Omar gained a reputation as a cat burgular and was kidnapped by a group of tomb raiders. They forced him to break into a pyramid and steal the treasures within. After evading many traps he began to grab as much as he could, intending to leave the raiders behind. However, as he was leaving, a fissure appeared in the wall and the god Anubis appeared to him. As punishment for desecrating his tomb, he ordered Omar to become a symbol of justice and granted him extra strength, the ability to detect death and the ability to stick to walls.
