Egyptian Destiny Goddess

Also known as NEIT

The Great Weaver Goddess of Fate

She weaves the threads of life. Upset her and she threatens to unpick the woven Universe. Bits of it already seem a little threadbare.

She was asked by BANEBDJETET to arbitrate in the fight for power between HORUS and SET. Thanks to her, HORUS was given supremacy and SET was given two compensatory Goddesses, ANAT and ASTARTE.

When she gets in a bad mood, she becomes the War Goddess ANOUKE.
