Botar was a member of the Order of Mata Nui.
Botar was a member of a savage race of the southern islands. Botar saw the world in terms of pure good and pure evil. His duty was to transport individuals beyond redemption to the Pit for eternal imprisonment. He would do this by teleporting to the target's side and then dropping them off in the Pit. Botar was utterly committed to his job, with a single-minded devotion to justice and punishment and a total unwillingness to compromise. Although he was not physically more powerful than other Order members, his zeal and long record of success intimidated even loyal members of the Order. Merely mentioning his name was enough to dissuade most potential traitors among the ranks.
Botar had a natural immunity to the mutagenic properties of the waters of the Pit.
Botar was tasked with teleporting condemned individuals to the Pit. He brought the six Barraki and many others to the Pit.
Botar had an uncanny talent for knowing whom to teleport and when.
Botar was not a member of the Hand of Artakha.
Botar was revived on the Red Star after his death. It is not known why he did not simply teleport back to the Matoran universe with his own power. He may have teleported somewhere else in the Matoran universe where he was not seen, or he may have been so confused by the experience of dying and coming back that he did not know where he was and was not focused on getting back.
