The Egyptians always thought of time in a cyclic way, so it was not a surprise to the members of this pantheon when Cronus found a way out of Tartarus and brought destruction to the world again. Yet, they didn’t stay unphased for long, as Cronus broke the cycles when he disrupted the reincarnation process, just like by shattering Asgard the cycle of seasons was broken, hence making the Nile floods impossible to predict and bringing desolation to the fields. Considering that Zeus hadn’t been up to the task of preventing the disaster, the Egyptian gods and heroes fell back to their ancestral Nile valley to gather their forces. This is only after that they discovered the arrival of the new gods Chaos had created, giving a new hope for the renewal of the old cycles of the world.

Egyptian Gods

Icon Name Description
Osiris Osiris is the epitome of the wise king and Isis’ husband. After his murder by Seth, Isis used magic to bring him back to life with the help of Anubis. Their son, Horus, avenged his father by vanquishing Seth before becoming king of Egypt. Osiris, on his part, became the judge and king of the dead, while also being a herald of life and renewal.
Isis When her husband Osiris was murdered by Seth, Isis searched for his body and put it back together with the help of Anubis and bandages, creating the art of mummification. This way, she also instated the cycle of resurrection so important to the other pantheons. Unsurprisingly, she is also the goddess of fertility and sometimes appears with a cow’s head or horns.
Horus Son of Osiris and Isis, he became the king of Egypt and effectively the first pharaoh after avenging his father. Seen as a god of vengeance, he is also god of light and sky, as attest his falcon head.
Thoth The ibis-headed god is the scribe of the underworld, consigning the verdict of the dead, keeping the library of the gods and redacting books containing the mysteries of the universe. This is why he is the god of wisdom, writing, magic and justice, often being seen as an arbiter.
Ra Ra is the sun god, associated as well with pyramids and the resurrection of pharaohs, dying as he is every night, travelling through the underworld during the night to be born again in the morning, crossing the sky once more.
Seth Seth, the god of desert and storms, of disorder and darkness, the murderer. If his body is that of a human, his head is a dog one and he can take the shape of many creatures like a scorpion, a crocodile or hippopotamus. His image is absent of most of the temple, so big is the fear he instills in mortal hearts.
Bastet Usually seen as a woman with cat head, or as a cat entirely, the daughter of Ra is the obvious protector of cats. Her maternal demeanour shouldn’t be misleading her for an inoffensive goddess, as she would protect her cats ferociously.
Ptah Ptah is the Egyptian god of craftmanship and the general act of creation. He is also associated with the idea of dominion and stability.
Wadjet The cobra goddess is the symbol of authority over Egypt, and the protector of Horus, sometimes appearing with two snake heads.
Hathor The cow goddess is associated with dance and music and often bears the “Lady of Heaven, Earth and the Underworld” title, being wise and taking care of both the living and the dead. She is a goddess of fertility and therefore specially protective of women during and after pregnancy.
Sekhmet Sekhmet is the goddess of war with a lion head. She is the one taking on the enemies of Ra. She is also associated with medicine, meaning disease and health as well.
Anubis Anubis is the famous god with the jackal head, the embalmer that helped Isis resurrect Osiris through the rite of mummification. He is the sheperd of the dead while going
Maat Maat is the embodiment of truth, morality, honesty and justice. She is the exact opposite of disorder and therefore a strong defender of cycles in the universe, putting her in the front line when it comes to counter Cronus’ influence.
