Children of the Divine Order
Children of Set
Characteristics and Aspects
Set was a god of the desert, storms, disorder, violence, and foreigners.
Set is a typhonic beast, which most closely resembles a jackal or greyhound. Setites usually have canine features, though they tend to have distinctive forked tails.
Set’s siblings are Osiris, Isis, and Nephthys. He married Nephthys and fathered Anubis; and in some accounts he had relationships with other goddesses: Hathor, Neith, Anat, and Astarte.
Set is not a god to be ignored or avoided. He has a positive role where he is employed by Ra on his solar boat to repel the serpent of Chaos Apep. Set had a vital role as a reconciled combatant. He was lord of the red (desert) land where he was the balance to Horus’ role as lord of the black (soil) land. Set’s main temple was in Ombos.
When the rebel forces attacked them their most powerful warriors made a defensive action that gave the rest of their people time to escape into the desert. In the desert few could stand against them. They had some of the most extensive contact with other peoples and moved on quickly.
Even today the Setites tend to live in or near deserts. The Middle East, western US, parts of Africa, Australian outback, western South America, and China are their preferred habitats.
Setites have slightly greater strength and agility than humans. They also have innate ability to work storm, sand, chaos, and combat magics. They also have access to cloaking magic.
Setities hold to the Oath of the Veil.
