Relationships

A Family Tree of the Osirian Pantheon

Ra is the father of Bastet, Hathor, Maat and Sekhmet, and the creator of many other Osirian deities. Thoth serves as his counsellor and secretary, and Wadjet supports him as the patron of kings.[1][2]

Apep, the great serpent who seeks to consume the sun, is Ra's archenemy whom he has to fight every night to protect the sun; he is often aided in this great battle by Bastet, Horus, Selket and Sobek.[1][3][4][5][6] Every sunrise is seen as evidence of Apep's defeat at Ra's hands, albeit a temporary one until the sun rises no more and everything ends.[1][7]

Cults

Ra is worshipped by both pharaohs and paladins fighting against darkness as well as by commoners. Obelisks representing petrified sunlight are always found in Ra's temples, which are open to the sky and where services are held in daylight.[1]
