ABOUT

Shenau is a devotee of Set. He is chief of all in the vicinity that lie outside the gorge itself. He would gladly become master of the temple, but not being a priest is a bit of a drawback, though he thinks somehow to overcome that factor. There is friction between Shenau and the high priest of the Temple of Osiris. There is also tension between him and Hept-f-hra, and his family as well. He would gladly slay all save the merchant’s daughter, whom he would make his concubine. He dares not surrender to any foes, for his punishment would be terrible indeed. Shenau attempts to succeed through treachery and trickery, flee to the bandits in the wastes, or otherwise fight to the death.
