Long ago, Piruk was sent to the realm of [[Karzahni (Location)|Karzahni]] along with hundreds of other Matoran, in order to be repaired due to some problem with his ability to work well. As he had grown weaker as a result of a poor repair job, Piruk had [[Shredder Claws]] attached to his hands to compensate. After that, [[Karzahni (Being)|Karzahni]] sent him to the [[Southern Continent]], but during the [[Great Cataclysm]], he was sent hurtling to the surface on the chunk of land that would become [[Voya Nui]].

Piruk spent a thousand years with the other Matoran of Voya Nui fighting for every day of survival before he found [[Zaktan]]'s [[Toa Canister|canister]] washed up on the beach. The [[Piraka]] did nothing to help the Matoran's poor nerves with his cold voice and strange, [[Protodite|shifting body]], and Piruk ran away, telling the Piraka he would get someone to help. As the Piraka took over the island, Piruk was then assigned with [[Balta]] to oversee teams digging out reservoirs to collect lava from [[Mount Valmai]]. After all but six of the Matoran had been enslaved, the newly formed Voya Nui Resistance Team - consisting of Piruk, Balta, [[Velika]], [[Dalu]], [[Garan]] and [[Kazi]] - decided to send Piruk into the [[Piraka Stronghold]], where he witnessed Zaktan in conversation with the contents of the [[Antidermis]] vat and then Zaktan attacking [[Avak]], who had disturbed him. Piruk returned to the group's [[Mountain Hideaway|hideout]] with this information. The Resistance Team then stole a [[Zamor|Zamor Sphere]] from [[Vezok]]. While the group was hiding waiting for Balta to return with the Zamor, they noticed the flashes of [[Ice]] and [[Fire]] which would soon be revealed as the [[Toa Nuva]] [[Battle Against the Piraka|fighting the Piraka]]. The Resistance team, without Balta, then did battle with the Toa Nuva, whom they did not trust, until Balta arrived and stopped the fighting, explaining that the Toa Nuva were not more Piraka. The Toa and Matoran then joined forces and headed for the Piraka Stronghold. Outside [[Tahu (Generation 1)|Tahu]] tried to burn the lock on the back door, when Piruk saw [[Reidak]] coming. The others hid while [[Lewa (Generation 1)|Lewa]] taunted Reidak until he accidentally punched the door down. Reidak ran inside and the group followed. Using their abilities the group reclaimed the Toa's [[Kanohi Nuva]] and [[Toa Tools|Tools]]. They then burst into the virus chamber where the [[Brutaka]] and five Piraka were. Brutaka then brought down all twelve heroes in a single attack, strengthened by the power of the Antidermis.

Piruk is a nervous Le-Matoran who acted as a spy for the Voya Nui Resistance Team.

Biography

Early life

Long ago, Piruk was sent to the realm of Karzahni along with hundreds of other Matoran, in order to be repaired. Karzahni's poor repair job made Piruk weaker, so he gave Piruk Shredder Claws attached to his hands[citation needed] to compensate. Karzahni then sent him and other "fixed" Matoran to the Southern Continent. During the Great Cataclysm, he was sent hurtling to the surface on the chunk of land that would become Voya Nui.[1]

Voya Nui

Piruk spent a thousand years with the other Matoran of Voya Nui, fighting for every day of survival. During this time, he tamed a Desert Burnak and took it as a pet.[VNOG, Ch. 3]

One day, Piruk found a canister washed up on the beach. Zaktan emerged and claimed to be a Toa here to help the Matoran. Piruk found Zaktan's cold voice and strange, shifting body disturbing and ran away, telling Zaktan he would get someone to help. Zaktan and his five comrades took over the island, and Piruk was assigned with Balta to oversee teams digging out reservoirs to collect lava from Mount Valmai. Zaktan's team then revealed themselves as Piraka and enslaved all but the newly formed Voya Nui Resistance Team - consisting of Piruk, Balta, Velika, Dalu, Garan and Kazi. The team sent Piruk to infiltrate the Piraka Stronghold, where he witnessed Zaktan speaking with the contents of the Antidermis vat and then attacking Avak, who had disturbed him. Piruk returned to the group's hideout with this information.

The Resistance Team then stole a Zamor Sphere from Vezok. While the group was hiding waiting for Balta to return with the Zamor, they noticed flashes of Ice and Fire which would soon be revealed as the Toa Nuva fighting the Piraka.[2] Distrustful of more "Toa," the team attacked the Toa Nuva until Balta arrived and stopped the fighting, explaining that the Toa Nuva were not more Piraka.The Toa and Matoran then joined forces and headed for the Piraka Stronghold. Outside, Piruk saw Reidak approaching while Tahu tried to burn the lock on the back door. The others hid while Lewa taunted Reidak until he accidentally punched the door down. Reidak ran inside, and the group followed. The Matoran and Toa reclaimed the Toa's Kanohi Nuva and Tools. They then burst into the virus chamber, where they found five of the Piraka and Brutaka. Brutaka then brought down all twelve heroes in a single attack.[1]

Piruk was interrogated with the others in the Chamber of Truth. They managed to escape and met up with the new Toa Inika. Together, they split up and headed in three teams to cure the infected Matoran of the Antidermis virus using Zamor Spheres filled with Energized Protodermis. Piruk went with Dalu, Jaller, and Hahli. They successfully cured several Matoran, and Piruk led them to safety.[3] When the Piraka and Brutaka attacked again, this time the Voya Nui Resistance Team separated and began to search for the Toa Nuva within the Piraka Stronghold. They found the Toa Nuva in a prison under the stronghold and freed them.[4]

Piruk and the other Matoran were later taken to the Nui Caves by Axonn for safety as the island of Voya Nui was submerged and returned to the Southern Continent by the Toa Mahri.[5]

After the death of Makuta Teridax and the debilitation of the Great Spirit Robot, Piruk and the rest of the denizens of the Matoran Universe immigrated to Spherus Magna.[OGDi: Apr 4 2010, 12:11 PM][OGDi: Apr 7 2010, 01:19 PM]

Piruk is also known to own a pet Desert Burnak.[VNOG, Ch. 3] The Burnak came with him into the Nui Caves and survived the descent of Voya Nui.[OGDi: Feb 4 2008, 12:10 AM]
