Prince Tutankhanut was the only son of King Ahken of Numas and was famed throughout Nehekhara for his good looks.[1b]

History

It is unknown during what age Tutankhanut was among the living, but it must have been prior to the machinations of Nagash.[1]

Unfortunatly, he was slain before he even turned 15. On a hunting trip he was separated from his party and a lone northern tribesman used his spear to knock the young prince from his chariot, the spear impaling through Tutankhanut's chest.[1b]

His father, who was very fond of his son, gave Tutankhanut a lavish burial that included all the most elaborate rituals available including embalming and preservation. Ages passed, but when Tutankhanut awoke from his deathly slumber, he was disgusted to find his body withered and old. Believing that in the afterlife the gods provided bodies of gold to the dead, he had his priests fashion him one to cover his decayed corpse.[1b]

He spent centuries restoring the pyramids of the city to their former glory. [1a]

The Scythans, a nomad tribe travelled to the city to worship their god and took the Prince to be a manifestation of that diety. They pledging their service to him and now both the living and dead serve him harmoniously. The nomads patrol the desert for the Prince, watching for intruders and when one of their warriors die, the body is left for 40 days and nights to be picked clean before being prepared to serve the Prince in undeath. [1a]

Weapons and Equipment

Now, when he rises wearing his golden body armour and ritual death mask, his followers believe him to be blessed by the gods. Many join his army as it marches to war, and when battle begins, Tutankhanut can be seen fighting in the front, his golden armour deflecting all but the most powerful attacks. [1b]
