Egyptian Water Goddess

Also known as Tefenet, Tefent, Tefnet, Tphenis

Lion-headed Goddess of Moisture and Wetness

Mostly water, rain, dew, and bodily fluids of an unmentionable nature. She’s also fond of spitting.

Created by Atum, Tefnut is the twin sister of Shu, with whom she consorted to produce the Earth (Geb) and Sky (Nut). At some point she appears to have married a very obscure God named Tefen, of whom nothing is known whatsoever.

Nowadays she drifts around making dew and keeps everything fresh.
