Not much is known about Cothan and his team prior to their transformation into Turaga. It is known that as Toa, they functioned as heroes for hire, not truely having a home island before coming to Huna Nui. At some point in the past, they fought the Visorak swarm. It is unknown if they won that struggle or not.
Cothan and his team fulfilled their destiny on Huna Nui and gave up their power, becoming the island's Turaga. They have been lauded as some of the wisest Turaga the island has seen in a long time. They also pride themselves with being very open with their Matoran, though that is not to say that they tell them everything.
Cothan now lives in Ko-Huna amongst the Ko-Matoran of Huna Nui and is very close to his charges.
