In Egypt, the Pack, except Dingo, is working on the Pyramids for the Emir on behalf of Xanatos, while the Avalon travelers arrive via the Nile and spot the robot, Coyote entering an underground chamber. Goliath and the others follow and arrive as the Emir casts a ritual to summon Anubis, the jackal-headed Keeper of the Dead. The Pack prove triumphant as Emir binds Anubis and demands the return of his dead son.
The Pack leaves but a fascinated Jackal returns as Anubis refuses to resurrect the Emir's son. The Emir then uses the Scroll of Thoth to become an Avatar of Anubis. The travelers try to break free and the rest of the Pack arrives to take them out and kill them. They make a break for it and go to stop the Avatar ceremony. Jackal intervenes at a critical moment, shoving the Emir out of the way and becoming the Avatar.
Jackal turns the coyote robot to rust, reverts Wolf and Hyena to children, and ages Goliath, Angela, Bronx, and Elisa Maza almost to the point of death. Jackal now ages everything outward in a growing circle of destruction. Goliath then appeals to the Emir and attacks Jackal to distract him while the Emir takes on the power of the Avatar. The Emir restores everything to normal but with his newfound understanding of life and death, realizes no one can have such power and brings down the chamber about him while the travelers escape and the Pack disappears.
