Apophis

Profile

Outside creation lurks Apophis: the biggest, baddest serpent of one hundred percent pure evil that ever dribbled out of the mouth of a creator god by mistake. Ancient Egypt's Big Bad made life difficult for everybody—including the gods—and the gods spent a lot of time battling Apophis back into his lurking pit o' chaos.

If you wake up one morning and the sky is red, it's because Seth's slaughtered Apophis again, so Ra (the sun) can rise. These two have been battling it out every single morning since ancient Egypt wasn't ancient, and maybe even before then. But we have to give it to Apophis: Like that famous bunny in the battery commercials, even though he's lost every sunrise battle (so far), he just keeps on going.
