Appius Claudius Iratus (also known as Mad Claude) is a Roman ba.
He is at a burial site under a water tower. He is a Roman ba that does not have a bird's body because his life was prepared for another afterlife and he was not given a proper Egyptian ritual. He helped Sadie and Walt reach the location of the third scroll of the Book of Ra. When the two magicians succeeded in claiming the scroll, he asked them to give him the ceremonial knife given to Sadie by Anubis. When they refused, he commanded the mummies to attack them but was defeated when the god Ptah came to the magicians' rescue by summoning a horde of rats that ate away the mummies.
