Hu-benti, a priest of Set, isn’t particularly bright, but what he lacks in intelligence he makes up for with a rigid outlook and strict adherence to instructions from his master, Setem-nefer. He is a fanatic and hopes that his service to Set will be rewarded with a promotion to chief priest. His job is to make sure that the bandits do not reveal any secrets. In the fray ahead, this means that Hu-benti will fight. He flees if combat goes badly, particularly if Turpur runs off, as he thus saves his life and has a perfect excuse. However, he will die fighting rather than surrender. If he is somehow taken alive, he never speaks freely about any association with the Temple of Osiris.
