Pharaoh Atem was born as the only son of King Aknamkanon, where in his childhood he met Mana and was protected by Mahad.

One day his father took him on a journey in the direction of a tomb, where on the way Atem accidentally slips, where invoking his father’s help,

the latter told him to fend for himself, as he must be as strong as the pharaoh he will become.

Once inside the tomb, Aknamkanon made a deal with the monsters to spare his son from the repercussions of the horrific actions that led to the creation of the Millennium items.

After this event, one day Aknamkanon proclaimed the priest Seto to the guard of the Millennium Rod,

as well as his right hand, but the priest’s father Seto plotted against Atem, as he wanted his son as the only pharaoh of Egypt.

Later, however, despite the various clashes, Atem becomes the only pharaoh of Egypt, where during that day Atem is attacked by a common thief,

managing to understand shortly after that it was possessed. Just minutes after that, his kingdom of him was attacked by Bandit King Bakura.

which priest Seto regains his reason, while his father disappears completely.

While all of this was happening, Zorc appeared to combine chaos and destruction within Egypt.

Atum is the self-creating deity, one of the most important deities of ancient Egypt.

According to some interpretations, its name derives from some Egyptian terms that identify words such as: “complete” or “finish”.

In fact it is also interpreted as the finisher of the world and existence, the one who in practice created and can therefore complete the works by ending everything.

Atum therefore is the first Egyptian divinity who created himself, he subsequently created his children, the first divinities, out of solitude.

He created Shu the God of air, and Tefnut the goddess of humidity. The brother and sister, intrigued by the primeval waters that surrounded them,

went to explore the waters and disappeared into the darkness created in it. Unable to bear his loss,

Atum sent a fiery messenger the Eye of Ra to find his children, the tears of joy he shed upon their return are said to be the first human beings to be born on earth.
