the result of the union between Amenti and the Pharaoh, Seken'en'Ra I..
She had been a creation of love, blessed
by Hathor. Amenti had gone to the next life just after pressing a
tender kiss to the forehead of her newborn
daughter. It had been agreed upon [as per Amenti's request] before
the birth that the truth would
be withheld until the child's 16th flood. Nefersenut never remarried and
thus raised Taheret on his own,
as his daughter. Nefersenut being without a son and Taheret being his only child, he allowed her more
freedom than most fathers were wont to do with their females. Nefersenut, himself, saw to her weapons
training and Seken'en'Ra I helped in teaching her to hunt. She was a child hungry for knowledge and
her Father and "Uncle" made sure she was provided with teachers. She learned reading, writing
& even accounting, among various leisurely skills.
to be an above average huntress and on several occasions had shamed a few
men with her fighting skills. Weapons
or fisticuffs, she was a match for them. Rather than being an embarrassment to her Father,
he had taken pride that his heart's daughter would always be able to protect herself, should the
grown up a tomboy, she was taught by none other than Teti the graces of the Court. Kneeling,bowing and all the formality had been more difficult a task to set for herself than had been brawling but her dearest Teti had been patient [and even amused.. Tah's many blundered attempts at kneeling had been the source of much laughter for Teti and Keph] and relentless in her own task of teaching. The result was that Tah could
then fool any into thinking her sophisticated, prim and proper.
had an unusual sense of humanity, abhorring slavery as it degraded and humiliated another human being; therefore, her Father gifted her with servants in his pay. Makare had tended her since childhood and remained close. Ahmes, slave to a tyrant, had been saved by Taheret from a fate worse than death. Nefersenut paid an extravagant sum to free the man, and in loyalty, Ahmes remained with Tah. Both were the girl's personal confidants, friends from whom she kept no secrets.. and they had
both sworn their lives for hers.
There is in her life also Anhay, a girl caught in the act of stealing bread from the market. Taheret came along in time to witness the third lashing upon the girl's bare back and intervened. The incident ended with Taheret paying the vendor for the bread and taking the girl home with her. A bath and new clothing and Anhay presented a fine picture of nobility. Taheret took the girl under her wing and is in the process of educating her. Anhay is now the baby sister Taheret never had.
incident involving the beating of a slave caught our girl's attention. She had walked in to find an older slave lashing a younger for having books in her possession. Taheret then saw herself as the hand of Ma'at, dealing out swift justice to the cruel slave and stealing the bookworm away to her own home. There she instructed Nailah in the graces of the Court, just as Teti had done for her. Sharing
the girl's thirst for knowledge, she felt akin from the first glance. Nefersenut assisted Tah in finding instructors to insure Nailah the best education. The girl now devours more books than even our Taheret! With clever scheming, Nailah is now the Cousin of Taheret through Amenti's sister, Kesin. Of course, there are a few loose ends to tie up before the plan is perfection, but Taheret had faith.
had left her, but that did not mean our girl was motherless, for none other than the Royal Midwife and Priestess who had birthed her, the first to ever touch her in this life, Neferura [her Ura had always filled that which might have been a void. Ura was regal and wise, and though she argued the fact, she was beauty personified. It seemed to Taheret that all the gods had their hand upon her Ura and her Ura seemed to always have her eye on Tah. There were many times when Taheret suspected that her Ura was blessed by the
gods to read minds, for she had the uncanny ability to read those around her.. especially Taheret. Twas a difficult thing to be sneaky when her Mewet'ib seemed to know all without a word. Neferura never demanded respect, but her presence commanded it. Even the Pharaoh himself held her in high
respect. Not only a Mother to Taheret [and countless others] but also her Teacher in herbs and healing.
Taheret was a diligent pupil and it was put to the test the eve that the girl delivered Elsa's boy child,
Dietrich. A very proud accomplishment as Taheret had thought herself a curse due to Amenti's death.
The hands that had delivered the babe and the hands that had healed others were not only Taheret's but
an extension of Neferura. Her Ura's patience in teaching the girl was the cause of many lives and limbs
not forget her childhood friends, Kephera the Seer and Prince Senseneb. Time and circumstances had put a strange distance between our girl and Sen. She would always love him and worry herself over him and
view him as brave, but it would take a little nudge to open communication again. This was probably
due to the fact that as she grew older, she had learned the thing most men desired above all things,
and word was that Senseneb desired this more-so than any other male in her acquaintance [or so she thought].
Kephera.. the enigma.. gentle breeze in the morning and raging storm in the eve. Taheret's senet'ib. They had always shared a special rapport and had seen many troubles [some of their own doing.. mostly Taheret's] together, and they had shared many a secret that would
go with them to their afterlives. Kephera, sweet and intoxicating with a heart of gold. Keph was not one
any wished to anger, though Tah had learned early on to weather the storm of her heart-sister's rage. Taheret's heart went out to her sister and friend as she watched Keph being raised as if in a bottle. Tah valued freedom above all else and thought Keph never complained of such, Tah felt her best friend
was locked in an invisible cage. Lately, Sen's Ka has battled to remain in this life several times over,
his bravery and strength winning time and again.. and Kephera... Her heart had been given to this one man...
and now they were to be parents of twins... Taheret prays daily that her Brother and Heart-sister will be granted happiness and peace with life,
just as she has been blessed.

