Walt Stone is one of the new trainees that Sadie and Carter are training along with Jaz and originally comes from Seattle, Washington. He is known as a sau; a charm maker. He is one of Sadie's two love interests and as of The Serpent's Shadow, Anubis' first human host.
Walt comes from a family descended from Akhenaton. Due to Akhenaton's wish to destroy the worship of the gods, priests cursed Akhenaton and his offspring, which is why the pharoah Tutankhamen (his son), and later descendants died at an early age. Practicing magic tends to speed up the curse, so Walt uses amulets, which store magic in advance. He lived in Seattle before and is a natural sau (charm maker). His dad had died from the curse (Akhenaton is from his dad's side) and his mother was very worried about how Walt has until about age sixteen, though Tutankhanem died at eighteen. No doctors could help, though, and it seemed Walt would die soon.
- Walt is seen in the beginning stealing the Khnum artifact from the Brooklyn Museum. He and Jaz were caught holding hands, and Sadie misinterprets this. Later, he is with Carter in his room after breakfast, and run off to save Sadie in London. He is then kicked out by Bes, who knows what Walt was dealing with. He comes in afterwards when Sadie and him look for the third scroll. In the end, Walt and Zia transported home while Sadie and Carter went through the Duat. The Kanes' original plan had been to interogate Menshikov (as he was descended from the priests who cursed Akhenaton) while he was trapped, but Vlad's price was to side with Chaos. The plan failed as Vlad died, and Sadie felt guilty, much to the disappointment of Walt.
- Walt is first seen in the museum examining the jewelry in the display case. Later when they go to see the scroll he stops by King Tut's throne and becomes lost in a trance. He helps to battle Apophis, but it causes him great pain as he's so near death. He joins Sadie in a quest to retrieve Bes' sheut to restore him to normal, though he is aware that this will likely be his last act. The two manage to reach the sheut, with Walt trying and failing to explain something to Sadie about his upcoming death.
- By the time the two reach the sheut, defeating Neith along the way, Walt is near death and Anubis appears, asking him something, telling him it would be their last chance. Walt agrees, saying he can't leave Sadie which Anubis concurs with, saying neither can he. Walt, as his last act, works to restore Bes, explaining to Sadie that it is actually very simple in contrast to what Setne told them and has her watch him perform the spell so she'll know what to do for Apophis. Walt binds the sheut to a shabti and gives Sadie instructions on how to finish the job and later destroy Apophis. Sadie succeeds in restoring Bes and Walt dies, but comes back to life moments later and warns Sadie that Setne has betrayed them and she must save Carter, creating a portal to his and Zia's location. Walt tells Sadie he'll meet her at the First Nome at sunrise if she doesn't hate him for what he did as he's still too weak to come now. When she doesn't understand, he tells her to look deeper and she does and finally understands how he is still alive and what he had been planning with Anubis: Walt is now the host of Anubis and the eye of the god. His power to turn things to dust had come from following the god's path and the two had been planning this so they could both be with Sadie and Walt could survive.
- Sadie departs and later meets up with Walt/Anubis during the battle in the Hall of Ages. Walt protects Sadie, proclaming that both he and Anubis will not let anything happen to her and dispatches Sarah Jacobi and Kwai. Walt/Anubis participates in the battle against Apophis and helps hold him off as Carter and Sadie destroy him. Walt disappears after the battle as the other gods leave the Earth and Sadie fears she will never see him again.
- In the end, even though all of the other gods leave the Earth, Anubis is allowed to remain in Walt as the gods once did with the pharaohs, keeping him alive and never able to leave him without Walt dying and the two, now one being, start a relationship with Sadie, allowing her to be with both of the boys she loves. According to Ruby Kane, this gives both Walt and Anubis the chance to live a normal life which neither of them had ever had before.
