Egyptian War God

Also known as Resep, Reshef, Resheph, Reshpu

God of War, Battle and Military Operations

Originally a Warrior God from Syria (see Reshef), he was drafted into the Egyptian pantheon and found himself part of a triad alongside the sexy love deities Min and Qadesh.

Preferring to make war, not love, Reshep spends most of his time brandishing an axe. He also seems capable of summoning thunder and lightning. War Gods are good at that kind of thing.
