Case File: Theft of Ra's Secret Name

Police Reports

Case Description: The defendant (Isis) is accused of creating a snake and placing it on the road that her father, Ra, likes to walk every day. The snake bit Ra and caused him to become deathly ill. Because he did not create this snake, he could not heal himself.

Case Status: Dismissed after Ra declined to press charges. Isis herself healed Ra once he promised to give her his secret name. This seems not to be a case of theft, but of extortion.
