Cleopatra's death bed. She takes her own life by poison

 

 

 

 

 

ALEXANDRIA, EGYPT

 

Cleopatra is the digitally reincarnated Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, who is cloned from the DNA of her newly recovered Mummy.

 

Before taking her own life with a poison asp, the famous ruler (of Greek origin) left instructions for living in the afterlife, to include the potential for resurrection, to be able to follow through with her plans for an Egyptian/Greek empire. Her ultimate scheme to best the Roman rulers that caused her such pain in her past life, by way of revenge.

 

For this reason, her mummification was to an exceptionally high standard. A factor that materially helps those seeking to do her bidding, when they recover her.

 

She is not considered to be an exceptionally beautiful woman by historians, but is a seductress with classical Middle Eastern looks, with Greek origins. She is also extremely intelligent, DNA enhanced, in her replicant state, her thinking is ultra-fast in addition to being exceptionally strong, thanks to her gene manipulation. We are looking for a local model to base our graphic novel on. A person with Middle Eastern lookss, who is attractive.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before taking her own life, she considered herself to be Isis reborn. Goddess of the moon, life and magic, in Egyptian religion. Reborn into a new body, that  description is not far from the truth. She is virtually unstoppable. A match for any athlete, and the most advanced minds on the planet. But what is she like. Will she go for the Nazi derived plan to unite Aryan and Royal Pharaoh blood, and will she give in to the advances of Baron Richthofen, by way of accepting ritual copulation - in vitro fertilization (IVF), or will a cloning DNA mix be necessary.

 

It all depends on how well the coders manage to recreate her past life, given that her brain proves to be beyond recovery. Mostly, mummification involved discarding the brain. But Cleopatra ordered her brain to be preserved, like her heart. Other cloning technology factors come into play. Such as the origin of the donor egg, and the degree of genome patch repair. Much of which revolves around the Scientific (Secret) Society gaining access to the Elizabeth Swann's DNA database.

 

 

 

 

 

Cleopatra is often depicted very revealing

 

 

 

The Egyptian goddess, Isis, protected women and children, and healed the sick. Closely linked to the throne, she was one of the greatest goddesses of Ancient Egypt - and could be again. In the modern world, she is going to need all of her powers to make her dreams come true.

 

 

 

        

 

 

Cleopatra VII Philopates ("glory to her father") was a very popular name among the Ptolemy Dynasty, but the seventh was the most famous, and a legend in her time.

 

Cleopatra VII wasn't an Egyptian. Her bloodlines were Macedonian, Persian, and Greek. Her father was Ptolemy XII Nothos ("the Bastard"), the illegitimate son of Ptolemy XI by one of his concubines. It is said that Ptolemy XI was forced to marry his own elderly stepmother, who was also his cousin. Scholars of Egyptology also believe that her mother was Cleopatra V, the wife and sister of Ptolemy XII, and she died during Cleopatra VII's birth, or soon afterwards, of complications during childbirth.

Cleopatra's ancestry is said to connect back to Alexander the Great, who ruled Egypt in 332 B.C., and founded the city of Alexandria. After Alexander's death on June 10, 323 B.C., his staff officer, Ptolemy, declared himself him in 3-4 B.C., and called himself "Soter I" (Soter meaning savior). Ptolemy I Soter had a strong hooked nose that genetic trait of his line. Ptolemy XII Auletes ("the flute") had Soter's large nose and was Cleo's father. After her mother's death, Ptolemy married his second (unknown) wife and she gave him two sons.

By 305 B.C. Ptolemy became ruler of Egypt and founded the Ptolemaic Dynasty of twelve kings, of the same name, and Cleopatra VII. In this time, wealthy Egyptians tried to gain a Greek education and the Greeks influenced their art and architecture (A. J. Spencer, Death in Egypt. London: Penguin Books, 1991, 25). The Ptolemies continued the old Egyptian ideals and built temples to their gods, and those of Egypt. After Anthony and Cleopatra's death in 30 B.C., Egypt came under Roman rule and they constructed monuments with Roman Emperors as Pharaoh, as in Egypt rule.

 

 

 

On meeting John Storm, the reborn Cleopatra, finds him appealing and is attracted to him. But does not know why that is. She falls for her rescuer. John is the spitting image of Mark Antony, but does not know it, or realise his ancestry, since there are no photographs or truly accurate representations from that period. They were fated to be re-united.
