Dr. Peter Alraune

Search for 'Dr. Peter Alraune' on Amazon

Peter Alraune was an archaeologist and father to Marlene Alraune. Many years ago, Peter led an expedition to excavate the tomb of Pharaoh Seti II in the Valley of the Kings. After five years of digging, Alraune's efforts revealed a secret chamber containing vast riches and a statue of the Egyptian God of vengeance, Khonshu. During this time, a band of mercenaries led by Raul Bushman raided the area seeking to claim Alraune's treasures for themselves. Among Bushman's confederates were Jean-Paul Duchamp and Marc Spector. Unwilling to allow these mercenaries to plunder the tomb's riches, Peter picked up a golden dagger and tried to kill Bushman. Spector warned Bushman of the man's approach, and Bushman retaliated against Alraune, by biting through his neck with his sharpened steel teeth. As he laid dying, Peter begged Marc Spector to save his daughter, Marlene. Spector went to Marlene's tent and told her the news of her father. The callus death of Peter Alraune inspired Spector to rebel against Bushman, and set him on a course that would ultimately lead him to becoming the super-hero, Moon Knight.
