Atum (Tem)

Profile

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.
