Character History

Graphic Novel:History of a Secret

In a dream, Abu Aswan watches his ancient ancestor, Pharaoh Khufu, preside over the building of the Great Pyramid of Giza. When one of Khufu's kin levitates an enormous building brick, Khufu orders that man be stoned. Khufu forbade anyone from revealing the secret ability of his lineage.

Heroes Evolutions

The repository at contains a page about Khufu. It discusses how "history has, perhaps unfairly, painted Khufu as a cruel leader," though he was able to realize his vision in building great pyramids. According to legend, Khufu's father, King Sneferu, was responsible for teaching Khufu to build pyramids, though "rumors whispered throughout ancient Egypt hinted that Khufu was a great sorcerer with otherworldly powers used to construct his massive projects." He is noted as a hero because of his persistence, steadfast determination, and unflagging devotion to his vision of building the Great Pyramid. The undertaking lasted for a span of twenty years over Khufu's 23-year reign over Egypt.

Evolved Human Abilities

Khufu had the ability to levitate and move heavy objects. He used this ability to help build the pyramids, though he forbade anyone from making the secret ability public.


  • Khufu and the unnamed member of his kin who levitated a stone block are the earliest known evolved humans.
