Ire simply desired to destroy all life, but was defeated by a Domi Named Hellstorm, who after killing Ire was named the Domi King. Ire wasn't easy to defeat even by the Domi Hellstorm, Ire had ended thousands of civilizations before coming to the planet of his demise (Like a dumba$$ I forgot the planet name). Hellstorm was killed (along with Toa Kronus, and before him Toa Ragikii) and Ire was reborn, however he was weak until now. Now he has returned and has 3 Toa to fight. Toa Kronus, Toa Ragikii, and Toa Hydros, who were all reborn upon the release of Ire's new power. But there is another power existing that also poses a threat to Ire, and his name is Axonn.
