Imhotep was an Ancient Egyptian doctor, engineer, and architect. He helped design the Step Pyramid for the Pharaoh Djoser. He was one of the first scientists, his medicine revolutionized Egypt. He was one of the few commoners in Ancient Egypt who was deified after his death, and was identified with the god Thoth and was thought to be the son of Ptah.
Unfortunately, Imhotep is often depicted as a villain do to the character in The Mummy who had the same name.
