Kharis served under King Seti I, and had become an assassin for Seti before becoming his Chief Assassin. He had also studied the Egyptian version of the Book of the Dead under the guidance of Seti’s High Priest Imhotep. He quickly developed a friendship with him after Imhotep had become Seti’s Keeper of the Dead. As an assassin, Kharis would have kill enemies for both Seti and Imhotep. Because of this role and job title Imhotep had insured that Kharis if he was ever executed, killed, or died, Kharis would have been given supernatural powers after he was resurrected by the Egyptian’s Book of the Dead.
However their friendship suffered a turn for the worst when Imhotep was caught having an affair with Seti's mistress, Anck-su-namun, he was punished with an unholy curse: the Hom Dai. It had granted its victim immortality although endless suffering as he was still alive when the curse was place on him. He would be bound by sacred law to, if ever resurrected from his suspended animation, eat the flesh and organs of all who opened a chest containing the Book of the Dead and would have power over sand, water, and even manipulate the Ten Plagues of Egypt for his own uses. After the death of Imhotep, Kharis would try effortless to bring back his friend back from the dead, only to be stopped by the King’s guards and killed on sight. His body was then mummified and preserved in a tomb for the King’s assassins.

At the tell end of October of 2006, Kharis is awoken by five prominent members and key figureheads of the secret society known as the Illuminati.

His speed is at the point where he could catch up to a speeding car in mere seconds. And his healing is at the point where any wounds he receives, can close up in a matter of seconds.
- Psychokinesis / Mind Control
Kharis possesses two psionic powers, psychokinesis and mind control. He is able to move things, lift objects off the ground several inches, and tossed things into at a certain distance with just a motion of his hand. Under certain circumstances, he can control the minds of large groups of beings, wither they are human or insects, and make them do his bidding.

Immediately after he is resurrected his powers are weaker, he needs to consume the lives whoever opens the box containing the five sacred canopic jars; they store his internal organs in order to regenerate his form and powers. He is still vulnerable to certain ancient Egyptian spells contained within the Book of Life.
