Egypt is a country in northeastern Africa. Its monuments, such as the Giza Pyramid Complex and the Great Sphinx, were constructed by an ancient civilization, which was one of the most advanced of its time. This was greatly influenced by more developed alien races such as the Loric and the Mogadorians.
Giza EditLoric give humans the tools to build the pyramids as claimed by Pittacus Lore, though it is believed by Katarina that most of the pyramids were built by the Mogadorians.
The Second ship that travelled to Earth, from Lorien, crash lands in the Egyptian desert. It is virtually destroyed and buried under the sand. The Garde later discover a signal indicating that the ship is still in Egypt shortly before the Battle of Dulce.
Crayton, Ella, Lexa, and Zophie, who had been on the second ship, travel to the city of Giza where they recuperate after their year and a half journey to Earth. They sell some of Ella's family jewelry, but the Loralite attracts the attention of the Mogadorians and Crayton and Lexa are ambushed inside the pawn shop. They manage to escape, but are aware they need to leave.
The group travels to Cairo and prepares for their trip to the United States (in order to track the blog post which spotted the first Loric Ship). However, Crayton decides to leave the others with Ella and one of the Chimæra, named Olivia. Lexa and Zophie remain in Cairo until they purchase fake passports which allow them to leave the country.
