"Reincarnate and Annihilate"

Films: The Awakening (1980)

Alias: Margaret Corbeck

Type: Mystical

Location: Haunted Home/Civilized area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Pharaohs tend to be pretty consistent in movies. Mainly, most of them are power-seeking, ultimately doomed conquerors who lived on riches and royalty. But no one seems to give much of a thought to the female Pharaohs these days, do they?

History: In her time as Pharaoh, Queen Kara was a horrible tyrant. She butchered hundreds, and held that she would live forever via reincarnation. And this was all before she hit 18, which is ironically the year she died. After being entombed, an archaeologist seeking glory and fame uncovered her. After her unveiling, Kara immediately possessed and brought back to life a baby thought to be stillborn. When this child, named Margaret, turned 18, Kara began to take over.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Kara manages to trick the archaeologist into performing a ritual that lets her keep Margaret's body for the rest of her life. After killing him, she ventures off into the world. Though, to say that the inevitable embarrassment in a world that has abandoned Pharaohs will be big is a bit of an understatement.

Powers/Abilities: Mild omnipotence, possession.

Weakness: Anything conventional, we hope.

Scariness Factor: 4-If you wanted a lady Caligula to come into the modern world, then you clearly have issues. Also, while she can be a bit campy, she does her part as an unstoppable spirit of a bygone age.

Trivia: -The first female Pharaoh was Sobekneferu ("Beauty of Sobek"), the last of the 12th dynasty. She took over when her brother died, and her death marked the end of the Middle Kingdom's golden age.

-One major setback during filming was an incident while in the Valley of the Kings. A sandstorm kept attacking the set, one almost immediately striking when the director yelled "action". At the very least, the effects department had their work cut out for them.
