India has its infamous “Nagas” aka snake-people who were seen as Demi-gods with vast knowledge.
In China there are actually pyramids that they deliberately hide by burning them and trying to pass them off as mounds/hills. There are also mummies found throughout the years that still have their hair, which is light, and said to have blue colored irises.
In South America there is the infamous Quetzalcoatl, often tied to another Demi-god (Viracocha) who was a white man with a beard and light eyes.
You can find the similar theme across many cultures honestly, and it probably all has to do with some advanced being with an unworldly intelligence.https://historycooperative.org/snake-gods-and-goddesses/
