Once upon a time—according to Egyptian mythology—there was nothing at all. A giant flower floated up to the surface of the water that the universe was filled with, and when it opened, a beautiful baby popped out. Suddenly, the sun began to rise, and creation began. Nefertem, which means "beautiful and complete," was what the ancient Egyptians called this perfect baby boy. When he grew up, he became Ra. But until then, Nefertem was the gorgeous god of everything beautiful and sweet, including sunshine, flowers, incense, perfume, and healing medicines. (McDreamy, anyone?)

Healing people. Oh, and smelling good and looking nice while doing it.
I got my M.D. from my parents. And I went to beauty school (of course).
Ra is king
Ptah (father) Sekhmet (mother) But when I feel like it, I change parents. I can have Bast (mother) and Nun (father), or Nut (mother) and Nun (father), or Wadjet (single mother)… It depends on who's the best-looking set of parents that sunrise.
Imhotep (half-brother, sort of), Maahes (brother), Iadet (sister)
Germs, disease, anything that stinks
