The main character of Unreal Championship 2, Anubis is a prince of the illustrios Reydi family, whose ancestors include 14 former Nakhti Emperors. Favored to win the tournament ten years ago, Anubis left on the eve of the competition. Some say he was a coward; others speculate that political scheming forced him from the tournament. He has served in the Desert Legion for over a decade, honing his combat skills and revealing none of his secrets.In the game, he signs up for the Ascension Rites (now sponsored by the Liandri Corporation) with his friend Sobek, in order to stop Selket from becoming the Empress and thus condemning the Nakhti citizens to slavery in the hands of the Liandri Corporation.Tropes related to him:
A Day in the Limelight: Aside of the Ascension Rites, he has his own ladder, unlocked after beating the Rites. It follows him in the aftermath of the Rites' events.
An Offer You Can't Refuse: Subverted. In the finals' aftermath, a Liandri officer convinces him to both resurrect Selket via the highly expendable Necrification process and to fight in the main Tournament.
Liandri officer:It needn't end this way. She needn't end this way. Not even the Nakhti emperor can afford the Necris process.
Anubis:But you could... is that what you mean?
Liandri officer:Exactly. You keep winning, we keep paying.
Screw the Money, I Have Rules!: A variant. Before the quarterfinals, he's offered to join Thunder Crash, thus avoiding all the posterior drama, something he rejects because of his own mission. He ends subverting this in the end.
Selket's new boyfriend, he's the scion of a powerful royal family. He's idolized throughout the land for his sports talents, not to mention his jawdropping beauty. His good looks are so heavily insured that the underwriting company requires him to wear a full-face helmet in the tournament.Tropes related to him:
Years ago, the Torgr tribe, led by the brutal Torgr himself, murdered Szalor's clan, and those who were left were made slaves. Szalor tried to die fighting his captors and thus regain a small measure of honor, but he only impressed the Torgr with his ferocity. The Torgr, for this reason, entered Szalor into the tournament, hoping to watch an entertaining death. If he manages to win, however, he will be set free. Szalor's ladder takes him through the road for his survival.Torgr, on the other hand, sees total galactic Skaarj dominance so clear, that for him is practically a fact, just waiting for the historic moments to come. He hopes that a grand Tournament victory (whih no Skaarj ever has achieved) will prove him worthy of being Consort to the Queen, and unifying the Skaarj and their slave races in his ultimate designs of intergalactic conquest. His ladder storymode takes him though the path to make his dreams of universal dominance a reality.Tropes related to them:
