Everybody knows Isis—including you! She's kind of hard to track down, though. Why? Well, because she's the Goddess of Ten Thousand Names and a shape-shifter, to boot. She created a powerful snake whose bite only she could cure, to convince her father Ra to tell her his secret name. And now she has all Ra's knowledge and power, too. She'll do whatever it takes to keep her son, Horus, safe and protect her husband, Osiris, from dying forever. Queen Isis is clever, beautiful, and powerful. Gods and mortals alike want this goddess to be their friend. After all, she's a very dangerous enemy. People loved Isis so much that they kept worshipping her even after Egypt closed her temples, and her worship spread from Egypt all the way to London.
I have 10,000 names. Pick one. In Egypt they call me Aset or Auset. In Rome I am Isis, and sometimes people confuse me with my gal pals Tyche, Fortuna, or Demeter.
Other names: Queen Isis, Mother of God, Great of Magic, She Who Must Be Obeyed
Rome. Even though my ancient temples are museums now, they liked the pictures of me with baby Horus on my lap so much, they borrowed them to paint the Blessed Virgin Mary. How cool is that?
