Pharaoh An-Hepsu XI (also known as the Pharaoh of No Rain, the Lich Pharaoh, and the Incorruptible Pharaoh) ruled Osirion with unquestioned might for nearly four centuries. The last of his dynastic line and likely unable to father children, the pharaoh turned his arcane skills to extending his life and then mummifying his still-living flesh to ensure he would never die. His undead condition was not suspected for another 80 years. Eventually the clergy rebelled and An-Hepsu's rule came to an abrupt end. The pharaoh's remains were divided and his mummified organs and body were sealed in separate, warded containers to prevent his regeneration or his otherworldly release. Sequestered from the royal necropoleis and the desert elementals, An-Hepsu's tomb is said to exist somewhere in the Pillars of the Sun in a hidden valley, mountain peak, or pyramid disguised as a mountain.[1] An-Hepsu XI sought to use a fiend, Zelishkar, imprisoned in the Labyrinth of Shiman-Sekh against the Shory aeromancers, but the ruin was resealed during his reign.[2] An-Hepsu XI was succeeded by the crown regent Kemusar I, who began his reign in -1768 AR.[3]
