The following is NOT canonized by the TTV. Anything listed serves as potential material for the TTV, if they ever want to use any of it. Anything they reject outright (assuming any of them read this) will be labeled Non-Canon.
However, the concept of the previous Toa sealing away the masks IS canon. This merely goes into possible details.
Additionally, this thread is inspired by @JediTimeLord824's First Toa thread, but has been altered to better fit canon and timeline.
The Toa Kanohi were chosen by the Elemental Gods (Nuva) to slay the Kanohi Dragon, overthrow the Barraki and the League of Six Kingdoms @AntrozT6, render the Kanohi Forges useless, and seal the Kanohi Masks away from the Matoran. The two latter duties would cause resentment towards the Toa and the Elemental Gods (Nuva).
Tahu (Lhikan, leader): adventurous thrill-seeker. Wielded twin greatswords due to his immense strength. Slew the Kanohi Dragon. Overthrew Kalmah @AntrozT6. Responsible for rendering the Kanohi Forges unusable. [Questionable but Cool: ancestor of Jaller].
