Niu is short, and skinny. His hair is long, unkempt, and bleached almost white by the sun. Even though he is young, his skin is dry and leathery, darkened by constant sunburn. His lips are cracked, and his voice is dry and rasping.

Crawling over his arms and shoulders is a large, black scarab that stops occasionally to look at you with eyes that seem to know too much.

Niu was a street urchin from Wati. Coming from a very poor family, his home life was uncertain at best. Like many, the family honored Bes, but his luck never seemed to grace the family. Food was scarce, and his mother Ahmes and father Am would often need to leave Niu alone while they were working.

Niu spent a lot of time on the streets. Begging led to shoplifting and introduced him to members of a street gang of young shoplifters. For a while, Niu had a small measure of happiness until a boy named Kafele, a few years older than Niu, joined the gang.

Kafele chose Niu as a target to prove his superiority, but always couched his bullying as "pranks", so as not to seem as malicious. When he decided to up the ante, Kafele and a small group convinced Niu to go out into the desert with them on a camping trip.

As Niu slept, the boys left, leaving Niu with no supplies. Kafele had convinced the boys that this was a "test". Niu, being inexperienced with desert travel immediately became lost. Wandering the hot desert for hours, he began following a mirage of an oasis. After several more hours, Niu was crawling, incoherent, and nearly dead.

As he lay on the sand, a large scarab crawled over his hand and arm toward his head, and a voice spoke in his head. The scarab, Neb-en-toti had been sent by a distant ancestor, Par-ab-hor, a long dead soceror to teach Niu and save his life.

Grasping for any lifeline, Niu accepted the power, using it to heal himself. Finally able to reach the oasis, Niu found himself with shelter, water, and food, but no knowledge of where he was.

For ten years, Niu lived at the oasis, learning and expanding his powers. At long last, a caravan stopped at the oasis for water. Par-ab-hor bid Niu to follow the caravan back to Wati. "Return! Find me in the tombs!"

Seeing no reason to object, Niu followed at a distance. Now back in Wati, he is looking for a way into the tombs, while harboring dreams of reintroducing himself to Kafele.
