From Unofficial Handbook of the Virtue Universe
The Mad Mummy was just an ordinary mummy, full of death until that one fateful day. Now, his past in the shadows of a bright, new future, the Mad Mummy, seemingly unable to die, patrols the streets of Paragon City alongside Sin Stalker and the Justice-Knights, fighting crime as a mostly-silent hero.
The Mad Mummy never told his tale to anyone else after his awakening except to a fellow Justice-Knight named Hell, who happens to be the only person who understands what the Mad Mummy is saying (due to the Mad Mummy’s limited English vocabulary). Hell promised the Mad Mummy that he would never speak about the Mad Mummy’s life to anyone else unless Mad wanted someone to know. Mad only released his former name before he was resurrected: Celcius Ankhas. The Mad Mummy has not released any further information regarding his past life, although his proficiency with bladed weapons and vigorous training exercises suggest he was involved in some form of militaristic association.
A nefarious necromancer known only as the Summon Shade infiltrated the Museum of Natural History in Paragon City, stealing ancient artifacts and various treasures. Before the Justice-Knights could arrive to the scene, the Summon Shade had robbed nearly all treasures and artifacts. The Justice-Knights cornered the Summon Shade in the Ancient Egyptian exhibit when he resurrected all of the mummies on display. All but one mummy attacked the Justice-Knights, refusing to obey the Summon Shade’s order. Before Shade destroyed the mummy, Sin Stalker tried to capture Shade, but the necromancer escaped with a teleportation spell. The Justice-Knights defeated the remaining mummies, but Sin Stalker saved the rebellious mummy from destruction.
After the battle with the Summon Shade, Sin Stalker took the mummy back to the Justice-Knights base. Not able to understand the mummy’s language, Sin calls upon Hell, a fellow Knight, to verify the language and to translate what the mummy is saying. Hell verifies that the mummy is speaking in an ancient Egyptian tongue, but Hell tells Sin Stalker that the mummy does not wish to enclose the details of his past to strangers. Sin respects the mummy’s privacy and has Hell ask him if the mummy wanted to join the Justice-Knights. Hell translates back to Sin that the mummy agrees because he has no other home.
Sin takes the mummy through various testing and training grounds, training the mummy to become a hero. Seeing as he is already dead, the mummy does not attempt to dodge attacks, discovering that he can regenerate at an abnormally fast rate. It is at that point the mummy gains the nickname of the “Mad Mummy”, as he attempts deadly aerobatics and fighting styles.
The Mad Mummy also discovers he possesses unnatural speed and reflexes, making him fast, both locomotive and reflexively. The Justice-Knights’ weapons-smith fashions a khopesh and sword out of the best blade metal for Mad, in which Mad shows Sin Stalker his skills with the two blades. After much rigorous training, the Mad Mummy is officially inducted into the Justice-Knights, at which point Mad reveals to Sin his original name: Celcius Ankhas. Because the Mad Mummy was fast on his feet and virtually undetectable, he is ranked as Captain and as the Justice-Knights’ Lead Reconnaissance Hero.
Mad becomes best friends with Hell, since Hell is the only person who could understand what Mad is saying and because Hell is trustworthy enough to keep secrets.
The Mad Mummy’s increased speed and reflexes make him faster than stronger. Mad will deal many medium-sized to low-sized attacks at one time, quickly weakening the enemy for the final blow.
Dual Blades Mastery
