Background

While on a dig at an ancient Phoenician town in Southern Turkey, Dr. Annika Heyerdahl was approached by Lance Westin and the S.A.G.E. Field Team. What they had in their flying car's trunk intrigued her.

Clay tablets that appeared ancient bore eroded hieroglyphs. It took her two nights of intense work to translate their contents. Prophesy. Nearly all matched events that had happened in the beginning of the 21st century and appeared chronologically. At the bottom of the tablet were two last prophecies.

The first: "The priesthood of Set will arise once again." The second: "The red god will awaken and rule his kingdom once again."

Had further information not accompanied the tablets, she might have put it in the same category as the 'prophecies' of Nostradamus - vague and largely subject to interpretation. But, Dr. Westin presented her with evidence that a woman mage was calling herself 'Nephthys' and was re-creating the priesthood of Set. Furthermore, the tablets were stolen by the S.A.G.E. Field Team from mysterious men in what were described to be priestly robes, belts, and bracelets.

Without hesitation, Annika said "Yes" to Dr. Westin's question.

Personality

The only woman to be in charge of a S.A.G.E. facility (the Angkor Wat facility), Dr. Heyerdahl is a strong advocate of woman's rights. She is by no means an ultra-feminist, but does try to mentor women who have talent and potential. At the same time, she gets along well with her male colleagues and sometimes will even seem to treat male colleagues and underlings with less criticism (or expectation) than the females.

Quote

"Not all things past are dead."

Powers

Dr. Heyerdahl is a normal human without powers. One of the world's top archeologists, she has a vast knowledge of ancient languages and cultures.

Appearance

When not in the field, Dr. Heyerdahl wears fashionable clothing appropriate to the event of the day or evening. While doing archeological work she will wear white pants with multiple pockets and a short sleeved khaki shirt. She will often also have a white 'pith helmet' style hat, field goggles, and a bandana which is easily donned when there is significant dust as is often the case at digs.
