Xalos was captain of the militia on the island of Poliaz, under Vanembar, the general. He devoted much of his time to tracking down criminals within the city, rather than guarding. A better title would have been chief detective if such a title existed. He disliked Vanembar, beliving his methods were far too militaristic- he was a bit of a breakaway. And the job has forced him to make a lot of harsh decisions. In fact, this song fits his feelings for Vanembar rather well:
((This theme still applies when He becoems a Toa, and Elemental Lord. I'll try to give remixes of it when I remix Xalos himself :) )
Xalos met Gringat during a gang war. Gringat had been dragged into it, his weaon and robot schematics stolen by a gang intent on destroying another. Gringat had foolishly gotten involved with the other side, trying to exact revenge. While there, he had come under a lot of bad influences, commiting a series of petty crimes, and becoming addicted to a particularly nasty drug called "weld", made from Morbuzakh berries.
After a lot of complex negotiations, Gringat was freed, and paid his time. Somehow through all this, he and Xalos had befriended one another, and Gringat from then on devoted his time to helping the Guard, using his inventions to help fortify the island. Some of them are still in use in the Destiny War.
When Vanembar put forth the call for heroes, Xalos was one of the first to volunteer, and the first successful toa ot go into the team. Gringat also managed to make it through, along with a few others.
Xalos wore a scoped mask, for detailed forensic examination, and an ice axe for when duty called him to defend his home. The cable on the axe runs to a chilled pack on his back, giving the axe almost as much frosty punch as a toa of ice's. He also wore his ceremonial armour while at work.
Here he is with Gringat (V1. After his arms broke, I made better ones :D)
--I figured it was about time I came up with my own matoran design. Here it is. :)

If i may, you should make a Beast Xalos, sorta like a timberwolf, only cooler and with wicked fangs that he has to turn into after being kidnapped so there are chains aroung his legs (CoughtottallynotrippingoffZelda: Twilight PrincessCough). Just a thought... <_<
