Here is a straw man profile for Josh...please feel free to shake to pieces. I was unsure of timing and have established a preliminary great great aunt relationship with the ancestor...could be wildly wrong!
: 5’ 11” Occupation:
Professor of Egyptology, Fellow of The Queens College, OxfordResidence:
Has a town house in Chelsea, professorial rooms at Queens and spends 3 months of each year in Egypt.Personality:
Despite being, outgoing, witty and charming in the lecture hall and an Oxford blue at rowing, he is quite solitary in his non-student facing time. He is single and heterosexual but has not had the pleasure of women for some time due to the obsession for translating ancient text often late into the night. Background:
A prodigy from birth, Josh was destined to follow the family tradition of Oxon academia, achieving his first degree (hon) at the age of 16. His mental brilliance catapulted him through his studies until he was where he wanted to be, at the pinnacle of study of Ancient Egypt, for this is what allows him to chase his real desires.
Josh is a writer and lecturer on the esoteric tradition of ancient Egypt and its religious, philosophical, and metaphysical legacy in modern times. His continuing study in this field derives from a fifteen-year background in historical research, travel throughout the Middle East, and the development of a repertoire of unique skills in recreating Egyptian ceremony and rituals. He is a member of Temple Harakhte, a group of men and women devoted to the experiential religious practices of Egypt’s Old Kingdom.
Above and beyond offering a thorough knowledge of Egyptian history and mythology, Nakhti is well versed in the hieroglyphic script, its transliteration and the translation of ancient texts, and in the nuances of Hermetic philosophy and Sacred Science.
What is not generally known is Josh’s particular attraction to magical practice and ritual in Ancient Egypt. His attraction became an obsession for some time following the discovery of some documents uncovered from a safe that belonged to his great, great aunt, one of the three people responsible for sealing away the body of Queen Cleopatra the Goddess ruler and sexual tyrant. The papers, written in ancient script, were secreted away into Josh’s custody, he being one of a handful of men on earth who could understand their content. Josh later discovered that these papers contained details of the exact charms used at that time. He has almost completed the translation, there are only a few areas where the charms are ambiguous and these he has been rationalising for the last five years.Bodily Scars
: There was a rumour in college that he had a tattoo on the shaft of his penis with the words “I <3 MUMMIES”. This was later thought to be an Oxon myth.
