Case File: Ra vs. Bes

Police Reports

Case description: Ra, god of the sun, charges Bes with disturbing the peace. Whenever Bes scares off evil spirits, he bangs drums and makes a ton of noise. At night, Ra is trying to sail his boat through the sky—and the racket is really distracting.

Case status: Settled. Bes promised Ra that whenever he would help Taweret with a pregnant woman, he'd bring his own soundproofing equipment with him.
