Ranaq
Real Name:
Search for 'Ranaq' on Amazon


Powers:
Ranaq is an other dimensional being of great power. A master of illusion and deception. However, Ranaq could not exist on this plane of reality without a human host.

Bio:
Ranaq, the Great Devourer, is a member of the pantheon of Great Beasts who were imprisoned long ago in their own dimension. Ranaq was able to break free at the beginning of the 20th century when a human, Zebediah Chase, forced a native mystic to breech the dimensional barrier. Ranaq then tricked Chase into becoming his new host. A time travelling contingent of Alpha Flight (Puck, Shaman, Snowbird and the newest member, Talisman) kept Ranaq busy until a young man, Lucas Stang, shot Chase with a bullet which contained a magickal item which disrupts magic. He then buried the body and was told that he would live a hundred years until he would once again face Ranaq.

After the 100 years passed an extremely elderly Lucas Stang faced Ranaq. Shaman and Elizabeth Twoyoungmen faced Ranaq in the form of Stang's great-granddaughter, Emily and were able to beat him. They then travelled 100 years back in time where they faced Ranaq until Lucas Stang shot the host body with a magickal bullet.
