Most people think death when they see a vulture. Not so in ancient Egypt! Nekhbet, the vulture goddess of the Nile, protected Egypt's kings and their famous white crown. So, unless you were Pharaoh's enemy, about to be run down with his chariot…not so much vultures and death. (Hm. Maybe we need to rethink this?)

Of course I had parents, but nobody knows who they were. Plus, ancient Egyptians thought all vultures were female and created themselves! Weird, huh?
None, though I adopt pharaohs from time to time

The Song of Ice and Fire series is great reading for my days off. I can't wait for the last book to come out. It'd be exciting to protect any of these kings! Except maybe Daenerys. Do dragons like to eat vultures?
"Paparazzi" by Lady Gaga. It seems like people with cameras have taken my place, hovering over the rich and famous. Buzz off!
I enjoyed the Harry Potter movies and books, and especially Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Just remember: Not everyone you think is bad or dangerous is your enemy.
