Khufu was a Pharaoh in ancient Egypt.
In a dream, Abu Aswan watches his ancient ancestor, Pharaoh Khufu, preside over the building of the Great Pyramid of Giza. When one of Khufu's kin levitates an enormous building brick, Khufu orders that man be stoned. Khufu forbade anyone from revealing the secret ability of his lineage.
The repository at yamagatofellowship.org contains a page about Khufu. It discusses how "history has, perhaps unfairly, painted Khufu as a cruel leader," though he was able to realize his vision in building great pyramids. According to legend, Khufu's father, King Sneferu, was responsible for teaching Khufu to build pyramids, though "rumors whispered throughout ancient Egypt hinted that Khufu was a great sorcerer with otherworldly powers used to construct his massive projects." He is noted as a hero because of his persistence, steadfast determination, and unflagging devotion to his vision of building the Great Pyramid. The undertaking lasted for a span of twenty years over Khufu's 23-year reign over Egypt.
