Talus was a very dispicable tyrant. He sought out and aquired the Book of the Dead to aid his army in conquering the world. He was the younger brother of King Horus and his desire to conquer came from his outrage over his older brother getting the throne over him.
Talus was very narcissistic and cruel. When he kidnapped the princess he claimed he could be a benevolent king so long as she did as he said by marrying him. He also belittled those who he subjugated referring to them as monkeys. His arrogance extended to the point where he called Tsukai and her fellow warriors slaves while refusing their advice.
- He is the only other main villain aside from Imhotep to use the book of the dead. Albeit Talus's skills were amateurish in comparison.
