Egyptian Protection Goddess
Also known as Nekhabet, Nekhebet, Nekhebit
Vulture-headed Royal Protection Goddess
Curiously she has the job of suckling royal children. Perhaps it avoids any crying over spilt milk. She also has the duty of protecting the Pharaoh in battle using her full vulture form.
Crows and ravens are bad enough, but a Battle Vulture? On the other hand she’s on very good terms with her striking cobra sister Wadjet.
