First Appearance:  X-Men Legacy#254 (October, 2011)

X-Men Legacy#254 (fb) - BTS) - Xanthimi was uninhabited until, at some point, "some crazy anaphract from the Do Sha sect" traveled there.

(X-Men Legacy#254 (fb) - BTS) - After the Gul Damar space station's gravitic flux generator was damaged due to battle between the Shi'ar and the Grad Nan Holt, the sun's gravity was dramatically affected, presumably pulling the first four planets in its orbit into it.

(X-Men Legacy#254) - Xanthimi was pulled into its sun.

(X-Men Legacy#254 - BTS) - Observing this from Grad Nan Holt, Glitter, one of Sovel Redhand's band of space pirates, advised that this would happen to them soon if they did not move quickly to evacuate.

Comments: Created by Mike Kary, Steve Kurth, and Jay Leisten.

Xanthimi was in the same star system as the Gul Damar space station was originally located.

"Some crazy anaphract from the Do Sha sect"
Assuming it's not just word salad, it may be that anaphract comes from ana phraktos (like cataphract, a type of armored horseman, which comes from kataphraktos, "wearing armor" or literally "enclosed, fenced in") then ana (up or against) phraktos (fence) - so "outside the fence" or more generally I would guess an outsider. And Do Sha sect might be referring to Do Sha (629-700), a Japanese scholar who brought the concept of Zen to Japan from China.
