Egyptian War God

Also known as INHER, ONURIS

Warrior God and regional remix of Egypt's top gods

He is a war deity and local mashup of RA, SHU and HORUS. His mother is HATHOR, he’s known as ‘The Killer’ and is dead good at slaying enemies.

ANHUR wears a very silly hat consisting of four tall plumes, but apart from that he’s pretty butch. He’s also a God of Creativity, perhaps to help him outwit his enemies.
