Case File: Wadjet vs. the People of Egypt

Police Reports

Case Description: Plaintiffs (the people of Egypt) accuse Defendant (Wadjet) of personal injury. Whenever they got close to the Lady of Devouring Flame, looking to pay homage to her or check if she was asleep, the Eye of Ra hissed fire at them and burned them to a crisp.

Case Status: Dismissed. After all, how can mere mortals charge a goddess, who protects the pharaoh, with something that might take her away from her job?
