Racta Magna is a small, fairly insignificant planet a short distance away from Spherus Magna. While not looked upon in high regards by the universe, it is considered a fairly conveniant Pit Stop for travellers, meaning that almost every known species in the Matoran Universe has stepped foot there once. Before renowned beings such as Toa Raxonax and Makuta Aroxion, Racta Magna was best known for being the home of a Toa named Trokan, who was extremely powerful and almost undefeated, before being transformed into a Turaga.
The first notable event concerning the inhabitants of Racta Magna was the days of “Shadowed Magna”, the first serious clash between the Makuta Sombrak and the Toa Racta. Little is known of how it started, or its precise events. All that is known is that during this time a Toa named Thorax transformed into Takathorax, the Toa of Light, and that this entity defeated the Sombrak leader, Makuta Aroxion.
Quite some time later, Toa Cilla warned Raxonax of a new threat; Shadonax, his evil duplicate, was threatening the peace. Raxonax set out to stop him. Although he failed, he met two new friends; Clank and Toa Galia. The two Toa eventually fell in love with each other, although the two soon separated (remaining as friends) because of personal issues.
Raxonax was later summoned by the Order of Mata Nui, to help deal with the returning threat of the Sombrak, whom had returned to torment the peoples of Racta Magna once more, though they agreed to step down after the killing of an enemy of theirs.
The Sombrak, however, later broke the truce when they attempted to steal the “Spear of Strength”, a powerful artifact, but were stopped by Toa Montu, who was also battling a Dark Hunter named Les Tenebres, who harboured a grudge against Montu, and also combating a parasite inside of him known only as "the Leech"
Meanwhile, upon discovering that Racta Magna held “the Gate”, a path from the world of the living to the world of the dead, Thanatos, the self styled “God of Death”, attempted to destroy the planet along with The Destroyer’s Three, and his “Cult of Thanatos”, a group of criminals lead by Nebulus. The Toa Racta intervened. After a long desperate struggle, Nebulus was killed, the Cult disbanded, and Thanatos and his demonic three were trapped inside Nebulus’ Black Hole Staff.
Not so long afterwards, a Toa of poison known as Raznor and his Vahki took over Racta Major, the capital of Racta Magna, and attempted to free Thanatos from the Black Hole Staff. However, his plan was foiled by Turaga Trokan and Toa Benu, who had been transformed into a Matoran by Raznor.
Trokan, whose condition is steadily worsening, has discovered a prophecy foreboding a final battle between the Toa Racta and The Sombrak.
