Raanu is an Agori, leader of the Fire Tribe, and also the current leader of the united tribes on Bara Magna.

Biography

On Spherus Magna, Raanu was employed in the fortress of the Element Lord of Fire. After the Core War broke out, Raanu was approached by an emissary of the Great Beings, who had come asking him to do a service. Distraught over the devastation the war was causing, Raanu agreed, and journeyed with another Agori to collect a sample of Energized Protodermis for the Great Beings.

Toward the end of the war, when the Great Beings began releasing the Baterra, Raanu was the first Agori to see one of them. He was also one of the first to see the Mata Nui robot being built.

During the Battle of Iron Canyon, Raanu served as support staff for the Fire army, and when the Shattering occurred, he was left trapped on Bara Magna. He soon came to live in the village of Vulcanus, which was in turmoil at the time. Many residents had fled into the wastes, though others stayed hidden in what was left of their homes. Raanu helped organize rebuilding efforts, and suggested that the village's lava flow could be used for repairing metal tools and weapons.

When the veteran warrior Certavus proposed a system of Arena Matches to settle disputes between villages, Raanu declared his support for the idea. This, along with his other services to the village, led to his election as village leader when the previous elder was slain by Vorox.

After the secondary Glatorian, Malum, attempted to kill his opponent in an arena match, Raanu was forced to exile him. After the exile, Raanu found himself in a desperate search for a replacement Glatorian to fight for his tribe. The Skrall took advantage of their inability to claim resources, conquering the flame geysers north of his village. Unable to challenge them, he beseeched Metus to find him a Glatorian to do battle for the territory. Metus informed Raanu that no Glatorian would fight for him it meant fighting a Skrall.

As his village suffered from daily Bone Hunter raids, and knowing that the village would be undefended if Ackar were traveling to a match, Raanu turned to a helpful Agori to seek out Malum and ask him to return to defend the village. Malum was unwilling to return, but he instructed the Agori on a way to unleash the Vorox on the Bone Hunters, distracting them and temporarily alleviating the raids on Vulcanus. Raanu was awed by the courage shown by the Agori and rewarded him with an Honor Badge to let all know of his deeds. The leader then sent him to Tesara to seek out both Tarduk and the Glatorian Gresh, to see if they might have a way to save Vulcanus. The Agori later returned with a document that contracted several Glatorian to defend the village from the Hunters. Raanu praised him for his efforts and gave him the highest Honor Badge available as way of thanks.

A caravan containing supplies won by Vulcanus never arrived in the village, and Raanu was worried by its absence, as it was a threat to the social system. He discussed the event with Metus, who had organized the convoy, and warned him what would happen if the payment didn't arrive. Ackar calmed his leader, and convinced him to wait while he searched for the convoy.

Raanu fleeing Atero

Raanu traveled to Atero in order to watch the Great Tournament. After conversing with Berix and Metus, the Agori decided to travel outside the city, to see if any Skrall were approaching. They were met by a large army of the Rock Tribe, who were traveling towards the arena. Raanu left his friends and ran back to the Arena Magna to warn the competitors of the army's attack. As the Glatorian left to combat the Skrall, Raanu assisted in evacuating the city, sending the Agori back to their villages. A Skrall attacked him, but was stopped by Gresh, who let the Agori escape. Raanu later reunited with several Glatorian and Agori, and they discussed fighting the Skrall.

When Raanu entered Vulcanus' inn, he was confronted by Gelu, who showed him a detailed map of Vulcanus, one that he took from Fero. Raanu was extremely worried by the news, and was torn between making a stand, and fleeing to preserve the lives of the villagers. Gresh convinced Raanu to make a stand, and Ackar agreed to head the efforts. He ordered two of his rookie Glatorian to go to Tajun, and recruit Kiina and Tarix.

All the Glatorian rode out to find help, and Raanu stayed behind to help fortify the village. Kiina arrived soon after, and rebuked Raanu, as his warriors had died before delivering the message. Raanu continued to make the necessary preparations in the village as more Glatorian arrived.

After the Bone Hunters arrived, they were seemingly driven off by the traps set. Upon hearing from Gresh that the Bone Hunters were riding far away, Raanu dismissed the Glatorian, and allowed them to return to their village. The Glatorian insisted on staying behind, in case the Bone Hunters returned. Raanu disagreed, and ordered the Glatorian to leave. Raanu approached Metus before he left, and pleaded for the Ice Agori to find him new Glatorian. The Fire Tribe elder promised Metus various royalties for the task, including a match between Ackar and Strakk.

The Bone Hunters later returned and assaulted Vulcanus. As Ackar fended them off, the other Glatorian arrived, and succeeded in defeating the Hunters. Raanu checked the health of the villagers, and thanked the Glatorian for their help.

While observing an arena match between Strakk and Ackar, Raanu was approached by Metus, who was accompanied by Mata Nui. Raanu spoke with Mata Nui about how Ackar had lost the will to fight, and assumed that Metus had brought Mata Nui to replace Ackar.

Raanu later traveled to Tesara to watch a match between Tarix and Vastus. Ackar, Mata Nui, Kiina, and Gresh arrived, informing the Agori and Glatorian at the village of the Attack on Tajun. When Ackar called for an end to the arena match system, Raanu protested, and told the villagers to trust their leaders. Ackar displayed his new Fire abilities to quiet the crowd, and informed them that Mata Nui would be willing to help them. Raanu questioned the trustworthiness of the newcomer, and Ackar had Mata Nui transform Tarix's weapon as proof. In response to the impressive feat, Raanu asked the Glatorian to swear their allegiance, to avoid future confrontation.

When the village pieces were unified to become a Mega-Village, the various leaders of the different tribes formed an advising council, the Council of Ages, and named Raanu as leader of the city.

Mata Nui, upon returning from his journey to the Valley of the Maze, returned with a power source, and revealed that the Mega-Village was actually a robot constructed by the Great Beings. He requested the use of the robot to defend them from an impending evil, but Raanu vehemently refused to allow Mata Nui to disrupt their new area of living. After a lengthy argument, Raanu submitted to Mata Nui's need, and Mata Nui powered the robot and possessed it with his spirit.
