The planet Maarin was originally populated by an organic, humanoid race in the Milky Way galaxy, which built the robotic Mekkans as servants and covered the planet in metal. Mekkans were used to terraform the entire planet with metal and artificial plants. The artificial plants were vulnerable to a virus that killed all of the plant life, destroying the air supply and killing all the humanoid inhabitants, the Maarin. The only remaining sentient beings on the planet were the Mekkans, who renamed the planet Mekka. The Mekkans made Torgo the leader of Mekka ("first among equals").
