Heba Sketches by CoffeeAddictedDragon Heba Sketches by CoffeeAddictedDragon
For those of you who don't know, Heba is the ancient Egyptian AU version of Yugi.

He's usually depicted in the fandom as either Pharaoh Atem's brother or lover.

It seems that in any depiction of him, he's either the practically invisible meek little brother or an ex slave given as a peace gift to the Pharaoh. Basically, he hardly has a back bone.

I see him quite differently.

Warning: head canon fandom time.

I think of Heba as a normal citizen of Egypt who lives on the outskirts closer to the Nile.
Long story short, the Pharaoh's court sends out word they they have need for a personal scribe for the king and many individuals try, are tested, and fail.
Heba however passes the first test and moves on to the second and final one. Upon entering the court, there's quite an awkward moment of silence as everyone realizes just how spooky similar the two look. Heba gets tested by the Pharaoh himself and succeeds and becomes his personal scribe and scroll keeper.
 
I feel like he would still be fairly humble and good natured like modern day Yugi with maybe a tad bit of humor reserved for particularly rude individuals he must deal with.

That is basically like, every fanfic I ever did read about anything relating to Yugi and Ancient Egypt. Lol. Now that I think about it, I didn't realize it was such a cliche until you pointed it out. I prefer your take on it.

Haha thank you. Glad you agree. ^^
Yeah, If Yugi can have a backbone then why not Heba? I think he's a rather under developed version of poor Yuug.
He needs some pictures where he's independent and proud.

Oh yes! For sure!

Yugi takes such a backseat! But you know what? I'm just as guilty XD. But I already have plans to change that, thank the Sky Gods!

By the way Heba is a radically cool name.

YES! That's also why I can't wait for the new movie to come here this fall. (I think that's when it's available here)
I personally love Yugi. ^^

Also, Heba I think means "Game" in Arabic or something.

Oh yes, something like this! :D

Heh, maybe he even have happened to pose as Atem at a event or two because Atem were sick and it was soooo important for the Pharaoh to be seen by the people (like, a anniversary of his father's death / any kind of victory in war) and if he just were at the balcony (like in the anime) no one might see the difference 

and I think he would be good friends with all of the Ancient gang (the priests and such)

Haha! Maybe, that sounds like one funny scenario. XD
Yeah, I think Heba would be pretty popular with some of the ancient individuals.

looking so similiar to Atem might cause some questions whatever Pharaoh Aknamkanon is his father too or if his mom is a unknown relative to one of Atem's parents

yeah, if Heba is a bit like Yugi, it would be hard to dislike him

Hmmm....I think there is some fine fanarts of Atem's mom which shows that he inverited his crazy hair-style from her...but it would have been nice to see the manga author draw a image of both Aknamkanon and his wife to show how similar Atem is to them

There actually IS a picture of Atem's mother somewhere in the manga. She has long hair black hair and looks a lot like Cleo Patra or something. ^^

yeah, I think that so (and the even funnier thing is that baby Atem is shown having the classical "lock of youth" in that image instead of his classical hair like in the anime! XD )

Him looking annoyed makes him look very much like Atem.  I love this concept and sketches.

He looks great!
Would be interesting if the two later found out they were brothers, eh? The look of Seth's face would be worth it! XD

If you wanna imagine they're brothers that's fine. I like to imagine that they just happen to look like eachother. XD
