Unlike most Moon Gods of Time, he is not an ancient figure with a long beard. In fact he’s a bright young thing who loves intellectual games and quizzes. When he isn’t holed up with THOTH playing Trivial Pursuit, he cures the sick by expelling demons.
Long ago, his fame spread far and wide and he was called to some distant domain called Bekhten to cast out a demon inside a princess. They were so pleased with the results they tried to keep him for themselves.
After a time, KHONSU got homesick. He recalled the demon and made an arrangement that the demon would leave the domain forever if a small sacrifice was made.
This was done and eventually KHONSU managed to slip back to Egypt — leaving behind a replica of himself in statue form.
If this all sounds too exciting, perhaps you might prefer his older and slightly more dignified lunar associate IAH. We always like to give you a choice.
