An old acquaintance of the Medjay Bayek, Apate used to spend time with Bayek's son Khemu, hunting with him in the scrublands outside the village until 49 BCE, when Khemu died at the hands of the Order of the Ancients.
Two years later in 47 BCE, the Romans led by Flavius Metellus visited the Temple of Amun in Siwa, causing a path of rampage throughout the village. Many Siwan villagers were later taken away by the Romans, forcing them to work for them in Kyrenaika north of Siwa. Apate and her friends decided to become freedom fighters, travelling north in an attempt to free the Siwans. They later came into conflict with Brutus Severus, a Roman centurion from the Prasinos Outpost who brutally tortured his prisoners.
Despite fierce resistance, Apate was captured by the Romans and was brought to be crucified at a site south of the outpost. However, she was later saved by Bayek, who escorted her to safety. Later with his assistance, Apate led her fighters to attack the Roman fort, leading to Brutus' death.
