|Leader||Vakama, Nokama (Deputy, Quartermaster)|
|Goal||Find the scattered Matoran Spheres|
|Parent organization||Toa Mangai|
The formation of the Toa Metru mostly mirrors the events that brought them together in the Core Universe, such as Lhikan's capture, Vakama's visions, etc.
Great FloodHowever, their history diverges at the point where Lhikan was killed by Makuta Teridax. Almost immediately after the Turaga was killed by the Makuta's Shadow Hand, the Great Barrier cracked open, releasing a huge rush of water. In a matter of hours, the entire Universe had become flooded, and Teridax escaped in the confusion. To make matters worse, the Toa Metru found that the Matoran Spheres they swore to transport safely had all scattered thanks to the giant flood.
Reconfiguring their damaged transport into a rather primitive ship, the Toa discovered that what society there was had deteriorated. The group was soon forced to adapt by becoming pirates. Despite this, some of the Matoran that still thrived in various areas of the new world maintained faith in the Toa Metru. As far as they knew, they were also the last remaining Toa Team.
As the Toa Metru went on with their search for the missing Matoran Spheres, they found opposition in the form of the newly founded Skakdi Kingdom, which was setting up colonies in areas that Matoran or other species were already inhabiting. The Kingdom began seeing the Toa Metru as a threat that can incite revolutions among those they had colonized upon and declared them enemies.
Under Admiral Nektann's command, the Toa Metru were cornered and captured except for Vakama, who managed to escape albeit maimed, and Matau, who was believed to be killed. The captured Toa were imprisoned separately and Vakama suffered a personality crisis in the aftermath of losing his team.

ShipThe Lhikan, named for the Toa of Fire that transformed them, is the Toa Metru's ship. The vessel was originally a triple-decker formed from Stone and plated in metal from the remains of the transporter the Toa had used in Metru Nui.
After being captured by the Skakdi Kingdom, Xian and Skakdi engineers renovated the ship to peak condition. Its hull was now red with golden trims, equipped with Cordak cannons on all decks, a ram, retractible masts that could be operated via pedals and levers, and improved armor.
