Ahmanet is the primary antagonist in the 2017 film The Mummy. She is an ancient Egyptian princess whom was promised by her father, the Pharaoh, that she would one day be the Queen of Egypt. However after her father bore a son, he broke his promise to Ahmanet: instead of naming her as his heir, he chose to name his son the Pharaoh. Infuriated by this betrayal, she forges a pact with the Egyptian god of death, Set, which subsequently unleashes dark forces on the earth and allows her to cheat death. With her newfound powers, she murders her father and as punishment is mummified alive and entombed within an ornate sarcophagus, sealed away and hidden for millennia. Centuries later, she was excavated by American military forces under the employ of the United Kingdom, with the directive to bring the sarcophagus back to London. Ahmanet awoke and her powers summoned forth powerful storm-force winds and a flock of birds to crash the plane en route back to the UK, with the primary protagonist, Nick Morton, still aboard. As her powers slowly grow throughout the movie, she seeks to unleash her powers onto the world and remake it as the kingdom she was deceived out of obtaining.
Ahmanet is an Egyptian princess who was once promised to become Pharaoh, but was betrayed by her father after he decided to name her younger, baby brother as his heir. Her mother died in her birth, thus leaving her sole heir until her father remarries. This marriage left the product of a son, thus wiping Ahmanet claim to the throne. Heartbroken and angry about her father's betrayal, she summons the Egyptian god Set, a dark entity which grants her powers in order to get what she desires: the power to gain the kingdom she was deprived of, for the exchange of gaining Set a corporeal form. After executing her family, Ahmanet prepares to make a human sacrifice, her lover, only to be captured by her father's loyal priests and condemned to be buried alive far away from Egypt in Mesopotamia. This prisonment only keeps her locked away with her body slowly decaying and her powers weakened, Ahmanet was technically still alive through her long imprisonment. Her hate for humanity just grew stonger through the milleniums.
Ahmanet was ruthless, cunning, and beautiful. She was raised to be the successor of her father, Pharoah Menephtre. Her mother died giving birth to her, leaving her as the sole heir. Ahmanet's destiny came to an end when the Pharoah's second wife bore a son. This left her angry and bitter towards humanity. She then decided to make a pact with Set, to punish her father and humanity itself. After being unleashed from her prison, she is determined to keep her end of the bargain to regain her throne.
It's implied that her centuries of being trapped have driven her partially, if not completely, insane and have only made her negative impulses worse.
Ahmanet could best be described as ambitious. As the sole heir to the throne of Ancient Egypt, she would've been the most powerful person in the area. Her ambition proved so great that she knowingly and willingly made a deal with Set - despite knowing that it would lead to a cursed life for eternity - for power. And later, after the deal was made she callously murdered her own father and baby brother for the sake of said power.
Despite this she was shown to still possess some form of humanity deep down as she appeared to care for her former Chosen a great deal, and later, after picking him as her new Chosen, tried to convince Nick to join her side even saving him from a horrible plane crash that would've killed him had she not been protecting him. She was shown to be genuinely upset, almost to the point of tears, when she saw him abandon her for Jenny while she was held captive.
This perceived betrayal is likely what led her to attack and brutally kill Jenny later on and is also why she ruthlessly beat Nick to a pulp and threw him around the crypt like a ragdoll. Even after this, she still cared for Nick and again tried to have him willingly join her.
When she was being held captive by Prodigium, while talking to Nick, Ahmanet remembers back to her days in Ancient Egypt and reveals that she only ever wanted her father's love and approval and that the true reason she killed him was because she realized that he would never have been able to truly accept her as a daughter. How much, if any, of this is true is uncertain.
She was also shown to have a very jealous side to her as she immediately took a strong dislike towards Jenny, whom she viewed as rival for Nick's affections. This dislike would eventually turn to bitter hatred after she witnessed Nick leave her chained up to escape the Prodigium headquarters with her and she quickly became obsessed with finding Jenny and killing her first sending her Zombies after her and then later physically drowning her to make sure she couldn't steal Nick from her.
She was also implied to be very intelligent as she was able to learn how to use weapons and then wield them with frightening proficiency. Later, despite having only been alive again for a few short hours, she appeared to be able to speak fluent English easily without any noticeable trouble even referring to it as being easy to learn.
To sum it all up, Ahmanent was an intensely vengeful and power-hungry individual who was always willing to do anything and everything within her power to achieve her goals. Her desires for love and companionship became extremely twisted after she became cursed and are likely responsible for many of the horrible acts that she committed both in the past and in the present.
Physical description Edit
Powers and abilities Edit
- Necromantic Witchcraft: Ahmanet currently exists as a living spirit within her own undead corpse. Her power stems from her pact with the god Set, which keeps her soul earthbound and her body partially alive. As an undead being, Ahmanet's powers stem from necromancy rooted within ancient Egyptian mummification, and are fueled by the dark forces which strengthen her. Her great rage for her stolen destiny also fuel her and strengthen her powers further still. The exact limit of her abilities have yet to be determined, nor have her limitations been shown to be connected to any ancient gods or darker spirits from the Underworld.
- Super Strength: From the dark otherworldly forces which sustain her unnatural life-force, Ahmanet possesses prodigious physical strength in comparison to that of a normal, living being; although, her level of strength seems to be related to the current state of her body: the more undead and decayed she is, the weaker and more easily restrained she is, even by mortal means such as steel chain links. Feeding on the flesh and fluids of the living gradually restores her strength while also regenerating her body. She can easily break free of chain restraints as well as send grown men high into the air with the slightest touch.
- Immortality: Her immortality, as discussed, stems from her reanimation due to her awakening from being removed from the place of her burial. She was released as a malevolent spirit due to her pact with Set giving her the power to transcend death.
- Flesh Consumption: After her reanimation, Ahmanet's corpse was emaciated, desiccated, and decayed from over three millennia of entombment, making her little more than a skeleton and dried flesh. As per her powers of necromancy and powers connected to the forces of darkness, Ahmanet possesses the power to "feed" upon or absorb and assimilate the flesh, organs, and vital fluids of living victims whilst she remains in her undead state, leaving the victim a desiccated corpse like herself. The process is painfully fatal to the victim while also proving uncomfortable for Ahmanet, as her skin, organs, and bones take shape from within and around her undead corpse.
- Sand Manipulation: Ahmanet possesses the ability to conjure up a highly destructive sandstorm that can form a giant face. While in London, she used verbal mystical spell to summon a sandstorm, which caused all the glass in the area to shatter into sand particles and forms the sandstorm which she intended too summon over the people of London.
- Resurrection: Set gave her the power to resurrect the dead. She demonstrated such resurrection powers when she resurrected the recently deceased Nick Morton as well as resurrect the deceased ancient English crusaders as her undead slaves and warriors.
- Combat Proficiency: Ahmanet, being a Ancient Egyptian having trained to become a Pharaoh, is assumed to have been proficient in combat and fighting abilities (this is further facilitated by her actress, Sofia Boutella, mentioning that Ahmanet is a warrior in one of her many interviews).
- Multilingualism: Ahmanet, is able to speak both Ancient Egyptian and modern English without any difficulty.
- Ahmanet is the first titular character of The Mummy film series to be portrayed as a female, as past renditions saw the Mummy's being presented as male figures, thus making her the first female Mummy to be represented in the franchise.
- In addition to making her the first female mummy, this film also tells a new, original story centered around the titular character, as opposed to re-using the story of Imhotep, the first mummy, or Kharis, the second mummy.
