Tut-Cartouche

The first name on the scroll, Tutankhamun.

Kane-Cartouche

The Kane family name.

The Blood of the Pharaohs is the royal bloodline dating back to Ancient Egypt.

Description

The possessors of the royal blood are extremely powerful and are favored by the gods as hosts. Thought to be extinct, the bloodline continues into the modern world. Carter and Sadie Kane are the most powerful magicians born to the line in thousands of years.

A list of the pharaohs is contained on a papyrus scroll called The Blood of the Pharaohs. One copy is kept in the library of Brooklyn House, which includes the name Kane written in hieroglyphs.

Those with the blood of the pharaohs are currently being persecuted by the House of Life for following the Path of the Gods. Sadie and Carter have begun to use Osiris's djed to call others like them to Brooklyn House.

Anyone who has the blood of the pharaohs has the right to become the Pharaoh of the House of Life. Carter Kane eventually took up this position after Apophis was destroyed.

According to Thoth, those who have the blood of the pharaohs always have the ability to summon boats to take them to the Duat if needed. The Kane family has the ability to summon the Egyptian Queen and can also use Ra's sunboat.
