Have you ever seen a mummy in its tomb? Cool, right? But have you ever noticed—near the coffin—four jars with either kings' heads or animal heads for lids? Those are the Four Sons of Horus: Imsety, Duamutef, Hapy, and Qebhsenuef, uniting like an underworld Voltron to protect a dead person from danger. Each one is in charge of a different mummified organ, and they carry them inside their magic cookie jar bodies. Yeah, these cookie jars are filled with guts. Yuck.
Four Sons of Horus
Our real names: Imsety (Imset), Duamutef, Hapy (or Hapi, not the same guy as the god of the Nile), and Qebhsenuef (Kebsenuef)
Duat (Osiris's afterworld, before his throne)
Keeping every mummy's vital organs safe:
Anubis and Sokar Funerary School
We serve Osiris and Horus
Horus the Younger (father, even though he's a kid. Weird.) Some say our mother is Isis, but ew?
Jackals, tomb robbers, grave rot
Nobody. We're kids and we're jars.
"No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet, death is the destination we all share."

The Mummy series is one of our favorites, even if they get it wrong and give Imhotep (and Evy) five canopic jars, instead of four. Do you count five here? Do you?
