Case File: Atum, Ptah, and Aten vs. Amun

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainants (Atum, Ptah, Aten) accuse defendant (Amun) of defamation of character, for fabricating the story of creation to bolster his own political standing.

Case Status: Case dismissed. Aside from the lack of evidence substantiating the claims of either side, the complainants could not agree on a single story. Amun is allowed to stand by his story that he was self-made and possibly created a giant egg that birthed the Ogdoad. Atum, Ptah, and Aten will be allowed to maintain their individual versions, as well.
