At 3067 B.C., the Scorpion King (Mathayus) had a seven year long campaign to conquer Thebes. He and his army got defeated by Thebes after 7 years. They retreated to the desert of Ahm Shere. Near death, Mathayus made a pact with Anubis to defeat Thebes. After eating a scorpion, Ahm Shere became an oasis and Anubis gave Mathayus a gold pyramid and an army of an infinite jackal soldiers. When he finished the job, Mathayus now serves Anubis for all time. Time passed to 1933 (The Year of the Scorpion).
