HAROERIS

Ancient God of Light, and the original version of HORUS, known as The Elder.

He was originally the son of RA and NUT. But, feeling lonely, he switched birth certificates to be born by GEB and NUT. Just when you thought he would have settled down to family life he decided he didn't want to be the elder any more. So when OSIRIS and ISIS attained popularity, he decided to be reborn yet again as their son HORUS.

With a falcon head he went to cause much confusion, claiming counterpart shares with just about every other God with a similar head. Maybe this was the first implementation of copyright.
