Raza Longknife was a slave to the Shi'ar empire alongside Christopher Summers. He subsequently escaped and joined the Starjammers, a group of space pirates that were opposed to Emperor D'Ken's rule of the Shi'ar Empire. They were led by D'Ken's sister Deathbird.
When Gambit and his X-Ternals arrived in Shi'ar space, they were rescued from a battle with the Imperial Guard by the Starjammers, with Raza among their number. He remained aboard the Starjammer as Deathbird and the X-Ternals went to the planet holding the M'kraan Crystal. His current fate remains unknown.
