The Exhuminators Picture

Meet one of the UN-GDI Special Teams, the Exhuminators.

The Exhuminators is inspired from the FPS game from the 90's, PowerSlave while in European title called Exhumed and in Japanese called Seireki 1999: Pharaoh no Fukkastu (西暦1999 ファラオの復活). I dreamt that bizarre game and shit my pants which it came from the pawn store. I played that game via Abandonedware and it was hard to beat. But there's another versions of this game were released BEFORE the PC release! Yes, it's on PSX and Sega Saturn. The game was created by Lobotomy Software, the development team who are the responsible for porting Duke Nukem 3D, Doom, and Quake to the console version. During that time after the release of PowerSlave/Exhumed, Lobotomy was closed and remains inactive in 1998. But the fact is there was a sequel of PowerSlave right before the closure, the team working on that title but the only problem is it was cancelled when all the employees were let go or given the option to relocated their position in Crave Entertainment. And that's how the PowerSlave has ended.

Next is the characters. I remember the time when I watch TV in the morning weekend or weekdays (I don't know) and saw something cool cartoon show: Mummies Alive. One of the episodes I watched is "Dog Bites Mummy" and two characters who look like almost resemblance to two Egyptian gods, Set and Anubis. Set is like a hybrid jackal and bulldog while Anubis is very the same as the real Anubis which he has the head of jackal while the real Set hasn't. Among them is what really unexpected to me is there's other gods, like Bastet and Sekhmet. Bastet is very like the real goddess of her namesake while Sekhmet is a vulture but the real Sekhmet is a lioness and in later Egyptian mythology, she has become as Hathor. And last but not least is three characters. Two characters with no name appeared only in the episode "Pack of the Future" while Ammut appeared several episodes.

That's all for the details of how I draw this team. Enjoy my artwork.

Part time archeologists, part time tomb raiders. These Exhuminators from the Order of the Jackal are the experts on exhuming the dead and uncovering artifacts as well hunting down the cultists led by the evil Brotherhood of Apep dedicated to serve the evil. They battled their foes with their magic staff and machine gun (only Harkmed can wield that.)

Origins
The Early Days
Harkmed and Kensuri were the acolytes of the Order of the Jackal where they've studied magics, combat experience, and exhuming ancient artifacts. Life was good but too much for Harkmed because he had some badass attitude and hot-temper behavior but he and his partner passed the test. After years of training, they've become full sorcerers and the Exhuminators, a team of elite expert of excavation and tomb raiders.

The Valley of Ramses
Harkmed and Kensuri were sent into investigate the disturbance at the Valley of Ramses but only to find out that it was the cultists were behind all this but they'll discover more as they entered the tomb and found that they stole the corpse of the mummified King Ramses from his ancient sarcophagus. Then they saw the spiritual head of King Ramses and they were told that it was the evil alien race called the Kilmaats and they were the true responsible of disturbing the peace of the Valley.

As they were sent to the Temple of Gebi to recover the ancient weapon called the Sword of Horus, they were encountered by two exchange members of the Order of the Jackal, Masari Sarana, a student from the Order of Bastet; and Kimitha Hekheta, a deadly sexy sorceress from the Order of Sekhmet, at the Palace of Karnak. The two group agreed to work together and battled their way to the Temple of Gebi.

As they've reached the Temple of Gebi, they fought their way to get the Sword of Horus at the treasure chamber where it was defended by deathtraps. However, they used dead enemies as their cover to avoid deathtraps. But when they took the Sword of Horus from the altar, they were trapped as they were about to face their doom until they were rescued by two members from the Order of the Jackal, Teliko Al-Jaghal and Buruku, and together they've managed to escape the temple.

With these two so-called low ranking members' help, they went to the Temple of Set, where the cultist worshipped the deformed evil god and battled the gigantic false god himself. The battle was hard but not TOO hard until Harkmed grabbed his own non-magic weapon, the M-60, picked up from a dead unknown soldier, and defeated the evil god and literally destroyed it with massive damages by bullets.

So after that, the Exhuminators continue their task while Harkmed keeps his new and soon-to-be his favorite weapon.

