Gar was an Onu-Matoran and a Hydruka guard.
Gar originally lived in an unknown land, but at some point of his life there he was sent to the realm of Karzahni. Once there, he had to be fixed, but the ruler of the realm, Karzahni, rebuilt him wrong, and to compensate him he gave Reysa a pair of weapons. Gar, along with many Matoran, was later sent to the Southern Continent, as Karzahni was ashamed of his poor rebuilding skills.
After the Great Cataclysm, one portion of the central part of the southern continent, a region later called Voya Nui, rocked to the planet’s surface. Unfortunately, it carried Matoran with it. The matoran of Voya Nui, though having being fixed by Karzahni and having been lost on the land of doom, renewed their lives on the new island. Once, the mount Valmai started to erupt, sending rivers of molten rocks to the Voya Nui bay. With the time, the lava hardened and the matoran started to build a new village on the new portion of the island. But, due to Voya Nui’s instability, that new portion of the island sank in the waters, the inhabitants of the houses with it. Luckily, the portion of land landed on the fields of air, which created giant bubbles around the village, preventing the matoran to be mutated further by the Pit Mutagen. The matoran of the portion of land, which they named Mahri Nui, eventually lost the memories of their lives on Voya Nui.
While on Mahri-Nui, Gar did not do much. He was present at Defilak's first Council Meeting and he later accompanied Defilak, Sarda and Idris on their mission through the Pit. The team was caught by Pridak's army of Takea sharks and were held hostage. When they failed to tell Pridak of the Kanohi Ignika Pridak thrust Sarda out of the cave and into the sharks.
Luckily, Gar and Idris managed to escape back to Mahri-Nui and Gar was later taken back to the Southern Continent.
During Teridax's fight with Mata Nui on Bara Magna, the blows that Teridax received created various earthquakes, and these caused the majority of the Matoran Universe population to be evacuated in shelters. Thanks to this, after Teridax's head collided with Bota Magna, Gar and many other Matoran and other beings were able to survive. After Mata Nui defeated Teridax, he combined his powers with the Ignika in order to restore Spherus Magna to its past state. In the process, all beings affected by the Pit Mutagen were cured, including Gar. After that, he joined the mass exodus to escape the Matoran Universe, and he is currently residing at the reformed planet.
