Itennu was a servant of Pharaoh Menkaure, although he was secretly planning his assassination with Kemnebi. When the First Doctor, Susan, Ian, and Barbara arrived, Itennu decided to frame them for killing Menkaure. However, an assassination attempt by one of Itennu's men was thwarted when the Doctor blocked a poison dart with his cane. Right afterwards, a fight commenced between Menkaure's men and Itennu's. Itennu tried to stop the Doctor and his companions from escaping, although he failed. In a later incarnation, the Doctor still never found out what truly happened to Menkaure. (COMIC: The Forgotten)
