● In a color Canon copier, what is the purpose of the starter or developer?

The purpose is to transfer the toner particles from the toner hopper to the surface of the drum, some brands even call the developer “carrier”. Developer are fine metal particles that cling to the magnet roller in the developer unit. As the magnet roller turns, the toner mixes with developer and is pushed against the drum.
