Khnum's the master craftsman of ancient Egypt. With his amazing skills at pottery that allowed him to create humankind from clay, the entire human race loves him. He's an unusual fellow—he's got a ram's head, after all—but he's a loving and loyal member of the Egyptian pantheon. As a builder and a water god, he can be found all over Egypt, hanging out with everyone from pyramid builders to sailors.
K-Town, Lord of the Cataract
I have houses (temples) across Egypt. My main mansions are in Esna and Aswan.
Work & Education
Potter, shaper of mankind, god of water and the inundation
I took pottery classes with the gods.
I support Ra as king of the gods.
Family & Friends (& Enemies)
I've been a loner from birth, so I never knew my parents.
Ditto for siblings.
Sometimes, people say the sun god Ra is my son with my wife Neith, but how could one goddess have given birth to the entire sun?
The pyramid-builders—we all like building stuff.
The sun dries all the water up—it sucks.
My wife depends on where I'm worshipped. At Esna, my boo is Neith; elsewhere, my spouse is Heqat. At Aswan, I'm associated with two lovely ladies—Satis and Anukis.

"I was like, 'I want to sail down the Nile, I want to see the temples, the tombs and the pyramids. I want to be moved, I want to see something I've never seen before.' And it turned out to be the best choice that I've ever made." – Alicia Keys
"In order to be an immaculate member of a flock of sheep, one must above all be a sheep oneself." – Albert Einstein
"There are only three things women need in life: food, water, and compliments." – Chris Rock
The Mummy (I can tell you firsthand that this movie is accurate.) Black Sheep (I hope this never happens to me… either my ram half or human half.) The River Ghost (I love the pottery scene. Although, come on, who doesn't?) Creation (I don't agree with Darwin on creation… I created humans.) Death on the Nile Clay Pigeons (I prefer to make people, not pigeons, out of clay.) Fertile Ground (The Nile's pretty fertile ground for creation.)
