main imageHistory: (Eternals II#2 (fb) - BTS) - The birth of Ranar was fatal for his mother who died giving him life. Ghaur was present at Ranar's birth and later studied his genetic code. Ranar was the heir to the throne, as son of Tode, Emperor of Lemuria.
    After Tode's death and the destruction of Lemuria at the hands of the Celestials, Ranar helped to rebuild Lemuria.
    Ranar, as son of Tode, decided to claim the throne for himself.

(Eternals II#2 ) - Ranar paraded in Lemuria, his servants incited the crowd to hail him. Once in the Temple of the Priests, Ranar ordered his servants to kill the human slaves, then met Ghaur and claimed his rights to the Throne. Ghaur called him inept so Ranar wielded his spear against the priest, but Ghaur, using his manipulating abilities over Deviant genes had Ranar cry solid tears. The tears solidified on Ranar's mouth. Surprised and scared, Ranar was executed by one of Ghaur's disciples and his body was thrown into the Fire Pits.
