The Chozo.. In thousand years of time, this birdlike race has booked enormous
technological and scientific progress. They traveled freely through
the space and left behind many wonderful buildings; technological
high-minded constructions and cities of a unexcelled beauty. They
shared their knowledge without needing something in return from
more primitive cultures, and learned to respect life in all of it's
Although their civilization reached a technological height, the Chozo felt
their spirituality draining away. Their culture leant strongly on predictions
and traditions, and at the same time with the rise of the evil they foresaw
the apocalypse for the Chozo.
Alarmed through the increasing violence in the universe they pulled themselves
back by which technologies subordinated and simplicity took over instead. Tallon
IV was one of the refuges. The Chozo built a colony there, by which they used
as little technology as possible, instead they used natural resources, in harmony
with the nature and her inhabitants.
Several calm years gone by until a large meteor struck Tallon IV. Through the
impact a large cloud of effervescent material spread out in the atmosphere,
through which the world became infected with the destroying element that was
named Phazon. This element immediately sank deeply in earth and water which
poisoned all the life. Most of the plants and animals died while others mutated
in horrible creatures.
The Chozo used all of their knowledge and technology to fight the toxic Phazon,
but their attempts were in vain. All that remained to be done was
to built a temple over the crater of the impact so the Phazon-core
became separated and sealed. The Chozo believed that on a day someone
would come to save the planet, and refuged to an unknown destination.
Their buildings on Tallon IV are the only quiet witnesses of the
Chozo-civilization which once bloomed on the surface of Tallon IV.

The Space Pirates were intergalactic nomads, technologic highly advanced, as
well in space traveling as in weapon knowledge. When the Galactic
Federation discovered a Metroid-population on SR388, the space pirates
recognized an enormous potential for energy sources and military
goals in the Metroids. They assaulted the nearby situated planet
Zebes without warning, by which they destroyed everything and everyone
on their way below, including the most of the native Chozo. Then
they built an extensive network of investigation facilities under
the surface of the planet.
In the depths of Zebes the Space Pirates did examine the Metroids
for a lot of years. In that same period a girl grew up. She lost
her parents during the attack of the Space Pirates on her home planet
K2L. She fulfilled a military training and got Chozo-blood administered
trough an infusion. When she fulfilled her training, Samus Aran
was wrapped in a Power-Suit that was made by the Chozo. This helped
her out in her battle against the Space Pirates, with it she even
succeeded in defeating the gigantic leaders of the pirates army.
Ridley and Kraid. At last she reached the core of their fortress,
where she destroyed all the Metroids that she met, and settled with
the Mother Brain.
The Space Pirates were not defeated completely. The survivors became divided
into two groups. One group stayed on Zebes to rebuild the destroyed
facilities and resurrect Mother Brain, Kraid and Ridley. The other
group went on a search for another planet which contained powerful
energy sources. It wasn't necessary to search long before they discovered
Tallon IV. Here large quantities of energy were generated by the
Phazon that still lays hidden under the temple of the Chozo. Attracted
through the enormous potential of this remarkable matter the Space
Pirates established themselves on Tallon IV. Their laboratory, transport
systems and life-support-systems got already a vast place in the
ruins that the Chozo had left behind.
To collect the Phazon from mines and experiment with it , the Space Pirates
found out that the mutation capacity of the Phazon was larger than that they
ever had fore seen, and shortly after they began the tests on native life forms.
It became a large-scale operation: their machines were driven with thermal engines
that had been sunken deeply in the inner depths of Tallon IV. They kept digging
deeper mine shafts and brought more and more Phazon to the surface. They shipped
the Phazon to the two most qualified laboratories in Phendrana Drifts, were
the very low temperatures made it safer to keep the matter. Fast progresses
where made in the investigation: through the power of Phazon they created unprecedented
The Space Pirates transported many of the creatures to their spacecraft, that
circled low around the orbit of Tallon IV, to continue their Zero G-Phazon experiments.
They didn't knew that Samus Aran finally located their ship. While they continued
their unnatural experiments, Samus flew to Tallon IV to exterminate the Space
Pirates once and for all...
