MERETSEGER

Egyptian Dead Goddess

Also known as MERTSEGER

Cobra Goddess of Thebes

She is a coiled cobra with the head of a woman. As Guardian of the Royal Tombs, she ensured their protection by spitting poison at potential grave robbers.

If there’s one thing she can’t stand, it’s noise. Graves and tombs must be utterly silent or she gets very cross. Archeologists into loud music are duly warned.
