Adam Sinclair

Adam was just an ordinary 12-year-old boy with no special powers or anything to make him different from his cousin Justin. Until he went to Egypt and was appointed the bearer of the sacred scarab and told he was part of a quest to discover the seven ancient Stones of Power. Now, his senses are sharpened and he has dreams and visions that guide him and his cousin Justin on their subsequent adventures. Adam initially longed for an adventure ... now he's not so sure he wants all this excitement because it seems as if danger dogs his footsteps.



"We could have an adventure ... just a small one."

Justin Sinclair

Justin is bigger and better at a lot of things than his younger cousin Adam. Because things come so easily to Justin, he doesn't understand when other people struggle to achieve. He can be antagonistic when things aren’t going his way, and expects Adam to always follow him. On the plus side, he is quick to find practical solutions to problems and will apologise when he is in the wrong (after a while...). Justin loves food and whereas Adam will lose his appetite in times of stress, Justin will eat to 'keep his strength up.'



"When we were in Egypt, that's how things worked out. Adam did all the clever things. I just had to keep saving everyone from certain death."

Dr. Faisal Khalid

Everyone loves to hate a baddie and the most wonderfully menacing character is the evil Dr. Khalid, head of the Egyptian Museum. He is highly intelligent, odiously charming, and completely ruthless. Pivotal to the plot, Dr. Khalid is smooth, suave, compellingly hypnotic; he is the boys' Nemesis, with eyes, ears, and loutish henchmen all over the place. He pursues the cousins from the time they set foot in Egypt in search of the Seven Stones of Power. He is not the arch-villain, however; he works for someone far more powerful and sinister.



"I ... Faisal Khalid ... I will change history."

Isabel Sinclair

She is not afraid to dig for the truth and expose it; politics and social issues rank high in her interests. Isabel treats her nephews like young adults and expects the best from them. It takes her a while to accept that the quest and the Seven Stones of Power exist, but once she does, she is supportive of the boys' role in finding the remaining stones. Isabel is also instrumental in keeping the boys' cover story intact each time they go on another leg of the quest. Secretly, Adam and Justin hope she never has her own kids because they consider themselves the sons she never had. Adam is especially close to his aunt.



"We're not looking for trouble, lost archaeologists, or hidden treasure. We're going on a nice, safe tour with nice, safe people and that's all. Adventures only happen in books."

Gran

Gran is the kind of grandmother everyone would love to have. Feisty and young at heart, she is a glamorous granny, and loves hair-dos, nail polish, fashion, shopping, and loads of jewellery. Why wear one or two rings when you can pile them on all ten fingers? Gran is practical, never worries about things, and believes firmly in the kindness of strangers to get her out of any pickle. Gran is very perceptive and sees people pretty soon for what they are. She is extremely brave and sees things through to the end. Nothing surprises her and the idea of the quest is one she takes in her stride.



"Truth, as everyone knows, is stranger than fiction. How do you think writers dream up their plots? They just write about what people really do."

James Kinnaird

Archaeologist James Kinnaird is the only son (and child) of the Scottish Earl of Strathairn and is not really interested in swanking around being an earl's son, living the high life, doing a bit of fishing and hunting on the side. Tall, handsome, late thirties, with dark hair and blue eyes, James was born with a silver spoon in his mouth but all he wants is to fulfil his dreams of uncovering and preserving history's mysteries. He makes a point of searching for things considered mere legend. This has become his trademark, in a way.



"I'm counting on you both to help me. This is just the beginning."

Ebrahim Faza

For every baddie, there is a good person. Dr. Khalid's direct opposite is the benevolent Ebrahim Faza, a respected Egyptologist and Dr. Khalid’s mortal enemy. They have a history together that unravels as the book progresses. A now retired Egyptologist, Ebrahim is the former head of the Egyptian Museum. Together with his close friend, Hamid, he is one of the last living descendants of the original Guardians of the Tomb of the Scarab King. He is also one of the few people who are aware of the deep and mysterious past behind the sacred scarab. It is more than just an ancient artifact.



"Peril will be hard at their heels. Their lives may be in danger. Trust no one."

Hamid

Tall, thin, dark complexioned and always dressed in exotic red flowing robes, Hamid is a very mysterious figure that seems to know more than the other characters. One suspects he has a deeper connection to the entire history of the Stones of Power. In later books, he seems to know things already that Adam has just found out. He is almost a shadowy character and Adam believes there is more to him than meets the eye...



"The First Stone of Power is discovered; it’s only a matter of time before the others are revealed. They will be drawn inexorably to the first of the seven stones … to the sacred scarab."
