Thousands of years ago, Egyptian Prince Khufu and his lover, came into contact with Nth (ninth) metal, an element from the planet Thanagar. Exposure to the extraterrestrial material imprinted racial memories from the alien Thanagarians onto the couple and combined with their true love, strengthened their souls and the bond between them.
Soon after their exposure to Nth metal, the lovers were murdered by Hath-Set, a corrupt priest of Anubis. Over subsequent, and mostly unrevealed lifetimes, Khufu and Chay-Ara were reborn again and again, destined to meet and fall in love.
In the middle of the 20th century, Khufu was reborn as the independently wealthy Carter Hall, who after handling an Egyptian knife, realized his true lineage and continued his quest for vengeance against his murderer Hath-Set, reborn as Anton Hastor. Utilizing the antigravity Nth metal to construct an anti-gravity belt and wing harness in tribute to the Egyptian hawk god Horus, he adopted ancient weapons of war, becoming Hawkman.
