Prior to becoming a (wrongfully) wanted criminal. Kerma was just an ordinary Ta-Skrallian that worked on hovercrafts and podarails that were broken down. In his spare time, he made masks (his noticible mask creation is the Kakamiru that Henry wears in The Adventure Squad). Over time however, Kerma became a full time mask maker. Prompting him to change his Mechanic Shop into a mask making one. And hired several matoran to help.
The Mask Making Years
Durring his mask making years, Kerma was contacted by Hapori Kento, the leader of the island to make a new mask for him. Kerma abliged and made several masks, one of which became Kento's final (and most powerful) mask. Kerma was also featured in several newspapers and shows by this time, making him the most popular matoran in Skrall until...

|One month after Kerma made Kento's mask, The Vahki Squadron of Skrall assassinated him. Much to the shock of the island. The Squadron blamed Kerma for making a faulty mask that caused him to die. Though while the population knew what really happened, they were too frightened to be killed themselves and decided to go along with this accusation. Kerma was placed on trial and was sentenced to death by Gavlin himself. Kerma escaped it by tricking Gavlin. He has been on the run since.|
The Vahki Resistence
In the series
Originally in the first version of the series, Kerma was portrayed as a two shade Chimoru Omega sprite. The character also didn't have the backstory that is featured in the reboot. Kerma was instead going to be the sucessor of The Chosen One as James T. Piehon stated and was to have The Rainbow Army as his enemy instead of Gavlin and his Vahki Generals. If the original series was to continue to progress, Kerma would have unlocked the powers that were hidden in himself.
In a remade version that wasn't completed, Kerma was still to have the Rainbow Army as his enemy, but the present plotline began to take shape. As Kerma was on the run and was taken by The Vahki Brothers to join the Resistance. His Backstory was almost exactly like the present one, only it wasn't to be explained until a later date and was to just focus on Kerma's recrutment to the Resistance. However, due to technical glitches, this remake went nowhere and was scrapped.
Kerma was also to make a fairly major appearance in Project Unlikely, in which The Rainbow Army, as well as Sir Pickles, Gunnar, The Army of Darkness and many other villans attacked Skrall. He and Noob Michel were captured and placed into a cell with Philipnova798 and Nuparurocks. Unfortunately, due to the topic's closing, the saga was never continued.
