Mummies are undead, preserved corpses (commonly found in Egypt-themed stories) from the Goosebumps franchise. They have been mentioned in and appeared in over nine different Goosebumps books.

History

In a general definition, mummies are the bodies of human beings and/or animals that have been preserved either through ceremonial practices or by natural means if located in the right place (namely bogs and high, dry, cold mountaintops).

Mummification was a very important tradition in the ancient Egyptian religion as the physical body was thought to be needed in the afterlife. The following list features the process of mummification.

  • The body is carefully washed.
  • All vital organs, except for the heart, are removed. The brain is actually removed through the nose with the use of a metallic hook.
  • Not all organs are discarded. Some are put in specially made jars, each guarded by an Egyptian god. The stomach goes into the jackal-headed Duamutef jar. The liver goes into the human-headed Imsety jar. The lungs go into the baboon-headed Hapi jar, and the intestines go into the falcon-headed Qebehsenuef jar. These jars are eventually placed in the tomb with the mummy, as it was thought that these organs were needed in the afterlife.
  • The body is covered in a type of salt called natron, which removes all of the moisture from the body. The body dries in the salt for 40 days.
  • The body is wrapped in linen, which is glued to the skin with tar or resin.
  • Finally, the body is wrapped in a sheet and placed in its coffin or sarcophagus.

Powers

In The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb, mummies are reanimated if shown The Summoner, a small mummified hand of mysterious origin. Another method of resurrection was present in Return of the Mummy, where legend said Prince Khor-Ru would come to life if the six words "Teki Kahru Teki Kahra Teki Khari" were chanted. Once alive, mummies are shown to be surprisingly powerful and difficult to stop, especially in large groups.

Weaknesses

Due to their old, withered state, mummies move slowly and can be easily evaded in chases. The gauze covering them is also extremely flammable, making for an effective method of destroying them.
