She comes in Hippo form. That’s heavy.
Despite the hippo status, THOERIS keeps a fairly low profile. Her name appears to mean ‘Mistress of the Talismans’ and she often seems to be pregnant which makes her a motherhood protection deity.
There is a darker side — she can pop up in the Underworld devouring souls of the wicked and brandishing a knife. Things don’t stop there as it would seem the constellation of Ursa Major may be under her control.
We think it wise to stop at this point. We don’t want her to feel she is being followed. There are rather a lot of Hippo Goddesses and much confusion with similarity of names. When crocodiles come into the equation as with TAWERET and you get crocopotamuses and hippodiles we tend to take the rest of the day off.
