Dadakai was born Aja son of Yuya a respected official who held many offices. Aja took the name of Ay when he became a man and joined the army like his father had when he was young. Ay soon rose to prominence in the court of the pharaoh Akhenaten who had recently married Nefertiti, Ay’s daughter. Akhenaten rose Ay to the highest rank of his elite chariot division as well as giving him the positions of “Companion", “Head of the Companions of the King”, “Father of the God”, “Fan-bearer on the Right Side of the King” and “Acting Scribe of the King”. It was then that Akhenaten moved to Akhetaten a new city Akhenaten had constructed in honor of his new god the Aten. Akhenaten believed that there was only one god the Aten and he wanted to convert the whole of Egypt from the gods of old to his new god. It was then the true masters of Egypt revealed themselves to him. The Mekhet, creatures who dwelled in the night and controlled the actions of those who lived in Ra’s holy light. The Mekhet were displeased with the actions of Akhenaten as his desire to relocate the royal court and alter the worship from the traditional gods of Egypt to this new Aten. They wanted Akhenaten removed from power and conventional order restored to Egypt. They offered Ay the power to have everything he ever desired he drank their blood and never felt more alive. Their blood made him stronger and faster than he had ever been before and with his new abilities and knowledge he was able to kill Akenaten.
After the death of Akhenaten Ay became the vizier while Smenkhare Akhenaten’s brother became regent until Akhenaten’s son Tutankhamun could become of age to take his place as pharaoh. As vizier Ay moved the royal court back to Thebes and restored worship to the traditional gods. Smenkhare ruled as Regent for two years before Ay was successfully able to eliminate him so he could take his place as regent as well as vizier in order to obtain full control of all the Egyptian empire. During this time he arranged for Tutankhamun to marry Ankhesenamun his granddaughter in order to secure his blood to the throne. Before Tutankhamun reached the age on ascension he and his wife had two children which Ay ensured did not survive their first year of childhood the make sure there was no line of succession from Tutankhamun. When Tutankhamun reached his eighteenth year his age of ascension to take the throne Ay endured that he too died thus allowing Ay to take the throne. In order to seize the throne Ay had to marry Ankesenamun, his own granddaughter. Ankesenamun attempted in secret to send a letter to the King of the Hittites asking him to send her a son to marry in order to avoid marrying her grandfather. Ay who discovered this secret deal Ankesenamun had made with the King of the Hittites ensured that the Hittite prince never made it to Thebes disappearing somewhere on his journey to Thebes allowing him to marry his granddaughter.
After his assertion to the throne Ay arranged for Ankesenamun’s death as she had clearly displayed her dislike for her new husband by attempting to prevent him taking the throne. Upon the throne as Pharaoh he took the name Kheperkheperure Irimaat “Everlasting are the Manifestations of Ra, born of Ma’at”. He ruled over Egypt as Pharaoh successfully for four years until the Mekhet Ay’s masters of the night growing scared of Ay’s ruthlessness and ability to seize power decided to remove him. Rather than merely killing Ay the Mekhet decided to punish Ay for his hubris. They took ay in the night and fed him their blood as they had done before but this time they mummified him while the Mekhet blood in his veins kept him alive to feel the entire process as it was carried out. Powerless to stop the process and in agony for every moment his heart filled with hatred for those who had betrayed him. While this happened he prayed to the gods for the power to avenge what was being done to him. They then sealed him in his sarcophagus locking him away in the darkness, dead but not dead, for an eternity of pain and torment. He was sealed in his tomb for a thousand years. A thousand years of pain, a thousand years to hate and a thousand years to plot.
