasion of Karda Nui
Icarax was serving as the forcing arms of Teridax while he was still unable to use a body, and was ordered to recolect various items for the Plan: such as the Staff of Arthaka. Icarax also found out the Great Mask of Shadows Teridax used with his own body, and decided to wear it.
When the Invasion began, Icarax was neglective about the following of the Plan and decided not to aid the other makuta, but after his superior, Antroz, ordered him to go to battle, he furiously went straight to Karda Nui, deciding to take action, but not for the Plan. Icarax was planning to sabotage the entire scheme of Teridax in order to depend no more of him and become the new leader of the Brotherhood, but when the time came, any of his other comarades seemed to aprove his idea and clashed against him. Taking down several Makuta, Icarax almost escaped his persecutors using his teleportation powers, but Gorast used his kanohi Felnas to turn his own power against him, which caused his body and antidermis essence to disperse to the atomic scale.
Icarax was very brutal, violent, dangerous, and exploitative, giving himself the aura of the executioner alongside Gorast. Even before the corruption of the Brotherhood of Makuta, Icarax doesn't care about the Matoran and view them as dependent and weak.
Icarax didn't hide his disgust and envy towards Teridax as a leader, since he clashed against him once, to no avail. He found savagery and desolation of entire villages as the ideal method of conquest and despised complex strategies which took time and preparation, but that didn't stop him of using a cunning and sharp mind to try to usurp Teridax's plan.
Like all Makuta, Icarax was also arrogant, egotistical, and overconfident.
