Ra (Re)'s Clique: Sons of the Sun

Is it bright in here, or did the sun gods come in? Ra and his friends always have to wear shades in each other's company.


This Greek god is the youngest of the bunch, but he's the friendliest. Things always get a little brighter when he shows up, with a box of poetry and a case of ambrosia.

Frey (Freyr)

Ra and Frey get along well, since the Norse Frey likes nice sunny days, and always has some cute girls over. Sometimes, they hang out on the deck of the Boat of Millions of Years and work on their tans.


These gods met when their vessels—Ra's boat and Surya's chariot—almost crashed one morning in the sky. Now they travel together, bringing the hours of the day to everybody.
