You know him, you love em, Ra, also known as, Amun-Ra, Ra-Horakhty,and Re, was the sun god of the ancient Egyptians, and is THE archetypical solar deity. To the ancient Egyptians, Ra was the divine creator and ferry man of the sun, carrying it across the sky in his Solar Barge. Helping him out in his journey across the firmament was the cat goddess Bastet, his own personal cat-girl warrior-assistant, and in some areas of egypt, he was also joined by the lion headed god of war, Anhur. Another helping hand on his boat was Set, the same brother killing, cum-laced lettuce eating, eye-plucking jerk who fought with Horus. Why he helped out manning the solar barge is simple, the threat of the Sun-Eater serpent of Chaos known as Apophis, who every evening assaulted the sun-party to eat Ra, was too great that even a god of destruction couldn't ignore. Being such a popular god in egyptian mythology and a symbol of the ancient world, Ra has appeared in many /TG/ related media and tabletop games.
