Believing in the only sun-disk god, Aten, the Cult of Aten sought to translate the Millennium Spellbook and send the world into eternal Light. The wielders of the Millennium Items, led by Tutankhamen, soon defeated the Cult of Aten. The Cult officially fell from power after Tutankhamen assumed the role of pharaoh and restored the traditional worship of the gods The Cult of Aten, however, survived to the modern day as it revived the founder of its movement, and has various members across the world as the Cult searches once more for the Millennium Spellbook... The Eye of Anubis The Eye of Anubis is a broken version of the Eye of Wdjat. It appears on all the Millennium Items, except the Key and the Puzzle (which has the Eye of Wdjat). The Eye will appear upon the foreheads of Millennium Item users whenever they activate their items. The Millennium Items The seven Millennium Items and their wielders are as follows: -The Millennium Eye (Re Vitakat) -The Millennium Key (Shade Murdock) -The Millennium Necklace (Saria Vitakat) -The Millennium Puzzle (N/A) -The Millennium Ring (Kamui Kyouko) -The Millennium Rod (Nesshin Tarang) -The Millennium Scale (Reserved) For information on the Millennium Items, click this link http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Millennium_Items The Millennium Spellbook The Millennium Spellbook is an ancient tome used to create the Millennium Items at the cost of ninety-nine human souls. With various spells yet to be translated, it is believed that the Millennium Spellbook can grant godlike power to whomever can wield it.
