Nick Morton is a former sergeant in the U.S. Army.[1]


Service in the militaryEdit

Nick Morton served in the United States Army, earning the rank of sergeant. He eventually retired.[1]

Uncovering AhmanetEdit

Nick travelled to the Middle East[2] along with his partner Sgt. Chris Vail. [3]They accidentally discovered the tomb of Ahmanet after staging an airstrike on an insurgent stronghold. Upon arriving, he stole a map from Jenny Halsey.[4] Nick and Chris Vail were then assigned to assist Jenny Halsey to investige an entombed Princess Ahmanet. While within the region, he incidentally unearths the tomb of the princess Ahmanet and inadvertently resurrects her.

Recovering from a plane crash and meeting AhmanetEdit

Following of the unearthing, Morton travelled in an airplane. As he witnessed seeing his colleague Sgt. Vail stabbing Greenway, Vail started attacking the group before Morton shot him.

A huge swarm of crows eventually assualted the plane, killing the pilots and the rest of the crew, apart from Jenny, who was off parachuted by Nick. The plane eventually crashed and left the casualities of Nick and the rest of the crew. A day later, Nick, however, was unscathed, waking up in a morgue in Oxford. Eventually, he brought Jenny to a bar and then saw Vail. He followed him and hid in the female's toilet, discovered from Vail's ghost that he had been cursed by Ahmanet.

He was eventually taken to Prodigium by Henry Jekyll, the organization's leader. There, he came face to face with the mummy he'd unleashed, Ahmanet.[3]
