Pet Name: mnupti
My name is mnupti, I am a Blumaroo of the Lost Desert. This is my story.
I was not always a Blumaroo. I was formerly an Acara, a denizen of the sea.
But that was not my true form and my owner, smenkhkapep, knew this. My
master is an ageless wanderer from BN (Before Neopia), and I was his pet
during his days as a warrior and artificer of the sandy dunes of the ancient
lands. When my old form died, Smenkhkapep did not replace me with a new pet.
Instead, he waited for the time when I would be reborn into Neopia.
When that time came, I was reincarnated in the form of an Acara, an aquatic
pet! Smenkhkapep was disappointed, but he adopted me and cared for me as he
had millenia ago. He promised that one day, I would return to my true form.
Thus began his quest for magic items and the homeland where I truly
For a time, Smenkhkapep disappeared from Neopia. He was gone for many moons,
and I was left on the verge of dying from thrist and hunger. But my owner
returned, as he promised, bringing with him news of the discovery of the
Lost Desert and strange magical items which he said would restore me to my
The first of these items was a Blue Blumaroo Morphing Potion. Smenkhkapep
told me to imbibe the mysterious blue liquid, and told me not to be afraid.
I had faith in my master, thus I bravely opened the potion and drank it
straight up. It had a mildly bitter taste, but was not unpleasant.
After a few moments, my body began to tingle, and I felt a burning sensation
from within me... my insides began to swirl, and strange bumps began to push
from inside my body as though something wanted to get out! But instead of
being frightened by this, I found myself getting more excited. And the
burning sensation transformed into a feeling of calm and joy! I was turning
into a Blumaroo!
My rich, green fur began to disappear. In its place grew a smooth, shiny
coat of blue. My horns shrank into bulbous ears, and I felt my small Acara
tail balloon into a strong and springy Blumaroo one! While all this might
have seemed new, I felt that it was all so familiar.
Smenkhkapep had restored me to my form when I was his pet from the first
days of Neopia!
But my excitement would only double with what Smenkhkapep had in store. We
journeyed from the shores off Maraqua and wandered deep into the Haunted
Forest (I wasn't frightened by this. I have helped the Brain Tree find many
answers). We walked for days until we found the edge of the forest that led
to... sand dunes!
One glance at the golden sands and I knew my master had found his ancient
homeland! It was the Lost Desert! Perhaps I would once again see the old
City of Sakhmet!
In my excitement, I had almost forgotten my hunger! Smenkhkapep treated me
to a feast of refreshingly familiar Desert Foods! Mummified Peppers,
Baggusses, Cheops Plants, and my favorite (in my past life, anyway) Sutek
After I had my fill, Smenkhkapep beckoned me to come closer. He told me that
my transformation was not complete. As he said this, he drew from his
weathered pouch a magnificent object with magical swirls of gold and purple!
It was one of the most beautiful artifacts I had ever seen!
It was the Lost Desert Paintbrush! My rebirth into Neopia had at last
reached its completion!
Smenkhkapep waved the beautiful brush in the air and golden sparks appeared.
Glowing blobs of magical gold and purple paint flew into the air and floated
towards me, enveloping me in an entrancing barrage of colored light! Every
part of me that the paint blobs touched transformed magically! My skin
changed from blue to the sun-kissed tan of the Sakhmet natives, my head was
covered with a likeness of a local deity, and I was clothed in the finest
Sakhmet linens and leathers!
Night had fallen by then, and when the transformation was complete, I bathed
in the golden glow of moonlight bouncing off Lost Desert sands.
I was finally home.
During our first night in the Lost Desert, we camped outside the walls of
Sakhmet City. It was then that I caught a glimpse of the beautiful Princess
Sankara as she studied her curses with her pet Geb on a tower balcony. I was
She was familiar in a way I could not place. I heard that she was trying to
raise an army to reclaim her kingdom. I would give my life for her cause.
I have heard whispers that she murdered King Coltzan. Even my master has
surmised as much, but this I cannot believe. Recently, she has been
implicated in the theft of Coltzan's crown! I am saddened by this news.
These days Smenkhkapep devotes his time and energy to teaching me the ways
of old, royal Sakhmet. He reads many books to me, specially Sakhmet scrolls,
and feeds me only Desert Foods (and special Neggs, of course!). He has
recently bought a neohome in the Lost Desert and we've begun construction on
our Gold pyramid. He has put up a shop filled with the many wonderful things
found in the Lost Desert.
I busy myself training in the Neofu school in order to become more
formidable in the BattleDome. Smenkhkapep works very hard to raise funds for
a better arsenal for me. I dream of owning Battle Scarabs, but my owner
can't afford them just yet. One day, I will lead Princess Sankara's army to
reclaim her kingdom.
I will make my master Smenkhkapep proud of me as I did generations past.
