Scarab was the main antagonist of the cartoon series "Mummies Alive".
"I will destroy those Mummies. Even if I must shatter the world to do it."
He was an ancient Egyptian sorcerer who killed the pharaoh's son, Prince Rapses, so he could use the boy's soul to become immortal over 3,500 years ago. As punishment for his crime he was buried alive only to be reawoken in the modern era in order to pursue the search for Rapses' soul - which has been reincarnated into the body of a boy named Presley Carnavon.
However Rapses' ancient bodyguards have been empowered by the gods of Egypt to oppose Scarab and thus awaken in time to prevent the sorcerer from taking the soul.
Ever since then Scarab has been the group's mortal enemy and continually plans ways to cause havoc and gain power.
