although I added these two to "heretics" technically they were not heretics to the ancient Egyptians as they lived in a society that worshipped the old gods - however from a religious (Abrahamic) viewpoint they would be seen as heretics and opponents of God, their true purpose however was to provide Moses with a challenge and harden Pharaoh's heart by convincing him that Moses was a fraud (at least until the Ten Biblic Plagues were unleashed) One-Above-All 14:58, October 9, 2010 (UTC)

Hotep and Huy aren't really designed to harden Rameses' heart (his pride and arrogance do that) - Hotep and Huy are simply nasty, vindictive jerks that want to make Moses' life miserable (likely due to the pranks he and Rameses used to play on them as kids) Inferno Pendragon 02:51, October 13, 2010 (UTC)

I was wondering about the 'Heretics' thing myself for them but you bring up a good point, the story is out of the Bible and it was writen as a Jewish story, the movie is based on that story not historical events, even though history and religion can overlap.Though Exodus only casually mentions Pharaoh's priests and none by name as the movie does I suppose in the context of a Hebrew story they would count as Heretics, to the intended reader if not the story's setting.
