"I'm telling you, Bayek, I am so close to my dream. If only I was given the chance, I know I could become champion. I mean, wealth, luxury, fame! What more could a woman want?"
―Kensa, on her life as a gladiator, 48 BCE.[src]-[m]

Kensa was an Egyptian gladiator and a friend of the Medjay Bayek, during the reign of Ptolemy XIII.


During the Ptolemy XIII's visit to Siwa in 49 BCE, Kensa was taken as a slave and exploited by Lucius Septimius and his clan. She eventually managed to escape and fled the village, making her way to the city of Krokodilopolis, in the Faiyum Oasis. There, she was taken in by Felix Martialis, the owner of the Krokodilopolis Arena, who trained her to become a gladiator.[1]

A year later in 48 BCE, Kensa was reunited with Bayek, who had came to the city in purusue of Shadya's killer. Catching up with him, Kensa helped Bayek to gain access to the arena, where they formed a team known as the The Siwan Warriors. Together, Kensa and Bayek fought and rose up the ranks to challenge the arena champions, Diovicos and Viridovix, whom they defeated. After defeating them, Kensa learned of Bayek's true motives for entering the arena; Bayek believed them to be responsible for Shadya's death. Kensa offered to help him, though Bayek refused and left the arena.[1]

The next day, Kensa was later employed by Berenike, Shadya's true killer and a member of the Order of the Ancients known as the Crocodile, to serve as her bodyguard, though in this task Kensa ultimately failed.[1]


  • Whilst it is not required in order to complete the mission, it is possible to kill (or not kill) Kensa during the assassination of Berenike; either way, Kensa is not mentioned again.
  • Even if Bayek killed Kensa, a papyrus informing that Kensa is still a gladiator in Faiyum can be found in the Bureau of the Hidden Ones.
