Children of the Divine Order
Children of Maat
Characteristics and Aspects
Maat represents the concepts of truth, balance, order, law, morality, and justice. Maat was also personified as a goddess regulating the stars, seasons, and the actions of both mortals and the deities, who set the order of the universe from chaos at the moment of creation. Her feather was the measure that determined whether the souls (considered to reside in the heart) of the departed would reach the paradise of afterlife successfully.
She is represented as a young woman holding a was scepter in one hand and an ankh in the other. Her children look like normal humans.
Maat’s strongest relation is to Thoth .
Maat (spelled ma’at) literally means ‘divine order’, however as a deity she represented justice and truth as much as this basic principle. Maat had a temple in Karnak as well as memphis and Deir El-Medina. She was far more abstract then many other goddesses and so had few children with mortals.
Many hunters feared the children of Maat and so most were able to leave without being attacked. No matter where they go Maat’s children continue to follow the principals of their goddess, because of this they tend to professions such as police, lawyers, and judges.
Maat’s children have no enhanced physical abilities. Magically they have access to truth, order, law, and justice (Curses) magics. Maat’s children abhor the Oath of the Veil, though for practical reasons they follow it.
Maat’s children are dedicated to law, order, and truth in that order. These tenants hold the core of a child of Maat’s values.
