Sahjhan, commonly known as the Timeshifter, was a demon of the Granok species. Sahjhan was one of a race of demons known as the Granok, who thrived on chaos and violence. Deciding that the Granoks were too chaotic and unpredictable, Mesektet and Wolfram & Hart used a spell to render them, including Sahjhan, non-corporeal. Though it was meant to prevent the Granoks from interacting with their environment, Sahjhan developed the power to travel through time and dimensions, earning the nickname "Timeshifter." Eventually, after the birth of Angel's son Connor, Sahjhan travelled back to the 18th century to recruit Daniel Holtz, a vampire hunter whose life was destroyed by Angelus and Darla, and made a bargain with him to take him into the future and have another chance at revenge.
