Sky Witness once possessed a functional Khaji-Da. His bonding with the scarab altered his genetic code, providing him with some of his previous powers.
Enhanced Abilities: Sky Witness has a degree of super human strength, endurance and durability.
Invulnerability: Sky Witness has a degree of invulnerability and the Blue Beetle (Jaime Reyes) armour is unable to harm him due to his past bonding with it.
Webbing: Sky Witness can produce a type of webbing, which he can ensnare a victim.
Artificial Intelligence: Sky Witness still has access to some of the vast knowledge built up by the Khaji-Da. It has allowed him to operate alien technology that he had no previous experience of.
Senses: Sky Witness is able to sense when his Khaji-Da is near.
Life Support: Sky Witness is able to survive in space.
A member of the Mayan people, Sky Witness witnessed the Khaji-Da (A Scarab like living weapon created by the alien species known as the Reach.) crash into Earth and he ventured into the crater. The scarab attached to him but the damage it had sustained allowed him to retain control of the Scarab, and he led his people against the Nahua people who were invading their territory. He chased them from the Mayan lands and then went on to establish the Aztec civilization, where they paid homage to their enemy as the feathered serpent, Quetzalcoatl. Khaji-Da's med system allowed Sky Witness to rule his people for over 100 years before it could sustain him no longer and it demanded a new host. Knowing that it intended to use a new host to enact its plan, he buried the Khaji-Da and himself in his pyramid.
Somehow, Sky Witness ended up entombed on the Reach home world in their repository for the honoured dead and was awakened when he sensed the Khaji-Da, now bonded to Jaime Reyes (Blue Beetle), nearby. Wishing to be united with 'his' scarab once again, he began to stalk Jaime.
