Imagine there’s a man with a lion’s head standing behind you, with two giant knives in his hands. Sorry to break it to you, but he’s not your imagination: He’s Ma’ahes, the original Avenger, and the biggest, baddest, most brutal god northern Egypt has to offer. (Down south, toward Nubia, there’s another guy just like him called Apedemak. Maybe they’re the same god, but nobody’s got the guts to ask.)
Ma’ahes, Maa-hes, Maihes (Mihos or Miyeses to the Greeks)
True Beside Her, Lord of Slaughter, The Punisher, The Red Lord, Son of Sekhmet, Lion-O
Taremu (Leontopolis, modern Tell el Muqdam) or Per-Bast (Bubastis, modern Zagazig)
I kick butts and take names. (I’m a war god. What do you expect?)
Battlefield Earth (the place, not the movie)
Kill ‘em all and let Ra sort ‘em out
Nefertem and sometimes Imhotep are my brothers
Snoop Lion (just kidding)
Apep (Apophis). I really hate that guy… er, snake… er… Whatever he is, I hate him.
War, not love
