Set
Description

The god of wind and storms, brother of Osiris and Isis, Set (or Seth) was once the Lord of Upper Egypt, counterpart to Horus, who ruled Lower Egypt. When Set's cult lost favor during the human struggle for unification, Set acquired notoriety as the evil god of desert storms, drought and destruction. Red-haired and crimson-eyed, pale-skinned Set is blamed for ending the golden age when Isis and Osiris lived among men and ruled over Egypt.

Set got Osiris drunk and killed him, then stole his throne and Isis, his queen. War and chaos prevailed until Isis retrieved the body of her dead husband, magically resuscitated his soul, and conceived the child Horus. After a convoluted series of events, Horus beat Set in combat, cast him into the underworld and took the throne. Horus still watches over the living in the person of Pharaoh, while his father Osiris takes care of the dead in the next world. All the while, Set battles Horus for revenge, sowing pain and discord through the land whenever he gets the upper hand. In the end days, Horus and Set will battle one last time. Horus will banish Set forever, Osiris will return to the earth, and all the dead will emerge from their tombs to rejoin the living.

Soldiers and commanders often want to worship Set, the god of conflict and strife. If your army wins a battle, many citizens will feel moved to give thanks to the god. The people of Tanis have made Set their patron, and honor him frequently there... more for his power and his earliest deeds than for his disposition.
