Search for 'Khoryphos' on Amazon

Used mandolin to subtly manipulate the thoughts of others

Little has been revealed about the past of the Eternal named Khoryphos. He is either a third or fourth generation Eternal and is at least 5,000 years old. In ancient Egypt he was mistaken for the god Horus. Khoryphos may in fact be the musician known in ancient Greek myths as Orpheus; if not, then he was mistaken for Orpheus in ancient Greece.

For thousands of years Khoryphos has devoted himself to composing and playing music, and has been a friend to his fellow Eternal Ikaris. When the son of Ikaris, also named Ikaris, died, Khoryphos wrote a song in memory of the younger Ikaris. Khoryphos has been working on a monumental musical composition since the reign of the Roman emperor Tiberius, roughly two thousand years ago.

When most of the Eternals of Earth recently left for outer space, Khoryphos remained behind. He has joined Ikaris in his opposition to the threatening activities by the Deviants.