as this cannot be caged~*
Taheret with her favorite
pet, Kem. She awoke one morning to
this magnificent creature
of the wild simply lying in her bed
as if he had always belonged.
Extremely possessive of her,
Tah must take care where
he is when others might touch her.
An angry scribe lost a finger
to the beast when he was seen
by Kem to be scolding his
Mistress. Luckily twas on the man's
left hand and he remains
employed. [Luckily he only lost a finger
to the big cat and not his
head to Taheret.]
first exotic pet, Sheba..Ima,
the only survivor in an abandoned
gift from Nefersenut, her Father.litter,
was found by Taheret on the
will give her to Kem asborders

Mate at next inundation.a

full grown and tame

Another possessive creature,
Taheret whilst she was "guest"
Ahmose's barge. The child
of Horus took such
an instant liking to the
girl that he attempted
to perch upon her hand. The
by the girl] led to a
bout of fever, leaving Tah
in bed the first week
or so of their arrival at
the Palace in Ititawy.
*~ How could one of such Princely
virtues be considered Barbarian? ~*
Sah'Bast'yun say of him Saba..
Saba Tepemkau Khenemetah
Taheret's Saba ... the love
of her life, her soulmate,
the light that dispelled
the shadows lurking within her shrinking world. The
Court called him barbarian,
but she saw in him charm, strength and the regal
spirit of a King... and he
was that to her.. her Nesew, Netjer, her Hi and
her Neb. Taheret had hired
him as Teacher of Language to instruct
Elsa in the Egyptian word
and Taheret in the words of his homeland.
[Coincidentally, Seba in
Ancient Egyptian means Teacher!]
Having bonded in the beginning,
the pact is sealed. Where he
goes, she goes. His home
is her home... and if he pass to the next life,
She will go with him.

-OOC- Things that make me wanna go
••This is my rant. I'm a bitch [Don't like it? I don't
care.] and these are my rules of play, which are simple common sense..
but it seems that some don't have the sense it takes, so here goes....
•Like I said before, this is a role playing game character.
It's a GAME.. chill out.
•I'm from the old school RP where if you want to know
what a character is going to do in a given situation, you need to play
the story out.
•I don't tolerate crossing [taking info one of your
chars has and using it with another char as if they know without having
rp'd it] or mixing [taking ooc info and using it ic]. Along with this is
mun pouting. If you get your char into a situation you don't like, do NOT
simply disappear. Moding your char from the situation is the lowest form
of RP, beb.
•I also have a pet peeve: hypocrisy and double-standards...
do NOT expect from me [or others] and my [their] char more than you are
willing to give or do. If you demand that I RP with knowledge, I will expect
the same from YOU.
•Taheret is my character, but that does not mean she
will do as I please. I follow the story and play her as she would do, not
as I would do.
•Again: Taheret is MY character, do not presume to
tell me how to play her. You play your character and leave mine to me.
•If you don't like how I play, the solution is simple:
DON'T PLAY WITH ME.. duh!
•If you act like a moron and/or RP like a jerk, you
will be speedy-clicked. Ignore is a right I excercize on a frequent basis.
•I'm really not all bad... mostly... if you're
honestly trying to fit into the RP, but you're having a little trouble,
IM me, I'll be glad to help. [See? I can be nice on occasion. ;) ]
•••[[I'm sure I'll be adding to this list as I go along.
Thankyou and Happy Gaming.]]•••
