In Sam Barone's Empire
series, Hathor is an Egyptian, one of the officers of Northac. He is very loyal, but he is not a cruel man, and does not mistreat the Akkadians when Northac controls the city. He had a nodding relationship with En-hedu when she was selling items near the Egyptian headquarters. When Tammuz was injured during the fight against Northac, Hathor was touched that she threw herself over Tammuz to protect him, and spared their lives. In turn, En-hedu pled for his life when the Egyptians were defeated, and he joined the Akkadian army.
