Makuta Spiriah was a renegade Makuta who had been on the run from the Brotherhood of Makuta since an experiment on the island of Zakaz went horribly wrong.
Spiriah had Zyglak allies, as they were both outcasts. Spiriah had become a byword for "failure." Spiriah spent a lot of his life fleeing from his former comrades in the Brotherhood of Makuta. Spiriah believed that he was a victim of jealousy and prejudice.
When Spiriah was exiled, his Toa Hagah were transferred to other duties.
