Egyptian Psychopomp God
Also known as Cherti
Retired Ferryman of the Dead
He’s a general purpose God of the Dead and also steers souls on their journey through the Underworld in his ferry. Compare Charon.
He has a ram’s head and is depicted wrapped up in mummy bandages. It must be hard to steer his boat like that.
Apparently at some point he retired and gave the job to Aker or possibly Aken. Where is he now? In the old folks rest home for retired psychopomps?
