Shnā was created by the Great Beings and tasked with helping in the construction of the Great Spirit Mata Nui. Along with the other Av-Matoran, he labored in darkness to create the islands and locations of the Matoran Universe. After this duty was completed, the Av-Matoran were tasked with the preparation of the universe core, Karda Nui for the Great Spirit's awakening. When the Av-Matoran suffered attacks from the lightning-like Avohkah, the Toa Mata were summoned to protect them. Shnā later returned to his homeland in the caves below the Southern Continent before migrating elsewhere along with a few other villagers.
Shnā is now a seasoned warrior and Meti's best friend.
In The Empire of Whenua Alternate Universe, the Wha-Matoran Ånpu sacrificed his own life to defend several Av-Matoran, including Shnā, from a menacing Serqet-Jaga. The numerous Matoran of Light were finally rescued by another group of villagers consisting of Åsår, Hār, Inpu, Neb-hut, Setekh, and others.
Abilities & TraitsEdit

He can furthermore access an unknown secondary power while in physical contact with a Toa or Makuta, as well as having the capacity to share his memories with them.
