Evelyn purchased a dark blue Bedouin gown, complete with a veil. Evelyn's new outfit caused O'Connell to look on with even more interest than before and the four then continued their journey to Hamunaptra.
Evelyn and her group had set up camp within the ruins, intending to enter the underground tunnels of the ruins by using a tunnel near a statue of the god Anubis, which was partially below ground, and was said by the scholars at Bembridge to be the location of the golden book of Amun-Ra.
Evelyn wound up in a dark chamber, and beheld a walking mummy, the same mummy, in fact, that she had helped find. Screaming in terror, Evelyn stepped back, petrified at the sight of the moving corpse, which squinted at her with Burns' torn-out eyes, licking its dried chops with Burns' tongue and referring to Evelyn as "Anck-Su-Namun". Evelyn, backed up against a wall, saw the mummy speak to her in ancient Egyptian, offering its hand. Just then, O'Connell ran into the chamber to get Evelyn back but stopped in shock when he saw the mummy. The mummy then saw Jonathan, Daniels, and Henderson as they stumbled onto the scene, and roared loudly, which O'Connell reciprocated by blasting the mummy in two with his elephant gun, buying them all enough time to run away.
Evelyn O'Connell (Carnahan) was born in London, England to Howard Carnahan. At a young age, Evelyn acquired an interest in Egypt and its history, namely its artifacts. Commencing her career as a librarian, Evelyn ventured on an expedition to the ancient City of the Dead, Hamunaptra, where, along with others, she encountered an ancient cursed mummy known as Imhotep, which she helped to defeat.
At some point in the 1920's, Evelyn and Jonathan's parents were killed in a plane crash attributed to a curse connected to a mummy that Evelyn's father had disturbed, and as a result, Evelyn and her brother received a yearly stipend of several hundred pounds, which Evelyn spent according to her need, while Jonathan wasted the vast majority on liquor. Evelyn, despite being experienced in Egyptology, was denied an application by the Bembridge scholars in England at first, as they had insisted that she lacked experience.
Having an employment in the Cairo Museum of Antiquities Evelyn worked as the museum's librarian, sorting out books for the Museum's collection.
