Kazankis was a farmer who was married to Galea. Together they had a son and daughter. Kazankis met Hercules when the hero was saving some local villagers. The meeting changed his life and Kazankis was no longer interested in farming. He began traveling the area, claiming to be Hercules and performing acts of heroism. When Marcenea's children were trapped in a mine, Kazankis (posing as Hercules) went to help rescue them. He was able to help save the children, but in the process, he was killed.
