Circe the Deceiver watched from the shadows, disguised as an ancient beggar, a gilded merchant, a wandering shepherd, as the young pharaoh Tutankhamun rose to power. Circe had worked tirelessly to sow dissatisfaction with the Egyptian gods, and many temples and shrines lay in ruins, abandoned because of her efforts. Now the young pharaoh was restoring the temples, the people's faith, and Circe's fears. The gods had exiled her once -- never again. So she murdered the pharaoh's wife Ankhesenamun and took her form, allowing Circe to get close enough to the ruler to stage a terrible accident that left him shattered, weak, and quickly dead. Unfortunately for the gods, the Thutmoside blood line died with him.
Still in disguise, Circe had his body hastily sealed within his unfinished burial chamber to ensure no one could examine the corpse and become suspicious. But the gods did not need physical evidence of her crimes. They created Tutankhamun's Curse, a vow of vengeance against Circe that would bring the young, powerful pharaoh back to life when the heavens and hells collapsed, releasing the gods and spirits from their prisons. And even though it was Apex and the Third Corruption that brought this catastrophic event about, the curse was nevertheless triggered, and now Tutankhamun rises from his sarcophagus as a warrior of justice for the gods to hunt his killer.
