The Price of Freedom

―Piye and Amenirdis[src]

Piye was the head priest of Zerzura, a city on the mythical island of Kerma.


"I've handled dozens of interrogations Mr. Beckett, but I've never seen anything quite like it. The old savage just closed his eyes... and stopped. Like a clock."
Ian Mercer[src]

In the early 1730s, Piye assisted Princess Amenirdis on her quest to Kush. When their party was attacked by slave hunters, Piye helped the princess perform the spell that transformed her from a beautiful princess to an ugly old lady. Once they were captured, he was sold to a slave owner in Calabar, on the west coast of Africa. He was later bought by Cutler Beckett. Beckett had found Zerzuran jewelry which had been taken at the same time Piye, Tarek, and Amenirdis had been. In Beckett's household, he was reunited with Amenirdis, who Beckett had discovered traveled in the same group. Beckett believed they were from the lost city of Zerzura. Upon being questioned by Beckett's operative, Ian Mercer, he closed his eyes and prayed to the guardian god of Zerzura, Apedemak, that he may die a quick and painless death without revealing any of his country's secrets. Being a very devoted head priest, the god granted his wish and his heart stopped immediately, leaving Mercer and Beckett clueless and confused.
