Case File: Osiris vs. Atum

Police Reports

Case description: The god Osiris accuses his great-grandfather, Atum, of promoting incest. Atum sat by and watched his own son and daughter get married—and the pattern continued. As a result, Osiris is seeking damages to the tune of $1 million, claiming that his strained relationships with his siblings and hideous green color are a result of such inter-familial relationships.

Case status: Dismissed. Osiris gave it up, since he realized there wasn't anyone else for his grandparents to procreate with; also, he couldn't do much from beyond the grave.
