Nila Rahmad is the main villain from the twenty-third Goosebumps book, Return of the Mummy, and its television adaptation.


Nila is Prince Khor-Ru's thousands-year-old sister posing as a reporter (Or a journalist at least in the television version) and had a necklace which is a amber pendant identical to Gabe's pendant (Except it lacks the scarab), she was living for 4,000 years thanks to her pendant. Her goal was to reanimate her mummified brother to reign with him again. Unfortunately for her, Khor-Ru wants to rest in peace, so he tried to choke her to death when she awakened him. In a scuffle, Gabe shatters her pendant, causing her to revert to a scarab and she crawl away. She also may or may not killed Gabe by biting him.
