Centuries ago, Ranark was an Indian sorcerer who made "obscene pacts with the dark spirits until he became like unto a god himself." Fearful of his might, the medicine men of neighbouring tribes banded together and used spells to imprison his spirit within a sacred urn, which they hid in a remote crypt in the mountains of northwest Alberta, Canada.
In the present day, Ranark managed to employ a powerful "mind-spell" that mesmerized Shaman of the team Alpha Flight and forced him to open the urn freeing him.
