Hair Color: Unknown (wears a hawk mask or has a hawk's head)
Facial Hair: In human form, a pharaoh's false beard. In hawk form, feathers on his face.
Scars/marks/tattoos: One near his right eye socket, after Seth cut his eye out.
Jewelry and accessories: Royal necklaces and crowns; two special scepters (called a crook and a flail) that show he is a pharaoh
