Razanj is matrilineally descended from the mythic / legendary Queen Medusa (c. 1000 BC), Libyan amazon, high-priestess of Auset (later of Athena in Libya, Spain and Italy), consort of King Poseidon, sovereign god of the African Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. As part and parcel of his lineage he is long-lived and has inherited a specific psionic / psychokinetic ability that enables him to manipulate and control his locs as prehensile limbs.

Legend: The legend has it it that before her assassination (decapitation) by Prince Perseus of Argos, son of princess Danae and grandson of King Acrisius. Queen Medusa served as a seemingly nigh-immortal, long-lived high-priestess of Austet in Libya with authority and reverence that extended to Spain and Ital. After her assassination, her descendants wandered the MMediterraneanand ended their travels in the Nile Valley, ultimately being lead to the stargate therein. They served as protectors and guardians of said stargate over the last 2 millenia (Courtesy of FWK Archives, 2011).
