'The runner', an early, violent deity in panther form, seen as a manifestation of judicial authority. A personification of the executional tool. She was one of the protective powers in the king's suite. Her claws was likened to the barbs of the king's harpoon, which he used to protect himself with in the Underworld.

The symbols of Mafdet was the pole, rope and blade of execution, with the deity in feline form climbing up it.
