About Rick O’Connell
Portrayed by Brendan Fraser, Rick O’Connell is the main protagonist of this successful adventure movie. He wasn’t always a treasure seeker. Moreover, his past was very honorable since he was a captain of French Foreign Legion. During one of their missions, he and his battalion found themselves in the middle of Egypt. Deep in the desert, they were fighting with Arabs. The battle was short and his complete battalion was smashed. While trying to escape, he found himself stuck in the old ruins of the city of Hamunaptra. Arabs were aware that the old city was cursed and didn’t want to chase him anymore.
Three years later, Rick O’Connell was imprisoned in Cairo. He was even sentenced to death, Evelyn Carnahan saved him. She was a perspective Egyptologist who knew all those about the Hamunaptra and legends about the secret treasure. Since Rick was probably one of few people to know where this ancient city was hidden, she appointed him as a guide.

Moreover, he managed to beat the mighty Imhotep, who came back from the dead with great magic power.
