Apep/Apophis. Evil deity of darkness and the enemy of light …. Egyptian God of Darkness. Apep is worshipped by none, his only allies are the demons who plague my boat as I sail across the sky. He dwells in eternal darkness, unable to be reasoned with, and immune to death.
Evil deity of darkness and the enemy of light…
Apep is a portrayed as a giant serpent that or legless lizard (a skink). images humans have made of him portray him a black with a white under belly and a giant wavy body. Occasionally he had wings in order to assault my boat. I not quite sure why he does not always wing, or why he occasionally breathes fire but that’s not important.
As I said Apep was not created, but some believe that Apep was once in my position until I usurped him, but I’m old an do not remember this so I’m not sure if it really happened. Some persons believe that Apep was there in the beginning with chaos, but haven’t been able to ask him myself.
Once a year a ritual was conducted by the “Priest of Ra” a wax model of him was taken into the temple and supposedly imbued with all the evil in the lands. The priest then went though a drawn out process a destroying this tiny model before it was burned. Also there was a set of spells to banish Apep. I did not have the heart to tell them but none of the things the humans did actually seemed to help me, but they were not hurting anything so I did not bother them.
No one worshipped Apep, everyone feared and hated him. This may have been why he was so evil, but he may have just been naturally evil. Although two of the rulers of Hyksos used him as their coronation names, but they may have just made a spelling error.
Apophisis not featured in many modern day pieces of media, other than Stargate.
