Egyptian Lung God

Also known as HAPY, HEP

A Horus Son who looks after lungs

He is one of the four SONS-OF-HORUS. You can recognize him by his baboon’s head.

He’s in charge of embalmed lungs. Which means he sees first-hand all the grisly details of what smoking can do to you.

Godnote: Despite the similarity of names, HAP has absolutely no connection to HAPI. This is just a hieroglyphic mis-hap.
