Your Field Guide to Spotting Sekhmet

It's hard to miss Sekhmet because, well, she's a lion. And even when she's human, she has a lion's head. Be careful, though. You might want to cuddle this nice little feline, but she's fierce. If you want to keep your limbs, you should probably keep your distance.
