Ptolomy Setepenre is considered by most students to be a neutral party. She keeps to herself most of the time and only interacts with students when they’re disrespecting her library. Those students earn her eternal ire, and she makes it a point to make life in the library as difficult as possible for them to encourage them never to return. At the end of the day, Ptolomy Setepenre doesn’t care for the students at all, and would prefer to be left alone in her library. She generally lets her staff of half a dozen mummies handle the fetching of books and materials.
Ptolomy Setepenre is not a professor and doesn’t teach. She operates the school library and cares for it as though it were the only thing in the world she loves. Students that make use of the library and do nothing wrong have the benefit of never earning her attention. Students that disrupt or misuse the library are ejected and are made to feel Ptolomy Setepenre’s ire any time they return. Ptolomy Setepenre fears fire, not only for what it could do to her, but for what it could do to her library. Any student careless enough to play with fire in the library might just find themselves the victim of mummy rot.
