Rise and shine—it's the beginning of the world! Or it was when Atum, the creator of all life, first came to Egypt. You can find him in any number of forms—animal, human, or something in between—when he's hanging out at his chief temple in Heliopolis. He's tight with most of the gods, since they're his descendants, and loves looking out for those mighty pharaohs. This is definitely a guy you want on your side.
Tem, Big A, Tum-Tum, Lord of Heliopolis, Father of the King of Egypt, Sunman
My temple in Heliopolis, Egypt
I know it all—I created the world.
I learned from the universe. NBD.
None, I'm the first god!
I impregnated myself to give birth to Shu and Tefnut
The gods of Egypt; the Pharaoh
Foreign invaders; Nekebu-Kau the snake; Apophis the bad serpent
