Hetepkheti Tefnakhte, known also as Khalis, was a priest who lived in the city of Bubastis in ancient Egypt in the year 2030 BCE. He was mummified and buried alive by Nabu, as punishment for enslaving the people of his city.

In 1955 his sarcophagus was unearthed and delivered to the Boston Museum of Egyptology. Once resurrected, Khalis came into conflict with Doctor Fate, the current possessor of the Amulet of Anubis. Khalis temporarily defeated Fate and reclaimed his amulet. With the help of his wife, Inza Nelson, Doctor Fate learned Khalis' true name was Hetepkheti Tefnakhte. In Egyptian culture, knowledge of an opponent's true name granted one power over them. Invoking the power of the sun god Amon-Ra, Doctor Fate spoke Khalis' true name and destroyed him.
