A Motherless Child was a visual representation of one of Bayek's genetic memories, relived by Layla Hassan through the Portable Animus HR-8.


Bayek investigates the untimely and violent end of Isidora's mother Nitokris the God's Wife of Amun.


Bayek explored the Necropolis of the Nobles upon learning the true source of the Curse of the Pharaohs. Entering an inner chamber, he investigated an open tomb and read a papyrus resting on it.

  • Bayek: A note from Isidora?
  • Mother: My heart is broken. And even though I know that you have returned to Amun's side, your loss is a dagger in my breast. Sleep peacefully in the Field of Reeds, Mama, knowing that I will carry on your work.

He read a papyrus on the floor.

  • Bayek: Merti left offerings here, to atone for what the tomb robbers did?
  • Forgive Me Nitokris: I leave this offering so that your unquiet Ka will torment me no longer. I took no part in what they did. But my heart is heavy all the same.

He investigated a stele.

  • Bayek: The priests of Amun were held in high regard.

He investigated a pile of scrolls.

  • Bayek: Isidora's mother sits at the right hand of Amun, as the God's Wife.

Bayek completed his investigation. A scene depicting what happened was shown.
