Even though there are three other children listed for Khufu here, as well as a number of grandchildren, I'm only listing those individuals whose names actually appear in the genealogical chart in History of a Secret. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 13:03, 5 February 2008 (EST)

I guess we have a new first evolved human! PsilaqTalk to me 15:36, 5 February, 2008

  • Yeah, someone older than Adam. --Ice Vision (talk) 20:53, 5 February 2008 (EST)
    • Not someone, some people... Khufu and his kin were both evolved.--MiamiVolts (talk) 20:56, 5 February 2008 (EST)
    • That's right, I guess PsilaqTalk to me 21:00, 5 February, 2008

Non-fiction

Since this is the first example I can think of where a real person from history actually shows up in the world of Heroes, we should probably have some biographical information about him in the Notes section. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:14, 5 February 2008 (EST)

Sneferu

As it says in the repository he "taught [Khufu] the art of pyramid building". Is it safe to assume that he could also levitate? Therequiembellishere 16:06, 12 February 2008 (EST)

  • No more than it's safe to assume that Angela, Kaito, Mr. Petrelli, and Charles have powers. It's what they're hinting at (just as they hinted in the GN that everybody who was a member of Khufu's family had the same power), but there's not enough evidence...yet. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:30, 12 February 2008 (EST)
    • I agree that there's not enough evidence yet, but you say that as if you may know something we don't... ;)--MiamiVolts (talk) 18:53, 12 February 2008 (EST)
      • No, I don't know anything you don't know. I pretty much share whatever inside info I might know, or at least tell y'all that I can't tell y'all. :) Take my "yet" as a glimmer of hope. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:43, 12 February 2008 (EST)
        • Well, I think that it is pretty safe to say that all the founders have powers and that it's blind to say that they don't. I guess that, for now, yes, we'd better leave it then if we're going to ask for evidence. However, it should at least be mentioned the comic's implications. Also, did anyone else get the impression that Aswan's dad had a power and wanted to keep it a "family secret" like Khufu? Therequiembellishere 19:51, 12 February 2008 (EST)
          • The subtext was definitely there that Papa Aswan had a power, but wanted to keep it secret, à la Nathan. I don't think we should mention any implications--we printed the exact text from the site. I like to put a little faith in readers that if I can make an assumption, so can they. And if they can't, or don't, then it's probably best not to put anything assumptions, since really, it's just speculation (even if it's well-reasoned and perfectly probable). -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:59, 12 February 2008 (EST)
