Set, Seth, Sutek, the second son of Geb and Nut, depicted as either an animal with four legs, a curving snout, long ears and an erect tail, or as a human with an animal´s head. Which kind of animal this was has been subject to much debate. His skin was white and his hair red, he was called the god of chaos, of thunder and storms, of destruction and of the desert. He travelled with Ra in the sun-boat, standing in the prow, spearing the attacking Apophis serpent of chaos. According to myth he was jealous of his brother Osiris and betrayed and killed him, taking his throne. Through this action the deceased received a ruler in the Underworld and Seth was later beaten by Horus, the son of Osiris.
