His nickname is The Red God, but whether this is politics, hair color or sheer embarrassment it’s difficult to ascertain.
He’s a bit of a mix and match, with donkey ears, a scorpion tail, and the head of a mysterious Egyptian aardvark. He can also turn up as a hippo with the jaws and tail of a crocodile.
But one thing’s for sure: Set’s a nasty piece of work. In fact he’s the God of Evil Chaos, and loves nothing more than creating mayhem.
Not content with constantly messing up the peaceful farms of Osiris, he finally lost his temper and killed him.
Not one to fight fair, Set tore one of Horus’s eyes out, but Horus went straight for the testicles. (If you think that’s disgusting, you should read Min’s entry which has in-depth coverage.) The other Gods cheered and awarded him the victory, banishing Set to the upper realms of Ra where he became the voice of thunder.
He hasn’t mellowed with age. If he enters the body of a human he can drive them mad. We’re not surprised. It doesn’t bear thinking about.
