The Scroll was an ancient piece of paper that contained the secrets of life, death and resurrection. The scroll also contained the formula known as the ancient Egyptian rites of afterlife and ingredients to create the Elixir the potion that would be used to bring Andre Toulon's puppets to life. The magic on the scroll was born in the black fires of the beginning of time and belonged to Sutekh (although in Puppet Master II Toulon claims it belonged to Osiris, but in Egyptian mythology Sutekh did kill his brother Osiris so he may have stolen it from him). The magic was originally passed down to a select few sorcerers to use to give life to inanimate figurines but was later used for evil by Sutekh. Afzel stole the scroll from Sutekh's Temple in Cairo, Egypt many centuries ago and passed it onto Andre Toulon in 1902. Toulon kept it and guarded it with his life. According to Afzel, Sutekh and other elder gods are binding their time to attack mankind and will rise in a thousand years and only the secret of life can save the world.
