Heru was once a nomadic Matoran of Density who lived all by himself high atop a grotto overlooking the Sekhem Plains, in the northwestern part of the Isle of Kemet Nui. As a necessity of living alone, he had become very skilled in the art of blending in with his surroundings and avoiding notice, though he could certainly handle himself quite well in a fight, if need be. A series of events thrust him into an unforeseen adventure that lead to his transformation into a Toa.


The Coming of the Neţeru

One for the Road

The Treatise of Åuset and Åusår

Dark Earth

In The Empire of Whenua Alternate Universe, the Uk-Matoran Heru was sadly killed by a cranky Vatuka that suddenly awoke one day in the back of his grotto. Shortly thereafter on Naming Day, a Ba-Matoran named Hār was given the name "Heru", in the late Matoran's honor, for his part in helping to save the life of several Av-Matoran.

Abilities & Traits

Heru is still a lone-wolf but he is now the Toa Neţeru of Density. His mastery over this Elemental Power grants him the ability to decrease his own density at will in order to enhance his speed, agility, or to pass through other solid matter by becoming momentarily intangible. He can also increase his own density to the point of becoming all but immune to harm from physical attacks though immobile. Furthermore, he can control the density of any object with which he is in physical contact with. Heru's skills are augmented by his Kanohi Huna, the Great Mask of Concealment, due to his ability to turn invisible, making him the perfect scout and an even better bodyguard, although he still casts a shadow. Heru is ambidextrous and chooses to utilize a lance and chain, as opposed to a more standard Toa Tool intended for channeling elemental energies, which he prefers to precisely disperse internally throughout his body as a whole.
