"I just want my daughter back...Please?!"
―Khaliset's final words, begging the gods for reunion with her deceased daughter

Khaliset (c. 80s BCE – 48 BCE), also known as The Hyena, was a member of the Order of the Ancients during the reign of Ptolemy XIII.


Khaliset served the Order by gathering silica for them in the ancient tombs of Giza, as silica had special properties and could be used to power the Isu technology the Order sought.[1]

Eventually, however, she went rogue and began keeping the silica for herself, prompting the Taharqa, a fellow member known as The Scarab, to write her a letter questioning her lack of contact with them. She began studying the ancient symbols in the Isu Temple beneath Khufu's Pyramid and began to learn how to use the technology for her ultimate purpose of resurrecting her deceased daughter Eshe.[1][2]

In 48 BCE, the Medjay Bayek tracked Khaliset to the Great Pyramid of Giza, where he found the Isu Temple, Eshe's sarcophagus, and evidence of Khaliset's attempts to resurrect her, before Khaliset herself appeared, furious that Bayek had disturbed her daughter's "tomb". He chased her through the pyramid's tunnels, eventually succeeding in killing her after a dramatic confrontation in the middle of a sandstorm outside the pyramid.[1]

Personality and traits

Unlike most of the other members of the Order who sought power and dominance over Egypt, Khaliset was only determined to use the Order's resources to resurrect her daughter who died by unknown means. To that end, she was willing to commit many atrocities and sacrifice many innocents in deadly rituals that she believed would aid in her daughter's resurrection. She displayed a remorse side as she died, lamenting the fact she had been unable to protect her child in life or in death.[1][2]

Equipment and Skills

Khaliset was able to tame hyenas to do her bidding, and had several accompanying her wherever she went. Khaliset was also skilled with a bow as well as matters of stealth which she used to her advantage in combat during a sandstorm.[1]
