Howls of the Dead was a virtual representation of one of Bayek's genetic memories, relived by Layla Hassan through the Portable Animus HR-8.

Description

The necropolis has increasingly been the source of mysterious sounds and sightings. Someone needs to look into it.

Dialogue

Bayek saw Haganu singing and playing his instrument in the Klysma Quarry.

  • Haganu: In the dark mountains, oh traveler, take care. The howls of the dead echo in pain. A spirit of evil won't let them rest.

Bayek spoke to Haganu.

  • Haganu: The mountains of the Sinai, hide the tortured souls of the dead.
  • Bayek: What is this all about?
  • Haganu: Have you not heard? The old necropolis up in the mountains is haunted by all the dead who cannot enter the afterlife.
  • Bayek: Someone should look into that.

Bayek traveled to the entrance leading to the mountains. There, he met Demet, along with his horse and a mummy on the horse's back.

Bayek carries Demet's wife's body into Old Necripolis.

  • Demet: Oh! Dearest Iset, protect me and my poor wife!
  • Bayek: Neb. (Sir.) Do you need help?
  • Demet: My wife is ready for her journey to the Hall of Anubis, but my knees quake with fear. What awaits me at the necropolis? I have heard stories to turn a young man's hair white!
  • Bayek: I am headed there. I will take your wife's body if you like.
  • Demet: Would you? I will be a thousand times grateful!

Bayek rode Demet's horse further up the mountain.

  • Bayek: I have a grim foreboding.

He arrived at the entrance to the necropolis, which was shrouded in mist.

  • Bayek: What fiendishness is this? The stories of evilness may be true.

Bayek carried the mummy off the horse and into the necropolis. He heard screams echo from within.

  • Bayek: What evil lurks here?

Bayek placed the mummy down on the ground.

  • Bayek: The storyteller's song may be true. These are the sounds of a wicked spirit.

He heard more screams, accompanied by laughter. Eventually, Bayek discovered a small entrance and slid under it. Inside, he found parts of human bodies scattered everywhere.

  • Bayek: These are the arms and legs of the dead! Someone is desecrating them.

Bayek went in further and discovered a man in the room.

Bayek confronts the killer.

  • Set: Who dares interrupt me? I am the incarnation of Set, god of chaos! He who dismembered Osiris and spread pieces of him all across Egypt!
  • Bayek: You are a desecrater and a murderer.
  • Set: You are the incarnation of Iset! Come to stitch her husband together. You shall not!

Bayek killed the individual.

  • Bayek: You will trouble the dead no longer.

With the errand complete, Bayek returned to Demet.

  • Demet: Is my wife at peace?
  • Bayek: No one will prevent her journey to the field of reeds.
  • Demet: Thank you, my friend.

Outcome

Bayek helped Demet bring his wife's body to the necropolis. Investigating further, he traced the source of the tomb's haunting to a man who had desecrated the dead, and ended his reign of terror.
