A mummy is an immortal whose body has been ritualistically preserved. Most mummies are created to serve the forces of balance (Ma'at) or to enact the will of their divine patrons. The most famous mummies in the World of Darkness are the mummies of Egyptian origin, which were created by the Spell of Life. The eldest of these, the Shemsu-Heru, were once the followers of Isis and Horus in ancient Egypt. Not all mummies are Egyptian; the Capacocha originated in South America, and the Wu T'ian in China.
