Who's big, green, and knows how to set broken bones? That's right—Sobek. He's the god of the Nile crocodiles and one of ancient Egypt's doctor gods. If you're sick, you can go to his temple at Kom Ombo and be healed. Need surgery? Take a number, and one of his sacred crocs will lead you to the operating rooms behind the temple. We don't know about you, but we'd trust this guy with our lives.
Suchos, Son of Set, Lord of the Bakhu-Mountain, The Merciful, Sobek the Rager, Green Machine, Doc Croc, Sobek-Ra
I don't like cities. I live in the Nile.
