Nuparu was an Onu-Matoran engineer who has invented many machines for Matorans' security. On Metru Nui he designed the Kralhi and Vahki enforcer robots, though the Kralhi was a spectacular failure (Toa Nuju once taunted Kralhi by calling them "Nuparu's folly").
On Mata Nui when the Bohrok flooded Onu-Koro, Nuparu discovered that they were non-living, and with Onepu's and Taipu's help he modified a Gahlok shell into a Boxor combat vehicle. Boxors were used successfully in the liberations of Onu-Koro and Le-Koro, but were defeated by Pahrak in Ga-Koro as they sink in water. After the Bohrok invasion he salvaged some Exo-Toa scrap to study, but hardly got the chance before he became the Toa Inika of Earth.
"Of all the Toa Inika, Nuparu has had his view of the world changed the most - because he now sees it from up among the birds! Having spent almost his whole life underground, he now has the power of flight and loves it. He has joined Matoro as the most effective scouts on the team, even if he isn't quite sure how to handle updrafts, downdrafts, and other hazards of flying. His inventive mind allows him to think of new ways to use his powers to stop the Piraka."
The Toa Inika will venture down to Mahri Nui and will be transformed into the Toa Mahri. Toa Mahri Nuparu will have a Cordak Blaster and an aqua blaster. At the Lego Press 2007 they gave a description of Toa Mahri Nuparu:
From out of the darkness swims Toa Nuparu to challenge the evil Barraki!His aqua blaster blades send shockwaves through the pit, while his shield protects him from attack. Fire the Cordak revolving blaster to drive off the fiercest enemy.
