The Karawan Amulets legend
3,000 years ago during the 19th Dynasty, Pharaoh Seti I requested an amulet to be created by the Egyptian Goddess Hathor; it was not only to ensure his protection but his family's as well. Hathor accepted Seti's request and offered him the Khaldun Amulet, a ka necklace with the powers of immortality and invincibility. The pharaoh accepted Hathor's offering and kept it with him at all times.
But watching from afar was the God Set who decided to create an amulet of his own; he created the Setesh Amulet, a Was scepter capable of traveling through time. As a Guardian of Re and truly believing his intentions were good, Set ordered a servant to present it to the pharaoh who eventually accepted his offering after he learned that nothing was required in return. The God Horus became enraged when he learned of Set's interference and confronted him, but after the two archrivals came to an agreement to turn this into a contest, Set decided to 'make things interesting' and turned Horus into a falcon and only death would free him from this form.
Taking this as an opportunity to watch over Egypt and observe Set, Horus remained on the sidelines and watched as anarchy unfolded because of the amulets creation. While Horus might have been furious at the outcome, Set was intrigued as humans were fighting each other to claim the amulets for their own. It was because of this that Set became the God of darkness and chaos and eventually lost his title as the Guardian of Re.
Due to the warfare and a priest of Set's suggestion, Pharaoh Seti I activated an ability of the Setesh Amulet and by placing both amulets beside one another he willfully permitted them to travel into the year 1934, approximately one year after the defeat of Mathayus the Scorpion King. But unknowingly to him, Set would use this as an opportunity to advance in this contest.
Seti - who still remained unaware of Set's intentions - made a request to Set to create a spell that would stop the amulets movements. Grudgingly, Set accepted Seti's request but he decided that only he and the pharaoh would be aware of this spell. Furthermore, he refused to let the spell be written down in order to ensure this. Seti then requested that Imhotep was able to see the country, Anck-su-namun was able to see the city, and that his daughter Nefertiri was able to see the building which the amulets resided in, which Set accepted as well.
Upon the death of Pharaoh Seti I and the Great Royal Wife Tuya, Set decided to alter their reincarnations destinies and placed them into the Djed clan and they'd become the ancestral enemies to the Medjai. Nefertiri would continue to prosper in her original destiny as the daughter of Howard Carnahan, the Egyptologist responsible for Tutankhamen's finding as well as unleashing the Curse of the Pharaoh's upon the world. Meanwhile, Imhotep and Anck-su-namun would also continue their original destinies as well. However, upon their next death in 1933, Set decide to not only move the Book of the Dead and the Book of Amun-Ra from their original resting places, but to also move Imhotep and Anck-su-namun's corpses back to their original burial site at Hamunaptra.
Horus watching Set alter their destinies decided to take matters into his own hands and became a messenger bird for the Medjai in the 1920s-1930s. Upon his death at the hands of Lock-Nah during the Battle of Ahm Shere, Horus was free to enter his God form again. When the amulets resurfaced into the year 1934, Horus visited Alex O'Connell through a dream at Hamunaptra and told him that "We have waited for you. An eye for an eye. Twelve shall be taken from you. An exchange. Twelve for power. Necessary power. Restore the balance. Find the amulets. On the twelfth day of your twelfth month, you will choose." and gave Alex not only an Eye of Horus tattoo on his back, but he also transformed him into a young adult with the powers to destroy the amulets.
The Setesh Amulet
The Setesh Amulet is capable of traveling into the past, present and future, but it can only travel in time when it's accompanied by its twin. Once the ability to travel in time is activated it can't be stopped unless an incantation is said. Regrettably, only Pharaoh Seti I and the God Set are aware of this incantation as it wasn't written down. If the amulet's touched while its time-traveling abilities is activated and no incantation has been said, the person who touched the amulet will travel along with it to another location on Earth.
The amulet can't stop time or adjust the speed of time, but it can make ruins appear as they were in antiquity. Those chosen by Pharaoh Seti I are the only ones capable of locating the amulet. It must be emphasized that those unfamiliar with the expedition will assume that it's just an ordinary artifact with no extraordinary powers. They can however, suffer the consequences mentioned above if they touch it.
The Khaldun Amulet
The Khaldun Amulet is the twin of the Setesh Amulet and it was created by the Goddess Hathor, and its design is based on a ka necklace. The Khaldun Amulet grants its wearer immortality, invincibility, protection from impairment and death. It can also restore its wearer to their youthful state. Unlike its twin, the Khaldun Amulet can't travel in time or move from place to place.
