Ferrum was an inventive Matoran. Living on Xia, most of what he created was purely for combat. He, like Gringat attempted to design a law and order unit for Metru Nui, but the design was deemed too dangerous and destructive to be of any use. Instead, he marketed it to private buyers as a suitable Combat Drone.
As a member of a small time treasure hunting group that went on monthly explorations of some of the unsettled islands to the east, he found it was needed that he learned how to fight and defend himself from other matoran explorers and the Rahi of the islands. For a year, he spent a few hours a day learning and training with his long time friend, Torin. It never mattered how good Ferrum became when the two sparred though. Torin always won.
As time went on, Ferrum became more and more popular for his weapons and drones, receiving commissions for specialty weapons of many types. His favorite was 'Peace Maker', commissioned by the Dark Hunter Thel to be a modular weapon that could switch from a high voltage lightning caster to both an rpg launcher and a sniper rifle. He was paid well for it, and kept the non modular prototypes.
When he caught wind of troubles on the Isle of thorns, he left a few friends in charge of his store front on Xia while he moved part of his work shop and the commissions he had been working on to the island. He asked that any new commissions be forwarded to him while he was on the island. He planned to return home at some point but never got the chance.
Within two years of arriving on the Island, Thel came looking for him, baring the same offer he had given Torin, join his team and become a toa. He kept it to himself that he had manipulated the toa stones' energy to change any matoran he saw fit into a toa as well as making them more like draconic Hordika, so that he would not need to arrange a mission in which the chosen inductee would be captured and mutated by Visorak. Ferrum accepted the offer and became a bestial Toa of Earth. He requested that a Li Matoran, named Aurana, whom he had fallen in love with, be made a member of the team as well. She became the team's Toa of Lightning and was the last to be brought onto the team.
Present: Ferrum, Aurana and Torin are preparing a shock and awe campaign against the self proclaimed Hynak King of Sampa Minor. They have devised a plan that, outside of their highly trained Alpha Teams, no other member of the Resistance has been informed of. With luck, they'll pull it off without a hitch.
