Chronom is Being Rewritten
- "True wisdom, my friend, is the ability to understand the world from multiple perspectives. To perceive the world from behind the mask of another gives one a better understanding of the other's situation. In the end, it does not matter if one is Toa, Glatorian, or any other being or beast; one's ability to empathize makes one superior. Thus, one who is truly superior accepts that they are in no way of higher stature than anyone else. That, my friend, is true wisdom."
Empire Alternate Universe
Chronom was originally a matoran scholar from Ba-Koro , with aspirations to Bio-chemist. At an early age, Chronom showed interest in numerous intellectual activities. He enjoyed chess, often competing in the annual inter-village tournaments that were held each year. Chronom also had a passion for poetry and literature, claiming to have read over 3,000 books in his time
As he grew older, his interest in the sciences grew profoundly. After attending a lecture hosted by his soon-to-be professor, the revered Mothgohl , Chronom decided to enroll in an intensive bio-chemistry course. Rising to the top of the class in a mere eight weeks, Chronom received a scholarship for the the Larvik Academy of Sciences, one of the most prestigious and respectable universities in all the Matoran universe. Enrolling in biology, chemistry, and physiology courses respectably, Chromon impressed all his mentors with is intellect and enthusiasm. After receiving his bachelor's degree, Chronom went on to study for a Ph.D in bio-chemistry under none other that Mothgohl.
Unfortunately, Chronom's Ph.D course was cut short, as the Great Cataclysm took place. During these events, the Larvik Academy was forced to evacuate as its buildings collapsed. Horthal, a toa whom had been Chronom's professor of physiology, was fatally injured by falling derby. Before death took him, he transferred his elemental powers in a piece of rubble, and handed it to Chronom. Chronom took the piece of rubble from his late professor, and held it before him. Instantly, Chronom's contorted as he became a toa. Realizing that his like had taken a significant turn, Chronom began to wander the lands, searching in vain, for the Order of Mata Nui, an organization that was said to be devoted to caring out the will of the great spirit Mata Nui.
Eventually, Chronom's wandering led him to Brutaka. Brutaka deduced, through a number of reliable clients, that Chronom had arrived on Voya Nui, seeking the Order of Mata Nui. Brutaka sought audience with Chronom, and after a long discussion, Brutaka agreed to bring the Toa of Gravity back to the Order of Mata Nui headquarters in ., an island that had formed as a result of the Great Cataclysm. Still having no idea to where he would find the Order of Mata Nui, Chronom settled on the island. There in the village of Ba-Koro, Chronom opened a school in which he taught a handful of scholars all he knew regarding the subjects of science, mathematics, and philosophy. Eventually, the school grew in size as it accumulated members. Eventually, the existence of this school, and the fact it was headed by a washed up Toa of Gravity reached the ears of an Order of Mata Nui warrior named
Order of Mata Nui
Upon arriving on the island of Daxia, Chronom received strenuous training in combat from bothand . After a year of training exercises, Chronom was made a full member of the organization devoted to carrying out the will of Mata Nui.

Shortly after the Template:Cannon were sent into the pit to retrieve the kanohi , Chronom received a mission of his own. The Order of Mata Nui sent him into the pit to track down, and capture the dreaded . After receiving a breathing apparatus, an cordak blaster, and a diving suit to protect him from the pit's mutegen, Chronom embarked on his mission to capture the mentally unstable warlord.
After several months of searching, Chronom finally found Karzahni confronting a band of somewhat foolhardy matoran. Chronom fired upon him with his cordak blaster, but to no avail. He then found himself experiencing painful shocks as Karzahni's electrified chains wrapped about his body. Realizing his life was in danger, Chronom summoned up his gravitational powers, and crushed Karzahni under tremendous pressure. Unfortunately, the effort left Chronom extremely exhausted, and Karzahni succeeded in escaping.
During the early years of Spherus Magna's reconstruction, Chronom embarked on a motorcycle journey that radically changed his views on the humanitarian rights of the glatorian and agori. He saw poverty and alienation in their society, and linked it to the ever-growing population of toa and matoran.
