Hapi

Profile

Hapi might look like a harmless green-blue man, but there's way more to him. He's the god of the Nile and Egypt's life source, so you'd better treat him with respect. If you want to make a house call, head down to the water's edge. He's usually swimming or, you know, being the water itself.
