Summary
In ancient times, predating the pyramids, the evil king Memnon uses the psychic powers of his sorceress, Cassandra, to predict and see his great victories. In order to stop Memnon from taking over the world, the leaders of the remaining free tribes hire the assassin Mathayus to kill the sorceress. Mathayus ends up getting much more than he bargained for. Now with the help of the trickster Arpid, tribal leader Balthazar and an unexpected ally, Mathayus will fufill his destiny and become the great Scorpion King
