More about Carter Kane
Carter Kane once traveled the world with his father Julius, a famous Egyptologist, but now co-heads Brooklyn House, the Twenty-first Nome of the House of Life, with his younger sister Sadie. He also once hosted Horus, the Egyptian god of war. While that relationship ended, Carter has chosen to follow the path of Horus—that is, to channel the god’s magical combat abilities while not letting the god inside his head.
While he has a good sense of humor, Carter is a studious, serious, and cautious teen by nature. Julius had impressed upon him the need to always put his best foot forward—a need he believed mattered more for them since they were African American. Therefore, Carter wore khakis and dress shirts when he traveled with his father. Recently, however, he began wearing more casual clothes such as jeans, tees, and sneakers—though he sometimes backslides and appears in the outfit of a “junior professor,” as Sadie describes it.
Carter’s not a risk-taker, though he has been in—and survived—plenty of risky situations, including one that found him rescuing Zia Rashid, his future girlfriend. He’s never seen himself as a leader either, but he never shirks that responsibility when called upon.
Which is lucky for the world of Egyptian magic, because he was most recently called upon to assume the throne of the pharaoh of the House of Life.
