3. Discuss why it is vital that an abused child like Ranofer have people in his life that care about him and that he can trust. How might those people help mitigate the consequences emotionally and mentally of his brother's abuse?
Essay Topic 2
The more Ranofer thinks about it, though, the more he realizes that a tomb is the only place Gebu could have gotten a goblet such as the one he has. Ranofer is frightened because he knows the punishment is death, but he also knows that Gebu must be punished. This is a moral dilemma that Ranofer must handle alone because he does not want to cause trouble for his friends.
1. Why do you think Ranofer believes Gebu is stealing from tombs because of the goblet? Where else might Gebu have gotten the goblet?
2. Why do you think Ranofer is frightened because of the punishment for tomb robbing? Do you think he is concerned his half brother could be hung? Why or why not?
3. Discuss why Ranofer's decision is a moral dilemma? How could his friends get in trouble based on his decision?
Essay Topic 3
Ranofer is stuck in a situation where he is constantly afraid for his own well being and doing a job he finds desperately boring and exhausting. Heqet and the Ancient have become the only people that Ranofer can trust and rely on. It is a friendship that will hopefully help Ranofer survive Gebu's cruelty.
1. Discuss the emotional impact Gebu's abuse might have on Ranofer. Use examples from the book and your own life to support your answer.
2. What do you think Ranofer's friendship with Heqet and the Ancient might do to mitigate some of the emotional trauma Ranofer might be suffering from Gebu's abuse? Discuss the ways in which Heqet and the Ancient could help Ranofer.
3. Most children who are abused suffer many emotional, personality and physical symptoms. Citing examples from the book discuss these symptoms that are seen in Ranofer.
