Thutmose visited Erimem when she walked the tomb of her father after his death. The tomb threw many challenges at Erimem, yet when she was told to surrender, she stood and fought the apparitions that attacked her. Thutmose told her that she had an important place in history, and had to take the position of pharaoh, albiet briefly, otherwise history would change and the universe would be torn apart. He then erased her memory of what had transpired in the tomb.
In 272 BC, when Helena gained her immortality, and had been stabbed by Queen Asha, she was dragged downstream by a river, and eventually washed up on a riverbank. Thutmose appeared and led her to food and water, places where she could steal clothes and then onto other places where she could be educated and prosper.
Thutmose guided Erimem in the days before she discovered Helena's secret. He told her that Queen Asha was the greatest threat the world had faced. He also showed her that Earth's future would deviate due to these events, and in 2419 a fundamentalist cult would take control. This future would lead to the end of humanity, and guided Erimem towards averting it. (PROSE: The Three Faces of Helena)
