The Blemyah appeared in a 2008 comic book of The Secret Saturdays. Acephali is a Greek word meaning "Without head". The term acephalous is given to legendary races who do not have a head, with their facial features residing in their torso. The blemmyes have been situated in wars going back more than a thousand years ago. This is how Argost can easily train it as a bodyguard, but the blemyae were known for their art and good nature. They don't usually fight, unless provoked. The blemyae are also intelligent to a point.
