Mathayus the Scorpion King
Five thousand years ago a man known as Mathayus the Scorpion King led a great campaign to conquer the known world. After a vicious campaign that lasted seven long years the Scorpion King and his army were defeated and driven deep into the sacred desert of Ahm Shere. One by one they slowly perished under the scorching sun until only the great warrior himself was left alive. Near death, the Scorpion King made a pact with the dark god Anubis. He told Anubis that if he spared his life and allowed him to conquer his enemies he would give him his soul. Anubis accepted his offer and spared his life.
Anubis gave the Scorpion King command of his army and like an evil flood they washed away all that laid before them. When his task was done Anubis forced the Scorpion King to serve him for all time and his army was returned to the sands of whence they came where they waited silently to be awakened once again.
The Army of Anubis
The Army of Anubis was created by the Egyptian God Anubis and was given to the Scorpion King so that he could conquer his enemies. They can only be killed by cutting off their head. In 1933 when they were awakened by Baltus Halfez at Ahm Shere, the Medjai were forced to battle against them. They returned to their slumber at the defeat of the Scorpion King.
