Steven often has strange dreams about another life and sometimes wakes up to find himself in another world. Therefore, he often ties his feet to the bed before falling into sleep, sealing the door ... to ensure that he is not dragged away by "sleepwalking".

After going to bed one night, he wakes up in another country to witness a cult meeting led by Arthur Harrow. Arthur asks Steven to return a bug-shaped artifact that Steven doesn't understand why he has in his hand. Steven realizes he cannot control his body at will, then he is hunted by Arthur's followers.

Steven wakes up in bed to find that his legs are still tied, believing that what he experienced was just a dream. But then, he discovered that from the time he went to bed until he woke up, it had been 2 days, a mysterious phone and key card hidden in his apartment, the goldfish the day before had 1 fins now suddenly turns into 2 fins. He receives a call from a mysterious woman named Layla, who calls him Marc.

The next day at work, Steven is confronted by Arthur - the person he thought only existed in his dreams. Arthur claims to be the embodiment or servant of Goddess Ammit. Arthur asks Steven to return the beetle, which he says belongs to the Goddess Ammit.

Who is Goddess Ammit?

Ammit, also known as Ammut or Ahemait, was an ancient Egyptian demon and goddess with the front legs of a lion, the hind legs of a hippopotamus, and the head of a crocodile — three species of largest "carnivorous" animals known to the ancient Egyptians.

Ammit lived near the scales of justice in Duat, the underworld of Egypt. Here, a person's heart will be weighed based on the feather of Ma'at - Goddess of Truth. If the heart is judged to be impure, Ammit will devour it, and the judged person is not allowed to continue on his journey towards Osiris and immortality.

Heart weighing is said to assess a person's purity in the past, present, and future. Thus, a person who may be honest and has not committed any crime can still be judged as bad and then to be killed to “prevent them from committing crimes in the future.”

Roughly, as world's first bogeyman, Ammit's approach is to "kill evil in its infancy".
