Thep Khufans are mummy-like creatures composed entirely of organic bandages made from an alien material that feels like old cloth but have elasticity.[DJW 1] They are thin, humanoid-shaped with slight ape-like features on their limbs. They also wear Wadjet headpieces on their forehead, minus nose and mouth. Their clothing resemble that of the ancient Egyptians, consisting of dhoti -like garments on their waist, collars and two bandages dangling from their upper back. They wear golden cuffs on their feet and wrists. Their bodies are hollow, allowing them to store things in their chest. There are gaps between their bandages on their wrists, chest and ankles, as well as their eyes, that glow any color. They have a beak-like toothed mouth with a long tongue beneath their head bandages. Some Thep Khufans have bandages that stick out from their heads like hair, while others wear headdresses and tall hats that are somewhat similar to the Crowns of Egypt and the Nefertiti's Cap Crown.
In Ben 10: Protector of Earth, a more powerful version of Thep Khufans is revealed, Cyclone Khufans. Their bandages are a blackish color, and their clothing are blue and gold. Their head resembles a gold headpiece, shaped like a bird's beak. It is unknown if they exist in the main timeline.
Some Khufans sleep in sarcophagi, the more well off of them any way. The poorer mummy citizens can't afford them, so they are a kind of status symbol among the Thep Khufan wealthy elite.[DJW 2]
Powers and Abilities
Being composed of bandages, Thep Khufans can reshape their bodies at will. This allows them to split themselves apart to dodge attacks and reform to counter-attack. They can also regenerate themselves if they are torn and generate more bandages for various needs.
A Thep Khufan's body is completely hollow, making them extremely flexible.
Although Thep Khufans are frail, they possess a degree of enhanced strength, allowing them to punch away a Squid Monster with ease. Similarly, they can lift objects and people as big as a Segmentasapien with their stretchable limbs.
By reducing their bodies down to single bandages, Thep Khufans can slip through extremely tight spaces or small openings, allowing them to escape various traps or maneuver through cramped areas before reforming afterwards.
Because of their composition, Thep Khufans can breath underwater and survive in the vacuum of space.
Thep Khufans can probably fling themselves up in the air by grabbing two surfaces.[DJW 3]
Like the other races in the Anur System, Thep Khufans are immune to the effects of Corrodium. Furthermore, they can contain pieces of this element in their torsos, which in turn protects other beings from being mutated.
Thep Khufans can extend their arms similar to Petrosapiens.
A Thep Khufan's bandages can withstand lasers.
When extending their limbs or other parts of their bodies, Thep Khufans become susceptible to strong winds and suction forces.
There is an upper limit to how much tension a Thep Khufan's bandages can withstand before breaking.
Because they are made of bandages, Thep Khufans can be flattened by heavy objects, stopping them momentarily.
Thep Khufans can be frozen solid by liquid nitrogen.
Thep Khufans can be tangled up in their own bandages.
