Early Life

Mr. Faust was born in the United Kingdom to a family descended from Ramesses II, however he did not practice magic. He eventually married and had a daughter, who gave him two grandchildren.

Death of Daughter

One day his daughter died stopping Apophis from escaping the Duat. Mr. Faust blamed Julius Kane, his former son-in-law, for Ruby's death. After her death, he and his wife gained custody of Sadie; it is implied that they did not wish for custody of Carter due to his resemblance to Julius and greatly favor Sadie for her resemblance to her mother.

They keep a shrine to Ruby in their house decorated with pictures of Ruby and her favorite jewelry.

Ruby Kane, his daughter

After the explosion at the British Museum, the Fausts and the Kane family are visited by Amos Kane and Mr. Faust reluctantly lets Sadie go with Amos and Carter, as he knows it is Sadie's destiny.

Although Mr. Faust is noted to have a temper, he is also very kind, particularly to Sadie.
