The son of an archaeologist, Kent Nelson and his father were exploring the Valley of Ur in Mesopotamia in 1920 when they discovered an underground pyramid. Upon closer inspection they found it contained Nabu, an ancient immortal from the planet Cilia who had been held in suspended animation for thousands of years.
