Not much was known of Dume's background but it was revealed that he was the Toa of Fire for thousands of years, during which he once fought against hostile Rahi and Dark Hunters. Over 17,000 years ago, Dume confronted the Kanohi Dragon when the Rahi first attacked Metru Nui and heroically defeated the dragon, thus saving Metru Nui. Some time within the next two years later, Dume became the Turaga and was appointed as the Turaga of Metru Nui. Four years later, Dume summoned the group of Toa called the Toa Mangai into Metru Nui and appointed them as the guardians of Metru Nui.
