- "The Faiyum Oasis boasts life around Krokodilopolis by the grace of its canals."
The Faiyum Oasis is a depression located in central Egypt, west of the Nile and south of Saqqara Nome, that fed directly into the river. The city of Krokodilopolis was located on a series of islands in the southern part of the oasis. During the 1st century BCE, Berenike served as the nomarch of the region.
In 48 BCE, the Medjay Bayek of Siwa travelled to Krokodilopolis in pursue of the Crocodile, a member of the Order of the Ancients who murdered Hotephres and Khenut's daughter Shadya. Tracking clues to the city's arena, Bayek was able to gain access through an old friend Kensa, forming a team known as the "Siwan Warriors". After fighting through numerous opponents, including the champnions Viridovix and Diovicos, Bayek was able to identify the culprit as Berenike, the region's nomarch.
After leaving the arena, Bayek met with Hotephres outside, who directed him to Berenike's estate in the region. There, Bayek fought Kensa, who was hired by Berenike for protection, and defeated her, allowing him to assassinate Berenike.