Disturbing Discovery
On their way to find and recover the body of King Ramses, they travelled to the Scourged Temple Valley of Hellhounds and discovered the war camps of the cultists with their familiar symbol.

As they were spotted by the cultists, the Exhuminators were about to defend themselves but Harkmed puts them down with his M-60, killing all the cultists and destroying the statues of their evil gods. After a quick and short battle, they've identified the cultists' true name: the Brotherhood of Apep and they've also guessed that their nemesis was indeed attempting to bring their evil god back to the living realm and the Exhuminators must stop them at all cost.

As they were encountered by the spirit of King Ramses at the Temple of Horus, they were told and learn that the Brotherhood of Apep and the Kilmaats have created disturbing experiments, made with unspeakable horrors that they have used the essence of Chaos and their subjects they've captured. They were now tasked to destroy these subjects and free their souls at the alien Temple of Kilmaats.
They've travelled to the Temple of Kilmaats and infiltrated inside the temple where they've discovered the most disturbing findings: they've discovered the corpses of the Orders that they've been missing in action long time ago and since the beginning. And just they were about to destroy the experiments, they were spotted by the Kilmaats and the Brotherhood of Apep. There they faced their nemesis, Deshar Hanzar, the founder and the leader of the Brotherhood of Apep who was exiled by the Order of the Jackal; and his general, Wuhashi Khamur, who was responsible of wiping Harkmed's tribe out in the past when he was a baby.
Then, all hell broke loose when they fought their way out of the temple but not before they have to defeat the last subject, a insect-like monster, and slay it down by teamwork.

As they brought the head of the monster to King Ramses, they were now tasked to defeat the Brotherhood of Apep, cleanse the Kilmaats, and banish Apep before he entered the living realm.

Clearing the Kilmaats Out
The Exhuminators fought their way to reach their new destination: the Forbidden Temple of Apep and the Kilmaats' mothership, next to the Temple.

There they fought through their way to find Hanzar and Khamur and stop Apep before he could be released. As they've reached the main chamber, they found their nemesis but it's a little late for that when the ceremony has begun. Harkmed must face his destroyer while Kensuri must face the exiled member of the Order and the rest must disrupt the ceremony which they did to figured it out how to seal Apep away.
Harkmed and Kensuri managed to defeat their nemesis by using combined strength of bullets and magic (although it doesn't mixed well but only temporally.)
As they've managed to seal Apep away for good and destroyed their ceremony, the Exhuminators have learned that the Kilmaats have activated the self-destruct sequence from their ship and they must deactivate the sequence before the entire kingdom of Aegyptus will be wiped out.

As they raced against time, they fought their way into the mothership and deactivated the power nods connected to the self-destruct sequence as well eliminating the Kilmaat warriors.
As they entered the last chamber which it turns out to be the Kilmaats' throne room, they encountered the leader of the Kilmaats and self-proclaimed so-called the pharaoh of the galaxy himself, King Kilmaatkhan, and he's holding the corpse of King Ramses. And for the first time, they battled against King Kilmaatkhan in his first form then they were teleported to his domain of emptiness space realm and battled his second and true form. In a long hard battle, they finally defeated King Kilmaatkhan and recovered the corpse of King Ramses but they warned that the Kilmaats will return when the time is right but the Exhuminators will be ready for them. And then, they were teleported back to the real world by King Ramses himself and brought it back to the rightful place in the Tomb of Ramses.

As their tasks are completed, the Exhuminators were thanked by King Ramses and rewarded with new powers to combat the ultimate evil, knowing that the Brotherhood of Apep will return for revenge and they'll be ready for them. They returned to the Order of the Jackal and they were congratulated by them and the Temple of the Ancients for their heroic action for saving Aegyptus.

Their names will be remembered throughout the ancient history.

Aftermath
In the modern day in Egypt, the Exhuminators were seen by archeologists at the Valley of Kings, restoring ancient tombs of pharaohs as well uncover ancient artifacts. Later after that, they were recruited by the UN-GDI as one of their special team as the archeology experts.
